I Now Love Banana Bread and I Have A Super Cute Granddaughter Plus Life's Too Short To Be Miserable............

My oldest daughter Kathy-Lee is becoming quite a good cook, today she brought me over a loaf of freshly made banana & coconut bread and it is so yummy………… know I never use to like banana bread I never tried it until a couple of months ago and thought wow I like this stuff and Kathy’s homemade bread is extra yummy………….

Her daughter Sydney-May is quite talented in my humble opinion she is only 2 and can recognise 20 different words and counts to 5 in three languages and up to 20 in English and she is just so cute and adorable you just want to squeeze her………………..

Last night was a horrible night for me I was up to the loo every half hour or so and felt like shit all night……………..pun intended…………………lol

I was awoken this morning by a phone call from the doctors surgery the doctor wants to see me about my blood tests, I had my iron levels checked again on Friday and yes I reckon they are still low and I know there is nothing else I can do about it………………………….but I will go and see what he has to say like a good little Jo-Anne………………..

Moving on to something about more interesting, ok maybe not more interesting but I want to fill out this post a bit so I am add this little tid bit…………………

Right now is the only moment guaranteed to you.
Smile through the hard times, even though it doesn’t always seem to get any better.  A smile is the first step to fixing things.  The trick is to enjoy life by noticing what’s right.  Don’t wish away your days waiting for better times ahead.  Right now is the only moment guaranteed to you.  Right now is life.  Don’t miss it.


  1. Sydney-May is really a cutie pie!
    I hope all goes well with the tests and your iron levels and such. I hate when I can't sleep. I'm used to getting up a couple of times, but more than that and I am dragging. I hope you sleep well tonight and have a great day tomorrow. :)
    The banana bread look delicious!

  2. That looks scrumptious, your daughter is doing well.

  3. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Oh, "banana & coconut bread" sure sounds really tasty♪♪♪
    Yey!!! Wonderful Sydney-May who may have bright multi-linguist ability. I wish she can say "ichi 1, ni 2, san 3, shi 4" in Japanese clearly♡♡♡

    Oh, I hope you can do something for your iron level, Take Care of yourself.

    Love you always, xoxo Miyako*

  4. SHE'S ADORABLE! have you tried eating liver darlin, i know lots of folks have iron issues but mine has always been outstanding, they LOVE me at the blood bank! lol have a bright blessed week!

  5. What beautiful babies ....sorry you felt so sickly...hope you are feeling better today

  7. The bread looks delish! And Sydney May is adorable. I hope you get to feeling better soon~

  8. I made banana bread and none of my family liked it so that was really disappointed :(.

    Sydney May is so cute :)

  9. Rita.......Thank you I also think Sydney-May is a cutie pie, I did sleep much better last night

    Whiteangel....Thank you

    Miyako......She does count to five in Japanese very clearly. The bread is nice

    Tim.....I have tried liver in the past but to be honest I don't cook much of anything

    Rhonda.......I am feel much better today had a good nights sleep which helps.......

    Annmarie......I have had problems with my iron levels all my life but maybe one day I will

    Shelly.....I am feeling better and I do love my cutie pie granddaughter, the bread is very yummy

    Buttercup......I think if I made banana bread it wouldn't be as nice as what Kathy makes, also hubby doesn't eat it but he only tried a tiny bit of it yesterday for the first time..........

  10. I love that she is cooking. My daughter loves to cook - when the mood strikes her just right LOL

    My iron levels drop every so often (stupid being a woman) and the doc prescribed Feosol but it's really an over the counter med. The next time they tested me my level was fine...good luck, Jo-Anne!!

  11. that bread look yummy may i have a piece

  12. Elsie....I have had problems with low iron levels most of my life so nothing new......Kathy is really getting into this cooking thing......

    Becca.....Yes I will share the bread around it is very yummy
