Variety Is The Spice Of Life

This week I have been determined to not rest on my laurels, meaning, not depending on my favourite recipes so much. I realise I’m eating pretty much the same few meals each week. Don’t get me wrong, I do vary them with different sides but still my repertoire has become quite limited. I have, asContinue reading “Variety Is The Spice Of Life”

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Still getting to grips with all the recent changes. Still loving the house we have moved into although the smaller kitchen remains a challenge, but getting there. Still have bits of furniture to get and need to ‘dress’ the house with pictures and ornaments etc. I do prefer a simple uncluttered space though. As usualContinue reading “Busy, Busy, Busy!”

Life got in the way – big time!

Going through a really difficult time at the moment and I can’t disclose fully why because it would not be fair to others involved. Suffice to say that my mental health is taking a battering and it’s not helped by the pandemic which means I can’t meet up with friends who would normally be myContinue reading “Life got in the way – big time!”

Moving In – Moving On!

There is so much to do with this moving home lark! Not helped by the fact that the kitchen appliances seem to have taken exception to being moved. Sorted out the cooker and washer, or rather my son did. My slow cooker is no more, following an accident when it was left on the cookerContinue reading “Moving In – Moving On!”

New Year Resolution – Living the best plant-based life

Apologies for not posting for almost 4 weeks but during that time I have moved home. They say moving home is one of the most stressful things you can do and I can honestly say that has been the case. The eldest grandchild has moved out and I can say wholeheartedly that I miss hisContinue reading “New Year Resolution – Living the best plant-based life”

Happy New Plant-Based Year!

I’m feeling so good health wise. However, we started this new year in tier 4 in another attempt to curb the spread of Corona Virus. When will it end? It occurred to me that for the first time in many years I was in a place in my life where I was able to dressContinue reading “Happy New Plant-Based Year!”

Enjoying a very different Christmas – pandemic style

Life still isn’t back to normal (what am I taking about?) life isn’t “normal” for any of us since Covid reared it’s ugly head! but my sister is now out of isolation and has returned to work. Fortunately her COVID symptoms were mild, however, she is drained of energy. So while she is not infectious,Continue reading “Enjoying a very different Christmas – pandemic style”

A Tough Week

Events have overtaken me this week. My sister, who works as a carer, tested positive for COVID and is currently isolating at home. So far her symptoms are mild kind of flu-like along with extreme exhaustion. My sister is a carer and has worked continuously with elderly and vulnerable clients throughout the pandemic. So hatsContinue reading “A Tough Week”

A Plant-Based Run Up to Christmas

The house is so busy right now in the run up to Christmas. The tree is already decorated – at least two weeks earlier than I normally put it up, but I couldn’t hold out any longer from the onslaught of requests to get “ in the Christmas spirit.” So tree up, Christmas presents bought,Continue reading “A Plant-Based Run Up to Christmas”

The only constant thing in life is change!

It’s been quite a week. Back to having 3 teenage boys in the house makes for a busy, chaotic household! Other family commitments have meant that I haven’t given my blog the attention I should have this week – hence being late in posting! Talking about change, we are currently in the second period ofContinue reading “The only constant thing in life is change!”
