Tucked away in the corner of my living room at first then stretching out onto the coffee table and beyond, I have been whiling the days away filing favourite paper pages in to folders for future use and books for now. Trying to stay warm, the tigers are snuggled up under blankets (Marlo) and radiators (Wally). My husband and I are doing a three day juice detox, and it seems Marlo is concerned about the huge basin of apples that has appeared on the kitchen table, wondering what is going on. We have wanted a juicer for ages and after one of our friends got one, a juice craze has fast spread through our circle.One day over, we were not hungry just a little waterlogged, and looking forward to a new recipe to try this morning. The biggest problem for me is sugar, so this is a good way to cut it out and down for good. Cold turkey then just treat weekends. The juicer is proving to be quite an entertaining addition to our kitchen. In a bid to go back to basics though and keep our worktops free, we have dispensed with the Microwave and toaster. Better to try these things now out of the blue don’t you think? I am so rubbish at new years resolutions.
