Holiday is over and it’s back to reality with a bump! It is cold here in Aberdeen and autumn has well and truly set in while we were away. I am away again for the weekend, jetting off to Manchester to meet some friends and go to the Blog On conference. Piglet is staying at

Coming towards the end of the month the pennies are starting to dwindle a bit, so it’s time to utilise some of the things I have in the freezer! We are away at the weekend for a wedding in Glasgow, so we’re off the hook for one night at least. Piglet has started to get
