Cherish all those moments!

14th March 2016
We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.
What a wonderful day we had yesterday, mom and I got in the car to go for a drive and ended up at Talacre beach, singing in the car, walk on the beach, chips and ice-cream, yep we did them all.  The tray of chips were shared and half were thrown away, we weren't really hungry just wanted to say we'd had chips at the seaside.  I had a lick of moms ice-cream again as I didn't really want one.  We were blessed with sunshine, it was 14.5 degrees according to my car, how awesome is that!  Today I'm going to get the couple of piccy's I took printed and restart my scrapbooking, so we can enjoy looking at the wonderful memories we're making together.  I'm blessed to have my mom and Alfie, even if he is a drama dog that isn't keen on sand ;)

Yeah yesterday was a lovely day, just spending time together, talking about nothing in particular, enjoying the scenery as we drove and singing at the top of our voices, see there really is more to life than food!

It was also good to get away from work and normality, it might have only been a day but it feels like longer, how fab is that, I'm completely re-energised and ready for whatever today will bring.

I'm also enjoying find old recipes on my computer, this is another delicious one, that's so good for you too.  Could make today meat free Monday and enjoy this cheap, delicious and nutritious meal, I need to go shopping for lentils now, I do fancy it though so worth the drive.  Yeah I think I'll spend a few hours in the kitchen pre-cooking some meals for the week, save me time later on. 

Right I'm off to get ahead of the game before everyone else wakes up, here's to a fabulous week, focus on the healthy and the happy, tis what makes life worthwhile BeYOUtiful.
