Bullet Point Life

The weeks have zoomed by and I find it really hard to keep up the blogging bizzo during term time, so, be prepared for a deluge over the next couple of weeks!

In the name of fertility and trying to help my body keep hold of a little growing bean, I am making a few adjustments to my diet.  I saw a naturopath specialising in fertility and she has given me some things to help my body prepare a healthy lining.  She also suggested I look into cutting out grains from my diet, and directed me to this fabulous website - The Petite Kitchen.  Today I have tried these yummy little morsels. 

Prune, chocolate and pistachio truffles.
And they really are quite delicious.  Go here for the recipe.  I did find I had to add another 1/4 Cup of prunes to make everything combine.  I can't wait to try some of the other yummy things on there.

I am hoping to get a bit of R&R over the break, but not before this weekend, when I will be celebrating my 40th birthday!  Eeeeeek!  So this is birthday week.  I love birthday week and what a better time than in the holidays when I can catch up with friends, have coffees, lunches etc.  The adjustments to the diet may need to wait until next week.  Hehe.

Getting a bit of reading done instead of watching TV has been really enjoyable.  Although I am struggling to get into this particular book.  I go to a book club and this is the latest one.  I don't always enjoy their selections.

It's winter.  It's cold.  I love winter.  I love wearing layers, scarves, gloves, funky hats.  I am a hat wearer.  Oh how I love rugging up and being snuggly.

Please excuse my nearly 40 lines but this photo was taken unawares and I'm just keeping it real sistas!

Finally, I had a whirlwind visit from these two. 

Chris and Liz

They came down from Wellington for 48 hours, for a wedding. The most funny thing was, I saw the proposal. I think half the world has.  Well, maybe not that many, but a few thousand anyway.  The lucky bride is Chris's niece. 

It was so lovely to see them both.  Liz left me a card that said seeing me was 'like balm to the soul' and I couldn't have put it better myself.  Yay for good friends!

I hope you have all had a fabulous week.  See you again a bit sooner than normal! TPxx
