Max had a huge success at work last week - he closed a deal that he has been working on since last year. When we were on holiday in Canada, he worked from 2pm to midnight most days we were there, putting his time and effort into this deal (and others, too, of course, but this was a major one!). It . . .
This naan bread recipe is delicious and so easy! I first worked it out one night when Max and I had decided to have a curry for dinner but were only about 45 minutes away from eating. My usual naan bread recipe took hours (lots of proofing and rising before divvying up the dough and proofing/rising . . .
My baby is at childcare this week. I can’t quite believe that it’s happening; he still seems so small to me. He’s definitely the youngest baby there at this point- at only nine months old, he is at least three months younger than most of the other kids there, and they are all walking easily around . . .
So I’ve been having all these issues with Wordpress where I can’t upload images using Jetpack or the plain old Wordpress system, which means I can’t post from my phone or iPad, only via Mars Edit on my Mac. The problem is, my Mac is currently frozen after my son when crazy with his little hands . . .
I didn’t want to write about it here at the time, but Max was away for a work trip over eight days in the last couple weeks. He had the chance to go to Washington, DC, for a training induction at his job, and he had a blast touring iconic sites, eating and drinking the American way, and working hard . . .
This week has been challenging. Zach has entered a new wonder week, and ‘week’ isn’t quite the right description: this one is meant to last a whole five weeks! If you haven’t heard of wonder weeks, they’re periods in a baby’s life where they are growing and learning new things and having major . . .
Max and I enjoyed this curry for dinner tonight (Zach will have his milkified taste a little later on!). It’s one of our favourites; we first had it at my sister’s house in Canada. We were visiting last Christmas and staying all in one house with my parents, my sister and brother-in-law, and their . . .
I’m currently sitting on my couch, drinking tea and typing on my trusty old laptop…alone. Completely alone. I can’t remember the last time I was alone; these moments, once plentiful and taken for granted, are now few and far between and fiercely valued. You see, in early April this year, my world . . .
Max and I are having a baby! We’re just so excited about the big changes coming this year! We will welcome our little addition in April, bringing our household to two adults, a baby, two dogs, and a cat. Our circus is getting wilder and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Given the change on . . .
I was a vegetarian for 14 years; a vegan for one. I’ve been on the Body Trim program, counted every calorie, and went to Weight Watchers for a little while back in high school. I’ve lived the extremes: first as an exercise addict, eating 1200 calories a day and revelling in my skinny jeans; later . . .
