Our Favourite Pancake Recipes
Pancake Tuesday, finally the day where you can eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and not have to make excuses! Remember going into school after Pancake Tuesday and the competition as to who had eaten the most pancakes 😂. Not sure about you, but pancakes were much more simple then, and to be honest they are still my favourite ones, a bit of sugar and lemon and I'm happy! I also always remember my mum making the batter the night before, why was that?
Anyway, here are some of our favourite pancakes to make in this house, it doesn't need to be Pancake Tuesday to whip out the pan and rustle up some pancakes, we probably have them once a week, and use lots of different fillings, I always go for the sweet/fruit filling option, but you can always have a savoury pankcake too!
How We Managed The Dreaded Chicken Pox
Last week, 9 days ago exactly (to give you a timeframe to work by) Amelia was getting undressed for her bath and said "look at my spots mummy". There was maybe 3/4 little red spots on her chest and a couple more on her back. She wasn't scratching, had not been unwell in the days leading up to the spots appearing or behaving out of the norm, I'm saying this, because some kids may be unwell with cold like symptoms/fatigue/crying/loss of appetite in the days leading up to the spots appearing.
I'm writing this post as I didn't know if they were Chicken Pox or not, and spent a lot of time asking other parents how they treated their kids to ease the symptoms. I hope that this collection of advice that I took on board from parents that have been through it before will guide you in those first few days when they are unwell and itchy, how many days she symptomatic and how we treated her.
Kilkenny Picture Perfect
Kilkenny is such a beautiful city, and as a relative newbie still to this city, I'm discovering new places to visit, and more so, new places to photograph. It's a blogger thing, you see new buildings in different ways every time you walk past them. As a medieval city it has that old world charm with the most beautifully designed buildings. Kilkenny Castle sits right in the middle of the city and is a place that I photograph more than I care to remember. Its easy to capture pretty pictures when your background looks like this. Ive been on the lookout for a new camera recently, my own DSLR is far too big and love the look of the 4K Compact System Camera Panasonic
Kilkenny is home to beautiful parks, gardens, museums and craft shops and what’s more exciting is that numerous are FREE! Plan a picnic with the kids, sip coffee while you browse through the charming arts and craft or why not take a step back in time and visit the National Art Museum.

4 minutes to prepare and cooked in the same length of time it took me to go upstairs and dress Harry.
*Raisins tend to burn if on top, so half way through cover with some tin foil to prevent burning!
No Chocolate Rice Krispie Bars
"True happiness is a cookie in each hand"
Want something to make with the kids tomorrow or over the weekend?
I stupidly told Amelia today we would make Rice Krispie cakes, to try and get her and Harry in out of the prain….I think 1.5hrs was more than enough, we had to get out in the fresh air for a while, their wet gear and wellies were my best purchase last year!
So we got home…and no chocolate! There was no way I was going out again, so put my thinking cap on! DRINKING CHOCOLATE saved the day. It was a risk that worked.A simple 55g, 55g,55g recipe and they taste delicious!

First Aid For Children & Infants
Nobody wants to think about their baby or a child they care for becoming unwell. Of course if in any doubt always bring your child to the GP or nearest Emergency Department. Unfortunately sometimes, you may have to perform first aid at home. I would highly recommend all parents do a first aid course, if anything it gives piece of mind. (more…)
