Allo Allo

Barny has been a tad pre-occupied with the world cup also

Its been too long. The World Cup and The Tour de France - did you really think I'd have time to blog?!  I didn't even see a single bit of Wimbledon either! The past few weeks have been busy, busy and some more busy. My youngest finishes pre-school next week - cue wailing! I'm so sad about this I cannot begin to tell you but I shan't dwell on it, however, it does mean getting cards (already purchased), sunflowers (purchased and about to die), pot plants (painted and varnished), wine bottle and bag for the teachers. My eldest two children have an end of year performance of Mary Poppins and I have lots of buttons to glue on a hat and make a sash as my daughter is the pearly queen.  I will also be watching their performance in the evening and day. Let us not forget Sports Day!

If a chocolate sponge cake bear could talk he would say "I like your flags"

Then its our anniversary at the end of the month so present purchased - its wood this year. I got a mallet to twat him over the head with - just kidding. Its a wooden Eiffel tower as that's where we honeymooned. I like it anyhow. The car had a tow bar fitted and a bike thing to attach to it arrived also in preparation for our family holiday in France. Oh, and our hallway has been re-decorated, the playroom has been cleared out of rouge bits of toys (2 bin liners full) and another room has been sorted. My daughter's bedroom is at defcon 5 and I need to psych myself up for that one.

So there you have all my excuses. On the exercise front I managed 2 x kettle bell workouts and 1 x 50 lengths of swimming last week. This week has been somewhat dismal - 1 x kettle bell and its Thursday already. I haven't logged onto myfitnesspal or been wearing my fitbit. I have derailed somewhat but thankfully I'm no bigger - I am the same weight. I need to start the before and after pics again - perhaps I'll do that next week.

I feel better for writing this as when I don't blog it makes me forget about trying to lose weight.

Finally, we were sent these bad boys to review....

Meet Chocolate Barny
These are little cake bears with chocolate or strawberry in the centre. They come in little foil packets and the kids woffed them down. I mean how european do they look?! My eldest who is 10 said "I'm going to rip his head off" I don't suppose the manufacturers would want that to be a slogan anytime soon but it made me chuckle!  I will certainly be getting some for the beach in France and given that they originate from there it will be very fitting.

How cute is he and not babyish for my 10 year old!

Love the packaging


we were given two packets of Barny to eat free of charge for the purpose of this review. As ever I've been honest! These will be great for the beach
