Mum moments with Hotel Chocolat – review and giveaway #MumMoments

Mum moments with Hotel Chocolat

As a child I remember Mothers Day as being a time to get my Mum some flowers or to make her sometime to keep. I don’t think I ever really grasped how special being a Mum actually is. I’m sure we’re all a little guilty of taking our parents for… Continue reading »

Getting festive with Hotel Chocolat

There’s always great excitement in this household as December approaches.  There’s Monkey’s birthday to look forward to of course, but with two chocoholics in the household the first of December means advent calendar time.  This year we’ll be getting festive with Hotel Chocolat.

The Fat Fox Inn in Watlington

The Fat Fox in Watlington

In my quest to persuade my beloved son that he can eat something other than margherita pizza when we’re out and about, we’re making a point of finding eateries where it isn’t even on the menu! Last Sunday it was bitterly cold, one of those days to curl up in front… Continue reading »

Le Petit Ballon wine subscription service

I can remember my very first experience of good wine.  I knew nothing about wine really, and has been invited to a dinner party with work colleagues.  They were all older than me (I’m going back years ok) and I knew that they knew their stuff.  We’re talking people that… Continue reading »

The White Horse at Duns Tew

The White Horse at Duns Tew

Being a Mum is extremely rewarding but it’s also flipping hard work.  I’ve loved having my son home with me over the summer holidays, but he’s full on from the minute he gets up until the second he falls asleep.  I was totally frazzled by Monday.  I admire all working Mums as… Continue reading »

Introducing children to Sushi with Yutaka

I was hoping to write this wonderful post about Monkey and introducing children to Sushi with Yutaka.  I’m really keen to introduce him to lots of different foods and would love him to enjoy experiencing new things as much as I do.  You can really use anything with the sweet rice… Continue reading »

Lunchtime at The Longwall Beefeater Oxford

Lunchtime at The Longwall Beefeater Oxford

I really haven’t been very organised since Monkey and I returned from Spain.  The thought of a supermarket shop with him never frills me. So with bare cupboards we headed over for lunchtime at The Longwall Beefeater Oxford on Sunday.  No cooking for me meant a little extension to our holiday…. Continue reading »
