The average Brit spends around £2000 on coffee in cafes and high street shops every year showing how the drink has become a much-loved addition to our diets. Tired mums often need a little boost to start the day and a morning coffee can really become part of your routine. Here are some ways to enjoy your treat in a healthy way and without breaking your diet.
February is whizzing by. Last week the slow cooked honey garlic chicken was unbelievably good. I had to close my eyes at how much honey went in but oh my it was worth it. The kids loved it to so it will definitely be featuring on our menu again and I'll blog the recipe.
This week is a mad one and the lead up to my week of birthday madness starting on 18th where both my kids, my husband, Mum and Dad all celebrate their birthdays within 5 days. Yes, really! Plus we have lots of events so I'm trying to keep to the plan where I can!

Here's my guide to the ultimate baby shower hamper gifts to guarantee smiles from mums-to-be.
Last week we stuck to our weekly meal plan really well. We only changed one meal due to Husband's cold. I didn't fancy cooking just for me so had a quick risotto instead.
This weekend the kids and I are down at my Mum's so not much cooking for me this week - Hurrah!

I'm starting something new for 2018. A way to free some of my favourite photos from the past month from my phone. These are snaps I've caught on the hop and catalogue the highs and lows (and the normal bits in between) of the month. This ties in with my resolution to get more photos printed! I'm still undecided on the format so I'll be experimenting a little with how to display the pictures.
