We have had a fab month. November is always fun with lots going on, and picking our favourite five was really tough! We had JHogg’s birthday, a weekend away, new sofas and movement milestones for Piglet. We have started the process for having some major work done in the house so there is a lot

Our meal plan this week was prepared while I am hungover and generally feeling a bit tender. I think that may be reflected in my food choices! I am all about the comfort food! Things get a little busy around the weekend so no need to meal plan for JHogg and I, but as usual I have

The Landmark Forrest Adventure Park is well known for being great fun in the summer. But what about the winter months? We went along last weekend to find out! From 31st October to March the manned attractions in the park are closed. Fortunately for us, Piglet is too young for any of them anyway so

What if…. its a funny old question and sometimes a dangerous game to play! I try not to think about it too much, I don’t see the point in considering what could have been. But recently it has felt quite relevant for Piglet and I. In March last year, 4 days before my wedding, I
