You’ll Never Walk Alone

“Walk on through the wind

Walk on through the rain

Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on

With hope in your heart

And you’ll never walk alone”

Liverpool Champions 2020

It’s been a busy few weeks in our household! There was our eldest’s primary school graduation, and end of Year 1 for M, a trip to North Devon and the glorious seaside, and, not to forget, my husband’s beloved football club winning the Premier League…

My eldest leaving primary school was bittersweet and I’m not going to lie, it was tough. Things were different and they’ve missed out on so much.

It still makes me cry just thinking about it.

But as the wonderful human being he is, he’s looking to the future and we’re all excited to see what his new adventures at secondary school will bring.

Our north Devon trip was amazing. I’ll have to do a separate post just to cover some of the stuff, but suffice to say, we loved it and we’ll be back next year.

Woolacombe Beach, North Devon

And on to Liverpool and finally, after 30 years winning the Premier League. The kids and I decided to surprise Brooks so we transformed our house into “Anfield”. We had red banners and balloons everywhere. J set up an Anfield snack bar, we sold tickets to the game and obviously we did some baking too.

We made these cute chocolate cupcakes which are a cinch to make with a simple yet tasty vanilla bean buttercream icing.

Recipe: (Goodfood website)

100g plain flour

20g good quality cocoa powder

140g caster sugar

1 ½ tsp baking powder

40g unsalted butter (at room temperature)

120ml whole milk

1 egg

¼ tsp vanilla extract

Take care and stay safe,

Love, Jess ❤️
