As Old As Time, A Twisted Tale, Book Review

Dairy free/Egg free/Vegan Homemade Custard recipe

This is my second attempt at coming up with a recipe for dairy free custard, first attempt a few days ago and was nice but a little watery tasting, but this second go I tweaked it a little and it is divine and so easy to make! This is just a quick teaser post really…

Taking the other road

I have just finished writing the next 2 pages of my novelĀ “Faith, Hope and Magic” with my new “sliding doors” moment, I had planed to re-write the last page I wrote but instead have tried to translate the “trousers of time” clarity I had the other day with it into the story itself, I feel…

Better late than never to the Homemade stock party

So I am rather late to this party, it’s always intimidated me, the idea of making my own stock from the chicken carcass, I think a certain amount of it was thinking I would muck it up because the boys would distract me and with homeschooling and a business time was a huge obstacle. Then…

Officially not registered for school!

So awesome that today was the cut off date for applications for primary school for our eldest, as it was also the smoothest day for Homeschooling or just my boys in general,ever. Two boys under 5 with very different needs and abilities generally means someone gets upset or bored at some point during the day…
