Brand New #GoodMorning™ Peach & Apricot Breakfast Biscuits from @Bakers_Biscuits

Yesterday, I received this really cool looking mini-coolerbag in a blog drop from Bakers South Africa, and it was full of breakfast! 😀 I LOVE breakfast food – I will happily have breakfast for every meal – so this little hamper was perfect for me!

Breakfast is an important meal of the day, but it can be difficult to find a meal that is the right combination of taste and convenience within a balanced diet. BAKERS® found the magic blend with its Good Morning Breakfast Biscuits™ in 2014, and is now adding a scrumptious Peach & Apricot flavour to the range.

Then I discovered that the box of Good Morning Breakfast Biscuits was the new Peach & Apricot flavour!

BAKERS Good Morning Breakfast Biscuits™ are extremely versatile: you can simply pop a pack into your bag as you run out the door in the morning, and they have the potential to make your breakfast so much more than just your first meal of the day.

The Mixed Berries flavour has been my favourite Breakfast Biscuit flavour to date, but this new flavour is definitely giving it a run for its money. They are delicious! The aroma when you open the little 4-biscuit package is mouthwatering. And the little bit of chewiness provided by the bits of peach and apricot is the prefect compliment to the crisp biscuit.

I decided to share them with my Glugster, so I put some in his new Bakers lunchbox!

Please note => I wasn’t paid to talk about the Bakers Breakfast Biscuits, but I was sent the breakfast hamper as a blog drop with the expectation that I would talk about it on social media.

Being Younger…

I’m watching a TV series called “Younger“, and I am rather enjoying it – but it has got me thinking too…

In a nutshell, Liza is a recently divorced 40-year old mother, her teenage daughter is studying abroad, and Liza has to figure out a way to support herself and her daughter since her ex-husband’s gambling addiction has left them in a financial hole – losing all their savings and their house. She tries to get a job in publishing, but is dismissed due to her age. On a night out with her best friend, she is mistaken for a “millennial”, so her BFF comes up with the idea of giving Liza a makeover in order to pass her off as a 26-year old. Ultimately, she becomes an assistant at a publishing firm, she befriends a 20-something co-worker, gets a hot a 26-year-old tattoo artist boyfriend, and has to quickly learn the ins and outs of social media, age appropriate slang, and how to party all night…
Granted, Liza has a lovely figure, small boobs, and has obviously followed a strict facial cleansing regime like her mother told her to when she was 12. 😛

Unless I lose 35kg, dye my hair, and botox my hands, there’s no WAY I could pass for 26… But watching the show has had me wonder what I would do if it were possible – to go back to being 20-something, as a 40-something woman.

When I celebrated my 26th birthday, I was a working single mom to an almost 8-year-old boy.
I fell pregnant at 17, so by the time I was legally permitted to drink and party, I had to organise a baby sitter in order to do so (my folks were fabulous with that), I partied quite a lot with my girlfriends, but it certainly wasn’t every night – or even every week.
I didn’t go to varsity. I didn’t take spontaneous trips with no idea of my destination. I took my son with me when I went out as much as I could. I tried to avoid a hangover unless I knew he was staying somewhere overnight. Partying all night wasn’t an option. I never took men home with me, or let them meet my son unless we were actually “involved”.

I was always conscious of the fact that I had a little boy depending on me. He was my life.

It might be fun to be younger for a little while, to experience being young, free, and single…

Would you consider it?

Being a Mom Reaching Milestones

Not seeing my son on his birthday! 🙁

Today my gorgeous son turns 26.

At 2:43 this morning his 26th year on this earth ended.
And this year is the first year I won’t see him on his birthday!

I couldn’t wake him up with coffee and presents.
I haven’t baked him a birthday cake.

I miss him SO much!
And I am SO proud of him!

He works too far away for us or for him to pop in for cake and tea. I would have loved to surprise him!
