Jam tarts by a 3 year-old

Jam tarts by a 3 year-old

After the Jubilee bank holiday we’re all feeling a bit worse for wear… James acquired a bad back (from doing what I do not know!), I’m more tired than ever, and Ashleigh had been going to bed late every single night. So on a whim […]

Beckworth Emporium & Sywell Aviation Museum

It’s the weekend! As per usual we have to come up with some sort of entertaining schedule for the little rebel… so today, we went to Sywell Aviation Museum and Beckworth Emporium, a garden centre not far away. We saw some helicopters hovering around… Beckworth […]

Tomberries (conberries?)

Just having a fridge clear out, throwing the odd wiltering cucumber, limb salad leaves away when I saw this: Yes they are called Tomberries, although I’m not sure if it is a proper name… probably like Munchkins (small pumpkins) that nobody knows what it is […]

Squids, wool and casserole dish

Squids, wool and casserole dish

Last few days have been an edgy few days, with Ashleigh being sick with stomach bug and James and I both feeling icky. Having to see Ashleigh being sick through his nose is always nerve wrecking. Is he ok? Is he going to choke? Especially […]

8 months baby

8 months baby

Ashleigh turned 8 months yesterday 🙂 He can now crawl very quickly (especially when he’s following us around in the house), stand up leaning on the sofa (sometimes he’ll be a daredevil and let go, that seems to be more frightening to me than to […]
