I found these old washers in the shed during a clear out the other day. I have no idea what they should be holding together, but I decided whatever it was hadn’t fallen apart yet so they could be put to better use.

This weekend the Hooklings and I have been preparing for Caribbean Food Week 2016 (22nd-29th August 2016). We were challenged by Grace Food’s who are the UK’s number 1 Caribbean food and drink company, to create the perfect spread fit for a Caribbean street party.
If you have already had your big holiday this summer and are desperately trying to entertain the children for the rest of the holidays on a budget, you should look no further than your garden.
There have been mixed emotions in the Hooked Household over the last few weeks. Minty is overjoyed that she is FINALLY starting school.

Those of you with children will not have failed to have noticed the massive trend which is Pokemon at the moment.

We spent a glorious morning recently at the Mayfield Lavender in Banstead. It is 25 acres of beautiful organic lavender and the perfect back drop for a family photo shoot.
