Whatever you do today, do it with PRIDE

Ok, so I don’t know about you guys, but in my culture the word “pride” has some negative connotations. I’ve been taught in my religion to be meek, humble – some would say pious – and that pride is an emotion to avoid. But is it? As a woman,...

Laura’s Very Tasty Lasagne

There’s nothing more comforting than a big plate of homemade lasagne. This is a dish that I’ve been perfecting for over a decade and it’s Ross’ favourite. It tastes rich so smaller portions served with lots of veggies and garlic bread make it a perfect meal to serve a...

Grounding: Day Twenty Nine

Last night I dreamt I was camping with my family. My whole family. As in, my dad was there too. We were in a group talking when I suddenly seemed to become more aware and turned to my left and said “Dad! You’re not supposed to be here! You...

Chicken Schnitzel, Sweetcorn Bulgar and Chilli Mayo.

I tried this recipe from Gousto yesterday with some skepticism. One; I had never tried Bulgar wheat before and two, I wasn’t sure I could make a schnitzel. However; the easy step by step directions on the recipe card made it a lot less daunting and I managed to...

Grounding: Days Twenty Eight

Grounding Day Twenty Eight: My daily routine of popping outside and standing barefoot on the ground has become so normal, I haven’t really had anything to write about. Though I will say that I’ve noticed a change in my mood. I have a hope alive in me that just...

Grounding: Day Twenty Seven

Grounding: Day Twenty Seven In proper routine now. I grounded several times today just walking around my back garden to take bins out, sort the puppy and just because I felt like it. I have decided that for me, grounding clears my head and helps my focus. I’ve found...

My Pink- Life Crisis

I have been seeing the same hairdresser now for over three years and until recently, I always asked for the same thing – blonde highlights and curls. Then my dad died, and In a bid to cheer me up, my hair dresser cut my hair shorter; added in a...

Grounding: Day Twenty Six

Grounding: Day Twenty Six I spoke about my grounding experience here. Today I have felt almost like the normal Laura. I joked with the kids, made a delicious stir fry for lunch, managed an epic fail at a chocolate hedgehog cake AND maintained in a good mood throughout the...

Laura’s Not-So-Beautiful Hedgehog Cake

I was deliberating whether to share this or not, but sometimes something is so bad it’s too good not to share. So here we go… I was in a spontaneous mood this afternoon, Fridays are full of possibilities with an upcoming weekend and some lovely sunshine amid the showers!...

Laura’s Tasty Beef Stir-Fry

I love a good stir fry. It’s easy, quick and can be jam packed with goodness! I like to sneak in a few extra ingredients my picky children (and husband) normally avoid. Such as flaxseed and spinach – two “superfoods” that should be in everyone’s diet. Today, I put...
