Smear Campaign!

No, it's not a post about slander and scandal.  Just simply wanted to say that I had a smear test yesterday and remind all you ladies out there how important it is to have them done.  It only takes 2 minutes and may just save your life!  Nuff said.
Well, after the joys of Bubba loving his first real taste of solid food courtesy of the fab products at Ella's Kitchen he decided to celebrate with a monumental sleep which lasted from 8pm last night until 6.15am this morning without waking.  I had to squint at the alarm clock to check I wasn't seeing things!  He's been a happy bunny this morning too and enjoyed some of this:

Don't forget to enter the competition to win some free pouches of Ella's Kitchen!
On a different note, I got the notion yesterday to make pasties.  I have no idea why as I don't really eat pasties but I'm so glad I did.  I would show you a photo of the little blighters but I made four of them and they're all gone!  It was easy peasy as I used Jus-Rol shortcrust pastry ready rolled, cut it into 4 equal rectangles, lined them with some cubes of cheese and chopped, fresh spinach then filled them with a pre-cooked mix of mince, onions, mushrooms, garlic, a spoon of gravy granules and the usual seasoning. Brushed them with beaten egg and sealed them up before cooking for about 20 mins.  Delicious!  The filling possibilities are endless and they're so quick and easy to make.  Perfect for picnics now the summer is coming again...hooray!
Bubba is being babysat by the Jumperoo so I'm gonna whizz round doing some washing, pour away his bath water and make a brew.  I need to get myself geared up for the arrival of the treadmill I won last night on Ebay.  I am sooooo sick of being 2 stone heavier than my pre-baby weight.  Even then I was 10 stone so I'm aiming to lose 3 stone in total bringing me back down to a weight I haven't seen since my early 20's.  I knew I kept my favourite size 8 Levi jeans for a I just gotta run, run, run!  I'll keep you posted on my lack of progress.....eating brioche and pasties for breakfast is not a good start!!  Hey-ho :) xx


  1. Ugh. Maybe if they called it something nicer than 'Smear' we might be more up for it?!?!?! Thanks for the reminder, Kerry. It's a good one. x

  2. Very true Maxabella, although I've been sat here trying to think of an alternative name for it that sounds less disgusting but can't!
    It was much less of an ordeal this time though, perhaps because I've had a baby now.....I did face Bubba towards the door, that's a sight no son should ever see!!
