A Higgidy Day

Over at Higgidy they make feel good family food – bold, vibrant, uplifting dishes to plonk on the table and enjoy together and they challenged me to create my very own Higgidy Occasion.

I had all these plans, a summer lunch in the garden with the family, a picnic on one of our days out, a fun snacky meal to treat the kid after nursery. But this is not what happened, not at all actually. My Higgidy occasion followed what can only be described as an interesting day.

I’ll be up front with you, I don’t know where I’m going with this, but I feel the need to write about how L’s first experience of school was for both of us.

Kitchen Fun with Ulster Weavers

L and I love to get in the kitchen and bake. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s fun. I’m not too bothered by the mess and I think it’s a good thing for him to do. So when Ulster Weavers sent us a few bits to refresh our kitchen and included an apron for him, we had to get straight to it.
