American Pancake Recipe

My second pancake recipe for Pancake Tuesday or again you may prefer to call it Shrove Tuesday is my one for American Pancakes; the thicker fluffy kind.  Equally as quick and easy to make and equally as tasty.  I suppose it’s just your preference to what kind of pancake you prefer, or maybe it’s the time you eat them.  I like to have my AmericanContinue reading “American Pancake Recipe”

Crepe Recipe

With Tuesday being Pancake Tuesday or you may prefer to call it Shrove Tuesday I thought I’d share with you one of my full-proof recipes for crepes.  Well I lie, this is my mum’s recipe that she passed on to me (could originally be a Delia Smith one).  Mum always made these for us growingContinue reading “Crepe Recipe”

Open your senses

Last weekend I headed back ‘home’ to Bangor for a long overdue catch up with my best friend and to finally get out for our Christmas dinner, not per-say the traditional Christmas dinner of turkey and stuffing; but as a Christmas present to each other a dinner together for Christmas rather than an unneeded present.Continue reading “Open your senses”

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Phil and I had so much fun last night, our wee party for 2. I’m not really one for setting myself goals or doing New Year Resolutions, because I always end up forgetting them or breaking them, I think there has only ever been one year that I actually completed them.Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

So long 2018

I’m going to be honest with you, right now 2018 is a bit of a blur, perhaps I’ve been walking about with blinkers on all year.  I wouldn’t say nothing eventful happened, because it did; instead it is maybe that the year went by so fast.  Yes there have been ups and downs, stress andContinue reading “So long 2018”

Outdoor weekend

I love a weekend I can get out and about, especially when it’s walks through the forest. It was also a great excuse to snap away with my new phone. I upgraded to the Huawei p20 Pro a couple of weeks ago, but this was my first real time to play with the camera. I’mContinue reading “Outdoor weekend”

WEEK 1 – Photography

Last Wednesday was the first night of the photography course my friend Vicki and I have enrolled in. It’s at our local college and one night for 12 weeks, it’s not accredited, but a recreational course, so we are still learning, but without the pressure of assessments or traditional ‘work’ and essay writing to do.Continue reading “WEEK 1 – Photography”
