Read With Me #17

Hey lovely readers. Welcome to this weeks Read With Me. So half term and the sunny weather combined meant that I didn't get round to reading an awful lots last week.

read with me
The one book that I did read and absolutely fell in love with was Here's To Falling by Christine Zolendz.

This is an emotional story which mixes love with other difficult subjects including drugs and rape.

I will admit to shedding a few tears reading part of it and I'd highly recommed others reading it too.

My favourite post which was linked up last week comes from Yet Another Blogging Mummy.

The review of children's book, The Bigfoot Escape was great and especially loved the added drawing from her son.

Now onto the link up…

Project 365 2015 Week 17

Back to school this week and the sun seemed to disappear as the holidays ended so there are a lot more indoor pictures for this weeks project 365.

It's been a strange week. The hubby and I decided to upgrade our phones, I now have my trusty iPhone back but I think in true karma for us spending a bit of money on ourselves for a change, the boiler decided to break, bbbooooo!!! Luckily we have cover with Homeserve and I can't fault them, they sent an engineer out an hour after us ringing and had the part ordered the same day then fixed the day after, phew.

My poor husband had a hospital appointment cancelled, this cost him a night off work, hate that everything comes down to money but it was so annoying and now we have to wait for another appointment to be booked!!

The girls settled back into school nicely, although I think I may have jinxed the weather by sending them in with their Summer dresses on.

Dear Daughters

Having four daughters, I can't help but worry sometimes about how things will be for them as they grow up. I think about situations/phases that I went through when I was growing up and it got me wondering just what I'd say to my younger self, how different things could have been if the future me could have had a few words in my ear.

The more my brain mulled these thoughts over, I realised that really it would be the same advice that I'd like to offer my own children now. So I'm writing an open letter to my girls in the hopes that one day they will read it and maybe appreciate the words that I've wrote.

Simple Frozen Yoghurt Recipe

I used to skip eating breakfast. Many people told me that it was the most important meal of the day but I chose to ignore this advice until this year.

Since starting on my healthy eating journey back in January, I have made a concious effort to eat breakfast every morning.

Sometimes I find myself in a rush with little time to prepare and eat anything after sorting out the kids so I've found a great way to counteract this is by preparing breakfast the night before. Overnight oats quickly became my go to breakfast but having this day in, day out started to become a little bit tiresome so I began to search for other alternatives.

Frozen yoghurt seemed like a good option. Only three ingredients needed, takes very little time to make and because you pop in the freezer, it lasts a long time. The recipe I'm sharing lasts me 5-7 days depending on how hungry I am and what fruit etc I decide to serve with it.
