Weekly Update – 24/04/2017

I am now back from my holiday celebrating my 50th birthday, so yes I am now officially old haha, am just doing a quick update this week. Last Sunday was my birthday and myself, husband and friends flew out to Cape Verde to celebrate my birthday, since we booked our holiday the resort had been split into two and we had heard good and bad comments about various things, we were all unsure what to expect.  Luckily we had no bad experiences at all.

Hawkers Bar And Brasserie Kingston

A new bar and brasserie has opened in my local town of Kingston-Upon-Thames, and last Thursday was their launch night, and I was lucky enough to be invited along with my husband to join them, for an evening of drinks, canopes and live music. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and left our coats and went to mingle and enjoy the atmosphere.  Waiters and Waitresses were walking around with glasses of Prosecco (this made me very happy as it is my new favourite drink). We found a seat and…

Saving Money On Your Weekly Shop

We all suffer with the January blues, once christmas is over and we have recovered from the new years celebrations, we pack away our tinsel and glitter, and everywhere just looks grey and dull, as we set ourselves to get through January, January is also made worse by the long wait for payday, and is a time to tighten our belts and look to get through the month and beyond. One of the many challenges we face, is feeding our family, and I am sure it is not just me…

Blogtober Day 13 – Whats In My Fridge

Blogtober Day 13 – Whats In My Fridge

It is day 13 of Blogtober16, and todays topic is asking what is in my fridge. I would like to start off by saying, I would love to open my fridge and find the contents to look just like those on TV programs or adverts.  You know the ones where the fridge is jam packed with healthy food, or food in nice uniformed plastic labelled containers. Beautiful colours of fresh fruit, vegetables and salad items. Then, I open my eyes and go to my fridge and it is nothing like…

Tails.com Review

Tails.com Review

I was lucky to be offered the chance to review tails.com, they are an online dog food company, that delivers your pets food direct to your door. When you sign up they ask a range of questions about your dog, from age to breed and from the information provided they tailor the food especially for your pet. As Max has a raw food diet, this service was not right for him, so we decided to trial Bear who loves his food. Unfortunately, we had to wait until he was 3…
