Blogmas Day 25: Operation ZZ

I can happily report that Operation Zen Zone (ZZ) is going far better than I expected.

Balmonds Bath & Body Oil and Skin Salvation moisturiser Can I be honest? I wasn't too optimistic about the products not breaking me out in a rash. A lot of things do. Especially those things that promise not to. My skin can be extremely sensitive - especially around that wonderful time of the month.

Today has been lovely. And I promise it's not only because I got to eat some fudgy warm chocolate cake fresh out of the oven but also because I got to spend it with my sister, niece and nephew. Always so nice to see how excited my little girl is to see her aunt and cousins too. © Kin Unplugged It was also a wet, grey and very British day in terms of weather but I'd rather not go into that! My sister made some chocolate fudge cake (recipe here) that was oh so soft and just...just right. She intended…

Christmas/New Year 2019/20

What’s your favourite holiday movie? I don’t have one.What’s your favourite Christmas colour? I don’t think I have one but if I was forced to choose, it would be red. Do you like to stay in your PJs or dress up for Christmas? A bit of a mix. PJs for daytime and dress up for evening. If you had a million dollars, what would you do during Christmas? Go away to a steaming hot island with my family and some of our extended family. What do you like to do on your Christmas break? Relax and eat. Eat a lot.…

Compensair: Compensation for flight delays and cancellations [AD]

We do a fair bit of travelling as a family. However, if you count in the amount of travelling that hubs has done back and forth between the UK and Germany because of work, he's done almost 5000 miles of flying in about a year. Not a big deal to most people I'm sure but think about how much longer it all seems when your flights are delayed or cancelled.
