Positive Thinking January......

 

 
 
 
This week as been a very pleasant week, it started with a very relaxing and restorative weekend.....then just rolled into a calm, kind week!
 
Lots of.....sorting and stroking of yarn and fabric, and the inevitable crochet! My WIP is growing nicely. Time with Big Sis, always a positive thing!
 
I've got myself a blender so I'm hitting my 'vegan eating' goal firmly on the head. This week it's been Pistashio, Walnut and Parsley Pesto, tossed into wholemeal spaghetti, and the most delicious homemade hummus. I'm going to do a Fitness Feb, but more on that soon.
 
I've enjoyed being at home, it's been bitterly cold this week.....and yes, the heating has been on, a lot, unfortunately MS and freezing temperatures don't like each other!
 
The tulips have been replaced by a pot of tête-à-tête daffodils, reduced at my local supermarket....these will be popped in the garden after they've finished.
 
I'm hoping this weekend will be a good one too, time to be spent with my daughter, a cinema trip planned, a lovely lunch in our favourite Italian, and shopping. Time with my other Posh Sis, you can NEVER have too many sisters!
 
Hope your weekend is all you hope it will be and more!
 
 
Thanks for popping by,
 
 
Amanda :) xxx

  1. Lovely colorful photos. The food sounds delicious - you should give Ottolenghi's veggie paella a try for a really indulgent vegan dish; it's my current favourite. Your cat looks very comfy and homely sitting there. Wishing you a relaxing, and warm, weekend. x

  5. I'm glad you've had such a good week. I hope your weekend is just as wonderful! I love home made hummus, I nearly always make a pot at the weekend to dip into. Your pesto sounds interesting with the addition of pistachios! Take care x

  7. Glad you had a calming week Amanda! We turn our furnace on in the fall, and it never goes off until the end of March. But I do love icy cold winters. Enjoy your dates with your sisters :) Wendy x
