April Bakes

I have finally found the time and more importantly wanted to get back into the kitchen. It took me longer than expected as most my baking was done in the last weekend of April but it all counts! Scones My sister was feeling ill at the beginning of the month and found out late on…

White Chocolate and Raspberry Cake

Oh hello! Yes it is I, back to share another recipe with you which I made for the first time this month.
I can’t believe I have never made scones before, they are so easy! So thought it was the perfect time to share the recipe with you also because its been a while since I have done that.

Books I read in April

Oh hey May how are you? I personally think this year should slow down a bit, we are almost 6 months through the year and it’s cold and wet and can it just be summer now? That week spell really wasn’t enough. Anyhow, I have read 3 books in April, all of which were 4…

April #12MonthBOC

April was always going to be a busy month for me being my birthday month and all. So I am glad I had enough time to make my April challenge for @FueltheBlog #12MonthBOC as well they looked yummy on the original post. I only just managed it too as I only had the time to make…

#NationalGardeningWeek

Ok so saw this come up on twitter and thought it was the perfect excuse for a random blog post and to tell you about my garden and how we have worked to get it looking as it does now, which btw is not finished. It’s just come a hell of a long way since…

Faking Friends – Jane Fallon

This was one of the books I picked up whilst I was in Tesco’s a while back. I bought Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine for a friend (read my original review here) and thought I would also pick this one up as well as it was on offer and I had seen a lot about it…

Juggling priorities because of the UK sun…

Ok so I’m going to start this off with a sorry. I was super busy last week and although that isn’t an excuse it meant that I was unable to post as much as I had planned to, ok ok I only posted once and that was on Sunday… The thing is, the lovely residents…

The Chalk Man – C.D.Tudor

I keep hearing about this book from various people. It’s recently gained a lot of hype in the Bookish community and whilst yes I’ve heard great reviews, I’ve also heard bad ones or shall I say just not so good ones. This is why it’s been on my radar for a while. Then I spottedAli…

I Found You – Lisa Jewell

Let’s find out more about my latest read and my first ever Lisa Jewell book! Synopsis ‘How long have you been sitting out here?’ ‘I got here yesterday.’ ‘Where did you come from?’ ‘I have no idea.’ East Yorkshire: Single mum Alice Lake finds a man on the beach outside her house. He has no…

Meeting Cally Taylor

Today was a very surreal day. I woke up (early) and started my journey from Essex (luckily not from Norfolk-not that it would have mattered-big fan here!) to Bristol. I like to leave early, which is lucky because there were delays on the Bakerloo line which meant I was only just able to collect my…

March Bakes

Ok so I honestly don’t know what has happened to me this month. I baked one thing. ONE THING. Yes it was giant but still, thats only one cake. I keep saying I want to bake more yet I don’t. Think I need to start a challenge again or something to get me back into…
