How much am I loving the grizzly grey weather? It really is my favourite time of year! This weekend Mr Polka and I plan to do a bit of a cook up for the months ahead, the pasta sauce we make is one of my favourites and such a staple for us and I kind of love nothing more than staying in the warmth with good music and amazing smells! We have a few very special Polka Dot exclusive offers in this roundup, so make sure you read to the end!

While it’s cold and grey, let us round up the week that was!
