Tesco Fish Cakes!

This summer, Tesco have refreshed their range of pre-packed fresh fish to include everything from prawn cocktails, crispy fishcakes, hot smoked salmon and simply prepared fresh fish fillets. We have a Tesco just round the corner and I regularly buy from the pre-packed and fresh counter because we just adore salmon. We’re not terribly adventurous, occasionally we will opt for mussels or scallops if we’re feeling really daring but really, when salmon is SO good for you as well as tasty then […]

I remember the feeling of breaking up when I was a child and it’s exactly the same now that I look out on a summer six week break with my own children.

He was feeling a bit under the weather this week which probably didn’t help and I really wanted to cheer him up. I took him to the park yesterday afternoon, just […]
