The Big Allotment Challenge follows in the footsteps of the Great British Bake Off to try and inspire Brits to be more self-sufficient. I love baking, but as a London resident, the only growing I do is a few tomatoes and runner beans on the roof terrace.
I’m sure that like me, most people like the idea of an allotment – picking vegetables for dinner and feeling that sense of pride because you actually grew them yourself. My godparents live in Norfolk and they grow vegetables, make jam and bake bread – it all tastes so much nicer and I’m really quite jealous of their idyllic way of life.
First we had the BAFTAs and then the Oscars – glittering ceremonies full of Hollywood’s finest.
Then we watched in awe as Disney’s Frozen (starring Idina Menzel) became the sixth highest grossing film ever, as it delighted adults and children around the world with its Oscar-winning song Let It Go.
It’s the end of the week! That means it’s cocktail time… This week’s cocktail is The Chocolate Martini or as we like to call it: The Chocolatini
It’s really simple to make, but it is Easter weekend (four days off – hurrah) so obviously we had to choose something chocolatey.
We all love a good Easter egg hunt. You can have fun hiding the eggs inside and outside and your kids will love hunting for them.
Have a look at our Easter egg hunt ideas to make your kids very happy bunnies this Easter. We’ve also shared some of our favourite Easter recipes to make Easter tea even tastier.
You know you’ve got to do it. You’ve been saying it for months. You need to paint that wall, trim the hedges and put up those shelves. You just haven’t had time…
But, this weekend you have a whole four days, so why not devote some time to finally getting your gardening or DIY projects sorted?
