I’m not entirely sure where February went! I know its a shorter month but it literally just flew. I found it a little harder to keep up with this resolution to write down something I was grateful for each day than I did in January, and a few of these were written retrospectively. I really… Continue reading Things I Was Grateful For in February
This is one of my all time favourite recipes and my go to any time we have overripe bananas in the house (oh dear did I forget to eat the bananas, oh well I guess I should make some banana bread..). It’s my wonderful Grandma‘s recipe and since she taught me to bake in ounces,… Continue reading Grandma’s Banana Bread
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to be grateful every day. To find something in every day that made me happy, no matter how small, or how bad the rest of the day was. I have managed to keep with this resolution so far, and have kept a diary of these little things to look… Continue reading Things I Was Grateful For in January

My husband is the most difficult person to buy for ever. I’m not sure he’s actually ever really liked anything I’ve bought for him in the past (apart from a surprise ski holiday for his 30th birthday, that went down pretty well!). We don’t really buy each other big gifts, as we prefer to spend… Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide for Men
My best friend, my oldest friend, my sidekick and partner in crime. My sounding board, my cheerleader, my loyal supporter. Oh and my extended wardrobe. My little sister.
I have a real soft spot for Manchester. It was our closest ‘big city’ growing up and we’d get the train there for shopping and concerts with friends. My sister Zöe has lived in Manchester for a few years, and has just moved into a cute new flat with her gorgeous pug Harriet. Zöe‘s birthday… Continue reading A Weekend in Manchester
Today is National Grandparents’ Day (apparently!) so I thought I’d take this opportunity to celebrate my wonderful grandparents. I only ever had one set of grandparents growing up but I really did hit the jackpot with the ones I got!
