Yes, I’ve gone meat free…

So I hadn’t planned to share this news. I’ve kind of hinted and mentioned it in passing on social media and over on my instagram feed I’ve been sharing as I stopped eating certain things but it’s slowly becoming more obvious and I’ve had to start to explain to people so I figured I may […]

Pamper yourself with Olverum

I’m a busy working mum, juggling a lot. I seem to spend an awful lot of time running around after everyone else and looking after me comes last. I’m pretty sure a lot, if not most mums, can relate and the theory that mum’s need to make sure they are looking after themselves so they […]

We’ve had snow here today. Much foretold and much anticipated. Much fuss made by the media and weather forecasters. Some parts of the country have had a fair dumping of the stuff.

Daily Snippet 15/02/18 – gone off sausages!

Rather weirdly of late, I’ve noticed I’ve gone off certain foods (nope, not pregnant, just for the record) and the thought of eating them, makes me feel nauseous. I’m not a big meat eater. I like a good steak every now and then, and enjoy a roast lamb lunch, but I can go without meat […]
