Friday Favourites: The One About The Doorbell
This week was actually really rough. Not just for me, but for a whole heap of people. My online (and IRL) friend Sera Lilly, ended up in hospital after giving birth, with a perforated bowel. I went and visited her, and it was hard to see her like that – my heart actually breaks for her, and her whole family. I think about her every single day. And every single day I feel utterly helpless.
Whilst it has been a hard week, there have been things that have brightened my day … check them out here!
Don’t forget this is a LINK UP! What that means is you can share your favourite blog from the week (if you run one), or perhaps something you have read. Just scroll to the bottom.
What has been your favourite (or least favourite) thing about this week? Check out my five things:
FAVOURITE: Snapchat (happymumnz)
I feel like I’m living my life through Snapchat at the moment. Constantly refreshing it to see how Sera is doing, and receiving an utterly amazing amount of messages in support of her. Snapchat – you are amazing. I feel so much less alone knowing I have people to chat to online like yourselves. So many people have helped me feel better about feeling helpless – so thank you.
FAVOURITE: Ring Video Doorbell
We were gifted a HD video doorbell from Ring to review, and one to giveaway. I absolutely love the security of knowing I can see who is at the door ANYTIME I want. When I’m at home, when I’m out … when I’m on the loo. ANYTIME. Check out my review HERE, and if you would like to win one, click HERE.
FAVOURITE: Sera Lilly
Sera (from Fit with 5) has been in hospital for two weeks now. She started out there having her beautiful baby, and then has sadly ended up staying because of a perforated bowel. I feel very lucky to have been able to see her this week and even though it was hard to see her in hospital like that, it was so lovely to see her. I’ve been trying to keep in touch as much as possible with her but it is hard because she is still very very sick. If you’re reading this Sera, I’m always thinking of you – and not in a creepy way LOLOL.
FAVOURITE: My Food Bag (Gluten Free even!)
This week is Coeliac Awareness week in New Zealand, and the team over at My Food Bag were lovely enough to send me a Gluten Free bag for the week. The way My Food Bag works is they send you five recipes (one for each night of the week) and all the ingredients you need to make those recipes. The meals have been AMAZING. It really is nice to know you can make food delicious even if it’s gluten free!
PS I have Coeliac Disease! YAY! (not)
Snacks are life. Here are some snacks that are great for party food, but also to just make you feel better about yourself and life:
