Slimming World – The Five Best Savoury Snacks For Your Syns

standard October 26, 2015 4 responses

Disclaimer: I thought long and hard (about 20 seconds worth of internal debating, it’s a lot for me) about adding cheese to this Slimming World list. Cheese is godly and is the supreme overlord of savouriness, but I didn’t think it fit in this post. Perhaps it should have its own? Or perhaps it’s too good to trivialise on a blog. Go buy some and healthy A the F out of it. Thanks for the kcals, cheese.

Only love for the chocolate, Amy? No savoury snacking? Shame on you! You’ve, many times, heard my assertions that chocolate and crisps should be bed buddies and eaten together. Not literally at the same time though, gross. Just one, then the lovely other. This is why I’m fat isn’t it? Ah well; read on everyone…

I’m a positive guy. I’m happy and optimistic and rarely have a real moan. But I put in about 1.5 hours of driving to and from work each day and that gives me some time to sound out the little irritants all around us. I’ve started recording my thoughts, here’s another one.

Top Five Future Moments That’re Making Me Want To Skip The Baby Stage

standard July 9, 2015 2 responses

Yeah I said it. I see a lot of talk of new parent ‘baby’ excitement on the internet. A plethora of ‘firsts’ being looked forward to; giggles, words, steps, piano symphonies, whatever. I’m more about the long con. Babies are alright, I’ll love all of mine (yes I’m planning more already) unconditionally and will never see them harmed but I’m also fully and gleefully able to admit that for the initial months (years?) together they’re ugly, crying, demanding and expensive poop and vomit factories. What really warms my cockles is all the things I’ll be sharing with my son when he’s old enough to know that soiling oneself is neither fun nor remotely acceptable. Here are 5 things I literally do have to wait for (but don’t want to have to!) because we can’t skip the baby stage:

Babymoov Baby Star

I’m starting out with the most girly on the list. I’ve justified it in my head though – it suits a baby boy, not (just) a grown woman. I can get away with it if it’s ‘for Mason’.

Bonus Points:

  • Transparent pocket for medicines n stuff.
  • Amy liked the style. Come on now, we’ve gotta be fair.
  • Large changing mat.
  • It’s not massive (actually, none on my list are but this is the bag that inspired me to keep away from the ones you could store your cricket bats in – there’s loads).

Moot Points: Read More
