I love pate, but I tend to only eat it at Christmas time for some reason. The last few years I have made my own, and in my opinion (and those who I have served it to!) it beats what you can buy from your supermarket. It freezes well so can be made in advance, and I tend to make in bulk to serve on numerous occasions over the festive period.
Arty Apple specialise in bespoke personalised gifts and nursery décor. When Amy at Arty Apple approached me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing one of her products, I jumped at the chance!

Oliver has been feeling a bit lost since his big sister started school, so we planned a family day out with him in mind. He loves his toy diggers and trucks, so what better way to spend the day than visit Diggerland to see and play on the real things!

This year we decided to have a little Halloween party for the kids and a few of their friends. It was a good excuse to get dressed up, and gave purpose to some of our Halloween crafts we’ve been doing and of course a good excuse for me to bake some Halloween goodies. Want to know what we got up to?
