Lazy Tomato, Basil and Mushroom Sauce.

Today has been way too busy to properly prepare and organise a full on home cooked meal so I raided the cupboards and fridge and threw together a sauce. Simple, delicious and ridiculously cheap!

Today I feel discouraged.

'Doesn't sound like a sentence with much weight to it until you consider the whole picture. #blog #mentalhealth #letstalk #RT The one where after years of suffering from both depression and anxiety you dust your self off and start a project for fun.

Welcome to Parentville.

'Parentville is a place filled with tired growls and coffee breath being unleashed from two parental dragons. It's a paradise hidden in layers of fog created from stress, self-doubt and loneliness.
