I had planned to go out today but for a variety of reasons that didn't happen. Combined with a niggling toothache and overcast skies - plus workmen working outside my house looking for some kind of electrical issue - today rapidly turned into a moochy kind of day. I had stayed up last night to watch Question Time and yet was awoken by Katie's barking alarm call at 6:15am - so I was extra tired - yet the drilling and banging was not conducive to a quick nap. So - there was nothing for it - I needed a pick me up - it was time to nip out to the local farm shop. there is nothing that quite lifts my spirits like seeing the large strawberry and a PYO sign underneath. Whilst I do not pick my own, I certainly enjoy their strawberries and the sign signals a few weeks of beautiful strawberries for breakfast, dinner and tea - I can feel regular visits coming on!
I also took the opportunity to nip upstairs and admire my new roof. I am not an expert on such matters - but, quite frankly, as long as it keeps the water out then that's okay by me. The fact that it looks a neat and tidy job is encouraging.
So this afternoon ( I told you that I hadn't done much at all!) I watched tv whilst working on yesterday's table runner. There was hand sewing to be completed before we could get to the assembling stage so I thought that I would take advantage of my mood. I say "watched TV" - but the workmen outside packed up at lunchtime so my eyes may have closed! I couldn't in all honestly tell you what was on - just that there was noise coming from the television!
By now it was time to feed the dogs and make tea - and that's another day over. Hardly the most exciting day of all but sometimes life just throws you these curveballs and you just roll with them. I am out both days over the weekend so appreciate these "stay at home " days - albeit I would like to achieve a little bit more than a bit of hand sewing!!!!!
Food wise, this has been a good day, however. I had a sausage sandwich (Low fat of course and wholemeal roll), a mug shot for lunch along with strawberries and yoghurt for afters. Dinner will be the remains of the French style country chicken with veg and a jacket potato - along wit strawberries and yoghurt for afters. With a snack of Velvet crisps (4 syns / 86 calories) this morning, the food has been bang on plan - so I am feeling smug!! My personal challenge this week is to write everything that I eat and drink down onto a food diary so that I keep better track of my intake.
Hope that everyone has had a good day and a great week. Enjoy the weekend x
