Three reasons to cry "Yay!"
Number 1: Two more Followers! How lovely is that! So welcome Mary-who-doesn't-seem-to-have-a-blog, and Mary from the Craft Hoarder. (though looking at your photos you do seem to be suspiciously similar! I suspect you're the same person who loves me twice over!) Please can I be invited to your cat site too?
Number 2: I have lost 1 kg this week to get me back to pre-Christmas weight. That's 2lb of lard gone - and, to be honest, for not too much effort at all.
Number 3: (and this really shouldn't be a Yay! but it is!) I was so busy working this morning (yes, really. No heckling from the back, thank you!) that I forgot I had to pop to the local shop for some haricot beans to make the spicy bean and vegetable stew that was planned for today's dinner. It was 1 o'clock before I remembered - oops! The shop shuts at one. Now, admittedly, I could have popped a bit further down to ShCarrefour, but by the time I'd got there and back we'd've been running out of making time. So a quick change of plan , and we're having UK sausages, potato gratin, roast parsnips and green beans instead. It's all looking very yummy and I'm really, really looking forward to it!
I will have to create soup this afternoon to have tomorrow, as I was going to soupify the left over bean and veg casserole, but never mind. It's a small price to pay for SOSSIDGES!
