  • Lord I was at the end of my tether tonighthellip
    2 days ago by traceysblog Lord I was at the end of my tether tonight. I forgot what it feels like to lie in bed willing your child to just sleep. He sleeps with us (three in the bed and the little one said roll over) and needs us to lie with him while he drifts off but it's 80% easier than it used to be when he was a sleeper. This was around 1pm today and its the exact reason we had the bed time battle tonight. On days where we are out and about driving a lot I encourage him to sleep in…

Poached eggs, bacon (didn't eat the rind), beans and a speedy salad. That dressing is to die for but I only had a teeeeny bit. I also didnt drink the juice and enjoyed a peppermint tea. Love this place. Cheap, cheerful and lovely owner ❤  #slimmingworldtallaght   #slimmingworlddublin

    5 days ago by traceysblog American Style Blueberry Pancakes With Smoked Bacon, Syrup & Cream Off The Scale Delicious!!! The batter was made from 40g oats (hexb) 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons of sweetner, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence & a good dollop of  @gleniskinsta  0% fat plain Greek style yoghurt (free). Just blitz it all up! It makes 7 mini pancakes. The glenisk yoghurt works so much better than others as its thick and creamy and makes the pancakes fluffy and thick rather than eggy. I made them in batches of three and added a couple of blueberries to each one before flipping over. Served with…
