How Does Your Garden Grow

It’s officially Autumn, which brings to mind crisp leaves of reds and gold, bare branches and much greenery.

Unless of course you’re a plant in my garden. It’s only over the past few years that I’ve actually taken much notice of our garden, but still….I’m amazed by the amount of colour we still have. Even the bees are hanging around longer it seems.

I’m chuffed to bits that I’ve successfully grown another sunflower!


There have been pops of colour popping up all over the garden.

The poppies are still going strong, which means more seed harvesting!


I shall miss the happy pops of colour once Autumn kicks in properly, time to start thinking of Spring bulbs me thinks!

“Because Mama Said So”, Things I Say Now I’m a Parent

I remember as a child listening to my parents and more often than not wondering what the hell they were on about.

I would inevitably do something and be caught out which would result in some choice words from ma and pa, none of which ever really made sense, but at the time scared me enough to if not behave, at least work harder on not getting caught.

Now that I’m a mama I’ve found myself and listened to hubster muttering the same ol’ words at our children. I still have no clue what we’re really on about, but I feel like I’m carrying on some unwritten folklore of parenting wisdom by imparting these words up on my little darlings.

A Different Perspective

Some times you just need to change your perspective.

A different view of the pier, but still just as impressive, love how delicate the “legs” of the pier seem.

Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Icing

I don’t blog recipes often, but when I do they are deliciously calorific!

This time of year is all about the comfort food; rainy cold days should end with homemade soups, chunky casseroles and cinnamon based treats.

These are a twist on one of my favourite treats ever, the humble cinnamon roll.


A Beachy Sunrise

Sunrise, the most magical time of the day.

Except for the kids bedtime!
