I was quite keen to be involved
in this latest campaign to end loneliness by the lovely people over at Sunrise. I think as you get older you can feel lonely at times, especially
if the people around you are busy attending to their jobs and children. I must confess I think I should visit my own
parents more, but when we have had a week of playdates, working and taxiing the
boys around we are beyond exhausted.
But this campaign made us find the time to cook something for them and
play a board game together.

We settled for the Bread and
Butter Pudding recipe, it is not too complicated but the end result was very
tasty. Decent grub can really cheer you
up and this Sunrise recipe proved a real hit with everyone, even the boys are
now converted to the merits of bread and butter pudding. My dad wolfed it down, my mum bless her
watched on drooling as she is being particularly good right now and abstaining
from sugary treats.
Afterwards we brought out a new
game to play, Don’t Say It was ideal as it got the grey matter going for us
all. You have to describe a word to
your team members without using certain words, some of the cards were quite
challenging. My mum was hilarious to
watch as she was very theatrical with her hands and my dad was making the boys
giggle by copying her.
It’s lovely having time together
as a family, it’s so precious and the boys love their grandparents and are
creating lasting memories spending time with them. So I think we will cook for them more often and continue to play
games like we did today. My mum did not
want it to end but after two games it was time for the boys to go to bed. Next time I might work on hubbie to make the
Bailey’s Cheesecake and as Sunrise pride themselves with making each recipe
nutritionally balanced I won’t feel too guilty eating it!!!
