Chai lattes & happy meals!

Hi! I hope you're all having a great Friday. We have been winding down ready for the weekend, I always seem to relax a bit more on Friday's and I love it! It's like an extra day to the weekend ;)

This morning we woke up and had sofa snuggles with our milk/coffee before making breakfast. It was lovely & gave us chance to wake up before diving straight into the day. We used to do this every morning when Sienna was younger. It's nice to bring it back :)

We popped into town to have a browse & I picked some lunch up from M&S. I have never got food for there before, I actually always forget they do salads and things for lunches. I got the Apple, pea, lime and mint drink, Super chicken, spinach and quinoa soup and the nutty super whole food salad.

Everything was really delicious and nutritious for an on-the-go lunch! I was impressed. The soup had good sized bits of chicken in and enough substance to fill you up. The salad has the same, lots more too it than a normal 'salad' and I loved the crunch addition of the almonds! The drink was refreshing.. although all I could think about was the macho peas you can get from Nando's as it does taste like that.. anything with peas and mint always reminds me of that! haha! Over all though it was a great satisfying but delicious lunch, I'll definitely be going back for more :)

I also tried a Soy Chai latte for he first time from Costa when we were out. It does taste a bit like Christmas so felt a little bit wrong but it tasted delicious! New favourite I think!

Even though I had my nutritious foods for lunch, I got Sienna a happy meal! I know.. bad mum points but sometimes you just have to live a bit! She loved having her 'surprise box', bless her! She got a little Shaun the sheep spoon she is acing for her cereal in the morning ;)

This afternoon we've been playing with all her toys and reading instead of her being on my phone. Ever since discovering YouTube on my phone, it's all she asks for. As well as the egg surprise videos she also loves the 'Heroes of the city' channel. They have a great range of videos from the actual episodes (there's one here) to crafting how-to's such as this one. The crafting ones actually give us some good ideas sometimes so it is worth being subscribed too! The longer episodes are also a life saver when trying to keep her quiet/occupied while in restaurants or doing the food shop.

I do try to distract her by playing hands on with her every now and then though, so she doesn't have too much TV/technology time. A few weeks a go, I actually took part in survey with MyVoucherCodes about parenting worries with technology. Although Sienna is only 2 at the moment, I do think about the way social media is going and worry about what it will be like when she is older.. She already seems addicted! At the moment I am in control but when she is older and has her own phone, I will lose that and it's a bit worrying. The results of that survey are over on Tech lounge here if you fancy a read!

Have a great Friday afternoon/evening!
