Two words: Jammie Dodgers. Who doesn’t love a Jammie Dodger. For me it conjurs up images of childhood birthday parties, with their sweet, shiny heart in the centre and that famous layer of sticky and delicious jam.

Whether you love or loathe it, there is no escaping it and I find it is much better to embrace the madness and go with the flow at this time of year. The boys are… Read More Review: Santa’s Grotto at Wyevale Garden Centre
