    A to Z Blogging Challenge: S is for Selfie With A Giraffe

    Welcome back to my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts. I’ve fallen a little behind, but instead of trying to do the posts that I’ve missed, I’m writing the post that I was meant to write today anyway, which is S, and I’ll catch up later when I have time. So, today is S for Selfie With A Giraffe, which is one of the items close to the top of my wish list. If you’d like to read the rest of my posts, you can catch up by clicking on my index post, which is right here. I’ve always been a short person. I’m 4ft 10 (and a half) and…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: M is for Marble

    Onto the third week of the challenge now and I’m getting to the stage where I can see the end in sight. I think today is the halfway point. So, M is for Marble and initially I was going to write about a brand called Marble (I really admire their products and would love to buy them) but the problem with that idea was that it might be too much like advertising and you’re not allowed to do anything commercial on the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Ok, I wouldn’t have been getting paid for it and wouldn’t have anything to gain from it, but it’s still slightly suspicious. So,…

    Review: Rainbow Chalk Sealant Pen and Grout Pen

    Sometimes I’m asked to review items and I have to turn the chance down because it’s an item that I wouldn’t otherwise have used or needed. Then there are items like these that I was literally desperate to try because the items were on my shopping list anyway. Today I’m reviewing the Rainbow Chalk sealant pen and grout pen. I’ve received a gifted free sample for the purposes of review but the opinions are my own. First let’s tackle the sealant pen. The first thing I did was try it on my bathroom seals but I just replaced the seal on my bath so it doesn’t tell you much about…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: H is for Home

    Today for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I was going to write about H for Health and that’s what was mentioned yesterday on my Gibraltar post. That’s not the vibe I am feeling today though. Although good health is vitally important for all my family and I wouldn’t have my best possible life without them all having excellent health, I can’t stick it on the wish list today. Partly because I feel like if we had our best life possible, then excellent health would follow. It’s a chicken and egg scenario. So, instead today is going to represent H for Home. I want a new one. I am almost…

    Quick and Easy Lamb Bhuna Recipe

    There was a time when I didn’t enjoy cooking. I was more of an eat-to-live kind of person and it’s only since my son has started to take an interest in joining me in the kitchen that I’ve begun to enjoy preparing meals. Today I want to share a recipe that I’ve been making for a few years now, for lamb bhuna. This is a dish I first tried out when I was pregnant and preparing meals to freeze for those difficult “babymoon” days when your mind is mush and you need something quick and simple that you can remove from the freezer. So, here is my recipe, which takes…
