So far this week...

Things are starting to brighten up around here. The house has been filled with flowers for my mum for mothers day and just because...

Today I happily ate two hot cross buns, toasted with butter, for my lunch with a hot cup of tea. It wouldn't seem right to eat them at any other time of year, so I'm making the most of them now.

I'm going through a phase of loving Greek Salad.

We went to a Greek restaurant a while ago for my cousins birthday. What we ate was so delicious but simple AND  healthy. Seasoned Chicken Shashlik Kebabs, a big bowl of Greek salad and some chips (not so healthy but still good!). It's rare that I will go out to eat and have something healthy..are you the same?? 

We had another Greek salad with dinner a few days back. It's so good.

It's a mix of Rocket, sliced cherry tomatoes, raw red onion, cucumber, olives, feta cheese and an olive oil dressing.

If you have never tried it, you really should.


My cat came home today looking like this....

A mess.

Who knows where he had been but it must of been adventurous....


A gave Crochet a go for the first time this week. 

This is my failed creation (freebie from Mollie Makes Magazine)....

This isn't what it should look like, but it does look a little flowerish. I think I missed some stitches so couldn't even finish the pattern completely....that's my excuse anyway : )

I'm going to give it another go or maybe do something a little simpler like a Granny Square.


After reading a lot about this in blog land, I decided to give the 30 day shred a go. 
Day 1 - 3, I ached so badly.

I'm on day 6 (I naughtily skipped the weekend) and I can see a difference in my body already without dieting at all.

Before hand I really cannot be bothered, but afterwards you get a real feel good 'high' from it.
Have you tried this before?

  1. Oh tell me all about the 30 Day Shred, I saw Cherry Menlove talking about it on her blog. Will it remove a jelly belly and pair of thunder thighs? I HATE exercise though.....tell me all!
    Think your crochet looks pretty good. I am rubbish. I am very new to it too and struggling. Trying to crochet a giant granny square gbut the kids have hidden my hook and I can't buy a new one as not sure what size it was. Gah! If I did some homework, maybe it would crop up!!
    Lovely flowers, your mum must have felt very loved.

  3. Hi Gemma, your flowers are beautiful! So cheery! Looks like you had a lovely mother's day. We don't celebrate it here until May.
    I love Greek salad too, as feta cheese is one of my favorite things. Yum!
    Good luck with your 30 day shred. I've heard great things about it. You are already feeling it, which is a good thing. It's working! You are motivating me : )

    Have a great week!
