My Favourite Porridge Recipes

So I thought that it was about time to share my biggest love/obsession as I am very passionate about breakfast and more specifically, porridge!

With all this in mind, I wanted to share my favourite, shop bought, snacks with you.

Exercise: Friend or Foe?

This surely seems like an obvious question, friend right? But as a person who likes control, routine and structure, it can and did become my foe. I was managing to deal and live with this quite happily, I thought, but when I was told that my exercise regime was hindering our chances of getting pregnant, things had to change!
