How do you unwind after a demanding day?


I had a rather chaotic day yesterday, with everyone clamouring for my attention. How do you typically unwind and de-stress after a long day?

Personally, I find solace in indulging in a delicious Chinese meal and sipping on a refreshing G&T (with a slice of lemon in it) while enjoying a thrilling disaster film. It’s the perfect way to decompress and forget about the day’s chaos.

Ideas for leftover Easter Chocolate.

Ok, so some of us (I am usually one of them) will have leftover chocolate after Easter, so I thought I’d try and come up with some suggestions of how it can be used up in other ways.

  • Melted over biscuits or cakes.
  • To make hot chocolate with.
  • Chocolate bark.
  • A homemade chocolate sauce to pour over puddings.
  • Chocolate Fondue – dip fruit/berries in it.
  • You can even freeze chocolate – make sure you do so carefully, but yes you can.

Here are some websites with chocolate themed recipes if you are still unsure.

The King’s Head.


“I’m not certain about you, but I had presumed that following King Charles’ coronation, his image would gradually become more prominent, including on currency. To my surprise, I recently learned that banknotes featuring his portrait will not be in circulation until next year.”

If you have children/grandchildren, will you be saving some of the coins/notes that are in circulation now, to give to them when they are older? Maybe you’ve decided to keep some for yourself.


Unwell, or need someone to talk to.

Feeling unwell?

In the event of a life-threatening emergency, 999 immediately. Text relay users can also call 18000 to get through to 999.

No need to worry, as there are several ways to get the medical help you need. One option is to use the NHS 111 service, which can be accessed through their website at https://111.nhs.uk/. This service can provide you with valuable medical information and guide you in the right direction for the help you require.

For those who require assistance in other ways, there are additional options available. Text relay users can call 18001 111 using text relay, 24 hours a day. British Sign Language (BSL) users can access the service through signvideo.co.uk/nhs111.

If you require an interpreter, call 111 and ask for assistance in your preferred language. Don’t let feeling unwell ruin your bank holiday – take advantage of these resources to get the help you need.

Need someone to talk to?

If so then have a look on this website https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/guides-to-support-and-services/crisis-services/helplines-listening-services/ it lists various helplines you can phone. Also if you feel more secure doing so by text, or struggle to use a phone, there are some text/messenger/email options on some of the helplines you can access too. Please seek help if you are struggling!!

Working for free, would you do it?

What job would I do for free, well that’s called volunteering isn’t it? I already do a voluntary job, and this is helping adults, most of whom have dementia or another memory issue. I go in and chat with them and help with games and other activities aimed to stimulate and interest. We talk about lots of different things, such as what they’ve been up to, what their life was like when they were children, how the world has changed, their garden or pets. Anything goes really.

Honestly, I really enjoy doing this and gain a lot from it, but for any other job I’d like to be paid thankyou very much. Jobs I’d love to do would be.


  • Wheelchair tester and reviewer.
  • Blogger.
  • Growing seeds – horticulture basic level type job.
  • Taste tester for crisps or chocolate.
  • Access advisor for shops, businesses, and public transport.
  • Secret shopper.
  • Hotel tester/reviewer.

My favourite sausage rolls.


Loads of places sell sausage rolls, or you can even make your own.

I have to admit my favourite, eat out sausage rolls are from Greggs.

If I am buying to eat later then it’s the mini ones that Tesco sell.

Yes, I have made them in the past, but prefer these and they aren’t something I eat very often so they are a treat.

One Bakers Odyssey of Trial and Error.


After stumbling upon a Twitter video clip of Lucy Beaumont’s Great British Bake Off baking attempts, I couldn’t help but ponder about your own worst baking mishap. As an occasional baking enthusiast, I often find myself grappling with the timing of my baked goods. More often than not, I end up having to extend the baking time, which can be quite frustrating. Moreover, I must confess that I am not the most organized cook, and my kitchen often looks like a warzone after a baking session.

With that said, I am curious to know about your own baking experiences. Have you ever had a baking disaster that left you feeling defeated? Or are you a seasoned baker with a plethora of tips and tricks up your sleeve? I am eager to hear your thoughts and insights on the art of baking.
