I have decided that I am making this a tradition. I am going to create a book list for the year. That’s not to say that I will actually read these books by the end of the year, but doing things like this has reignited my love of reading and I can’t wait to get started into these gems. There may be book reviews there may not be, one thing I have learned from 2020 is not to box yourself in, so if you are here welcome and happy New Years, what are you currently reading?
I made a list at this point last year (click here), although I didn’t manage to read all of the books that were on my list; I did get through 22 books in total, so I am calling that a win. I put all of my progress on Good Reads so if you are interested you could always find me there (click here).

I’ve been on and off of Slimming World for about 5 years now and in that time, I have cooked some cracking meals. However, there is one thing that I have missed during my time on Slimming World and that is a good old-fashioned takeaway, or rather I think I have missed the feeling I … More My Favourite Slimming World Fakeaways
