Smoothie Blogging

The weekend is drawing to a close again. How quickly the time flies. Yesterday was Saskia and Eartha's 6th birthday. We made them wait until the afternoon before we opened their presents because the morning was taken up with swimming lessons.

After the lessons the kids all wanted to go into town to spend part of their birthday money. They had some money in their birthday cards, including some Canadian Dollars from their Nana /Aunts in Ontario. This, I'm ashamed to say, reminded me that I had a similar pile of Canadian Dollars still in the drawer from last year. The good news is, that thanks to the global recession and the sinking value of the pound, those Dollars are now worth twice what they were last year. Smiles all round!

So we went into town. Mel has been adamant for ages that the only thing that would make him happy was a Smoothie Maker. Now, at last, he had the monetary means to achieve his goal, and so to the electrical gadget shop we went. Give him credit, we took a look at all the myriad Smoothie Makers on display, and he decided to buy the smallest. This means he gets more tries at using it.

Back home, we have had smoothies for lunch, dinner and tea. An entire two bunches of bananas along with a cluster of mangoes have vanished into the depths of the machine to be turned into pulp. We have had them mixed with orange juice, milk, yogurt and some sort of dodgy, fizzy orangeade. I dread to think what it is going to do to our insides!

I think I have been thoroughly smoothied.
