A Song For Ben

Thought i would quickly post this up as i think the more people that take the time to share this, the more chance that Ben Needham will be found one day.

Syria doesn't have anything we want

It's a blunt and straight to the point heading but it's the only reason i can think of as to why we are not helping the innocent people who have been dying over there for the last 2 weeks.

I rarely watch the news, it's either government funds related or celeb orientated non news or at least it seems that way but i did manage to catch the news yesterday and was horrified at how bad things were in Syria, and how little of it had been publicized in the newspapers.Well certainly not on the front pages anyway.

Today there will no doubt be a rush of reporting as one female reporter Marie Colvin for the Sunday Times has sadly died. I watched a news report yesterday and she was reporting over the phone, it must be one of the most frightening places in the world at the moment and there is no doubt that she was one very brave woman.  However as much as i find this all so tragic. Why is it that it takes her loss for people to be outraged, why not the loss of the little boy, the fathers or all the other deaths that have happened over these few weeks. She obviously wanted to highlight how bad it is there, make us take notice and get these people the help they so need.

I really pray that someone will help these people. Before it's too late.

R.I.P. Marie Colvin, French photojournalist Remi Ochlik and all the other innocent victims in Syria.

Yummy Devil's Bridge chocolate & Roll Pizzas

While passing through we stopped off at Devil's Bridge in Aberystwyth the other day and my daughter grabbed some gorgeous chocolate so i just had to mention it. I love edible yummy things, especially when different and especially when chocolate!

They had loads of different chocolate to pick from, some with gummy frogs in! Nuts, fruit, oh there was so much choice it was like being in chocolate heaven.

If you're ever passing through Aberystwyth do stop off and pick some up!
Delicious Chocolate

Anyway tonight i ummed and ahhed over what to do for dinner and the kids as usual wanted to help so we opted for the quick and easy Roll Pizza's and yes they are as simple as they sound but the kids love making them and adding their own toppings, it's so simple even a toddler could get involved in making them. Tonight the kids had a tomato base, basil, cheese x 2, ham, olives, jalapeno peppers, sliced tomatoes.

They must of been good because they didn't last long and they didn't even save me one to try :(
