It's such a cliche but a cup of tea solves everything doesn't it?! I've been trying to eat a little more healthily lately and so I've been trying to make tea my treat in the daytime, rather than doughnuts or some other deliciously sweet and sugary snack.

I think I've mentioned before that I'm making my sister's wedding cake for her wedding in October, I've been furiously pinning away (you can check out my board here), but sometimes having an actual thing to hold, read and inspire is just the thing and 'The Handmade Wedding Cake' by Natasha Collins is just the thing.

Hands up who has the post bank holiday blues? Meee! I'm pretty tired from doing lots of things outdoors (that and my first back to school/preschool run), I've definitely over indulged in chocolate eggs, and the house is still full of cake crumbs and toys but oh it was so worth it!

March went by in such a flash, but it was so lovely! Kids costumes, spring flowers and trips to the seaside it has been so perfect - ended beautifully with the Easter holidays (no more school run for 2 whole weeks, woop!)

This is one of my favourite tried and tested recipes from my Mum - you can't really go wrong with it, and its really simple so the perfect treat to get the kids involved with too. I usually make it plain but I couldn't resist adding some mini eggs too, because well, its the season!

January has a pretty bad reputation as a hard month, but to be honest I find February a much harder slog, cold and not quite yet spring and certainly with our family, plagued by those pesky school germs (chicken pox anyone?!) it's so easy to see it as a write off. Most of my favourite blog posts to read are the positive ones that celebrate the small things in life, happy lists, little loves and many others. So I thought I'd share some of my moments of happiness in the month here.
