It was a few weeks before we met any of our neighbours when we moved to our last house.

I was writing about it in a blog post, hit publish and just a few hours later the doorbell rang and behind it stood a very friendly looking lady baring flowers.

‘Are you Claire?’ she said.

I confirmed and she said ‘I’m L your lousy neighbour who hasn’t introduced herself yet.’

Can you believe it?

The universe must have read my post.

She was absolutely lovely and handed me a piece of paper with the names of all her family members and their phone numbers and we parted with the hope of catching up for drinks very soon.

I was just a little bit chuffed.

Later in the day I mentioned to Mum that I hadn’t heard from the people I’d contacted two weeks ago about a bassinet mattress.

At 9am the next day I got a call from them.

Must remember to put more messages out to the universe.

It’s not entirely the same thing but I had been on the lookout for a new healthy snack recipe for a while and came across raw brownie balls.

I kept forgetting to buy dates though.

As luck would have it, what was in my most recent fruit and vege box – you guessed it – dates.

They have all the flavours and essential elements of a brownie, like the crunchy walnuts and rich cocoa without any of the guilt.

Actually cancel that, I don’t do food guilt anymore.

Ok so you would still feel rather ill and have downed quite a few calories if you ate all of them but one or two and you’re just getting a good dose of healthy fats and some fruit.

Even better than brownies though there’s no baking involved and just the food processor to throw in the dishwasher wash up.

I’ve put 25 minutes in the recipe but really, if you’re speedy at ball rolling you could whip up a batch in 15 minutes.

I think they’re best eaten straight from the fridge when they’re nice and firm but leaving them out makes them a little bit gooey like real brownies.

You could also pat the mixture into a square tin and cut it into squares if you really wanted to fool yourself.

A sprinkling of shredded coconut on top would make for the perfect healthy nibble with your after-meal coffee.

Enjoy!

What about you?
