Each month I set myself a goal to lose 4 lbs, which equates at a lb a week, give or take. I know that eating healthily is important, and maintaining a healthy weight is important, but I sometimes struggle to eat the best I can. I read a lot of cookery blogs and healthy eating …
I have been off work this week and what a difference it makes to morale. Knowing that I don’t have to get up at 6:45am every morning and make my way to work for the day is such a good feeling; I like my job but it’s hard going at times so I’m glad of …
Hello November! November and December are my favourite months of the year, as the nights draw in and I can get away with wearing big chunky jumpers and slipper socks. Our bathroom renovation got postponed in October, but is due to start November 17th, so I’m looking forward to having that completed this month. It’ll …
Another month is over and we creep ever closer towards Christmas and the holidays. October has been reasonably good to us, though perhaps not as good as it could have been finance-wise. It was our car’s MOT ¬†this month, and whilst it was lower than it could have been, it still cost us ¬£370 to …

Another week has gone by, almost as fast as the last one. Work has been particularly busy tis week so I’m glad it is the weekend. I’ve found my shoulder to be quite achey this week and I’ve struggled doing some things, so it was been a bit testing at times. I don’t think it’s …
I hadn’t even heard of tea loaf before I met my (now) husband, but it gets made quite often in our house now. It is a simple recipe with doesn’t contain any fat at all so it would be good as a low fat pudding. There is quite a bit of sugar though!   Ingredients: …
As someone who has a lot of goals in life, I have pretty high expectations of myself. I want to get things done, I want to do them well and I want to be as efficient as possible.   Humans beings naturally want to do well. We crave praise, deep down, so that we know …
This week has been much better; my arm is out of the sling and I can do more around the house and at work. I will still need to be very careful for a while – it’ll take 6 weeks for it to heal completely so I just need to remember not to do too …
Although I love cooking, I’m also a big fan of easy, quick cooking. Because, at the end of a long working day, I just don’t have the energy or patience to trawl through a complicated recipe that takes a lot of time. I save those for the weekend where I can take my time and …
