Back to School with Lighter Life Fast

September is one of my favourite months. After a long summer break, it is good to get back in to routine, and start some new ones. Now that the kids are back to school, I have a bit more time to think about myself, and the changes I want to make in my life. One of the changes I’m hoping to make is to my diet. If you’ve been a long time reader of my blog, you will know that I’ve made several attempts at a healthy lifestyle. Well, here I am again, this time hoping to make some permanent […]

A Summer BBQ with Tesco Northern Ireland

You just can’t beat a BBQ in the summer time. You know when it’s a warm day and you step outside, and the smell of smoke hangs in the air? That is the smell of summer for me. You can’t help but crave a bbq when you smell that! I had one of those moment a couple of week ago, and I’ve been craving a bbq ever since.

It was supposed to be […]

Locally Sourced Christmas Dinner With Tesco Northern Ireland

When I was growing up, we didn’t have room for a table and chairs in our flat. Meals were consumed on the sofa with our plates on our knees. All meals, except for Christmas dinner. On Christmas day, my mam pulled a table in to the middle of the sitting room, and dressed it with her finest. I remember it feeling so special, gathering round the table as a family, stuffing our tummies with more turkey than we could handle. Christmas dinner was always my favourite. Now, my kitchen is big enough for a table. We sit down to dinner […]
