25th March – not a bad day.

Hey all, hope you are safe and well. My mum’s feeling worse tonight, high temperature again and feel very drained. Luckily no cough or breathing issues. As for me… my mouth is beginning to hurt quite a bit, I am going to have to go to boots tomorrow to pick up the things I need. …

6th Feb – a good food day and a lovely evening with our eldest niece

Hey all, hope you are well. Some good news! We are kid free this weekend! So my only commitment will be to pop round and have a cuppa with my friend, then see family for our nephew’s birthday for a couple of hours… YAY! Don’t you just love an expected bit of free time! Had …

Nutrition and Tight Budgets

There has probably been a time when we’ve all been there, we might like to eat healthily, but our choices are limited. Certainly here in the UK I’ve never seen fruit and veg, whether it’s fresh, tinned or frozen, on special offers. But guess what type of products are on special offer? Yep, you probably …

17th Oct 2019 – fantastic food and exercise day…

Let’s Talk – Portion Control!

Ok, so I do have a habit of over stuffing the plate! I can’t bear the thought of not serving up enough dinner, and this has led me to overfeeding myself and my family. In the ongoing efforts to improve myself I thought I really should look into portion control. I used the following website …

12th Aug 2019 – today is a struggle

I feel worn out, cold and was actually hungry for the first time in weeks this afternoon. This could be for any number or combination of reasons, the hour I simply couldn’t drop back off to sleep last night around 3ish, the hectic weekend, coming up to that time of the month, or my lack …
