Interiors: How to light a fire

The temperature has properly dropped here in the UK and we've woken to frost most mornings this week. Time to get warm. A few weeks back, I called a number in the Yellow Pages (okay, I googled it) and found a chimney sweep. The idea of such an old fashioned trade is a bit like catnip to me and sure enough the brilliant chimney sweep who came to our home was a lovely man in his eighties.

Family: Meet the kittens PLUS Fantasy horses with Petplan Equine


Back in July, T (my youngest) drew a fantasy pet – bat, of course – and it was magically transformed into a brilliant cuddly toy thanks to Petplan (read that post here). It's easy to get into the habit of assuming the eldest is too old for such opportunities, but it turns out A wanted to have a go, too.

Recipe: Superfood breakfast bowl


For the past couple of months, I've eaten the very same breakfast every day. It's safe to say that I'm obsessed. There's something so reassuringly easy about the repetition, and something unexpectedly delicious about this particularly recipe that I don't seem to be bored yet.

Birthday Looks: Three matching outfits & party decor ideas!


In less than a fortnight, I turn 40. No one is more disbelieving of this than me. Having been in denial for, ooh, about four years, I have now done a u-turn and have decided I'd actually quite like to celebrate my milestone birthday after all.

Food: My dream Magnum - an Indian Summer treat

my dream magnum - an indian summer treat oyster and pearl blog

I've been loving this Autumn. Temperatures reached the high twenties in mid-September and we enjoyed a proper Indian Summer. Happy days. For a blissful spell, you could find me doing lengths at the lido and working from one of their sunny outdoor tables, as well as enjoying a sweet, frozen treat.
