    Healthy Lunch/Tea ideas please:)

    Ok so I'm just back from WW and its not a good result. I don't think it's helped with the stress and upset I've had at work and with changing jobs. But if I'm honest I've not done it properly since before my hols. It's time to get back on track. The thing is I'm getting bored with what I'm...

    Information: Lidl - craft stuff

    I was in Lidl today and I noticed a fair bit of craft stuff in there! There were boxes with them little funky hole punches in with various designs. Various coloured wool, nothing fancy but certainly good enough for crafts or if your teaching the kids knitting. There were craft boxes with card...
