Meatballs and Magic

For a while now, we’ve developed a bit of a weekend family food ritual. Don’t you just love family rituals? I do! So I wanted to share ours with you. The ritual involves two of our favourite things – meatballs, and magic! One of our staple dishes and a firm family favourite from youngest to […] Read more…

Gothenburg With Kids – Our Top Tips!

A while ago, we considered moving to Scandinavia. We looked at different locations, including Gothenburg. In the end, our plans came to nothing – but the desire to visit Gothenburg remained. I’d never visited any major cities in Sweden, and for some reason Gothenburg was always a bigger draw for me than Stockholm. So when […] Read more…

Maibowle – or for the Love of Woodruff

I can’t believe we’ve almost reached the end of May! Before the month runs out, I wanted to share a much loved German beverage with you related to May: the ‘Maibowle’, a punch that uses aromatised wine as its base. One of the key ingredients is ‘Waldmeister’, a sweet woodland herb that goes by the English […] Read more…

A Trip to Brussels

I’ve just come back from a 4 day trip to Brussels! My main reason for visiting, was to take part in the Museum Marathon on International Museum Day last Wednesday (18th May): 1 day, 17 museums, 20km and over 25,000 steps! But I also had some additional time to go sightseeing and see a bit […] Read more…

Cranberry & Coconut Muesli with Cocoa Nibs

I have a terrible habit of hoarding ingredients I find in shops, that look interesting and maybe I’ll make something with them one day. Of collecting recipes I want to try out and then I don’t. The upside of that is, when we ran out of muesli this morning, we had everything in our store […] Read more…

Kids Books exhibition at Berlin’s Nordic Embassy

I absolutely adore Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren. She is one of my favourite children’s books authors of all time, and when I was growing up I literally had *all* her books that had ever been translated in to German. While some of her books seem more popular and widely translated in Germany, others – like […] Read more…

A Spring Party

Just wanted to share some pics with you from the Spring party we attended at the Monkind x Greta’s Schwester StudioStore yesterday. Home made lemonade, flower wreaths, giant bubbles and pavement chalk. What a wonderfully bliss afternoon. Thank you so much! Read more…

Father’s Day Treats

It was Vatertag (Father’s Day) today in Germany, which always falls on a public holiday. It’s also known as ‘Männertag’ (men’s day), and mostly celebrated by men touring around with wagons filled with crates of beer, getting hideously drunk. Very different to the UK, where the shops are flooded with ‘best dad in the world’ products […] Read more…

Snapshots #41

April in snapshots, according to my iPhone (mostly)… Ma 3 Boys! Cherry blossoms are out. Whether you’re 5 or 35, ice cream makes everything better when you’re having a bad day. Sunday breakfast. First day of Kindergarten! Discovered a new playground. So proud of his new bicycle tassels. He chose pink. Of course. It’s getting warm […] Read more…

Rain Cloud Mobile

Ever since I discovered they sell bags of felt balls, sorted by colour, at our local crafts store, I knew I had to do something with them! I had no idea what at the time, but after hovering over them on several craft store trips, I finally purchased several bags of felt balls in different […] Read more…

Style Notes: The Budding Photographer

After a week of being cooped up indoors with a hefty bout of tonsillitis, Mr Fox is finally feeling a little better! So we headed out to the back yard to stretch our legs – and to test out his new camera, which arrived in the post today. Of course, mummy couldn’t resist having a little photo […] Read more…
