Dear Mister Mojo aka Beau, I know you don’t always read the blog, but if you happen to come across is in the next few days this is for you. I know that we as a couple and as a family have had a few difficult times, but we got through it and I hope we continue to do so. Yes I agree I am stubborn, a pain in the arse & overly guarded at times but thank you for understanding why and carrying on. CHAMP! You stepped in and became a step-dad to Eldest very early on, it was a move that we were terrified of to begin … [Read more…]
Here are my children. Eldest is holding on to Mojo an hour after our homebirth. It was a lovely moment to see Eldest so excited and surprised. To quote her ‘I know you said there was a baby in there, but it really is a baby!!!!’
I didn’t post anything yesterday about your birthday…. As it’s a day late Happy Unbirthday!!
This week has been a funny week for me. Some times I get sad, I want to say depressed but hey, that comes with stigma, one I don’t much care for. Mother has depression, she has had it for years, she takes pills. She also takes spells in which she does things she can never take back and ‘forgets’ about them. I’m not sure if she does, one day I sat and told her some of the things. Things like chasing me up the stairs hitting me with a plastic rod for closing and opening blinds because it had unhooked itself. Things like, pinning my younger brother to a wall … [Read more…]
After winning, Eldest was over excited to get started one something, so I nipped over to the Bakingmad.com site, after all that is where everything came from… Found this Mini Choc Chip Muffins and so we began… I haven’t posted the recipe as it is on the site, I have however got pictures! Happy baking face Silicon cases, random sizes – as is the wimsy of the Eldest Mixing in progress Super Monest Mixing… apparently In with the choccy chips Doing a little rising in the oven Multi- Magic Muffins. She had a great time making them, and they are super simple. Fun times.
Beau decided to enter a competition on BakingMad.com and won, he didn’t tell me he had entered either. So the winning was even more of a surprise. I have since signed up to the Baking Mad Club for more recipes & goodies, looks like I might just need them. We knew we had won a little while ago… but we were unsure as to what we had one, what is a years supply of baking goods? Well, I had no idea. Van arrives. Man explains this is the first half, second will be delivered in 6 months. Inventory: Billington’s : Dark Muscovado 10 x 500gLight Muscovado 10 x 500gGolden Caster … [Read more…]
I am going to be honest, I jumped on the Fifty Shades of Grey bandwagon, and devoured the book in one evening. Slightly perverse as it is, I enjoyed it. So I went out and got the second and third book. I don’t care if I have bad taste in books, in facto I know I have trashy taste in books 😉 I wasn’t 100% sure what it was about before I picked it up, I had read someone say it was like Twilight but dirty. I can see that, I can see the possessive nature of that pesky Edward Cullen in Christian Grey, the hazardous trippy up, perfect and doesn’t … [Read more…]
