My weekend has mainly been spent…

Sleeping in. Heading downstairs for a cup of tea. Discovering Mr L.A. curled up on the sofa with Jesse. Thanking them both for my lovely lie-in. Eating a bowl of summer berries and vanilla yogurt for breakfast. Watching Moana. Again. Nope, not bored yet. Coaxing the...

My {bank holiday} weekend has mainly been spent…

Waking up at Bowood Hotel after my cousin Sophie's wedding on the Friday. We were in an incredibly luxurious suite and everything about our stay was perfect. Gasping for a cup of tea. Waiting for the children to stir. Smiling when they finally piled into bed with us....

Oven-Baked Asparagus and Eggs

Oven-Baked Asparagus and Eggs

Calling this a 'recipe' seems a little over the top. It's more of an assembly job really, a gentle nudge towards a delicious meal made using simple, no-nonsense ingredients. Running from the end of April until June, I look forward to the British asparagus season all...

Sleeping in. Waking up slowly with a cup of tea on the sofa. Grabbing a quick shower. Catching up on some housework. Vowing to make the most of our final day without the kids. Treating ourselves to brunch at The Lock Up. Very much enjoying my eggs hollandaise with...

My {Easter} weekend has mainly been spent…

Sleeping in. We've been on a roll with 7.30 and 8am wake-ups during the Easter holidays. Long may it continue! Heading downstairs for a cup of tea. Relaxing on the sofa while Mr L.A. made breakfast. Eating a fried egg sandwich and making plans for the day. Jumping in...

Current Obsessions {Spring}

Current Obsessions {Spring}

I've always lacked the commitment and consistency required for documenting monthly favourites. To be honest, I don't buy or try new things often enough to keep that kind of content interesting anyway. Somehow a seasonal approach seems more achievable, so going forward...

Waking up when Jesse wandered into our bedroom. Snuggling beneath the duvet with him. Missing Mr L.A. Creeping downstairs to watch Moana. Laughing out loud as Izzy came dancing into the front room. We're all very into the film's soundtrack! Sipping tea. Fixing...

Sleeping in. British Summer Time means Jesse is finally staying in bed later than 6am. Heading downstairs for a cup of tea. Reflecting on the fact exactly one year has passed since I was admitted to hospital with a combination of flu and a bacterial infection....

Waking up before the children. Chatting to Mr L.A. in bed. Letting Jesse climb in for a cuddle. Waking Izzy. She had to be up early for a Guiding event. Heading downstairs for a cup of tea. Curling up on the sofa. Seeing Izzy off at the door. Sending Mr L.A. out to...

The Gifts My Mother Gave Me

The Gifts My Mother Gave Me

As part of their #MyGiftToHer Mother's Day campaign, the wonderful team at Christy recently treated me and my mum to a gorgeous box of goodies. As well as a bottle of bubbly and a pretty Bloom & Wild bouquet, they sent me a luxury bath robe complete with my very own...

Ginger Biscuit and Lemon Cream Pie

Ginger Biscuit and Lemon Cream Pie

At the beginning of February, celebrated food writer Diana Henry put a call out on twitter. 'RECIPES FROM YOUR MOTHER,' she announced in bold capitals. 'Looking for people who have handwritten recipes - from their mother or grandmother - which they cherish.' 'I do!' I...

Waking up when Jesse came stumbling into our bedroom. Feeling sleepy. Dragging myself downstairs for a cup of tea. Missing Izzy. She spent Friday night and most of Saturday with friends. Jumping in the shower and getting ready to face the day. Heading into town for...

Waking up to find myself alone in bed. God bless Mr L.A. for letting me sleep in. Heading downstairs to join the others on the sofa. Sipping tea while Mr L.A. made us all a cooked breakfast. Tucking into fried eggs, baked beans and hash browns. Smiling at Jesse's...

My Everyday Makeup Essentials

My Everyday Makeup Essentials

Every time I use Instagram Stories to talk to the lovely people in my phone, I find myself answering a flurry of questions about my makeup. No one is more surprised by this than me! The beauty obsession that once spawned this very blog diminished long ago. I still...

My weekend has mainly been spent…

Waking up when Jesse clambered into bed beside us. Drifting off to sleep again. Heading downstairs for a cup of tea. Lounging on the sofa while the children watched a movie. Prepping food for a lunch party with our pals. I made Butternut Squash and Sweet Leek Lasagna...

Mexican Black Beans with Nachos

Mexican Black Beans with Nachos

In 2017, I plan to post at least one recipe a month here on Love Audrey. Having kicked things off with a colourful pasta dish in January, I'm sneaking this in a few days late. Tardiness aside, I'm enjoying the rhythm of cooking, styling, shooting and sharing more food...

Born Again Vegetarian

Born Again Vegetarian

Vegetarian Ingénue I first became a vegetarian when I was 11 years old. A fully paid-up member of the Junior RSPCA, I identified as an 'animal lover' and begged my mum to let me give up eating meat. She was reluctant at first. Wary of complicating mealtimes and...

Waking up in a daze when Jesse wandered into our room at 5.20am. Sending him back to bed. Dozing off. Waking up again around 7am. Creeping downstairs to avoid waking our guests. Mr L.A.'s best friend and his partner had arrived from Leamington on Friday night. Sipping...

My weekend has mainly been spent…

Waking up after very little sleep. If you caught my Instagram Story on Friday evening, you'll know Izzy had a few friends over to celebrate her birthday. They were good as gold, but I don't think they fell asleep until almost 2am. Fixing breakfast for everyone. Warm...
