Spoooktacular Ideas for Halloween

Spoooktacular Ideas for Halloween

Well, trick or treating is pretty much out of the question as we know it this year so it's time to get creative on what you CAN do with your little ones this Halloween.         We started early this year and have been pumpkin picking already and shared our favourite cake ideas with you guys too but it turns out with a little imagination and a lot of creative thinking Halloween is still happening.                             Pumpkin picking this year for us was simpler and more...

No Trick or Treating This Year?  No Problem!

No Trick or Treating This Year? No Problem!

Spider Monster Cupcakes by Dom at Belleau Kitchen         Anyone who knows me will know that I am not a fancy cake-baking or cake decorating kind of guy.  Whilst I'm happy to bung a few ingredients into a bowl and whizz it into a cake, that's about as far as I'll go.  I just don't have the will-power, stamina, steady hand or quite frankly the patience to produce those amazingly intricate designs you see on social media. To keep it simple and 'user-friendly' (read - good for any lazy, shaky-handed fool) I'm using decorating items readily available at your local corner...

Preggo in Lockdown - What it was like for me

Someone asked me the other day if I felt bitter towards the virus and what it meant for my pregnancy. What did covid mean to me whilst being pregnant for the first time? And I’ve never really thought about it until now... so here goes... Pearly-May, my first born, will be known as a “lock-down” baby, and I don’t know how I feel about that.

5 Eco Tips for Busy Mums from Charlotte the founder of the Silicone Straw Company

I live with my family in a picture-postcard village in the Yorkshire Dales and feel so lucky to live somewhere that other people come on holiday. Along with the holidaymakers we love to spend sunny days down by the river with our children – picnicking, paddling and BBQing on long lazy days. It’s beautiful, but sometimes the aftermath isn’t. Plastic bottles, coffee cups, sandwich wrappers and plastic straws wash downstream, a reminder of the everyday single-use plastics that we use and discard on a daily basis. Seeing the impact these have on our beautiful area got me thinking – how...
