Blogtember Challenge Day 20: A Day in the Life of Rosie

Hello honeys :)
It's a real dreich day here, it's raining outside, a little chilly, & the skies are so grey :/ We do however, thankfully, have the Blogtember Challenge to be getting on with, organized by the lovely Bailey Jean at Brave Love.  Today's prompt is:  Sept 20th: Share a day in the life. Pictures, timelines, stats, however you like.


I've been thinking how I can describe an average day in my life for you, without causing you to nod off for a nap :) My life is, on the face of it, quite dull really, but I do love it.  OK, so fetch a pillow and blanket just in case, and here we go :)

Blogtember Challenge Day 19: For what it's worth honeys x

Hi Honeys
Hope everyone is well today. I'm exhausted, having stayed up to watch the results of the Independence referendum.  So today we've reached day 19 of blogtember, organized by the lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love.  Today's prompt is Sept 19th: If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?


All I can offer you honeys is what life has taught me, so far anyway :)

We only have one life, and everyone always feels like they have all the time in the world. We don't. Time passes so, so fast. So, here it is, for what it's worth.

Blogtember Challenge Day 18: Sometimes it's the journey not the destination :)

Good morning honeys,
An early start today, as always, and today it's back to the blogtember challenge, organized by the lovely Bailey Jean at Brave Love, this has been such a lot of fun :)  Today's prompt is: Sept 18th: Tell a tale of traveling, a city or country you've been to or a favourite vacation

Blogtember Challenge Day 18 Travel

This is a tougher prompt than it might seem honeys.  I don't travel, you see.  I like to sleep in my own bed at night. Bit boring I know but there it is :) Everything I need to make me happy is to be found within the walls of our happy little home.  In the scheme of things, I live my life in a very small goldfish bowl, and that's fine by me :)

Last year however, we took a trip to Edinburgh with three dear friends and had a fabulous time in spite of.....

Homemade Tuna Mayonnaise Sandwich Filling

Hi honeys
It feels so odd not to be posting a Blogtember entry for the first time this month. It's been such fun and I'm looking forward to taking part in the rest of the month, but I have no idea how to make a Vlog, maybe someday :)

So, having gotten used to posting each day, I thought I'd post one of our kitchen favourites :) Tuna mayonnaise is something I used to buy pre-made at the supermarket with my regular shop.  It's a great favourite with both hubby & I, equally at home as a sandwich filling, or as a toast topper, or even, as I did last night, used as a side dish with a baked potato :)

Tuna Mayonnaise Only 3 Ingredients

Tuna Mayo is so easy to make & far cheaper than buying pre-made too.  I started making ours fresh some time ago, with any leftovers popped into a lidded container in the fridge where it will keep for 3 - 4 days easily, it's super yummy & makes a great quick snack.  Far healthier too to have a healthy sandwich as a snack, with the filling ready to grab from the fridge, than to munch on a chocolate bar.
