Does Size Matter? Let’s Talk Freezers! Thumbnail

This Food Waste Friday, let's talk freezers. As my family grows older (and the kids take on more sporting activities) there is a definite increase in the amount of food that is being consumed. My grocery philosophy has always been to buy just what we need for the next 7 days - and this has [...]

Something’s Gotta Give

Something’s Gotta Give Thumbnail

We can read countless books on productivity and on getting things done, but from time to time something's gotta give. Mothers can feel as though they should be able to conquer the world, to take things on regardless of how little time they actually have available. Even mothers who are committed to a 'family life simply [...]

Food Waste Friday | Introducing Rejuce Thumbnail

As a blogger I'm approached daily by brands and businesses. In fact the majority of my blog e-mail consists of PR & Media companies contacting me asking for collaboration. You may have noticed that there have been a handful of sponsored posts over the last few months. 'Handful' being the point. I only ever give airtime [...]

You gotta love the great British weather. Flip flops one day, Wellington boots the next. I am showing my toes today, but not sure how long for - it's a bit chilly. A day may start of sunny and end in rain, or vice versa. The key to appropriate clothing in Britain is to act like a good [...]

How To Make Watermelon Lemonade

How To make Watermelon Lemonade

Watermelon regularly makes an appearance here on Food Waste Friday. Guess what? We have watermelon to use up once more. I was a little over enthusiastic when cutting the kids watermelon for an after-school snack yesterday. It didn't all get eaten, so into my Nutri-Ninja cup it went. And it's still there! Time for watermelon lemonade me [...]

How Do You Save Bananas?

How do you save a banana?

It's Friday Guys - Food Waste Friday. Today we are going bananas (yes even I cringed at that!). Yesterday my ham-handed hubby managed to accidentally split the skins on two over-ripe bananas while separating the third from the bunch. Now, I'm no stranger to making a banana save: There's Banana and Ginger Loaf with no added [...]

Simple Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe

Simple Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe Thumbnail

We are big fans of cake to celebrate at Chez Wright, and this simple chocolate fudge cake recipe is a favourite. Today marks the end of the (somewhat controversial) Year 6 SATs in the UK. Time for cake. As specially requested by First-Born. But unlike the tradition of 'Back2School' cake - which is shared among [...]

I Say Mum, The Kids’ Say Mom

I Say Mum, The Kids’ Say Mom Thumbnail

It's been a while since I have done a Thursday open house. (Unsure what my open house is? Read this post) Typically as a WAHM, Thursday is the day I take as my day off. (Work at home mom? or mum?) It's also the day I try to spend some time with my own mom. Did [...]

Family Friendly Vegetable Curry Recipe

Family Friendly Vegetable Curry Recipe

This family friendly vegetable curry recipe was inspired by a lunch our local day-nursery used to prepare for the children. At that time (2009/2010) personally I hadn't dared to serve curry to the family table, as my preconceptions were that children so small wouldn't like the taste of the spices. This is why I always encourage [...]
