I have a confession to make ......
..... when I woke up it was 8:40am!! Yikes!! That would be down to watching The Hollow Crown last night - and then switching over to see the end of the Eurovision contest then. Mind you - The Hollow Crown was fantastic - and I managed to get this far on the bunny block. I should see this finished tonight, hopefully.
Why did it matter that I'd slept in? Well, not only did I miss my usual 8am Create and Craft TV programme, but I also had baking to do for this afternoon's fund raiser. Now, I am not one of life's natural bakers (and I could hear my mother in my ear saying "you're just like your father" as I cleared up my mess!) but I did manage to make some mini Toffee Apple Muffins, some normal size muffins and some cheese scones. Not only that I managed to just sample one of the muffins and a cheese scone - just to check you understand! Well - I wasn't having any lunch!
The spread looked good, and everyone seemed to have a good time but it wasn't that well attended. However we should have raised around £150 - £200 so I guess that it was worth doing - not to mention the social side of such events.
I had a few minutes to spare so I also took a look at one of my facebook pages - a site where I put pictures of my creations and sell through occasionally. To my shame I hadn't posed since Christmas so I will try to be more regular. If you fancy it, please pop over, take a look and like the page. When I get to 100 likes I will give away a small prize.
Food wise I have been good - I didn't have an afternoon tea and resisted the cakes - just having one small cheese sandwich. I have brought some cakes home but they are gluten free to take to sewing on Tuesday evening. I should report, to be fair, that the scales went up by a pound this morning - which is to be expected. I won't bore you by posting weight gain / losses every day but I thought that you ought to be aware it can go up and down even though you are eating healthily.
