Valentine’s Strawberry Sponge

Valentine’s Strawberry Sponge

Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you had a great week and enjoyed Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day. Our pancakes were a great success this year and although we didn’t plan anything for Valentine’s Day, when we got home we were surprised with a bag of treats from Matt’s mum. She’d bought us chocolate hearts, a special Valentine’s meal from M&S, heart-shaped chocolate desserts and a bottle of bubbly! She is so sweet and thoughtful. I was also spoiled with my favourite chocolates, a heart-shaped cookie and a ticket to a production of Oliver at the school Matt works at, while he got a card and […]

Valentine’s Day Cupcake Recipe

Yesterday I tried it out for the first time by baking some Valentine’s Day cupcakes and this was the result. The icing came out a […]

Show me the Love Blogfest!

As you must already know, today is that special day made for lovers to spoil each other- Valentine’s Day!

All I have to do is answer some questions about my love life, so here goes! 1) What is the most romantic thing that anyone has ever done for you?The moment that […]

Significant Other Blogfest!

Significant Other Blogfest!

 Today Talli Roland and DL over at Cruising Altitude are hosting a Significant Other Blogfest. Basically the idea is for us to relinquish control of our blogs for one day, handing over the reigns to our partners, who are supposed to tell you what it’s like to live with a writer. I didn’t know about this blogfest until getting back from work this evening, so my poor partner Matt got lumbered with this task at the last minute, with absoloutely no warning. He couldn’t be persuaded to write the whole post himself, but he kindly allowed me to interview him. […]
