Hello November and welcome to my Blog, It's officially the penultimate month of, what has felt like, the fastest passing year of my life. November is a month with lots of reasons to celebrate. It's already been World Vegan Day, National Candy Day, Hug a Bear Day and we still have Homemade Bread Day, World Kindness Day, Cook Something Bold Day.

What else says winter if it's not a warm, sticky, sweet pudding?! Hands up if you love bread and butter pudding? What does it remind you of? For me it's school lunches, which I loved at primary school, when I wasn't eating peanut butter and jam sandwiches in a packed lunch. I always chose to have seconds of pudding when I had school lunches, with lashings of custard obviously. I was recently asked to review some delicious, healthy treats made by a company called My Raw Joy, based in Prague. As...

Well hello my friends, Here we are in another new month... wow wow wow.. How did it get to October and the leaves are turning brown and falling down?!! This month's blog post is all about weaning. This isn't something i've shared much about on here, partly because I don't feel qualified to do so and partly because I'm not sure if it 's of interest. However, as this space has always been partly journal, part connecting and sharing, I've decided I want to talk about our weaning journey. Maybe...

Hello and welcome to September's Blog post. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and read my musings. As it's officially autumn here in Scotland I thought I'd talk about my all time favourite spice... Cinnamon. It's something I've loved ever since I was a child. I think it started with the sweet cinnamon toast crunch cereal I used to scoff down before school. I LOVED this stuff as a kid and the taste has stayed with me ever since. I add cinnamon to everything now (savoury and sweet)....

Today I am sharing something a bit different because it's my first review on the Blog. I've been thinking about this product for a while after doing research into plant-based probiotic drinks whilst I was pregnant. This was when I first came across Biomel . I am not a qualified healthcare professional and sharing my own experience, so please check with your health care provider if you're unsure if probiotics could be beneficial for you. What are probiotics? Probiotics are beneficial bacteria...

I can not believe we are on the first day of August. I am sure I say this every month but where has the last month gone? We are over half way through the year already. Today I wanted to talk about being in a 'funk' and I don't mean the groovy type. What I'm referring to is the general malaise, lack of enthusiasm or moodiness we are all prone to from time to time. Being in a funk and getting out of it can be tricky to achieve. Sometimes we don't even realise we are in one. We may feel...

Last Sunday was a milestone for me as I ran my first 10K race since having my baby girl in December. I didn't have a fixed date in mind for my first run before I gave birth and I wasn't set on a specific race, other than a marathon in 2019. I wasn't sure how my recovery would be or how my baby would be and I didn't want to put pressure on myself. When I signed up for a marathon I looked for the furthest away date I could in 2019. I wanted to leave myself at least 6 months post baby before I...

With family.... I have always loved and preferred city breaks to relaxing holidays where you lie on the beach or at the pool. This is partly because I love history and exploring and also because I get flustered in the heat and I have ants in my pants! When my husband added a Barcelona game at Neu Camp to his 40th year bucket list I was more than a little bit excited and it wasn't because of the football!! We knew we'd have a second munchkin in tow when we booked the trip and I was a little...

When it comes to my son and food, the question I ask myself most is whether he is getting enough fresh fruit & vegetables?! Am I being creative enough with our dinners? More often than not the answer is no and I feel guilty for a while and then try and come up with new recipes & ideas. I imagine many parents are in a similar situation. Convincing children to eat vegetables can be a huge challenge and some days you have to pick your battles, right??! I've come up with a few tried and...

Good morning everyone, It's been a whirlwind 8 weeks and I can't believe we are coming to the end of February. Being a mum for the second time I've learned a lot in 8 weeks and in particular, how quickly time passes and how easy it is to forget about yourself and focus all your energy on your new baby. There have been days when I've been glued to the sofa breastfeeding and struggled to find time for cooking any sort of meals. I've learned to be more resourceful, make sure I am organised, stock...
