Today I'm off to post all the party invitations... and I have no idea what that is likely to cost!
I've not posted a letter in years! I've got about 50 within New Zealand, and about 14 overseas.
Something tells me it won't be that cheap!
Never mind, it's not every day your Mum turns 80!
I spent a bit of time moving a few things around in my sewing room yesterday afternoon to accommodate a lazyboy chair...
And look! My UFO wall is looking half empty!
ABOVE: I finally found somewhere to hang my sewing machine's stitch samples too.
I can now see, at a glance, what each stitch will look like when stitched out on the default setting. Very handy.
ABOVE: I love the set up now. It was Griffin's idea to put 'CHRIS' PARKING ONLY' on the back of my chair. Funny boy.
Right, I'm off to start the day.
1.36 pm: And I've had a good morning. Got all the invites posted, then I had a wander around the local shopping centre. I was super tempted to buy a couple of pretty things, but resisted the urge.
Keeping the house less cluttered nowadays. It's hard not succumbing to retail therapy I tell ya!
But, I'm on a mission to be more frugal this year.
In saying that, I'm picking up the new Blue Fantail post for the garden tomorrow!
But, that should be 'it' for a while at least.
Once I got home I had my lunch, another healthy salad... I'm doing really well with my lunches!
Dinner... is harder. I don't want to be cooking myself a separate meal from the rest of the family, but in reality the family dinners are not that low in calories!
I'm feeding growing kids after all.
So, tonight we are having mince and bacon pies! With mashed potato and veges. My only option is to watch the portion size, and maybe not have the potato. I love pie, so will be having some.
I will cut back on EVERYTHING else today. No snacks. No carbs at lunch... well I already did that 😂.
COLLEEN: I have been using a small plate for lunch, but not dinner. I think I will hunt out my Britto plate and use that again, as you say, it does work.
I just dropped an invitation off to one of Mum's old friends who lives here in Cambridge. I've been meaning to pop in and say 'Hi' to her for months, but well... just never got around to it.
I'm very careful not to impose on people I don't personally know, even if they are friends of my Mum and Dad.
Well, dinner was good, and so it Coronation Street. *smiles*
I am going to bed soon, I need an early night.
