White Chocolate Bounty Bar Recipe

I saw a really simple recipe for homemade bounty bars on Facebook from Aldi Mum, so decided to give it a go.

I mean, I love chocolate bars but particularly love Bounties. Sadly (for them) the kids aren’t keen on coconut but that means all the more for me and daddy!!

We didn’t have any condensed milk, which was called for in the recipe I had seen, so I decided to make my own twist on the recipe, using ingredients that we did have in the cupboards.

The Fillongley Show 2015

Well it was on our summer to-do list last year, but we never made it. So when I heard the Fillongley show was on this weekend it was a must for us!
Especially as we had no plans – a rare occurence by all accounts!fun
I was riding in the morning, so we didn’t make it over there until after lunch. But I think that was the best time with the kids.


Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

You know that feeling when you see a scrummy-looking chocolate cake and all of a sudden you want some?
We had to make these super moist chocolate fudge cupcakes and we iced them to represent sunflowers.
We found the chocolate fudge cake recipe here on the BBC GoodFood website – aptly named naughty chocolate fudge cake – as it really is!
Half the amount was plenty to make 12 cupcakes.

We Love Weekends 21st August 2015

AAAAGGGHHH! My laptop is broken. So since last weekend I have been confined to using my phone to do all blogging – which is fine but also can be quite time consuming compared to using a computer.

So I am hastily drafting this post in time for Friday’s latest instalment of the We Love Weekends linky!

Last weekend was spent decorating and working! Do you ever get one of those moments when you decide you want to redecorate a room and then just have to do it right that minute? I do! I decided I wanted to redecorate our lounge – or at least repaint the feature wall. So I did. It took me one evening and one day but I got it all done!


A work in progress!!

Sadly it meant that I missed out on a morning out with the family to a woodland adventure park that I have really wanted to go to for ages. But never mind I am sure we will go again as they had a fantastic time!

Just this week I was looking at the fantastic array of duck tape you can buy and here is a great post from There’s Just One Mommy showing us a great way to use it to make a sit-upon.

Last week my children had great fun playing with the toy musical instruments at a friends house, so this post on how to make a toy guitar from Lets Do something Crafty really caught our interest!

And who fancies making this fruit scented playdough from Study at home Mama? Me, I do!!
