EyeSpy: My Morning Ritual
My boys are my alarm clock - most morning they run to our bedroom (way too early) to have a morning snuggle with mum ( i love that!). Somedays I make the effort to wake up before everyone and its a real pleasure to enjoy a cup of tea in silence....
once the boys are up its then full on rush rush to get ready and out the door by 8am - they just want to play and watch cartoons so it gets crazy!
on the days I dont work its not as bad and we even walk to school which is always nice.

I made a cheesecake on Saturday - some of the girls wanted the recipe so here goes,
250g biscuits (crushed)
100g butter melted
mix together and press onto the bottom of pie dish or tin

whip together
250g cream cheese
Juice of 1 lemon
200g condensed milk

in seperate bowl whip 200ml thick cream
mix whipped cream with cheese mixture - pour ontop of the biscuits and refrigerate for 2-3hrs
i then crushed a 'peppermint crisp' chocolate on top for decoration.

    I always try to get up earlier than the kids so I can get a moment of silence and some computer time without having to pour cereal and such! I wish my 3yr old would cuddle instead of jumping on me in bed!

  10. Hi Anastasia. Boys are adorable aren't they? Especially at the age they are at. I don't want mine to grow but ofcourse that isn't possible lol.
    Have a lovely new month :)
