A Perfect Italian Menu (by some lovely Italians!) – Simple, Easy, Bruschetta Recipe.

Last week, thanks to BookingsForYou, we spent a day having a fabulous meal prepared for us by a family of Italian chefs.

Silver Wedding Party – Dressing the Tables

Recently we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary (yes, you’re right I really am far too young to have been married so long, thank you ). We debated for ages over what to do to celebrate, and eventually decided on a small garden party, on a grand scale, on as small a budget as we could manage.
