Simple Tomato Sauce

This is a very simple, basic tomato sauce I make. Its nothing fancy and it’s not going to win awards but I like to use it on things like pasta and halloumi. It’s also nice to use in a vegetable soup, just add a few more veg of your choice and blitz it up! This…

Prawn Pasta

This is such a simple and easy meal to make. I make it for me and Mr Ormerod if I can’t be bothered cooking or if I don’t have much time. It literally takes as long as the pasta takes to cook. *no picture yet as I only use my own photos of my own…

Honey Chilli Chicken

The Child of a Soldier

It’s that time of year again where the UK joins together to remember those who lost their lives fighting for our country. We wear our poppies with pride and some of us attend our towns parade. We stand and remember and listen to the words and poems’ spoken. The last post is played, we stand…

When did we decide to try for a baby?

I get asked this a lot. I always thought it was a strange question to ask somebody, until i started questioning my readiness for a family. I have been with Mr Ormerod for almost 10 years. We met in a night club I used to go to every Friday night. It’s a well known club…
