Miss A, having started school in September, is now on that awe-inspiring path of learning to read and write. Reading two new books each week, and coming home with little notes every day and carefully drawn pictures of her family. It’s just been so lovely seeing how she is changing and developing.

You know when you find a new cookbook, one that you know you will turn to, time after time. There is almost something familiar about it, and it quickly finds a place on you cookbook shelf. Well this is just such a book. I absolutely love it, I’ve tried a couple of recipes in it so far and there are so many more I can’t wait to try.
Recipes from an Indian Kitchen, is a book of 100 recipes from across the whole of India. Each dish, is illustrated, some with the cooking stages photographed. Clear instructions and other beautiful bold images of India, a real delight for the eyes. Continue Reading
…It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
I’m a huge fan of Post-its, you may remember my post it note window art installation from last month. I use them to remember things myself, or to write notes to my family. They have been great for my Bento Box lunches that I make the children for school, I love a bit of Post-it note action!
Well with the Christmas season creeping very quickly upon us, I spent a very lovely leisurely hour, with a cuppa, going through all of the recent brochures and magazines that have been delivered. Yes really, I sat and organised Christmas with my trusty Christmas Planner. I used the Index Post-its to mark some new decorations, gift ideas, I even found some recipes to try over the Christmas break. All from the comfort of my home, now that’s what I call stress free Christmas planning!
I * may* have even found a Christmas Jumper for me…
A recent survey by Post-it Index found that 83 per cent of women have to flag up articles on a weekly basis, as they’re just too busy to read them properly at the time.
60 per cent of those surveyed have folded a corner over only to come back later and find it unfolded, losing their page. With Christmas such a busy time for mums, we want to know how you use Index around the home.
This is just way more efficient. I now, just need to spend some time ordering everything…online of course!
It will be our first Christmas with our Puppy Bennett, so I made sure I didn’t leave him out!
I think this is a such a time efficient way of doing it, you just need to put some time aside to peruse, the ability to absent-mindedly *cough* leave some magazines around with things you like…order and voila Christmas is sorted.
Now wonder if I can hire some Elves to do the wrapping?

I was given the Index Post-it notes in order to do this post, and a small cash reward. This post, is 100% honest however, Post-it notes rock!
