Randon act of kindness

Today is Random act of kindness day. We all like to think that we are kind and most people are to the ones we love, but how many people have recently done something kind to help a complete stranger without any thought of a reward?

Half Term Shenanigans

As it is half term me and Tilly decided we would go on an adventure. We decided that we would go and meet mum from work as she works in a larger town and we would be able to get a bit of shopping done.

Home made Valentines Day Flowers

Valentines day, a day where traditionally you buy flowers for one you love. As a child from a one parent family, I like to buy flowers for my mum to show her how much she is loved and although she may not have a man to buy her flowers, she has us.

Recipe for cheese and potato pie

Recently I attended the chequers cookery school again. They run a special group for those with mental health issues to help us gain confidence and make new friends. This week we made a delicious cheese and potato pie that I really enjoyed making (and enjoyed eating!) and so I thought I would share the recipe with you all.

Happy Chinese new year.

Today is Chinese new year and we are entering the year of the rooster. We had a Chinese new year themed day at brownies this week and we told all the girls what animal was the year they were born (I was born in the year of the Monkey). Some of the girls questioned why there are animals in the Chinese calendar and why these particular animals are used. I had no idea and so googled it. Turns out it is based on a Chinese folk story called the Great race. Although there are many variations of the story, I thought I would tell you the story.

The mysterious case of the paint in the night.

This week mum had a work conference in London on Tuesday and therefore was unable to take Tilly to school and asked if I could stay over Monday night and take Tilly to school Tuesday morning. Being the amazing daughter I am, I said yes and headed there Monday night after work.
