It's been one of those crazy days!

I thought that retiring would mean a change of pace - taking it easy etc!  No such luck!  Today started with the craft group - moved to the morning because of a clash of arrangements.  No matter what I tried, I just could not quilt the current project and resorted to free motion quilting after using the seam ripper around 5 times - grrr!

A quick pop home and lunch (more of that later) and it was off out again for a WI committee meeting.  As we walked in it was clear that the hostess had gone to some trouble with scones and jam plus biscuits etc.  Sadly Monday is a fast day so I resisted.  In fact this is the second day of a back to back fast - 2 days without a break.  I had "picked" too much on Friday and Saturday and the morning weigh ins were starting to go up - so I wanted to nip it in the bud.  A day full of meetings seemed as good as any.  I am going to the theatre tonight but have built in enough calories for a small tub of ice cream.  Hardly nutritious I know but it's the law isn't it - having an ice cream at the interval - and it isn't a magnum!

Craftwise - I just wanted to show you a picture of my scrappy heart from yesterday.

I also have made a start on my next Lynette Anderson block - I wonder if I can complete this before the next one arrives at the beginning of June!


  1. How weird...we are both blogging about ice creams AND Magnums!!! Well done on resisting the scones... I doubt I could have!

  2. Wow 2 days fasting,- you are taking it seriously, hope your not getting Anorexic tendencies?
    Scrappy heart looks good.
    Enjoy the theatre.
