2015 wish list


Ummmmm…… Exsqueeze me! Is anyone else finding it hard to believe that it’s the end of a year?!?

2014. It has been a big year. Sometimes lovely. Sometimes an asshole. I’m not too sad to see it go but I’ll remember some parts fondly. Continue reading


My brother, my person

I remember the exact moment I realised my little brother was no longer the kid who annoyed the bajeezus out of me, but was actually a pretty awesome person. That moment has stuck with me ever since. Continue reading

Ho Ho Ho…. and thank you :-)


Today is my last day at work before I take a couple of days off. I plan to thoroughly enjoy my mini break with my little misters and our nearest and dearest, eating too much, laughing too loudly and loving every second.

Before the crazy begins, I wanted to wish each of you the merriest of Christmases. I truly hope you have a wonderful day, however you celebrate. May the big day start way too early, be filled with fun, food and love; and end in stretchy pants, happiness and a big nap.

Thank you for keeping me company, reading my posts and joining in. I appreciate it all, so much.

I’d love to hear how your celebrations went!

Merry, merry Christmas and loads of love to you all,

Kate xx

Dessert anyone?

Christmas lunch is the best. It’s the one day of the year when it’s totally acceptable, expected even, to eat yourself into a food coma.

The annual feast is not complete without dessert. Even if you’ve eaten your own weight in seafood or roast or BBQ’d whatever, there’s always just enough room left for sweets. If you have little ones that just don’t do fruit cake or pudding then an alternate is definitely needed!


White chocolate snowball and strawberry trifle

Choc ripple cake

Ultimate cranberry pudding cake

Toblerone cheesecake

Raspberry, pistachio and rosewater semifreddo


Ultimate fruit salad

Vegan chocolate mousse

Butterscotch self-saucing pudding


What do you have for dessert on Christmas Day?
