Why I Travel

  Recently, I received various emails about Camp Bestival in Dorset – about the theme for this year, the acts signed up, the bloggers chosen to promote the festival. You may or may not remember that Dexter and I went to Camp Bestival several times during the past...

Slimming World – Week 17 Results

  It’s Bank Holiday weekend, yay! Except for me, who has to work today, boo! But all is not lost … it’s only for three hours, yay!   Etc.   Some of you may have seen the blog post I wrote yesterday about losing weight and self sabotage...

Losing Weight & Self Sabotage

  I started my new job this week and it’s going great. So much to learn but they are such a nice team to work with that it’s been a pleasure. Hard, but a pleasure. #saucy.   Anyway, I took a couple of hours off on Friday to meet a friend for...

Slimming World – Week 16 Results

  I hope you have all had a lovely weekend! Mine has mostly been at home (for a change) and it’s been nice just pottering about like the old lady I am – more of that later. I’ve caught up with writing blog posts, shopping and visiting Dad …...

Age – Does It Matter When Searching for Work?

  I am 45 years old. In fact, I’m nearer to 50 then 40. It’s never been an issue for me personally, but I’m telling you this because it’s really relevant to something interesting that happened this week.   (Also, how scary is that photo of...

Food & Flicks at The Royal Garden Hotel

  I have always had 5* lifestyle ambitions, just on a 3* budget! So imagine how excited I was when the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London invited Dexter and I to stay with them a couple of weeks ago to try out the new ‘Flicks & Food’ service. More about...

Secondary School – The First Year

    I’ve been following some of my friends’ social media updates today about whether their child got their first choice of primary school and it took me right back to my absolute panic when I thought Dexter hadn’t got into his (and my) first choice, my old...

Slimming World – Week 15 Results

  Well I’m back. The holiday blues haven’t quite caught up with me yet as I’ve just spent a lovely weekend in Oxford with my good friend Jen. We write a collaborative travel blog together, We Blog Travel, along with our friend Amanda, and it was...

Slimming World Beef Curry #liveslow

  It seems apt that I’m bringing you a new recipe today via a sunlounger in Lanzarote, as this healthy Beef Madras, suitable for Slimming world followers like me, is brought to you in conjunction with Simply Beef and Lamb as they wanted me to talk about the...

Slimming World – Week 14 Results

    This week’s Slimming World update is brought to you live via Lanzarote and I just thought it was important to document what was happening out here food-wise, rather than just skip a week. Having holidays and celebrations is part of life so I thought you...

A Weekend in Wiltshire

  My tour of the UK continued two weeks ago when Dexter and I headed off to Wiltshire for the weekend. It’s one of those counties that I think I may have passed through but I’ve never stayed to visit, so it was definitely time to remedy that.   It took...

Slimming World – Week 13 Results

  Time for my weekly slimming update so if this isn’t your cup of (sugar-free) tea, then that’s OK, we still friends. This was week 13 and it went a little like this.   So last weekend was Easter and surprisingly, I wasn’t particularly...

Mallorcan Dreams

  I’ve just been round to see my Dad, as I do most afternoons, and his cousin was there. She is the loveliest of ladies and even though I’m not quite sure what relation that makes her to me, I always like being in her company because she reminds me of...

EPSON EcoTank Printer | Review

    I’ve really enjoyed working from home for the past two years, even if it has sometimes meant I’ve had to invest in equipment that I would otherwise take for granted if I worked in a real-life office.  So today I want to talk printers with you. Bear with...
