So, last week, I was "glutened".This is a phrase coined by well-understanding fellow coeliacs who know all too well what it's like when you accidentally consume gluten/wheat.Therefore, glutened!I had a bad bout of it too. As I was in Bulgaria, I was trying my damnedest to avoid anything that looked "wheaty" and, for the most… Continue reading Who doesn’t love the bloated look?
Gripping!I couldn't put it down.From start to finish, I was hooked.It was one of those books that, when you're asked to do something by someone else, you say "Let me finish this chapter" and, sneakily, you read two more.The story revolves around a couple whose baby has been kidnapped whilst they attend a dinner party… Continue reading The Couple Next Door – Shari Lapena (review)
Before I start, I should warn you that I am referring to Quad biking... this is not a fitness post so please do not expect me to demonstrate a workout on my quads.

It was an eventful weekend with myself driving a child back to Birmingham at 4:30am on Saturday morning after a (long) trip to A&E, then… Continue reading Exhaustion
So, today is my birthday and I've been spoilt rotten by my boyfriend, family and friends. I've reached the mere old age of 32 and can honestly say I'm not even bothered about my age. People stress about their 30s and say that they wish they were in their twenties but during my early twenties… Continue reading Birthday Love
When you make it through the week and the kids in your class think you deserve attendance stickers! Anyone else exhausted?? Roll on the summer... ☀️🍹
These words are usually followed by hideous gasps because how can anyone hate summer, right?
