Day one of this blog......

Why am I doing this?????Well I'm finding that I'm fairly lonely, occassionally bored and very over facebook so here we go. What will I blog about, who knows probably random stuff. You will have to excuse my poor blogging skills, hopefully this will improve.

Perfect day

I was thinking the other day 'What would my perfect day be?'
So here is briefly what I thought, there are some censored bits.
  • Sunrise run on the beach with the dogs;
  • breakfast, no specifics on the type of food but I wouldn't be cooking or cleaning up;
  • pilates session and then a swim at the beach;
  • lunch with all my friends, once again I ain't cooking
  • afternoon horseride;
  • dinner with friends again;
  • an evening spent dancing to my favourite dj's;
  • watching the sun come up.
Thrown in there would be time spent hugging and playing with my little boy and time spent with his dad. Awesome food and beverages is a must as is the company I would keep on this journey. We can but dream, hey. My days aren't quiet like that. The other day which was memorable I managed to spill dog biscuits all through the kitchen, have wheetbix thrown on me and loose a botton on my shirt. When at work I discovered other crusty wheetbix, legs that needed shaving plus toe nails that hadn't been painted for god knows how long in shoes that displayed said legs. Got to stare at the computer for 8 hours then home to cleaning, dinner needing to be cooked and a lawn to mow.

Cake faces

First birthday cake face

Chase enjoying birthday cupcakes


So the first birthday has come and gone and we celebrated by having a pub lunch with cupcakes. It was a lovely day and made more wonderful by all the people that came. Thank you everyone. Dios really loved his gifts, playmates and the cupcakes.
Initially I started out trying to find a sugar free cake recipe but as Kao pointed out birthdays only happen once a year so a little sugar isn't that harmful. The cupcakes didn't look that beautiful but they tasted pretty good. The recipe is as follows (or what I can remember anyway)-
2 eggs
125mls cream
1 cup of self raising flour
3/4 cup caster sugar
tspn vanilla
I added one cup of coconut

Mix all  this together place in cupcake casing and bake in a 180 degree C oven for 15-20mins.
I added lemon, coconut and cream cheese icing to the cupcakes when they cooled.

Things that make me happy

Lately I have been able to go for a few runs and also a few horse rides ( yay) which has made me extremely happy to be back in the saddle as they say. It seems the older I am getting the more I like doing the same stuff I did when I was younger. Riding again is a bit of a tease though as I drive further than the time I get riding.But hey beggers can't be choosers.
Someone buy me this pony? He is an andalusian that is at the place I go riding.

This is Libby, well her eye anyway.

Dios turned one yesterday, we got there. I'm sure there will be alot more to learn now but things did seem to get easier from the 6 month point. Still forget I'm a mum most days though (when I'm away from him that is).
He has four teeth at the moment aswell.
