Slimming World Burger

Summer is fast approaching, and as always I am having the eternal battle of trying to eat a healthier diet. It doesn’t come easily to me. There are many days that I quite simply fail at it.

And although I don’t attend slimming world, I find many of their recipes and ideas sensible and logical. With that in mind, here are 5 kitchen gadgets I’m loving right now.

Summer flowers

I always feel compelled to start of by saying hello,  and then commenting on the weather. What is up with it? Some tabloids have suggested we are in for a record breaking hot summer, but with so much rain we shall be flooded out. Knowing our weather, that actually sounds plausible!

Why I Want to Win A Family Trip to Dubai, and You Could Too!

Dubai

Hello, hello. Have you been enjoying the sunshine over the last few weeks? It sure has got me thinking about summer, and how I am going to fill those long lazy months. Personally I love a holiday. A holiday to me is an experience which offers a respite from my usual routine. A time to forget about the dishes and the messy toy box, and just enjoy life with the people I cherish most. Of  course now that I have young children I have to make sure that I have really done my research before booking a holiday. And I have been researching a family trip to Dubai. I know; it’s perhaps not the traditional choice, but I am convinced that Dubai could be the most perfect holiday destination for my little family.

Daisy from garden

This daisy photo, pretty much sums up my past week or so. Life has whizzed by in a bit of a blur, but the sky has been blue, and the plants are practically growing as you watch them. Lewis turned 6, and I know every Mother says it, but I really can’t believe the time has gone by so fast! Sometimes I wish I could turn the clock back. Do some things a little differently. Make some smarter choices. But then I wouldn’t be where I am now. Enjoying these sunny days. Watching my boys play, and grow and bond. And sharing some of the best bits with you. Here are this week’s #LittleLoves
