Me Time With Netflix

Me time’ is not something most Mummies hear often, but an occasion every Mum enjoys. Indulgence, relaxation, and taking a break from parenting – this month is all about you!
When you’re able to carve out that precious time, let Netflix make it even that much more delightful. Whether it’s a comedy to make you smile or a drama to set you on the edge of the sofa, me time is simply a moment where you get to choose your favourite Netflix picks.

Here are some amazing Netflix picks - Which one will you be watching




Or why not try the sweetest treat: A Netflix Stream Team favourite – Orange is the New Black season two.

Its all about Me Time so why not sit back and relax and whilst you watch your favourite Netflix pick, why not treat yourself to this tasty Orange chill drink.

1 cup water
1 cup sugar                                                             
3 fresh mint leaves                                                                                                                                                                                 leaves
1 x 12 oz (355ml) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
½ x 12 oz (355 ml) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 oz (29 ml) rum or sparkling water or soda

In a small pot, place the water, sugar and mint leaves over heat.
Give everything a stir and allow it to simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pluck the mint leaves out and discard.
You’ve just made a simple syrup, the beginning of many great cocktails.
In a freezer proof con­tainer (can be a cake tin or a Tup­per­ware con­tainer) mix together
the two juice con­cen­trates and the sim­ple syrup.
Either place a lid on top or cover with plas­tic wrap. Put it in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
Take out your orange mix­ture, which will be start­ing to set. Use a fork to rake the sur­face
and cre­ate some snow-y slush. Spoon 1/3 of a cup of your orange slush into a cock­tail glass.
Top with your shot of rum and then top up with sparkling water or soda.
 Kick back, sip and relax – we know you’ve earned it.
