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.

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
