Been Sick & Down

The last few days have been quite rough.  I have been pretty sick with a fever and had a bad day at work. The cold is subsiding now and nothing beats a rough work day by coming home to hugs from my boys.  We had a movie night tonight and it really helped bring a smile back on my face. I love my family so much. With the last day of March, I hope for a more positive April. Then for some flowers in May. :)

Playing Mass Effect with the boys as we near the very end of the game. 
Purple soup! Its Cabbage and Paleo and so yummy! 

Watching The Secret of Moonacre with my boys. I am so in love with every one of Maria Merryweather’s gowns.

Easter Hair Cuts

I gave my boys fair cuts at work today to get ready for their Easter photos. Afterwards we went to the big playground to run out all their sillys.  We finished with ice cream as we waited for our train ride home.  I am really being spoiled by all this warm weather. I am not looking forward to any wet rainy weather ahead. The boys and I had a great time out and I am really enjoying our extra time together while they are on their Easter break.

Setting the Clocks Back

We set our clocks forward today and it is going to take some use to being woken up by the sun before my alarm goes off.  The boys cleaned their room so I took them outside for Adventure. Ronan dressed as Indiana Jones. Love the sun as we walk.  The flowers were out in bloom.  We enjoyed a picnic lunch in the park to take use of all the warm sun before we go back to cold weather. 

On another note: When I was stateside, I got so addicted to soda. I would go to the McDonalds drive through in Tucson just to get a large diet doctor pepper no ice, because it was cheaper than getting a small bottle or can. When we got to England we had a few coca colas and fantas, because the recipe here is much different (way fizzier too) and ive always preferred it. But then we just stopped buying it and onlydrinking just spring water, carbonated water, and tea. I broke down recently and bought a soda because i was very thirsty after work and there were no bottle waters left in the machine. I had two sips and threw the bottle out because it was so sweet to me. I’m glad I finally got the caffeine/sugary drinks out of my system and broke the addiction. Now if I can just finalize my addiction to carbs and I can really go all out on Paleo.

Fun angles with cell phone cameras. 😉 

Setting clocks forward. Not so excited about missing an hour of sleep. Miss Hawaii…we didn’t have to worry about this in summerland.

Costa barista gave me Raspberry tea instead of plain ice tea. Tastes like candy. Due to my accent, I don’t feel pressing the issue. Gross.
