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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Made another cushion that was ordered a while ago.
