Our Easter Buys!

If you've been into any high street shops recently you'll see that they've really upped their game when it comes to Easter. More chocolate treats, more food and more decorations!

Prices vary dependent on where you shop but there are great things to be found! Normally I'm all about the homemade and handmade, like the Easter Wreath and Bunting that we made last Easter but this year I have treated us a little and picked up a few things. Probably too many! 

I thought I'd share with you what we've picked up and what we have planned for the long weekend!

First, decorations!! These are what really sucked me in when out shopping and made me go a little Easter crazy!

Gin & Tonic Lime Drizzle Cake

Gin is one of the most popular alcoholic drinks at the moment and as its popularity grows, more and more flavours and serving styles are being created. This has begun to include food and with this in mind I've created this very grown up bake, a Gin and Tonic Lime Drizzle Cake!

Look how yummy it looks!

Four Of The Most Useful Skills A Mum Can Teach Her Kids

Collaborative Post

I waited a long time to become a mother and it's hardwork, but it's an incredible joy and privilege too.

The journey starts when you see a tiny bundle of cells grow into a fully formed little human, and then as they navigate their way through the world and begin to have thoughts, feelings and opinions of their own. It’s a magical and bamboozling miracle that’s truly humbling when you stop to think about it. Of course, it’s also a great responsibility.

Our Favourite Book - The Three Little Superpigs!

I love books and have created a little book worm in the shape of my 3 year old little boy. Our love of books was the inspiration behind the book of the week feature that has run on and off for over a year.

As I change things up a little with my blog I'm now going to be sharing our favourite book on a monthly basis and it will also have an accompanying vlog over on my YouTube channel!  

So, let's gets things started! Our current favourite book is.......The Three Little Superpigs!
