Trooper Buddy

I love getting my Quirky Kit, but I love mixing it up with other bits and pieces. The spotty background here is actually two paper bags from @theideaowl on instagram and the cork heart was from Tiger.

Planner goodies

Today I  got my first subscription box from Mrs Brimbles. The box is designed for planner lovers and this months theme was unicorns. I was pleasantly surprised at the contents, some of which was designed by Anna herself. Here's a peek at my goodies. Not all are pictured.

Memorandum Monday

Sian over at from high in the sky does a 'what you've learned this week' thing called Memorandum Monday and this week I'm joining in.

Something I have learned is that i still don't like avocado, even if they're disguised in fancy smoothies (which is supposed to hide the taste). They're grim and spoil anything the touch. So Mr Avocado, we're parting ways.

December Daily.

Or, I Tried it Once But Won't be Doing it Again.

I'm sure I blogged about my lucky win from Simple Stories? I won't a bunch of goodies for doing December Daily. I was so excited! I had never managed to complete one before so this was really exciting.

But I didn't actually enjoy it. I felt unsure how to fill those boring days where nothing actually happened. I felt pressured to finish it. I didn't like being behind.

So this year, no December Daily, just plain old scrapbooking.

Burst of creativity

Miss E went to the childminders today for the first time in ages (Christmas, illnesses etc) and its amazing! Even better, little Miss R is having a day full of naps for once! So after I stripped beds, steamed floor, did everyday housework, I actually sat down with my pile of quirky kits and managed two layouts. I'm not 100% on the ear muffs one but can't think what to do.

A happy picture

Nothing is better than the sight of cloth nappies drying in the sun.

The daily battle

KEvery day is the same battle. Breakfast is fine, she's always saying she's hungry but come lunch or tea (actual meal times) she refuses to eat. It's driving me insane. It's no wonder she always says she's tired and has a tummy ache. Help mummies!

P.s we don't normally have what I call 'freezer tea'.

Your Small Fitbit has to be almost undone so it doesn't bruise ... Your three and a half year of is constantly grumpy... And your converse are eating your socks....

Toast that looks like a cat makes it all better.

Am i worth it?

In keeping with the whole 'healthy January' thing, I've been looking at Fitbits. Are they worth it? Will my life change by having one?

Oh hi 2016!

Nice to see you 2016. Did you have a pleasant trip?
I'm not one for resolutions. I get too bored. But whilst looking on my Instagram feed ( @skalovingeek) I saw a post by @simplegreensmoothies which was 30 smoothies for 30 days. Not a diet, just a healthy addition. And I decided to do it. Day one was yummy and tropical and did I say yummy? Days two and three involve grapefruit.... I've prepped them but a little dubious.
