Alice in Wonderland Queen of Hearts

Hey hey! Hope everybody is having a fantastic Sunday! It’s Mothering Sunday here in the UK and so if you’re from countries celebrating this today, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! Yesterday was a busy day for us. Emma had a competition, an early one too, where besides being scored on gymnastics, the kids can earn a special ribbon for their numbers. While a few kids do make their own numbers, many of them have help from the parents. Or a lot of help. In the past Emma’s participated in the creating of her number but this year, all Emma came up with

A Stroll Through Notting Hill

What a week! Busy and relaxing at the same time. The girls were out of school this last week. It’s half term and all of the English school children are out on school holiday. Usually we travel somewhere far for the whole week but this week, due to hubby’s work schedule, we went for a weekend getaway instead to London.

I am not going to go into the pros and cons of owning a timeshare, or whether you should get one or not. This can be a whole other long post.¬†What I do what to share is this: It was fantastic to able to stay in one to two bedroom apartments with

Quick Non-Spicy Chicken, Spinach and Chickpeas Curry

Hi again! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We LOVE Meal Planning! For the third year our family or I am to be exact, is still going strong with the meal plan. Meal planning has not only saved us money but it has also helped us from wasting too much raw material. I have also quit our weekly veg delivery service. I tried really hard to work my recipes around the box content (that I’ve customised) but it was still limiting and I ended up giving away or throwing a bit of the content away. Right now we’re
