Baker Days Valentine Cake Review

I love a good slice of cake, in fact everyone in this house loves cake. I am the sort of person that will use any occasion to eat a tasty cake. Recently we were sent a wonderful valentines letterbox cake from Baker Days. It tasted amazing, I really don’t think there are enough words to explain how well received it was. A letterbox cake is exactly what it says, it is small enough to fit through your letter box, but big enough to share! The letterbox cakes are 5 inches across and 2.5cm depth and is enough for 3-4 portions. Baker Days let me choose a valentine cake of my choice. This was harder than I expected as there is a great selection of Valentines Cakes to choose from. I decided on a cute cake and chose to get it personalised with E’s name, just to be different. When the cake arrived I… View Post

Prestige Flowers For Valentines Day – A Review

With Valentines Day not far away, now is the time to sort out a gift for that special someone. Flowers are one of the main gifts received on Valentines Day. This is of no surprise, after all most women love flowers. I know I do. Nothing beats flowers being delivered to your door to make you feel special. Last week I was lucky enough to be sent a beautiful bouquet from Prestige Flowers to review, and they really are beautiful. The lovely flowers were delivered next day by courier and had to be signed for.  If you order flowers on the website before 9pm they will be delivered next day. This is great, especially if you have forgotten someone’s birthday or have left it last minute to order a valentines gift. The flowers arrived in an extremely large box, possibly at least two foot tall. This did however keep the… View Post

Stick to Stigu 2017 Planner Review

Once upon a time I was an organised person, several years fast forward, a husband and two children later and I am more disorganised than ever before. I have tried various ways of being organised, diaries that I have given up on, calendars that I forget to write on let alone turn the pages, a planner app on my phone – which sort of worked until my phone had problems and I lost everything, writing notes on sticky notes and using various notebooks.  All in the attempt of planning my life, the kids and of course my blog. Recently I have been sent a Stick to Stigu 2017 planner that I have instantly fallen in love with, Stigu is a little character that appears throughout  the planner often giving little tips to help you get through the week. this planner is exactly what I need to keep me and my life more organised. In the Stick to Stigu… View Post

Visiting Father Christmas at Wyevale Garden Centre Sidmouth

I love Christmas and the magic that comes with it, as I was growing up my parents made such an effort with the decorations and Christmas day was always amazing. The decorations are up in the Mum, That’s me household and it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. A couple of weekends ago we had our first visit to see Father Christmas at the Wyevale Garden Centre in Sidmouth ,we didn’t tell E we were going until we got there, she was so excited – this year the level of excitement has gone up a level. As soon as we walked into the Garden centre the Grotto was straight ahead, we had to wait a little while due to the change over in Santa’s Elf. The area leading up to the grotto was a little bit festive looking but not as much as I would have thought it would be. E enjoyed… View Post

I love everything about the Christmas, the decorations, the presents, family time and most importantly I love Christmas food at home and in restaurants. Recently I was invited to the Pizza Express in Exeter to try the Christmas menu, I love pizza and I was very curious to see how you could have a Pizza based Christmas menu.  I took a friend along so we could get in the festive spirit together, munch our way through yummy food and have a good natter. Pizza Express have a great varied menu and their Christmas menu looked very exciting and I was looking forward to trying it For starter i chose Manzo Crocchette which contains pulled beef and chianti crocchette served with rocket and a horseradish and crème fraiche dipping sauce. When it turned up it looked great and it… View Post
