SUMMERY RECIPES AND 10% OFF - JUNE 2020

Crikey it's hot! While the temperatures have been soaring this week we have managed to resist the temptation to head to the seaside, and instead have been doing lots of cooking – in reality Ben has done most of it - he has been a complete star! We thought we would share a couple of Summery recipes with you that you might enjoy. WATERMELON TOMATO RED ONION AND FETA SALAD - serves 6 as a side 1 watermelon (a smallish one will be plenty), ½ a red onion, handful of fresh mint, 1 punnet ripe cherry tomatoes, crumbled feta (approx. 100g) For the dressing  - 2 tbsp...

FATHERS DAY IS COMING, AND WE'VE GOT 10% OFF! - JUNE 2020

It's so easy in these strange times to even forget what day of the week it is. We worked out last night that it has been twelve weeks and one day since the children arrived home - it has been such a treat having them here with us, but I know it's not great for them in their twenties, and they are understandably craving their own space. Let's be honest, wouldn't everyone love a change of scene! Right now, although I am sitting writing this, I am so excited as everyone has gone to visit Granny, and I have got an evening on my own. It is...

BUY DELICIOUS OLIVE OIL AND BALSAMIC AND DONATE TO CHARITY AT THE SAME TIME - MAY 2020

Another Thursday, and at 8pm this evening we will be on our doorsteps clapping for our amazing NHS and carers who are so deserving. Through this time the rainbow has become so iconic so I thought I would share a photo of this gorgeous painted matchbox which is one of the ones my lovely mummy has made and sent to each member of our family to let us know she is thinking of us even though we are not able to be together. She has always been amazingly creative, and whilst in lockdown on her own one of the things that has occupied a lot of her time is painting....

KEEP ON KEEPING SAFE AND THE "2.6 CHALLENGE" - APRIL 2020

A month has passed since my last newsletter and I so hope that you are all staying safe and well. Such strange times but amidst the uncertainty and the tragedies there are things to be grateful for, not least this amazing weather which Bert is certainly enjoying! One of the big positives is the many generous acts, big and small, that are happening across the country - communities rallying to support each other, all the people who have volunteered to help in whatever way they can, and the incredible amount of money that has been raised in so many different ways for our wonderful NHS -...

STRANGE TIMES ..... BUT THE SUN IS SHINING! - MARCH 2020

STRANGE TIMES ..... BUT THE SUN IS SHINING! -  MARCH 2020

How lucky it is that, despite the strange times we are living through at the moment, Spring is springing, the sun is shining and the skies are blue. It will come as no surprise that the highlight of my day is my dog walk, and there is no question that Bert and Billie are loving the fact that they are never home alone! I am so lucky to have them, and my immediate family with me – I am so thinking of those of you whose situations are different. With all of us confined to our homes at the moment one thing...
