  • The happiness this plate of food brought me just now
    1 year ago by traceysblog The happiness this plate of food brought me just now is off the charts. I needed that Oh I'm knackered and drained this week lads. No two ways about it. I've had a lot of work on this week and I feel like I've been driving most of the days then staying up late working and struggling to switch off. Just one of those weeks and being self employed brings me so much to be grateful for. About to sit down for an hour with a cuppa and mindlessly scroll through social media. The work and house stuff can wait

    1 year ago by traceysblog What a dinner. And it didn't take long to make at all. I sauteed an onion with two crushed cloves of garlic, a diced carrot and a courgette chopped up. I added a teaspoon of dried basil, a teaspoon of garlic granules and the juice of half a lime. I then added a few handfuls of spinach leaves which wilted quickly. In a pot I boiled some spagetti in chicken stock. When the pasta was cooked I added it in to the pan of sauteed veg with a large packet of smoked salmon, the remaining chicken stock and half a

Having worked at Pantos for years I didn't know what to expect as this would be my first time to see one at  @thehelixdublin  It was absolutely amazing from start to finish.

  • Im 15 weeks pregnant today how crazy is that? I
    2 years ago by traceysblog I'm 15 weeks pregnant today, how crazy is that? I genuinely still have moments where I think it's not real - it's still totally surreal. Life in general has been totally surreal for the last four months. We went on holiday, got a call while there which made us panic that the house wouldn't be happening, came home to find out we were pregnant, got the keys a month later and then began all things cyst. A rollercoaster of emotions. I'm off to have my MRI today. I genuinely don't feel a bit worried. I should be out within an
