Friday’s thought…What have you planned for the weekend? I’m doing a baking day on Saturday. I’ll be making Lasagne book 1, Creamy Tuna Pasta Bake Book 4, Beef Tortilla Stack Book 3, Ham and Corn Slice Book 7 and Chicken In a Hurry Book 1. It might seem like an effort at the time but it’s so great when you don’t have to cook and can just defrost a meal on those busy days. Cooking is love made visible. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Thursday’s thought… If someone you care about has gone off track the best thing to do is not to get caught up in their ‘drama’. It's their story, their journey and letting them make mistakes is often the lesson they need to learn. It can be hard but sometimes you have to step back and send them love and kindness.

Wednesday’s thought… Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that there’s always something they don’t like about themselves. Do you wish you were taller or shorter, had smaller hips or bigger eyes? We all live with insecurity, self doubt and, at times, lack confidence. We’re often the most critical of ourselves. Stop being so hard on yourself and learn to appreciate, accept and love all that you are just as you are. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Tuesday’s thought… The best way to deal with a conflict is to look at what you want the outcome to be. I remember doing this with my daughters when they were teenagers. I may have wanted to yell and scream at them, but I would always go back to the question “what do I want the outcome to be”. It really helps you to separate your emotions and decide the best action to take. Try it😊 Annette ... See MoreSee Less

Monday’s thought… A wise person once told me these words.
1. The past can’t be changed but you can change your future
2. What someone thinks of you is none of your business
3. We are all different so don’t try to be anyone but you
