Oh goodness I can’t believe I enjoyed the Royal Wedding so much. It really was a fairytale. I just felt compelled to pick up the camera and catch the kiss – hehehhe! It gave me goosebumps and a little tear. What an amazing Princess…… and Prince William did ok too!
This is how Andrew participated in the event …… snoring…….bless him!!!
‘Ministry of Food is about getting people cooking again by teaching them the basics: how to cook, how to shop, and how to enjoy food in a way that benefits not only individuals, but also their families. We want to give as many people as possible the tools and information they need to be able to make better food choices.’
I am getting very excited! This weekend Andrew and I start our ten weeks of cooking classes at the Jamie’s Ministry of Food in Ipswich. I jumped at the opportunity to take part. Anything that helps a Mum provide quick, easy and most importantly healthy meals for her family is very exciting. I was in the hairdressers yesterday and some Mum’s were discussing how they become stuck for healthy meal ideas and would love some inspiration. Well fingers crossed I have found mine….. I can’t wait. I also would love to lose some weight. So this is a great kick start. And yes you did read it correctly Andrew is also attending. It is a wonderful opportunity for him to learn to cook but I have to say I am looking forward to us doing this together. My Mum and Dad are taking care of Ben (love them to bits!!!) while Andrew and I cook together.
Our first class is this Saturday. We will receive a “Participant Start-Up Kit”, with a folder of recipes and information, a Jamie’s Ministry of Food bag and an apron. Each week we need to take a tupperware container because each participant cooks a family meal for four to take home.
I can’t wait to let you know how it goes!!
Another lovely afternoon……. great friends, baking, bike riding, motorbikes, gyrocars, lego, soccer, trampolining, bbq, cups of tea and a EASTER EGG HUNT!!
Sorry Aunty Claire we didn’t mean to do it without you xoxo
We had a quiet Easter day with family swinging, digging, running, flying, blowing bubbles, eating, patting chickens, jumping and laying in the sun…….just lovely xo
And this is how the little ones spent their evening (and one big one) ……. so much fun!!!
We went looking for bikes for Ben this weekend. With no intention to buy one….. just looking. We went to a couple of shops but were so impressed with the service and products at the Yellow Jersey we couldn’t help ourselves. They even had a children’s track where Ben could try out the bikes!! We obviously got carried away and Ben now has his first two wheeler……… with training wheels. It’s so pretty and shiny!!

It seems that lately all I blog about is Star Wars. But that is my world right now. From the time we get up in the morning to the time Ben goes to bed we seem to leave planet earth (in our X Wing) and head off on adventures to the far away galaxies of Star Wars. We meet all kinds of wonderful people and creatures. This morning we met Jabba and Han Solo in carbonite!! I do sometimes curse all that is Star Wars (especially when it is early morning, before coffee and Ben can’t find Anakin’s lego head!!). But really I love it! I love watching, discovering, exploring, imagining, dressing up and playing in the Star Wars world of a four year old.
So does that mean I am becoming ‘Strong with the Force’ ?
