Here's what I came up with for this week:
Best therapy ever for when you can't leave the house but need a sweet treat. During the last seven days I made Brownies, Afghans and white chocolate cheesecake with strawberries and an Oreo crust. It was a small flat cheesecake, because there was only Smiley and I to eat it, but still delicious.
The recipe needs a bit of tweaking, and then I *may* blog about it when it's absolutely perfect...
A free Fitbit
Of course it's not a Fitbit at all. Sadly the manufacturers have not offered me a free one to review, but I'm over here if you're interested? No this step counter arrived home in Smiley's school bag as part of the Food Dudes programme that encourages Irish children to make healthy eating choices. As she can't use it, I decided to give it a try and was fascinated to find that I clocked up 800 steps in two hours yesterday morning just getting everyone up and everything organised for the day. I could get into this step counting trend.
The babysitter is back! She was studying and then away and even though Angel is still here, I feel that I have many more options when our babysitter is around too. Options that enabled me to go to the cinema with Angel last night as a post exam treat. This was her choice of film.
My verdict: a good action movie, but not much heart. The ice-cream was lovely though!
So those are my three reasons to be cheerful for this week, I hope that yours was good too.
