Aled's 30th Birthday

So Mr Roberts turned 30 on Monday. We've been together since we were 19 and I can remember it like it was yesterday winding him up that he was in his twenties when he turned 20. See, I have to get as many jokes in as I can because I'm only 4 months behind haha. So here we are a whole ten years later and I'm pretty sure that he'd rather me be winding him up about being in his twenties rather than his thirties! To celebrate his birthday, I had wanted to book a surprise trip away to Barcelona but I think I'd have been overwhelmed with anxiety and my Mum and Dad would have been ready for a fortnight abroad after having the kids for 3 days. So instead, I booked the Doubletree by Hilton in Chester for a night away.

SW Chicken Risotto

Chicken Risotto

This is my go-to tea when Aled's on nights and it's only me I need to cook for. I love risotto and this Slimming World version doesn't even feel like you're 'dieting'. Here's the recipe for one serving...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I cannot believe how quickly 2017 flashed before my eyes. Apart from Mum having breast cancer (which was obviously dreadful but thankfully that's all behind us now and she's fighting fit), my anxiety getting the best of me and struggling with the full time working mum life balance, it was a good year for us. We enjoyed the last of my maternity leave, watched our baby girl grow and develop into the character that she is, celebrated Elsie's first birthday and Ollie's fourth, Ollie started school, we sorted out mortgage out and managed to wipe 7 years off it (boring adult life admin win right there), both got new cars, holidayed to Center Parcs, lost weight (and put half of it back on over Christmas, but that's ok right?!...), started this blog and had lots of fun family days that are good for the soul. So, what about 2018?...
