Giving The Forks To The Scales

27 October, 2013
20131027-111311.jpg

My little gym phase is starting to seriously shit me. And no it is isn’t the fact that 57 seconds into a work out I want to pat my face with my towel and go home. No it is more than that. I have been going one month now and at least 3 times a week but still no sight of any body changes or weightloss. I KNOW there is at least 10kgs hanging on my thighs, arse and belly…

FORWARD : If you are a health freak or nutritionist, please look the other way OR click here. The Uncomplicated Sarnie is not for those that prefer to pack as much nutrition as possible into every bite. The Uncomplicated Sarnie is also not for those that must have sumptuous looking food. Quiet simply the U.S just isn’t meant to look that fabulous. It isn’t about all that. What is an uncomplicated Sarnie you ask? Well it is a sandwhich that…

Despite someone feeding our canaries the fresh brocollini that I brought home on Saturday afternoon, I did manage to pull together my goal of making a large summer pasta salad suitable for one dinner and a few lunches.I have even given up my staple tuna sandwich from the hospital canteen for it!  (those that know me will be shocked) Here it is in all it’s delicious glory. 500g Spiral Pasta 1 Large Broccoli Florette 400g Canned Corn 250g Cherry Tomatoes 1…

Ewwwweee it seems so grubby. The poor little fellow is sporting some lovely pox like sores around his mouth too which is a constant reminder to wash hands and anything he has been playing with.

Does the mere mention of nits make you scratch? Are you scratching right now? You can feel that itch creep up your neck as you read … Go on have a good scratch. I am. I ABSOLUTELY HATE THE WORD NITS SPOKEN OUT LOUD and only fractionally less hate the word being written. Hang on. Pause. I am scratching again. And NO I do not have nits.

My head hasn’t been in a very good space of late. I have been feeling really tired. The odd low level headache which is hard to shake and I just cannot be asked. My anxiety has been through the roof. Remember I wrote about it here ? I absolutely hate not being productive and happy. Initially I blamed the crazy schedule I had going on, the extra day of work and maybe a virus. Then I went to see my…

A couple of months ago we were sent a selection of Rafferty’s Garden products to try and I was given the opportunity to ask their nutritionist some questions on children’s nutrition. Well… we absolutely loved our box of goodies and have continued to restock our pantry with them for all 3 kids not just the toddler. If you don’t already keep a stash in your pantry you really should. They are great lunch box alternatives even for older kids.  …

It Has Been Awhile Since I Have Talked About The Oh My GORD

29 September, 2013
20130929-200013.jpg

Those of you that have followed this blog since it’s beginnings will know that it started because two out of my three children suffer from GORD.  As in gastro oesophageal reflux disease.  I was mental at the time of the MMM birth, with little to no sleep under my belt and every emotion under the sun from the frustration of not being able to fix things. The blog gave me something to focus on. Something I could achieve from my…

Yep, I ate cake. At first I resisted but by lunchtime when this red velvet hunk of love was presented to me, I couldn’t resist. So therefore I went to this thing called the gym again. Don’t be alarmed by the frequency of my visits as they will reduce. It really is quiet hard to get out of the house for an hour in the evenings when you have three (possibly 4?) kids that have a lot to say and…

Can you relate to the moment when you look in the mirror and think man how did I not notice there is so much more of me lately? Well that was me recently. Gone is the breast feeding that I rather cosely hid behind for 26 months, whilst stuffing my face with cake. Yes I love cake. I love cake for morning tea everyday. In fact, in my workplace I am one part of two nicknamed the cake ladies. So…

Excuse me for a moment. I am going to get deep. To the person a little while ago who asked Mr MMM if he was married to the snobby bitch (at my workplace). You are wrong. He is married to that bitch I just despise the snobby bit. It is a front. It is how I deal with what I do in my everyday job and how I deal with the person inside of me that is shy and suffers…

About a month ago I was sent a lovely parcel in the post from Nivea. Spring hadn’t quiet sprung but the weather was warming and on close inspection of my skin … It was clear I was a little parched. Luckily inside my parcel were two bottles of the new Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion. At first I was a little sceptical and thought I would be better off with a good moisturiser after my shower.

How The Mummy Accidentally Sleep Trained Herself

21 June, 2013

We finally have all the kids sleeping in their own beds at least until midnight. [insert jazz hands here] So our bedtime routine is down pat. Lil D gets a story and a snuggle and then he is asleep. What should happen next is that I should sneak out of his room, get the girls to bed and finish off the nightly chores. This hasn’t been happening. Reason : I get so cosy in his room I fall asleep.

Chocolate That Is Good For You? – AntiOx Product Review

AntiOx Group_Product_1

  Ok so I cannot live without chocolate. I have tried and I just cannot. The harder I try to kick it, the more I crave it. Today I inhaled a packet of Jaffa Cakes, but that is because I didn’t have any AntiOx left. Note To Self. Must replace. I was sent some AntiOx bars and blocks of chocolate to review. They disappeared very quickly. My house is full of snots and coughs and that is the last thing…

I turned 36 today. Seems like only yesterday I was celebrating my 30th dressed as a flapper and telling all and sundry I had just turned 21. I was completely convincing. Or people were just being polite, not game to disagree. (Possibly more the case.) I toyed with the idea on my 35th birthday of getting some heavy duty beauty products, but never got around to it. I needed sleep more than creams and I can’t buy that frickin stuff.…

She has always quiet liked the commercial oat drinks you can buy in the popper packs so I decided to attempt making my own version for her. Turns out I have found a delicious breakfast drink that is easy to have whilst on the run to work too. I used my thermomix but the recipe is easily converted to a blender.…

A few weeks ago I was left biting my tongue as a younger person with little responsibility in life told me I had no excuse for not getting to the gym before work in the mornings. I held my composure and thought you have no frickin idea what it is like to be a parent let alone a working parent. Now, it is currently 3.30 am on a Monday morning. I am awake because Lil D has been awake on…

Tonight is my night off. As is every other Tuesday night for the foreseeable future. I come home from work, have first shower, hop into my pjs, fire up the foot spa and spend the rest of the evening sitting on my backside doing diddly squat. I announced this new tradition of mine on Mother’s Day this year,when I was handed a foot spa from my little lovelies. They all looked at me blankly when I defined what my night…

Yes, I do like the money I earn, but day care fees eat up a lot of it. There is something more that drives me out of bed on freezing mornings like today… I am sure you are…

Words cannot describe how pissed off I am that the Kale I have been growing slowly and surely from small seedlings has been INHALED by caterpillars in a blink. You see Kale isn’t easy to source out here … in the sticks. I wanted some variety for the green part of my green smoothies. So growing my own was my only option. I don’t grow things easily. Unless we are talking about human beings. Then in that case, I am…
