It's Thursday. 

I would normally be taking Keera over to Henderson to visit with her father.

But I'm NOT.  In fact, I never will again.

Emails have been sent by our Lawyer, and presumably received by HIS Lawyer... so he should know by now that I will not be the 'taxi' anymore.

See ya in court as the saying goes.

So what shall I do today???  The possibilities are endless.  Whatever I do, I shall enjoy it!
I'm in such a good mood!  I hated having to go over to Henderson to be truthful.  It felt like I was wasting a whole day having to just sit in someone's house and twiddle me thumbs ... or play solitaire with cards.   
YA YA YA... don't have to any more.

I might just put some money in me "Happy Jar"!   Cos I'm happy .

ABOVE:  this is the cute little Drawstring Bag Bex made yesterday. She is thrilled with it and it looking forward to making another one now.

I'm starting on a new sewing project today, and I'm really excited about it too.  More on that once all the fabric is washed, dried and ironed.


OMG! Everyone is going on and one about how AMAZING Bex's bag is.  Pffff... I have made 4 already... and they are just as A...MAZING!!!  Where were the acolades over my AMAZING BAGS????

Of Course:  I AM JOKING.  na nah nah na.

I'm going out now.... to buy a teeny, tiny, itty,  bitty piece of fabric... to make something AMAZING.  So there.


Bex and I went down to Spotlight... I wanted two more fabrics for my next project:

ABOVE:  I think I have all the colours I want now!  I shall be using MOST of these fabrics for my next quilt!   Or it might just end up a 'topper/throw' ... a smaller quilt that just sits on top of the bed?  Not sure yet.

I would like to start it this afternoon at some point... but right now... it's time to sit and watch 'Home and Away' from last night.  It's a midday ritual around here!  

We had lunch in the mall.   I had Butter Chicken for the first time in 51 days!!!  But... I only ate about 1/4 cup of rice with SOME of the butter chicken sauce... so I know I have not blown me OFL Plan!   Bex ate the rest for me.  

JEN:  I will certainly look that up, any Butter Chicken recipe that is low fat is good by me.

So far today, I've had three text's from 'X'... don't think he's a happy person.  Too bad.  You tell atrocious LIES in a sworn Affidavit and expect me to continue catering to YOUR sorry arse?  Go to hell and back. 

I'm watching 'Ghost' with Bex... she had never seen it!  Amazing.  I'm gunna put on 'Fried Green Tomatoes' after that (if we have time) ... she ain't seen that one either.

LYNDA:  thanks, you beat me to it.

So, we just finished watching Ghost, and Bex did not cry.  I almost did and I've watched that movie at LEAST 30 times!

Time to sort out dinner now.

End of Day: well dinner was takeaways.  Now I feel ill.  I suppose I WILL LEARN eventually!
Made a start on me new quilt.

  9. yummmmm butter chicken. Have you tried any of To Good To Be True cookbooks Chris....there is a low fat recipe in them that is to die for!!

  10. oooops thats Symply to Good to be True cookbooks.

  11. Here you go - found on the internet. The comments in brackets are not mine but the person who originally posted the recipe.

    Butter Chicken
    from Annette Syms' Symply Too Good to be True 4

    800g skinless chicken breast fillet
    cooking spray
    1 med sized onion, diced
    1 tsp crushed garlic
    1 tsp crushed ginger
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp turmeric
    1 tsp dried coriander (I take this to mean the ground seeds, not the leaves)
    2 tsp paprika
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1/8 tsp chilli powder
    2 tsp chicken stock powder (I don't use all this; at most I would use 1 tsp)
    4 tablespoons no added salt tomato paste
    1 tablespoon cornflour
    1 x 375 can evaporated skim milk

    Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Coat a large non-stick frypan or wok with cooking spray, saute chicken, onion, garlic and ginger until chicken pieces are nearly cooked. Add all the spices and stock powder. Combine with chicken for one minute. Add tomato paste and fold through chicken. Blend cornflour with milk then add to pan, stir continuously mixing well until boiled.

    Am SO GLAD you don't have to play TAXI anymore. If he wants to see his baby, get a car, and get his bum to the baby. Is he a dead beat dad? Curious.

    Love your new material and you know we ALWAYS think your sewing is AMAZING!!!! ...debbie

  16. Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my favorite movies, so good!
