Peritos – What To Do With Leftover Peri Peri Chicken!

Peritos – What To Do With Leftover Peri Peri Chicken! A few weeks ago I wrote my recipe for my one pot Peri Peri chicken, a real favourite in this house which I serve with potato wedges, coleslaw and corn on the cobs. We always have left over chicken which I make use of the leftovers from, usually with sandwiches the next day and a soup. The sandwiches are great in packed lunches and the soup, which I make using […]

Posted in Uncategorized

She Said Yes! When we decided to get married we had already been together for a decade and hadn’t really been thinking much about marriage let alone engagement rings, just happy as we were living in sin and loving it. However, when we decided to start a family it became important to me that we were married. I’m not particularly traditional so I’ve no idea why but it just did, and luckily, for Jonny, we both felt the same. It […]

Wonder Cabaret – Norfolk!

Wonder Cabaret – Norfolk! Pre pandemic and lockdown number one was the last time, before we went to Wonder Cabaret, that Jonny and I had been out together in the evening. Since then we’ve had another baby (which has made date night a tiny bit trickier) and we’ve been in and out of lockdowns with theatre and live performances being one of the most greatly affected of all the arts. It’s wonderful then to be able to get out and […]

You’re Going To Be A Dad – By Daddilife Books – A Review!

You’re Going To Be A Dad – By Daddilife Books – A Review! When I was pregnant with my first baby Florence, I remember pouring through Pregnancy magazines and manuals all the way through, devouring the information about the step-by-step stages of my pregnancy and relishing all the details.

Mother’s Ruin?!

Posted in Uncategorized

Mother’s Ruin?! I went out Saturday night to celebrate a friend’s 40th. I wrote in my EDP column about my fun evening where I drank a little too much, then very tongue in cheek style poked fun at myself having to parent through a hangover the next day. My children were safely being looked after and my husband remained entirely sober. In my world there’s no harm done here but wow… Read the comments section on the paper then come […]
