Recipe: Halloween Shortbread Biscuits

Halloween is the perfect opportunity in our flat to get our craft on. There seem to be unlimited numbers of activities, games and crafts that are centred around Halloween and it would be mad not to celebrate the holiday in style with Luke. We’ve started to get excited about Halloween now that October has arrived. I can’t wait to do some pumpkin carving – you’d think by now I’d be able to do a decent job, but nope, I still suck at it!

For some reason, during the summer holidays, this all went completely down hill. We had tantrums galore, a very hungry child and an extremely emotional and frustrated mummy.

Days Out: A Day Out With Thomas On The Watercress Line

Luke hit the motherload in terms of exciting treats recently when we took him along to see Thomas the Tank Engine and all his friends on the Day Out With Thomas event on the Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line. Like every child, Luke has been obsessed with Thomas since he was a toddler. It’s not often you get the opportunity to see your favourite characters in real life, let alone ride on and interact with them. As an adult, it’s also not often that you see fully working steam trains whizzing about! So come Sunday morning, the whole family...
