I’m going to start this article by saying that I can’t believe how quickly May flew by, and it just feels like yesterday when I was writing my April recap post. It’s been another fantastic month for me, considering the fact that it started out badly.
My theme for the month was DREAM BIG, not having my worries keep me down, and behind the scenes, I’ve taken several choices that are taking me in a completely different path. I apologise for being so vague, but I don’t want to say something before it is finalised.
Also, by being brave and taking the leap of confidence and thinking huge and then much better, I’ve focused hard on my online portfolio, collaborating with several potential clients, and increasing my blog and sales.
Earlier this month, I decided to treat myself to a safe living haul from Clean Snax, a fresh to me website. Surprisingly, I haven’t finished any of these snack bars, and the cans of almond butter haven’t vanished into thin air, or should I say, haven’t been inhaled by me. I like a decent food haul, and this one was chock-full of some of my favourites.
I also got a spiralizer as part of my haul, which has been on my wish list for a long time. I’m so happy I actually purchased one because I’ve spiralized the heck out of any vegetable in the fridge since then – it seems that I’m addicted!
Last month, we had some beautiful sunshine days, which provided an excellent opportunity to get out in the garden and begin preparing it for summer. I bought some lovely bedding plants to add some colour, and Alfie took care of all the manly tasks, such as painting the decking. I took advantage of an ice cream truck at the garden centre and got my first ice cream of the year.
I began the Couch to 5K training programme last month and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m just enjoying running right now, and I can quickly see it being a hobby of mine. My Race for Life event is just six weeks out, and I’m really looking forward to it. I’d like to compete a few more events this summer to keep the running bug alive.
Of course, one of the most important things for me last month was revamping the site, which you all loved. Thank you for all of your positive feedback on the redesign; I’m delighted that you like it. I’m only changing a few things here and there, so it’s almost over.
Another significant event was the delivery of my first newsletter to your inboxes. I was a little anxious when I sent the message, but I’m happy I did. I’ve just begun putting together a recipe collection for my first E-book, which will be available only to email subscribers (you can sign up here).
In other news, my guest post on the Clipper Teas blog about the healing force of nature is now live, and you can read it here.
You all seemed to like my Matcha Tea Energy Balls recipe; if you haven’t experienced it yet, it’s a delicious afternoon pick-me-up. With my Loaded Pitas with Roasted Vegetable Salad recipe, I have provided a fast and quick lunch choice. Look for another tasty recipe on the blog later this week, but in the meantime, take a look at my freshly organised recipe list, which I’m always admiring!
- We’ve been watching Breaking Bad and have been completely enamoured of it.
- Aiden was able to spend the whole night in his cot.
- My grandmother is turning 80 years old.
- Aiden’s hand and footprints were cast in mud, and he had an underwater photo session.
- The shining sun!
- Baby clothing that are adorable
- Observing my toddler becoming more mobile
- Have I said how much I adore my spiralizer?
- Cake and more cake
- Making strides with my running
- Affie being the best, always!
PLAN is my motto for June; we’re in the process of deciding on a date for Aiden’s christening this summer, and I’m just looking forward to planning it and throwing a huge party afterwards. This month, I plan to write and complete the bulk of my E-book, which I am very excited about. Also, with my enigmatic note at the top of the page, I have a lot of preparation to do about that as well, which might entail some significant adjustments for us, and I sincerely hope we can pull it off.
