Reviews Comments Off on Meatcure review
Anyone who follows me on social media will know I am partial to a burger or two. I’d go as far as to say it’s my favourite meal.
When Meatcure first opened in Market Harborough we ate there as a family and LOVED it. It was a revelation. Interesting burgers, super hot skinny fries and excellent sides to pick at before the main event arrived. I was hooked. READ MORE
Reviews Comments Off on AEG Steambake oven review
So the lovely people at AEG asked if I would like a new oven. I mean, seriously, I have had some lovely perks as a result of blogging but this one has to be up there at the top.
But we only moved recently and the kitchen I inherited has a range cooker which is pretty new. Plus even if I wanted to replace it, the AEG Steambake oven is a regular size so I’d have a gaping hole in the oven area of my kitchen. So I politely declined. READ MORE
More, Reviews Comments Off on Dear Father Christmas… (or what I want in my stocking)
This is my fantasy stocking. I’ve already done a post on gifts for bakers, and one more general one, but this one is ALL about me. (It could well be an insight into my soul. Worrying).
I have three sons so essentially I want this necklace above in a kind of bragging type way. Three peas to represent each of my little men in the making. Then everytime I find myself sighing at the amount of ugly plastic crap in the house I will carefully and gently feel the peas and imagine living in a house with only wooden toys and crocheted blankets. It’s reassuringly expensive. £110 and you can buy it here.
I’m not very well. I’m aching and coughing and goodness, my limbs hurt. I was up in the night three times taking painkillers and trying not to cry in case I woke the kids up. All I wanted was my Mum to come and make it all better. But that doesn’t happen anymore. I momentarily lost the memo that I’m the Mum and I needed to Mum-up. Anyway. You don’t want to hear about this. READ MORE
We went to Rome at half term. Without the kids.
Now before you go judging me, we did take them all to Legoland for the day before we went AND they got to spend two days with their grandparents, which is frankly a little like visiting Disneyworld from their point of view. So we’re not bad parents, honest. We just wanted to spend some time together doing boring adult things like looking at ancient ruins, paintings and the like.
I have a giveaway (and a review) for you from Thermapen. I’ve actually wanted one of these for ages so jumped at the chance to review one for you. Each Thermapen is worth £60 and I have TWO to giveaway. READ MORE
Reviews Comments Off on A weekend in Madrid – part 3
So here’s the third installment of our weekend in Madrid. On the Sunday we woke up to this. Look, it’s a rainy bank holiday weekend here in the UK at the moment so please excuse me reliving a sunnier time. For the other installments in our travels see here and here. READ MORE
So if you read my first installment on our little mini break to Madrid (gosh that sounds very Bridget Jones doesn’t it?) you’ll know we got to the hotel, dumped out bags and off we set to explore. READ MORE
Reviews Comments Off on A weekend in Madrid – part 1
We went to Madrid. Just me and my husband. No kids. Two nights away. It felt decadent and almost like a honeymoon. We went to Barcelona for our honeymoon, just for three days mind. (No, this was not a deliberately miserly honeymoon, my dad was ill and well, it felt a bit odd to be living it up whilst he lay in hospital).
Do you want to know what we got up to? Here goes… READ MORE
It’s the last installment, I promise. If you missed the previous one, it’s here. So we went back to The Regatta. It was that good. This time we had the crispy squid. READ MORE
