It’s Friday….. AGAIN…. not to mention the fact that it is almost June. Seriously, how can it nearly be June already? I still feel like I am in February. Bloody hell this year has flown by so fast it is scary.
You all know I have been hooked on podcasts lately. Well one of my favourite part about some podcasts is when they share new podcasts they have been listening to or tell us what they have been reading. So, today I am going to share a few things with you.
The Little Teashop on the Corner by Milly Johnson. I am just over half way through and have been reading a little bit at a time, whenever I can, for a while now. But it is good, I am really loving it. A very easy read.
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. This was the last book I read. I wasn’t sure about it at the beginning but then I couldn’t put it down. A fantastic read. Loved it and would recommend it. Another easy read. (Thanks FF for being my personal librarian and loaning me some great books, you will get them back one day…)
Unfortunately I don’t really have time for watching TV at the moment but I will tell you my dirty little secret. Every afternoon I head over to the kitchen to sort out dinner and get it ready. I make sure it is all in the bain marie by 6pm so I can sit down, with a glass of wine and watch …… Neighbours. It has become my new routine. I really enjoy sitting down, by myself for that 1/2 hour of mindless viewing. Apart from that I haven’t been able to watch anything. So you need to tell me what you have been watching.
I have listened to that many podcasts lately that I have caught up on all of my favourites and now have to wait each week for a new one to be released. So I have been searching the charts trying to find some newbies.
Death Sex & Money – this is my newest find and I am loving it. So many episodes to be listened to. Anna Sale is such a great interviewer. Remember Sarah Koenig from Serial, well I think Anna is just about as easy to listen to as Sarah. Onto it people. They talk to some really interesting people about everything from death, sex and money.
Each week I wait patiently for the next episode of Two Fat Expats, because I think this would nearly be my favourite podcast.And Chat 10 Looks 3 would come a close second to the Two Fat Expats. Chat 10 Looks 3 is Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales having a good old chat over a coffee and biscuits. They keep it real and are hilarious.
Honey Joys – oh dear lord…. I have made myself so sick on these this week. Talk about retro cooking. I make a quadruple batch and cook them as a slice. I add extra butter so they are nice an gooey. So much easier cooking them as a slice, rather than mucking around with patty pans. I really do promise to put some recipes up on the blog one day soon…. one day! But I am pretty sure most Cornflake boxes would have the recipe on them. The recipe I use, I think from memory goes something like this:
Honey Joy Slice
2 tablespoons white sugar, 2 tablespoons honey, 4.5 cups Cornflakes and 90g butter (but I would use about 120g). Melt butter sugar and honey in a saucepan until the sugar has dissolved, then pour over the Cornflakes, mix (I like to use a spatula). Line and grease a slice tray and cook at 180° for about 10-15 minutes. So that is a single batch, doesn’t make much and I don’t even think it would fill a whole slice tray. Enjoy!
To Camooweal Campdraft this weekend. The rest of the crew are already there. The kids and I will head in today once I have done all of my jobs. Oh and I still haven’t fully unpacked the car from when we were in town last, so that needs to be done. It still resembles a rubbish tip. Not pretty people. I will be sure to take photos and Instagram and Facebook the happenings at a campdraft. Well I will try anyway, we all know what happens when I mix with real people, I forget about my virtual world. ha ha ha.
Exhausted….. and can’t wait to get into Camooweal and just sit…. I would be happy to just sit by myself, maybe read a book… but I am sure there will be wine with friends. Mrs Savvy B will be there, looking forward to seeing her for a quiet one.
That I have cracked over 20,000 views on my blog this month. I am going to keep things real on here and share my stats with you all. I have no idea what stats other bloggers are getting and I have no idea if these stats are good or shit, so I am just going to keep it real and share it. So if you are a blogger out there you might care, otherwise you won’t give a toss. And that’s ok. I know they say you shouldn’t look at your stats, but I just can’t help myself. I am so bloody competitive. ha ha ha. I compete with myself really. I was going to be happy if I could do 10,000 views per month with blogging 3 times a week, so this is wonderful. And I have done it all myself. Usually when I have had huge views it was due to one of my blogging idols (yes I am looking at you Baby Mac, Mrs Woog and Have a Laugh on Me) sharing a post and hence my views sky rocketed for one or two days, or something out of the ordinary has happened. But I think this month it has all been pretty steady and I think I may well have cracked this one on my own. I might just go and pour myself a glass of something…ok, so I will wait until I get into Camooweal, 6:12am may be a little early for a wine, but my coffee has gone down a treat. Thanks so much to all of you for reading my rambles. God I go on, I have no idea how you put up with me sometimes. So thanks!!!
So pleeeeeeease tell me if you have any new Podcast recommendations. Please!!! It is your turn to share what you have been doing.
Have a great weekend you bunch of spunks!
