I am a self confessed 'foodie'.
(and proud of it)
I read recipe books from cover to cover like novels, I watch food network on tv, I prefer to buy new pretty bake ware over new clothes, I buy the 'delicious' magazine not gossip mags. I bake 2-3 times a week. I enjoy putting together a weekly menu every Sunday, sat with my cook books for inspiration and I cook from scratch every night.
So this week at Cocoa Daisy, I've set a food challenge for our #4 weekly summer challenge.
If you would like to join in, simply scrap any food related page.
Here are a couple of my favourites.
Using Fancy Pants 'To the Moon' collection.
And this one using Fancy Pants 'Beach Babe' collection.

I've struggled abit with this cold.
It's just been such a busy time that I haven't been able to slow down.
So as usual, I ended up loosing my voice.
It went Friday night.
We'd had a busy day at legoland with Louis. I came home and felt terrible. I laid on the sofa before getting him ready for sleepover #2 and had to also get ready as Hollie was having a friend over for a sleepover and we were taking them to 'Hype', a local disco for the 11yrs+.
The plan was that Ade and I were to have a date night, we'd booked a table at Pizza Express.
But I lay on the sofa and just wanted to sleep.
Louis asked if I was going to die. Apparently I looked like they do in films when they are about to die.
Then he asked me, if I cancelled my date with Ade, would he dump me???
Can you imagine that???
Made me laugh though.
So with all that my voice gave in and I'm still waiting for it to reappear.
Not sure if the long walk in the rain helped yesterday.
I just needed some fresh air though. So 10am we decided to get dressed and wander over to the common near us. Just as we got outside it started raining. We grabbed raincoats and went anyway, but the rain never stopped.
It was fun though, despite Louis not being quiet for 2 seconds. He chatted, and sung songs he made up the whole time and then chatted some more. It was non stop. Very tiring!
Here's some snaps of the walk.
These yellow plants are everywhere and covered in these stripey caterpillars.
Hope you had a good weekend : )
Thanks for visiting today xxx
