Dear avocados, Thank you for making me happy by being so god damn delicious. Sometimes you promise a lot and don’t deliver, but that’s okay – I forgive you. It’s worth it for that perfect, spot on avocado that fixes all. Thanks for keeping me on my toes. Love Sarah See the full list here.

It’s funny how life changes, isn’t it. When we first bought our bikes we rode them quite a lot around flat, flat Cardiff with it’s pedestrianised roads and lack of inclines. Since we moved house two years ago to the suburbs, however, the poor things have barely seen the light of day. We live on top of a hill and also, conversely, at the bottom of a hill, so either way we cycle we’re either climbing a hill to leave or to get home –…Continue Reading “31 for 31 Changes: Goodbye Cycling, hello Couch to 5K”

No sugar is easier when you’re on…Continue Reading “2015 Goals: April Round-Up”

Pay it Forward is a blog series where I pay forward the love to one of my favourite blogs. So far, we’ve featured Maggie, Daniel, Dianne, Amber, Allie, & Amy! This week, it’s the turn of Jenny from Sunny Sweet Pea. Who: Jenny! Where: Why: Jenny is just nice. I can’t remember when or why I started reading her blog (the internet, a rabbit hole of links since the beginning of time) but she’s one of my favourites these days. Her posts are often insightful, inspirational and very genuine…Continue Reading “Pay it Forward: Sunny Sweetpea”

Readathon complete! : We did it! I didn’t quite finish Astonish Me (I have 130 pages to go) but I did finish The Witches so that brings my total reads up to 4.5 books, which isn’t too bad I think! Q finished The BFG and got partway into The Explorer – we’re both now ready to drop. Thanks for the fun, Readathonners! Special thanks to the Team Sherlock cheerleaders for their motivational comments – it really helped! 🙂 End of Event Meme: Which hour was…Continue Reading “Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon”
