Weekend Wonderings

This is a video that shows as much about the person watching it as it does about those on camera. 20 strangers were asked to kiss for the first time.  The result is awkward, glorious and heartwarming, all at the same time. It shows that all human need to break the ice is physical contact [...]

Our question to you is – what advice would you give the next generation of AOWers, on being a woman?     Email [...]

When you’re up at insane times in the night with a one-month-old, you have a lot of time to read.  My brain can’t handle a whole book yet (concentration is hijacked by thoughts such as “is she still breathing?“, “where is the nearest carbohydrate?” and “will I ever be able to finish a cup of [...]

When I first heard of this project I was a bit sceptical, it seemed a bit self-involved, and perhaps a bit smug and show-offy. I will hold my hand up and admit… I was wrong. It is, in fact, supremely lovely. I’m sure some people do use it to show-off, but for me it’s not [...]

This weekend features a return to chocolate from me. I’d apologise but…. I’m not sorry. I will never apologise for chocolate. Not even when I have pie filling smeared in my hair. Which has totally never happened. *ahem* Anyway, this all started when our new table arrived last week and I decided we should christen it with a [...]

AOW-ettes, this is the best chocolate cake recipe in the world. You’re welcome. The recipe originally comes from an Usborne Children’s cookery book I had when I was just a wee bouncy thing, and I used to sit at the oven door, licking a spoon, watching my cake rise in the oven. The page that [...]

Happy Weekend, one and all! Short and sweet (or savoury?) today, a blinder of a recipe that I tried recently in preparation for Stella’s first birthday party. Which, in case you were wondering, I am raging denial about. But that’s another post. So. Bacon and cheese scones. Perfect for breakfast, too, I suspect? Recipe from [...]

Seeing as I don’t spend a whole lot of time perusing the UK papers, I may be way behind the time here, but I just found this series in the Guardian, and subsequently lost several hours reading through the previous letters. The basic premise is a letter you always wanted to write to an important [...]

Happy Saturday, one and all! Mr K sent this father-daughter photo series to Aisling and I over the festive season.  Obviously we were both in bits; because, sadly, that’s what we do (he knows his audience).  I couldn’t not share it with you.  January can be a tough month; this will remind you what other people go through, [...]
