Oh my heart, I love that story. Anyway, proper full on woman flu has had me in it's tight grip.
I have not been so poorly for so long for ages. It should not be actually possible with the amount of fresh fruit and veg I've been shovelling down my throat since 1st August! I totally blame the germ ridden beings I get paid to spend my non crafting time with. Anyway, my immune system is slowly getting rid of these illness causing bugs ready for me to go back to work tomorrow.
The only time I went out was to drag myself to my weekly Fat Class. It is EXACTLY the same as starring in my very own sitcom every week with hilarious characters. But I wouldn't miss it for the world. I love it. I am very impressionable and I'm totally indoctrined, but I think going did make my cold worse. Anyway it was totally worth it... a long way to go yet.....
Just in case you fancy trying it
Recipe for end of the month 1/2 syn quiche.
(Approx 1/4 big tub Alpro Go on = 1/2syn )
(Philadelphia lightest 110g = HEXa )
1. Empty contents of veg drawer - peel off super grotty bits and chop. Search in freezer to find bits of frozen veg bags, pop into a sieve. Let thaw n drain, Add drained tin of tomatoes as no fresh - using juice in non quiche friendly manky veg soup. ( separate recipe )
2. Open and sniff test almost empty pots of Alpro Go on, Quark and Philadelphia extra light. Empty into a jug and mix
3. Whisk in two eggs.
5. Tip drained veg mix into dish, add creamy egg mix and top with the best of the mushrooms you had.
|If you look closely enough you can spot where I coughed.|
and I finally had a go on the embroidery bit of my machine.
It's my favourite ever half term coming up at Christmas and I can't wait! Somebody in my personal bloggy lovely circle made a Pom Pom rug - it's what I'm going to do with the Night Owls .
|I got this off my Mother in Law who got it off her neighbour. "It might need a bit of sorting out!" It's going to become the Pom Pom rug.|
.. I'm just going to go find the post now. But first, enjoy these photos. Albie who is now well on his way to 6lbs and Freddie, frolicking in the leaves!
Lots of love from
Rachel *so much snot* Radiostar xx
I hope your woman flu is soon over. Oh my that dear little baby Albie, so, so cute and wonderful he is doing so well. Regards Sue H.ReplyDelete
Thank you Sue H. Woman flu is exactly the same strength as man flu, except you still have to get up and do the cleaning and washing and cooking!Delete
Sorry you've been so poorly. That bag is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sooze xxxDelete
Wow Rachel, so much to be impressed with in this post - the fantastic weight loss, the lovely knitting, sewing and fantastic embroidery, Albie making brilliant progress, Freddie's fabulous ears and yes, even that mountain of wool that needs sorting out!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you've not been well on your holiday. A lot of companies would let you re-take you holiday if that happened but I can't see your Head giving you the OK to do that.
Have a lovely Sunday. xx
I wouldn't miss being at work for the world actually!! Have a lovely Sunday too!Delete
Such a treat to see a blog post from you this morning.ReplyDelete
We are all wallowing in snot here too. Andy being a man obviously has it so much worse than the rest of us....lol.
Absolutely loving your bag....do you mind me asking what line the fabric is from....it's just beautiful.
Some serious love going on here for Albie and Freddie they are both so cute.
Sorry your half term has been a snotfest....I think everyone I know is down with it.
Congratulations on your weight loss....that is awesome.
Before I was ill I managed a snuggle with Albie and I got to feed him!! Sooo squishy!! The weight loss is going ok right now thank you, just hope I've not jinxed myself - I'm about half way to where I might be happy! It's a watch n see. I'm certainly not dieting nor am I starving or missing out. Why didn't I try SW years ago???Delete
Well done on the fantastic weight loss. Glad to that you are feeling better. I found that when I was ill my husband would catch up on my lost sleep and take complete sofa rest whilst I did all the work so now I kick him out of bed and I stay put. Lovely knitting and bag. Albie is so cute. Freddy looks so happy in them leaves.ReplyDelete
Fantastic sewing and knitting, pom pom rug sounds fun. Wonderful shot of Freddie, hope you are feeling better soon, Christmas is such a fun time of year.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your weight loss!! I'm sorry to hear you've had a cruddy holiday. Just not fair. Look at that sweet little babe (the actual baby, not the dog, although he's sweet too with his ears). Did you knit Albie's outfit? -JennReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you've been ill, my husband and I are just recovering too. Seems to early to be flu season, but here it is. You've made some lovely things, really like the yellow bag.ReplyDelete
Lovely to see you back. For many years my holidays were spoiled by dreadful colds etc. I'm sure we hang on knowing that it's easier all round if we can promise ourselves a collapse soon. Your sewing is fab and I really must try the embroidery on my sewing machine. Keep well in the run up to the festive season when all weans are sent to school rehardless if what lurgies they may pass on because their mammies /daddies/grannies are all preparing for Christmas.

Well, your woman flu sounds pretty rubbish, get well soon.ReplyDelete
Hearty congratulations on the weightloss! Love all the gorgeous things in your photos.
That really is so, so unfair! The rest of the blog is lovely though. Fab photos and creations.ReplyDelete
