Good Friday — March 25, 2016

Good Friday

So here’s a different feeling… I’m feeling ok. It’s 8.50am on Good Friday, I’m up, showered, coffeed, been and done the weekly shop and I’ve come home and baked a batch of delicious four seed flapjacks (recipe below).

I’m now sitting down with a cup of coffee enjoying said flapjacks and watching the TV.
Today is going to be great. I’m feeling positive, the sun is out, I’m off the the zoo with the boys and my ex (weird, but boys need to see we can co-exist) and then I’m meeting a friend for a couple of beers this evening.

It’s going to be a Good (Fri)day!


RECIPE: Four seed flapjacks

250g butter
175g muscavado sugar
600g oats
4tbls golden syrup 

2 handfuls sunflower seeds
1 handful pumpkin seeds
Small handful poppy seeds
Medium handful sesame seeds

4. Put into a baking tray and pre-cut with a pizza slice

In yesterday’s post I wondered “what makes a home”?

Excited chatter, arguing and laughter. That’s what.

My boys are here today and they’re with me until Sunday now. This is the first time they’re going to spend this amount of time with me and while there is still an element of us all getting used to our ‘new space’ together, for the next few days at least, it will feel like home.

That, and home cooking…
