This week has been full of excitement after 3 weeks full of nose to the grindstone work doing a side gig. First of all it was our little one’s 2nd birthday! We all had the day off from our usual work/nursery situation and spent most of the day together at a local ice cream farm

Greek lamb and feta puff pastry pizza

To quote Hannibal from the A-Team, “I love it when a plan comes together”! I wrote a while ago about being stuck in a cooking rut, and 3 months later, it seems as if I’ve found myself in a similar situation — relying on the same old standards and being a bit on auto-pilot. This

This week has seen the hubby successfully bike from Leeds to his work for charity, a 80 mile trip. We’re all so relieved that it went very well, no issues with his blood sugar levels and the only souvenir he got from the trip (aside from the memories, of course), is a minor scabbed knee

What stunning weather we’re having this May Bank Holiday weekend, such a rare treat for the weather to actually be consistently beautiful for the 3 days in their entirety!

My hormone journey: Vitamin D

So I wrote a while ago about my doctor’s appointment that I had all the way back in the middle of March¬†¬†about issues that I have been having related to my hormones. What I keep forgetting to do is update you on the results of those blood tests! In the beginning of April, I had

How to deal when you’ve had no sleep

We’ve just one of those weeks where all 3 of us are exhausted, but we just keep pushing on. Hubby is training for a charity bike ride via work, but since those who have arranged it are shockingly disorganized, he still has no details aside from the day and that they’re biking 80ish miles from

Another week done, and more ice cream consumed! This time, it was homemade. We received an ice cream maker from my mom last year and it has been sitting in the cupboard for ages… until yesterday! I just about remembered to freeze the inner bowl for the 24 hours required after several days of warm

Ice cream!!! Yes, this is the kiddo’s first ever ice cream cone all for him. We took advantage of the beautifully sunny weather by playing outside all day at our friends’ house up near Manchester. It was such a great day. The kids all had a great time playing together. I genuinely think it was
