Hauls, bargains and what I've been making

I'm going to start this week with a couple of bargain hauls. Our Co-Op supermarket is closing down and the premises will become a B and M Bargains. It's sad because it's in a great location right next to the train station and it could have been a fantastic store but unfortunately it's been left to get more and more run down over the years and no money has been invested in it. It's frustrating when we go to other places and see the new style Co-Ops and see what it could have been like. I feel so sorry for the staff and also the post office who share the building is now under threat and have a year to find a new location. As a result of them closing a lot of the stock has been sold off at clearance prices. I picked up coconut sugar, cacao powder, maca and goji berries that were around £1.50 each. These will be very welcome in our breakfasts over the next few months. My second haul was a online order from Raw Living . Raw Living is Kate Magic's online raw

Treats, bargains and less waste!

It's been a busy week. As well as my paid job I've been volunteering at the bookshop, attending a preview at Salford Museum and Art Gallery where I have a piece of art work in the 2018 open exhibition and having my first speech therapy appointment to learn techniques to help with my chronic cough (not going well so far but I'll persevere). I've also been having trouble sleeping so I made sure to take some down time to rest at the weekend, catch up on some Netflix (series 2 of Glow) and indulge in a few treats. Matt was away playing at a festival on Saturday and I was struggling with fatigue so this little noodle pot was perfect for lunch on Saturday. We don't usually buy stuff like this as they are expensive but we picked some up when they were on offer for camping a few weeks ago and then didn't end up having them. Unlike other noodle pots there are no weird ingredients, they are gluten free as well as vegan and the pots are recyclable. Another Sat

Hello! I am still alive. I haven't blogged for such a long time but thought I would pop on for an update and to say hello. I do miss blogging sometimes so you never know I might just resurrect the blog. When I last posted I was just about to do a 5 day raw food course with Kate Magic . I had a great time and have just booked onto another 3 day course with her later in year. Life is still throwing some health challenges my way. I have recently been diagnosed with asthma and am on daily meds for that and also vocal cord dysfunction . I'm going to be seeing a speech therapist for the vocal cord dysfunction in the hope that learning some breathing techniques can help lessen the attacks. I'm still dealing with chronic cough too and have come off morphine after a year and a half. Some days are better than others and the horrible fatigue I was getting is better in this warm weather at least and I'm feeling positive for the speech therapy. But let's get onto the good news
