Fitchef | Review

In July I was asked to review the FitChef meals and I have been inundated by questions from you all asking how we found it and if I would recommend it! Justin and I were very kindly sent the 21 day couples challenge to try, and here are our thoughts:

Arrival:
It is safe to say that the order process and delivery as well as packaging of the FitChef meals impressed me from the minute the delivery man arrived with 4 (rather large) boxes, chilled and sealed.
Opening the boxes was one of the most exciting unboxes I have done this year, and I couldn’t stop grinning from ear-to-ear at the thought of not having to meal-plan, prep or cook for Justin and I for at least 21 days! Bliss!

Midlands escape | Travel

There is no better time to connect with loved ones than over a weekend away! Our lives have been so busy this year that we found ourselves really missing our friends the Rosie’s a lot, and agreed that a weekend away was well needed. Left in the more than capable hands of Caley, a quick two night escape was booked & planned in no time, and we had something to look forward to together.

Here are some pics of our special weekend:

Fundraiser Pics | Claire Kicking Cancer

I met Claire Hodgson years ago through my great friend, Justine. A friend of a friend to me, and someone who I’ve stayed connected with through Facebook over the years and a brief catch-up as and when we have seen one another, but acquaintances nonetheless. When chatting with Justine (Juds) last week and checking in with her on how Claire was managing, we found ourselves asking each other what we could do to help Claire. If you are not familiar with Claire’s story, then you can read in more detail here; http://bit.ly/ClaireHFB but in summary, Claire was diagnosed in May this year (2018) with Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma. Since then she has had 42 tumours surgically removed, had countless scans, infections and infusions. Through all of this Claire has remained gracious, positive, and an ever-increasing strength and belief that she will kick this thing!

Very quickly mine and Justine’s WhatsApp conversation went from ideas which turned into plans. All stemming from a hope that we could help Claire in some small way. Before we knew it we had a date (short 5 days later), a venue, breakfast menu, event coordinator, and more! Donations streamed in from all angles for both prizes and for goodie bag contents, and it is safe to say we were blown away by the kindness of people. I was also contacted by three people offering to take the job as the event speaker. Our minds were blown! Justine and I were constantly swapping messages we were receiving from people who were reaching out to help. The event was sold out in two days, and had we had more time we could have easily doubled the numbers. THAT is how people wanted to show up and love on Claire, a beautiful girl who is showing us all how to live!
