It’s been a bit quiet round here as of late, and for good reason! Me and Tom packed up our bags and moved south of the river, to beautiful Windmill Hill.


We don’t get the internet for another week or so, so blogging is going to be a bit hit and miss for the time being! I thought I would just give you lovely folks a snoop into what I’ve been up to this past week…

Exploring our new stomping ground. Windmill Hill is between Bedminster and Totterdown, on the south side (arguably the best side) of the river. Everyone is mega friendly round here, plus we live right next to a massive park!

Unpacking seemingly endless piles of boxes. I have way too many clothes! I think another Frock Swap might be in order.


Growing veggies! We’ve inherited a pretty decent little vegetable patch, so I’ve turned my hand to a spot of gardening. I’m hoping to get some winter veg in soon. It’s a pity the neighbourhood cats like to leave little ‘surprises’ in my flower beds though… Ewww.

Reading this article about the first thing different bloggers saved up for, including yours truly! It’s a pretty fascinating read, who knew Tamagotchis were so popular?


Eating mountains of leftover goods from our brand spanking new slow cooker, easily the best thing we’ve ever bought! This was beef and mushrooms slow cooked in red wine, with tagliatelle. What is it about cooking something for 8 hours that makes it so darn delicious?

Normal service will resume shortly, but for now, enjoy the rest of the week!

  1. Congrats on your new place – inheriting a veg patch is the best (although the veg patch in our house was long gone but the raspberries were still kicking around). I’d love to know what you’ve been cooking in your slow cooker. I have one and i’ve only used it twice in nearly three years – once being last week for a curry recipe.

    • I might do a series of slow cooker recipes over winter.. watch this space! It’s amazing, you just pop it on in the morning then come home to tasty grub 🙂

  2. Frock swap!!!!!!! 🙂

    • Blog Club Frock Swap!!

      • YES!!! OMG YES! I’ve just moved house and moved in with the boyf for the first time… he says I have to have a purge *sob* Boy suck.

        • Ooh where have you moved to? What happened to the quails?! Yes boys do suck, he says he doesn’t have as many clothes as me but he totes does.

          • I’ve moved to Montpelier! I’m just two streets over from the train station, nearly opposite the Cadbury pub. And live opposite someone from Massive Attack- say whaaaat! I’m thinking when we’ve fully unpacked, and my foots healed, id love to have you lovely blogger ladies over for tea! And perhaps a frock swap! 🙂 perhaps a ‘goodbye summer, hello autumn, let’s get cleaning out our closets’ kinda thang! 🙂

  3. That stew looks amazing!

  4. Woohoo, congratulations on the new place! Look forward to seeing some pictures at some point! 🙂 xx

  6. Congratulations on moving! We have a slow cooker but I don’t know what to do with it as I don’t really eat meat – have you tried any veggie recipes in it yet?
