A like, a link and a learning #4

Hey everyone! Welcome to your ‘like, link and learning’ post #4. 

I love this time of the week for winding down, relaxing and leaving the busyness of the last few days behind. I used to work Saturdays when I was still a journalist, and I honestly don’t know how I did it. And if it’s something that you currently do, then I salute you!

Usually by the time I get to Friday my body starts going into ‘shut down’ mode as it prepares for a lazy weekend. A bit of light yoga, a bit of recipe planning, and a lot of cooking and eating – it’s what my weekends are all about!

But after nine Valentine’s Days together it’s nice having an excuse to cook a nice meal, and enjoy a bit of time out just the two of you practising living life ‘worry free’. Which brings me to this week’s like… (more…)

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope your week has been ok. Mine’s definitely been busy, but I’m gearing up for a nice, free weekend so I can’t complain too much!

Anyway, I thought I’d try doing more of a regular blog post. You’ve probably noticed my blogging is kind of sporadic. I’d love to say it’s because I’m trying out different blogging patterns to see what does and doesn’t work, but the truth is I’m just lazy!
