Out of the mouth of babes...

 So I was getting changed, and my 6 year old brother was in the room. I selected a black slouchy fitting top, so it was quite loose, and put it on. I then examined at myself in the mirror, turning slightly left and right, seeing how it fit.

I looked behind me at him, laying on the bed, munching on an apple, and said, "Zaccy, does this make me look fat?!"
He replies with, "Well, a little bit"

Well, at least he's honest!

Fitness Blender!!

So just as my exercising regime was going out of the window, because 1, I hate running in public, after one incident when a random big dog thought I was playing chase. (It was horrifying, the dog was massive. And running at me. And barking really loudly.) and 2, I couldn't really be bothered with hour long exercise videos, because every time I put them on I have to sit and listen to the disclaimer rubbish at the beginning that the DVD player will not let you pass, every single time. Don't you just hate that?!
It would be ok if I had lots of money to get lots of different DVD's, but I don't. So I can't.

But that's when Fitness Blender came in. is a site run by a hubby and wife, (who are the cutest), and they regularly put out easy to follow exercise videos. Their ethos is that they want "to create free full-length workout videos that everyone can benefit from, regardless of their income or access to a gym." (quote taken from their site) I think it's brilliant.

Something I really love about them is that there is a massive variety of videos, from all kinds of exercising, to all kinds of length videos. I prefer to do say 3 10 minutes videos throughout the day, than one half an hour one in one hit, and this is perfect for me to do that! They also have hour long videos for if you do like that. Genius. Brilliant. Fantastic.

If you are thinking about switching up your regime, totally give this a try! I have just finished their latest video, 15 minute at home bodyweight Cardio interval workout. It was only 15 minutes, but it kept me going!

I'm now off to eat some cereal and go to bed. Check out Fitness Blender!

Just a lil disclaimer, I am in no way affiliated with Fitness Blender, they don't even know of my existence. I am just a ridiculously unfit girl who thought their company was GENIUS!

Kids and weddings


So as part of my Youth Work, I go into the local Primary School to hang out with the kiddies, and just chat to them. If you're around children a lot, then you'll know their minds are incredible. They have so many things going on in there. I could literally write a book with the brilliant lines they come out with...

So I was standing today with five year old Sarah*, and she was wearing very pretty, sparkly rings. I complemented her on them, and she returned with a grin, and said with glee, 
"I'm wearing one on my wedding finger." 
To which I replied with, "Oh, so are you married then?!" 
She says, "No, silly" (insert lots of giggles)

She then looks at my hand, and exclaims, "You're wearing one on your wedding finger too!"
I replied, "No, it's the one next to that finger, I'm not married!"

She suddenly looks at me with a frown, "Why are you not married?!"
"I don't know"
"No one wants to marry you, ey?!"
"Ermmmmm... I guess not... no"

She then skips off as happy as Larry. Oblivious.

Then, a few minutes later, I was picking leaves out of a girl named Alice's* hair (all in a days work) and a 6 year old boy, Justin*, bounded up to her with lips puckered, she playfully screamed and said, "Go away!"
To which he exclaimed, "BUT I WANT TO MARRY YOU!"
Then he proceeded to chase her round the playground.

Hope these stories made you smile, like they did for me!
What's the best conversation you've had with a child?

Ok, so I just saw this video, burst into laughter, and now I've watched it literally 20 times. I just think it's hilarious.

It's the small things in life that make it worth it.
