October Round Up

In September our travel plans started up for the year… well except for this month. It’s still been an interesting month tho… The shop I work in has closed for a few weeks for refurbishment and for holidays however the way it’s fallen means I have 38 days straight off work. 15 of those days…

What I Eat in a Day – Friday at Work

I’ve been asked a few times what I eat in a day so here it is. If you follow my Instagram or Facebook pretty much everything I post can look intimidating for people starting out or people who don’t cook… at least that’s what I’ve been told anyway. This is to show that everything I…

Project Clear Out – Week 1

August Round Up

Compared to July how has August been…. lets take a look Intention 1 – Improve my physical health.

Cupboard Clear Out – September Plan

I keep posting about clearing out my kitchen cupboards as I’m a terrible food hoarder and I need to thin things out to make more space. I’ve been able to do this everywhere else in the house with my clothes, shoes, books etc but food stuff I use rarely/has been forgotten is slowly being used…
