Happy Sunny Sunday!! 

I hope everyone's having a lovely Sunday.

You'll be glad to know that this weekend the sun came out for us in the United Kingdom Yay!! The weather was beautiful .Thank You Jesus!! More of this weather please Lord...more :-) 

I hope the sunshine has come to stay!!

I haven't had sweet potatoes in a very long time and instead of the normal roast potatoes on a Sunday I bought some sweet potatoes instead.

Sweet potatoes  have some great benefits which include a high volume  of vitamins B6 and C.
