LIFESTYLE: When life gets in the way …

…which it does for all of us.

Five days has elapsed since I wrote my last post. As I banned myself from eating cake during Lent, maybe it’s sent me into to some mini trauma or shock and disturbed my blogging flow? Whatever the reason I’m back now!

So I’m not going to make a whole load of excuses about why I couldn’t blog … I’ll save that for tweets on Twitter. Here where I share what I have been up to and what has kept me away from the blogsphere….

I’ll start at the beginning of the month. We celebrated my mini-me’s birthday, she is another year older… Wow how time flies. I will never forget the day she was born. We celebrated by holding her a good old kids party with friends and family. It was held at one of those indoor play centres or playbarns. You know the ones where children run around and throw themselves around and drag their poor parents with them, mini-me was said child and Husb and I were poor parents.


We all had a thoroughly good time!

Then it was back to work with a bang! But a bit of window shopping in between, I popped into M&S during one of my rare lunch breaks and spied Emma Bridgewater beauty goodies …. Roll on PAYDAY!


Then fast forward to last weekend where in my part of the UK we saw the start of spring weather and we celebrated my dad’s birthday. We took my dad for a family meal at Red Peppers restaurant which serves Mediterranean food. My dad and I are both very fussy eaters and are both pescatarian so choosing where to eat was a tiny mission. Although pleased to say he enjoyed the meal.


In amongst all of this I have been trying to juggle being mom, wife and employed working person, to keep me sane I add a bit of gym twice a week and my ashtanga Yoga class once a week!

For winding down during the evenings lots of relaxing candles, home facials and relaxing baths….



Lastly I struggled last week with my no cake for lent ban I have a sweet tooth and indulged in some Haribo Jelly babies…. I LOVE these… No judgement 🙂


So the husbands birthday is next week, and Mother’s Day at the end of the month ….so more celebrations and family time in store.

I hope you have all been well?

Thanks for reading. TTFN!
