Mrs J’s Garden Bucket List!

With BBQ season fully in swing the Jonas’s focus has shifted to the garden (or the jungle as I like to refer to it). When we moved to our new home just over a year ago, our little garden was a mini jungle. With overgrown bamboo a pond in the form of a sunken bath and loads weeds, this was a zone that I was truly staying away from.  Mr

Steam and Rye

Got the Sunday blues? Dreading Monday morning? Then do what I did and make Monday’s the new Thursday and meet with an old friend for a long overdue catch up and a few cocktails or a glass of wine. When my friend Sophie suggested meeting on a Monday night I was picturing a cafe Nero in the city and a cup of green tea, not a bar on a Monday

Camping – Sorry Glamping!

 So this weekend see’s the start of the Jonas’s making the most of the beautiful English countryside and the weather. We are Camping, sorry Glamping underneath the stars.  Being a born and bred Londoner I do have the tendency to break out in a slight sweat/panic about the lack of hot water and electricity. How will I keep up with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? (much to Mr J’s amusement!)  Having

Juicing, Fad or future?

Juicing we’ve all had a go at some point in our lives whether its to fight the post Christmas bulge, give our body some healthy green nutrients post a summer of ‘festivals’ or just to use up all the left over fruit and vegetables that are about to go off.  The last option there referring to my mum – just don’t ask her what’s inside! My only excuse for not

Fox and Anchor

When Mr J suggested going to The Fox and Anchor for dinner with our friends I was slightly a bit concerned and had the image of an old 70’s style east end pub with great food and Dave the local perched by the corner of the bar (his spot since 1979).  I was surprisingly proved wrong! The Fox and Anchor is a great pub snuggled up a side road, a

Yalla Yalla Beirut Street Food

Picture the scene: It’s Thursday night and I know there is not food in my fridge!  Mr J is away in Dublin doing a speech, therefore no chance of sending him out to do the weekly food shop. The sensible thing here would be to go home via the nearest Supermarket and make something healthy, instead of going down the liquid meal route that can so easily happen with after

Great British Summer has arrived!

Now some of you may be starting the day slightly confused as your mobile phone says one time while the microwave states another.  No you are not still hungover from last night, Mrs J can confirm that you have just traded in one hour of your precious weekend for an extra hour of daylight! What better way to take advantage of the daylight than going on a long country walk

Need a good book to curl up to? Prayers for the Stolen.

As the sun seems to have escaped us once again, out comes the fluffy winter Pyjamas and Disney Minnie mouse slippers, (don’t judge you are never too old to be a Princess!) and a good old book with a nice cup of hot chocolate. If your looking for a new book I highly recommend ‘Prayers for the Stolen’.   I heard about this book through my daily Emerald Street email and

Mrs J Recommends – Trigger Point Massage Balls

Happy Friday everyone! Now this is a bit of a random post from me but here it goes – back pain! We’ve all had it at some point in our lives and if you haven’t, well I hate to break it to you but you probably will!  Im not a doctor even though sometimes I like to think I am (via a google search)! Having discussed my aches and pains
