I don’t know if it is just me, but 2014 has gone by fast. Like, really fast. A “blink and you’ve missed it’ fast. All of those new year’s resolutions that we made at the start of the year are probably languishing in a corner somewhere, forgotten and lost. A new set of promises are …
It is definitely nearing Christmas now; the weather has got much cooler and I have had to defrost my windscreen more than once this week! Most of our evenings have been spent sat on the sofa, cuddled up and watching a film. We’ve finally got round to watching the start of Breaking Bad to see …
Now is the time start thinking about the year ahead; what kind of things do you wish to accomplish in the upcoming year and what things are you aware that you struggle with that you want to try and get sorted. I know for a fact, that snacking in between meals is going to be …
As someone who regularly reads the news, it comes as no surprise that in the UK, the rise in the need for food banks is rising. The more people are using, the more important they become to those in need. There has been a few articles recently that have caught my attention, such as this …

Hello December! I absolutely love December; it’s my birthday and my husband’s birthday during the month, plus of course the holidays and spending time with family. I cannot think of a better time of year, to be honest. Work wise, December is a busy month as we get everything finished for the end of year, but …
Another month is over! I’ll be honest, November has not been the best month for us. We’ve had a lot of unexpected expenses (mainly the car and some house things) and work has not been fantastic over the last couple of weeks as the pressure grows as we get nearer and nearer to Christmas.   …
A little tweak on an old favourite, this is a perfect biscuit for the festive season. Pair these with a cup of tea, a Christmas film and some candles, and you can’t go wrong!   I love shortbread. In fact, I actually have to restrain myself from eating the whole tray, especially when they’re still …
