Country Kids | Misty Autumn Walks

Country Kids | Misty Autumn Walks

The lovely Jocelyn at The Reading Residence has tagged me in the Q&A Meme, so here are my answers. Where in the world would you most like to be right now? As an ice queen (a lovely nickname due to my love of cold and winter weather) I would love to be somewhere cold and snowy like Lapland or Canada. With my hub and H of course.

Loyd Grossman Mint Masala

I think of all the things I get offered to review on my blog, the food related ones are definitely amongst the favourites for my two guys.; probably because they get to reap the most rewards from it. So being given the opportunity to review some sauces from Loyd Grossman was a definite yes in this household. We were sent a lovely pack: Which included the new Loyd Grossman Mint Masala…
