In Peru, Valentine’s Day is also a day to celebrate the other important people in your lives; your friends!
I love a good TV mystery, especially when there’s a police investigation involved. But, I also love being transported to a new location with each one. A new town, city or country makes the perfect backdrop for each storyline. Continue reading
Yes! Another year of travel is upon us and I can’t wait to get planning, Brexit be damned.
I will not let the unknown of ‘transport contracts within Europe’ ruin it for me. I shall make my travel master plan anyway and hope for the best!
I always find travel planning such an exciting time, but I always find myself lost with the amount of places I want to visit. I know that I can’t visit everywhere, so cutting it down to only a few places is always REALLY hard! Continue reading
Here we are at the end of another year.
Part of me feels like January was about two seconds ago and the other part of me has completely forgotten what happened at the beginning of 2018. Continue reading
Merry Christmas Eve!!
Or, actually, Merry Christmas Day to some of you already! Continue reading
You need to make these biscuits.
They are melt in the mouth delicious (literally). Continue reading
Roast potatoes are life.
They’re the best food in the whole wide world and I cannot even think about having Christmas (or any Sunday lunch or roast dinner) without them. I normally like to allow myself about 10 to eat (just me) so I would usually make a lot! I have to have these babies year round, whatever the weather, whatever the season. I genuinely love them that much. Continue reading
If you’re not sure that you want to go out and buy gifts for everyone this year, why not make them instead?
Something homemade is perfect to give to a host of a party, have your children make for friends or their teacher, or even to give to everyone in your family on the big day. And after all, who doesn’t love a gift they can eat?
I feel like cheese is the most wonderful accompaniment to Christmas.
And when it’s all melty and paired with something sweet or fruity, it’s even better. Think cheddar with chutney or manchego with quince. Continue reading
Is there anything better than afternoon tea?
Unlimited sandwiches, sweet treats and cups of tea is a joyful experience in itself, but having it with a Christmas theme goes another step further. Continue reading
When it comes to Christmas, cranberries are always at the top of my shopping list.
I love fresh ones to make cranberry sauce and dried ones to bake with and, honestly, what better thing to make with them than cookies. Continue reading
Welcome to my fifth and final gift guide and I think I might have saved the best until last!
I’ve already shared my gift guides for people who love hosting parties, for those looking to make some eco-friendly changes in their lives, for those who love to cook or experiment in the kitchen and for those who love to travel. So if you haven’t seen those, and think they might be perfect for someone you know, then click on the links to take a look!
As I said in my last guide, for me, Christmas is not about the gifts. However, sometimes you do want to get somebody a special something, or perhaps you need to (like for Secret Santa or a December birthday), so I thought I would put together some little lists for inspiration. I find other people’s lists and recommendations so useful and even if I don’t purchase anything from them, they often give me an idea for something I hadn’t thought of before. Continue reading
