Not sure what to write here, so… hi 👋

Hello, thank you for taking your time to read this. I am a mum living in North Yorkshire with my husband and our two boys. I decided to start this blog to write about three of my passions – baking, books and bargains! Although there will probably be ramblings about all sorts of other stuff we get up to, we are always busy.

Books – I am never without a book, there’s always one in my handbag just in case I have a spare moment. I read everything from YA, horror and crime to fantasy, non fiction and romance (even the odd mills and boon 🤫) My children share my reading passion so I will be reviewing all sorts. And each review will get a rating on my ‘was it worth my time?’ scale.

Baking – I’ll admit my bakes aren’t always the prettiest, I’m no contender for GBBO, but I never get complaints about the taste. I’ll be writing about some of my favourite bakes and experiments. I enjoy adding ingredients without measuring…yes I have the odd disaster.

Bargains – I never pay full price. Through apps, coupons, competitions, buying second hand and shopping sales, I save pennies wherever I can so that we can spend more time on days out and experiences. So I’ve decided to share my thrifty ways.
