Eden, it would seem, is also a pudding lover and she is a little bit of a scavenger and she would go from person to person trying to eat bits of whatever they had in their bowl! Here she is with her favourite Uncle sharing his ice-cream.
We had a fabulous curry and now I just feel fat not pregnant! It was a fab night, mainly with people I don’t know but had such a lovely time.
She has recently had a lovely new kitchen fitted, so her shed is now her jam and chutney making kitchen. It means she can come out here and keep all the strong smells out of her new kitchen. She wouldn’t want to sully such a shiny new kitchen after all!
In this picture she is multi-tasking having just taken all the jam jars out of the oven, and she is also trying to stir the strawberry jam. She is a bit of a legend really, and like one of my three Mums. I am very lucky to have so many mothers!
Another gorgeous sunny day and the decision was made to barbecue. Usually Sunday lunch consists of a roast dinner but there is nothing better than sitting out in the garden, eating barbecued meat and fresh salad and drinking wine.
I am holding out that this is the start of a long, hot summer. What are the chances?
We have had a busy but nice day today. We went to the gym, popped to my Uncle’s house to wish him a happy birthday and eat some hot cross buns and then I spent the rest of the afternoon sorting out all my clothes.
I decided to cook a really nice meal tonight so made this delicious chicken and mushroom pie which we ate along with Jersey Royal new potatoes and vegetables. When I counted up how many calories were in the puff pastry I couldn’t believe it… so I decided I just had to really enjoy it!
At the moment I am pretty strict on my meals at the moment so it was nice to not worry too much about it – although I was quite relieved I had gone to the gym this morning!
Tonight Mum and I walked from home to The Houmet Tavern for dinner. We started off in the twilight and it was pitch black when we got there. Thankfully we had a torch with us!
We had a nice dinner and wine and it was lovely to just be the three of us for a couple of hours! Here’s Mum and my sister. Looking their best I think!
I have spent nearly all day shopping for food and then cooking. I am trying to eat healthily and I am doing Slimming World.
I managed to cook 6 meals and put them in the freezer. So, not the most exciting day but at least we will have some nice food to eat over the next week or two.
