‘FR-ANNIE’ as we now call her...this tired old rusty frog has been given the #anniesloanchalkpaint treatment by my daughter to bring it back to life in its new form (Frannie...see what I did there?!😃👍🏻). Shoulder may say no but my daughter is taking up the baton/brush so to speak! Now all we need to do is find a corner for her to settle in to and start growing something around her ✅🌿🌳 #emperorredsilk #amsterdamgreen

Shoulder says No! 😢 Time for a short breather I’m afraid....old shoulder injury keeping me away from the paint brushes 😤 Even typing is irritating things right now. Sleep being disturbed yada yada yada! Hoping for some relief after a visit to the chiropractor next Friday...watch this space 👎🏻😳

Up Close to some amazing birds at The Kids Owl Experience @hawkconservancy They flew 4 species of owl, a vulture and also got to hold a Lanner Falcon. Digging around in regurgitated owl pellets was intriguing too! Highly recommend a visit to @hawkconservancy as there is a vast array of birds and some incredible displays that were awe inspiring. Fantastic value for money day out. Will be going again for sure! #kidsdayout #pinkbananalife

Bank holiday Breakfast Bundt Cake ✅. #glutenfree #breakfastcake #cakeforbreakfast My Mother in law doesn’t like the idea of the mix of salmon and chives in it but it’s a great way to get more fish into my daughter’s diet....so I’m sticking with my odd recipe! Plus it also has some cheese that she absolutely won’t touch in its usual form for some strange reason (unless it’s hidden in here!) Funny...seems to have gone down quite well this morning huh?! 👍🏻 #pinkbananalife . 80g Buckwheat Flour. 80g Brown Rice Flour. 60g Ground Almonds. 3 heaped tsps GF baking powder. Pinch of salt and pepper Huge handful of chopped Chives. 75-100g grated cheddar or, if you really don’t want the cheese you could add nutritional yeast for that savoury flavour which has also gone down well in the past! 80g melted Butter or dairy free spread. 240ml milk of choice (cow, unsweetened almond or rice milk) - mix into melted butter/marg. 2 eggs beaten into the butter and milk mix 2 small salmon fillets just baked for about 10-12 minutes - flake and mix in to the flour at the end along with the butter-egg-milk mix. Bake in bundt tin for about 20-25mins at around gas mark 4 or, you could bake in muffin tray (9-12) for slightly less time which I often do... You could also add some paprika or chilli to spice it up a bit?

Epic fail 👎🏼 or Interesting twist 👍🏼? Got a little overexcited with my quick splurge of #aubussonblue #anniesloanchalk paint on these tired looking terracotta hanging pots....hung them outside despite the incoming rain....contributing to what my daughter kindly considered them as having an “interesting water effect”.... What do you think? Should I return them to the dry, re-paint and develop some patience or roll with the punches? #pinkbananalife

Take the same #fearnecottoncookeatlove banana and blueberry muffin recipe and mix it up a bit more....Still only 30ml of maple syrup but add in two heaped tablespoons of raw cacao and an extra tablespoon of rice milk, shift the rice flour and buckwheat flour down to 40g each and add in an extra 20g of almond flour and treat time is sorted ✅ - chocolate banana blueberry muffins #glutenfreemuffins #pinkbananalife

#notgettingmuchdonetoday #glutenfreemuffins courtesy of #fearnecottoncookeatlove with adaptation to reduce sugar and make #glutenfree. Changed up the spelt flour to 50:50 rice flour:buckwheat flour and then cut the maple syrup to 30ml not 100ml. I think I’m going to fuel myself ready to crack on with painting some coffee tables....😎

It’s important to look at things from a #different perspective.....either way though, this is a long way up. Some wisdom in these trees that we walk past every day. The whole area has taken on a new perspective for me since I started walking; got my life moving in a direction that makes me happy. And what makes me happy makes my family happy.....oxygen mask is well and truly on ✅

I was going to sell this side console table #handpainted in #anniesloan #amsterdamgreen but I loved it too much so it’s become part of the household! Looking out for more like this; I may even add some gilding to this...let me know if you find anything you would like painted - I’m happy to work with your ideas! #pinkbananalife
