Sticky cinnamon and walnut breakfast buns

Once again, I’m late to the GBBOBloggers2018 party. I only decided on what I was going to make last Friday, and actually made and photographed on Saturday morning before heading to Blog On Toys for the weekend! Bread week is usually one of my nemesis’, and because I didn’t have much time, I just decided to use a recipe from one of my books. (Which I should actually use more often – does anyone else have a mountain of them and never use them?)

Apple & blackberry crumble traybake | Recipe

I’ve been a really bad food blogger this year – I think I’ve only posted one recipe! I have blogged foodie reviews, but I’ve not really had the mojo for creating. I’m hoping now that The Bake Off is back, the mojo will return. I’m also happy to see that Jenny over at Mummy Mishaps has brought back the Bloggers Bake Off linky!

I never got around to joining in biscuit week, as the boys had just gone back to school and Noah was only doing two hours a day. But of course I had to join in with one of my favourite things to bake – cake week! I didn’t really fancy any of the other challenges, so I went with a tray bake. Nice and easy!

Yes – I’ve found the summer holidays hard

Yes I've found the summer holidays hard

Most parents I know seem to look forward to the summer holidays; weeks of fun, plans, and days out with their little ones. Spending quality time, making precious memories. But, I’m not most parents. I’m one of those that dreads the summer holidays.

After working hard on my mental health over the last few months and writing our summer bucket list, I have to admit that for the first time in as long as I can remember, I was actually looking forward to the holidays. Spending quality time with the boys, and making and documenting some new memories. Read more

Four romantic things I’d love to do in Italy

I’ve mentioned previously how The Husband & I would love to travel the world when the boys have grown up and entered the big wide world on their own. One country we are always talking about that we would love to visit is Italy. Mainly because – we had planned a trip to Lake Garda for our honeymoon, but unfortunately that fell through. We’re determined to visit Italy one day, though!

I love discovering the hidden gems in new countries, but I like to do the traditional touristy things too. The main cities I’d love to visit are Rome and Venice; I always think of Venice as the Italian city of love! Maybe we could head there for our next big wedding anniversary… Possibly leaving the laptop open on the Destination 2 website would drop a massive hint… 😉

The Welsh Cheese Company subscription box | Review

The Welsh Cheese Company Clwb Caws

Cheese. That’s all somebody has to say to me, and I’m there. Add subscription box to that, and I’m all heck yeah, give me ALL the cheese! I’ve always been a great cheese lover and if there is ever a cheese board on a menu, that’s what I’m having. So when I was offered the chance to try out the Clwb Caws subscription from The Welsh Cheese Company, I grabbed it with both hands (quite literally, when it arrived!).

A subscription to Clwb Caws is the perfect way to ensure you have a regular supply of the very best Welsh cheese. Every month we hand pick four of our favourite cheeses, package them up and post them out to arrive with you on the second Wednesday of the month. The quartet of cheeses will always be varied and well balanced, and will weigh around 800g in total. Read more
