#120 Pineapple Juice

Did you know that pineapple juice is good for sore throats? I hadn’t heard of that before. I haven’t tried it but if my throat gets any worse, I might just give it a go. I only found out yesterday from being privvy to a conversation had by my husband (still haven’t thought of a…

#119 Hot Water Bottle

In bed with my hot water bottle. Its got a furry soft cover and honestly it’s warmth is exquisite. Today I decieded to cook something different. There were some chicken breasts in the fridge so that was my inspiration. I remebered making Delia Smith’s Chicken Paprika and toyed with the idea of that except using…

#118 Retro Sunday

Woke up feeling worse and headed straight for the shower. Enough can never be said about how wonderful it is to have access to proper plumbing and and lovely hot water! I’m not one for taking these things for granted. Then it was coffee time 🙂 Today I got out the Nintendo bag. It’s where…

#117 Party quietly in my Pj’s

Saturday night. I’m still not better, but I know I will be eventually, so that’s a plus. I haven’t been very active today, got a few things done and then just had a rest. Got busy watching videos on YouTube, had a look around the web, did no cooking at all. Luckily I’m not the…

#116 Books and Budgets

I finished reading The Break by Marian Keyes! Can’t believe it’s over 😉 It was so great. Luckily I have one more book from the library left to read 🙂 This one is called, “The Seafront Tea Rooms” by Vanessa Greene. First time reading her, and I have to say I’m excited. I think it’s…

#115 Resting

Still hibernating at home with the kids, keeping our germs to ourselves. Still reading and just taking care of what I can because I’m starting to feel pretty yuk. xo

#114 Chicken Soup & Happiness

Today was the perfect day to make a huge batch of Chicken Soup. Best thing when you have a horrible cold or flu. Also let me say, that I do not want the Marian Keyes novel to end, ever! I’m enjoying it so much! So I’m leaving you with a picutre of my soup and…

#113 Novels and Chocolate

The perfect partners 🙂 Mama has left the building and flown home. She did, however, leave behind lots of little Cadbury solid Easter eggs. These little delights make her leaving a little less sad. Today I finished reading a novel called “And One Last Thing” by Molly Harper. I loved it! It was an entertaining…

#112 Immunity Down

Today I when I woke up, my sore throat and congested head informed me that I have got what the rest of my family has. Not fun. Therefore today’s outing to a massive shopping complex in a galaxy far, far away, was not a good idea. At All. The three youngest came along as they…

#111 Making Sense

I like riddles. I try not to think in riddles though. If I find myself doing that, I know I need some time. Time to let go of whatever is confusing me. Time to do other things so that I don’t get stuck in my thinking. Sometimes all I need is a little time and…
