Project 365 2015 Week 9

So half term is over, everyone say bbbooooo!! We are only 2 months into project 365 but I found for a couple of weeks I was finding myself becoming bored of it. However these last couple of weeks moments seem to have just popped up and I've found myself needing to capture them.

I don't know about any of you but I really don't like it when the kids go back to school, the house just seems too quiet and it's then that I find myself considering home schooling!!

The girls were excited to get back though, straight back into learning, Gracie went into the golden book for good work and Freya got 10 out of 10 on an accelerated reading test, go girls :)

Hubby finally had a bit of time off work and I think you'll see from the photos that a certain toddler was rather pleased to have him around.

The big moment of the week was when Gracie got her ears pierced, I actually asked a question about ear piercing over on my facebook page, peoples opinions on the matter vary a lot.

Bad weather called for a lazy Sunday so the girls were camping out in their tent.

Introducing Rachel Medhurst's Latest Novel… Pisces

Reading books is my main hobby so I am very lucky that I get to review so many on my blog. Another plus to this is that I get to read a lot of debut novels. One author that has been up and coming over the past year is Rachel Medhurst. She already has two book series' under her belt and I've been privileged enough to get the first sneak peek at the cover of the latest book that she's been working on and now I'm able to share it with all of you.

Barbeque Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

I love meatloaf, I think partly because it was something I grew up with, I remember eating it a lot when I was younger however because I'm still trying to be healthy with my eating habits, I wanted to come up with a recipe that was still full of flavour but didn't contain so many calories/fat. Immediately I thought of turkey.

This is a meat that is packed full of protein but contains a lot less fat than other meats and the way this dish is cooked means that any fat doesn't get soaked into the meatloaf like a traditional one would.

January's Degustabox, What's Inside?

I can't believe that I've being reviewing Degustabox for a year now. I have to say I am yet to be disappointed by one of their boxes, ok not every item is to my taste but it certainly encourages me to broaden the range of food and drink that I consume, I'm more open to trying new things.

This month I think has been one of my favourites. It seemed to go along a healthy theme which was perfect for me because I am trying my hardest to stick to a healthier diet in an aim to lose a bit of weight and to generally feel better about myself.

So what was inside this months Degustabox?

If I Fall, If I Die Book Review

if i fall, if i die by michael christie
It is no secret that I love books but you will have probably also have noticed that I tend to stick to the same genre but I do like to delve into the unknown sometimes. Recently I was sent the latest book from Michael Christie to review. If I Fall If I die is a tale of growing up but not quite as we know it..

Will has never been outside, at least not that he can remember. And he has certainly never known anyone other than his mother, a fiercely loving woman who drowns in panic at the thought of opening the front door. Their little world is comprised of only the rooms in their hom, each named after various exotic locales and filled with Will's art projects.

But the confines of his world are beginning to close in on Will. Despite his mother's protestations, Will straps on a protective helmet, and ventures outside…

Weekly Weigh In 24.02.2015

It's weigh in time again, I have to admit I've been scared to step on the scales. My official "time of  the month" finally appeared on Saturday and it's still lingering now and this plays havoc with both my body shape and my weight.

So what's the results?

I have lost a 1lb since last week but seen as I'm still bloated oat from period I'm hoping to see better results next week. Will update this post with my measurements as I am going to buy a tape measure today.

I think I've become addicted to exercise, not a day goes by where I don't do something, even if it is just going for a walk with the kids. I'm a week into my kiqplan and I'm enjoying the workouts and the daily tips.

Now food, I'm still struggling with this. I love it but I hate it at the same time. With my kiqplan I have the chance to record my daily calorie intake and it has been interesting to see just how much I'm consuming, or in my case how little. Turns out I need to actually consume more calories but this leads my brain to think a chocolate bar or cake wouldn't hurt then.

Read With Me 2015 #8

Hello readers, welcome to this weeks Read With Me. I feel I've got my reading mojo back this week, with hubby on night shift I've had the evenings to myself so I have had time to curl up with a good book.

read with me
I was starting to think I would have time to add my own personal book reviews but like buses I've suddenly had 6 book reviewing opportunities all coming up at the same time.

I'm now the best mum ever because I got the latest Jacqueline Wilson book through to review so keep and eye for my thoughts on that as well as an added bonus of my eldests review within that post.

So what have I been reading recently?

One To Hold by Tia Louise, part of a series of books, I actually decided to read this as it was free on Kindle but I was pleasantly surprised and plan to purchase the other books.
