She is very bossy! That is a statement that we hear so often in regard to women, we often say those words so carelessly as though the characteristics that make her ‘bossy’ are not often encouraged in young boys. I read Sheryl Sandberg’s highly acclaimed book ‘lean in’ and after reading it I felt invigorated. […]

Today we’re baking some sinfully delightful brownies. Actually scratch that. These are horrible. At least I think so. I’m not very good at brownies, they are not my favourite things to eat, but I tend to bake them rather well. However I’m not so sure of this batch! I included the ingredients below just so […]
