Big smiles all-around!

  1. Bad luck with the marathon, hope you're lucky with another one. x Thanks for hosting the link-up Claire. x Jacqui

    1. Thanks for stopping by lovely. Now onto plan B. Not got it yet but watch this space ;)

  2. Happy Friday, Claire, and thank you so much for hosting! I'm looking forward to sitting down with a cuppa and catching up with your posts. I've shared my most popular muffin recipe ever on the blog here today - Easy, Healthier Banana and Chia Seed Muffins. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Happy Friday April, thanks for linking up :)

  3. So sorry about the marathon! Can you join a charity team that gets entries?

    1. Thanks Tamar, I can but I just can not raise that kind of money. Shame really as I would now run for coeliac disease!! A charity close to my heart.

  4. Hi Claire, I'm going to go out in a minute with my biggest smile on, it's not every day it's World Smile Day!... I'd never have thought to use popcorn as a cake topper, what a fun idea, sweet or salty would work well, I imagine. And as for your Marathon entry. Unlucky! We tried several years running with no luck. The Athens Classic Marathon is good because it's the birthplace of the Marathon, but I imagine London is so much fun! The trouble with doing it for a charity is you have to 'promise' to raise a certain amount of money.... Better luck next year and enjoy your 'lazy' winter!

    Thank you for hosting.


    1. Thanks for stopping by Debbie. I am so pleased you are going out with a big smile :) So many people do not smile back or speak when you say morning :(

      I have thought of doing a marathon for charity but the need to raise so much money and truth is I do not have a big circle of friends or work colleagues, so I could not raise the amounts they need.

  5. This is a great post with so many fun ideas! Thanks so much! I always try the recipes you show most recently the pumpkin chili in little pumpkins and it was so good! Happy Friday!

    1. Aww, that is great to hear Cheryl, thank you so much for trying my recipes that I post here.

  6. So many great post picks this week! Love the Halloween treats featured. Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. That is a bummer about the marathon... but maybe not it is a big commitment! Thanks for hosting the link up!

    1. Thanks lovely. I get a stress free Winter again now :) I would like to try one more time for a better time. I have ran it twice for fun and would really like to train up now and do a pb before I get to old.


Please leave me a comment I love to read what you think :)
