My Weight Loss Journey With BodyChef – Update 2

It’s been a while since I updated you last on my weight loss journey. Life sort of got in the way, I took a few breaks in the BodyChef diet plan due to press trips and keeping up with these got a bit confusing. In this update I wanted to share exactly what a diet delivery plan looks like each …

IOW 2017 Day 3 – Model Village, Tapnell Farm & The Cow Co.

I woke up earlier than the day before. I decided to have a shower and whilst I was half way through shaving my legs, the fire alarm went off. This woke Hubby is a shock and he leaped out of bed to press the button. He ended up pressing it about ten times but it kept coming back on. So …

Our First Experience Of Glamping At Chalke Valley Camping

This summer Hubby put a budget away so that we could go on some mini breaks. It was so exciting to have the chance to pick pretty much anywhere. Hubby randomly decided that Glamping would be a fun idea and found availability at Chalke Valley Camping in Salisbury and so we booked to stay for two nights. Unfortunately the journey …

I recently wrote about my lack of body confidence and positivity. I posted a photo of myself on social media and had a lovely response. Most people did the usual “you look amazing” stuff and a few people actually understood what I was trying to get across. The thing is I am not stupid, I am definitely not overweight to …

Hazelnut chocolate spread has become a firm favourite in this family. The girls love to have it in a sandwich or on toast every morning. It is literally the only thing I can get them all to eat. There was a big uproar about the leading brand of hazelnut chocolate spread and it honestly shocked me, yet I didn’t really …

Ella’s Kitchen The Easy Family Cookbook Challenge

My girls are becoming increasingly interested in cooking. I recently taught them how to toast their own crumpets and it was lovely to see their proud faces when they did it all by themselves (with assistance obviously). We were recently asked by Ella’s Kitchen to take part in a cooking challenge with the girls using their brand new cooking book named the …

But when I saw these really cute Snowman and Santa fruit figures on Pinterest and generally circulating the internet in the lead up to Christmas, I instantly knew that this would be something P2 …

It definitely feels like Annabel Karmel has been by my side throughout my parenting journey. Right from the very beginning of teaching my first born to eat real food, Annabel was there with her handy weaning books for advice, recipes and tricks.

Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes Recipes

I have gone a little Baking crazy recently and I think P2 has cottoned on to this too. She asks me frequently if we can bake, it’s usually at the most inconvenient time but she’s getting really good at baking. I spotted some cute little Halloween cupcake decorations in Poundland the other day and instantly knew that P2 would love …

School holidays when you are a work at home mum is all about balancing everything. I’ve struggled in the first few days to accept the fact I’m getting a million demands in one hour let alone the full day! One particular day had been pretty darn stressful, we’d had yet more bad news for the car and panic set in …

Bernard Matthews Stir Fry-Days

I am very excited to announce that I am on the Bernard Matthews Family Panel for a second year running. We really enjoyed all the challenges last year so it wasn’t a hard decision to take part again. This year we are kicking off with a Stir-Fry challenge. We actually have never had a stir-fry at home which is really ridiculous considering …

Valentines Jam Heart Biscuits

I used to hate Valentine’s Day. I felt it was very commercialised and a date in the diary specifically for people to make money from. Surely if you love someone you should be showing them that each day, not just one day out of 365. But then I joined the blogging world and this year I’m making an effort to …
