3 Day Juice Cleanse

The Boy and I have decided that our cuddly bits are getting a bit too fluffy.  We are constantly falling on and off the diet wagon.  Mostly off to be fair.  It’s very nice being with someone who understands weight issues (he is the 2015 Mr. winner chap for his SW group), but it also means we have someone to dive head first into a chocolate for breakfast type scenario with if we fancy it!

Best breakfast in bed of the year!


Yep.  It was this pic that showed me a) again how well suited to each other we are, and b) that I need to get my weight under control urgently.  By “under control”, I mean start losing rapidly.

As we  laid there watching Happy Valley (just found it and can’t believe Continue reading

London Will NEVER Fall

London-Attacks-Twitter-Meme

I have so many words today that this could be a jumbled mess that I never remember the actual starting point for.  On the plus side it won’t be as bad as it could be as it’s first thing in the morning and so there is no wine involved.

I was sat on my couch last night when a BBC News Alert binged my phone.  Because of the regularity of famous people dying last year, The Boy always asks “who has died this time” when he hears it.  This time no one – yet. Continue reading

Walden Farms vs Choc Shot

This is a very short post because there is no debate in my mind….

Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup kicks Sweet Freedom’s Choc Shot ass.  It isn’t as watery and it has a better and less synthetic chocolate taste.

You can see I love them by the fact they are emptying, and the Choc Shot isn’t!

I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the Continue reading

Avoca-do or don’t?

According to Slimming World rules, avocados have syns.  10 syns per 100g to be precise.  It seems like a lot.

The avocado pear is one of the most nutrient packed fruits around.  It has vitamins B, C, E and K for a start.  It also has a bunch of other things that I can’t remember and probably couldn’t pronounce anyway.   Continue reading

Armchair Detectives

I break with my catch up for an up to date event, because I have words in my head that I need to use up!

Last night The Boy and I ended up watching the new Amanda Knox documentary on Netflix. We have always both been interested true crime type things, and so the odd documentary like this is something we both want to watch and don’t have to compromise on!!

Olympic Sized Objections to the Media

I feel a rant coming on.

In case you’ve been living in a cave in the remote mountains of Outer Mongolia, you will know that the Olympics is on.  I have zero interest.  I never have, and unless I am invited to join Prince William and Prince Harry for a day, the likelihood of me ever being interested is nil.

The newspapers (online) have been full of X wins Gold/Silver/Bronze.  Thousands of words have been dedicated to celebrating the athletes accomplishments and their medal haul – or lack thereof in a few cases.  Totally news worthy and congratulations to everyone for being selected to represent your country.  It’s an amazing feat!

Naturally there is a flip side… Continue reading

Snappy Chatting

I was having one of my regular Facebook mumbles the other day and used the phrase “hot as a bastard oven” to describe the weather at the moment.  I think this is a very accurate way to sum it up.  However… My coworker thought it was the funniest thing she had read in forever, and was still giggling about it the next morning.

Yep.  Apparently I’m funny.  Who knew.

During the highly entertaining conversation, where she likened my comic genius to Melissa McCarthy (well, my circumference at least used to be the same before she got all healthy so there is some connection), she suggested that I start a vlog, or video-blog for those of you who are as up to date as me.

This alarmed me on many levels, for example: Continue reading
