Good Morning! I hope you are enjoying my consistency as much as I am? Today I will share a few tips and tricks I’ve learnt since moving out and having to cook most days. Continue reading
This past long weekend was superb! The weather played along giving us some much-needed rain and Sunday was a stunning summers day! It was so good Claud and I both agreed we cannot sit at home.
Firstly; HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I have positive energy for 2018 and we all need to believe it’s going to be a good one, 2016/7 was complete shite.
