Weeks ago I joked that the only thing I wanted for my birthday (2 Feb) was rain, and it looks like I may actually get it!!

On The Breakfast Plate This Morning…

Nothing. I am doing intermittent fasting (IF) from 7pm until 11am every day.

Right Now I Am…

Listening to my playlist as I type this up. My eldest is at work, the youngest is napping, and the house is quiet.

On My Bedside Table…

Nothing, I like to keep it clear.

On My Reading Pile…

Planning to start “Going Under” by Sonia Henry this week.

Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend…

I have been watching an insane number of dinosaur related shows (my youngest is obsessed with dinosaurs) this week.

On My TV This Week…

I am in need of some recommendations. Nothing on Netflix appeals to me lately.

On The Menu This Week…

Monday: Steamed vegetables with pasta.

Tuesday: Grilled sausages with steamed vegetables.

Wednesday: Steamed vegetables with cheese sauce.

Thursday: Grilled fish with steamed vegetables.

Friday: My eldest has youth group tonight, so a simple spaghetti bolognaise

Saturday: If It’s (if it is there you can eat it).

Sunday: Leftover birthday cake!

On My To Do List..

Finish editing my manuscript.

In The Craft Basket…

Get a start on some Easter cards.

Looking Forward To…

My British themed birthday tea party on Sunday.

Looking Around My House…

It needs a good clean before Sunday, and I want to get all of my union jack bunting up.

From My Camera…

I love this photo! I always buy two pairs of shoes at a time, and was amazed to see the before and after!

My Simple Pleasure…

My shower gel, currently a pear scented one, it just feels luxurious.

Favourite Quote…

In six month you can be in a completely different place from where you are right now, or not, it is your choice.

    We use if it’s (as a phrase) in my house now, interchangeably with YOYO (you’re on your own). Thanks for teaching it to us! And I hear you on the yummy shower gel – my favorite scent is our Mrs Meyer’s lavender hand soap.

    Wow, I thought those were two separate types of shoes for a minute there. Also love scented shower gel. I’m almost out of my “good” stuff, need a new scent for February. I like the floral based scents when it’s winter here as I don’t have to worry about attracting bugs and bees outside. Need to be more careful in spring/summer/fall as a big portion of my work days are outside. Hooray for rain! Hope you have a wonderful week!

    Enjoyed reading your post. Glad you might be getting the rain and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (A bit early, I know, but, hey!) I’d be looking forward to that tea party, too! ❤ Love the before and after shot of the shoes. Blessings for a great week ahead!

    The Birthday Tea sounds absolutely wonderful! Happy Birthday! I was doing intermittent fasting for a bit and need to get back doing that again. I am really not a good breakfast eater anyway, and do feel better when I fast. Have a blessed week.
