Thank You to the Forgotten Key Workers




Steve has worked for the same telecommunications company for 15 years now (who I will be keeping confidential in this post so please don't ask who they are).

His company provides lots of benefits such as a good pension, flexible working, an employee share scheme, almost 8 weeks holiday, employee loans, monthly shopping vouchers, wine club, the opportunity to spend one paid day per year volunteering in the community, access to private health care, annual travel insurance for the family, the opportunity to donate some of your salary to a charity of your choice (which is matched) & more.

He is part of a fab team who have good crack and socialise together outside of work too.

The recipe really is super easy, pretty adaptable and takes no time at all. Plus your kitchen will smell of freshly baked cookies all afternoon. What's not to love?

Easy Easter Mini Cheesecakes Recipe


Easy Easter Mini Cheesecakes Recipe

This is a super easy baked cheesecake recipe that can be adapted to include different toppings. I like that it produces individual cheesecakes which are much easier to store / divide between the family. You can pop them in lunch boxes too.

A few people have asked for a list of local restaurants offering delivery at the moment. I have limited the list to Northumberland and North Tyneside for now as I needed to make a cut off somewhere  - hopefully other bloggers can cover other areas of the North East too.
