On a dry day on our trip to Yorkshire we decided to visit Scarborough, somewhere we’d heard so much about. A classic, British seaside resort, we weren’t expecting much more than the beach and arcades. So, seeing Scarborough Castle overlooking the town was a welcome surprise, and we decided to start our day there.
At Easter we had such a lovely week in Yorkshire. The holiday had been postponed twice due to the pandemic but finally we were able to make the trip and we had such a lovely week exploring somewhere new with our friends.

In my younger years I always just used soap and water on my face and made sure that I took makeup off before bed. I had good skin and didn’t really see the point in doing anything more to my face. But, as I’ve got older I’ve realised that your skin does need, and deserve, a little more fuss than simply soap and water.

Giving the kids a good financial education has always been really important to us and now that LP is starting secondary school in September we thought it was time she had access to money without having to always have cash with her. In exploring all the money management options available for children we decided to go with HyperJar.
Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows! I love this project, I’ve been doing it for so many years now and it’s always nice seeing who links up and watching children and families grow throughout the year.
May half term is one of my favourite school holidays. The weather’s usually nice and it brings with it the prospect of the summer holidays just around the corner. But, it can often be hard to know what to do on the sunny days of May half term so I thought I’d put together some ideas and suggestions.
When is May half term in Surrey?
May half term, in the middle of the summer term 2022, in the Surrey school holidays runs from 30 May to 3 June 2022 which is the same as many of the neighbouring county half terms this year. Make sure you check term dates on your school website.
Ah what a lovely month April has been. It’s always a really positive month after the winter and it’s the start of real days out, nicer weather and summer around the corner.
This April started with us on holiday with friends in Yorkshire which was such a lovely break away. It was so good to catch up and we had so much time together. We couldn’t have asked for a better week.

Cherry Bakewell is one of my favourite flavours and I love making loaf cakes – they’re easy to bake and slice really nicely too! So, it felt only right to make a loaf Bakewell cake – and it turned out great!
This Bakewell Cake is completely different to Cherry Bakewell Tarts but still has the same flavours. It doesn’t have a layer of cherry jam or raspberry jam in a shortcrust pastry case, covered in a light almond frangipane bake and topped with flaked almonds.
