A Mini Blog Break and Hello World Cup!

We’re very close to welcoming baby number three, so it seems an appropriate time to thank you for all your lovely comments of support, particularly on May’s Simple and in Season round up and more generally on social media. The blog may seem a bit quiet, but I’ll still be keeping up with a few freelance commissions. This week has also been an especially exciting week for new opportunities, so I’ll definitely be back soon to keep you up to date. In the meantime, the World Cup in Brazil kicks off today. I’ve been experimenting with these Croatian Mini Doughnuts, called Fritule (or boozy doughnuts as JamieOliver.com named them!) I hope you have time to pop over to have a read of my post and hopefully be inspired to try them over the weekend. Keep an eye on my feed, too, for recipes from Russia and Bosnia over the coming weeks.

    I love the look of those little doughnuts, though I don’t remember trying them in Croatia (maybe I was in the wrong part?)

    Best of luck to you with the bump!

    Good luck Ren, I can’t wait to hear all about your new baby when it arrives! This is a great time of year for a new born, I have two summer born daughters and I remember spending lots of time in the garden and the park and outside cafes drinking coffee to keep me awake!

    Wishing you all the best for the next few weeks Ren, and try and get some rest before baby makes their appearance! Good luck lovely, so excited for you xx
