I briefly mentioned on my Sunday Moment post about our recent trip to the lovely St Mary's Inn in Stannington, near Morpeth. For the past eight months my lovely sister has been working incredibly long hours 4 days a week to take a Wednesday off each week to look after Zoe, which has saved us ...

Last Wednesday was the final Wednesday my sister was having Zoe before she starts her new job properly, and Zoe starts her new childminder. We have been incredibly fortunate that my lovely sister was able to condense her hours to look after Zoe for us one day a week.

Better late than never...
A little late this week, but better late than never eh? I had a really busy weekend in the sunshine, and then a full on day at work, topped off with solo bedtime! Phew, needless to say I am having a ice cool bottle of beer and putting my feet up as I write this. This week we are as always trying ...

I am going to preface this post with the fact that I don't really like Chocolate Cake. I find it is often dry or just a bit sickly. Give me a Victoria Sponge or Lemon Drizzle any day of the week, I will never ever chose chocolate cake from a menu, and I rarely make it.

Basking in the sunshine, weeds and ordinary moments over on the blog today. You wouldn't believe this was just last week after the blizzard we had yesterday!
This is my first foray into the Ordinary Moments linky, I just love the idea that the simple things in life are the sweetest; it's such a lovely concept. Often you have these big expectations of days out or holidays, which cost a fortune but never quite live up to it.

Having a good old rant about girls vs boys clothes on the blog this morning. I'd love to hear your views.
I'm sure I've mentioned on many occasions now that things are a little tight around here, with the extortionate cost of childcare and my new part-time status, we are cutting back on a lot of luxuries. So when I noticed that a few of Zoe's t-shirts were looking a bit worn/short I decided to head ...

This week's meal plan is a little more detailed and includes my breakfast and lunch, hoping that this helps me in trying to be a little bit more healthy... #mealplanningmonday  
I am feeling very summery right now, and heavily craving light, healthy meals. I have really been enjoying making quick baked eggs/frittata using up veggies from the fridge. My current addiction is siracha chilli sauce, which I have been adding to everything! I have also been trying to save ...

Trust me to publish a new blog post on a day when I will have zero phone signal. Must get better at scheduling these things... Anyway in case you missed it, I blogged a new recipe;

Lemon and White Chocolate Shortbread Bars
The baking bug has hit me again and I am finding that I'm enjoying it more and more. I'm feeling inspired and constantly thinking of recipe ideas in my head again, which feels great. I feel like I am finally getting a bit of 'me' back; which sounds so cheesy but its true.

1 & 2. It's been a fairly quiet week around here to be honest, Lots of little moments of loveliness, like an early morning bubble bath with my baby girl, or bedtime stories with Daddy. I am sharing these as a reminder (to me mostly) that these moments are precious and just as good as big days ...

As a child of the 90s I love a good Friends quote, and I always remember Monica saying she wanted to be the Mom that made the best chocolate chip cookies, and spends the episode trying to perfect Phoebe's Grandmother's recipe. I do love a good bit of recipe development, but I also love the idea ...

Well that weekend just disappeared! Because of a couple of heavy nights out I am really in need of another weekend to recover!! It's been so long since I have been out on the town and been able to guilt-free enjoy a couple of glasses *cough* bottles *cough* of wine as Zoe was sleeping at Auntie ...

Running a bit late with the meal plan this week, I cannot believe how quickly that weekend went! I am on the back foot a little and haven't done my food shop yet, and probably won't until Tuesday or Wednesday, which is actually quite a nice feeling as the possibilities are endless!
