Half-term fun ...

A very enjoyable half term break spent at Center Parcs, but really glad to be back eating a healthier homemade diet.  If you can't go 'off piste' on holiday when can you?  Pumpkins were carved, bikes and ponies were ridden and for the more adventurous amongst us, lots of fun in the pool.  The screams from the waterrides were somewhat reminiscent of childbirth.  

Hope you all had a wonderful break.

Now it's back to work and straight on towards lots of fun at Christmas.

A reminder to myself ...

... during moments of weakness!

Patchwork pie ...

Sometimes this is how we roll.  Perfection takes a little longer.

The temperature dial for my oven also fell off.

I am sure the pie will taste good whatever the disasters that befall it.

Have a lovely weekend xxx

Everyone's a restaurant critic ...

In my endeavour to eat an increased vegetarian diet, no one told me I would come up against teen live bloggers who share my culinary attempts across the interweb!  

The husband isn't much better with comments like 'don't worry we've got courgette flowers & tomato frittatas coming next'.

I think I may be losing this battle.
