Mixed Blooms

May Day holidays just went past and the boys are deep into study mode as they are in the midst of their Mid Year exams.   They have completed their oral and composition papers and will be doing their Paper 2 soon.

To  help ease up the study stress I have been buying fresh flowers for the house to brighten up the place.

The flowers that I buy can’t be compared to the blooms that I saw at the flower dome a few weeks ago.

There were the most unusual flowers in the dome which I do not normally see in florists .they  certainly make good centerpieces  and conversation starters.

Sometime if  the objective is not to make the centerpiece too outstanding, these types of flowers would make a good selection.

These while blue flowers too would make the home more cozy with it’s addition.

Flowers are great visual stimulus to perk up one’s mood instilling positive vibes  within you.

I’ll be making another trip down to the Flower Dome soon to view their latest exhibition on tulips.

How has the start of May been for you?

Kids Bites

The kids really can eat nowadays. Each time we go out I need to order 4 adult portions so that everyone will be able to get their fill. As the kids age they get more adventurous and willing to try out different foods. Doggie boy now is less resistant to different types of meats and is willing to eat steak when we dine out.

There are restaurants like TCC which offer whole day breakfasts. I find this a bonus when dining out with the kids as they sometimes do request for the weirdest foods for lunch.

At one period of time Tiger girl was constantly requesting to eat pancakes/ waffles at any time of the day. Having them for lunch that day certainly made her extremely happy.

Spaghetti  Bolgnese is a dish which the boys and me love.  It’s fast to cook and also very filling for the tummy.

The Hawaiian Pizza from Lenas is one of the best pizzas that we have tasted so far.  The kids love ordering pizza from this restaurant and can easily finish 2 large pizzas for a meal.

What have your kids been eating lately?
