So today morning, while helping my beautiful Mummy with some errands, something happened. I kept running into friends and neighbours telling me how much they enjoy reading my blog and about the recipes they like. Neighbourhoods change, but visiting my parents feels like going back home. People there are mainly very friendly and many of them know me from when I was a child. I love feedback, and before you roll your eyes at me (I can see you) I appreciate all kinds. Done properly. You know what I mean. I love writing on here. I don’t get too personal, mostly because I don’t want to make my friends and family uncomfortable or make them feel uneasy in any way. I want people to talk to me at the end of the day!
I hope everyone’s having a good Monday. I have a funny relationship with Mondays – I love to hate them. I know that without them there would be no weekends. I’m trying to think of something to like about them but nothing comes to mind really. All that I can say is that I do like certain Mondays, like today. I crossed out most of the stuff from my to-do list this afternoon and I saw my mum this morning too. So a good day on the whole.
Me: Excuse me? 2016?
Me: Err…I think there’s some kind of mistake.
Me: Yes I think so. My calendar says it’s the end of May.
Me: I think that’s wrong.
2016: Please wake up!
To be continued….
I want to start by clearing something up: I really like this book. Well, you say, you’re writing about it on your blog, so we’re sure you do. And you’re absolutely right, but I wanted to clear that up because I know that some of my readers might misunderstand me when reading this review. When it comes to everything so-called-healthy and/or the whole ‘clean eating’ movement I can come across as quite strong in my disapproval. However, this book to me, is very far off from all that. (My only qualm about it is the use of coconut oil. But that will hopefully be dealt with in another post.)
I planned to continue working on a book review today but things are definitely not going to plan. This is happening so often lately. I know I say it so often to make your eyes and ears explode (such an exaggeration, really!) but these past few weeks I just haven’t had time to do anything. My writing almost went down the drain, and I can barely go through the day without feeling like a zombie by the afternoon. So although I have been posting regularly once a week, things on C&T were a little quiet on my end.
However I didn’t want to go through this week without posting something. I will have another post up because I know some of you are waiting for a particular book review. I plan to have that for you in a few days.
I cannot believe we’re already in the second week of February. Where time is going I really don’t know. It must be a good thing though – it must mean I have plenty of things to do. This month started with a birthday get-together for one of my dearest friends, and I know that more good things will follow. There’s nothing better than to feel positive. It’s hard sometimes because life is not only about smelling the roses but it’s the little things that make a difference. Like pancakes, just to mention one example!
The above photo is another throwback. You might have noticed by now that I tend to take loads of shots, which I process/edit but then remain stacked in my folders simply because I forget about them completely.
