A Date Night and a Date Truffle Recipe

Life has been crazy busy recently, and between one thing and another Mr C and I are fast becoming ships that pass in the night. So, this year we made an effort, to stop and pause, and enjoy some time together with a wee date night to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Of course, due to our schedules we had to have our date night a few days early, but that was just fine.

Life Lately, featuring Sing the Film, and Small Great Things

 

SING the Movie Belfast Premier

Brrrr, winter decided to make an appearance this past week, although my kids remain disappointed that the snow hasn’t fallen so hard that a snowball fight was possible. At one stage I thought for sure we were going to be snowed under, but the flurry was short lived, and I was able to get to work without any problems! (Darn it!)

Hello hello hello!!! And Happy New Year! I do apologise for my absence on the blog over the last while. I  do have an excuse though – I returned to work. So no more lazing around watching day time t.v. No more spontaneous outings. My life is now run with military precision.

Asda asked if I would let you know about their Tickled Pink Products in support of Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now this October. It’s such a good cause of course I agreed. Asda’s Tickled Pink campaign, part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is now in its 20th year. Every product sold includes a donation to the appeal. They have some really cute items, but if pom pom socks and pyjamas aren’t really your thing then look for the logo when buying your coca cola and crumpets. That way you can be sure some money is going to charity.

A Week at Benone Tourist Complex

I cannot believe the schools are back, and summer is all but over. What I can tell you is that is the first time in a long time, that I feel like I had a summer. I didn’t move house, I didn’t renovate a house, and I mostly just went out and had fun! All thanks to my new tent, which became my second home. The last week of the school holidays I took it to Benone Tourist Complex. It’s not an area I know well, but I was keen to explore.
