Review: Giraffes in Scarves Game

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that as a family we love board games. A lot! We love them all year round, but no more than during the gloomy later Autumn and Winter months, the perfect time to cosy down at home over the weekend for a board game marathon. […] Read more…

What Mummy is Currently Reading!

Hi everyone, this week has been really busy for me as it’s Oskar’s birthday this coming weekend, so I’ve been party planning and baking cakes. But I’ve managed to make a quick video of the new books that have made their way on to my reading pile recently. Maybe there’s something there that caches your […] Read more…

Edible Sparklers

Yesterday we went to see a fireworks display to celebrate Bonfire Night (which is actually today), so I made some fireworks themed snacks to take with us. These edible sparklers went down a treat! My boys absolutely loved them, and it made the wait for the fireworks display to start go quicker. These would also […] Read more…

Picture Books We’ve Been Reading in October

Another whole month has passed (how is it November already?!), so I thought I’d do another round up of the picture books we have been enjoying over the past month.

Salted Caramel Tart (GF)

So, usually I make pumpkin pie for our Hallowe’en party every year, but after seeing a great cake decor idea on the front cover of Tesco magazine last week, I decided to break with tradition and make a salted caramel tart instead. I used my own caramel recipe, rather than the Tesco one, because it’s […] Read more…

This feature was Oskar’s idea, because as much as he still loves picture books, he also wanted to share some of his […] Read more…

Chocolate Apples

We are having a wee Hallowe’en gathering this weekend, so Oskar and I have been busy planning what treats to serve up. He suggested toffee apples, but I’m not so keen on toffee or caramel apples as they are so terribly sticky and not great on the teeth. So we have compromised on chocolate apples, […] Read more…

Pumpkin Picking at Kilduff Farm

Is it even Autumn if you haven’t visited a pumpkin patch? Actually, we’d only ever been pumpkin picking once before, and that was last year when we had actually gone apple picking only to discover the farm in question also offered pumpkins. We enjoyed it so much, we jumped at the chance when we were […] Read more…
