Banana Pancakes

My kids love pancakes and this little recipe is not only easy and healthy, my toddlers have no idea theses are good for them and scoff them down and ask for more…so I’m happy to make these a few times a week for the whole family! 1 banana 1 egg 25g of porridge oats (optional) A pinch of cinnamon or vanilla extract Whizz these ingredients in your blender until nice and smooth.

Cinema Visits With Kids

Taking your little monster to the cinema can be a fun time or a total disaster. I have to say I’ve experienced both. Before I had children going to see a film was easy: dinner, wine, and then popcorn with another glass of wine! We could go any day of the week. Anything starring Vin Diesel, Gerard Butler or Bradley cooper then I was there. We all have our favorite reasons for going to a movie…don’t we?!

Good Friday? Great Friday Actually!

It’s Good Friday so Allan suggested “let’s go out for lunch”. I secretly felt sick inside at the thought of having to control my 3 year old 1 year old when we eat out as one of them will normally cause a traumatic scene, and after the week I’ve had it was the last thing on my mind. However we’ve been stuck in-doors all week as Georgia, our 3 year old, has been poorly so I painted on a smile and packed the changing bag with everything I could think of stuffing in there and jumped in the car....
