catching up

There is a problem here – the last post was all about getting fit and healthy and this post will feature home baked goodies! So last week started well but ended with a day spent in the kitchen – which is actually one of my favourite things to do.

I also made a cake but there isn’t a photo! At least I have a teenage son who is always hungry.

We had a very insignificant amount of snow on Friday so no trip to the allotment. For once I was glad to have an excuse to stay at home. Life seems to have been very busy with lots of coming and going and some exam stress too. The latter in particular can be exhausting. I’d rather be getting ready for GCSE’s myself than having a teenage daughter who is worried about them.


On Fridays we have been watching a film together as a family while tucking in to something easy to put together or a take away. I have loved being together. It makes a great start to the weekend.

  1. Oh Rachel! I do know what you mean when you say you’d rather be getting ready for GCSEs yourself! That is how I have always felt about anything my daughters have worried about, especially Elinor. Your ‘together time’ on a Friday sounds wonderful. I can’t get my family to do this anymore – no-one can agree about a film to watch for a start!
    We had a couple of inches of snow on Friday but it all disappeared very quickly without leaving much ice behind, I’m pleased to say.


    1. Hi Clare – knowing that you have been through the worry and anxiety of a teenager gives me a lot of comfort.
      Our film choices have been all Super hero movies which i have loved!! (Never thought I would but Iron Man is my favourite so far). It won’t last forever so I’m making the most of it for now. Thank you for your friendship – means a lot

      1. And thank-you for your friendship too xx My elder daughter loves all the super hero films but I haven’t watched any yet mainly because Richard and Elinor aren’t interested and Alice only comes home a couple of times a year now 😦
        Children are so different aren’t they? Both of mine have mental health issues but apart from that they react so differently to things and study differently. I remember it was the same with my brother and sister; my parents had to treat us all differently to get the best out of us.
