A Month of Adventures {September 2017} {Blogtober #4}

We’ve now completed three quarters of 2017 and into my favourite season. It seems that everyone loves autumn too and I totally understand why although I am unsure how we’ve managed to complete 3 quarters of 2017 already

BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky – Life at Cooks Cabin

I’m going to my first ever conference in a few short weeks and I’m a little bit nervous having never met anyone that’s going before. I’m really looking forward to it, even if people may look at me weird with a Christmas jumper on when at the train! The team did a linky for us to get to know each other which is fab so here goes – I’m Sherry, and here are my answers to the linky Q’s

Your First Day at School {Ladybug Letters}

Dear J

It’s finally happened, you have started your first day at school and a new chapter of your life. The past few years have been extraordinary and I cannot believe that this week you finished nursery after 4 years there. It feels like just yesterday I was tentatively walking you into that building for the first time with a bag full of nappies and putting my trust into nursery employees I’d met only a few times before who would care for you while I went to work

Home Cooking Adventures

Since embarking on a food plan without caffeine, additives or processed food I’ve had so much energy, my skin feels good and I’m a lot happier.

The Simple Things in Life

I am forever saying it, Autumn really is my favourite season. As soon as the leaves start falling I am instantly transported back to my childhood of kicking leaves, forever finding the piles at the side of the path to kick back out and admiring the pretty colours on the trees

It’s followed through to adulthood, and I am always desperate to get out and explore this beautiful season, with the colours and the leaves on the ground making it feel magical. This weekend I arranged for J and I to go for a walk with my cousin and her daughter to some woods nearby, something we try and do every couple of months in amongst our busy lives

Cooks Cabin the Beginning – Part 1

How we met and the early days

I was chatting to the hubster a couple of days ago and realised this summer we will have been together for 7 years, that has flown by! I wanted to record our first moments as a couple and the story behind Cooks Cabin

In May 2008 one of my friends was concerned she would never meet ‘Mr. Right’ as she was about to hit an age milestone, so we decided it would be fun to go Speed Dating. I went with the intention of meeting a couple of new people but not necessarily a long term relationship and certainly not marriage! I was about to turn 23 and was living the first year of single life since my late teens and had recently moved back home following a bad break up
