Hatherley Manor Hotel? They should call it HEAVENLY Manor Hotel! An unforgettable spa stay outside Gloucester.

I realize that I may have given in to _slight_ hyperbole in that title there, but once you hear about this trip you’ll know why I’m happy to be overly complimentary about Hatherley Manor.

Banana bread 2.0 – Winter Lockdown Edition (VG, oil-free)

Do you ever get that afternoon slump, when you’re really struggling to focus and you feel like you are ready for bed, even though it is only 2-3pm?

Happy Sunday everyone (or Monday, depending on where you are in the world)!
