    It’s Christmas month…I mean, December!!

    You guys, I am so excited. Why (like you even have to ask)? Because it’s December! Which means Christmas! My favourite time of the year, because it’s kind of like it’s EVERYBODY’S birthday all at once! And birthdays are awesome, am I right, baby jeebus? Unless of course your birthday IS on Christmas day, in which case it probably sucks a little bit because no-one cares and they wrap your presents in Christmas wrapping paper and don’t even get you separate gifts…I take my hat off to you guys… I love seeing the decorations, eating calorific treats I wouldn’t normally indulge in throughout the year, the feeling of summer festivity…

    Fake it ’til you bake it.

    I didn’t really care for baking until I got pregnant with the Little Mister back in 2011. When the urge hit, I went a little bit nuts (I’m really not joking). Luckily my joy for it has since evened out and now I like doing it regularly. It can be a cost effective way to fill out Mr Unprepared’s work lunches and to provide the Little Mister with interesting enough snacks. It is also the way that I pad out the end of the pay period (when the cupboard and fridge are looking a bit bare). I find ways to throw as many random ingredients into a muffin or some other…

    Crisp…and delicious: Apple chips!

    This post has been inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s September Photo a Day challenge x OMG. Check out these apple chips. Yes. Apple. I found a version of this recipe on Pinterest and it sounded just like something I needed in my life! It’s easy, reasonably healthy and low in calories! Not to mention, bloody tasty and surprisingly sweet! Fantastic treat to help beat those sugar cravings without going overboard(much better for us than M+Ms no?) and something yummy to help encourage the Little Mister to try new things (spoiler alert: he loves them). Look, they’re not sugar free, but you need so little because the apple’s natural sweetness comes out.…

    Healthy. Well, my version anyway.

    This post has been inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s Photo a Day challenge x About the photo: OK, so I am actually not that much of a fan of strawberries, but I’ll eat them if they’re a part of a dessert…they were probably the healthiest part of my cake (besides the water I poured in there) that I made on the weekend, but still, they were there, looking pretty and red so I took the photo! I’m almost a week into my improved diet (not ‘diet’ as in fad diet but as in what I eat – big distinction) and I’ve already noticed a big difference. My body does not…

    Out of place.

    This post has been inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s September Photo a Day challenge x Everywhere I go in my house, SOMETHING is out of place at all times. I think that’s the definition of a house that’s ‘lived in’. Especially when your home is lived in by a toddler. Sometimes it gets out of control to the point where I’m frustrated, but other times it’s kind of comforting and I know I would miss it if it wasn’t there. I feel grateful for the fact that I have a messy little munchkin or a munchkin at all. Yesterday, my ‘out of place’ companions were Humpty and Fergus from Play…
