Slimming World Pulled Pork

  Now I’m into my fifth week of following Slimming World at home, it’s become clear I have my favourite recipes I keep returning to, time and time again. Time will tell whether this adversely affects my weight loss, but whilst I’m still losing weight, I say TO HELL WITH IT … I WILL HAVE […]

Slimming World – Week 4 Results

    Time for a Slimming World update – and I’ve just completed Week 4. It’s been a funny old week. Dad has gone downhill somewhat and has been in hospital  for a few days and as much as I remain positive around him (you have to don’t you?), it’s been awfully stressful. Coupled with […]

Ox Pasture Hall, Yorkshire – Review

    We were invited to stay at the Ox Pasture Hall hotel in Scarborough and it fit perfectly in with our Great Northern Adventure, which you can hear about here, here and here.  We have never been to Yorkshire before and Scarborough is to the North East of Leeds.  I think.  I never was […]
