Encouragement / 26.09.2018

I love achieving goals and dreams. It is an incredible feeling that you never forget. You just want more of it. Who doesn’t?   But I have found in myself that my attitude shifts like a boat on a restless sea sailing to achieve that goal or dream I have in mind. I am hopeful. I am despairing. I am determined.

I really related to the song ‘A Part of Your World’ because it appealed to my sense of wanting to belong, not to mention she had an amazing singing voice which I wish I had. And to top it off, Ariel got to swim around in the ocean all day long – I would pretend I was a mermaid in the bathtub (ah well)....

This week on the blog I wanted to share something light – hearted and fun. Cooking is one of my favourite hobbies and a tasty one at that! Since it’s the middle of winter and cold outside I thought I would share four cosy winter dishes that are among my favourites. Beef and vegetable soup This is my grandma’s recipe that she passed down to my Mum so I guess you could call it a family heirloom. 500gr lamb or beef ¾ cup barley Salt Cover with water   Put lid on and cook slowly for 2+...
