    Brazier Coffee Roasters – Tonedale, Somerset

    One of the brilliant things about blogging is its platform. You can have an idea, create something and put it out there for the world to see. I quite often refer to blog posts for ideas on where to visit, places to eat and so forth. I thought it would be useful (for me just as much) to start documenting the little places we visit at the weekends, whether it be a new restaurant, pub, fast food eatery or a coffee shop (my favourite) and jot down my thoughts on them. I think this will be helpful as now I really have to be careful about what I eat (no…

    Weekend Adventures – Ikea, Quince Honey Farm & Pub Lunches

    I hope you all had a brilliant weekend, but, seriously where has October gone? I can’t believe the BEST month of the year is nearly over – booo! I also can’t believe we have been in our new house for a month, time just dashes by doesn’t it. Saturday Saturday started great, I got a notification on my phone to say I’d won a family pass to Quince Honey Farm in South Molton. I never win anything so I was very excited by this news. We still needed a few bits and bobs for the house and what better place to pick things up (crap you don’t need) – Ikea.…

    What My 4 Year Old Ate Today

    4 year olds are a tricky bunch to please and I find most of my battles with Charlie are over food. I have learnt very well to pick my battles with both children especially at meal times, so here is what Charlie ate today. Breakfast This morning Charlie ate, sourdough toast with flora spread and marmite. I also gave him a small bowl of strawberries along with a drink of milk. Lunch It was a preschool day so I packed him up with a cheese mini wrap, a pot of raspberries and strawberries, a Yeo yoghurt, some BBQ Mini Cheddars, Bear Paws and an apple juice. He ate everything apart…

    What I Eat In A Day

    I’m sharing what I eat in a day, I realise this does not look like a lot of food but some days I’m just not hungry. I am quite strict during the week and then eat (within reason) what I want at the weekend, it is what works for me. I pigged out during Easter I just couldn’t resist all the mini eggs, but eating junk food constantly makes me feel really bloated and unhealthy. Breakfast – Nomadic Yogurt & Oats This has been my favourite go-to breakfast for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it. It is filling, tasty and is great if I am in a…

    A Sunday Well Spent…

    They say a Sunday well spent, brings a week of content and I sure hope that’s true. We had a lovely family Sunday eating out, cooking together, playing with vintage Lego and ending it with a big roast dinner. Sunday morning was spent at a trendy bar for breakfast. We usually go to Wetherspoons but fancied somewhere a little different so we headed to Spoken in Exmouth. The food was so delicious and excellent quality with lots of choice on the menu. The children shared American Pancakes with Nutella whilst Mr K and myself chose the Across The Pond breakfast I wasn’t expecting it to be as huge as it…

    Bad Moms Exeter Adventures At Bills Restaurant

    As the title suggests myself and Mum, That’s Me blogger Lynsey, were Bad Moms at the weekend. Although we didn’t get steaming drunk or act wreckless (saving that for our Christmas night out) we did have a bit of a mummy date in Exeter. Dads were on duty, train tickets were purchased and we were freeeeee! It still feels so odd being out on my own with no handbag full of raisins, cars, crayons, wipes and snotty tissues. I was able to walk freely without nagging for children to hurry up or hold my hand, it was so nice and I had forgotten how lovely it was to have another…

    What My 3 Year Old Eats

    I’ve been having a real issue with Charlie’s eating habits for around a month or so, he has become really fussy. Something which I didn’t think would happen as he has always been a really good eater, I think that Amelie’s fussiness rubs off on him and if she doesn’t like something the whole world knows about it. Here is a typical day’s food¬†– when he isn’t at preschool. Breakfast Today’s breakfast is multigrain hoops with milk and a bowl of raspberries and strawberries. Charlie likes choosing his own fruit and we often chat about the colours and shapes of the fruit. Snack We went to Bicton Park and after…

    Summer Holidays – Our Week

    I can’t believe how quickly the first week of the summer holidays has gone. We have not stopped this week, the weather has been up and down but we have made the most of it. Monday We started our week saying a sad farewell to a very special family member. We didn’t take the children, Amelie went to summer club at school as she had been begging me to book her in. Charlie spent the day with my mum, sister, brother and nephew, I hear they had a great day together. Tuesday I took advantage of the sunshine and got the children dressed and fed early so we could head…

    What Mummy Eats In A Day

    Just a little insight into what I eat in a day, I don’t eat like this every day. I’m under the weather at the moment with a silly head cold so I’m not particularly hungry and when I am, I quite like picky food. Breakfast This granola is by far the best I’ve tasted, it is organic and has yummy yogurt chunks in it with strawberries and blueberries. It tastes amazing with natural yogurt mixed into it. Charlie had the same for breakfast today, he is also a fan of this combo. Lunch Today I had an early lunch at 11am as I was going to meet a friend for…
