What Living Abroad Has Taught Me About Body Image

Moving to Spain for a few months was a bit of a no brainer – the children still young enough to adapt but old enough to make lasting memories, the schooling affordable, our business can be run from anywhere and the UK was experiencing one of its more dreary winters. Decision made, we envisaged beach […] Read more…

Apparently You Can Be Poorly Without Knowing It

I’ve been a little quiet on the blog front this last week or so for two very different reasons. Firstly a happy reason. My parents were here for one whole week! They live abroad and we don’t get to see them as often as any of us would like. It was truly a lovely week, […] Read more…

Deliciously Ella Courgette Fritters

I’ve been on a little break from my Deliciously Ella healthy eating experiment due to being in Valencia and then Paris…and then working twice as hard to make up for being away!

This is my Deliciously Ella Experiment #4 – Guacamole. See my previous experiments here, here and […] Read more…

Deliciously Ella Sweet Potato Wedges

I have been pleasantly surprised by my families willingness to embrace my Deliciously Ella clean eating experiment. I would say my girls are fairly normal eaters – being seven and two years old they can’t quite fathom why we don’t just have cake for dinner! Chips are a firm family favourite so I was intrigued to see […] Read more…

Iron Infusion For Iron Deficiency Anaemia

I have Iron Deficiency Anaemia. My levels hover around HB 110-106 Ferritin 11 at best, 4 and below at worst. There will be people out there with far worse levels, there are many more with far higher. It has been said that I have naturally low levels – being a young (ish) woman with awful […] Read more…
