The weather here in Glasgow has become really hot and sunny, so I enjoyed my first barbecue of the Summer this weekend.

I marinated mini chicken fillets in Nandos’ Medium Peri Peri Marinade (£1.99, Tesco) for hours before cooking, and had some sausages and toasted marshmallows too.

To drink, I enjoyed some of the new Strawberry Lambrini (£2.99 from Tesco); which is a really refreshing alcoholic sparkling drink, and is perfect for Summer.

On another note, my Mum brought me back a really nice statement bangle, and soaps, from her holiday in the South of France.


Also, at the moment, I am changing anti-depressants/OCD medication (which hasn’t made me smile this week!). My psychiatrist has made it a really gradual change; but it still means i’ve been spending a lot of time under my duvet reading and watching TV. Cheerful chick-lit novels i’ve been enjoying over the last couple of weeks have been The Single Girl’s To Do List by Lindsey Kelk, Don’t Tell The Boss by Anna Bell and You Had Me At Hello by Mhairi McFarlane. I really recommend all of those if you want a feel-good read.
