Snow, cakes and blogging #Little Loves

Happy Friday Friends. Do you have snow where you are? I'm stuck up on the hill with 2 days now but the sun is shining and I'm hoping we'll get out soon. 
I'm linking up with the lovely Morgana over at Coffee, Work, Sleep, Repeat for #Littleloves.

I've been reading lots of blogs this week, catching up on all I've missed out over the holidays. With back to school madness, I've been doing lots of homework with Jasmin. The break has gotten her out of practice and homework is taking a little longer than normal. 

We've been watching Operation Transformation with the last two week. There's a local woman taking part in the show this year so we love seeing how she getting on. Jasmin and I took part in a 5k last weekend as part of the Operation Transformation program. You can read about that {here}

It's my brothers birthday. Happy Birthday Daffy!! And for the past 3 year {so he says} he's asked me to make a chainsaw cake for him. I never thought I'd be able to make one though. I'm the family cake baker so it falls on me to make the cakes. I don't mind. Who doesn't love cake.

Oh, and lot of Banana Bread. {recipe here}

We wore lots of boots and woolly hats this week with the snow and ice. I can't wait to be able to get out and walk and run slowly. I got these amazing Sketchers memory foam trainers for Christmas and they haven't gotten nearly enough wear yet. 

All I've heard with the last few days is, "Mom, Mom, it'snowing, it's snowing!!". When really it was raining with a little snow. I really wish we did get snow instead of this frozen mess that we do have but I'll take a day off any day. The other thing we heard is One Directions album. 'd like to say that my 8 year old got it for Christmas but no, it was me. And I just love it. Yes, I'm probably, just slightly, too old to love them but I just do. 

And Lastly
I've started a new series here on the blog. It's called "20 Questions : Getting to know the Blogger". I will be featuring a new blogger or small business owner every fortnight, where they answer 20 questions and introduce themselves to my readers. If you want to take part, just shoot me as email at

Have a great weekend everyone!
