Life | A Bedtime Cup of Tea

Settling in for the night with my hubby is one of my favourite things to do. He’s tends to be an earlier sleeper than me, though, and so I’ve had to make some adjustments to my bedtime routine.

Review | The Best Tea Thermos

Safe to say I bought a lot of oranges.

Once home, I practice my new ritual – cleaning the fruit that will go into the fruit bowl. I could clean all of my fruit and veggies, and sometimes I do, but today the oranges made this task enough of a pain in the butt chore.
