Evening Snack

Hello blog! 
Had very busy day today, was walking loads. Went to my Weight Watchers meeting, did very well there. I thought I totally failed, because I had very hard week, but I still lost 1 pound, which is brilliant. Only 11 pounds left to my goal, so happy happy days! I definitely be fit by May!
So this evening post is about evening snack. I came home kinda hungry, but wanted to eat something healthy and easy to cook and also nice to taste. So this how my lovely healthy evening snack was born.

Wild Lilies by Blackbird Designs or finally crafty post

hello blog!
I am finally here with crafty stitching post. 
I am working on this design, but it goes very slow. I know I have to stitch it as fast as I can, because its traveling pattern. So its basically like this - you get pattern, stitch it as fast as you can and them sent to someone else! Pretty much like that. Going to make another post about that when I finish stitch it.
So i broke the rules (ha not really), I just had no time to stitch it fast, because of moving to new house and stuff, but now I'm actually going to sit down and stitch it as soon as I can.
So here is process up to date (don't throw tomatoes at me, I know its not much):

I picked up threads myself, they not even branded, they are just cheap Chinese floss. Fabric is 32 count Belfast Linen Vintage Country Mocha. So I better back on stitching now.
See you very soon,

♥ Sunday Breakfast ♥

Good day to you all!
I love Sundays, I thinks they are the best days in all week, so nice, cozy and relaxing, thus I am still doing loads of housework on Sundays.
Today I woke up, went downstairs with my Little man, cook him nice French Toasties breakfast. And while he was eating I created a nice breakfast for my self...
Ta-dah... My lovely Sunday Breakfast...
It includes:
* Black coffee
* Mushrooms
* Tomatoes
* Medium Egg
* Mix of salad leaves
* Mexican Honey & Mustard Sauce

It was absolutely delicious, and healthy too! I used extra virgin olive oil to fry everything (really tiny amount of it).
Hope everyone having nice Sunday, we sure are! Going to play loads of games with my little one, go for walk and watch some cartoonies too!
Enjoy you Sunday!

How to make bowl or holder for yarn...

Hello hello!
Todays post will be about how to make holder for yarn without any hassle. Idea is not my own, found it on internet somewhere (but there it was with bowl and larger clip, and also big ball of wool).
So here it is, my very own yarn holder..Ta-Dah!

Supplies you will need:

* paper clip (you can get them anywhere, mine is from Pound shop)
* Coffee cup, plastic bowl or any other thing that you would
like to fit your yarn into

What to do:
Clip you paper clip on the edge of your chosen object, and
Voila you have your very own, cool yarn holder!

And when you are finished, you just put your project and crochet 
hook back to cup!
How convenient is that? :)

Hope this tutorial was helpful, would like to see your comments about it!

♥ What for Breakfast today? ♥

 Hello blog and my dear readers! 
I am in the healthy mood today again and as you see from name of the post it is going to be about breakfast.
What I usually eat for breakfast? Good question!
First of all I am trying to never skip breakfast! It is rule number one for me!
First I always have black coffee for breakfast (no sugar or its substitutes and no milk).
Then I have yogurt with granola or omelet with spinach, or porridge with honey or something else, depends what mood i get up with!)
So today's breakfast is....ta-dah.....
Healthy morning breakfast option by Alina
  • glass  of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
  • fresh cucumber
  • wholemeal crisp roll with fish pate and rocket leaves
  • boiled egg with sprinkles of pepper, sea salt and paprika
  • vitamins (I take A,C, E and selenium)
Also while eggs was boiling me and Cillian were playing with his amazing train track set (if you wondering where it is from - IKEA).

By the I doing really little of handmade stuff, I am really sorry for that, and slowly but surely I am working (finishing) few bits and bobs and mite show you something very soon!
Moreover I probably wont have internet for a while when we move to new house (it is going to happen very soon - next week I'd say), so I'll try to do my weight journey updates, posts and stuff somehow, but not promising anything!
Hope everyone doing very well,
sorry for such a long post!
