1 2 1 2 testing testing…

where to start? !!!!It’s been a looooong time….This post is going to be as random as they come. Maybe a bullet point…cause my life is full of bullet points , no flow, no synergy (not sure what it means but sounds good), nothing keeping it together…

OK, first thing that comes to my mind…..

My friend Cindi in NYC , who rocks because she knows I adore pioneeer woman and went to her book signing and bought me her book , a signed copy no less!!!! Can you believe it! I still can’t ….I’ve tried 3 recipes from the book and all three have been real winners with my crowd. See evidence numero 1.

My friend Kate in dz…who is poorly at the moment and I wish I could be closer to her and make it all better for her…she is my hero you see, she is a true inspiration to me, mashallah. Please keep her and her family in your du’as.

My garden….things were starting to happen untill the weather decided to go all funny on me….sabr is not my forte you see and I bought lots of bulbs and stuff…even a cherry tree that is gonna have to be planted even though the temperatures keep going bellow zero…the thing is..is  starting to blossom in my sitting room… see evidence 2,3,4

Mia the cat fat that sat on my mouse pad….she is growing fast and only recently starting to enjoy the outdoors and dh is training her to do her business outside…he is great like that…he potty trained the girls too…

Talking about little girls and …babies….well (I can’t believe I’m thinking this…) of lately I’m thinking of procreation and maybe going for another baby ….then my mind takes charge of my heart and insides and tells me to get a grip…then I start convincing myself that what a bad thing that would be….I’m almost 39 fcol….guess it’s a midlife crisis…something to do with the biological clock ticking away….

Other things is my mind…Oh yeah I really enjoyed reading and working on ‘why am I so disorganized? sort out your stuff’….helped me inmensely and life is quite tidy right now…

I love half terms….so far I have spent 2 days in bed doing nothing…recharging batteries…got to get out of bed soon though cause we are going to my parent’s in the Basque Country and presents need buying, bags packing, hairs sorted, oh just remembered I have not yet made the appointments for the four of us…but my hairdresser is very flexible…

Things at work could not go any better mashallah…the little ones still love me and I’m still loving them and enjoying their company greatly…oh and some learning is taking place, in the planned kind of way and the accidently kind of way too…

Well, I don’t think anything else worth mentioning here has happened in my life since I last updated you…I might remember something else as i go through the pics….

( three hours later…)

Oh what a palava…this post is proving quite challenging…first I forgot to update the draft so all my uploaded pics lost. Then when I redid the pics the internet went off so had to go out shopping for our little trip and now here I am again…

thanks cindi...you are there next to morgan freeman on my fave americans list...love you
cinamon rolls a la pioneer woman...really yummy and so were the seafood pasta and raspberry cobbler... 😉
think cherry tomatoes, runner beans, onions...inshallah
think garlic...inshallah

she loves it in the under the stairs cupboard...so do I actually..quiet , warm, not enough room for kids...
she is quite at home...

Salaams y Hasta pronto,

Ines

P.S I’m never going to diet again….dieting is too negative, too punishing…i’m going to take care of myself instead….more loving and positive, don’t you agree? xxx

Now I better hit the update button before I make any more damage…bye
