To All My Single Ladies on Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ve just spent the morning picking out old carrot chunks from the sink, which is a great metaphor for how I feel about this day really. A bit sick of it all. (It was the remnants of Ben’s red wine gravy he made last night in case you were...

BenQ e-Reading LED Desk Lamp – Review

As you know, I work from home and it has it’s good and bad points. This week is half term and it’s great that I’m able to be around for Dexter. And when I say around, I mean on standby for chef duties. And therein lies the rub, sometimes it’s quite hard to focus when...

A Dating Tale – Chef Freddo

I’ll be honest, dating in 2018 has been a rollercoaster … and it’s only February. I had one date with a guy who said, “There are three of us on today’s date,” and proceeded to take me to his car where I was convinced he was about to make lampshades out of my skin –...

Restaurant Review: Samphire in Whitstable

I mentioned in my January Life Update blog post that I’d taken my eldest, Ben, to a restaurant in Whitstable recently, so I thought it might be nice to do a review in case you’re ever in the area. Not sponsored, I just think it’s a lovely place to eat. The restaurant...

How I Saved £100 In One Month

I have this daily ritual. Every morning, one of the first things I do when I wake up is pick up my phone, look at my social media (I can’t be the only one that does that?), but then, and this is every ... single ... morning, I go onto my banking app and pray that...

A Life Update

Hi everyone, how are you? Wanted to touch base and just say hello really.  So hello.   My head has been in such a (sort of organised) jumble lately. I lost one of my clients, it just came to a natural end, so I've been frantically trying to secure more work to cover...

Why Losing 1lb Each Week Is A Good Thing

How’s everyone’s fitness journey going so far in 2018? I have a friend that’s running the London Marathon this year, who’s a big inspiration to me, but I’m still just plodding along at the gym, 3-4 times a week. My weight loss has dramatically slowed down, at least so...

Targeted Fat Reduction with ‘Silk’n Lipo

After losing four stones last year, and putting one stone back on recently, my weight loss journey is continuing in 2018, and I’ve had a fairly good start to the year. I will talk about what I’ve been doing in another post, but today I wanted to introduce you to a new...

Sexy Black Swimsuits For The Fuller Figure

I don’t have a summer holiday booked. Yet. It’s on my list of things to do … along with actually earning enough money to be able to afford said holiday. But even if Dexter and I just get to go away in the UK, as long as I get a break of some sort, I’ll be happy....

How I Motivate Myself To Exercise – My 6 Top Tips

I find it hard to get motivated to exercise at the best of times, and you may too. I know that once I’m at the gym (or doing whatever exercise I’m planning to do), I enjoy it. So why do I have to go through that whole rigmarole of huffing and puffing, moaning and...

My 2018 Personal Goals … And A Weight Loss Rant

I read a thread on Mumsnet last night (yes, I should know better) about a lady looking for plus size blogs to read, except, as per, it got a bit out of hand and became a bit fat-shamey. But it prompted me to write down a few thoughts about how I view the whole ‘New...

Can Men And Women Be ‘Just Friends’?

The question of whether men and women can be just friends is something I’ve asked myself time and time again over the years. I’ve always got on with men, but I like to think just as well as I get on with women. I don’t think I’m one of those women who only gets on...
