Recipe: Caramel Squares, Millionaires Shortbread

Over Covid-19 lockdown and during furloughed life I've been doing a lot of baking - much like everybody else! I was put on the furlough scheme at the start of April, 2 weeks into UK lockdown, and since then I've made a variety of cookies, brownies & cakes...with varying degrees of success! I'll hopefully share the recipes that I used for them all at some point but today I want to share the recipe for Caramel Squares, or Millionaire's Shortbread, whatever you usually call them!

Buying a house as first time buyers

Well, hello! It's been an age since I last looked at or posted on my blog, but I'm glad that I've kept it up & running because I want to share about our experience of buying a house as first-time buyers. It has been an experience, to put it lightly!

Starting The Journey // 24-7 Ibiza

Wednesday, 9 August 2017

I'm sat in Belfast International Airport,
and my flight has been delayed by like, 2 hours.
To the point where, I don't even know what Gate I'm supposed to be at,
and that isn't being announced for another 1hr45mins!

So I figured, what better time to start recording my journey with 24-7 Ibiza.
I have a solid wifi signal, a hot coffee, my laptop is all charged up and I'm settled at a table with a clear view of one of those Flight Update screens that everyone seems to flock around at the airport!

Looking Forward

Wednesday, 5 April 2017


I have a question for you...
Do you think it's important to have something to look forward to?
 To have something to fix your eyes on, to strive towards, 
to make working long, hard days worth it?

David & I talk about it pretty often, the need to have something there 
that we're looking forward to, to make everyday life worth it,
to make working opposite shifts to each other worth it.

Recipe: Sweet Banana Bread

Friday, 3 February 2017

I'm doing something a little different & random on my blog today...
I'm sharing a recipe!
It's nothing difficult, by any stretch of the imagination,
but it was an experiment for me & it turned out really well, so I thought I would share it with you!
 

Why I Quit My Job To Travel

Saturday, 28 January 2017

At this moment in time, as I'm putting pen to paper, 
I'm sitting in a froyo cafe (my current place of work) on my break, 
looking out the window at the torrent of snow that's probably blanketing my poor wee car,
(side note - later on it took me a solid 15 mins to de-ice my car...)
and all I can think of is roughly this time last year when I officially "handed my notice in" 
and let my old job know that I was leaving to go travelling. 

That was quite the day.
There were so many different feelings, all these different kinds of emotions
all tied up in that one act of voluntarily leaving a stable place of employment, 
all for 3 months of the unknown.
