Why I am always taking photo's of the little moments as well as the big....

We often take photos of those big events in our lives - weddings, christenings, graduations. The ones where we’re all dressed up and picture perfect. 

The moments that will stay with us forever in vivid memories. 

Half term baking with Messy-me.com | Plus toddler friendly basic biscuit recipe

Let's be honest, half terms can be hard enough to plan at the best of times, but February half term is without a doubt the hardest.

With the weather so unpredictable and generally freezing cold, having indoor 'rainy day' activities to keep the kids entertained is essential!

Luckily Messy-Me.com have got us covered for some half term baking - February is 'bake for family fun' month after all.

Messy Me is a family owned business (which are the kind of businesses I think are great to support and get behind) and was started by a Mum of three children, so she really understands what us Mum's of weaning, baking or crafting children really need.

"With my little ones making a mess EVERY DAY, I wanted products which would look good in my kitchen and make my life easier - not add to the workload." Helen Hibbard, founder of Messy Me.

Messy Me now offers a stylish range of fully wipe clean products from weaning accessories to baking kits in the most beautiful designs.

Finn has been lucky enough to try out one of their baking gift sets in a beautiful unisex grey star print.

Recipe: Key Lime Bars

I have made no secret of the fact that I love citrus flavours and inparticular, limes.

I just think they are so versatile & great in everything from main meals to desserts to cocktails.

And the smell & taste instantly makes me think of the sun and holidays. Something I could do with right now. Anyone else SO over the frost & ice right now?

How to: Earn money online answering questions in your spare time! (With prolific)


There are a ton of different options out there to make money from the comfort of your own home.

But honestly, it's a minefield isn't it?

Which ones actually pay money, real cash, into your account and fast?

In among the different options you will need to swerve MLM schemes, scams and sites that lure you in and then don't seem to pay out any time quick or sometimes not at all.

Well, I'm here to tell you about Prolific. 

National Peanut Butter day with Skippy | Chocolate PB banana bread recipe included.

Thursday 24th January
National Peanut Butter day! 

Officially the day for celebrating this humble food spread which is made from grinding up the legume Arachis hypogaea [Don't say I never teach you anything!], and has been enjoyed since the 19th century no less.

Recipe: Cupshakes | Milkshake flavoured cupcakes

So, finally the children are at school after the christmas holidays & I am back to baking.

We did bake a few things over the holidays but with 3 children 'helping' and the cakes pretty much being demolished the second they were decorated, they weren't exactly blog worthy!

Now they are back at school, and the littlest naps, I can do what I love the most.

And seen as they have just gone back, I gave the kids the choice of what they would like me to bake this week as a treat.

The decision was milkshake cupcakes. 

Or cupshakes as I like to call them!

20 things for 2018: The update | Did I achieve everything I set out to last year?

At the very start of last year I blogged 18 things for 2018 and so here I am at the start of 2019 reflecting back on how those things I wanted to achieve went.

I didn't quite manage everything, who does? But I did do the big things, the most important ones to me and so for that I am happy!

I'm hoping to set a similar list of goals to achieve this year too, as it was great to have something to work towards and really kept me motivated >> 19 things for 2019 coming soon!

So only the evaluation of last years goals....
