Changing My Diet, Changing my Life

Ok I realise it's a a BIG Hollywood-worthy TITLE, a grand old statement but it's the truth, really-changing my diet has changed my life! I know, I know, I've written about my relationship and complete and utter love affair with food a lot here (along with sharing my recipes) but hear me out (again) recently I've had an epiphany, a change of heart somewhat, a shake up in my fridge and life.

A Wonderful Weekend at the Ox Pasture Hall Hotel

We're often kindly offered breaks away thanks to this blog here but they're usually a little far for us to head to for a weekend now that Oliver has started school...However, thanks to the lovely The Boy and Me who recommended us to review the Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, we found ourselves not too far from home, in the picturesque seaside town of Scarborough for a gloriously sunny weekend of fresh country air, fine food and family fun!

Autumn is Here

Yesterday was a perfect Autumnal day at the RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate. With the trees turning russet and golden, it was a beauty to behold. I think Autumn might just be my favourite season of all-a time of change, leaves mature, reach their peak, the air is still warm yet fresh and Yorkshire, my friends is at its finest.
