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. These eyeball mocktails are not as creepy as it sounds though, the eyeballs are just lychees with blueberries. We gave the drinks a […] Read more…

Halloween Ghost Cookies

Marshmallow Ghost Cookies

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? Consider it more of a Halloween cookie inspiration – they just require a little assembly.  Ingredients 8-10 cookies. We used Sainsbury’s gluten free chocolate chip cookies, but you […] Read more…

Halloween Lego Duplo Ideas

It’s been a bit quiet on the blog over the past week, as my kids have been on their October half term holiday and I’ve taken some time out to spend quality time with them. But the good news is we did lots of fun Halloween activities over the break, which we will be sharing […] Read more…

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. And now, if you have to eat gluten free you don’t need to miss out […] Read more…

Foraged Apple & Bramble Crumble

For the past couple of years, we’ve visited a ‘pick your own’ farm in Autumn to go apple picking. This year, with everything needing booked in advance and a long bus ride with masks not sounding very appealing, a family friend of ours took us to a nearby public orchard instead – it was less […] Read more…

Jupiter Artland Sculpture Park

Museum Monday has been on a bit of a break since the beginning lockdown in Spring, with most cultural institutions closed and all travel plans put on hold. But as things slowly started to open up again, we embarked on a series of socially distanced local day trips, which we now love to share with […] Read more…
