I wasn’t allowed to wear white as a child and now I can see why?

What mother in her right mind would let her daughter dress in white on Easter Sunday? Hmmm….let’s think about that; a day where kids can eat chocolate from the time they get up to the time they go to bed, coupled with chocolaty fingers and a very bad habit of using her clothes instead of a serviette.

To make matters worse we went on to the Annual Cadbury Easter Hunt at Ashridge Forest, we always have a great time, you get a map and clues to solve with an Easter Egg at the end but unfortunately, it was a mud bath this year.  It’s a flipping miracle the clothes weren’t ruined!

The Blue and White striped sweatshirt is Joules from Elfin Clothing (£27.95) and the white leggings (£12.50) are from Polarn O Pyret an all time favourite.


Luckily, they will live to see another day!

Disclosure:  both the top and trousers were complimentary




The Obligatory Egg Nests!

I don’t know what comes over me when it comes to holidays.  I turn into someone kind of deranged domesticated super mum, crafting and cooking, which is so unlike me.  Thank goodness for google.

Yesterday we dyed some Easter eggs and made some Cornflake Chocolate Egg Nests.  We had to improvise as the corner shop didn’t have any mini eggs!

Hopefully, Easter is over soon as I peaked too early!

Makes 10-12


  • 230g of milk chocolate
  • Cornflakes
  • M and M’s


  1. Break the chocolate up and melt in a metal bowl above a pan of boiling/ simmering water.
  2. Remove the bowl from heat and mix in cornflakes.  This involves a bit of guess work.  Keep adding until you feel that it will still form into a nest.
  3. Spoon the mixture into muffin cases.  Press down and top with the M and M’s (eggs).
  4. Put in the fridge for an hour or so until they harden.

My work here is done!
