My Weight Loss Journey

I’m a bit hesitant to write this post and have been putting it off for a month. I feel if I put it down on paper, it’s permanent and if I fail well then…no-one likes disappointment. Especially when it’s ourselves we’ve disappointed. Paper can be burnt, shredded, torn up. Putting it down in a blog is permanent. There’s no ink but Google...

Frozen Butter

Frozen Butter

So who’s forgotten to take out the butter before baking or just felt like baking on the spur of the moment? I usually leave the baking butter in a container in the kitchen but our South African Summers can get HOT and instead of being squishy between my thumb and forefinger, it’s melted.

After my visit to Nice in Parkhurst I had a brainwave. Let me try something new. We have leftover strawberries from the picnic that never was on Wednesday and the...

Dukan Diet pre-reading

  So I’ve decided to go on the Dukan Diet. We advertised it on Premium Prizes, all copies were snapped up immediately but I saw it as another fad-diet and pointless. So why have I suddenly seen it on various blog posts, Facebook and in a magazine? It’s a sign. I downloaded it from Amazon onto my Kindle. I read the important stuff, bookmarked the food...
