Last nights dinner

So as mentioned in my previous post about Deliciously Ella see the result below. I had to leave out the chickpeas as there was no space. Just put the leftovers in the fridge.

A few of my (recent) favourite things....

I can't believe another half term is upon us and so far this time round no hospital visits.  Today I had a fun day with my little one as Mr P was working.   We went to see Cinderella (with the Frozen short) which we both loved and then Miss LJ went for an eye test.  Happy to report that she will not be getting any glasses like Mummy and Daddy.  She was not happy and made it known to one and all at Specsavers.

Recently I treated myself to a few new things.  One was this lovely milk jug from Cath Kinston.  I love the Ric Rac design.  Definitely takes me back to my child hood.  I have also been meaning to get myself a note book that I can just doodle all my thoughts in.  Don't you just love what it says on the cover?

The final addition is the book by Delicously Ella. I saw this posted on a friend's Facebook page and I had to check out her website.  I found the book at Victoria Station one very early morning and can say I have found it quite lovely and helpful as I have now had to add liver problems to the list.  I have made some hummus so far and made us the Thai Coconut Curry.  It was delicious!  My husband was super impressed.  I will post a picture as soon as I can pull it off the iPad.  My aim with this is to live a cleaner and healthier life.  I am going to build up to it as I don't suddenly want to do it all and then the novelty wears off (I think we have all been there!)

What do you think of my new favourite things?

I added this one from a couple of weeks ago - I want to keep an eye out on how
this tree is changing with the seasons

Love this

Time to doodle away!

So happy I found this!

Happy Friday!


Happy Monday!


Progress on my blanket

I don't know if you remember that last year I started a blanket for myself.  There was about 3 months that I haven't touched it and have now started again.  I still have a very very long way to go.  The blogs that I sometimes stop by always have these photos of amazing blankets that they have made and in one way I feel inspired to pick it all up again and power on but then I start my project and I think where do the find the time and patience?

What do you think of the progress so far?

Love doing life with...

Last Sunday was just an amazing day.  I got to hook up with these amazing people.  Apart from them being my daughter's Godparents they are also very dear Friends…well I would class them more as family.

Mrs G I have known for a very long time now, come August it will be 11 years and Mr G I have know now probably for about 6-8 years.  It has been a blessing all the way.

We had a great lunch together in a coffee shop/restaurant in Tonbridge near the River Centre.  The food was amazing and the conversation was even better.

One of the reasons we love hanging with them is we can ask each other these life questions and have honest and open answers with great discussions without being judgemental or offended.  Do you have friends like that?  Aren't they amazing for the soul?

But apart from that it was just an awesome day to hang out!  I even got to test drive my new toy!  What do you think of the photos?
