We love Schleich toys in our house, they are always a big hit with the kid and so detailed.

The weather has changed, it’s positively Autumnal now. The nights are drawing in. We’re still living in our teeny, tiny conservatory due to the building works and our garden is more important to us than ever for a little space, but even that has areas filled with rubble.

It’s such a simple concept, quick and easy to make, but it’s utterly delicious and a really indulgent treat that is strictly for grown ups.Continue reading A Very Grown Up Rocky Road – Recipe

I have a bit of a weakness for socks, I’m always buying new ones. I love a fluffy sock, long socks, funny socks. So I’m always happy to get socks. Husb is starting a new job and goes through socks at a rate of knots so it was handy to get some for him.
