I’ve read loads of these bucket list posts before, and I always think that they are a great idea and I should write one! So after turning 39 just over a week ago, I got thinking about all the things I would like to do before I turn 40. So here is my bucket list for my 40th Year.
After the success of my slow cooker chocolate fudge recipe, I thought I would mix it up a bit and try a different variation. This white chocolate and cherry version is just as simple, and just as delicious. It is also a great gift idea for someone special!
This is a really simple tutorial to make your own twine heart. These twine hearts are a great rustic home decor, and I have several dotted around our house. They would also be ideal as a wedding decoration, or make a great gift for a friend or loved one.
OK, so I’m pretty sure this isn’t a groundbreaking statement and that I’m not alone. We all know children can be irritating sometimes, and they know how to push your buttons. Recently however I’ve realised that there are a few things my kids do, or don’t do, that really irritate me! You know, properly wind me up to the point of near explosion!
For her 5th birthday party the other week, Isla requested a My Little Pony rainbow cake. Always up for a challenge, I obliged and tried my best. I decided to carry on the rainbow theme for some of the party food and created rainbow cupcakes, cake pops and rainbow coloured fruit skewers to balance all the cakes on offer!
Today is Isla’s 5th birthday, my little baby, my first born, all grown up into a fully fledged little girl. If i’m honest I feel quite emotional about it, i’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I’m a complete stress head at the moment and i’m emotional about everything. Or maybe it’s because I feel time is moving to fast, she is growing up to fast. I love seeing her blossom into the amazing little girl that she is. Maybe I just wish I could pause time, just for a while, to savor every moment.
I, like most people this time of year, am trying to eat a bit healthier. This is a great breakfast idea that seems to be fashionable right now. Mainly because it’s quick and simple, can be prepared the night before, and gives you a nutritious breakfast that will keep you full up till lunch. I did my overnight oats with raspberries, topped with natural yoghurt and a sprinkling of sunflower seeds and goji berries. If you would like to try this simple recipe then read on!
Today marks the start of a new year, and my one year Blogversary! Exactly a year ago today I published my first blog post. I have learnt so much, but still have so much more to learn. So instead on reflecting on my blogging year I thought I would concentrate on the year ahead and focus on my blog ambitions for 2017!
