23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_blackberries in bowl 4BIt was a bit too early for blackberries when we went foraging last month but we were itching to try the new Oxo Good Grips 3 piece berry bowl and colander set our friends at OXO sent to us.  Our meagre blackberry pickings were topped up with damsons found at my childhood park.23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_damsons and blackberries 4B
E played with Nana while I went picking then ate most of the blackberries I found!

Some of the blackberries made it home (safely stored in our bowl with it’s clear lid) and we boiled them up with the damsons and an apple to make cordial.
Totally delicious!

The third piece of the berry bowl set is a colander that sits neatly inside the bowl and has long slits for faster drainage. E tested it for strength and style and it passed with flying colours on both counts.Collage - berry bowl 4B

Next we shelled peas.  Not allotment grown sadly but delicious and a lovely way to pass the time on a grey day. 23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_shelling peas 4B23-8-14 - Oxo bowl_shelling peas profile 4B
Finally it made a terrific container for E’s treasure from his walk in the gardens with it’s non-slip base, durable plastic and attractive two-tone colour. We’ve come to expect nothing less from the Good Grips range.Collage - Oxo bowl_conkers 4B

Disclosure: I was sent the bowl set to review. I was not required to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
