Make it count...

Someone we love is no longer with us and it's been hard to see the world just carry on as normal... 

Last week went so fast, one minute I'm tweeting the bake off and the next we're in a heap not knowing where to go, what to say it's all just a blur... and the thoughts of normal routine today seems kinda wrong... 

Today, take the time to call someone... check they're doing OK... text them... and don't leave any topic off the table... if you wanna talk about your verrucas, then tell em you're annoyed about your verrucas, they might tell you 'thanks but TMI' but if it means other topics won't seem so daunting, so what?! They'll know you're thinking of them... they'll know they're loved... and they'll know that you're there to talk about anything... 

This week, be kind... you never know what someone is going through... that woman holding you up in the bank might be closing the account of a loved one.. the man who can't seem to decide what he wants at the deli counter, might be struggling to just keep it together... That person on the bus who seems to be lost in thought might be listening to a great tune or just switched off to the world because they're not sure how they'll make it through today... 

I know there are plenty of people out there who we just think are annoying and slow and we're all so busy that we forget not everyone is coping... They may have buried their son, mother, cat and just be feeling like the world needs to stop and just give them a bit of a break... a kind word or a smile might give them a little faith in humanity... and make today count xxx

Easy to throw straight in the wok (the clue's in the name right!), these pouches of noodles are very handy to have in the cupboard when you want to rustle up a quick stir fry...

Not all spices are created equally, some brands of ready made spice packs are very high in sugar hence high in SmartPoints! These fajita seasoning sachets from Tesco are pretty good value in SP when you're whipping up fajitas in a hurry... Not everyone has the time to make seasoning from scratch, especially with the children heading back to school, fajitas are quick and handy until the routines are back in full swing! Plus everyone love assembling them! Having one of these in the cupboard can make a dinner happen really fast... lots of onions, peppers, courgette, mushrooms, add any zero SmartPoint veggie... lash in your chicken and season away... SmartPoints below is for the full pack which serves 4... x
