Recipe: Air fryer fries

Airfryer chips

I absolutely love these and never get tired of just how delicious they are! Crispy on the outside and lovely and fluffy on the inside. These airfryer chips are a great alternative to the chip shop and contain less fat too!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #99 Meal Plan

Happy Friday! Hopefully you’ve had a great week, as I have. We’ve had a LOT of work going on at home this week, and it feels like we are making nice progress towards it being more homely here. Which is lovely! I meal plan to save money, where possible, make the most of bargains and use up everything we have in. I’m loving getting back to meal planning and really excited about normality returning to our life after a busy month. This week I want to try and ensure that we’re having absolutely minimal food waste, ideally none if possible, and to avoid expensive takeaways too. Meal planning helps us to stay organised and saves us money too. Every week I share with you my meal plan for the coming week and provide a post for other bloggers to link up (see below). I love seeing what everyone is linking up meal plan wise, cooking each week and also getting inspiration for my own meal plan too. I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money saving. Don’t forget to check out my post to help you avoid overspending on your groceries.

Review: The Christmas Present by Alexander McCabe + a giveaway (AD)

AD. Christmas feels like such a magical time, more so this year. We have recently moved house and I’m even more excited for Christmas than normal. We will be able to decorate our house this year, including our garden, and Daisy is 3 so is the perfect age to buy into the magic of the festive season. Christmas can be such a busy time. Between the mad dash to find the perfect gift, the visits to various relatives and all of the activities it can almost feel a little non-stop. We will be taking time this festive season, every evening, to light an advent candle together and spend some time reading together before bed. I’m gathering a selection of books to enjoy in the evenings with Daisy, as part of our bedtime routine, and I just had to tell you about ‘The Christmas Present’ as it is absolutely beautiful!

Living Arrows 46/52 [2019]

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. We’ve just returned from a family holiday so I’m looking forward to getting back on track with normal life now. Our break was lovely and relaxing, and just what we needed after the stress of moving house and everything that we have had going on here. Now we can get on with decorating two more rooms at home and looking forward to Christmas time! I’m really happy with how fast the rest of the year is going as I’m looking forward to Spring already. Terrible to wish the time away I know! Anyway, another week rolls around and this weeks living arrows 46/52 post is now live!

Daisy is hugging the Christmas tree outside the Centerparcs Woburn hotel. We had a great time on holiday and Daisy loved all of the festive decor, as always. It was so nice to be away together, not work for 5 days, and just enjoy lots of time together.

Christmas gifts for children (AD)

AD. We were gifted the items within this gift guide in exchange for coverage. Our daughter Daisy is 3, soon to be 4, and as such I’m quite the expert on toys for her age range now. Being an Auntie to 15 nieces and nephews means that over the years I’ve learned a thing or two about toys at Christmas time. I’ve gathered together some of my favourite Christmas gifts for children from this year for this gift guide. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for the little ones in your family.
