A blog about simple family life from baking bread to paddling in streams, enjoying quirky holidays, camping in our bell tent and discovering fab places to visit, so please join us over a cup of tea and slice of cake and share our everyday adventures of family life with three boys!

We love Sundays, where we can potter about at a more leisurely pace, playing and baking. Whilst the babe played very loudly on the keyboard, I tried out a new plum and frangipane tart recipe that was absolutely delicious. 

My mum always used to make plum crumble when I was a child and she'd always keep the stones in and count them out as we discovered them; tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief! 


  1. Oooooh what a perfect recipe for a Bank Holiday like this has been! Love that peg/shelf/inspiration wall :)

  2. haha we do that with any kind of stones or pips! I wonder where the rhyme and sentiment originates?
    interesting to hear we are not the only ones with this family tradition :-)
