Apologies, apologies I'm a day late with my update, but drum roll please ....... another 1lb lost. Definately slow and steady, at this rate with the amount I would like to lose it will take me until mid January - chuckle. I do feel a lot better though and a lot less bloated, which I think might be down to the fact that I've hardly eaten any bread and more veggies.
I've been so busy this past week and have done more painting but this time on the landing at the top of the stairs. I also managed a trip to the hairdressers, my roots were getting ridiculous so I've gone back to being brown. I don't think the purse strings can stretch to having my roots done every 8 weeks or so anymore. I prefer my hair blonde but can cope with brown for a while I think.
At 8pm last night I was sitting in the kitchen and this was what I saw, a birthday present to be finished which I really don't think I'm going to get done in time which I'm not very happy about.
Bunting for Baby G which has to be done by Sunday
This sad looking thing is supposed to be a pineapple upside down cake but it was a bit of a disaster, the cake didnt rise and although the top was cooked the middle didnt cook. If anyone has any different recipes for this cake or any tips just send them my way.
On Sunday the girl in our local fruit shop - who is fast becoming my best friend, gave me all these for free and asked me to bake her a cake! Do you think she gave me enough?
I did manage to get this finished though, a pyjama top for Milo. I did end up doing the last little bit by hand though as my machine gave up again!!! Will have to try and sort it out tonight.
Out of curiosity just when does everyone manage to do their crafting? If I'm lucky I snatch the odd minute during the day but this is mainly knitting and on a night from about 8pm until 10ish I try to do sewing. I can't really do sewing during the day as by the time I get everything out it would have to be put away again and it's impossible to look after Baby G and sew at the same time!
I'm now going to sort out some pics for my next post :-). Have a nice day x
