I've learned a lot while I've been dating dinosaurs. While some can exceed expectations, on the whole they are creatures
The cake is absolutely decadent but the great news (and the big difference!) is that the toffee won't break your teeth, the colours are from beetroot, rather than beetles and there is no white refined sugar in this recipe!
It’s that glorious time of year where the Notting Hill Carnival rolls out its annual smorgasbord of dancing, music and general
I'm a big advocate for continuing to make an effort in your relationship, after you've made it "official", and I love finding new, fun, and most importantly budget-friendly date-night ideas. Here are my top five money-saving tips for dating on a budget.

In a way I do envy those that are childless and about to embark on a relationship that will see them marry and have kids as the years progress. Single parents like us do the best they can for ourselves and for our kids - but the best time to get it right is before you've got it wrong, but some people need to get it wrong before they are ready to get it right!
