The Aldi mixologists have been busy mixing up some fresh and fruity cocktails ready for spring that will see us into summer. Think sunny afternoons in the garden and warm evenings spent with friends, there is a mix for you. Continue reading New Spring Cocktails from Aldi
I don’t normally write about anything vaguely political, I don’t pretend to have the knowledge required. In fact I still don’t even know if I should publish this.
This week, with the terror attacks in Brussels, so soon after those in Paris, the world is becoming a worse place. People are becoming less tolerant than they were before, which scares me and shocks me at the same time. People also seem to be becoming numb to these horrific things. Continue reading The World Now
So in just under a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister.
This is just the kind of goal I need to start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer and happier person.
How much do sales calls, PPI claim calls and people trying to make you claim for non existent accident calls annoy you? Well they annoy me, a lot. The CPR Call Blocker has been designed to end this.
For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
This week has been far better than last week, I have started working on myself a bit more, making time to meditate and to exercise and I’m looking forward to a weekend away so that helps, even if the evil that is Easter advertising has turned my child into an egg demanding monster!

Now I’m a great lover of chocolate, I have rather large bottom and thighs as proof, but that doesn’t mean you want the entire contents of Asda’s chocolate aisle showing up at your doorstep over one weekend. So I have pulled together some fab alternatives to chocolate for the kids and the grown ups. Continue reading Easter Without The Chocolate

I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.
