Your top five guilty pleasures

  1. Peanut butter – in anything, straight out of the jar, but especially on toast with some jam!
  2. Long, hot bath, candles burning, book in hand = bliss.
  3. Reading in the daytime – with a house to run, blog & shop to run, 3 children to look after & educate – I always have something I should be doing. Reading in the daytime feels very naughty – but very nice!
  4. Turkish delight – preferably Fry’s chocolate covered one.
  5. Sloe gin – perfect drink to relax in an evening with.
