Cookhouse and Pub - A Meal Out Review

Leave a Comment
Last week I was invited to review Cookhouse and Pub on Nottingham Road in Ripley with a table for 4 for myself, Stuart and our friends Paul and Julie. It was a really cold and snowy day that we went and a bit of a drive at about 20 minutes away so when we arrived I was hoping the food would be good as I was hungry by then and freezing cold!

We love this with a pasta dish or risotto, it is really tasty and filling. A nice change from simple fried or boiled vegetables with lots of flavour and almost a meal in itself!

Pret a Pousser Grey Oyster Mushroom Growing Kit Review

Leave a Comment
When Pret a Pousser contacted me and asked me to review their Grey Oyster mushroom kit (Affiliate link) I was so excited as I have never grown mushrooms and thought it would be a fun thing to do with Ben. I was however a little apprehensive as I am not at all green fingered! I appreciate these kits are supposed to be very easy, but so is looking after a cactus and I always seem to kill those!

Sustainable Living with Electric Cars - Making the Best Future for our Children

Leave a Comment
**Sponsored Post**

I often wonder how the future will be for Ben and then his children and so on. The world seems to be changing so fast and things don't last forever do they. When I was young all cars had leaded petrol and must have had such an impact on the environment. As time has passed we have moved to most cars being unleaded and some diesel. Now electric cars are becoming more popular.
