Cooking Through the Decades..

A little while back Rennie Heartburn kindly asked me to take part in a fun recipe challenge, Cooking Through the Decades.

The idea of the post is to recreate one of my favourite and iconic recipes of a from a decade of my choice.

Two of my all time favourite recipes sprang mind; Prawn Cocktail and The Knickerbocker Glory.

Not in the same dish though, hehe. Both still all time favourite recipes of mine which I discovered in the 80's.

Knowing me and my children well, we would both pick out the sweet recipe first every time. So I pick a special back to school treat for them!

#makesmeME : Creative Mondays Blog Hop..

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had a lovely weekend?

Earlier this week Nectar asked me if I would like to take park in a fun challenge.

The #makesmeME Blogger Challenge. How fun!

About the challenge:
  • Spend 10 minutes collecting 10 items from around your home that best reflect your individuality and what #makesmeME. 
  • This could be anything, for example if you like running one of the items could be your favourite trainers. If what makes you you, is your unusual dress sense one of your items could be a favourite item of clothing. Alternatively if you love animals perhaps one of your items could be your pet.
Here goes:

1.) Family : family is the most important thing in my life. I cannot gather them all up for a photo now as my Husband is at work, eldest 2 sons at Uni etc. So I was going to share a picture of a yummy mummy teddy I got for Mothers day, a few years ago.  Then Mollie stepped in to be the family mascot.

PB's All Around...

Yesterday my youngest two children both ran Parkrun and both got PB's.

 My son knocked half a minute of his and daughter a whole minute!

They are both doing great with their running. I need to up my game now. My son is already around 8 minutes quicker than me over this distance but my daughter is just behind me. Only a few more weeks and I will be the slowest in our family...


Gifted items will be marked "c/o"
Sponsored posts or if a brands pays to be featured in a post will be marked as "in collaboration with:...."
All thoughts will be my own other than if I accept a guest post which will be marked guest post.
