I've only recently started eating fish. An at that, it's only certain kinds. I can't eat any that smell overly fishy. I just can't lol. But this recipe is done with a frozen fish bought from Iceland. It doesn't smell fishy or taste overly fishy.
I wrapped it loosely in tin foil and cooked it in a fan oven at 180c for 35mins
Great family dinner that's quick and easy.

Well I have took pictures of two rooms before we start redecorating in the summer.
First here is our bathroom. The bathroom is pretty small so I had to do it in sections.
We are planning on ripping all the tiles out and getting new ones for round the bath and painting the other walls. Having all these tiles was a good idea at the time. Not so good to clean!!
I was going to do the bedroom in this blog too. But I think it will be too much for one blog. So I will do a part 2 next time :)

Here is our week in photos :) no firsts this week. I'm hoping against hope that one of these weeks I will be like 'wooooo Holly is walking' yeah, but not this week :(
Thursday- Here is pickles and harls all snugged :)
Friday- I know no one wants to see my nasty foot. But I would like to highlight the dangers of walking long distances with a pram lol. Didn't help it was drizzle rain and my heel was rubbing :(
Not very exciting this week. But I hope you all enjoy. I also hope you all had an awesome week.
So sorry, this was meant to go up last night and I fell asleep lol.
So I'm doing a review on the Vaseline Red Lip Tint. Now I do know it is only a tint. But I still wasn't impressed with it!! I still expect a tint to tint my lips and I just don't see a tint with this product at all.
I love the design if the packaging. I like that colour of red (I need to find it in a lip colour) and I like the cityscape design.
It is a lovely colour when you see it in the tin. I'm just not too impressed once it's on the lips.
Overall, I wouldn't buy this product as a lip tint. I think it's just to sheer. As a mummy with a nearly toddler I need lip colours that are quick and easy. This is still as good as the other Vaselines in regards to keeping the lips moisturised. But just not a lip colour in my opinion :)

Well I was planning on doing a lip product review today, but I will need to put that off till tomorrow. Mark needed my car for work, and he's still not home. That's where the product is btw lol it's in the car. Not that mark took it to work with him hahahahaha
So instead I will just do a little update on my day. As mark needed my car today, I took a holiday. Now normally I would keep Holly with me. But there was a few things I wanted to get done today, so I sent her to the childminders.
I didn't really do anything that interesting to be honest. I wanted to get some rooms tidied so I can take photos of them before they are redone and after. So I done 2 rooms today which I will post tomorrow or today lol at some point.
As I didn't have the car, my mum was going to come round at about 5pm for a while to see us. But also as I didn't have a car I had to walk to pick Holly up. Well what an adventure that turned out to be lol.
I left the house at 4.05pm and I didn't get back till 5.20pm lol. It took a bit longer than expected and my poor mum was left outside my house for 20mins lol. On they way down I am actually surprised no one reported the crazy lady walking down the side of main roads with an empty pram lol. I think some people thought I was out to steal a baby. It was a bit more complicated to get there than I though. The route I took, I couldn't come back with Holly as I was actually walking on the roads because there was no paths. I stay in a big town. Why don't they have paths connecting all the different bits up!!!
So on they way back I had to use google maps and it was taking me through forests and past houses that looked abandoned and past streets I had never heard of!! So let's just say I won't be walking again.
Then I think I got shin splints for the first ever time lol. I used to run a lot before I had Holly and never experience anything like the pain I had while walking. I mean walking lol. So perhaps I should maybe start exercising more.
Oh one last thing!! How hard is it to push a pram up hills!! I thought my lungs were going to explode!!
Oh well that was the most exciting bit of the day lol.
Hope you guys have all had an awesome week and have a great weekend planned

So the only thing I have new for the house is this
This is called a Snaily or a Dischidia. This is a type of Milk Weed. The snail she'll is a proper snails shell from the Thailand rice paddys. Being an animal lover of all types, this bit did make me cringe. I am just hoping they don't kill them just for this, and that they are already dead (please just let me live in my bubble :) ). The reason is can grow in a snail she'll is that it has shallow roots, so it doesn't needs soil to grow. The only downside to this cool looking plant is, it can get wild. So you need to keep an eye on it and keep it clipped back.
Since it's been lovely weather. I have done some stuff in the back garden.
Normally, I would like to grow most of these from seeds myself, and I have done in the past years. However now with looking after Holly, Sewing and all the other craft things I do including looking after all my animals. I simply don't have time to grow them from seeds.
I am going to try and grow my Sweetpeas, Sunflowers and Sented Night Stock from seeds. We will see.

Here is our week in photos :)
Monday- we visited the local loch and it was Holly's first time. She loved it. I'm thinking it should be a regular thing for her :)
Tuesday- we have had out kitten Pickles for 3 months now, and this is one of the first times our older cat Cheety has let her sleep with him :)
Wednesday- here is Pickles trying to squeeze into my onsie with me lol
Thursday- I had this saffron and asparagus salad. Was amazing. I will put the recipe up soon for it :)
Saturday- we went to Gullane to see a relative and I sat in back with Holly, and she held my had for no reason. She just pointed at it and when I gave her my had she held it, and sat like that for ages. That's defo a first!!
Sunday- was out first ever Geocaching outting :) here is everyone trying to keep up with me haha
I hope everyone had an awesome week. :)

Well the Easter baking was a fail!! Not a huge fail, a bit if it worked. But a fail all the same.
I don't do baking from scratch, with having to look after Holly. It's either done last thing at night, or squeezed into her naps. If I'm baking cakes, I use the Asda chosen by you mixes. If I'm baking cookies, I use Betty Crocker.
This is the stuff used. Basically all you add is water, mix and cut. So I used this Easter cutter from Hobby Craft for £3.99, and it only half worked.
I rolled my mix out to make them, then cut them and cooked them for 12 mind at 170c fan assisted, and this is what I got.
The second thing I wanted to talk about was geocaching. I have only today learned what this is. If you don't know what it is, then google it. But it's amazing. Basically it's a world wide treasure hunt. People leave tiny boxes with a log book or trinkets to swap, and you use the app with the gps system to of find them.
I havent tried it yet. I'm planning on dragging everyone out tomorrow :) so I will update you all later on how I get on. Let me know if any of you have heard of this or tried it :)

Well there has been 3 firsts this week!! Very exciting stuff :)
First was Holly's first visit to a swing park!! She was very excited and wanted a shot on everything. Here are some pictures.
Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of her second first. But she took her first steps!!! Two tiny steps she took and I was crying lol. She hasn't done it again since but it was amazing to see her do that!!!
Her third and final first this week, was making us an Easter card! Of course her childminder helped her. But I thought it was just so cute!!!
