Ten Things Mollie Learned From Puppy Injections...


Ten things Mollie Learned From Puppy Injections:

Mollie:
  1. They are not nice but need to be done. 
  2. I was very good and did not make a move but they made me so ill.
  3. Wish I had not begged mum for dinner after them.
  4. They made me very hot.
  5. They made me sick everywhere.
  6. I had to find somewhere nice and cool to hide.
  7. Under the curtain of the shoe rack was lovely and cool.
  8. Yep this is now my favourite hiding place now.
  9. Took me days to recovery and get my strength back.
  10. I have to have another on Wednesday but then ok for another year. Maybe this one will be better!?!
Me : 

Aww bless her, she is so lovely and I really felt for her.

ALDI Special Buy Waffle Maker Review...


We love breakfast in our house. Cereals throughout the week and fresh pancakes, croissant or waffles as a special treat at weekend. Lots of people say it is the most important meal of the day so ideally we like to eat something that will fill us up, setting us up for the day ahead.  We try to keep extra healthy adding natural yogurt and fruit too!!

Last week ALDI asked me if I would like to try out their waffle maker. It is on Special Buy from today. Fresh waffles whenever we want them, yes please.

The machine comes in a bright yellow colour and will brighten up any kitchen. So off we ( I ) go making everyone some yummy thin waffles...

Waffles Recipe:

Ingredients:
  • 250g Flour (plain)
  • 7g Baking powder
  • 20g Caster sugar
  • 5g Salt
  • 475ml Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 30ml Vegetable oil
  • Toppings of your choice. 
  • We went for yogurt, banana and defrosted summer fruits.



Method:
  1. Weigh all the dry ingredients, place in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Break the eggs into the milk and beat the mixture.
  3. Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients. 
  4. Add the oil and mix all ingredients together until all the large lumps have been broken up. 
  5. Do not over mix otherwise the waffles will be heavy when cooked.
  6. Pre heat the waffle maker and spray with oil (1 cal spray works well).
  7. Pour 3/4 of a cup of batter into the waffle maker and cook for 3-4 mins or until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
Serve hot with you favourite topping: 
  • Maple syrup.
  • Sliced banana.
  • Summer fruit mix.
  • Natural yogurt.


    Good to know:

    • Cooked waffles can be frozen and heated up in the toaster. 
    • Unused batter mixture can be kept in a container in the fridge for up to 2 days.


    About the Aldi Waffle Maker:
    • Whether you’re a beginner in the kitchen or a contender for a Michelin star, Aldi has a fantastic range of excellent quality, great value bakeware and kitchen accessories for cooks of all abilities.
    • In stores on 2nd July and 9th July respectively, while stocks last.
    • If you fancy mixing it up in the kitchen, Aldi’s Waffle Maker or Brownie Maker (£9.99) are just the ticket. 
    • Available in blue or yellow, both are simple to use with non-stick heating plates and can stand upright for easy storage. 
    • What’s more, the waffle maker makes heart shaped waffles, perfect for a romantic breakfast.
    What I think of the ALDI waffle maker:

    I think this is a sweet little waffle maker that makes cute thin waffles. We all enjoyed eating them and layering them up with fruit, yogurt and yummy Maple syrup. I think we will get lots of use out of the waffle machine, and it is a real bargain for £9.99. Importantly it was straightforward and quick to clean, so can see it getting plenty of use. My eldest has said he may take it back to Uni in September. Best race down to Aldi to buy another!!

    As with all ALDI special buys though you have to get in and buy one early as they will sell out quickly.

    About this post :

    I was kindly sent this ALDI waffle maker to review. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I did not get paid for this post.

    Red Buses And Pound Shop Banta!!


    Over the weekend, I had a wardrobe freshen up. Anything I had not wore for a long long time, got cleared out. At Christmas I mention I was going to try and wear my best clothes more often. Then realised I had only wore my favourite London Buses dress {which my eldest son brought me as a present} once!

    10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog Puppy...


    Mollie our new and adorable Border Collie puppy is definitely keeping me on my toes. 

    We have only had her a few days, yet it already feels like she has lived here a lot longer. 

    How clever are Border Collies!?! First day we had a few toilet accidents in the house then on only day 2 she started whining to be taken outside! Maybe because we bought her from a farmer and was used to being outside? (The Vet said farm puppies are easier to toilet train.)

    Crispy Crunch Fruity Snacks...



    I have totally wore myself out with all the exercise I did last week!

    Not much water, fruit or veg as I was constantly thinking about grabbing a high energy snack and then onto the next run/ spin class/ circuit class/ bike ride lead me to being so weak and knocked off my feet this week I have been forced to rest.

    Rome wasn't built in a day!

    I have learned the hard way! I know now that getting fit is about getting the balance right too. Workout, refuel, drink plenty of water, eat fruit and veg for vitimins and get lots of rest.

    One day I will get it right!!
