Day 5 - Day out. POST 400!

Firstly, thank you thank you thank you for all of your birthday wishes xx I loved every single one! 

The Bullet has whizzed up for breakfast 
Peaches, banana, Apple and pear. Taste score out of ten = ten
Lunch - chicken and butternut squash soup. Taste score = 10/10
Tea - grilled haddock served on a bullet recipe pesto
Big bunch of flat leafed parsley
1/2 clove garlic
1 tblspn walnuts. I'll admit to probably using thrice that  
A tspn oil
1tspn freshly grated Parmesan 

Served with a huge pile of rocket on the side
Again 10/10 ! 

And I'm someone who doesn't even like fish! 

Supper is supposed to be a garden salad  smoothie 
I'm nicely full from tea and while I know it's nutritionally balanced etc I just can't face it! 
So I'm not having it!! 
Not sure what Day 6 will deliver- it's a surprise! 
I've not been in work today. I've been in Manchester at The Autism Show. This is a huge convention of experts, professionals, psychiatrists, speakers and stalks pitching products and services. 

I attended an exceptionally interesting talk delivered by an amazingly motivated, learned practitioner. I've loads of new and renewed strategies to put to use at work. We've spied some fabulously brilliant resources. I've brought a zillion catalogues, leaflets and freebies home! 

Then, whilst out, I heard from the uni one - now qualified to put BA(Hons) after her name! I'm so so proud! 

So that topped off a lovely 'Birthday Boxing Day' which is what I decided would be a good thing to have! 

Tomorrow I want to get up early and crack on with the housework so I can then unpack my new machines and have a practice on some old pillow cases that are destined to become dusters to my heart's desire! Expect photos of very dodgy stitching! Am off to bed soon! 

How much do you love weekends? 
Lots of love from 
Rachel *proud mama* Radiostar xx 


  1. Bloody hell lass you make me smile with your chirpy posts....just saying.

    1. Smiling is a good thing so the fact you are smiling makes me happy!

  2. More congratulations your way to the uni one. Wonderful news. You've now got me looking at doing a seven day cleanse but I have no willpower and quite an addiction to Smarties! X

    1. I really think you have to be in the right frame of mind! I've either got full blast alert, like the rare occasion of this week, or none like most of the time!

  3. Congratulations to your uni one, she has done well, what lovely timing for the results.

  4. Congratulations to uni one. Even though I'm now retired (hee, hee) I still like the weekends. My weekdays seem to have gotten themselves into a routine of gym, shopping, dancing, out and abouting and volunteering so at weekends we tend to chill a little and just potter about the house and garden.

    1. Thank you x I'm sure I will adapt to being retired very easily!


Many thanks for taking the time to read my words and respond with your own thoughts. I always try to reply so make sure you pop back to see!
