Apricot and Almond Tart

Friday, 31 July 2015

This week I'm a really excited and proud mummy. My son has learned to ride a bike!! A couple of months ago he was given a bike that he absolutely loved. He has been taking the bike to the park, without trying to ride it. Just walking with it to the park and back. Despite my best efforts, explaining how to ride a bike verbally to a 5-year-old boy didn't work for either of us.

Something I was not keen on was the use of stabilisers. I really think they are useless, as they make you learn to ride a bike twice: firstly with, then without. I am obviously not an expert, but I believe having stabilisers prevents the child from learning intuitively where their balance point is. But after a couple of months, I started to wonder whether I was completely wrong and the stabilisers were the key.

Strawberry & Blueberry No-Bake Cake

Since I started this blog a lot of you have told me you won't try to prepare the recipes by yourself no matter how easy they look in the blog. The reason? It looks like you don't believe you will be able to do it. I always answer the same: they are really easy recipes, and if you don't give them a go then you will never find out.

A couple of weeks ago I saw amazing pictures from a recipe in Facebook. It was a berries no bake cheesecake and looked sooo easy to make that I thought, why not?

I bought all the ingredients and prepared it. Step by step. For goodness sake, it was even called "easy" no bake cheesecake!

I have to admit that I have always felt massively attracted by miniature versions of normal things. Miniature doll house furniture, miniature perfume bottles, babies, kittens and of course miniature jam jars. When I see a miniature I normally shout in an emotional outburst.... HOW CUTE IS THIS!?

Well, not always always. There are situations where big is certainly better... I believe this blog is really wrecking my reputation.

Anyway, I find miniature things so cute and fascinating that I even have a Pinterest board!

After my little rant last week, I have decided to stop moaning, lead by example and take action to help change the world for the better.

I have been reading a lot of blogs and watching youtube videos. I just wanted to prove myself that doing our bit was not that difficult. That there are lots of people out there thinking the same. Doing things for other. Trying to change the world.

Panna Cotta With Raspberries

These days I see astonished how half of people persist in trying to destroy the world and make us feel ashamed of being part of the human being, while the other half fight tooth and nail for human rights, equality and justice.

Every morning when I wake up I hope the world will be a little better. I hope that those who insist on having their eyes closed, obsessed with what they think is the only valid idea, finally decide to open them.
