Peace of Cake London

Recently we decided on an impromptu trip to Selfridges when we arrived it was Nate's normal snack time but we had nothing for him to snack on. Off we set to find something suitable for him to nibble on, as we were out with his godmother it had to be something nice. Nate's godmother found these lovely biscuits by Peace of Cake they are not only dairy free but also gluten free. 


They were so lovely that even the non dairy-free/gluten-free among us loved them and didn't notice a difference. It was also great to find something that Nate can eat without me having to carry a bag full of safe goodies with me.

RAF Museum

One of Nate's Christmas presents was a LeapPad he loves the camera functionality so much we have to go places to take pictures. This week as he cousin was on half term we decided to go to the RAF Museum and take some pictures.


There are lots of interesting aircraft to take pictures of an even play in. Nate wandered around happily taking pictures of everything, although he did have his favourites. There is a lovely play area in the RAF Museum as well, which Nate happily put down his LeapPad to have a play on. It's great watching him wander around deciding what he wants to take a picture of and then playing with the images on the photo editing software on the leap pad. There is a lovely picture of him which he has mirrored himself and put a little crown on his head.

Waterlogged runs.

Some of my runs have been very interesting with all of the rain we have been having. I quite enjoy running around our local Nature Reserve as it gives me the opportunity to look at what our local river is doing. Last week on one of my runs I was confronted with this:


 The path was underwater, I didn't run through it. I'm not sure my shoes would have coped with it and running with soaking wet feet in the cold isn't something I would have found enjoyable.

Down there is normally a path, our dog used to love running up these steps. At the minute it is back to being a path, not a path I'd use at the minute due to being waterlogged but not under a foot of water either.

Frank bars

I've been a little quiet here for a while as real life got in the way a bit. I'm back now though. We were recently sent some Frank Bars, they are gluten, nut and dairy free. Perfect for Nate, so as soon as they arrived we had to try one. Nate chose the Chocolate and Oat to try and we happily shared this, the other flavours I haven't been so lucky with. These are perfect snacks for a little person and a great post run snack.


Frank Bars come in five flavours: Chocolate and Oat, Double Chocolate, Chocolate and Orange, Chocolate and Strawberry and Chocolate and Blueberry. Of the little nibble I have been allowed of the other bars, my favourites are Double Chocolate and Chocolate and Orange. These bars are yummy treats for anyone not just those with allergies.


All of the bars have a lovely coconutty flavour from the coconut cream used, we love coconut especially as it is our most used milk alternative. All of the bars except the Oat and Chocolate contain EnergySmart and 4g of Protein, perfect for a pre-run snack.

At the minute Frank bars are on special offer on Ocado, buy 4 get the 5th free. Look on their website to see their other stockists:
