About

Welcome to my blog! I'm a chocolate scoffing, wine quaffing tea addict with a penchant for baking! Originally a Brighton girl, now living in Gibraltar with my gorgeous husband and baby girl. I was called Polly Dolly Day Dreamer as a child and I'm still the World's greatest procrastinator which is pretty much how this blog came about! I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it. Love Polly x

Arty McGoo has been up to her usual wizardry and made some absolutely sensational Halloween cookies which she recently shared on her […]
