So, firstly I have to apologise for my distinct lack of blogs. The Summer holidays have hit me like a wet fish in the face and left me wandering around in a haze of fog, facts, figures and fatigue. Even though we home Educate our son, we do tend to take a break for the Summer holidays. As much as for myself as for my beloved. Time to catch up with friends who go to mainstream school and lap up the sometime Sun (ahem). So like most people, the lack of structure can really throw me off.

But when I sit back and ask myself if I’m doing enough to fill the days or achieving the goals I’ve set for work, I realise that I actually go way above and beyond what’s required. We do a lot and I love that we do but sometimes it’s good to sit back and take stock. Let the beloved be bored for once, take a break from worrying about life, pour a large cup of whatever and relax………:)
I was poorly a few weeks back and my wonderful friend brought me round a ‘self care basket’ it was one of the loveliest gifts I’ve ever received and much needed. It opened my eyes to the fact that I always seem to leave myself til last. Since receiving that gift I’ve definitely put aside some time each day to meditate and write and it’s been so beneficial.
That wonderful friend has written a fantastic blog on self care. Take a look at her site.
One thing I am super proud of, is the fact that I finally completed my course and am now a qualified nutritional therapist, yay! It means I, along with my partner are one step closer to going live with our business. So watch this space……:) I can tell you that it involves food, lifestyle and fitness but the rest will have to wait…..It will be worth it, promise!
So I couldn’t leave you without posting something on food. Afterall, it is the greatest love of my life…..well, after my 2 beloveds of course.
As a busy mum, I’m always looking for quick and easy food to make. Still focussing on health and taste but something you can throw in a pot or baking tray, engulf with herbs and serve.
Step forward halloumi, yes that salty block of gorgeousness is my new favourite cheese and goes beautifully with roasted veg,
Or salad, or just grilled on its own. The saltiness adds so much taste, you hardly need to season. I just drizzle some olive oil and black pepper to some leaves and devour.
I’m working on some new taste sensations and will be sharing those real soon. Until then, enjoy some Summer Sun, embrace your you and keep cooking. Love to you all xxxx
