It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Green Haus Plant Shop and Ottar Chocolate. I’ve been a regular visitor to their pop-ups across Nottingham and have featured both of them on the blog quite a bit.

We’ve been barbequing since the first rays of spring sun hit Notts’ streets this year. No joke. I remember back in March dragging one of my best lamps outside because we had misjudged how long the days were and were barbequing in the dark.

It’s not Notts, but this is too good not to share with you and if you bear with me you’ll see how it links in with Notts, so we’re all good right?
