Lazy film reviews- IT

The huzbind and I have Odeon Limitless which is absolutely brilliant, we got it on a deal through work so it worked out at about £6 a month so we only need to go once a month to make it worthwhile. It has been underutilised since Toby has been finishing up his thesis but now…

I’m back! Wedding and mini-moon done!

So as expected I have been a terrible blogger 😦 but I feel like getting married and going on our mini-moon is a good enough excuse, but now I am going to try and post a bit more regularly now that life is kind of back to normal. My current plans/priorities are: Lose the wedding/holiday…

Vegan treats and snacks under 15 syns

We’re getting married?!

All of my posts have been food related so far, so as I promised to make this blog about my life in general this is the tale of how I met my amazing fiance Toby. Toby and I met at university, which sounds ever so fancy and proper but it was actually at a very…
