Project 365 week 38

OK all you picmonkey people now we cannot use it for free what else are you using to edit your photos?

Sunday

One half of our toaster packed in. Hubby likes his bread barely heated, not fit to call toast, I like mine lightly browned but cooked so having to share a toaster is annoying as we have to keep remembering to turn it up and down. So bought a new one.





Monday

Desperately trying to find a way to exercise that is not making my plantar fasciitis worse. Not an issue while exercising but getting shooting pains and cramps both when sitting and overnight which are waking me up and disturbing my sleep. So decided to give resistance bands and a mat a go. Still exercising but no impact so here is hoping. Working my way through various workouts to find one I really get on with allowing for limited space on the top landing as a lot of the exercising involve using an over the door attachment and the only place I can do it is my small poky top landing.  Mixing this with my hand weights. Seems to be working so far. Easy to walk upstairs and do some reps with the hand weights or some squats, leg stretches, arm curls. Trying to wander up the stairs every hour or so and do something.







Tuesday

Trying to be a bit more selective about what I am eating. Biggest issue I have is I cannot eat uncooked fruit and veg so cannot fill up with a apple or banana or a large plate of salad. So one of the ways I am working on is breakfast, so bought two different types of porridge to make different fridge porridge with for my breakfast.






Wednesday

Minky and Dinky were involved in a fashion show at school today so mum and dad had tickets to see them. I agreed to watch Bob and Spud and as it was dry we went to the park for an hour. Was a lovely time as well as got chance to have a proper conversation with Bob and only had one toddler to chase round after.  Did my telephone interview for the magazine article I have agreed to do.




Thursday

A photographer was out today from the magazine to get pictures of myself DD1 and the three youngest. Well first off poor Spud decided she would cry. The Dinky decided she would sulk, refuse to smile or do anything the photographer asked her to do. Minky was loving it, all sorts of poses with him. Dinky got sent indoors and some pictures were taken without her. Granddad filled her up with half a bag of fruit pastilles so she came back out and joined in more willingly. Quite happy to smile when in the house but not the garden!!! Photographer was here for about an hour and took hundreds of different pictures. Family group, me and daugher and me on my own plus we supplied them with some pictures so not sure what they will use.

We will be in Woman's Own on 3rd October. Go have a look for us.




Friday

Was busy cooking fruit to add to my cereal and so decided to make some fruity flapjacks as well. Grated a pear a peach and some strawberries and added it to the melted butter and golden syrup and boiled it for a few minutes before adding the oats and cooking it in the oven.

  1. Love that you now have two toasters. We're forever turning our dials up and down too. And fruit pastilles fixes everything :)

  2. Lovely picture of the three kids. Will try to remember to look out for the article. The fruit looks delicious. It must be so hard finding something you can eat and enjoy.

  3. I'm still paying for Picmonkey....It's the only thing I really pay for when I come to blogging and I use it at least once a day so it seems worth it. I read about people using Canva?
    My teen likes toast barely toasted too. It's might as well be just warm bread. lol
    Congrats about the magazine article. How exciting. x

  5. Will have to look out for the article. I use Picasa which is very simple,but I think it's been discontinued and I am only able to use it because I have it on the PC already.I've not used Canva, but lots seem to like that.I keep thinking about Lightroom and Photoshop, but I'm not sure I do anything fancy enough for that.

  6. I'm loving your new toaster, looks like a treasure chest. Sorry about your foot, but well done on exercising. I did see socks the other day to help this. Not sure if any goodthough. The cushion is so cute. Love the grated colours. Well done on your magazine news x

    1. never thought of the toaster looking like a treasure chest but now you mention it. not as good a toaster as the last one we had.

  7. Oh plantar fascitis is not nice - love your perseverance to find alternative exercise though. I only used picmonkey recently so that's a bit annoying - I tend to edit on my phone as much as I can now.

    1. yes may need to start editing on my phone, being old fashioned I upload them to facebook for only me to see and then download and edit them from there

  8. I'm using BeFunky now after one of the FB threads, might even have been you that mentioned it? I'm liking it. Love that toaster, I agree it looks like a treasure chest too #365

  9. Woman's Own sounds exciting, will keep an eye open for it. I rarely eat toast and try to avoid bread as a rule, but when I do I like it lightly done. I edit pictures over on Instagram
