Early waking

Good morning! Its 7am on Saturday, I can see the sun is rising out the window and I have been awake for the past 2 hours or more already.

Darren starts work super early at the weekend so he can get finished nice and early, I often have trouble dropping back off to sleep after his alarm goes off (not always, there are times I don't hear it at all and wake in daylight to a big darren sized space in the bed) especially when I have little baby wiggles in my belly distracting me.

On the plus side, I've stuck on the little electirc heater and stayed in bed watching the last couple of episodes of 3 hungry boys that I'd missed, catching up on blogs and deciding what I am going to bake... once I drag my backside out from under the duvet!

I've decided I'm going to bake a basic loaf, which i'll add some olives and herbs to, and some of these little breakfasty pop tarts. Since seeing them on Emmas Blog, I've seen them a few other places too. I'm planning on making some apple, raisin and cinnamon ones, home made apple & blackberry jam filled ones, and Nutella filled ones too. (Darren will want the Nuttella ones, will have to make lots of those!)
And the best thing? Make a big batch, and freeze them before cooking. You can just grab a couple from the freezer and shove them in the oven for 15minutes for some lovely homemade sweet pastry goodness when the urge takes you.

Guess what our lazy Sunday breakfast will be this week! ;)

Lust List - Feb 2012

Its back! my lust list of items I have been lusting after for the last month.


1: I would love this casserole dish. Of course its out of our price range so this one would suffice.
2: This hand bag is lovely, Green or Coral I don't mind which.
3: These jeans... in fact I'll probably have these ordered for myself in the next week or so!

I'm Back!!!...

Well hello there... If indeed there is still anyone left out there who ventures onto this corner of the interweb to see if I still exist!
I know I have been a very very bad blogger! I have reasons for this I promise, the past few months have been one of great change for me (and my husband for that matter) and 2012 is going to be full of new challenges, adventures and excitement.

Not least because.....
Yay!! We are expecting our first child! (OMFG! Its still so unreal to us... We did what!! We made a baby! Holy cow, how on earth are we going look after a baby!!)

We are very excited, and of course happy about this new little family member that we shall be meeting later this year. :) (At the end of June, in fact I am due the day before my birthday!)

At the moment we seem to have gone into DIY overload trying to get the house shipshape and sorted for little bumps arrival. As I type this I am laying in bed, in a room with no carpet or other furniture other than a side table which has my light, book and iPod on it (and we have still to completely decide on what colour the room is being painted)

As you can imagine I don't know how regularly I shall update this blog, or for that matter with what subjects I shall update. (I shall certainly do my best not to become a baby bore!) I have a couple of foody items in the pipeline and no doubt endless DIY updates.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New year, and that 2012 is full of joy and laughter for you all.

See you soon.
Jules xoxo

ps: thats a reeeally old photo! it just happens to be one we keep on our fridge and change the wording when each other are least expecting it. sometimes its nice comments about each other, more often its mickey taking and abuse! ;)
