I’ve never been much of a sun worshipper. I’ve tried sunbathing in the past but I’ve got the palest of pale skin and have never been able to get the right balance of sunscreen to protect me but also allow a tan. Plus I’m an awful fidget and can’t sit still for long enough! My life until this point has therefore been spent whiter than Casper the Friendly Ghost. This year has been different though. Thanks to Pokemon Go I’ve ended up outside a lot more this Summer, navigating around lakes, through woodland and to new places of interest on… View Post

Guys, a terrible thing has happened. It was National Waffle Day yesterday and I missed it. Aargh! I blame it on a case of Great British Bake Off fever.

A few weekends ago I decided to have a go at making a healthy version of an ice cream cornetto. I picked one of the hottest days of the year to give them a go and so my first batch dribbled out of the cones in a big messy puddle and were quite the disaster! With a little perseverance, however, I worked out how to make my filling a thick enough consistency – hurrah! Then I had lots of fun playing around with decorations. In my book you can never have too many sprinkles. You’ll need a high powered blender… View Post

It doesn’t seem that long ago that I sat down to write my first blog birthday post and yet here I am again for my blog turning two! TWO YEARS OLD! My goodness what a year this has been.
