Homemade and Made With Love

It has been another rollercoaster of a week. More unsettling, and perhaps unexpected, news this weekend has turned our lives upside down. Again. Today I retreated to the place I always feel calm and in control and started to get ready for Christmas day, in whatever form it takes. It’s only 5 sleeps away after … Continued

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is to take on a different guise this year but that won’t stop us from being creative in the lead up to the 31st of October. After all, we have learned and excelled at becoming creative “pivoters” during these last few months. Although disappointing that we can’t take our wee ones guising this weekend, … Continued

A Warm Welcome Back

I think I speak on behalf of us all when I say that the last six months have been a rollercoaster and emotionally difficult for everyone and still we are not yet out of the woods. At the start of the year I promised that I would keep this space updated, bringing you an insight … Continued

Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween

As pumpkin picking on The Patch comes to an end, so too does living on toasties and takeaways. We are all now craving good food and vitamins, so I headed into the kitchen this morning to make a big pot of our delicious Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Lentil soup. This is one of three recipes … Continued

Signing off for a while...
⁣
Day 5 of the new year and we’re in another lockdown. Not where any of us want to be (especially in the depths of winter in Scotland) and certainly the 5 of us are all feeling topsy turvy again. The prospect of virtual school and missing family, friends and ‘normal’ life dreadfully is hitting us all hard. 
⁣
While these little squares have the ability to provide a whole heap of support and a link to the outside world, my relationship with my phone and social media has got a little bit out of whack over the last wee while. These little people need the best version of me to help them through the next few weeks so I’m going ‘cold turkey’ and stepping away for a wee while!
⁣
So, stay safe and good luck. Above all, be kind to yourselves. The light is most definitely at the end of the tunnel, we just need to keep going. Sending love, Lx
