Long time no see.

I'll be honest, I did think about deleting this blog. I have nothing to write about - life is not particularly exciting. But then I thought about all the nice things I get to do, all of the things I get to see, all of the things I experience, and I thought to myself that I want to write about it, so I can look back on the good times I've had.

So, the most obvious thing to say is that I am obsessed with peanut butter on toast. 

With some red grapes on the side to add a bit more health to the plate:

And, clearly the best combination is this:

Peanut butter on toast with sliced banana on top is amazing. The peach on the side was just an added bonus...

The blueberries added a nice touch too.

So, to add a bit of variety to breakfast time, I did try another experiment which resulted in this.....:

This is cinnamon porridge, with warmed summer berries on top and a big spoonful of peanut butter. The cinnamon porridge was an amazing base by itself, the warmed berries added a certain sweetness and then the peanut butter melted into it all creating an amazing bowlful of goodness. I'm not gonna lie, I was sad when I finished it!

I have also tried a pumpkin spice latte:

and a salted caramel hot chocolate, which was very nice:

I have also stocked up on these:

as they're currently £1 in a well known supermarket with green writing ;) and as the use by dates aren't until June 2013, thought it was too good to miss! 

I have been reading:

and I've been walking here:

This blog is going to take a shift in direction soon, as I focus on the next stage of our life, so watch this space....

It won't be so long next time, promise!

  1. N,

    Oh, you tease! What is the next stage? What have I missed now?

    Loving the peanut butter ideas. Must buy some. I had it every morning for breakfast whilst camping in Botswana.

    So glad you are back to blogging.

    Sft xxxxx

    1. Peanut butter is a must! Thanks for your comment xx

  2. I actually tried your peanut butter with porridge last time you blogged about it and I loved it!! I am going to have it tomorrow again, I have some blueberries in the freezer, so will bring them out to put in too. xx

    The blog is such a good diary to keep, I might even bring my own back to life lol x

    1. Ooh yay, peanut butter on porridge is so good, especially when it begins to melt - YUM! Did you try it with some blueberries? You'll have to let me know how you get on! :)

  3. Good to see you posting again :)
    I have to keep PB out of the house as I just eat it with a spoon nom nom nom.

  4. I'm glad you didn't hit that delete button. I'm sure we've all had times when ideas fail us or life gets in the way. You might be interested in an online blogging course justb is running over at

    I read, and loved, Hollinghurst's The Line of Beauty so I'll be interested to hear how you get on with The Stranger's Child.

    1. I haven't started it yet - but I shall let you know!

  5. What's all this about 'nothing to write about' and 'nothing exciting'. I, for one, enjoy all that you are writing about. It's the little things in life that make a life. Keep blogging please.
    Love from Mum
