January Foodie Penpals – a great start to 2016

22 Jan

Sadly 2015 ended badly for me as far as Foodie Penpals was concerned after my penpal failed to send me anything. That wasn’t putting me off though and I couldn’t wait to get started again in January.

I couldn’t have asked for a nicer penpal for January!

We asked Kris for a semi-healthy Weight Watcher friendly box with a few treats thrown in.

She was so thoughtful – and even packed us some homemade marshmallows! They were so good that I immediately asked for the recipe.  

We’ve already demolished half of the box!

2016 Challenges

3 Jan

Happy new year!!

Ok, so it seems I go through phases of this blogging lark – but I’m back (for now at least) and with a new challenge.

As well as continuing the Pop Sugar reading challenge (there’s a new one for 2016!), I’ve decided to set myself a challenge every month. I haven’t decided what they’ll be yet, and some may be bigger than others.

Having reached the age of 30 without ever having never made a poached egg, I decided to crack off (see what I did there 😉) my year of challenges with that.

I pleasantly surprised myself…   

 I’d say my first 2016 challenge was a success.

  • Have you set yourself any new year challenges? I’d love to hear them!
