Project 365 Days 229 - 235

Seems like it has been a mixed weather week for most people.

I don't like to think that Summer is over but even I've noticed a drop in temperature.

Packing has continued this week so unfortunately a lot of our week has been spent indoors, not that the kids seem to mind.

And on that not here's this weeks project 365 round up…

Day 229

Today we went school shoe shopping and just happened to pass the Lindt shop, well lets just say we couldn't resist.

I Think I'm Turning Into My Mum

Back in the day I always swore I would never be like my mum.

Come on you all said it too didn't you.

Trouble is I'm noticing more and more that I am saying/doing those things that I was adament I'd never do.

Here are five things I bet you've noticed too :

1. You start muttering things under your breath.

We always said my mum had a friend named Arthur, all the time she was calling him , "oh for…."

2. Those sayings that used to really annoy you as a child, it's like torrets they keep popping out.

Baked Onion and Courgette Frittata Recipe

Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients and can be used to create many meals for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I've tried frying them, scrambling them, boiling them and poaching them but I hadn't attempted to bake them until now…..

Read my latest recipe to see how I created my baked onion and courgette frittata.

Keeping Active With The LeapBand

You may remember a couple of months back that I wrote a post introducing one of the latest products from LeapFrog, the LeapBand and I promised you guys a review

Well I'm happy to tell you that we have been putting the LeapBand through it's paces and I'm finally ready to share with you all what the girls and I made of it.

For those of you that haven't heard of the LeapBand yet, let me give you a little more info :

It is the first wearable activity tracker for children, designed to not only get them learning but to keep them active whilst having fun too. It combines virtual pet play with physical activities and even doubles up as a watch!!

We received the LeapBand in pink but it is also available in green, blue and orange as well, making it suitable for boys and girls.

July's Degustabox, What's Inside???

It is that time of the month when I tell you exactly what I received in my monthly Degustabox.

I do love a good surprise and I have to say I think this may have been the best box to date.

So what was inside??

zeo drinks

Zeo Drink £1.29 each or £4.29 for four : Avaialable in three flavours : Peach and Grapefruit Burst, Citrus Crush and Lime Zest. These carbonated drinks are not only tasty but refreshing too. They leave this strange yet welcoming tingling sensation in your mouth after drinking. A perfect choice for those hot Summer days.

N is for ….. Nails

The past couple of weeks of the Summer holidays have been a bit rubbish if I'm honest, I've spent a lot of time packing up our house ready to move and I feel like I've neglected the girls somewhat.

So last week I stepped away from the boxes and decided we were going to have a girly day.

We had fun with arts and crafts, making dresses, bags etc.

Baking was done, lots of yummy cakes to eat.

And of course no girly day is complete until a bit of pampering has occurred.

This meant that N stood for nails.

Read With Me #33

We're nearing the end of August, Summer holidays almost over and I can't believe I only just found out about the Mythical Maze Summer reading challenge. Good job we decided to visit the library last week!!

read with me

Is this something your children have been joining in with??

Talking of challenges I'm only 18 books away from completing my Goodreads 2014 reading challenge.

I've read 132 books so far this year.

My favourite book from last week had to be Ugly Love from Colleen Hoover, I don't think this woman can write a bad book!!

Some brilliant posts linked up last week, a big thank you to everyone who took the time to link up and comment.
