Firstly, THANK YOU for leaving comments on my last post... I feel so lucky to have such lovely blogger friends that care.
I did get some sleep, and when I woke up I made my 7 day meal planner.... I did! Here it is...
Today is Saturday and I am on firm as I have followed it so far! Ha ha!
I decided to take photos of each meal, as a log for myself really....so I can look back at a laterstage and think, damn that tasted good! Ha ah saying that, I decided this after I had ate breakfast! Ho hum!
You will also see I have moved the dinner and lunch, so I eat them the other way around. There is a sensible reason for this... It's so my stomach has something light in, in the evening. Remember I don't move about a lot so lighter the better! I can't take the credit for that idea! Thank you Han! Yes Han is home for the weekend, she says the course she is on at Stanmore hospital is really helping her, I am pleased as its about time she had some real help.
So no photo for breakfast...here is dinner
It's home made mince beef chilli, it has mushrooms, garlic, sweet corn, peppers, kidney beans, 4 other variety of beans, chopped tomatoes, chilli powder and mixed herbs. Had it with some white rice.
As you can see this is a small bowl, I actually had two bowls but not one after the other, there was a 4 hour gap! Jon tells me that in the first bowl he gave me he put 2 table spoons of chilli and 1 table spoon of rice. The second bowl some hours later he gave me 1.5 table spoons of chilli and 1 table spoon of rice. It was more than enough!
This is basically lettace, tomatoes and one steamed breast of chicken with a herb and paprika salad dressing. This looks a lot! I spread it around the bowl! I think next time I shall put it in my smaller pink bowl ( the one I used for chilli) as I did leave some.
My exercise swimming visits will start again next week as I use the weekends to relax and spend time with jon. Ha ha no fear of me giving up swimming I love it!
Day one has gone better than I thought it would.....one day at a time!!
Onto some crafts...
There is one thing I want to master but no matter how many times I try I just can't grasp it. I tried again and I am thrilled with the result..... Ha ah when you see the photo you will all probably go, oh no!! Terrible!! Ha ah
It started lik this....
Not actually making anything, it's just how they turned out! I will keep trying! Crotchet will not beat me! I kind of made a granny square!
On other crafts, I love to play with wool and appliqué too. Jon surprised me with a little gift I have been wanting forever... Yes the little craft iron! Let me tell you for using with appliqué it's amazing.
You can see I am 'creating'.... Ha ha
This is one of the 4 corners...
And yes! I am still stitching the HATS design, it's very close to being finished :) more on that when it is finished! Ha ha
I was thinking that I want to involve myself in some things again, seems like I have lost my way. I know a lot of bloggers that craft participate in exchanges, I think I would like to do one.... Eeeeek! My first ever one! Ha ha saying that I bet now is not a good time as people are doing other things and commitments? So I thought I would put some feelers out to see what people thought? And as for what to exchange? Yes we need a theme! I feel like something different is needed....any suggestions? Basically if you could participate in an exchange what would you want the theme to be? What have you always wanted to make and give to a friend? Curious??! Ha ah let me know what you think? I am thinking any craft too, no matter if it's stitching, sewing, quilting, woodwork, you get the idea! Anything goes! It would be really interesting to see what people would make in there specialist chosen hobby.
Ok, going now as I have to go jab myself...yes every evening or I may develop more blood clots.
Until next time ......SMILE!! Xxx
