Oh my how time flies!

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted, I had so many good intentions of posting but life just kept getting in the way. Things have been busy for me, like most people and making time to do this blogging thing has been difficult to find. I have been keeping up with as many of the blogs I enoy reading but there are so many out there I have had to say STOP! Take care of your own thing and the time will free itself up eventally.
I think when you work within the academic time frame your year seems to pass even quicker than normal. A hard lesson to learn is that time is precious and we have to make the most of the time we have and stop wishing or waiting our lives away.
All the old sayings are true "Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today" and "Time and tide wait for no man" these have rung far to true for me over the past few weeks, especially when you hear of people being given weeks to live or passing away suddenly.
I have tried hard to keep cooking as many home made things for the family as possible and this week I have been trying to plan a menu to help with the weekly shopping, I know it will take time to set up, but after the initial effort it should free up not only time, but that nescessary evil - MONEY.

Here is a picture of some lovely cookies I made last weekend for a birthday present, you can find the recipe here

Hi there Angela, Im like you I write my blog in spurts, and lately I have been very remiss. The recipe for the cookies look great though Im trying so hard to stay away from such delights. Love your choice of music BTW. Suzanne Vega is one of my all time favourites.

Hi Angela! I hope you are doing well and no longer have that nagging cough from before! :) Don't worry about the blogs, enjoy your time with your family and friends as much as you can and when a window comes you can be more relaxed about it :)

I have always loved Suzanne Vega too. I have been really remiss in my blog reading lately. I just haven't had a lot of time to do it. So many blogs, so little time. I do try to catch up with each at least once a week though. I have missed you in the Meet and Greet. Hope all is ok. Those cookies look great by the way and I checked out the recipe and printed it. I hope that I can make them soon!
