Project 365 week 8

I had the results of my heart scan, it came back with nothing at all to be concerned about. So may never have an explanation as to the cause of the black thumb but least I know nothing sinister is lurking inside me.


It is the simple things in life......we have been on tinned sweetcorn as our veg while we have had no freezer, so having bought veg on Friday we had something different for tea. Yes I know there is still sweetcorn in it but also contains other things, and I prefer frozen to tinned by choice.


Don't judge DD1 has been plagues with bouts of very nasty tonsillitis for the last few months. Anyway last week when all I could do was squeak and whisper she was mocking me ( as only family can) so tonight her Facebook status read

Whoever's got my voodoo doll, could you please take the pins out of it's throat? Totally fed up of tonsilitis now, on my 4th course of antibiotics since mid December

so being the loving mother I am I made a voodoo doll, and added pins in the ears and sinuses for good measure.


Hubby was out for the evening so I made the most of it and got to play with my Wii for the first time in too long.

See keep telling you I am only 29!!!


Been a long hard month financially for a few different reasons. So to eek out what is left I made some sultana and apricot cakes with a touch of cinnamon in, very yummy they were as well.


Blossom starting to come out on the trees. Did look for frog spawn while we were out but there did not appear to be any.


A walk along the beach path in Prestwick. Was high tide so little beach available. Really liked this quote, quite appropriate along the cycle path.

In case you cant read it it says

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are Arthur Conan Doyle. 


As of last night my miles total is up to 206.6. My aim for next month is for more active minutes in a day. I am also hoping to buy another fitness tracker watch that does more than count my steps. 

Another character finished on the blanket. Just the owl to do, then I need to find a nice verse to add before adding name, weight and d.o.b. Any pointers for a nice verse would be appreciated though I do have one idea on my head.


  1. That's great news about your heart scan!
    Yum! That sweetcorn dish looks very bright and tasty!
    hehehe! The voodoo doll did make me chuckle. What a loving mother you are. (I would so do the same too! hahaha)
    Everytime I say I am going to get rid of our Wii my girls will start loving it again. Good on you only being 29!
    Lovely photos x

  2. Good news about the heart scan. Your poor daughter with the endless tonsilitis, but I do love the voodoo doll. It sounds like you've already done a lot of miles this year.

  3. Great news about your heart. Sounds like the blanket is coming on well. Love the voodoo doll :D #365

  4. Great news that the heart scan showed no concerns, that must be a big relief. My fitness age would probably be higher than 29, at that age I was very nimble. Not anymore.
    I also spot more and more blossom every day, it feels like spring. Pooh bear is lovely, and eek @ the voodoo doll.

  5. I'm loving spying the first signs of Spring and have even tried my hand at drawing blossom #365

  6. That is good news the scan didn't show any issues. That must be a relief for you. The weather has been lovely recently and feeling more and more like spring. Aww pooh bear is cute xx

  7. Glad the heart scan came back well. Had a bit of a giggle at the voodoo doll.

  8. I'm glad the heart scan came back with no concerns but I know how frustrating it is not knowing the answers! #project365


Nice to see you stopping by. Thank you for your comment and I hope you stop by again.
