the way to a man’s heart

is through his stomach so they say.  Love inspired baked goods might work for some men but for my beloved a bottle of his favourite Badger Beer always goes down well in all senses of the word. 

Wishing you all a loved filled day

    Love Badger beer but never had ‘Poacher’s Choice’. Where do you get it from?

      Quays Sainsbury’s and St Oswald’s Tesco both sold out 😦

    Miss M – yes I’ve heard it can effect the liver {cheeky grin}
    The fluffsters got cat milk from me and cookie from G!

    husband – hmm, yes dear! You’ll be mentioning crisps next…

    Sebastian – it’s a popular one so you have to be quick – the most reliable supply is out at the new Sainsburys at The Quays

    don’t know if I would love the beer but I do love a good label – hope you had a nice valentines days

    btw didn’t recognise my own photo til I saw the link at the bottom of the post – love the way you put the photos together

      the badger beers all have hints of fruit – this one is damson and the first one we ever tried (that reeled us in to try the rest) was a peachy one. I’m not a beer drinker either but I make an exception for these :o)
      I was going to email you about the pic but remembered you get the updates so thought you’d like the surprise

    The other one that is interesting is “Blandford Fly” which is ginger infused and was rejected out of hand by Nic’s older brother Christmas 2008 – so that one is not for the unadventurous, but we like it being fans of ginger.

We haven't even left the bedroom yet and Euan's got his nature head on for #30dayswild - pretending to be Walter the slug from Beatbugs using his IKEA tunnel! @gloswildlife #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Day 16 of #30dayswild - reading nature stories at bedtime. One of E's favourites 'The winter hedgehog'. When I said to E we hadn't really done a random act of wildness today he immediately replied "yes we did, we went outside, we looked at flowers and Luca picked up pine cones on the way to Alfie's party". Oh yes! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog @gloswildlife

Day 15 of #30dayswild @gloswildlife - a toddler paced wonder walk to simply notice interesting things on the walk home from school.
