Pecorama

By the time the kids go back to school on Thursday they would have had two weeks off and we have been busy with lots of days out, including a short break to Andrewshayes Holiday Park in Devon. The family run park is situated just… Continue Reading “A Short Break in East Devon”

Blog Camp at River Cottage

When Tots100 announced they were running a Blog Camp close to home at River Cottage I knew I had to apply to go, but not being a “Foodie” blogger I didn’t think there was much chance of being picked. You can imagine how excited I was when that email to say I was on the list came in and I hurriedly marked it on the calendar to make sure hubby got the day off work. On the morning of the… Continue Reading “Blog Camp at River Cottage”
