Off to the NEC

We are off to the NEC today. Got up really early this morning to make packed lunch. Ham wraps, tomato humous, rock cakes, all home made yesterday as i spent the morning baking. Should take us about 49 mins to get there. We have a list of items to buy and a wish list to…

Welcome to the new site ….

Hi everyone Thank you for joining me on the new website. It’s gonna be the same, with maybe more content, once I get in the habit again of writing the blog. I hope you enjoy the site and I look forward to hearing your comments and getting your feedback. Sharon

Last Week at Home

Well, its finally here, our last week at home before going back to work for the season. Storm Doris has passed and we were lucky that we were able to stay indoors and not venture out. Apart from putting out the dustbins which subsequently flew down the road spilling all the contents everywhere. The whole road…

Flying without Wings..

Hello everyone, we have had a very busy couple of weeks. Things are ramping up again now, as it is nearly time to pack up the house and go down to St David’s for the season and work. When we went to Brighton, while Mike was working I took the opportunity to visit friends and family…

Well, our winter rest is coming to an end again, we start work next month but before that we have got spring training and other various training and commitments, so I am sitting in the sewing room finishing the last of the projects I set myself. When I finish today, I will put the embroidery…

Time to Jazz Up Vera

We’ve been thinking for some time that Vera needs a makeover. We have had her since April 2016 and although we loved the interior when we first bought her, we have noticed that she is a little tired and would benefit from a little remodelling. I have in my mind colour combinations which is totally…

Children’s Christmas Service

Gingerbread, Operation and UFO’s

We had a great…

Update on James Martin’s Christmas Cheesecake

Just an update on the Cheesecake post from the other day. This recipe is soooooo easy it’s crazy it’s this good. I will confess that I couldn’t find Asda Macarons (or Macaroons). They are online but none of the shops seem to stock them. So I purchased the ingredients to make them, then ultimately found frozen…

Best Laid Plans of Mice & Men…

Tuesday 13th, should have known that things wouldn’t go according to plan. However, a few weeks ago, I noticed that The 2016 Coca Cola Christmas Truck Tour was coming to Leicester on Tuesday 13th December. Great I thought, we’ll collect the boys after school (at 3pm) and go and see it then perhaps treat them to something…
