A Fair Deal From Traidcraft

I am handing over to Mr Hubby today to tell you a little bit about Traidcraft and their work. I still find it hard to understand how there are people in the world who have to survive without clean water. We take so much for granted and I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve […] Read more…

A Day in The Life of a Mummy Blogger

I still find telling people I’m a blogger is a little weird.  Blogging is a much less well know career than a Nurse, for example, and so people don’t always know what it means or what you actually do as a blogger.  With this in mind I thought I would share a day in my life […] Read more…

How To Make Christmas Pudding Ice Cream

We were recently set a challenge by Hawkin’s Bazaar to make over a traditional Christmas recipe and give it a summer twist.  We thought about Christmas Dinner pizza, but decided it probably wouldn’t be *that* nice, so we opted for Christmas Pudding Ice Cream.  I am such a fan of ice cream and can’t believe that […] Read more…

Losing weight with XLS Medical
