Get Good Summer Update

Well where did those 10 weeks go? I set myself 5 goals 10 weeks ago and here is my update. I have to confess once again I have not done as well as I had wanted. Partly due to life getting in the way. It turns out that I am in my usual style I have managed to get a tropical food poisoning bug without going anywhere tropical! So the last few weeks have not been that successful as I haven't been up to doing that much. But what have I achieved? Well I put some colour into my garden.

I have made my own playdough and bubble dough. Both so easy to do, I wonder why I have never done it before. Tidying the house is a work in progress but I feel as though I might get there at some point. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Our bedroom is certainly tidier after I won an ottoman from Emma in Bromley. As for crafting, I have neglected that goal. But when you don't feel good you don't have the concentration to do much. I have however, got some ideas for Halloween from Pintrest so watch this space.

The goal I have done best on is cooking.

I have made  plum crumble

I have made some Whoopie Pies

Mojito Style Ice lollies

and Lemon and Chocolate Drizzle Shortbread

So maybe my gold for the autumn should be to go on a diet!


  1. Oh wow - your summer has been full of tasty treats - they look fab! #getgoodsummer

  2. Your baking looks amazing - especially those whoopie pies - scrummy. So sorry you've been unwell. I hope you're on the mend now x

  3. Ooh, that baking looks delicious! Hope you are recovering from the bug. #GetGoodSummer

    The antibiotics are working well thanks. Whoopie pies are a little disappointing. The boys liked them tho x
