Lockdown v2.0

Here we are again… A country-wide lock down enforced across England until the 2nd December. Although, lets be honest, that feels like a slightly plucked-out-of-the-air date at the moment. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it right now; a little overwhelmed if I’m honest: I’m hoping the following paragraphs will give me a…

Mortality

*Trigger Warning* I’ve never felt the need to write one of these before but I can see why this might be a difficult blog post for some to read. Unsurprisingly, given the title, this contains discussions about death. Well… That was not the lunchtime I’d expected… Piglet has been really enjoying two of the great…

The Hike

A gentle stroll in the park. Well, actually a pretty long stroll for a 4-year old who did remarkably well – all things considered. We planted the idea a few weeks ago. I can’t remember what got us talking about it but I mentioned how much I loved walking in hills and mountains. I guess…

Veg, glorious veg

We’re a few weeks into our weekly vegetable delivery boxes from Riverford now and I’m loving them. We’ve increased our order every week and I don’t think we’ve let a single item go to waste yet. Furthermore; we’re definitely spending less at our weekly supermarket shop. It hasn’t been long enough to work out whether…

Veg Box

I can’t really believe we’ve never done this before, considering the amount we cook from scratch and the reliance on fresh fruit and vegetables for our various diet requirements. However, the lockdown conditions have forced us to reconsider our food delivery options and when a delivery slot became available through a well reviewed local company…

Hever Castle

A grand day out. What a lovely Sunday with the family. We’ve been getting a bit frustrated the last few weekends. Storm Ciara, Storm Dennis and another weekend of wind, rain and generally miserable weather have seen us truly test our list of ‘101 things to do on a rainy day’. Ironically we’ve set ourselves…

Organix

Shock horror! An Allergen Dad blog post about kid’s food – specifically those without certain allergens! It’s almost as if I’ve remembered what this blog was originally intended to do… We’ve been buying Organix products for years now. They’re pretty common place in most supermarkets – increasingly taking up a significant part of the colourful…

New Year

Happy New Year to you all! It’s here – the 2020s! It seems like only yesterday we entered this millennium. I remember that very fondly; drinking Champagne (possibly for the first time) on a hill overlooking the fireworks in Central London. This New Year’s was a little bit, um, different… At home, trying to learn…

Vegan Explosion

No, this isn’t the joke about an explosion in a milk-free cheese factory (“de brie” everywhere)… 2020 looks like it’s set to be the year of the vegan. Coffee shops and restaurants seem to be stumbling over themselves to roll out vegan menus for Spring. KFC have launched a vegan mycoprotein ‘chicken’ burger; Gregg’s have…
