Recipe: Peach & Pecan Overnight Oats

Breakfast that you don’t have to make when you’re bleary eyed is always a winner, so overnight oats are the perfect solution providing you remember to prepare them the night before! I know that a couple of years ago overnight oats were the in thing but I didn’t really get into them until my husband was on a health kick last year and would prepare them to take to work with him to stop him scoffing a cooked breakfast at work! Admittedly his were made up in tupperware and didn’t look as photogenic but he loves pecans so I got […]

Recipe: Microwave Berry Muffin in a Minute

  Okay, it’s Wednesday – otherwise known as hump day. I think everyone deserves a treat for getting to middle of the week and what’s better than cake for breakfast? Healthy cake for breakfast! I could eat cake for all meals if it was good for me, but alas most cake isn’t. I spent quite a while perfecting this recipe though as I know there are a few microwave cake recipes out there but they were mostly very sweet and more desserty options. So for my third breakfast creation in Arla’s Choose Goodness challenge I present to you the Microwave […]

Recipe: Banana Berry & Chia Smoothie

Smoothies are something I really love on work days, I have to be out of the house by 6.15am and I walk the 25 minutes to work so something I can take with me for the journey is perfect because it means I can spend 5 minutes longer in bed if I don;t have to sit down at eat breakfast! I stick Chia seeds in a lot of things but always in smoothies, as they are so good for you; helping digestive health, helps your body regulate hydration and also contain 9 essential amino acids amongst other things! So Arla’s […]


Days out: 8 reasons to visit Drusillas Park

Last week we spent an almost perfect day out as a family at Drusillas Park in East Sussex. The only reason it wasn’t perfect was because Arlo was sick in the car and it was a bit too hot for us all, nothing to do with Drusillas! We spent the whole day there and still didn’t quite manage to see everything due to spending a lot of time in the watery areas so the kids could cool off, we thoroughly tired out Arlo who was asleep before we’d even driven out of the car park! So here I’ve put together […]


Recipe: Skyr Yoghurt & Granola Parfait

As we’re told from a young age Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, unfortunately it is the meal I have the least energy to prepare. I’m working with Arla to put together seven easy breakfast recipes to try and revive our mornings with things that are fun and different from the normal cereal or toast that I’ve come to rely on! It’s been so much fun experimenting with all their products and getting the kids involved in helping me with the recipes too! The reason behind this new Choose Goodness campaign from Arla is as the worlds […]

My Kick the BucketList

My Kick the Bucket List

If you knew exactly when you were going to die would it change your view on life? Would you have a bucket list of things to do before you go? Would you tell people when you were going to pass away? Have a party or slip off quietly? Death isn’t something that I tend to think about much; it’s depressing although it is one of life’s only certainties along with taxes, as the saying goes! I must admit that I am glad I have two children so that they can support me, and then each other when I do eventually […]
