Not Quite A Mars Bar

not quite a mars bar (1 of 1)

There’s no time for drinking tea,

No time for catching up with friends,

No time for long walks,

And no time for vacuuming floors.

There’s no time for cleaning bathrooms,

No time for playing trains,

No time for building towers,

And no time for small talk.

There’s no time for sleep,

No time for lying in,

No time for reading books,

And no time for going out.

But do you know what my precious little people?

I wouldn’t change a thing for all the time in the world.

    I was looking for somwthing healthy to eat to increase my blood sugar as I keep having low blood sugar this pregnancy. This is perfect, it’s a treat but not the terrible refined sugars I have had to ingest. I was lazy so I just made it a slice. It was a hot day so I didn’t even have to heat anything 🙂 I’m looking forward to having some when it is set. Thank you!!!!!
