Merry Christmas 2019

Merry Christmas 2019

An alternative belated Merry Christmas from me to you…

Typical, I had a message prepared and then I went and caught THAT bug that’s been going around which stopped me from posting it.

And, I’m actually really pleased it did. It was just too darn fluffy and not realistic, so here’s a shortened re-worked edit for all of you in chrimbo limbo out there.

Wild Kitchen & Autumn Foraging at Lydford Gorge in Devon

Wild Kitchen & Autumn Foraging at Lydford Gorge in Devon

As the seasons transition from Summer to Autumn suddenly the hedgerows become abundant with fruit and berries.

I’ve always wanted to give foraging a go but, I have never known where to start and I wouldn’t want to eat something poisonous! 🌱

Lydford Gorge host the most amazing seasonal workshops and on a trip to Devon I joined the Wild Kitchen experience.

Here’s a look at my day foraging and cooking…

The Fitness Diaries August 2019 – Exercise and illness

The Fitness Diaries August 2019 – Exercise and illness

Month six of my fitness journey is another rollercoaster of a month. Just when I had got back on the wagon, I came down with a bug and was a bit under the weather.

Setbacks be dammed, the motivation is real!

These posts are not preachy, it’s just documenting one girl’s mission to feel happier in herself.

The Fitness Diaries July 2019 – Trying and failing to get back on the exercise wagon

The Fitness Diaries July 2019 – Trying and failing to get back on the exercise wagon

Last month I fell off the wagon in a big way. While month four of my fitness journey was a disaster, the only way was up in July.

Month five of my fitness journey has been very patchy as I try and climb back on the exercise wagon.

For those of you new to my blog, these posts document my journey but are not preachy, it’s just one girl on a mission to feel happier in herself.

Join me as I share my journey, work outs and motivations in July.

The Fitness Diaries June 2019 – Falling off the exercise wagon

The Fitness Diaries June 2019 – Falling off the exercise wagon

I am so far off the wagon, I can’t even see the wagon! Month four on my fitness journey has been what most would deem as an EPIC FAILURE. Trying to keep all to my commitments while sticking to exercise has not worked in June.

There’s been no Couch to 5k training program, no gym sessions and no weights. This is not good, in fact, it’s worse than that – how could I let this happen?

Like I’ve said before these posts about my journey are not preachy, it’s just one girl on a mission to feel happier in herself.

Join me as I share my journey, work outs and motivations, or lack of them, in June!

The Fitness Diaries May 2019 – The Garden Gym

The Fitness Diaries May 2019 – The Garden Gym

Month three on my fitness journey has been all about balance. Trying to keep all to my commitments while sticking to exercise has been hard.

There’s not enough time in the day to fit everything in. But, rather than give up altogether, I’ve stuck to the Couch to 5k training program, adding in gym sessions with weights when I can.

Like I’ve said before, it’s not preachy, it’s just one girl on a mission to feel happier in herself.

Join me as I share my journey, work outs and motivations as I run my way through May and discover the garden gym!

Making a leather satchel with The Makers Guild

Making a leather satchel with The Makers Guild

It’s not often you can say the garment or bag you’re wearing is one you’ve hand made yourself.

Henry (the taller, more numerically inclined, better half) very sweetly booked me onto a course at The Makers Guild – a leather workshop which teaches you how to make a satchel.

It was an incredible experience, take a look at the journey from punching holes to stitching the bag together.
