The Castle at the End of the High Street

Apologies for the lack of posting recently, I’ve been busy with work. I’m not going to lie, Harry Potter really oversold the magical qualities of September in the British education system…  As we’ve missed most of this month, I thought I would take a different route, and write about the RunDisney Disneyland Paris event I’veContinue reading “The Castle at the End of the High Street”

My Thoughts on Disney’s Peter Pan (1953)

Jessie and Buzz Lightyear Cookies

For today’s snack post, I made some Toy Story themed sugar cookies! These were a bit of a challenge, as I am not the greatest in the decorating department!  I started with a basic sugar cookie recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. This was a really great recipe that I would definitely use again, very easyContinue reading “Jessie and Buzz Lightyear Cookies”
