    3 days ago by traceysblog UNREAL dinner. Just 2 syns for mayflower powder (I mixed it with water and used the liquid to mop up all the flavour in the pan and give it a Singapore noodles flavour). Tonnes of speed food in this - bok choy, peppers, mushrooms, onion, ginger and spinach. Chinese 5 spice, soy sauce, garlic, chilli with chicken and prawns. Fresh coriander on top. All done in one pan (bar softening noodles in boiling water for 5 mins) and every bit as nice as a takeaway. I just didn't add the spicy things till the end so Billy had his with

    4 days ago by traceysblog With all the madness of moving and general life over the last few weeks we haven't been to the park in ages. I've become far too accustomed to the warm car and house and let me tell you, my soul needed some fresh air. We had a lovely lunch together ( @jens_journey_ie  gorgeous tomato and basil soup, but I make it in the slow cooker) and toasties and now we have the whole playground to ourselves. It's a snuggly afternoon/evening ahead because I've got work to do. We also have an earlier start than normal tomorrow so a bath and early

    4 days ago by traceysblog Sunday night already. Ready for another busy week ahead. I can't believe we've gotten so much done in a week. Hoping to just enjoy a bit more of normal life in the house this week. This past week was wonderful but BUSY. Sure how was it going to be anything different The whole house is really really coming together now. I just need to build up the confidence to even *think* about approaching the attic room. It's literally a dumping ground and I'm quite enjoying pretending it's not even there

    6 days ago by traceysblog Our first family breakfast in our new home. Its hard to believe that at this exact time last week the removals van had pulled up to take everything from the granny flat to the new house. A week later and we've gotten so much sorted already, I can't believe it.  @patman_scoop  may very well have developed an addiction to building flat pacl furniture and this is a very very good thing. So looking forward to sorting out more bits and pieces today and our  @dfs  furniture arriving. Then it'll really feel like our living room is snuggle worthy! Keep an
