One fun weekend

This weekend we hung out around Brum with some of our favourite people. A staycation of sort. We ate a feast, toured Digbeth (made bread and movies at the Flatpack Festival) and paraded with a donkey through Walmley to kick-off the Easter celebrations. We even entered a quiz and didn't loose.

Rosa Cookery School

We've said it before and we'll say it again: this place tastes good.

This is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday with friends. A special, tasty treat that's not entirely alcohol-free.



Thank you for letting me hang out with your lovely family, and go for fresh stroll with you. 
But most of all thank you for sleeping like a baby.
-Nom x


Rosa Cookery School

Oh Boy do we love our job! 
We had the immense pleasure of a sneak preview taster day at the brand-new Rosa Cookery School, (in Sutton Coldfield, just down the road from us). We snapped away while Adele guided her pupils through baking bread and making pasta. 

And we got to taste-test all of it.

We've got to mention (because we think its a crazy good deal) Rosa Cookery School are putting on special Italian Christmas Cookery Evening- if you're local check it out. It's a bargain at just £20, you'll get to make some, try some and take some home. More info & bookings here.

Erdington Foodbank Launch

Yesterday was the official launch of our Erdington Foodbank, we held a little gathering of our supporters, partners and volunteers. But the most important thing happened before the notorieties arrived. We gave out food for nearly 30 people, to help them through the next week. You can see a few photos of of the real business of foodbank below. 

And if you'd like to make a contribution, find our how HERE.  

What really goes on at Foodbank? 
Volunteers receive food donations, scan and store them. They greet people attending with a hot drink and slice of home made cake, then ask about food preferences and then prepare a bag with a weeks worth of food for their household. They add in treats and toiletries. And they offer a listening ear.


Envision- Photo Booth

Malc had the pleasure of watching the Envision Best of Brum graduation last week. Here are some of our favourite results from the photo booth. 
(If you were at the even you can find all of the photos on our Facebook page)

Tommy & Leo: Christening

Excited to be able to share these photos we took at a christening a little while back. The twins got christened on their first birthday and threw a big party for friends and family. Double the cuteness, double the fun. And a little shout out to Alexa, the boys' very stylish big sister.

The service took place at St Mary of the Angels, Aldridge and then we moved on to Great Barr Golf Club.
