Being warm

There’s a few funny thing to get used to.

The thing that I actually kind of miss, is being so in tune with nature. If it was freezing outside, then it was freezing inside; if it was slightly warmer outside, it was slightly warmer inside. The week before last  it was hailing/snowing/sleeting outside, but because it was warm inside, we hardly realised! If we’re going out now, we have to actually pop outside to tell how warm it is, to know what to wear. It’s quite strange!

The Nutella! This is possibly the best thing about the warmth (apart from actually being warm of course) No longer do we have to de-frost the nutella on the toaster. Now it is smooth and soft and ready to spread!

The washing up. Now, you stack it up and it dries all by itself! (Tea-towels were a necessity before)

Clothes. They are already at a comfortable temperature to put on in the morning! No longer do I need to put them in front of a fan heater; turning them round occasionally before they were bearable to wear! They honestly used to feel like they’d been hanging up outside all night.

The Rayburn has the added bonus of acting like an iron. I fold up the kids’ school t-shirts and leave them lying on the lids of the hob and the creases (mostly) come out!

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…..
Victor Frankenstein starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe
March 10, 2016
This review is coming from the point of view of someone who has never read Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or seen any other film about it, and first thing I can say is that I don’t think that mattered at all, and may have even been better that way. I mean, Mary Shelley wrote the book in 1818 where-as the film was set roughly 1870s I would say, judging from my recent in-depth research into the late Victorian period. I couldn’t find any definitive information on this online either, so perhaps the film-makers deliberately kept the date ambiguous. It peaked my interest though; particularly as the beginning is set at a circus…
Making a pineapple and walnut cake – a picture guide for beginners
May 26, 2016
These pictures were taken when I made my favourite cake to celebrate twelve years of this blog. The recipe is nothing particularly special or exciting, and now that the Great British Bake-off is such a hit, this is probably incredibly tame, but I thought I’d share it anyway. (At least I’m assuming that’s likely the case – I’ve never actually watched the show apart from one Children-in-need episode.) There’s a possibility you’ve never put pineapple or walnut together in a cake before, and now is your chance to be inspired! …
