Muesli bars

 

The New Year has well and truly begun and I am welcoming 2014 with open arms and hoping that this year brings back the inspiration needed to come back here and stay for a while.

 
During my break from here, I became comfortable in the instagram community because I love the daily pics, the creativity, the beautiful inspiring community and of course the conversations.  I love that you can post
a pic and get people talking. I love that I don’t have to post a pic but I can still pop in whenever I want to and have a conversation with someone.  I love that I don’t feel like I HAVE to, but that I WANT to.  I love the support.  I love that sometimes we all share the same problems.  I love that we can help each other with our queries.  I love that there will always be someone awake at some strange hour to click a “heart” on your photo.
 
But you know what, I miss it here, I have been missing it for a while.  Truth is, once you are gone for some time it’s so much harder to get back.
 
A friend recently told me that she returned to blogging because “…I want to say more!” and it’s true, sometimes you just need to say a bit more.
So Cath, this post, and recipe are especially for you.

My kids are back at school on Thursday so I made these especially for them.

How are you all coping with the children going back to school, are you relieved, a little sad?

Do you have newbies starting prep this year? I think you’ll definitely need a hug or two.

Please leave me a comment so I know you are here and you’d like me to hang around, I really have so much to tell you, so many recipes to share.

In the meantime, I’ll be hanging out on instagram.
