The past 2 years have been some what of an adventure but not one that I would ever have picked.  Life is so different now to what it was 2 years ago and it really has been a huge rollercoaster of a ride to get to where I am today.  By no stretch of the imagination has it been a fun ride, more like a neverending ghost train stuck on full speed.  I’m in need of an adventure.  An adventure that takes me far away from the winter weather in the UK.  An adventure that includes some winter sun and… View Post

The lovely people at Biscuiteers’ sent me a box of their fruit iced vanilla biscuits to try.  Biscuiteers are a London based company run by husband and wife team Harriet Hastings and Stevie Congdon.  Buscuiteers’ launched in Autumn of 2007 with their amazing mission staement: ‘Why send flowers when you can send biscuits instead?’ Having tried this beautiful fruit basket of biscuits I really do agree with this mission staement although the odd bunch of flowers won’t go amiss every now and then.
