Top Recipes and Links

It's certainly been a while since my last blog post, life has suddenly become sooooo much busier - and my blog has paid the price!

I'm still very active on other social media platforms so for anyone stumbling across my blog today I thought it'd be useful to post a few links that seem to be popular alongside other ways you can interact with me...

 Ahhhhh, Summer. My favourite time of the year, not only because of the lovely weather but also because we get to turn off the early alarm and avoid the dreaded school run...

Falling in love with Ashbourne

A few weeks ago, I ran my first 5k... Donnnn't worry, this isn't another post about running but instead about the place I discovered on my travels.

I've never really explored much of Derbyshire, and this was the first time I've visited Ashbourne in particular. Ashbourne is a lovely little hilly town filled with retro looking storefronts and, on this occasion, also DRENCHED in swags of festive bunting.

Running with the family

A few months ago, I started the Couch to 5K challenge in a bid to get myself off the couch and into a more healthier lifestyle. Starting to run seemed like an mammoth task, but I got there in the end and a few weeks ago I participated in my first 5K run! The feeling of pride as I crossed that finish line was absolutely amazing and I've really been bitten by the running bug now.

Glamping in Wales

Earlier this year, my partner and I decided to book a weekend away from it all. Living in the East Midlands gave us lots of options for places to visit and we eventually settled on Wales. I've never been adverse to camping or roughing it on holiday so we looked towards treehouses, yurts etc in a bid to find something a bit romantic, but with an outdoorsy feel.

Review of Tortilla Nottingham

Mexican style food is one of my favourite cuisines - tacos, tortillas, quesadillas, burritos I love em all! And luckily for me Nottingham has seen a few new Mexican restaurants open up recently.

Me and the boys were recently invited to try out one of these new additions to the Nottingham food scene - Tortilla in Victoria Centre. Situated alongside Millies Cookies (c'mon we all know where they are right?!). Tortilla is a chain restaurant specialising in Californian burritos and tacos.

Starting to run

As a non-driver, I spend a LOT of my time on public transport. I take the tram to work everyday and as long as I have my Spotify or a book to entertain me then I'm a happy traveller!

Mini Egg Brownie Cookies

Creme Eggs get all the attention at Easter, but then who can resist those gooey centres when they're drizzled over a cheesecake or brownie? Not me anyway.

But I have a soft spot for Mini Eggs. When I could eat dairy, I could easily demolish an entire bag in one sitting and I don't think I'm alone in this confession...
