How to beat the dark days...

Occasionally I have what I call my dark days, which are the days when I wake and just don't feel myself. Do you get them to? I mean this motherhood malarkey is rather hard some weeks isn't it, and I think the stress just creeps up on me. But I always try to keep soldiering on so here are my top 5 tips that help me get through those dark days. Hope they help you to.

Homemade Sausage Rolls recipe...

Today's post was a favourite from my old blog, so here it is for you lovely lot, my Homemade Sausage Rolls recipe.



What you'll need
Sausage Meat 375g
Chives roughly 20g
Parsley roughly 20g
Puff Pastry 320g (or just buy a pack like I did, makes it so much easier.)
A little milk for brushing on the top.
Firstly heat your oven to gas mark 6 or 200c for fan ovens. After prep your baking tray, I use a small amount of butter rubbed all over and a piece of baking paper for this. Also roll and lay out the puff pastry across the baking tray for later. At this point I also like to get all my ingredients and bowls etc laid out across my work surface, to make it easier as I go.

Roughly chop the chives and parsley, the smaller the better so you have a nice even consistency throughout the meat, once you've rubbed it together. When the herbs are chopped take a bowl and pop half of each inside, then add all the sausage meat. This is the messy part so get your hands stuck in literally... lol

Rub all the chives, parsley and sausage meat together and form a ball. Once your happy that it's mixed in nicely add the rest of the herbs. Again get your hands stuck in and squid everything together. Now it's time to grab your prepped baking tray.
Just as the pictures show, lay four even lines of the mixture across the puff pastry. Next cut lines between each, and roll them up. A little tip make sure you have a gap both sides of the mixture, to make sure nothing spills out while rolling. Once there rolled up lay them on the baking tray, leaving gaps between so they don't stick together.

After pop the tray in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, it'll make it easier when you cut them up later.

At this point it's up to you, you can cut them up like I have or make bigger ones. Cooking times are the same for all sizes. When you've decided which size to go for, brush a little milk across the top of each roll.

Then it's into the oven with them. I put them on for 25 minutes firstly (gas mark 6 or 200 fan), then I check them and if they need longer I'll leave them in for another 5 minutes.
So there you have it, that's my homemade sausage roll recipe. If you make them please send me your pics I'd love to see them.

    1. Lol, they are sooo yummy... I've got a canon aswell, but I'm also pretty useless with it. I think I just use the basic settings. Plus take pics in bright daytime sun.

Labour & Birth Story...Phoebe

My beautiful little girl Phoebe entered the world on 22nd June 2016, and ever since it's been quite a roller coaster of emotions for me. From sheer panic because I had absolutely no clue what I was actually supposed to be doing...lol I'm sure all new mummies probably felt the same, to utter joy when she took her first steps, said her first word, and called me mummy for the first time. Motherhood is by far the best job I've ever had. It comes with highs and lows which I'll continue to share. But let's go back a bit and start with my labour & birth story...

June 22nd 2016

I actually think my labour officially started the night before I had Phoebe, because I couldn't sleep at all and just felt so frigidity and odd. Okay so odd doesn't really explain much but, I just felt like something wasn't as it had been before. Also through out my pregnancy I'd always said, that I had a feeling the baby would come early, and her due date was actually 1st July, …
