First day of March

One thing I really love about my new phone is that it came with a few soothing alarm tones.  When I awoke to the alarm clock this morning I got it into my head instantly that we were quite late.  The boys and I had fifteen minutes to get ready and leave the house.  But when we got to an empty school after our 30 minute walk, I realized we were indeed an hour early.  Apparently I was too tired this morning to read my clock correctly.  The picture to the left is from the honey selection at the store we browsed this morning.

Beautiful pink flowers that we saw on the walk home from school. 
Spoiled my boys after school with treats. I have a soft spot for those cute little faces. 

Sweet stuff

 I will admit that I love to do special things for my boys and spoil them when I can.  So with Ryan gone and a bad sweet tooth myself, we had breakfast at Starbucks before school.  Starbucks is the only place on the way to school since we walk and do not have a car.  I let each of my sons choose what they wanted, within reason, and had hot cocoa to warm up from the cold.  When I picked them up after school we decided we would have takeaway as a special treat for dinner.  It is pretty much just curry or chinse, though there is a ‘Chippy’ (Fish & Chips joint) a little further away.  We opted for Chinese and brought it home to eat.  The boys love getting Lemon chicken and fried rice with egg.  I chose the spiciest option, but sadly not as spicy as I would like.

Chinese takeaway… its the mexican ‘to go’ from England.
