GU and FRU

This is my review of some posh puddings. (In that case I should probably say desserts, or even sweets, but never mind).

If you’re in Sainsburys and you go to the aisle with the yogurts; at the end there are a few posh refridgerated puddings, and amongst them you’ll find GU and FRU things. (The Us have little dots over them, but I’m not technically minded enough to know how to do that with this keyboard).

These puddings are seriously the most gorgeous things I have ever tasted. My favourite is the siscillian lemon cheesecake. The rasberry and chocolate thing is delicious too, and recently I went to barbeque and was introduced to the delights of the chocolate brownies with warm chocolate sauce. We agreed that these were definitely designed by women!

They aren’t as cheap as a donut, but they really do cheer me up when I need it most! The smaller ones, such as the cheesecakes, are £2.99 for 2. (But you get to keep the little glass jars they come in; and if you want to try and recreate them, I’ve tested them in the oven at 200 degrees (again, too inept to find the little round circle). The brownies are more, for £3.99 (8 in a box) and an extra £1.50 for the sauce (which can also be eaten cold as a sort of truffly thing). All the types I’ve tried are very filling and it really is a struggle to eat more than you wanted to eat, but want to really; if you know what I mean (and I’m sure you do).

My only criticism is that you really can’t eat them when you’re on a diet and I just don’t think that’s fair. And they are just a step away from the low-fat lemon mousses that I just about rely on when I’m on a diet, and that’s just about all of the time.

Incidently, they also do chocolate ice cream, but I won’t be reviewing that, because even GU won’t get me to like ice cream. (Yes I know; everyone tells me everyone likes ice cream. But I don’t, so deal with it ok?!)

Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
