#FrubesMoves Challenge

#FrubesMoves Challenge

My boys have recently really got into the Angry birds, but it is a constant battle with them over who is better the birds or the pigs.
Having a dance off between the Birds and Pigs we could settle the feud for good – they both picked a side and took to the dancefloor (living room rug) to find out who was the ultimate dancer!
My eldest shook his tail feathers with the Birds team and my youngest dance his bacon butt off with the Pigs.

#brightFuture Challenge

Apparently ''Six out of ten parents say that they have started to live in a ‘greener’ way at home at the suggestion of their children'', I also think that my children have inspired me to think more carefully about our impact on our environment. Having children has made me want to look after the world more to ensure there is a beautiful and healthy environment for them to grow up in.

Working from home, work room tour

My youngest has now settled into doing mornings at Nursery, so I am now making the change to being more work at home mum than stay at home mum. Whatever either of those mean! To go with this new mind-set and the two and half hours work time I have ever weekday morning. I decided to get my workspace in order.

Free skull with flower head band cross stitch pattern PDF

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I'd share with you this delightful skull pattern. Isn't she beautiful? She's got flowers on her skull and she's ready to party. Although the pattern is quite large at just under 100 x 100 it has a limited palette and I have not filled in the skull, preferring just to outline her in black on white cloth. You could however fill her head in, if you chose to stitch her on coloured cloth. I'd love to see pics of her and you can share them with me on Twitter and my Facebook page. Just click on the read more link to download the free pattern.

Grain free, coconut flour chocolate brownies recipe


Grain free, coconut flour chocolate brownies recipe
Since my Coeliac diagnosis I have experimented with all sorts of flours, but I have only recently discovered grain free flours. Of  them all coconut flour is my favourite and as a substitute to wheat flour I think it works really well in sweet baking. Also I do love coconut. If you are not so keen, I still recommend you try this recipe as it only tastes of chocolate!

#FloraLunchbox Challenge

We are now well into the first Half term back after the Summer holidays and the enthusiasm for packing the lunchboxes can be wearing a little thin. Coming up with ideas everyday that the kids will enjoy and that you can be happy are healthy and nutritious can feel like a chore. So when I was asked to take part in the  #FloraLunchbox Challenge, sponsored by Flora. I was excited to come up with some new ideas for my boys lunches.
Flora has created a meal planner to help put together tasty and nutritious lunchbox combinations so we used that as our starting point for getting back some enthusiasm for lunch.

After looking at the meal planner and the website for ideas, here are our favorite combinations for a weeks worth of lunchboxes.

Monday - Wholemeal pasta salad, made with a tatssiki dressing, sweetcorn, tomatoes and peppers.
A granola bar, an apple, a satsuma and a drink
