Hitting the Books

 Picture of the potions lessons in the Harry Potter Films

All of my exams as coming up now, so I am hitting the books.

 I'm left handed can you tell?

All of this is taking over at the moment and the moving out of our house.

I wont be as active reading blogs and commenting, which I love.  :(

It has to be done else I will be like the picture below on exam day...

See you soon!

“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”  Dalai Lama

Wow. After yesterdays post, I found the above quote.

Have a great weekend everyone!

What are you having for dinner?

Cherries from our trees last year.

I was going to do a completely different post today, but then I saw {this}.  There arent many things I praise the EU for but not allowing certain chemicals into the food chain is one.  Please read it.

We always eat vegetarian when in other countries apart from France and Germany, where the Mr can ask questions and the origin of the food is clearly marked in the supermarket and restaurants.  Even down to the House sign in France on the menus, meaning it has been cooked from scratch in the restaurant.  Being told it is from the farm on the outskirts of the village  where it is 'Biologique', gives me some relief.

Growth hormones in livestock has been rumoured to be linked to breast cancer in men and women and early puberty in children.

I wonder if Kim Kardashian ate lots of meat with hormones in as a child and they ended up in her bottom area?

I dont eat from McDonalds, as I have never liked their chips or the buns.  The last time I went in one was with my friend and we had her toddler with us.  They are vegetarian, we realised there was no veggie option on the menu for children?  We were told the vegetarian option was Fish Fingers?  um no.

The Mr prefers vegetarian foods now I have found more Souh East Asian recipes.  We eat meat at the weekend only as organic meat is so expensive.  Maybe it is time for us to give up meat...?  This will mean lots of investigation as I dont know where to get all of the protein and vitamins and minerals.  My sister did tell me to help with aneamia to get a cast iron pan and cook in that as it gives you some iron into the food...

Do you have any tips or recipes that we could try?  Are you vegetarian?  How long have you been vegetarian...  Maybe you could do a blog post on it and what made you change diet.

Wordy Wednesday #1

Loved this, obviously it isnt Autumn in this hemisphere, but one to sock away in the memory banks.  Now where to find an old leaf blower and a cunning plan to dupe my new neighbours into thinking I am a fabulous new neighbour by offering to clean up their leaves when the drop.

Mwah ha ha!

Have a great day.

Listening to {this} today.

Am convinced {this} will be the stove in our next house...
