Hello. I am not here. Obviously. I am studying for my new OU course. Except that I am here, because I am easily distracted. Since I sat down an hour ago the most productive thing I have done is this….

Syd starting school in September bought about many changes, one of which being a change from being relatively sedentary (well, as much as you can be with small people in the house!), to now walking 5 miles a day, 5 days a week.
All that walking on the school run has been hard on my joints, could the right shoes make a difference?

Fifty. The decade of cardigans, cruises and creaky joints. Well. I have always been partial to a cardigan, a cruise would be a vomit fest due to my wobbly inner ear and my joints have been creaky for a long time. But then again I am only 42, it is my…

It’s that time of year where I keep seeing the word ‘declutter’ everywhere. The problem is I like clutter, I am a hoarder, an archivist, a museum curator in waiting. BUT that doesn’t mean I like my home to be a mess, so how can you keep on top of things…

I have been slowly working on creating a space themed bedroom for Syd. My inspiration came from his Early Learning Center rocket – a toy which all three of my children have owned and loved – not only is it a lot of fun, but I love it’s striking vintage…

The recent freezing weather called for some proper traditional warming grub. We are a family of veggies, bar the teenager, but that doesn’t stop us hankering after a good old hotpot. On this occasion I made it using quorn steak strips, but you could…
Last week's freezing weather called for a winter warmer in the form of this vegetarian steak and ale hotpot

It was my fella’s 50th birthday at the weekend, and birthdays call for cake. His favourite is Lemon Drizzle Cake, and if you can’t have your favourite cake on your 50th birthday I am not sure when you can!

OK. All pretense is gone – this cake isn’t even masquerading as healthy by having fruit in it – instead it is a biscuit flavoured cake. Obvs I wasn’t going to lose weight with apple cake anyway, and the reason I made this one this week is that Oreo cake…
My daughter is home from uni for a few days, so I made one of her favourites - Oreo Cake

And so my dalliance with fruit cake combos continues, having done banana bread and cherry muffins, this week I let Syd choose – and he asked me to use apples, so I decided to make an Apple Crumble Cake.

Bbrrrrr – been a bit nippy hasn’t it, and cold weather demands suitable food, which in my mind is soup. This leek and potato soup is very simple, cheap, hearty and my kids will eat it – bonus!!

So I am continuing January’s health kick by adding fruit to cake. Yep, not quite managed the diet yet, but the fruit is a start right? Last week was banana and chocolate chip loaf, this week I went for cherry and chocolate muffins.
So the diet is still not going well - but these cherry and chocolate muffins have fruit in, so that is almost healthy right?!
