Since March mornings in our house have started rather differently than most. We have no need for an alarm any more. The day starts at about 7:20am with the sound of the outside tap being turned on as the builders fill the kettle to make their morning cup of tea.
I stay in our temporary bedroom for a little longer until finally admitting defeat and creeping across the patio and in to the house for a shower, hoping I won't be spotted in my PJs by the builders.
Then after the shower it's time to feed the dogs, get the boy up, get the breakfast out, stop the dogs stealing food from the boy and usually sometime before we leave the house, there is a knock on the kitchen door and some sort of question...
"Can you move the car?"
"Did you find out when the shower tray is coming?"
"Can I ask you something about the radiators?"
"Did you decide what type of timber you want for the porch?"
With 5 builders, two dogs, a toddler, a husband (when he's not working away) and me, mornings are always busy! Our only deadline is 8:50am when we have to leave to take Theo to nursery, three mornings a week, but even that sometimes proves a challenge too far! So when Britmums offered us a chance to try belVita breakfast biscuits we thought they might be just the thing for those mornings when we are running late.
We tried a pack each of Yoghurt Crunch, Fruit & Fibre & Milk & Cereals. I loved the wholegrain taste of Fruit & Fibre whilst Theo was intrigued by the combination of chocolate biscuit and yoghurty filling in the Yoghurt Crunch. The biscuits also proved handy to keep in the cupboard not just for late-running mornings, but also for snacks to throw in the bag on days out.
Update >> I have just tried the Milk & Cereals flavour which fall into the category of "things I find so addictive I can't safely keep them in the house" - You have been warned!
