My review of the book "Rocking your Role" by Jenny Garrett - week one

I was given this book as a gift by a good friend.

I read the blurb at the back, turned few pages to give a cursory glance and put it at back of the bookcase.  Yesterday,  as I was leaving my house to sit for an hour waiting for my children, I looked for a book to ease my boredom...... This book caught my attention.

At the waiting room I opened up the book and started reading.  I have read a lot of self help books in my time.  Not all of them worked for me but some clearly did and this one I can definitely say is one I like to put in the later group.

It has a 12 week Action and Reflection cycle. I am only on the first week of workout. 

I will let you know how I get on.

In the mean time, this website
will give you a clue as to what I am about to find out !!!

New Sandwich filling, an accidental discovery

A new sandwich filling I discovered while I was about to clean the fridge:

What you need

  • At least two days old bread - 2 pieces
  • Half-empty jar of pickled jalapeno pepper pieces(that you bought for your daughter's pizza making at school)
  •  Almost full jar of pesto("its basil mum not wild rocket, you know I don't like the taste of basil")
  •  The oil left in the jar of roasted peppers(the one you like so much and when the last of the pepper is gone you don't know what to do with the oil..that one)

Method: toast the bread lightly, pour some of that lovely oil(depend how much you like roast pepper infused olive oil, in my case a lot), get a spoon and get some of that pesto spread on to the toast. Decorate with pieces of jalapeno peppers(not too much if you don't want it to bite you back..they are hot !!)

Sit back with a cup of black coffee and enjoy !!!

(p.s Now I need to I patent my sandwich filling)

Mothers day

Today is mothers day
Happy Mothers day to all mums
Every mum is special
To their children
I myself am a mum and I have a mum
So I see it from a daughter's side and a mother's side
I am lucky to be both
I had a lovely day
I got homemade presents made with care and love
I gave presents with love made with care by others
All in all a good day for all

Snow in 2012

It snowed twice so far in February.  For about a week it was so cold almost every night temperatures were reaching -8C.  
 Fresh snow...street view
 Dad pulling a sledge with his son so early in the morning...
 snow heavy on the branches
 snow made the trees look white...
