Exciting things are coming!

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the radio silence for the last couple of weeks. I have been busy working on something super special for you that I can reveal really soon. Also as you might have noticed, the website, logo and shop have had a huge make over too. I'm so pleased with how it's looking now. We have added some very special Valentine gifts to our shop. Some beautiful roses and some very cute hand crafted felted animals from a very talented local artist. 

I don't know about you, but when things get crazy busy, I get to dinner time and the last thing I want to do is start thinking about what I'm going to cook for my family. This is where having a plan is sooooo helpful. Every week I sit down and plan what we will eat every evening and make a shopping list accordingly. I do love to cook from scratch, but like I said sometimes time just won't allow for this. This is when I look to my freezer meals and my pantry. I have a selection of meals in my freezer that I have prepared ready to cook and I can just grab one the night before, pop it in the fridge overnight to defrost and the next day all of the work is done for me. I just need to cook it! The same with my pantry, I have various meals ready prepared and canned in mason jars ready to go on my shelf. It's convenient and so much cheaper than a trip to the take out on those busy days, not to mention that its so much better for you.

This has been a very busy couple of weeks, but those meals are brilliant and better yet, my children will actually eat it! I know! I was stunned too 😂

Anyway, back to repairing the damage caused by storm Ciara and trying to recover from the flooding. WOW we have had a wet and windy winter so far! 

I hope you are all safe and didn't suffer too much damage after the storm.

Have a wonderful Valentine weekend 

See you all next week
