WIWTM: April 2015

I don’t usually suffer really badly with any PMS, apart from mildly sore boobs perhaps. But nothing to write home about. This month? Oh, WOW. I had the period from hell. For a week beforehand I felt so ill with back ache and headache. My back was so bad I was starting to wonder if I had a kidney infection. Add to that intermittent tummy troubles and it wasn’t much fun at all. Then my period arrived three days early and I felt really nauseous and crampy for that first heaviest day. Thanjfully I had my LadyBits angry uterus heat pack to help ease the cramping. And I spent most of the day feeling sorry for myself on the sofa. But it definitely wasn’t a happy period.

It meant we had some happy days in the garden and a couple of days out too. And now I’m back to the usual routine of my day being broken up in chunks based around school and nursery pick-ups.

Lucy’s List – April (week 2)

Things have been a bit busy here, with both kids and the husband at home for Easter. My home is a wreck and there is SO much washing to do. WHY do the school holidays seem to generate so many dirty clothes?! But the weather has been glorious. We’ve all spent a lot of time in the garden, having a tidy up and getting the veggie patch ready for planting.

I’ve found the slow cooker really useful and I’ve been using it at least a couple of times a week. We can have a family day out, or a full day in the garden, and come through the door tired and hungry to find a decent meal ready for us, instead of having to fall back on a takeaway or beans on toast.

Vita Coco Kids

Coconut is having a bit of a moment, isn’t it? We’ve used creamed or dessicated coconut in our cooking and baking for years. More recently I started using fresh coconut milk on my cereal instead of cows’ milk. I actually prefer it. Cows’ milk tastes a bit weird to me now. I see more and more people talking about the benefits of pressed coconut oil for all manner of skin ailments. And a few years ago, loads of celebrities were conspicuously papped with their trendy bottles of coconut water. Coconut is fast becoming the health conscious person’s go-to ingredient.
