Day 12 of 365 - I'm a Spoonie xx

I took this photo today but the story behind it was inspired by something I read on Monday

I suffer daily with unexplainable fatigue and pain

I am under the hospital and slowly we are getting answers

I find it so hard to explain my day to day life as people will say "You dont look sick"

This article was written by a Lupus sufferer, I havent got Lupus. But the analogy in this article can be used to explain life for many people suffering on a daily basis from a debilitating disease or illness

Please grab a coffee/tea/"add you beverage of choice here" 

and take some time out of your day to read .....

The photo of the spoons will become clear and I wont look as mad as you may think I am LOL

Day 11 of 365 - Cartoon time

I just love, that Ty loves, Tom & Jerry !! It is one of my all time favourite cartoons and I love nothing more than curling up on the sofa of an afternoon with my little man to have a good chuckle at Tom & Jerry

Tim finds it so funny seeing me sniggering away at the TV when its on, It truly makes me feel like a kid again and never fails to make me smile

I must also share that Ty has also started watching "Pink Powder"

Thats Pink Panther to you and I

Got to love the things kids say right ??

Day 10 of 365 - Caught Ya !!

I had no idea what todays picture would be - Monday is a work day for me so my pictures will more than likely happen in the evening on both Mondays and Thursdays

Now ..... Ty is always being told not to stand too close to the TV as he will oftern stand right in front of it watching it or playing the Wii.

So when I came in from the kitchen earlier this photo oppotunity was too good to miss!!!

Here is where he was "Sitting" watching TV

Thats right he WAS doing as he was told and NOT "Standing too close"
Kids Eh !!

I know its late for posting, but better late than never - I had a nap this afternoon and spent a lovely evening snuggled up in fron of the TV

We took Ty to the park early afternoon and he rode his bike there I got some great photos of him, Tim and me but I just had to share a photo of Ty on his bike - I took 164 photos over the park today LOL so plenty of scrapping material for layouts xx

Day 6 of 365 - Back to work !!

I know todays post is quite late in the evening (GMT timezone here)

this would be becuase today was my first day back a work since the twenty-something of December

I thought I'd grab a snap of my desk and my part of the office.

I kept the blinds shut today as the weather was awlful - lots of rain Eeuuggghhhh

Oh well my weekend starts now as I wont be back in the office till Monday. I love working just 2 days a week - enough to keep me sane and feel like an adult but also perfect for being an almost full time stay at home Mum. I love my little man !!!

Day 5 of 365 - Time to get healthy

Todays's Picture - My Shopping list for tomorrow ...

I have started a shopping list for tomorrow (our weekly shop night) of things I want to buy to kick start my new healthy eating .... from Friday !! I've decided the worse day to start something like this is a Monday .... its so long till the weekend and you think - ooooo I'll be naughty then - I want to be good at weekends too so if I start on Friday I'm hoping it encorages me to keep it up through the weekend (as its nearer) - make sense ?? clear as mud ?? I thought so LOL - But hey it makes perfect sense to me and I think it will help me stick to my new goal of eating healthy and trying to shed some lbs !!!

On the list .....

Carrot Sticks - if I buy the carrots and have to peel and chop them myself - i wont bother so i'm cheating and buying them pre done LOL

Ryvita an Philidelphia - Crackers and soft cheese - great for lunch or an evening snack

Flavoured Mayo - I've seen lemon, garlic and roasted tomato flavors - great for dipping my carrot sticks in !!

Apples - Need to eat more fruit and apples is a good start right ?

Crabsticks and Rocket - Great for a little salad at lunchtime or in a sandwich

Brown Bread - to make the afore mentioned sandwich

Water - To put in my water cooler in the fridge door - no more Coke or ribena for me !!

Flavoured teas - Need to cut down on the coffee and more importantly the amount of full fat milk or creamer that i use to make it yummy LOL

Phew ........ Thats it for now - baby steps right ??

I will buy veggies to go with dinners too and low fat dinners rather than naughty ones but thats another post for another day !!

Day 4 of 365 - Ben 10

Todays picture is of Ty playing with his Ben 10 figures

I said in my build up posts to my P365 that some days I might post an inspiring quote, be it profound words or something a bit quirky or funny .......

Well here is my 1st quote for you xx

While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.
