Get Kids to Biscuiteers for Fathers Day Gifts

I rate myself as a cook. And I am not bad at baking either. One thing I cannot do though, and it kills me, is ice cookies. I look at blog posts and vlogs on how to do it. It looks so easy. It’s possible I have some type of icing dyslexia or something – but try as I might – it’s an epic fail. A.L.W.A.Y.S. So when we decided that we would make something for Fathers Day (anything we usually buy gets grateful received and then bunged in a drawer – never to be used again) we sought professional help and took ourselves to Biscuiteers.

Out and About – Family Tower Bridge Adventure

I live in London. The world’s most vibrant city. But I’m lazy. I stick to my local area, do the same things.

But – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. There’s SO much to do and I am going to schlep my family away from the sport (husband) and iPads (girls) and we are heading OUT AND ABOUT on weekends.
