08/04/21 – Decanting time

Our latest GoodClub order arrived today. It’s a zero waste service we’ve been using. You get things delivered in tubs, decant them out and then return all the tubs and packaging. I do it because it’s great for the environment, but I do also super enjoy doing all the decanting and seeing the results onContinue reading “08/04/21 – Decanting time”

15/03/21 – Fresh pasta dinner

Nic whipped up the pasta we bought from the market for dinner tonight! He made a sage butter sauce to go with it. The whole thing was very rich so we added some lemon to help cut through. Definitely a success but one we won’t be having every Monday for fear of getting gout. OtherContinue reading “15/03/21 – Fresh pasta dinner”

16/02/21 – Pancakes and saying goodbye to social media

Today is shrove Tuesday! We had pancakes for our pudding tonight and they were lush. For Lent I’m attempting to abstain from social media (not including my blogs!). I think it’ll be hard, but good for me. I’m finding myself getting more and more wound up by terrible people on the internet, so it’s timeContinue reading “16/02/21 – Pancakes and saying goodbye to social media”

01/02/21 – It’s February, baby!

A little bit achy today but much better than yesterday! It’s finally February after the year that was January… We’ve cracked open the mini eggs so that’s kept me happy. Also managed to do three miles of walking today so that’s good too! I’m really trying hard to get into more of a routine andContinue reading “01/02/21 – It’s February, baby!”

29/01/21 – Belated Christmas gift!

Nic and I are both contracting for the same company at the moment and yesterday we received belated Christmas gifts from them! Two smart mugs! You can control the temperature you want your drink to stay at from the app and it stays hot. I’ve now used it for multiple cups of peppermint tea andContinue reading “29/01/21 – Belated Christmas gift!”

19/01/21 – Tofu Tuesday

Latching onto the little things… Made some progress today at work on my latest project. Then this evening popped to Sainsbury’s to get some cake ingredients and veggies for Nic’s birthday! Had a gorgeous stir fry for dinner then a nice zoom chat with some friends. Eye is still twitching like mad though, possibly dueContinue reading “19/01/21 – Tofu Tuesday”

17/01/21 – Cycle and an egg!

Today’s weather was too good to miss out on so I hoped on my bike for a trip via Central London! I stopped off at tower Bridge to eat my first creme egg of the season then headed back home again. It was wonderful to get out into the sunshine and see London for theContinue reading “17/01/21 – Cycle and an egg!”

26/12/20 – Traditional boxing day…

I did exceptionally little today. I played Minecraft for about five hours then ate choccies and watched Unorthodox on Netflix (would totally recommend!). Nic and I did make another batch of roasties today though to eat with the leftovers, they somehow were even better than yesterday’s! I’m feeling very trapped in this house right nowContinue reading “26/12/20 – Traditional boxing day…”

15/12/20 – Christmas Countdown

With ten days to go until Christmas, the UK is apprehensive about a potential change to the “Christmas bubble” situation the government are trying to organise. I’ve already got a plan together with my mum and sister about how we can meet and not break the law (what a crazy sentence) I just hope thatContinue reading “15/12/20 – Christmas Countdown”
