‘Brrrrrrring’ & a wonky Cathedral!

Here’s my five positive things for today!

  1. Lovely comments from strangers. As I was waiting in queue to pay for some things in Sports Direct, a lady walked past and commented on what a lovely sling I had on. I had my Rose & Rebellion one on 🙂
  2. I got a WordPress ‘brrrrring’ notification on my phone to say I’d had 200 likes on my blog so far! Nice to know people are enjoying my blogging!
  3. Handmade. Violet was wearing her booties from my friend Jane today, they always get comments because they’re just lovely! I love handmade gifts!booties
  4. Evening run. I almost didn’t go running today, ran out of time this morning before going shopping with my folks so was going to put it off. But then my husband said ‘why don’t you go this evening?’ so thats what I did. I don’t usually go in the evening as I really don’t feel like it by then but actually it was quite a lovely time of day to go! The cathedral looked good in the setting sun, I managed to snap a bit of a wonky photograph (whilst running!) with my phone! Great reflections on the pool.Lichfield Cathedral
  5. Inspired take two. In yesterday’s post I mentioned that a friend of mine had been inspired to start running.. Today my husband donned his trainers and went for a run! He hadn’t been for about two years! He’s completed a few half marathons in the past so isn’t a stranger to running, he reckons we should do a 10k together soon – eep!

Last minute Mum, baby wearing & Hairy Bikers!

  1. School Easter service. I’m not religious but I do love to see the kids singing along at the Easter service! Violet enjoyed it too though she jumped every time the clapping started!!
  2. Google. As usual I’d left the Easter bonnet till last minute and didn’t manage to get out to buy one. So I trusted good old Google to rescue me! Google found me the Good to Know website with a template for an Easter bunny mask! I think Xander makes a very cute Easter bunny don’t you?!Easter bunny mask!Also thank you Google for finding me tips on how to make rock hard sugar soft again! We shall have banana cake!
  3. Thanks Dad. Yesterday Dad was my taxi since our car is stuck in the garage being fixed! Much appreciated!
  4. Babywearing. Love using my wrap to carry Violet, it’s so snuggly and useful to have my hands free, especially on the school run! Its a Girasol Earthy Rainbow from LoveToBeNatural.co.uk. I also have a Rose & Rebellion full buckle carrier, but I tend to use that when I’m out and about in the car. Today it came in extra handy since I needed to post a large item and as I mentioned I don’t have use of the car. So I put the parcel on the pushchair and pushed it to the Post Office whilst wearing Violet! Mission accomplished!
    Ready to go!

    So comfy!
  5. Healthy cooking. I used to love a take away but recently I don’t seem to enjoy them. They’re so unhealthy and I just feel rubbish eating them! It can’t do you any favours! I spotted this recipe for sweet ‘n’ sour in the Hairy Bikers dieting book so thought I’d give it a go. It’s so quick and easy and delicious! Tonight I’ve tried it with turkey instead of chicken to make it slightly cheaper. Have tried a couple of other recipes from their dieting book and they’ve been very good! I don’t watch much of their TV shows but my son calls them ‘the funny men’!
