Fast day number 3
It was an early start today - no reason , just woke up early - so I indulged myself with more embroidery. I am getting there - should finish the bock tonight, I hope! Mind you , I am not sure watching Bake Off's Crème de la crème on catch up was a good way to start a fast day!
The key, I feel, to a successful fast day is keeping busy. Hence the first job was to drive into town for a quick shopping trip - Daisy needed more food and I've offered to do some baking for a church event on Sunday. On my arrival home I was greeted with a large pack - I had sent for some samples of cushions for the church pews - but didn't expect to actually be sent three cushions!
I am so far behind with the splendid sampler that I wanted to finish a block today. I had also embroidered a red rose for St George's day and a picture of Shakespeare to celebrate his 400 years - so made these up into blocks. The sampler, when finished, will go on the bed upstairs and I want it to cover it all - I need to measure but fully expect to have to create more blocks!
Next up was the mountain from the airing cupboard. Be kind to me, its not pleasant!
After a lunch of boiled egg, more embroidery and a debate with Sewingbuddy about the pros and cons of buying a new piece of equipment ( I didn't by the way!) it was off to walk the dogs. Tea - only 42 minutes away but who's counting - is a ready meal with veg. That means that I will have stayed below my 500 calories for the day and, as of this morning, the scales are looking good - let's hope they still are tomorrow when we do the official weigh in!
