10 popular posts of 2015

According to WordPress I published 201 posts in 2015. I’ve had so much fun blogging and have made some lovely blogging friends as well as getting some amazing opportunities through this blog too.

I thought I would share with you some of my most popular posts from the year.

Pork Escalope with Swede Mash
I started Slimming World in July last year and although I’ve fallen off that wagon since Christmas we still regularly eat SW friendly meals. The Pork Escalope and Swede mash dish is so easy to make – perfect for throwing together on a week night when you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen.

Leek, Pea and Ham Farfalle
Another Slimming World recipe – the boys love this dish too and for me – it’s a great way to get them to eat leeks as usually they only stick to things like brocoli and carrot!

Am I a Tiger Mum?

The curse of the comforter
The pure fear of losing your child’s most prized posession? Yeh that happened to us!

    These look really interesting and I like the sound of the SW recipes! I’m off to have a read – especially of the third child debate post (it’s something I can verfy much relate to at the moment) x

  4. This is a really interesting selection. I’ll have to dip into these – I want to see if you are a tiger mum and what happened with your TV experiment.

  5. What great posts! You had so many fab ones in 2015. Going for baby number three is a big decision & I went back & forth a bit before deciding to go for it. x

  6. Really great posts. I have read some of them already. I would have to go a check the other ones too. Did you decide about a third baby already? I can’t even imagine be pregnant again!! I’m finally feeling that there is some light at the end of the tunnel!! lol 🙂 x
