Kindle love...

The Mr bought me a Kindle Touch that arrived the other day.  exciting!

I was pretty averse to this notion to begin with.  I LOVE proper books - the paper, the smell, the pretty book covers - I don't think I will ever stop buying real books.  However, I do see the benefits in e-readers (especially for holidays, travel and a nice alternative to lugging heavy books in your handbag!).  Pretty amazing how lightweight these things are.

Now, importantly, I need to find a pretty cover to protect my kindle.  The ones available on Amazon are kinda ugly and B.O.R.I.N.G

I have spied a couple on Etsy that I don't mind the the look of - which do you think?

chevron - i haven't decided if the clutch style is naff or not.  I think it might be naff... 

I think the last two are my faves so far!  search continues...

I like the last kindle case. But its not really fair for me to judge because I'm the one that made it. Good luck searching.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Home made granola - our very own crunchy monkey

When we were in Phuket last month, the Mr found some really tasty locally made granola by Crunchy Monkey at the supermarket.   We liked it so much we bought a few bags home with us.  The little Miss is a big fan and is always asking to eat 'crunchy monkey' (even when it isn't breakfast time!).

Unfortunately our stocks are running low and good quality granola (that is not just toasted oats) is so expensive!  So to keep me and the little girl busy on the weekend and to try and combat the jetlag I was suffering, I decided to try and make our own.  It was way easier than I expected and is super yum.  It was also a fun and easy way to get the little Miss involved in cooking.

I tried a simple recipe but I think I will try other variations next time.  I turned to trusty google and this one was the first result after searching 'home made granola' so I adapted it and gave it a go...
