What I learnt on retreat

What I learnt on retreat

I’ve just spent the most amazing 4 days on retreat in Spain. Set amongst the green mountains (I didn’t know Spain could be so green) near Malaga. So why did I go on retreat? Going on retreat is my idea of heaven. After being at home with the kids for the...

Spinach and basil pesto

I love pesto, it has to be one of my favourite things.  Like many people I used to buy pesto, I didn’t know where to start with making it.  But it’s so easy to make and so much better (no added rubbish!).  These are rough quantities; the great thing about...

A little sad, and may be a bit crazy!

Today my little girl is 1 year old. I can’t believe it. I mean it went quickly with my first but with her, my second, it really has flown by and I say that with no exaggeration. And that’s why I feel sad, I barely remember those early newborn days now, where she was...

Have a Sunday cook-up

If you want to eat healthily you need to cook. But when you’re busy and rushing around cooking can become not only a chore but way down your list of priorities. This is where batch cooking comes in. You need to get organised, cook some food at the weekend, pop it in...
