Happy day .

Hey Hey it is Monday .
How was your weekend? Fabulous I hope .
Was it a holiday weekend ? Like a bank holiday or some such .
Well  I hope that it was spent happily  with family and friends .
Here in Adelaide it was great Autumn weather , perfect for outings .
Had a busy week , with general life stuff and have not posted since last Monday .
Thank you for calling in and a huge warm welcome to new and regular visitors alike .

I wonder if any of my readers can relate to a problem I have in the kitchen in connection to my weight watching .
As I have alluded I'm  trying to lose weight with out commercial pills or potions but just with smaller portions and limiting nibbles .
I thought that it would be easy with it just being Doug and me .
Well , I have had fun with some meals . Like making a shepherds pie in a small 17cmx 23cm baking dish instead of family size 25cmx40cm.
or making 250ml/ cup  of custard instead of 2 Litres. You get the picture ?

One thing I don't have to worry about is paper craft .
My card to share today
Using Soft Suede card base, Lili of the Valley paper.
Sentiment , SU ,Happy Day.
Bird and flower embellishments from my stash .

Feel good about this mornings weigh in .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Love your beautiful card Shirley-Anne!!! Hang in there with the weight loss, everyone plateaus but just keep on keeping on. I am traveling home today from a 2 week vacation and can't tell you how much I gained. :( In addition to the extra 20 pounds I put on in the past two years. But come Wednesday I'll be joining you in taking the weight off so we can encourage each other. :) Have an awesome day! xx
