2012

2012

2012 was a really great year overall.

It was the year I got back into Twitter, and with that came a huge amount of support, help, encouragement and some new, great friends! It was whilst being on Twitter again that I decided to start this Blog and I am glad I did, it has been a place for me to be honest, to vent, to try and support others and to give a perspective of things. My blogging and Twitter-ing will definitely continue into 2013.

Pregnancy Update – 17 Weeks

4 months pregnant with Little Man

Well I haven’t blogged for a month – since I announced that we were expecting another LP!

Recently I have decided that all Mums should bake. And they should bake well – obviously this is a little bit tongue in cheek. This is taking some practice and I think it will take years to perfect! But I think that I have ticked the ‘Mums must make cake’ box, even if the cakes aren’t perfect just yet! One of my favourite cakes is this Banana Cake recipe, as it uses up ‘past their best’ bananas and tastes great too.

After the popularity of my Cheese Scones recipe, I thought I would also share my Healthy Fruit Scone Recipe for a bit of variety. This basic scone recipe gives a lovely sweet option and something else to add to the baby led weaning menu but also something that the whole family can enjoy. I don’t think you can ever have too many scone recipes!
