Tip of the Day

Posting has been somewhat sporadic of late, I've just been too tired! Putting this down to a poorly little man waking 5+ times a night,and new painkillers that make me drowsy. So no matter how many times I go to bed at 9pm, or sleep during Boy's daytime naps, I'm not catching up. But I have got time for this top tip: for cooling hot porridge (or in this case, readybrek) at breakfast time for impatient tots! Whenever I make a smoothie, I make a little extra and pour it into ice-cube trays for freezing. Then pop one or two out into hot porridge, for flavour as well as to cool it down! Even more fun if you use funny shaped ice-cube trays like our heart-shaped one from ikea. Makes healthy but boring porridge much more interesting! Also would work with frozen baby purees, such as stewed apples etc. Lots of fun to stir in the swirly colours for my Boy. With his hands. Such lovely manners!

What a great idea. Hope you catch up on your sleep soon, I know how disabling it can be. I can't think properly without a decent night's sleep. Or sting a together sentence!!

Lovely, showed the piccie to my kids and they loved the heart. Know what you mean about the tiredness; it grinds you down.
