Give me strength!

Oh Dear.

I am sitting here wishing that I could eat something sweet but as I said yesterday I am worried I might be allergic to something so I'm cutting down on sugar also to see if it will help.

So now when I visited Bev's blog and saw this lovely recipe on Non bake Chocolate cookies... I'm thinking of surrendering...

Give me strength not to make them!!

PS: This blog is still under construction. DS.

I am beginning to think that I suffer from some kind of allergy.
I have never had any allergies so I'm not sure what it could be.

I have always had acne, not too much but always some spots here and there. The only time I was really free from it was during my pregnancy.
So that makes me think that it has to do with my hormones.
But now during the last week my skin has started to look really bad. I am getting acne kind of spots on my cheeks which I've never had before. they are not read, some of them are but most aren't.

So of course I have started to wonder what this is about.
I don't smoke, I don't drink, I eat quite healthy and I exercise regularly. (Well I could increase that actually but I don't think it has anything to do with this).

So then what is it? It must be something I'm eating.
Our body reflex the way we eat I think but now I'm beginning to wonder.
So I will try and eat more vegetables and no processed food, which I actually don't eat much of anyway, to see if it becomes better.
If someone has a miracle cure, please tell me!!
Or I might have to go and see a specialist.

And I thought I was a good girl... obviously not...

Seeing through the phone

My son is at home from nursery today. He has been watching some TV and also enjoyed himself with drawing on his cars with a blue marker. I told him that he had to stop or his Daddy would get mad at him when he sees what little Choriço* has done.

My husband just called and Choriço started talking about the cars that he had drawed on. He told me to go and get the cars. He insisted so much that I actually went and picked up the cars.
Then he holds one of the cars in front of the phone and says, can you see Daddy?

He tries to show the car through the phone. :)

I think it was really cute!

*Choriço is the nickname my son carries from the day he was born :) It's real meaning in Portuguese is a sausage made of pig blood.

Oh I forgot...

Please tell me if you are using IE and don't see my tag cloud on the right side.

I can't see it in IE, only in FireFox.

Time for coffee

I think it's time for a well deserved coffee break now. I've been sitting here for sometime playing with colours but I haven't really found a colour that I like. Well, actually I have found several colours I like but I'm not sure they go well together.

I'll just play around some more and what happens we will just have to wait and see.
bacause it is sooo exhausting doing this I think it's time for coffee!
It's 4pm so there are still some hours to go until dinner.

My husband doesn't liketo drink coffee socially. He only drinks his Cafezinho in the morning. A cafezinho is asmall coffee loaded with more sugar than coffee.

I only drink it if I really have to.

Not enough sleep

I went to bed at 2am last night. And I was woken up by a beautiful little boy saying: Mommy, It's wet.
A little accident had happen.
Well Mommy takes of the wet pants and puts on dry ones.
It's 5.30 in the morning.

No, beautiful boy doesn't want to sleep longer.
Mommy has no other choice but to get up.

But I'm not complaining, I actually feel OK and not the least sleepy today. See, it goes to show, you don't need 8hours of sleep everynight.
We'll see how long it'll last for.

Under Construction

Do I need to say that this blog is under construction?

Come back in a few days, then it will be better.


Welcome to Mama's Coffee Corner

This will be my place to talk about anything and nothing. Just like you do with friends over a cup of coffee!

Come and join me and have your favorite cup of coffee. Everything is served here, just the way you like it.
I personally like a big cup of black coffee in the morning followed by another 2.
In the afternoon I only want to ahve 2 cups. Smaller are OK.

If I have a starbuck nearby I will have a tall skinny cappuccino to go. I love walking with my coffee. I think clearly then and enjoy my life and surroundings.
