Another week of meal planning, and lots of potatoes

We have a busy week coming up, both for me at work (where I’ll be in the office on Thursday as well, despite usually working from home on Thursdays), and for us at home, as Andrew’s parents are coming to visit and take on the childcare duties whilst Granny Annie takes a well deserved holiday. […]

A little bit of organisation goes a long way

Hey, not sure you remember me. Lots has happened since I was last in your inbox, including GDPR (did that actually stop any of the spam in your inbox?!) and a scorching hot summer (too hot? I could do with a nice cool breeze, personally). Lots has happened in the It’s Not East Being Greedy¬†house […]

Happy New Year 2018

Hey, it’s me! Remember me? Tracy from It’s Not Easy Being Greedy? The greedy blogger with a young baby? Last time I wrote anything was last October, so I can understand if you have forgotten about me … Truth be told, this motherhood and working lark leaves little time for blogging. I have had the […]

Week 44 – beautiful Barcelona

Last week I spent a couple of days in Barcelona for work, and unfortunately the rain followed me there from London. Luckily, I spent most of my time inside: either in the office or, more interestingly, in various restaurants in Barcelona – the team there certainly enjoy their food and I wasn’t complaining! When I […]

Week 43 – on the road to recovery

I think one of the only things that is worse than you feeling ill is when your helpless child is poorly and there is nothing you can do about it. Ioan’s feverish, clinging misery from the last couple of weeks was hard to cope with, as the only thing that soothed him was to be […]

Week 41 – not quite as healthy as planned

So last week was my supposed return to healthy eating. Things didn’t go entirely to plan, although my homemade breakfast (granola) and lunch (cream of sweetcorn soup) helped keep me on the straight and narrow at work. Unfortunately I sampled a few too many of the millionaire’s shortbread which I made for last week’s GBBO […]

Weeks 39 & 40 – post-holiday healthy eating

Does anyone go on holiday and not over-indulge just a teeny bit? I always do, and although that over-indulgence is usually balanced out by lots of physical activity, this time it comes on top of a period of unhealthy snacking to combat the sleep deprivation caused by little Ioan, so I am really feeling the […]

Week 38 – holidays are coming

In just a few days we’ll be heading off on our holidays, and whilst I am really looking forward to exploring Centerparcs, I can’t help thinking about how our holidays have changed since the arrival of little Ioan. We always booked our big holiday at this time of year and my Facebook memories is full […]
