Whilst this works very well if customers come shopping for themselves, I have discovered a small, but very dangerous risk when people come in to buy gifts for family, frien...

Autumn/Fall Resolutions

Posted on 10 October, 2017 at 13:15 Comments comments (0)

My husband had to go away on business a couple of times over the last few weeks and it was then in particular that I noticed how the nights are drawing in. I guess I was even more susceptible to otherwise more subtle changes like having to turn a lamp on to sit down and have dinner, as things are just never quite the same when your other half isn't with you.

It is quarter past midnight whilst I am typing this and as much as I have always been a bit of a night owl, I usually go to bed at a reasonable time these days. Tonight is different though!

So, I am going to put this out there right now: I don't like it when people on social media start counting down the days until spring in October! There, I have said it, it's out! I don't want to read about how many days until the beginning of spring, how many days until the days "start getting longer again". No, in October I am to busy enjoying red, orange, yellow and brown leaves, boots...

The following is something I wrote in July last year. Thankfully a lot of things have since changed and I am grateful to be able to say, my daughter is no longer effected by any of this and has regained a healthy attitude towards food and lifestyle. It was very worrying and distressing and I am so pleased, we have been able to leave this behind us. Yet, for...

"A Food Blogger is a person who writes a blog dedicated to all things food." This is the definition I found on the internet for food blogger. But what if said food blogger is suffering from writer's block, "the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing."? (Sorry, I have always enjoyed looking up definitions for words and phrase...
