Pottering about at home.

On the menu for dinner:

Something easy like fish, chips and peas because I'm going out to a church meeting tonight.

Looking forward to this week:
Half-term with the girls!

Tips and Tricks:

To get your children to eat more fruit have a regular 'fruit time' everyday. At first they might pull their faces, but once it is in the routine they expect it. Our fruit time is in the afternoon as soon as they get back from school. I get very few complaints now, even from Chatterbox who is not a big fan of fruit.

My favourite blog post this week:

Sandra's Moonlight post, gorgeous photos of the moon.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):


No words needed (favourite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):

I love hanging washing out.

Lesson learned the past few days:

That we can so easily lose our focus on Jesus in the midst of all our church busyness.

On my mind and in my prayers:

My nan and granddad.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead me and guide me. Psalm 31:3


  1. Love your lesson learned. As well as your scripture. I love to just sit and watch the laundry flapping in the breeze.

    Have a great week.

  2. What a beautiful photo. Stopping by the links for thie meme.

  3. Good tip about the fruits. When the girls complain of hunger between meals they get to eat something healthy like carrots or nuts. I know they aren't really hungry if they turn me down.

  4. My mom is from your blog!

  5. Oh I love hanging washing out as well. Such lovely smell.
