Tiptoe through the tulips....

Isnt this the cutest little house? I love the colour.  It is a house in the government gardens in Rotorua, New Zealand.  We went there on holiday in October and they had the most lovely tulips all over the place, it so brightened up the grey weather during the week we were there.

Wait watching

So after gaining a few extra kilos and being remotivated by two friends who are losing and losing and losing weight I have decided to go on weight watchers for the second time this year. Last time was a real success and I lost 5 kilos in about 2 months. Couldn't keep it off though and gained it all back plus an extra couple just to make me feel really bad about it.  It really is hard having self control. I wonder if alcoholics feel the same way about alcohol as I do about chocolate and biscuits . It really feels like an addiction sometimes.  I have to admit I eat them emotionally and then from there it's just a downward spiral of 'just one more' everytime I open the cupboard.  At times it helps me get through the day. 2 year olds are hard work you know. A nice cup of tea and a biscuit makes everything better. Well now its just the tea and if I'm a good girl one biscuit at the end of the day (because God knows if I had one earlier my brain would forget that one and demand another and another). Wish me luck.

Crafty stuff

It occurred to me today that I haven't shared any pics of my crafty creations on the blog yet, they are things I make for friends and family and are not for sale or anything, just for fun!

These are two I made for my mum out of jewellery that she had that she didnt wear and didn't like, add a few new beads and new design and voila new bracelets! nice bit of upcycling!

these are some embroidered felt brooches I made last year for xmas presents, Im getting better at them, I really enjoy making them, but not so sure people enjoy receiving them! oh well too bad!

thats all for now x
