Welcome to my monthly round up. I’ve been a bit busy recently with wedding planning, training at work and exploring Newcastle, but I still managed to squeeze in some new stuff.
This isn’t actually new, as such. It’s an album I bought about a hundred years ago and only rediscovered this month. I think it’s from something like 2007 or thereabouts.
We found it while backing up all our music on our server and, well, it hasn’t been off since. Over use might well be the reason I stopped listening to it in the first place, but I haven’t quite tired of it yet. I’m a big fan of Norah Jones and anyone who can sing well and play the piano at the same time, so I was nice to hear all these songs again. And the bonus was that I seemed to have remembered all the words.

I was recently looking for some little pieces of jewellery that I could easily take to the US with me and that didn’t make me look like a younger version (a much younger version) of Barbara Cartland.
The company was recommended to me by my sister and I purchased a pair of sparkly earrings and a delicate bracelet that would complement my engagement ring and, you know…make me look like I’d made an effort for once. This is not an easy task so bravo, S&D.
You can find more jewellery, bags, scarves and a whole host of other stuffs HERE.
Super Berry Granola:
As Les so quickly pointed out to after I bought a VAT of this stuff; I stopped eating my sugary breakfast bars only to replace them with the sugar from this.
I chose to ignore him completely and feel virtuous about eating a bowl of Lidl or Tesco’s branded berry granola (also comes in other flavours) by mixing it with yogurts and literally stuffing it in to my face until I can eat no more.
It is exceptionally good, and, if I recall correctly, quite cheap. It may well be full of sugar, which might account for my recent bout of hyper activity, but it is quick and easy and, for me, that’s usually key. I get to the whole ‘is it good for me?’ thing a bit further down the road.
I grab a bag to take to work on a Monday and either eat it dry or, as I said before, pop a few tablespoons (let’s say 8) in my yogurt pot. I can then check my emails, drink my coffee and get myself sorted for the day ahead.
Do watch out, though. I have occasionally had reason to get up from my desk, only to find that I have a little pile of granola on my lap/down my top/all over the floor. I said it was good, I didn’t say it was easy.
What have you been up to this August?
