Easy Popcorn Recipe : The tastiest popcorn EVER!

I know, it’s a very big claim, but honestly this is the most delicious popcorn, and really easy to make.  Fantastic as a treat whilst watching a movie. I’ve mentioned before about our movie nights on a Friday and this is a firm favourite with everyone.

 

We have an air popping popcorn maker, but not everyone does, so I have adapted the recipe and tested it. It’s just as easy in a pan really. Just make sure you use your biggest! Continue Reading

Little Granddad: Vintage Glass

Little Granddad: Vintage Glass

I wrote in a previous post about my Little Granddad, who was in fact my Great Granddad.  He was very, very special to me, I remember that he bought me a Harmonica (much to my Mum and Dads delight ;)) which I adored.  I played it all the time, in my head I was a fantastic player. In reality it must have been a terrible din!

I once (I think I was around 4) ran away from home…well I ran all the way around the corner to his house anyway. That seems so young, doesn’t it?  I can’t imagine how worried everyone must have been.  I’m not even sure why I did it.

My Mum always describes all of his kitchen cupboards as being full of sugar and condensed milk. I think a reminder of days of rationing and so condensed milk always reminds me of him.

I was still very young, just 5 when he died.  Though I remember that I was upset, I have a vague memory of having a special photograph of him in my bed at night.  What I don’t remember, is that I lost some of my hair. A small patch of it, I suppose through the stress of it all.

Week 17 Photography Project

I have really struggled this week, I completely blame the rain!

I’ve been playing around and made a collage of the best photographs of the week. It’s not great, but I need to put this week behind me and try to start afresh.

Glossybox : April 2012

**PLEASE NOTE THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS**

So, its arrived. I can’t tell you how much I’ve been tapping my fingers for this one. Yes I know there has been a slight delay but it still within the month and I personally think the wait has made the Glossybox delivery even more sweeter.

I wanted to highlight that I am not a beauty blogger who receives their box for free, I pay for it each month, and I am very happy to do so.  I feel it is great value for money.  I just love beauty products and I think receiving the glossy box has only reignited my love them.

So onto the box: Continue Reading
