Not for any particular special occasion, just because I felt like doing something special and getting all my nice china out. I have a beautiful Cath Kidston provence rose design tea set that I won many years ago. It was my second ever comp win! But I’ve never got round to using it before, and…

A few weeks ago I booked a day off work and my parents and myself drove to Ely in Cambridgeshire for a little day out. We seem to spend a lot of our family days out here, as I love hunting in the numerous charity shops on the high street, browsing the huge antique store, and stopping for some tea at the stunning cathedral.

Alpro is a yogurt alternative full of soya, and it’s great poured onto fruit and cereal or in shakes and smoothies. It’s a source of healthy protein, calcium and vitamins, and it is lactose and dairy free. The three flavours of Alpro yogurt I got to try out were strawberry with rhubarb, vanilla, and simply plain. They also do a lemon on lime…
