February’s idea list.

Welcome to February’s idea list. There is a different idea for each day of the month and then at the end of the month I will post a new list for March. Feel free to follow the list to the letter or just pick and choose the items that best fit your life style. The whole idea of this list is basically to give you some ‘ideas’ to get more organised and have more fun in your life. I always love[Read more]

My groovy update 23/01/14 – 29/01/14

I have decided to merge my groovy updates with my weekly round ups into one post a week as I felt that they go well together and I also felt that I was continuously writing updates as I am planning on starting wobbles Wednesday next week as well. So from now on I shall use this post to talk about events of the pervious week, how I’m progressing in my plight to get my groove back and any aims that I am[Read more]

40 by 40 part two!

Here is part two of my 40 by 40 list which is a list of 40 things all together that I would like to achieve by the time I reach 40 years of age. If you missed part one you can have a look here. 21.Visit a maze. I have always wanted to visit a proper maze like you read about in mysteries. I have visited maize maze’s before but I want to visit a proper one. When we went[Read more]

40 by 40 part one

I have been reading a lot of blogs lately and I have noticed that a few of them have a bucket list of things that they would like to do before death. A bucket list is something that I have often thought about doing mostly since watching the film, but to me it just seemed that with no proper date in mind I would probably write the list and then completely forget that it ever existed. However, I have now found the[Read more]

My weekly update 20/01/14 – 25/01/14

I have had a really good week this week. I have finally given up the cigarettes and although it has only been 6 days, I feel really positive and as if this time it will be the time that I succeed. I haven’t been up to that much as the first few days are always the hardest so I decided to have a laid back week and I also needed a rest after all the birthday celebrations from last week.[Read more]

The prompt – week 2.

I was saddened by this picture. In July 2012 this picture was taken at our local hospital where I was misdiagnosed with emphysema. The doctor was very stern with me (actually he was quite rude) telling me that I had not looked after myself and if I carried on as I was then I would not see aged 40. Luckily I was later told that I do not have emphysema but I should use the experience as a warning to make[Read more]

Pinata birthday cake

Piñata birthday cake. I recently made my daughter a piñata birthday cake and I thought that I would share with you how I did it. Ingredients. 200g Stork or similar. 200g Caster sugar. 200g Self-raising flour. 4 eggs. 10g baking powder. 30g Cocoa powder. Chocolate fudge icing (I used Betty Crocker but you could make your own) vanilla frosting (again I used Betty Crocker) Sweets to hide inside. I used peanut M&M’s, Cadbury’s mini eggs and Haribo, but you can use[Read more]

My groovy update.

I have had quite a good week and I am pleased with the progress I have made so far. Last week I set myself three aims for the week. The first was to have a heart to heart with my husband which I did and although we have a lot of work to do, the good news is that we both want to try and get the marriage back on track and neither one of us has completely given up. We[Read more]

The sick kit!

Being ill is never nice and for me, it is even worse if it is one of the kids that is ill. When you or someone close is very ill with a sick bug, you can very quickly find yourself up to your eyes in vomit and running around the house like a headless chicken trying to find bowls, clean sheets, tissues and so on.   This happened to me the last time that my little one was  ill with[Read more]

My weekly round up 12/01/14 – 19/01/14

On Monday 13th January it was Laurens 16th birthday. We had already gone out for a meal with the family the Saturday before as we were treated by my dad so we had already celebrated. I made Lauren a cake as she does not like shop brought cakes. It was just a sponge cake filled with apricot jam and iced with chocolate fudge icing. On the Monday I got up early to make pancakes for breakfast and she opened her[Read more]
