The Grove Watford – Taking a baby to a work party for some unknown reason

Ok, so I must start out with the fact that Weasel and Gravel did not come with us this time to Husband’s Christmas Winter Party, in January at The Grove in Watford, and no kids were in fact supposed to be with us. My babyfied, mushy, hormoned brain did not get this memo and I […]

Sausage, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Pie

I must admit, I wanted to make pie because I love eating raw dough. No, I’m not in the family way and Husband is convinced that raw flour is really bad for your tummy, but I couldn’t care less. This is what happens when you go on a diet and throw away all food apart […]

Melissa & Doug Make Your Own Rubber Ducky

I love this duck. Weasel loves this duck. Weasel takes this duck to bed with her after the bath, we can’t pry the damned thing from her hands. You could be as artistic or rude as you want when painting this Melissa and Doug duck, but as Weasel still has limited capabilities as an artist, […]

Running out of options in her eternal game of musical chairs at the large table, Weasel decides to have breakfast at her little table today (which is cheapest at the Wooden Toys Direct website, an awesome site where her kitchen came from). I love Hipstamatic. It makes my […]

Happy Valentine’s Day Cookies – Sort Of

What would be better than baking some seasonally appropriate Valentine’s Day heart shaped biscuits with Weasel both for keeping her busy on a Saturday afternoon (mostly trying to keep her away from Husband who has decided suddenly to work on his laptop all Saturday) and because, in an effort to finally be back to my […]

How to Train Your Mini-Barista – A Step by Step Guide for Lazy Parents to Raise Useful Children

Husband and I have a goal – to have helpful children. Apart from all that stuff about unconditional love and carrying on the gene pool, we want our lives to be easier. Kids are hard work. Nappy after nappy after nappy, it could drive you insane. So when are they going to pay us back […]
