One of my greatest pleasures in life, other than laying on my sofa and morphing into the comfy little potato I am, is going out for something to eat. Generally, I will always favour eating in a pub to a restaurant, I’m definitely more of a low-key, comfy venue lover rather than something a bit more swanky, so when I was asked to pop along to The George and Dragon pub in Mountnessing I jumped at the chance.
We are living in a world now that is much more aware of what we are putting in our bodies. Organic produce is on the rise, veganism has blown up in the past few months (there’s now more vegans in the UK than there are ginger people!) and our understanding of all the additional nasty bits and pieces that find their way into our food and drink is at an all time high. But did you know that a lot of the pet food available on the market is also full of junk? I discovered a few years ago how bad some of the more well-known pet food brand names are when you get down to the nitty gritty and, since then, I’ve actively looked for more health conscious options to feed my menagerie.
Staying in is the new going out, there’s no denying it. Whereas I used to live for Friday and Saturday nights, getting dressed up and heading out to throw some shapes and neck shots with my friends, these days a good night consists of getting cosy on the sofa and watching something decent on the TV.
It’s the first payday weekend of the year and you can hear a collective sigh country-wide as everyone finally has a bit of cash in their pockets. With most of us getting paid prior to Christmas it felt like a long old month, but all of that’s in the past now and if you’re planning to spend some dollahhhhs this weekend and treat yourself to a night on the town DO I HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU.
As I touched on in my post the other day, the whole ‘New Year, New Me’ isn’t something I’m carrying in my mind as we march steadily into 2018. Sure, I want to improve and streamline my life, but I can’t help but feel that entering a new year with a I’m-not-quite-good-enough mentality won’t do me any good. So, I’m not doing it – it’s more important to learn to love myself than it is for me to squeeze my backside into a size 8 pair of jeans again.
