Bodega Cantina Leicester - Spring Menu Launch

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to go along to Bodega restaurant in Leicester to sample dishes from their latest menu launch. Bodega specialise in South American street food and is one of my favourite restaurants in Leicester so I was keen to see the menu changes.

CATCH UP WITH KELLY #2


So here we are again, another catch-up after another blogging break. This was a break I didn’t expect or want to take. Yet each time over the past six weeks that I have sat down and tried to write a post it all felt too negative and somewhat pointless.

Even now I don’t really want to put out the content I am about to write but equally this time last year blogging proved very positive for me and I would very much like to get back to that.

Frankly my life and my blog have felt negative for some time. Let me start with explaining why in relation to the blog and that will naturally move us on to life.

My Candida Diet Experience

As many of you know I am currently on a journey to be the best version of Kelly and a huge part of that journey is to try and better manage my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). I generally cope by managing my activity and getting early nights. I was recently asked if I feel I have improved or gotten worse over the past two years. My answer is that day to day I am better but that is because I haven’t worked for over a year, if I was working I think I would be worse now than I was back then.

ME AND MY HEALTH – A DEPRESSION UPDATE AND CHANGING MEDICATION

Back in November I updated you on my life in general plus then on my diet, CFS and anxiety. (I will link them all below.) I have spent the last two months trying to find the courage to update you on my depression.

I have always been open on here about having depression I just haven’t shared much about it. That is because I find it the hardest thing to open up about and that is because it is the toughest and loneliest of my issues to deal with.

My Fear of Goals and Why This Year I am Setting Them, Blogging and Personal

Goals is a bit of a buzz word right now isn’t it. Honestly, I have never sat down before and thought up a list of goals for myself. I’ve made resolutions of course (and failed, of course.) I have even jotted down lists of things I want to do or achieve (sounds like goals, right?) Yet I had such little devotion to them that I always wrote them in pencil at the back of a notebook, so no one would find them, and I wouldn’t be accountable so then of course I never achieved any of them!

My First Year of Blogging: The Highs, Lows, Page Views and a Fresh Start

Today my blog is one year old. I still often can’t quite believe I’m a blogger at all never mind that I’ve been doing this for a year now. I still feel very much a newbie, this year has passed so quickly. Yet 2017 has been an amazing year in many ways and they are all thanks to this blog.

How My Anxiety and Fear of Judgement Has Even Affected My Hair

I have written posts in the past about both my anxiety and fear of judgement and explained how they have affected almost every area of my life. I even wrote posts about the impact this has had on the way I dressed and my relationship with make up. Now it is time for hair and of course hairstylists.

HOW TO MAKE CHRISTMAS PERFECT BY NOT MAKING IT PERFECT

Let me start by saying I absolutely love Christmas and always have. December is by far my favourite month of the year and even more so since I had my children. However, I think we now are under too much pressure to fully embrace every possible aspect of Christmas and there are so many new traditions we are meant to adopt that it has left the whole thing overwhelming and pressured and frankly we have set ourselves up for disappointment. So, what can we do differently?

Relax for a start!

A FAMILY REVIEW OF HAVEN THE ORCHARDS


Back in July we spent four nights at Haven The Orchards. The park is situated on the Essex coast close to Clacton-On-Sea. 

We have been holidaying with Haven at least once a year since our eight year old Annie was a baby and we visit a different of their sites each time. 

In this review I will concentrate on the site and it's facilities as well as telling you about the local area that we visited. I am also including lots of photos, all taken by us, to give you a real inside view.

My children have also made a three minute YouTube video showing you the site from their perspective, you will find it below and it's worth a watch.

ME AND MY HEALTH - AN ANXIETY UPDATE

Today I am going to update you on my mental health, namely my anxiety. I intended to add depression too, but the post got too long so that one will follow another time.

Me and My Health – A CFS Update

When I posted my first catch up post a week and a half ago I said I would update you on some areas in more detail. I've done diet and now it is the turn of my physical health. Namely my chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME).

I started this blog back in January to log my journey to improve my physical and mental health, face my fears and generally become a better version of me.

What the Heck Is Happening with My Diet?

I am currently aiming to improve my health and life using nutrition, exercise and stress management. My health conditions are chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME), depression and anxiety. By better managing those, confronting my fears and saying yes to opportunities I hope to become the best version of Kelly.

I started around three years ago looking to my diet to improve my health. Of the three areas I must tackle it is by far the one I have worked the hardest on. I have been motivated to change as it makes sense to me that what you put into your body effects every area of your health.
