Busy me!

Hello again! I am back!!

We have a quiet house again as Han left for the hospital again today.  Ha ha well when I say left, it was not on schedule at all.  Not out fault! Her transport was booked to pick her up at 6 am, it did not arrive here until just around 10am! Han was so tired as she had been up since 5am! I think she may sleep tonight! I think I am a walking zombie right now, see I never actually went to sleep last night! No idea why just did not! I was still awake come 5am when Han got up! I did however go to sleep when Han left at 10am .....but I only slept until 12. Apparently not requiring much sleep today! Ha ha 

With my day being messed up my food plan went out the window! And today I thought it was a chilli day but was not! And ion told me to eat the humus as it does not have a very long fridge life.  Ha ha so I have now decided to use the planner as a guide! I mean some days I am at a loss what to eat so I can refer back the the planner.  I am fine with messing up, I mean I am only human! Ha ha

So here is what I actually had today... No breakfast! 

Dinner....
Was chilli with mini wraps.  Incidentally the chilli is off the other day, made a huge pan and jon froze it in handy small portions. Go jon!! 


I am useless at making the wraps, so jon tells me! 


It went in my mouth, that's all that matters, right!? Ha ha 

Then later for lunch...

A rather special sandwich! Only recently found bread I can eat! This is a rye based bread as is really yummy.  I spread the bread with humus the put lettace and tomato inside....mmmmmm


Not feeling that hungry today, so that's what I had today.  Just as well as I have been like a slug all day and hardly moved.

I have managed to finish my mums table mat for her Christmas table... I did not pick it back up until I had done some stitching! I did not manage all the 7 words I need to do, I think it was 3 or 4... Better than none! 

Jon and I are off out on our scooters tomorrow, popping around my parents house.  So I will stitch more when we get back.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments about which design to do.... I did choose one...

This one..


I stitched them all together...


Back...


Then come the hard part how to finish it! I added some fusing to the back then put some white wool mix on the back.

Lancelot wanted to help I think...



Finished front...


Finished back..


I am really pleased with how it turned out, my first Christmas mat!! Go me!! 

Ok, got to go, it's jab time! Until I next pop in, remember to keep smiling :)

  13. That mat is beautiful! Wow! I really have no words as I cannot imagine how you did all of that! Just wow! Thanks for the picture of your chili as well. It looks so delicious I ran into the kitchen, found all the ingredients, and I will be having chili for lunch this week. I love to make large portions of things and freeze it down for several meals.
