Christmas Pancakes and Rice Porridge!

Christmas Pancakes and Rice Porridge!

Now as some of you might have caught on to from my previous posts, I love Christmas and I love Hygge! This weekend it was finally time to go full on Christmas Hygge in our house. Now I promised J I would wait till December started however today, Sunday the 27th Of November, is the 1st Sunday of Advent! Meaning it is Christmas and definitely time to get the Christmas Stockings up! Some of you might be thinking ‘what is…

10 Reasons why I love Baby wearing

10 Reasons why I love Baby wearing

Today I decided to get Elliot in the snow suit and place him in the Buggy to go to play group – That was a mistake. You see normally when we go out I put Elliot in the sling, as baby wearing has been our preferred method of getting out and about for a while, but for some reason, I thought I’d just give the (way too expensive ‘had-to-have’!) Buggy a chance. It started out okay, we had to nip…

A day in the Forest

A day in the Forest

We like to go out on Sundays, it’s the only day of the week that J always has off, and luckily for us this Sunday the weather was perfect for a trip to the lakes! I’ve gone in Christmas planning mode, I love Christmas and all the traditions that surround it. In my family we’ve always had a Calendar light counting down for Christmas, so I really wanted to get out in the Forests to see what I could find…

A bit of Q&A

A bit of Q&A

Woke up this morning to the lovely Karen from Twotinyhands having tagged me in a little bit of blogging Q&A, thank you! I’m very new to the blogging game, but hopefully my answers will shed some light on who I am and what motivates me. How long have you been blogging and what is your best and worst thing about it? I started my blog at the end of October this year, so I’m very much a newbie! I had…

Carrot Cupcakes & Family Parties

Carrot Cupcakes & Family Parties

As much as I love Autumn, my relationship to Winter is a tad more ambivalent. You see I love Christmas, but apart from that I don’t do well with the shorter days, too much darkness for me. That is why I like to look back to warmer, sunnier times. Back in June, when the days where still long and the leaves still green, we threw Elliot a naming party for friends and family, with lots of delicious homemade goodies, amongst…

Something about Bikes and Bickering

Something about Bikes and Bickering

Today was supposed to have been a typical  Sunday in our house. Late out from under the covers (well late the second time around, as Elliot likes to start his days around 5am) then on with chores, groceries, tidying and what not, all done swiftly thus leaving the rest of the day to have a nice family outing. Today was NOT a typical Sunday. I blame sleep deprivation (courtesy of one little man). You see what was supposed to have come out…

Travelling with a Child

Travelling with a Child

Travelling with a child solo can seem like a Mammoth task. We spent all day yesterday travelling, the little man and I. It’s a long journey travelling from the eastern parts of Jutland, all the way to Copenhagen and then to the north of England. We started our day by train. I’d planned for having to entertain, but Elliot decided to start the trip with a nap! Good thinking I say, if only I could’ve joined in! Elliot is already…

Caramel Hazelnut Tart & Hygge

Caramel Hazelnut Tart & Hygge

When the evenings get longer and the winds are howling outside, there is nothing I like more than to Hygge! Hygge is a Danish word, well more than just a word really, it’s a feeling. It describes moments when you are having a real lovely time. To me Hygge would be an evening spent with family or friends, candles lit, brews at the ready and just having a lovely time, no stress, perhaps time to play a board game. Hygge…

A Day In The Life of…

Sometimes things do not go as planned, sometimes you try and be Supermom, but fall short! Fall short because you ran out of coffee, your little one is Teething and decided that the day started at 4:30am!!! Yesterday was one of those days where I could have easily just rolled up and felt like nothing I did was good enough! (That is I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a mum to have the time to just roll up and feel…

Apple Hunting and Yummy Birds Nests!

Apple Hunting and Yummy Birds Nests!

Yesterday I went Apple hunting with the nephew, there are these gorgeous Apple trees only a stone throw from my childhood home, absolutely beaming with ripe Apples ready for picking! Its lovely to be able to just go outdoors and pick Apples, my nephew was loving it! And it was a great way to also remind him where things come from, he can be quite the fuzzy eater, but he munched down 3 delicious apples and also got a nice…
