The fatter side of me...

I've been asked so many times to write this blog but I just haven't known where to start. I also don't for one second sound condescending or like I know what I am doing. I don't and I still struggle. A very important point - Weight loss ain't easy, if it was, naughty food wouldn't taste so amazing and everyone would have the figure they want. This I know for sure.


Finding the time to get fit!

I have never been exercise mad unfortunately, as much as I've wanted to be the girl who was into sports and loved going to the gym... instead of rather eating toenails. As a child my dorky side was in full force though, I loved books and drawing and TV basically. Then I got older and liked going out and drinking way more, I was always curvy but I didn't care because I was having too much fun and no diet or exercise plan ever stuck or worked for that matter. 

However after having my first son I was like a planet, when the novelty of "Eating for two" never really wore off and I put on 5 stone. I knew I had to do something and so I joined Slimming World, I have never looked back and recommend it to anyone but I definitely couldn't have lost 5 stone with out exercise too...which I'm the most surprised about but I actually quite enjoy now. It's also so important to me that my boys stay healthy and I want to teach them to like exercise too. 


My favourite Christmas recipes.

Thought I'd throw my favourite recipes for this time of year in a blog, especially as y'all keep asking for them again. Thank you kindly for that. So here you go, now I'm going to wrap like mad....some more and collapse with some wine later.

It has to be the Hot Chocolate Station at No 1.


Cinderella at the Playhouse.


I love a Pantomime but I don't really like reviewing them, reason being I think it spoils it if you are going yourself and I tell you the whole story! So I am going to keep this short and sweet but start by saying you must go...


Hot Chocolate Station! #recipe

We had a few of the neighbours over last night for a little Bonfire party and via group chat I knew the grown ups were covered for wine but I wanted something special for the kids to drink. What is better than Hot Chocolate with all the trimmings on a winter night though, right?! I honestly haven't tasted better than this either if I do say so myself.
