More food, Piggies!

When I was a child, my Mummy had surgery a bit too close to Christmas for my Dad’s liking.  In order to play the supportive husband card and get as many brownie points as possible, he booked to take the four of us plus my maternal Grandmother and Grandfather out to dinner on Christmas Day. …

Pancake Day Yummy-ness!!

I wonder how many hundreds of blog posts have been published in the last 24hrs about pancakes?!  A fair few I would imagine.  I know my reader is full of them.  Why?  Because Pancake Day is amazing! Of course it’s actually called Shrove Tuesday and is the day before Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday. The…

Quick! Feed Me!

Do you ever have days where you think that you will pass out if you don’t eat quickly enough?  Or, where you’ve had such of a bitch of a day at work that you just want to eat and then collapse into bed and binge-watch something suitably trashy on Netflix?! If you don’t, you’re not…

Burger Blow Out!!!

This past weekend saw my Dubai Anniversary.  I landed in this weird adult Disney World 6 years ago.  I don’t think I ever meant to stay so long, and have certainly spent a chunk of that time planning where to escape to next, but this is my home. (I also am far to lazy to…

Happy New Year!

Ok, so we are 19 days in to the new year but the sentiment still counts! It’s been a bit hectic.  The Boy and I decided VERY last minute to fly back to the UK and surprise my Mum for Christmas.  I think it worked too… My awesome sister had bought us the absolute BEST…

Merry Christmas!!!

I don’t go in for all this “seasons greetings” or “happy holidays’ bollox.  It’s Christmas and I’m excited!! So much so, that I have changed the look of my blog for the next week! Also, I have a beautiful real tree this year…

New Year, New Start… again!

NB: This is a rambley post, mostly so I remember what I have done!! After an excessive amount of food and alcohol over November and December, I have decided to bite the bullet and join Slimming World Online, again. Why was it 2 months of over-indulgence and not just the regular 1 month?!  Well, there…

Strange Omelette

Have you ever read Whoopi Goldberg’s book, “Book“?   It’s an autobiography, but written in the funniest way possible.  It’s in my top 3 books of all time, which for those of you who know me, is an indication of how good it is!  I have read far too many books, if there is such a…

Pizza Cravings

Me, yesterday….   The result…   Freedom Pizza rocks! 

Spaghetti Squash, Part 2

Yes… this is going to turn into a 4 part series!  I can only eat half a squash in one dinner! So, last night I had half a spaghetti squash to play with, and didn’t want to do the same recipe again.  That would be boring and I am not boring – in the kitchen anyway!…
