Happy #Wensfriesday

Now that the days are getting shorter, nights are donning their chilly suits and the autumn term has well and truly begun.  We are back to searching for little pick-me-ups to carry us through the long weeks ahead.  What better way than celebrating #Wensfriesday together?  

For my #Wensfriesday treat today, I’m picking out a savoury snack.  With a cheesy flavour and crispy, crumbly body, it snaps under mouth-watering bites expelling the delicious herbs, salts and peppers trapped within its mix.  

What is my snack of choice?  Can anyone guess?

The Serins Starlight Special Party – recap #BeWoW #SerinsShoutOut

A huge thanks to Serins for running a full week of fun and interaction over various media fronts. It’s been awesome and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it. So, whilst I nibble on my piece of Biltong, here’s a recap of the week from Serins. 😀

Happy #Wensfriesday

It has been a while since I’ve posted on my Wensfriesday post, but I just had to share my happiness and mid-week special.

I haven’t had a chance to enjoy a sweetie break – we did that the other night whilst watching a Star Wars marathon!  Instead, my treat today was tackling a job I’ve been avoiding for good reason…the patio!  The pallets have done their time and it was time to replace or remove them.  Today was the day of reckoning. 

   Now I’m no wimp, but the size of spiders jumping out from cracks and crevices had me screaming and doing crazy dances in the garden. I was not the only one! The children screeched when one tried to run up my shoe! Eurgh! I’m still getting the shivers now.After moving over 36 slabs, 10 pallets and supporting bricks, the majority of the area has been cleared and a new set of steps laid out.  Tomorrow I will finish the hellish corner that’s left and lay out the rest of the slabs over the cleared area.   

 My treat at the end of a hard day’s work was a lovely cup of Jasmine tea.  I guess I will have to celebrate a proper Wensfriesday tomorrow.

Have you tackled any major jobs today that have been bugging you for a while?  What was your mid-week treat?

Good-bye Bird


Good-bye my pretty Bird,

Fly away free

Never mind the tears

They’re not for you, but for me.

Good-bye my golden friend

The one who drives me mad

Even now I smile at memories

That share my life with you, making me glad.

Good-bye our precious grandmother

The children loved you a tonne

I told them when I came home

You gave me the last touch

So the game continues on!

Good-bye my pretty little bird

Death has collected you at a young age

How peacefully you left us

To say farewell to your empty cage.

RIP Mum 11/12/1944 – 25/04/2015

Happy #Wensfriesday!

Happy mid-week break everyone.  It’s the holidays here and the children are loving their late mornings and even later nights.  Decent mealtimes have gone out the window and as I’m sitting here, my youngest is munching on carrot sticks and popcorn!  Easter has been a quiet, peaceful affair with yummy Easter eggs still littering the house.  My favourite this year has to be the Creme Egg.  It is scrummy delicious!

As I mentioned in a previous post, eggs ran out early in our area and last minute shopping turned up absolutely nothing…not even a baby egg in sight.  I left it too late and had to substitute Ferrero Rocher boxes for the older kids (not that I heard a complaint).  Between the nephews and neices and my sprogs, I had to spread the eggs out  fairly.  My sister-in-law had the same problem and had to buy Cadbury Creme eggs for all the children.  I am happily harvesting their little eggs because they don’t like them whilst they have the large egg.  Win-win!

What do you have lined up for your Wensfriesday treat?  Will it be chocolate or something more savoury considering the warmer weather?

Whatever it is, have a wonderful Wensfriesday! 😀  I’m off to find another eggy and I will leave you with a funny little song from This Is Jinsy.
