* There are some gifted products featured in this post. We also stayed at the holiday let free of charge. January seemed to last forever, but February has passed in a flash. At the beginning of the month we had a belated birthday celebration for Jesse. Some friends came down to Brighton and we headed to a local gaming café. Both of us are fans of both board and video games and you can play both at C:\Side Quest. Having only opened last summer it’s one of our favourite places to go. It’s right on the beach and has amazing…

Lush – it’s definitely one of those Marmite type of things, people either love or hate it. And I am one of those who absolutely loves it! If I had infinite money I would probably spend it all in my local store. In an attempt to cheer myself up after being ill for so long I placed an order online.

Finally we have said goodbye to January! Was it just me or did that month seem to last forever? The weather was awful, I think we had 2 maybe 3 days of sunshine, the rest were grey and rainy.

Always cooking the same things week in, week out so I dug out the recipe books and started looking for inspiration. Oddly this one wasn’t from a recipe book but actually on the side of some wild rice I had in the cupboard. We are big fans of curry, especially thai curry so I just had to try this. It is super easy to do, and it tastes delicious. So…

Today is Blue Monday, which means that today is officially the most depressing day of the year. Now I’m not 100% sure on how true that actually is. However I do know that depression is real, and people suffer all year round from it. The weather is definitely getting me down at the moment, and I am dreaming of sunshine. One of my goals this year is to improve my self-care. I will admit that the last few years I have concentrated more on my little girl than myself. But now it’s time for me. One of my favourite things to…
