Trying something new every day – beating the lockdown blues. Day 7

I am attempting to do something new every day in a challenge to motivate myself through lockdown 3.0. It’s a big ask during a normal month, let alone one where your movements are restricted to within 5km of your house. In the last three days, here are my snazzy accomplishments: Today I cooked chilli conContinue reading “Trying something new every day – beating the lockdown blues. Day 7”

Ten resolutions every day for thirty days – Completed

[See end of blog for complete list of my ten commandments.] I completed it. Yayyyhh!! I am a champion, of my own ickle tiny world. I finished off with seafood linguine on Saturday evening.

Ten resolutions every day for thirty days – Day 29

[See end of blog for complete list of my ten commandments.] I’m gutted with myself. Over the last two days, the food I’ve produced has been a bit poxy.

IContinue reading “Ten resolutions every day for thirty days – Day 29”

Day 17 of 10 resolutions daily for 30 days.

[See end of blog for complete list of my ten commandments.] I did something today I did not think would have been possible for me to achieve, if you’d asked me even four weeks ago. It’s something most humans have mastered by the sprightly age of 42, but not Mrs. Kitchen Novice here. Are youContinue reading “Day 17 of 10 resolutions daily for 30 days.”

10 – 4 – 30. Ten resolutions for 30 days. Day 11. Beating the Lockdown Blues.

It’s day 11 of my “10 for 30” – 10 resolutions for 30 days (see bottom of blog if you’re very interested). Things going well, I think. I’ve noticed a massive positive difference in my mental state between this lockdown and the previous two. After ten days in the previous lockdowns, I would lose theContinue reading “10 – 4 – 30.
