Shows I’ve been loving on Netflix this month

My likes and loves - Netflix

Netflix: Kim’s Convenience Season 3

I have really enjoyed the first 2 series of this show and was surprised to see series 3 on there so fast! Maybe time just goes quickly?! Anyway, I did enjoy this series, but it wasn’t the best. I felt like the storylines were being stretched out for longer, and a little less interesting. Hopefully, season 4 will be better!

Netflix: Jailbirds

Seeing what the American prison system is like has been eye-opening. I really enjoyed this show, despite it having quite a sad undertone to it. The final episode was particularly sad for me, seeing what people do to one another, even when they are family. This is a show I would firmly recommend you watch, as I found it an eye-opener! Did you know that people in prisons sometimes communicate via the toilet?! Very strange!

Netflix: Girls Incarcerated

Another prison show, this time showing young offenders. I was quite surprised by some of the things that they can do while in prison. Also, it was really sad to see one person who had to stay in prison, after her sentence was complete because she didn’t have any family to return back to.

Recipe: Slow cooker vegetarian lasagne

The finished Slow cooker vegetarian lasagne recipe

This recipe is super simple, easy to adapt and tastes great too. I love slow cooker dinners as they make life really easy for me. In the late afternoon, whenever we have time to sit down and eat, we can do so. It doesn’t matter if Thomas is on night shifts, day shifts or a day off. We can fit in having a meal together before Daisy gets home from Nursery on those days or eat together if she’s home.

Podcast: Sh*gged married annoyed

The headphones were gifted to me in exchange for coverage last year and I use them frequently with my phone.

2018 Christmas Gift Guide for Parents - Jam headphones

I love listening to a podcast or watching a YouTube video while I am cleaning or cooking in the kitchen. Recently I have discovered the sh*gged married annoyed podcast from Chris & Rosie Ramsey. It’s a great escape and I can just pop in some headphones and get on with jobs that need doing. I’ve found this really funny so far and I’ve been enjoying the episodes from the beginning. I’ll be sad once I’m caught up and have to wait for new episodes!

Recipe: Slow cooker chicken & prawn paella

The Slow cooker chicken and prawn paella with chorizo added

This is another delicious slow cooker recipe that we have been loving this month. We’ve had it twice in May already and I love it. It’s so easy to add cold meats from the fridge and the prawns are frozen, so there is no waste.

#Event: The Crystal Maze Experience

Likes and Loves May 2019 - Crystal Maze Experience

In late April I visited the #Crystal Maze experience with some fantastic blogging friends. It was so much fun and I’m glad my lovely friend Donna invited me! I’ve linked Donna’s review above as it sums up the fun vibe of the evening perfectly!

Recipe: Gluten-free jam drops (AD) [DF, SF, GF]

Gluten-free jam drops AllergyFreeDay

There super simple gluten-free jam drops have been a big hit at home. It can be really hard to find gluten-free recipes that are also free of dairy, soya and coconut. Daisy absolutely loved these! I didn’t tell her I made them before she tried them (and she’s too young to know they don’t look processed!) and she ate one and told me it was delicious!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Likes and Loves for May 2019. I’m really enjoying this regular feature and getting to share more of the smaller aspects of my life with you!

If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!

    Great memories of the things you’ve enjoyed. I like thst idea. We also had a meetup with other bloggers too. It’s nice to meet people in person to put a face to the names we see or even speak to on the Internet.
