My week: I need a doctor/house call

Enough is enough. I can’t handle it any more.

It’s been two weeks and four days since I got sick with some flu-like thing and I’m still not feeling right.

I. Am. So. Over. It.

I wept in the shower yesterday in sheer frustration.

So my goal for next week is to get some medical advice.

But it wasn’t all woe-is-me last week. Some lovely stuff happened too.

We celebrated my mum’s birthday on Friday night with this recipe …


>> Easy Crockpot Carnitas from Pinch of Yum. And it was more than a pinch of yum it was AMAZING.

I was also cranky about stuffing up my cheesy chorizo dip the other week so I had another go and it went much better this time …


Recipe: saute 1 minced onion and 100g of chopped chorizo in olive oil, add 1/3 cup of salsa, 1/2 tub sour cream, 200g packet of Grated Philly & Tasty Cheese. Stir until melted and combined and serve hot with corn chips.

And the gorgeous Abigail shared my blog in a mums’ group that asked for recommendations on blogs to follow, saying: “ by another NSM Alana House is hilarious, touching, and a great mix of life, food/great recipes, celeb goss, party planning and general mayhem – it cheers me up immensely most days!”

Isn’t that lovely!

I really need to write a funny blog post soon. Maybe after some iron tablets.

Meanwhile at housegoeshome …
