Dust With Cocoa

I was very excited when there was a knock on the door Friday, it wasn't the postman it was a delivery of 'Posh Brownies' by Dust with Cocoa. What a treat! I couldn't wait to open them, I could already smell how delicious they were through the box. I was't disappointed with how they looked either, two senses nailed...now for the taste...DELICIOUS! My kids agreed they were top notch brownies as they each devoured one in a matter of minutes. Dust With Cocoa not only deliver edible parcels but they make some of the most fantastical wedding cakes I have ever seen, so romantic and down to earth, I've added a few pics below but there are many many more on the website for you to lust over, you can see the passion for baking oozing out of these cakes like the frosting...oh, sorry have I made you peckish?!

all photos from DWC just because they're so beautiful.


Attik and Seller

You know what, I'm quite slow and only recently got the attic and cellar twist in the name..I know I know, sometimes I wonder how I've survived this long! Anyway, something I hope survives a long time is this glorious husband and wife team that is Attik and Seller. These hard working couple do house clearances and home staging as Attik Property Services, as well as having an amazing barn shop near Dereham in which they sell beautiful vintage and retro clothes, furniture and home wares. These guys really have a keen eye for style and that shows in their shop and staging, I bet it feels good to see a house sell after you've worked your magic. You can follow them on instagram to keep up to to date with whats in stock at the shop. The barn is open 10-5 on Wednesdays but you can make an appointment at another time if you spot something you simply need right now, they are very accommodating and charming people who would be happy to help!

Chihuahua Burritos

Fancy a real taste of Mexico? Course ya do, and so do I. Chihuahua Burritos has found itself a permanent home at The Mash Tun on St.Benedicts Street. I went to give the tacos a try and my word what a treat for the taste buds. Freshly made salsa, cubes of roasted sweet potato and crumbly feta lay on top of a beautiful freshly made soft blue corn flour taco. I also tried the smoked paprika chips and they are I can confirm they are best things ever, especially with the made in house ketchup, the slaw is also to die for.
You can order through Deliveroo and eat in the comfort of your own pyjamas...I mean home, or enjoy the beautiful Mash Tun pub with friends and a beer.
I've actually just finished painting a Mexican inspired mural for the lovely Chihuahua guys, I took my time as I got to eat more and more food hehe, hope you like it!

The Cat Lady

Anyone who has met us will know that we LOVE animals, and being pet owners means we have been in the position of having to leave our pets whilst we go on holiday and perhaps arranging someone to nip in during the day if we are having a long day away from home. 

I caught up with Kylie (The Cat Lady) who is part of The Norwich Lanes family to see what she was all about... 

 So I cover Norwich and the sourrounding areas - the world (or should I say Norfolk) is my oyster really. I service NR1-NR8 inclusive of petrol charges, but outside of NR8 I add on 20p per mile for travel. I am happy to travel further but this all depends on client need. My main service is pet sitting - not just cats, I also have dogs, rabbits, fish, chickens and reptiles on my books, and I have experience with horses from a young age. I visit the client's home and care for their animals when they are away on holiday, when they have to go away for work or when they simply can't be there for a different reason. I will do things such as feeding, watering, clearing out pet areas, administering medicines and exercising them where necessary, generally giving them some normality while their owners are away.

I also offer a pet taxi service, which is designed to help owners who don't drive get to the vets or suchlike.

My newest service is a pet clean-up service which sees me visiting clients home while they are at work to keep on top of the household cleaning jobs that they find hard to juggle around day to day life. 

All my visits are charged per hour and I spend a full hour with the animals (unless stated otherwise by the client).  

I am fully insured and am qualified in Feline and Canine First Aid, Animal Training and Pet Business.
