Today the one with the littlest legs in our household turns 4!! FOUR!! She laughs every day and though she be but little she is fierce!! .
.
4 years today my BFF, my sister in law and the worlds BEST midwife ever (@kirstylou22 ) delivered her into the world and the world’s been a better place since! .
.
On Saturday she had a little party. My ‘thing’ is that I always want to make their birthday cakes every year. I was up until 1.30am on Saturday morning making this cake. It’s not perfect but she loved it!
.
.
I left the cake in the kitchen of the venue where we had the party. I went back downstairs to find that the toilet upstairs had leaked, flooded the bathroom and the toilet water had come through the kitchen ceiling directly on to the cake below 😵😵😵😵
.
.
I cried. I got a hug off my girl @alb2612 and cried a bit more. But then I went into the party room again and saw my 2 girls absolutely belly laughing at the party entertainer and thought ‘if all you have to cry about is cake then you really are lucky AF’ . .
I wiped off the Pissy water, let her blow out her candles, lobbed the cake in the bin and headed to @marksandspenceriom to get a new one for today 😂😂
.
.
Moral of the story is, always count your blessings not your troubles and never ever roll your eyes again at someone crying on the @britishbakeoff 😂😂
.
.
Only the other week I was taking the piss out of Mr BTF for listening to this Richard Harris song and now it’s actually happened to me!! If that’s not karma I don’t know what is 😂😂🎂🌧🚽🤢🙄😬😖🤪😂
.
.
Also thanks so much to @bubucaketoppers for the GORGEOUS cake topper that I ordered last minute but she got to me the next day 😘😘 xx
.
.
Happy birthday my sweet little princess 😍✌🏻enjoy your cake for breakfast 😘😘

Sort of home made - the honey glazed gammon is a ready bake in the tray one from @marksandspenceriom but I made my own garlic and rosemary roast potatoes 😍😍 and boiled my own veg (go me 😂😂) from @robinsonsiom .
.
This was me BTF’s, I had the same without the gammon and with vegan gravy and the girls refused (as per) and had cheese, ham and crackers 🙄
.
.
Stored my leftovers in these brill @kilneruk glass storage boxes. I can’t wait to make a casserole or something coz you can freeze these boxes and then just take off the lid and pop straight in the oven the reheat - how cool is that?!! .
.
Hope you’ve had a brill weekend? My baby is 4 tomorrow - 4!!!! She’s grown up loads even in the last couple of weeks and is like a proper little lady now........ they’ll both always be my babies though ❤️ even when they’re 47 (and I’ll still be cutting their grapes in half, lengthways people, until that age and beyond......!! 😂😂)

This new school term I decided to try and be more organised for me in the mornings. Last school year I made snacks and lunch for the rest of the family but pretty much every day grabbed a packet of Oreos or salted crisps for lunch (vegan options pretty lacking near my work 😂) instead of making myself something too. It’s madness right?! Why would I not just make myself something when I’m already doing it?! .
.
Anyway, the lovely folk at @kilneruk sent me this cool little jar with an attached spoon ✌🏻On Tuesday night I made my own granola (shout if you want the recipe) and yesterday I layered it with fresh berries and @kokodairyfree coconut yogurt for my lunch. I made it about 7 and at 12 the granola was still crunchy even layered with the yogurt 😍
.
.
I felt loads better and didn’t buy loads of random stuff in the shop that I didn’t need along with my biscuits 😂😂
.
.
What’s your new term resolutions? .
.
It’s nearly the weekend though!!!! Yay!!

Breakfast for me this morning was mushrooms and tomatoes with basil on toast. Got all the ingredients from @robinsonsiom the other day (bar the pure spread I used to Cook them off) and I’m so excited that @noabakehouseiom is providing the terrace and cooil road stores with their bread now. NOA BAKEHOUSE ARE MAKING BAPS people of the Isle of Man!! I can’t wait to try their softer bread coz their sourdough is AMAZING!! .

Anyway, both girls refused this breakfast. Miss 3 is eating some golden nuggets cereal that I didn’t even know we had in the cupboard and miss 6 is holding out for for cake incase we visit a cafe today 🙄😂

I made these brownies last week. They went down well!! I need to make a vegan version of these for Moi! .
.
I got sent these amazing @kilneruk storage boxes the other day too - AMAZING!! On my quest to reduce plastic I wasn’t sure how I’d replace my plastic food boxes but I’ve found it now! These can be frozen and the put straight into the oven - how cool is THAT? Air right seal too so perfect for these brownies 🙌🏻🙌🏻
.
.
Wanna make some?
.
. . .
🍫 chocolate brownies 🍫
.
.

Just use the basic recipe and add what ever you want!
.
.
This is a double batch so half the amounts of you don’t want so many- .
.
🍫Ingredients .
🍫370g butter (I used iom creamery)
.
. 🍫200g dark chocolate
.
🍫200g milk chocolate .
🍫170g plain flour (I used @laxeyflour ) . .
🍫80g cocoa powder
.
. 🍫6 large eggs (I used @closeleecefarm manx eggs) .
🍫550g caster sugar
.
🍫🍫Directions .
🍫🍫Preheat oven to 180c (160c fan) and Line a tin with baking paper .
🍫🍫Put the butter in a bowl with the 400g of dark and milk choc and melt over a pan of boiling water and put to one side to cool
. . 🍫🍫Add the eggs and caster sugar to a mixing bowl and using an electric whisk or a mixer whisk until the volume doubles in size and goes pale and creamy (takes about 3-5 mins) . .
🍫🍫Pour the melted choc and butter over the egg and sugar and stir using a plastic spatula using a figure of 8 action to slowly mix together (try and keep all the air in the mix) . .
🍫🍫Sieve in the flour and cocoa powder into the wet mix until combined and then add your chosen flavour - here I mashed up 3 packets of Oreos and added 3/4 to the mix and 1/4 at the end on the top
.
🍫🍫Pour the mix into the lined baking tin and push in the left over choc pieces into the top
.
🍫🍫Bake for 25 mins. If it still wobbles when you bring it out then pop it in for a further couple of minutes and then a further couple more if it still wobbles. .
🍫🍫Leave to cool in the tray and the cut into squares or triangles . .
🍫🍫Stuff your face 🐷 .
.
.
Have a great day!

However, PERFECT weather for a Sunday roast and well done me, I actually cooked a meal - yay!! 😂😂
.
.
Full family hit for lunch today which was ace, the girls absolutely adore their big brother and sister and always go a bit hyper everyone they come round which wasn’t helped by the icecream sundaes they had for pudding.
.
.
Full disclaimer - miss 3 ate 2 roast potatoes for lunch which actually is massive progress as she used to hate them. Let’s ignore the fact that she used to eat all the chicken and veg and leave the potatoes and now just swapped it round 🤦🏼‍♀️
.
.
Miss 6 had 8 cocktail sausages for her tea
.
.
Both had an icecream sundae as I show absolutely no consistency at all in my reaction to what they eat or don’t eat for dinner pudding wise 🙄😂
.
.
Happy Sunday peeps! Hope you have an amazing week ahead 😘

Ummmmm it MUST be autumn if I’m buying damsons and making jam right?!
.
.
I saw these damsons up @robinsonsiom yesterday and couldn’t resist buying some to make some damson jam. .
You know I’m not a fan of cooking things that take ages so making traditional jam does not appeal to me......
.
I decided to try my usual jam making recipe and due to the natural pectin in the damsons it totally worked! Yay! .
.
It can be used as a sweet or savoury jam as it got a beautiful tang! I had it on sweet brioche this morning to offset the tangyness 😍
.
.
You need -
.
💜 200g fresh damsons (halved and destoned) .
💜 100g runny honey (I used local Manx honey)
.
💜2 tbsp water
.
.
💜💜 add all Ingredients to a pan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat slightly and keep stiring until the skin starts to some away from the fruit.
.
💜💜 when most of the skin appears to be separate, pass the mixture through a sieve into a bowl, pressing down with a fork to keep as much of the fruit as possible but leaving behind the skin
.
💜💜return to the pan and bring back to the boil.
.
💜💜reduce to a simmer and stir occasionally for 10-15 minutes ensuring the jam doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
.
💜💜 when thickened pour into a jam jar and pop overnight in the fridge to continue to set ✌🏻
.
.
It’s not a totally set jam but I like mine like that. I love buying fruit in season and there’s so much you can do with damsons! Damson gin anyone?!! .

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet on here but we have been away for the bank holiday weekend to Blackpool ✌🏻😍
.

When we went to Mallorca our flight was delayed by a day and we got some compensation (super quick and super easily - thanks @british_airways ✌🏻✌🏻) so we decided to book a last minute holiday to Blackpool on the @steam_packet_isle_of_man with sail and rail.
.
.
We stayed at the big blue hotel attached to the park which was brilliant! So clean, comfy family room candle rly breakfast. The staff were lovely - in fact everyone was so lovely in both Blackpool and in Liverpool as we were passing through 😍
.
.
We went to @pleasure_beach which the girls loved, swimming at @sandcastlewaterparkblackpool and made bears @buildabear - their fave thing was playing in the arcades on both south and central piers though!
.
.
A brill little family holiday and I would totally recommend Blackpool for a Uk hol. They are really working on doing the place up and you won’t meet kinder happier people than in Blackpool! .
.
Hope you all had a brill bank holiday weekend? Can you believe that’s that last bank holiday before Christmas now??!! 😲

This cake without the topping is totally vegan and the ONLY recipe I’ll ever use for a chocolate cake. .
.
I started making it when my nephew had egg and dairy allergies and it is the easiest moistest tastiest chocolate cake you’ll EVER make! .
.
1 bowl, no mixer - insane! I bought Betty Crocker icing because I couldn’t be arsed making my own which I also believe is vegan (may contain milk) and I spray painted Oreos, malteasers and cut crunchies and dairy milk (obvs the chocolate isn’t vegan) and shoved it in in various places! .
.
Super gorgeous cake topper by @bubucaketoppers 😍😍
.
.
Cake recipe is @sweetlittlebluebird - or google ‘crazy cake’ or ‘depression cake’ (made in the depression when butter and eggs were limited) promise you you’ll never want to make any other chocolate cake again (if you’re vegan, dairy free egg free or not!) .
.
Happy Sunday peeps 😘😘.

Ok so a little while a go a group of mums on here got some shit for giving their kids fish fingers and chips for tea........ .
.
Listen. I’ve tried making my own homemade fish fingers and the girls won’t touch them, same with homemade tomato sauce. What a waste of food and time and effort and money!!
.
.
I think that if people have time to concern themselves over what someone else’s kid is eating then they have far too much time on their hands.
.
.
There are children going hungry. Not just in far flung corners of the world,but maybe next door. If a kid is being fed and has a full little tummy then that’s amazing in my opinion (but that’s just MY opinion remember, not a statement of fact)
.
.
These chips are from Tesco and ingredients are potato and sunflower oil. No different to what I would do if I could be arsed to wash, peel and cut potatoes like that. The cod fish fingers contain fish that will actually be consumed by my kids. The peas are green - yay! And the tomato sauce contains sugar but mixed with the peas gets the green down the throat so a win IMO! .
.
I’m not defending myself - I’m happy with the food I give my kids. It’s just a reminder that so should you be! If you’re feeding your kid then you’re smashing it! .
.
Just a reminder that we’re all doing our best and while instagram may only usually be home made recipes, there may be a mum behind that post that still gives her kids freezer food at times and posts smoothies in the morning with the intent of having a ‘healthy’ day and then baking shopkin cupcakes in the afternoon 🙋🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️😂) .

The sun came out so it was perfect day for the family day at @curraghswildlifepark . Family day has all the usual animal and play park fun but with added free bouncy castles and bucking bronco!
.
.
I have bought a years family pass for the wildlife park for the past 2 years as it’s such good value! The amount we use it it pays for its self by the end of the summer holidays! .
.
The play parks are a brilliant quality and so much fun come rain or shine so we often visit in the winter months too (the girls love the bouncy pillow!).
.
.
This year I was very kindly gifted a years membership so I can show you guys just why I love the park so much! .
.
There’s been loads of new enclosures recently added and my fave new installation is the water tap where you can refill your own water bottles! .
.
There’s 2 outside play parks, a bouncy pillow, an inside soft play area, diggers, train rides (extra cost) as well as lots of animals to see! There’s regular feeds and talks as well. .
.
We have had the best day there today. There was not one ‘I’m bored!’ And the only moan was when we had to go home. I took packed lunch but there is a cafe.
.
.
IOM peeps get yourselves down!!

Slide for the steps - I rolled out puff pastry, cut into strips, mixed cinnamon with apple sauce, spread on the strips, sliced 2 apples thinly and microwaved for 3 mins with 1 tbsp and lemon juice and 1 tsp cinnamon, lay down the side, rolled up, places on baking tray in tin foil cases and baked for 45 mins at 170c fan (190c) At 30 mine I covered with Tim foil to stop the apple getting too brown and let cool and sprinkles with icing sugar and stuffed my face 😂
.
.
I made 3, one for me and the girls each.......... the girls aren’t arsed........ I’ll probably end up eating all 3! .
.
Happy hump day peeps!!

We had a lovely day today at @manxnationalheritage grove museum with @clairechinn_ and her gorgeous girls 😍 the 2 young young ladies that showed us around were a real credit to @manxnationalheritage And kept the kids enthralled! .
.
We went to #davesdeliciousdogs In ramsey for lunch (I had a vegan hot dog!) and then to @stixxiom For pudding! .
.
The Isle of Man is honestly the most amazing place to live 😍😍

Takeaway last night but back to proper meals today! .

Not anything too strenuous, just god old spaghetti and meatballs with (shop bought) garlic bread.
.

These meat balls are literally just mince, garlic and basil and a really simple tomato sauce.
.
.
Miss 6 rejected her meatballs - she doesn’t want to eat meat she said and had the same as me, tomato sauce and pasta and salad.
.
.
Mr BTF and miss 3 had clear plates! (Well apart from the salad from miss 3 😂)
.
.
Happy Monday guys! I love a holiday but it’s good to be home 😍❤️

I always pack far too much and then spend about 3 days washing and drying when I get back! The weather is grey and miserable here now too so no chance of a line dry 😫✌🏻
.
.
I get all my washing powder and @lovezoflora from @robinsonsiom - such good value! It’s not just for fruit and veg you know!! .

.

It’s so clean, fun and child friendly! We haven’t been in a couple of years and it’s got even better! There’s loads of play parks on the beach for kids now. It’s perfect if you like cycling and loads of bike hire places with seats for kids on bikes or their own bikes and helmets. .
.
Holidays are great! You get to see that kids from all over the world don’t listen to their parents and get huffy with changed routines 😂😂 but you also get 100% quality time with your family without having to cook, clean or attend to all the normal daily tasks you have at home! .
.
It was SO HOT!! Hotter than we’ve known before but the splash park and kids pool @fergushotels Pollensa Park was perfect for us all to cool down in.
.
.
If you’re going on holiday I 100% recommend Puerto Pollensa in Majorca! It’s amazing! Anyone else been? .
.
Thanks so much @fergushotels we had a lovely time! And our beach bags from @heymamastore.co.uk were an absolute godsend! Perfect day and night and so cute! .

I’m always hesitant about giving the girls treats. I defo don’t really like them having sweets as if send their behaviour into orbit! Chocolate suits them much better but I can defo still tell they’ve had sugar........I sometimes feel like I give them a treat and then be constantly telling them to calm down after! 😫

What’s your stance on giving ‘treats’ to the kids? .

It doesn’t have to be anything special or take hours to cook...... even if it takes 10 minutes your kids won’t eat it!! 😫😳😂

I absolutely love it though and it’s so quick and Easy! I live in hope that by leading by example that the girls will eventually love stirfrys again. Kids are so weird! For SUCH a long time miss 6 would eat nothing but stir fry but now o may as well be offering her dog shit on toast by her reaction to it 😂😂😂😳🐩💩🍞
.

Anyway, I make it vegan so I can eat the lot and it’s so quick and easy I don’t mind that they refuse...............!! .
