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

“Souq al Bahar 4 Fish”

I woke at 5am in a real huff.  I have no clue why.  Perhaps I had been having an enraging dream or something?  It’s highly possible as I am a compulsive dreamer.  Whatever the reason was though, there was no going back to sleep.  I went through Facebook, and Instagram, and caught up on my blog reading.  I even went on Twitter but that really is my least favourite social media app currently.  By 6am I had finished with those and even playing Boggle and Words with Friends against the app.

Don’t you hate it when your day starts like that!?

It did however rapidly get better as I ended up convincing The Boy that it would be a great time to get up and dressed, and head to the fish market that one of my friends had discovered the other day! Continue reading

2nd Nomination!!

Yep!  I’ve found the energy after my incredibly long last post to tell you about my second award!

Also nominated by the lovely Expat Panda, this time for the Blogger Recognition Award.  It’s another cyber hug really but again, I am really touched to have been thought of given how many bloggers there are out there.  This time though there is no cap on followers so really, it feels bigger and more shiny!

And the Nominees are…

Well, I don’t care who else because, ME!!!

Yep, that’s right!  I have been nominated for two blog awards!!  In a bid to look way more successful and busy, I will be printing in two separate posts!!  I know it’s not a Pulitzer but whatevs!  I am taking it as a win!!!!

(No one who ever got a Pulitzer would ever use so many exclamation points so I’m not holding my breath for that in my future!!!)

The very nice lady who writes Expat Panda nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is very lovely of her.  I don’t know her and I didn’t know she read my ramblings, but I am pleased that she did.  I can now add a pretty new graphic to my page!  See….

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

Cajun Turkey Pasta

Quite some time ago, I found a delicious recipe for Cajun chicken pasta that was Slimming World friendly. I made it and it was as tasty as it sounded. When thinking about what to cook for dinner last night this popped into my head.

Do you think I could find that recipe anywhere? Nope. Not a chance. I did however find a picture of the one I made last time and it jogged my memory somewhat.

Look  how pretty that was!

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
