If you do any kind of writing, whether it be for work or pleasure, then no doubt you have come against writers block once or twice. There have been a few times for me over the last 3 years where I have sat and stared at the screen, the cursor seeming to mock me, willing the words to come. Once I have started, the words flowed so I want to share with you the things I do when writer’s block has come to stay.
Feminism has been in the spotlight a lot lately. There appears to be two camps. Those who believe that we have a long way to go, and those who think we’ve already made it.

However the issue that I want to talk about is firmly in the ‘we still have a long way to go camp’.
Ask anyone with a mental illness or someone who works in the mental health field which is the worst time of the year and they will all tell you the Christmas/New Year period. Admissions to hospital increase, completed suicides and suicide attempts all increase during this period too.
The following recipe first appeared in Summer Table by Jodie Blight. She has also provided the image to accompany the post.
Last week, as part of the Christmas Gift Guide I shared a cookbook called Summer Table. Jodie has also agreed to share a recipe from the book here today. Paul and I gave this recipe a whirl on the weekend and it was delicious. It was super easy to make and perfect for the hot weather. To purchase Jodie’s book Summer Table and keep up to date with any new projects (I’ve heard that there is another cookbook on it’s way) head to her website!
I received a $100 voucher to use at Ozsale. As always, all opinions are my own.
Have you ever window shopped online? I often find myself on sites, pretending that money is no object and putting things in my cart like nobody’s business. You know those shopping sprees where the winner gets to rush through the store, putting as much into their trolley as possible? That is my dream.
