 Pregnant women sunbathing

One of Mr G’s lovely cousins is getting married this Summer and I cannot wait. At a recent family gathering,  as we talked about dresses and themes, she reminded me of the excitement and the irks of  life-changing events..

Berry Inspo

Wild Berries

My latest ‘throwback Thursday’ picture (below) pays homage to the day of my 20 week scan; when Mr G, my sister and I arrived at the hospital separately, all wearing ‘berry tones’.

Chicken Katsu Curry

 

It’s taken me about 15 minutes to get going on this post.. every time I get my hands into ‘type mode’, I stop, stare at the screen and get mesmerised by the soft fluffy rice ‘ball’.. I imagine the taste of the crunchy, salty panko breadcrumbs.. and oops.. I’ve done it again..
