The Last Week

3 May

I had full intensions all week of catching up with my blogging but it’s been one of those weeks.

Having not actually been up to much really at all it’s a bit of a mystery to where the week has gone but my old ‘buddy’ has been sapping my time again recently, mentally I have been having a wail of a time but physically my body just won’t keep up.
Back ache, hip ache moan moan moan. Lets leave the moaning there! I only moan to then point out the positive.

The positive in this is that I’ve been doing stuff. I’ve been fighting my way through each day doing something rather than nothing and my driving force is my personal plan I set back in January of achievements throughout the year. I blogged about this in February under the odd title Exam Day.

In My House Planner I set myself personal goals to achieve before becoming a Mama (well trying to become at least). It was about establishing crucial routines & organisation to help me at low times as I know such times will be tough when I’m plus 1 and I’m pleased to report I’m doing a good job of sticking to them. I will blog more about this at a later date, as for now there is enough to catch up on.


My Mummy & I spent the day together, going for lunch at The Elveden Inn; they do some great food including gluten free & the service is good too. Followed by some shopping at the The Elveden Estate Shop .

My Mummy brought me a pretty new tea light holder.


I saw these paper birdies there too.



I like the idea and think they could be made out of scraps of paper I keep.

Monday evening The Parrot Cat returned needless to say we were very happy and so was he.
His settling back in.



I tried a new recipe from my Indonesian book.

“Gule Kambing” An aromatic lamb stew




I baked GF White Chocolate Chip & Macadamia Nut Cookies.



I made the dog some Large Ice Cubes, as he loves snow & ice so I figured he would love the coldness in this hot weather.



I made a GF Ham Hock Pie.


Excuse the slushy heart. Not very savoury pie like I know.

And as I had some pastry left what should you do with left over pastry? …


Thats right Jam Tarts are a must.


The dog got to play with the Ice Cubes.


Kindly sharing with me while I was obliviously sunbathing – that was a shocker I tell thee!

What Else?

The Female rabbit is broody again?! I know how she feels.
She’s nesting once more.


My Roses are still alive. One still doing better than the other.


The Cats are enjoying being back together.


I’ve also been sticking to my daily chores and laundry routines.
And when I am done well I’ve been enjoying lots of this


And this


So that’s this last week.
I’m going to try and add the Gluten Free (GF) recipes I’ve been using as separate posts. So watch this space for those.
