Macaroni Cheese is one of those comfort foods that, when I’m feeling blah or just uninspired in the kitchen, I know I can make and I know I’ll enjoy. I have a number of go to recipes but this is the easiest to make and, nine times out of ten, I have all the ingredients in the cupboards so it’s also stress and shopping free. Continue reading
Mount Grace Priory, which is just outside Osmotherley in North Yorkshire, is one of those places I must have driven by a hundred times before deciding to finally visit (only to realise I’ve been missing out all these years). Continue reading
Over the last six months, after never having used any Skin Chemists products before, I’ve become a bit of a fan. After starting with their Whitening & Lightening Nourishing Facial Oil, I moved onto the Pro-5 Collagen Bee Venom Day Moisturiser (my favourite so far).

I wrote a while ago about the benefits of breakfast and how I had started to try and mix up my breakfast routine. That included making smoothies, my favourite of which was a chocolate peanut butter one. Recently, it’s had competition in a raspberry and banana smoothie that seems to go with the lighter mornings and sunshine that (occasionally) comes through the kitchen window. It feels fresher than the chocolate and peanut butter smoothie and – dare I say it – a little bit healthier. Continue reading
I first came across this post on Natalie the Explorer’s blog and thought it was great. She, and some other bloggers, share their month in a sentence a day. I thought it would be fun to join in, though I’m not that good at limiting my days to just one sentence. It’s good to look back at what I’ve been up to and makes me feel grateful for the good in my life. So, without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to. Continue reading
