The Benefits Of Eating Porridge.

                                                       This is not a sponsored  post.





 Since I was young I have eaten Porridge for breakfast, coming from an Italian household  it was a very odd thing to do, my Father would never touch it, but my Mother used to love it and used to make us hot bowl of it before we went to school, especially during the Winter months, we  would happily skip along  to school and endure the cold British Winter's.   As I got into my late teens it was no longer cool to eat it, in fact I don't think I ate breakfast for years, as I got older and my body was shouting feed me first thing in the morning I started to realise the value of nutrition, and started eating my childhood bowl of porridge again.
   First thing in the morning before the day has officially begun I go and grab a bowl and some skimmed milk my oats and blast them in the microwave with a little touch of sugar and I am set up for the day.   Gone are the days when I used to use a saucepan and stirred and stirred, I now blast mine in the microwave, I can tell if I don't have my porridge fix, I feel so hungry by midday. Go on do yourself a favour and try a bowl it's so quick and easy and you won't look back.

Here is a list of why porridge is so good for you.

High in fibre

Lowers  cholesterol

Lowers blood sugar

Reduces constipation

Protection against skin irritation

Lowers blood pressure

Boost bone mineral density

Helps prevent heart disease and some cancers.



Tips for your porridge oats.

Fruit is so good, I like banana's but any fruit is good.

Try putting a little syrup or honey in your bowl

You can also add  them in your smoothies 

Or if you have problem skin, add them to your bath water for smooth skin.

I absolutely love porridge, especially in the Winter and it's so good after a workout when you're feeling super hungry. I usually use the little instant packets at work that you add milk to and microwave, there's a cinnamon flavoured one that I love at the moment. It's great to know that there's so many benefits to eating porridge because I love it! Especially with lots of fruit added to keep me full for ages.

Help, I Got Lost In A Maze.

Its been so cold the last few days, all I wanted to do stay indoors and keep warm, but No I decided with my loved one to go out for the day, "Lets go to a Maze" I said "What the F......." was the reply "Why?" was the next reply.  I found a stately home I wanted to go and see I love seeing them, makes me feel like I am in Downton Abbey, another time, another world.
   So we packed up the car put on two jumpers my big coat hat scarf and gloves, and off we went. It was freezing cold, what the hell were thinking, I have been to one maze before but but it was little and yes, you could see over the top what is the point of that, but this one there is no way you could see over the top, I was actually nervous and a excited, then I thought what if we can't get out, how embarrassing, would that be. We went around the gardens first which were stunning even on a cold January day.  But the hour had finally come the dreaded maze, with fear and treperdation we st…

I have started a new fitness routine, I have always loved keeping fit since my late twenty's till today, it's funny that when I was at school I hated sports or games as we call it here in the UK, I was always the last or second to last in a race and was never picked for any team I did however excel at Volley Ball (no idea why) and I was good at dance, but of course my school abandoned the volley ball team. at age thirteen, but I did do dance lessons from the age of seven till sixteen, I had  dreams of being a dancer on Top of the Pops, (yeah right).
 From about the age of 27 I started to workout to keep fit DVD's and they worked they really did, and I actually enjoyed it, I became pretty fit and had a nice little figure too,  but alas time has gone on and the years have gone by and by the time I was 35 I started to realize I couldn't do the DVD's that I was doing a few years back and was struggling to do any more that 20 mins each time, and eventually  I started …

A TRUE STORY.

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …
