Wow, it’s been nearly a month since my last blog post. I wasn’t intending to have a break over December, in fact I’d actually planned (in my head) that I would try to get some more recipes created and online. But, as we all know, the festive season is so BUSY! Good busy, but busy! Friends come back to their home town, catch-ups are in order, Christmas parties are happening left right and centre, and then there’s the downtime when you just want to eat your body weight in food, lie on the sofa watching re-runs of Home Alone, or have a marathon Pictionary session with your family. I hope you all had a wonderful Festive season!

I’ve totally enjoyed the time with friends and family over the last few weeks, why does it always go by so quickly? Now it’s January and it’s all over for another year. January brings a wave of resolutions. Most will no doubt be broken by then end of the month, some will keep to them well. I try to avoid making any, as I only end up breaking them and then feeling guilty. Life is not about feeling guilty. Life is about balance. And greens, lots of greens.

This smoothie is a great way to stick to your New Year’s healthy eating resolutions if you made any- or just a great boost of vitamins and nutrients. Packed full of goodness, ready in seconds, this will you keep you energised for the rest of the day. Think of it as a post-Christmas cleansing smoothie, to help you glow from the inside out.

This week started on a bit of a downer. We got news on Tuesday that our current house buying venture had fallen through. The seller changed their mind and decided not to sell. It felt seriously unfair and totally sucked. But, there’s absolutely nothing we can do about it, so I’m trying to stay positive and listen to the constant ‘It obviously wasn’t meant to be’. I do try to stick to the attitude that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it’s a little hard to swallow though. But hey ho.

However, any house buying ventures are going to have to take a backseat for a few months. As we are OFF ON THE ROAD. The road of festivals. As I mentioned before, Charlie has set up an awesome Glamping business – Dreamcatcher Cabins – which he’s now ready to take to some festivals this summer. We’ll also be working for another great company who do a similar thing. I’m going to be the cook for the hungry staff. Making sure they’re fed and watered well, keeping those bellies happy and all cheeky grins stay grinning. So, recipes might be a little haphazard for a few months. I’m going to try my best, adapting my boat-kitchen skills over to caravan/tent-kitchen-cook-extraordinaire.

I’m counting on my little caravan oven to be as lovingly, tempramental-yet-somehow-still-works as the boat oven. That if I whisper sweet nothings to it (what, none of you talk to your oven?!), it will bake me that perfect cookie, or doughy loaf of bread. It’s going to be an adventure, please do join me!
