Project 365 2015 Week 35

We're nearing the end of the Summer holidays and the sun actually managed to shine for a couple of hours but the rain has meant lots of indoor photos for this weeks project 365 which I do apologise for.

Day 235

A week of rain began, I love watching how well my kids can play by themselves, their imaginations are incredible.

What To Do With Myself Now The Kids Are Getting Older?

Next week the girls go back to school and Layla will start doing more hours at playschool now that she receives 15 free hours each week. This is a huge help to us not having to pay for playschool right now as the husbands wages have gone down yet the bills have predictably gone up. It was also a huge reminder of just how fast my children are growing up!

Frozen Banana and Peanut Butter Sandwiches

I love bananas and I love peanut butter so what could be better than combining the two to make the perfect snack. I love putting both ingredients together in sandwiches or on slices of toast but in the Summer months I rarely fancy either so an alternative for my favourite foods was needed, introducing the frozen banana and peanut butter sandwich.

Hippy Dinners Book Review

I finally got around to joining Britmums book club, hooray. This months chosen book was Hippy Dinners by Abbie Ross, her memories from a rural childhood….

hippy dinners

In 1972 Abbie ross's cosmopolitan parents move the family rom Lodon to rural North Wales, exchanging a town house in Islington for a remote farmhouse on a hill. Abbie's Liverpudlian grandparents - dedicated followers of Liberace, sleek in scented mohair and patent leather - are sure tey've lost their minds.  For Abbie, though, the only cloud on the horizon is the nearby hippy commune and its inhabitants. There are worrying signs that this is the sort of 'better life' that her parents have in mind.

Things I Didn't Know About Fruit and Vegetables

Last weeks Ben and Holly Little Explorers theme was all about fruit and vegetables and I have to say I was rather surprised at some of the facts.

Did you know there are over 1000 types of apples? There was me just picking between red or green apples.

Apparenty lemons contain more sugar than strawberries. So tell me why do they taste so sour?

Eating a lot of onions can make you sleepy. Perhaps this is what I need to be eating in the evening to help me get to sleep.
