Positive Posts

When you begin blogging it is always best to have something to ‘say’ and its in your best interest if you know what your talking about so you can blog it without the fear of someone cutting in and saying what a pratt you are for posting it. Be positive about your posts and in the knowledge that people WILL read them, even if its just a skim through, if its interesting to you and has something that speaks to them as a person they will keep skimming your posts with the end result them becoming an avid follower. Start telling people about the products that you use, what its like, how it works and by joining their products affiliate programs you could earn money from click through and any subsequent sales. Share their product offers and write reviews, if you find it interesting others will too.

I’m sitting here perspiring, sod it no, i’m sweating over this post as this mornings first hot flush sweeps me from head to toe. Hold on it wont last long, just going to open a window…….. My office is only small and my computer acts as a constant heat source so i’m battling that too. I’m thinking of today’s meal plan and have come up with the following. As i’m following the slimming world diet and eat healthily you can follow these recipes without gaining weight if it’s done correctly.

This morning we had the usual Overnight Oats

Ingredients

40g porridge oatsOvernight oats

200g fat free natural yogurt

Mixed blueberries, strawberries and raspberries

Method

  1. Layer the porridge, yogurt and fruit in a jar or bowl. Cover and put in the refrigerator overnight so the porridge absorbs all the yogurt.
  2. In the morning stir so all the layers are mixed together and top with more fruit.

Tip: Swap the berries for different Speed Free Foods – pear and blackberry, orange and peach, or apple and cinnamon.

Very easy to do when your eyes are half shut at midnight and very tasty in the morning. I’m thinking we will go with a hearty soup for mid day and pulled pork for dinner tonight as it’s my eldest son’s favorite and he and his family are coming for dinner tonight. Perhaps if i can bribe him with his favorite food he will do some work in the garden while i think of my next post 😉

April showers and May flowers

Being bored and not able to go far from home, what a nightmare! I am constantly being told ‘enjoy it while you can, soon you will be back to normal, running around after everyone wishing you had more time for your self.’ True! Too true but it doesn’t help, at all. So what do you do? Spend money of course. I decided that if i can’t take photos outside away from home then i would make it possible to take photos at home. I bought a light box and a couple of lights and i am going to start a small  project photographing fruit and veg among other things. I have a fancy for creating some photos with snails, i found a small snail climbing a flower stem and liked the look of it and wondered if i could reconstruct it. I also want to photograph thin sliced fruit in fizzy water, flowers against coloured backgrounds. There are numerous ways for me to use my new toys. All i have to do now is, well, do it!
