I do like a nice advent calendar. Of course , long gone are the days of  fiddling and scratching to lift the corner of a ‘door’ only to find a picture of a Christmas tree which looked like it had been in an explosion and a fizzled bit of tinsel had landed on top!

The only ‘fizz’ you’ll find in these ones are purely for a bit of calm while having a soak in the bath. Ahh, sounds lovely…how I dream of a good soak without the calling/yelling of a little voice ‘MOM, I NEED A WEE! NOW! THERE’S ALSO SOMEONE AT THE DOOR AND THE DOG NEEDS WALKING’!!!!


Happy World Marmite Day…ahhh or urgh!

Yep, it’s a thing. #worldmarmiteday ! There will no doubt be the infamous ‘do you love it or hate it ‘questions. (just for the record, I like it. Unless I put too much of a dollop on my toast !) But have a look at all this lot… a collection of recipes which with the best of intentions, I love the idea of putting a few of these together … the reality is I probably won’t but you just may!

I am feeling very curious though…Here are my top three. You can see the rest here . Just look for Marmite Yummies!
