Cucumber salad and a healthy update!

You must have all thought I completely forgot about it. Forgot about the 12 weeks program and forgot about trying to lose weight and forgot to keep you in the loop on the whole thing. Well….

Summer pudding

It’s been a while since I last posted and actually right now we were supposed to be in France. I will spare you the details, but Tom was admitted to the hospital in a hurry thursday last week. Scared the shit out of me, so to speak, but it looks like all will be ok. It did mean that we…
