This moment…

A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savour and remember

A girls night in…

it happens all the time..when one of my friend’s husband is away …a party at her’s is sure to follow…bring a dish…dressing up optional…no kids definitely …only breastfed babies…lots of laughs…plenty of catching up…I’m always in the kitchen…the subparty is where it all happens if you ask me….

Half Term…

so far…the good bits only…and in no particular order…

dd12 is doing her usual holiday gig of baking non stop…

plenty of gardening of course…the last two days were simply lovely but winter was back this morning…dh bought me a fig tree…he is so romantic like that…’cheaper than a bunch of roses’…his words…

some thrifting…I’m really happy with the blue with white flowers skirt…I wouldn’t normally pay £8 for a second-hand skirt but this was the right size, length…quite a expensive one …anyways it’s mine and I love it….

more thrifting today…this time baby was the lucky one…I love the peasant dress and the shorts are cute too…and this girl can never have enough books…

fried eggs and mushrooms for a carbs free breakfast…not bad…

dd12 is trying to teach dd2 to use watercolours but she is not an easy pupil…she insists on using water only…so stubborn she is ….

How is your half term so far?

Yesterday…

we had lots of fun with dear friends..A simple outing , full of laughter, close to nature, plenty of exercise for the little legs and a simple meal with plenty of good conversation…oh the things we older mature women talk about…saving the planet, our kids, their futures, our concerns for them, hair colour, travel, our kids, holidays abroad, books, our kids, men, movies, our kids….

where is aunty?
where is aunty?

P.S   my so called friend says I’m not a yummy mummy……just because I wasn’t wearing hunter boots for the outing, and because we didn’t go to an organic café and we were not holding cups of a well-known brand coffee in our hands….what does she know!!!

Today….

 

today-is-the-day-L-VEWyik

I should be planting the tomatoes outside as they are almost flowering in my kitchen windowsill but I’m going out with a friend and her grandkids.We are doing the whole ‘yummy mummy’ gig…feeding duck and a spot of lunch…pic should follow…

I have a teenager in bed because she is fasting to make up last year’s and school is too hard on an empty stomach…I’m laid back like that….

I have another teenager in bed because she is on study leave and no exam today and she is too laid back to study for tomorrow’s chemistry exam…I know she knows what she is doing..and anyways I’m laid back like that…

I’m going to try fit in 15 minutes of abdominal exercises…I got this cool app on my tablet that takes you through a routine which tackles the mummy flaba…It might not happen but I’m laid back like that…

Today is vegetarian day for the family meal…tortilla de patatas y salsa y salad….not for me…I am carbs free…

Today I’m wishing you all a good day…try a laid back one…they help with stress levels and all the rest we put ourselves through…

What kind of day are you planning to have?….And Allah is the best of planners.

Salaams y hasta la vista,
