    15 hours ago by traceysblog Did anyone else's child live on sugar this weekend? It was one of those weekends for us. Loads of out and about stuff which was lovely but inevitably lead to loads of sugar. Don't be fooled by this photograph. He has a beautiful plate of fresh healthy food in front of him (my friend is literally a party queen) but he's eating a party ring. His t-shirt speaks volumes though. Make some noise he did. I ended up staying over at a friend's house last night (we all did) and I was up playing a board game until 3am (though

I was in the garden letting the dog out to go to the toilet and Billy started saying "shoe shoe" to what I thought was a garden ornament. He was doing it over and over again and pointing at the sky saying "fly away". I thought it was a cute game. Nope an actual pigeon the whole time The poor little thing couldn't fly and was petrified He was still there a couple of hours later and I was panicking because I had

    4 days ago by traceysblog I met Peter 9 years ago. If someone had of told me that that we would be getting married and he would be organizing my hen party I'd have laughed. If someone had of told me that my hen party would involve doing this in front of a television crew I'd have thought they were off their rocker. It was such a brilliant day though. Wine, cheese, cake and a bit of still life drawing on national TV.  #henparty   #dttbirl   #dttbire   #lifedrawing   #girlsnight

    7 days ago by traceysblog YES ✔✔✔✔ My random risotto/paella hybrid dinner turned out to be an absolute beauty. 100% syn free too. I picked up risotto in the  @aldi_ireland  special buys today, raw king prawns and hot smoked salmon! Rough method is to dice an onion and 2-3 cloves of garlic and fry using frylight. Then add about 1.5 cups of risotto rice to the pan and fry with some more fry light for a few minutes. Then make up about a litre of stock (I used chicken stock) and add the stock ladle by ladle and replace as the rice absorbs the stock.
