I actually almost forgot it was The home life project weekend, luckily the little nagging part of my brain, the one that reminds me to take Mischa’s PE kit to school on mondays, or that the milk is running low – reminded me the second I opened my eyes on Saturday morning.
On Saturday Sam had to head up to Ernshaw livery yard to get some footage of the horses for their website. So I had the option of hanging round the house with Mischa and Izzy until he had finished, or joining him. I was promised lots of lush green land for the girls to run around on and the perfect countryside back drop for my HLP photos – Of course I was in! What was only supposed to be a flying visit, resulted in us staying for around 3 hours, with so much to see, and Phil (the owner) only too willing to show us around, we spent the afternoon exploring and filling our lungs with crisp spring country air.
Once back from our adventures, I ignored the urge to order a takeaway, remembering my vow to eat a little healthier and so I got cracking on dinner, trying out one of the Davina – 5 weeks to sugar free recipes. I made up the Mushroom and butternut squash barley risotto. (I’ve managed to find a link of the recipe Here.) You MUST try it, it so delicious, not hard to make and the pearl barley is a fantastic – less stodgy alternative to rice. – I paired mine with a grilled chicken breast.
Once dinner was done and the girls had their daily fix of the power puff girls, it was bath and bed for them and a Saturday night catching up with The big bang theory and New girl for me.
All in all a wonderfully relaxed Saturday.
The little woman pretends.
