Well… March was a blinking strange month wasn’t it! What a turn up for the books this one has been! Certainly a month I can’t wait to see the back of, and just for a change, I wish I could skip forward a few months! I’m sure I’m not alone in this feeling though so I won’t feel bad. My aims have been very hit and miss this month! Around the 20th of the month, when it became obvious that we would be staying home for the foreseeable my aims fell a little by the wayside, particularly as I have no childcare now! Anyway, here it is – my aims for March 2020 – the results!Continue reading
Good morning, Happy Monday! For most of us, we have made it through our first full week of being in isolation due to Covid-19. I’ve been home for over 2 weeks myself so far, and feel like I am settling in well to the idea that we can’t really go outside. I have a feeling this is going to stretch on much beyond the 3 weeks that the Government mentioned, but we will see. For now, we’re just focusing on enjoying our time at home together and Daisy is still unaware that we CAN’T go out! I’m really grateful for this.Continue reading
In our home, we LOVE a real hearty meal. Bacon mac and cheese pasta bake, chicken, spinach & filo pie and bolognese pasta bake are all hits with my family! Anything with lots of fillings, a rich sauce and cheese on the top hits that sweet spot for family mealtimes. This fish pie with leeks is a real Winter warmer, and a favourite of my daughters too. It is delicious served with butter potatoes, roasted vegetables or even just alone with a chunk of bread!Continue reading
Happy Friday, I hope your week has been well and you and your family are keeping well. I’m trying to be prepared in advance, but I haven’t stockpiled, so I’m hoping that I can get all of the ingredients that I need for my meals!
Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. I feel really sad if we have to throw something in the bin, thinking of both the environmental impact and the fact that other people struggle to afford food. I am always trying to take steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries.Continue reading
We were gifted the featured items in exchange for coverage. We moved house late last year and for the first time, we have a garden of our own. I’m so excited for all of the nice plans we have this Spring/Summer, even if we are now stuck at home for the foreseeable without access to workmen for any of the bigger jobs our garden needs! I feel super privileged to have outside space, after so many years of living in a flat on the 3rd floor. Our lovely Daisy is 4 now and wants to spend more time outside by the day. This year, for Easter, we’re going to be enjoying a little Easter Hunt in our garden thanks, in part, to some fun Baby Shark toys we’ve been sent! Available from Smyths and Argos.Continue reading
