Well this week has been all about putting all the birthday gifts and toys away, and having a little sort out. I started with our bedroom and managed a huge bag for charity plus some bits for eBaying. I love a good declutter session, and plan to go through the house in the coming weeks. I am a woman on a mission.


I am still reading my Sweet Temptation book ( I WILL finish it this week). I have also been having a read through of the new Slimming World magazine. The gorgeous looking Salted Caramel and Coffee Cheesecake certainly caught my eye. How an earth can something that yummy be Slimming World friendly.

I always struggle with this section as we don’t seem to watch much television. Hubby and I have such different tastes when it comes to programmes and films. Our Netflix nights consist of scrolling through for about 30 minutes, then giving up as we just can’t decide what to watch. Celebrity Big Brother has sucked me in this year though. How many arguments has there been this year.


The 10 year old introduced me to Shawn Mendes and his fab song Stitches. God I am THAT mum now, who has no idea who is in the charts, and the kids know more than me. I love the song and it seems to be constantly on the radio or music channels at the moment.


After having a fairly indulgent birthday where far too much birthday cake and Prosecco was consumed, it was back to healthy eating. The husband made this quick and easy stir fry one evening. I forgot how tasty stir fry is, and the kids only mildly complained about it having ‘too much green stuff’ in it.

My aim for this week was to wear my Pandora more. I was lucky to get 2 more charms for my birthday, one from my husband, and the one below from a close friend.  I was incredibly touched when I opened it, and it really adds a little colour to my otherwise silver bracelet.


And lastly

We have a sneaky little night away planned tomorrow, just me and the husband. It was a birthday treat from him, and really looking forward to going away just the two of us. Have a great week x

      Thank you Anna-Marie. My Pandora is usually kept in its box but I really need to make the effort more and actually wear it. I have actually enjoyed CBB this year mainly for all of the tension and arguments. Crazy lot of people lol. Thank you for popping by x

  3. You’ve reminded me I need to start buying the SW mags, they’re so good for inspo – we love a good stirfry, we have one most weekends ‘stirfry Sunday’ usually haha!

    Oh I’ve been listening in on CBB, it’s been crazy this year!! Probably helps there’s a lot of people we all know in there. Enjoy your night away 🙂 xx

    Thank you Imogene. I like the idea of ‘Stir-fry Sunday’. Hubby usually makes a roast on a Sunday, but sometimes if we go out for the day its nice to just have a quick tea x

  5. Ooh, have a lovely time on your romantic night away – I can’t wait till I can get a night away with my other half…..hopefully this side of 2020! x

      Thank you. We are back now and had a lovely chilled out time away. I hope you manage a night away before the year 2020 lol x

  6. Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy your night away! I’m tempted to make that cheesecake myself, but I was worried I’d devour it all in one sitting (I’m THAT greedy!). I did buy the stuff to make those coffee mousses on the opposite page to it though so fingers crossed they’ll hit the spot. Have a great weekend x

      Hope the chocolate mousses turn out well for you. I must admit they look just as yummy as the cheesecake. We are back from our night away and had a lovely chilled out time. Back to reality now x

  7. Aww what a lovely roundup. Made me chuckle about the music! That stir fry looks yummy x #littleloves
