1st week of school…….tears or cheers?

So the end of the week is here and the second week of what seems to be the rest of Ethans life is soon to begin. Monday was quite traumatic with half an hour at home tears and a very terrified little boy. With lots of cuddles and encouragement we managed to calm him down and get him in the car on his first journey to ‘big’ school. Once there he was fine and quite excited as we waited for the school gates to open and once inside, he found the class castle and was quite happy to wave goodbye to us.

Like giving birth, you can read and talk all you like about what it is like and what to do, but it still doesn’t prepare you fully for the emotions involved. I was fine on the Monday but the Sunday before proved a difficult day for me, with tears (that I had to hide) as I felt that I was losing my son that i’d cared for and brought up for the last four and a half years. As the week went on, those emotions have subsided, he has to go, I can’t do anything about that and I’m now excited that he is so keen to learn and please his teacher. All I can do now is still provide the support and values that I have always given and taught him and hope that he will be content and happy at school.

My love and thoughts go out to all those mummies and daddies whose little ones started school last week – be brave x

Wowo’s really is one big ‘wow’ experience!

The Bank holiday saw us packing up all the camping gear and setting off to Sheffield Park to a fantastic campsite called Wowo on Wapsbourne Farm. ‘The farmer’ Paul is just the friendliest guy, and was chuffed it was are second visit there. We were joined by the Browns and had the best time on rope swings, collecting kindling for the campfire which burned every night with marshmallows poked in it which the kids thought was fantastic! A day on the Bluebell Railway and at Pevensey Bay just made the weekend althought the diet starts here as all we seemed to eat was meat and carbs! I can’t recommend the place too much – you might all want to go!

probably the most dangerous chocolate cake in the world!

A Little touch of wicked:


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons cooking oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract and your favourite tipple (optional)

1 large mug

Add dry ingredients to your largest mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using), vanilla extract and a drop or two of your favourite tipple, then mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.

The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!


Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.



(Serves 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).


If you’re feeling very,very naughty cover liberally in Bailey’s Irish Cream or the like. A scoop of ice cream is lovely too.

This is the most dangerous cake recipe in the world because now you are only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
