Nice times report

The weekend wrapped up over night and I for one am feeling pretty good about embarking on the week ahead. I did some nice things over the weekend and I thought I’d share those with you. Maybe you are looking for some nice times inspiration?

On Friday night I went to the movies with a girlfriend and we saw Lady Bird. Holy cow it was such a nice movie. It’s a coming of age film about a girl finishing high school in Sacramento and she calls herself ‘Lady Bird’. Continue reading

Suspicious pancakes

Wednesday is the one day of the week we don’t have to be anywhere at a certain time. We take things slow and I make sure I sit and talk and play with the kids as they seek my attention. I’m being mindful to enjoy these slow Wednesdays because come next year I’ll have a preppy on my hands and there will be somewhere to be every week day.  Continue reading

Nori roll salad

One of my favourite things to eat are nori rolls. I bloody them. Being home a lot with the kids means that I don’t have the opportunity to eat them often so I came up with the idea a while back to make salads that are based on nori rolls. I’m sure this is not an original idea. I think it literally came to me one day after I made nori rolls for the kids and I couldn’t be bothered rolling any for myself. Continue reading

The man is quite the marketing genius and I am also very fond of him, so I am really very happy to receive his books as gifts. They are always rather lovely and I have a couple of go-to recipes in each and refer to them when my meal plan needs a bit of jooshing.  Continue reading

Mondays and baby led weaning

Mondays are one of my favourite days of the week. The weekends are busy. Even when we have nothing on, they are busy. There is swimming lessons and catch-up cleaning and park visits and mowing and markets and meal prep and baking and bike riding and games where we all play together, and sheet washing and sprinklers to run through and naps to be had. See, busy. Continue reading

The little blog that could

So for the last little while I’ve been thinking about getting back into blogging again. But between you, me and the gatepost I’ve been a bit anxious about it. *screws up nose*

My mind kept thinking that I should only blog if I have a sexy website. And adorable photos. And a super cool tagline that’s just the right amount of hipster-cute.

And my heart would go, “but’s that’s not me.” I’m a bit messy and unpredictable and emotional and I have trouble turning the TV on let alone making a website work! Continue reading
