I’m quite excited about sharing this recipe. As I’ve said before, I’m not one for recipes, or weighing and measuring too exactly so I was so excited when I managed this banana bread (or I suppose it could be cake) without scales and missing a few major ingredients ……
As I sit here in silence, I don’t even know whether to write about my “hard” journey, others may not agree. They may be thinking how is your journey so hard, you have a husband who comes home at night, you have healthy and happy children and these things I am so grateful for you wouldn’t believe. Maybe I’m not as strong as I once thought I was, or maybe I just have a temper than I can’t control and these things throw me over the edge, where usually I would snap and go and shut myself in a room for a while, it’s impossible now…….
I meant to post this months ago when I first found out that it was so cheap and easy! So I had almost completely run out of food when I first made this, but it turned out that I had the ingredients for it, and most people probably would….. I’m always looking for inspiration and I’m not one for planning amazing meals and taking lots ……..
I feel like this post may get a bit airy fairy from my side with the subject “you are the artist” but here goes.
Without focusing too much it makes me think of Lana Del Rey’s latest album. She’s become a slight obsession of mine, she was introduced to me by a close friend about 7 years ago and I’ve loved her ever since. It was a shock to me, seeing as I’m usually into soft rock, 80s music and a bit of Maddonna, she’s haunting I suppose has seen me through some less than shiny periods. In the song I’m thinking about she sings “you are the masters of your own fate, the captain of your own soul” and I remember thinking as I was listing “God that’s powerful and shit she’s right.”
Blogging has taken a turn for the worst since I got back to work. Not because I enjoy it any less, but because my time is so precious I feel like I owe it all to the kids.
Actually I’m loving work, I’m loving the fact that I’m using my brain again and that I have a full lunch break to read my book! I mean it’s a dream! It was definitely the right time to go back, plus I’m learning a lot too so it’s really good for my mental health. I think having a baby completely removes you from normality for such a long time that you do need to sort yourself our or focus yourself in some way. Everyone’s different but also kind of the same.
After our days away I realise there is so much of Scotland that we really don’t know. This is a beautiful farm, with our beautiful cottage tucked away 10 minutes from the nearest town Annan. There was no need to go to Annan other than for our food shopping, although they mentioned that we could order to out house and not leave at all!
We were well prepared although like normal we never make any plans. The plan became investigate.
So I’m having a bit of an 80s 90s vibe just now, so I feel like I should share as I’m loving it.
TV – so we started watching ER from the start and it’s awesome! I was too young to watch it right from the start before and I’m so glad that I’ve decided to go back, sometimes going back and watching the old things can be cool too and perhaps
Everyone will have big things to overcome as a new monther, some may seem small, but everything is big at this new stage. It’s a time that your whole life is turned upside down and you lose yourself a bit, my hurdle is about feeding, so if you’re a new mother, there will be a hurdle....
I suppose you could call this an adventure. My 30th birthday.
One of my closest friend started to organise my birthday, offering me many suggestions on what I should do and as she manages her life and work life, she organised me. After deliberating on all of her options I fell in love with one and felt it was the most practical for everyone that I wanted there and although it wasn’t lots of people, I would have been upset if any hadn’t been able to attend. So the decision was made – Glasgow....
