My weekly round up 24/11/13 – 30/11/13

This week has been much better than last week for me as I started the week by going Christmas shopping with my hubby which was lots of fun and left me in such a festive mood. I do love shopping and I know that many people get stressed trying to shop at Christmas with the crowds of people and the pressure to buy the right gift, but for me, it is always fun and I also enjoyed the fact that I[Read more]

Listography – Guilty Pleasures.

This weeks listography is being hosted by Older single mum and the topic is guilty pleasures. Here is my list of guilty pleasures, which I must admit, I am rather embarrassed about! Yum!!! 1) Vampires! I am a sucker for a bad vampire trying to be good and this obsession started long ago with Buffy the Vampire Slayer in my teens when I would lust after the character Angel. As I have grown older I am still swooning over bad boy vamps[Read more]

I could not live without my fridge freezer!

When asked the question which household appliance could I not live without my first thought, like most, was none of them! But on reflection I suppose I could live without most modern items that we have now as our great grandparents once did. While I greatly admire what my nana went through during the war, keeping house with none of today’s luxuries, I am sure that if she could of chosen to use the items that we use today she[Read more]

One for the freezer

Of course in an ideal world I would cook everything from scratch but in the real world, I do not always have the time so I’m always on the look out for nice and easy dinners that I can keep in the freezer for when I’m short on time and in need of something simple. Well, I have found something perfect for that purpose in the winter months. It is a chicken hotpot from Iceland and it only costs £3!![Read more]

I’m back!!

Hello everyone 🙂 I am back in the land of blogging and I intend to stay! I must apologise to my regular readers for disappearing and not explaining my absence. I feel very bad and I also realise that it was not a good start to a fairly new blog. I fell ill with my depression and CFS (although the doctors are not sure which was the problem or if it was both as they present very similar symptoms!) so[Read more]

My weekly round up 21/07/13 – 27/07/13

The early part of this week was spent on preparing for the summer holidays. Now that we are in the summer holidays I thought that I would write a day by day account with a few photos to give you a clear idea of how we spend our summer holidays. Day one – Wednesday 24th July. Today we spent the morning cooking chocolate crispy cakes and chocolate pancakes. The crispy cakes are from a recipe that I have had for[Read more]

My weekly round up 14/7/13 – 20/7/13

My top 3 highlights of the week. * Attending FJ’s first ever sports day.* Winning another competition!* Giving the girls their week one summer holiday booklet. Attending FJ’s first ever sports day last Monday was a very special mummy moment and for once we actually had lovely weather. I suppose if anything, it was a bit too hot, but the school were very good about keeping the children hydrated and making sure that they all had sun hats and sun cream so[Read more]

My weekly round up 7/713 – 13/7/13

I thought that each week I would write a post filling you in on what myself and my family have been up to for those that are interested. The high lights of the week are; reports for LJ and CJ, our trip to the seaside and winning a competition. I got LJ’s and CJ’s end of year reports this week and I was very proud. They are both doing amazing well at school and they are both in all the[Read more]
