Easy Peasy Cheesy Pie

Everyone loves some good old traditional comfort food, and I can think of nothing better than a big slab of cheese and onion pie. My grandma used to make the nicest cheese and onion pie I have ever tasted. I don’t know exactly what her recipe was but this is my version. It is so […]

Baffled Blogger… Send Help

​When I decided to start a blog I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but what I found is that I bloody love it! The blogging community is amazing and I’ve (virtually) met some fantastic people.  I only started my blog in September 2016 so I am still a fairly new blogger (can I call myself […]

Anyway, swiftly moving on.. […]

Halloween then and now..

​What was Halloween like for you as a child? For me, it was so different to what it is now.  When I was a child, Halloween was just another day. It wasn’t a celebration at all. There wouldn’t be any parties organised especially for the occasion, and as for a decent costume, you must be […]

Cleaning Monster…

Is it just me, or does anybody else go over the top with the cleaning when you know you have visitors coming? This week we had my daughters two year assessment with the Health Visitor. I spent a couple of days before she came cleaning the house, from top to bottom.  Everything had to be […]
