Hermitage of Braid Murder Mystery Trail Edinburgh

Murder Mystery Trail at Edinburgh’s Hermitage of Braid

November is birthday month for us, with both my boys celebrating their birthdays – just ten days apart!

Luckily there are […] Read more…

DIY Apple Themed Kids Book Shelf

Today I have a cute DIY to share with you, for building your very own kids book shelf, which I think fits really well with Autumn as it’s apple picking season, but would suitable all year round.

Halloween Eyeball Mocktail

Halloween Eyeball Mocktails

Since guising (as we call trick-or-treating here in Scotland) is off the cards this year, I’ve promised the kids a spooky Halloween dinner instead, and we’re going to make some Halloween mocktails.

I’ve got a really easy Halloween cookie recipe to share with you today. In fact, it’s so easy, does it even deserve to be called a recipe?

Salt Dough Autumn Leaves

We have a vase with branches on the dresser in our hall, that I like to decorate for the different seasons. At Easter we had little eggs hanging in it, and over the summer our clothes peg dragon flies that we crafted. But it was time for a change for the Autumn, before the Christmas […] Read more…

Reading Journey 2020 books we read in September

Our 2020 Reading Journey – Month 9

As I mentioned in my post from earlier this year, I decided that this year I would record all the books my 5 year old and I read together. I’ve been snapping a quick picture of all the books from each day, and collecting them in an album over on my blog’s Facebook page – and now […] Read more…

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

Easy Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

The first pumpkins have started appearing in the shops, which means an excuse to bake pumpkin pie! This is actually a recipe I have shared before on my previous blog, but it’s so good I thought it needed sharing again.
