The ups and downs of living with a teen

My Week

This week has been a lot calmer than last week, thankfully.  It has been emotional though, as I watched my daughter say goodbye to her friends and school who she has been with for the past 7 years, when she started as a little 4 year old. I have watched her grow up from a […]

Eleven Things Tag

As I am a newbie to blogging, I have loved following other bloggers on Twitter and also Facebook.  There really are some fantastic blogs out there and I can find myself so engrossed reading other peoples blogs that I forget that I am also supposed to be writing and updating my blog. I joined a […]

Schools out for Summer

Well that is it, no more setting the alarm, no more rushing about in the mornings getting breakfast, while feeding the animals and putting the kettle on, to have my much needed morning coffee to kick start me. No more making up packed lunches and getting my daughter away from her ipad to get her […]

Simply Cook

Last week, I did 4 mini reviews on the Simply Cook range, which is a new concept in cooking.  We tried the Discovery Box, which includes 4 recipe cards, and 4 little boxes with all the herbs and spices and mixes you need. It could not be easier, they even give you a shopping list of the […]

And so it begins

Today is the last full day my daughter will be with her class, before they finish their primary years tomorrow lunchtime, and move on to their new schools in September.

Yes, it was the day for my daughter and her class from year 6, to perform their leavers assembly and celebrate in the evening with their leavers prom. My day yesterday was extremely busy, starting off with the normal […]

Quick and Easy Cheese Scones

I was sitting here this morning, having a coffee break, and was wondering what to have for lunch, as am so bored of the usual things, and decided to make some cheese scones. Anybody close to me knows I can not make scones, they usually come out as flat as I put them in the […]

Day 4 of my review

So, day 4 and the final meal from my simply cook box of meal ideas. Last night was the Jambalaya.  As with the previous meals you got your 3 pots of spices/mixes and you add your own ingredients.  Chicken and/or Prawns, Chorizo, Onion, Pepper, Celery and Rice. I made mine with Chicken and Chorizo. Once the […]
