I find myself day dreaming about holidays and travel recently. I think as life very slowly attempts to get back to normal I am struggling with the reality that I will not be going abroad any time soon.

However today we decided to head off on the bikes to explore Central London again as it may be our last chance as the shops open again soon. This time we were … Continue reading Day 65: cycling London

Partly as their respective housemates were leaving and they would be on … Continue reading Day 58: relaxed weekend

Since going gluten free over 3 years ago it took me a while to get back into baking as I just struggled with the old GF bake. It wasn’t the same. My mum even got me a baking course … Continue reading Day 56: can’t stop, won’t stop…. baking!
