Philips Health Watch Review..

I did not make any New Years Resolutions this year. No point really as I never stick to them. I just made a promise to myself to try and be more active. Get to the gym more, keep up my running and try to avoid the sweets in the cupboard. Sounds perilously close to a resolution then!! This way though I won't feel so guilty if I do not keep my promise!! Crafty...

Most of all; My time management needs work. There never seems to be enough hours in the day. If I can manage my family, dog, house and blog, it should leave me plenty of time to exercise. Right!?

Where's that personal organiser?

A Snowy Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop...

Happy Friday.

Welcome to a snowy weekend blog hop.

About a hour ago  I jumped out out bed and opened up the curtains up wide to see if the snow had arrived. And it has!! I was looking for it all day yesterday as we had been warned it was on its way. ❆

Only a dusting at the minute and the children are not to pleased they have to go to school. They would have loved a snow day. 

Now lets just hold tight and wait and see if it settles. They would love to be able to make a snowman when the come home from school.⛄

I like to see the snow for a little while, then I like to lock myself indoors and drink hot chocolate to keep warm!

What I Wore : Wollaton Hall Cross Country...

On Saturday we had a day out at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham. My youngest 2 were running cross country. 

It is such a lovely place here,  I just wish the sun had been out.

 Instead it  was a really cold and miserable day so I wrapped up warm as I had a fever earlier in the week. 

Apparently there is a lot of deers that wonder around in the field behind me but we did not get to see any today, just one in the far distance. 

I am looking forward to taking the children and Mollie a walk in the summer to go and find some.

Banana And Avocado Smoothie..

It is hard to know what to call this!? A smoothie, a treat or both!

It is so creamy and yummy I ate mine up with a spoon. Perfect meal for breakfast or lunch itself. If you want to make it into more of a smoothie add little bit more more milk.
