Reading Night Circus, ready for Bons Book Club. I'm not sure on it yet so I've also been re-reading Caitlin Moran's "How to be a Woman" because its just an hilariously funny book and full of such wisdom

Click on the photo to find out more about Bon's Book Club, its great! Join in the fun!

Exercising by starting running...... it's tough and I am not a natural runner but I'm going to learn to love it. Kudos to the man for training me. I'm prone to being a bit sassy with him when we start out! I want new running shoes but that will have to wait until frugal times are over with.
I need these in my life. Found here

Loving the 5 day weekend I have starting tomorrow... thank you work. Also loving my Man more than ever... still cant believe I lucked out finding him.

Looking forward to spending time with my whole family over Easter, all of us are home for the holidays I can't wait! I talk about my bond with my siblings here and its still one of my favourite posts.

Drinking LOTS of water... the weather is warmer and I'm fanatic about keeping hydrated

Wearing My bee necklace that I mentioned in this post. I love it.
Organising Hen Do's!! One of my best friend's is getting married this year and I am Chief Bridesmaid and so i am in charge of the hen do.... its fun but also hard work and tiring! I feel I';m constantly chasing people for info, payments, clothes sizes etc...... It will be worth it in the end though I am sure!!! Any tips anyone???

That's all for now folks;  I'll update with some yummy recipes real soon


  1. Your hot cross buns look delicious! I could just eat one! All power to you taking up running! I don't think I would make it to the end of the road without passing out!

    Hope you have a lovely Easter with your family xxx

    1. Thanks Rachel

      Hope you had a lovely Easter!

      The Hot Cross buns were great, one day I will post the recipe! One day....... Still loving the running, it makes me happy... and pass out! xxx

  2. Good luck with the running. I did the Couch to 5k programme about two years ago and so know how tough it is to start. Definitely get yourself some proper running shoes, they're worth every penny and should help prevent you from getting some injuries.

    Also, for the hen do, the best bit on ones I've been on are the Mr and Mrs game, tape the groom in advance and then ask the bride the same questions, then play the groom's response and see how well they know each other, often hilarious!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by Lisa!

      Have now purchased the running shoes and I'm loving the running! I just hope I can keep it up!

      Live your idea of a Mr and Mrs game. Seen it done before and will defo do a version of it at the hen do... very exciting!

      I look forward to reading more pf your blog x
