Me and Mine Project 2017 – April

Guys, I have to preface this with a confession. I have committed a cardinal blogging sin.  I am nearly 3 weeks late posting this entry because I wanted it to be perfect. Rather than just done.  Please forgive me.  I had a mostly wonderful April, it must be said. We spent a lot of it… Read More Me and Mine Project 2017 – April

Stars and Cars 2017 Review

Every year an event takes place in Chorley called Stars and Cars. I’ve heard it best described as a reasonably-priced, vehicle based comic-con in aid of Derian House, a children’s hospice that is very close to my heart.  My favourite charity and the geek world combined, a match made in heaven. Every year, this event… Read More Stars and Cars 2017 Review

#OperationBelleBell week 2

I have totally sucked this week at taking photos of my meals! I have been so busy that I have forgotten until either I’ve finished or I’m halfway through. Thankfully I’ve still had a mostly good week. I wrote a meal plan at the beginning of the week, and mostly stuck to it. The days… Read More #OperationBelleBell week 2

Of treats and cheats

A FIVE POUND LOSS! I am thrilled that this weeks hard work has paid off.   I know that that is not maintainable long term and that’s fine, but it’s such a great start! It’s exactly what I needed to keep me going. This week, I am aiming for 3lbs loss. This will get me… Read More Of treats and cheats

#OperationBelleBell Week One

I’m going to do a weekly food diary with other bits of half interesting information, mostly to track how I’m feeling as well as what I’ve actually eaten as anyone who’s struggled with their weight will know, it’s not just about what you’re eating, and with slimming world, it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle… Read More #OperationBelleBell Week One

Procrastination and Motivation

I’m avoiding writing a few things that I want to, which is a contradiction in itself! However, since dad died I’ve been thinking a lot about life and happiness. I’ve been feeling quite “stuck” and motivated to change things. I’ve started seriously purging a lot of clutter and I have much less patience for negativity… Read More Procrastination and Motivation

Me and Mine Project 2017 – February 

This month will be a very short post I’m afraid. After writing last month and thinking about how I needed to get a photo of “my house family” – this is including my mum and dad who we live with, and how I realised that we didn’t have one. And then, suddenly and without warning,… Read More Me and Mine Project 2017 – February

Tiny Tots Playgroup, Preston Review

  About two months ago, I saw a post on one of the local Facebook selling groups, gauging interest in a playgroup. The poster, Zoe, had realised that there is a lack of places to go with young children in Preston, particularly in our area. I have found the same problem given that I am… Read More Tiny Tots Playgroup, Preston Review
