My current guilty pleasure is a glass of soft drink and eggs on toast sitting on my made bed watching Gilmore Girls on the weekend while my children remain in their pyjamas. I make the bed first so that I can appear like I'm getting domestic at any given time haha!

What is yours?

Food wise....hundreds and thousands with anything!! On sandwiches, of course, peanut butter (on spoon, dip in 100s and 1000s), nutella with 100s and 1000s, raw biscuit dough (with 100s and 1000s)....I am obsessed with 100s and 1000s.....I am thinking for pancake day on Tuesday that I put 100s and 1000s in the batter before cooking.

It's true, they will just end up looking like vomitcakes.

I am sitting on the banks of some massive lake, iPad on one side of me, kindle on the other, a hot cup of tea and some a variety of snacks and I'm not moving. But I'm not really feeling guilty though, just an essential recharge.
As a whole I don't feel guilty about spoiling myself, I'm awesome I deserve it. wink.gif
