Celebrating Easter with JCB and Britains JCB 3c Mark III

I’ve written a few times over the years about my son and his love of JCB.  From his My First JCB Freddie Fastrac book to toys, puzzles, and spending endless hours watching the real machines at work building our local supermarket and cinema complex, his love is boundless.  I wrote… Continue reading »

Easter treats from Hotel Chocolat – review and giveaway

Easter treats from Hotel Chocolat

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 »
