The Ginger Warrior learns a valuable lesson

The Ginger Warrior learns a valuable lesson

Recently, as part of my clean eating health kick (still going strong. WOO HOO!!) I’ve been planning my meals in advance. I’m using the MyFitness Pal app to track my calories and last night, for breakfast, I decided that scrambled eggs would be my Monday morning breakfast of choice. Two eggs scrambled, on multi grain ryvita, slices of creamy hass avocado on the side and a cheeky drizzle of my all time fave – sweet chilli sauce. It was 10 hours away and I was already anticipating my breakfast with the utmost glee. Then Craigy Boy had to go and ruin it all by informing me that we were eggless – he’d eaten the last two for his breakfast that morning. By this point it was 9.30pm on a Sunday evening. Tesco and Waitrose had closed at 4pm, the co-op at 9pm. My dreams of an eggtastic start to the week were slipping away before my very eyes… Share the...
Jordans Zesty Oat Squares

Jordans Zesty Oat Squares

You just never know where you’ll chance upon a mighty fine recipe! I spend hours scouring the internet or zipping through cookery books for tempting treats when all I really need to do is look on some labels in my very own kitchen since today’s recipe comes direct from the side of my cereal box. I love the contrast of the chewy oats and sultanas and the crisper bite of the sunflower seeds. Add to that the zesty punch of the juice and rind of a lemon and orange and you’re onto a winner, gosh darn it! Share the...
How I met Craigy Boy and why I love him so

How I met Craigy Boy and why I love him so

Recently in my blog posts I’ve been highlighting some of the important men in my life. First was this post dedicated to my Dad for Father’s Day and then on Wednesday I made you all cringe and perhaps even vomit with this poetic offering to Colin Evans, my first significant crush.  There is another very important man in my life and most of you have “met” him by now – he has featured in previous blog posts, he frequently pops up on my Facebook page and he has appeared in several of my videos, proving himself to be quite the on screen natural! I mean, who could forget this impromptu tap-dancing routine?? Share the...
A love poem for my first crush.

A love poem for my first crush.

If you know me well, you’ll know that I’ve never been much of a dater. I can count on one and a half hands how many guys have sparked my interest over the years. I can only imagine my mum’s relief when, at the age of 30, I met Craigy Boy and decided it was time to make my dating debut. What can I say, Warriors? I’m a late bloomer. I did, however, have one almighty and massive crush at the age of 13. His name was Colin Evans and he was a swimmer. We met through a mutual friend and boy (yes, he was a boy) I was smitten! The first time I laid my eyes upon him and his speedos my heart skipped a beat, my breath caught in my throat and I could have sworn a chorus of heavenly angels surround his being. This is it, I thought. This is what they call being in love. Share the...
BritMums Live 2014: What a weekend, Warriors!

BritMums Live 2014: What a weekend, Warriors!

This weekend wasn’t good, it wasn’t very good, it wasn’t even excellent. This weekend was bloody marvellous!  Excuse my choice of words, Warriors, ’tis not often that I curse, yet there are just some moments in life that call for the employment of an expletive, albeit a mild one, and this weekend constitutes one of those moments. I, The Ginger Warrior, attended my first ever blogging conference, BritMumsLive 2014. I’m not a Mum but I’m a Brit and I’m (a)Live so I felt that I just about made the cut. I even e-mailed in advance to make extra sure that me and my vacant womb qualified Share the...
