Hi all

Glad you had a good week in Derbyshire Teel (I used to live there, but then again I've lived everywhere!!)

Well done Carol - it's times like this you realise that you have actually changed your eating habits isn't it?

We've had a lovely lazy weekend (and about time too!) going to the gym tonight to burn off all the lovely grub I ate yesterday (the less said about that the better!)

As most of you know I don't do the 'c' word but I bought this WW cook book at half price at the club on Wednesday. Anyway I made stuffed mushrooms for lunch today and they went down a treat - they're 2.5 WW points each and I had 2 - they were delicious and really easy to make. That's spurred me on to make the WW chicken kiev now I'll let you know how I get on...

With the weather being so horrid the local fireworks display was cancelled so I'm off to get the local paper now to find out where there's one on Tuesday.

Your wish is my command Ali...

Recipe for 2 mushrooms:-

- 2 very large flat mushrooms, wiped
- low fat cooking spray
- 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
- 125g (4.5oz) low fat soft cheese with garlic and herbs
- 1 tablespoon fresh white breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon finely grated parmesan cheese
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- chopped fresh parsley to garnish/lettuce/cherry toms

1) Preheat oven to gas mark 6, 200C/400F
2) Remove stalks from mushrooms and finely chop them. Spray frying pan three times with low fat cooking spray. Heat the pan, add the mushrom stalks and spring onions and cook them until softened - about 3 mins. Cool slightly.
3) Meanwhile, spray each side of the mushroom caps with low fat cooking spray and put them in a baking dish, with the brown gills facing upwards. Mix the soft cheese with the spring onion mixture and use it to fill the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper.
4) Mix the breadcrumbs and parmesan together and sprinkle over the mushrooms. Bake for 10-12 mins. (I needed a couple more mins to make piping hot).
5) Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, serve with shredded lettuce and cherry toms.

Forgot to add the important bits:-

Weight watchers points per serving - 2.5
Calories per serving - 115
1 serving is 1 mushroom, we had 2 each for lunch.

enjoy!!

The mushroom recipie sounds scrummy, thanks for putting it up Delaney:,
Smiling, have you been through the agonies .. I mean "experience"of hair highlighting yet?
I have been for my 20min walk this afternoon with Holly and it was lovely and sunny although the wind was cold.Tonight I have a man coming round...(Get down, Shep!) to supposedly present me with the first prize in a daily draw I was entered in to for answering a telephone survey on allergies 10 days or so ago. I know I have to sit through a demo of somekind and there is likely to be a huge catch to the prize said to be free weekend breaks in the u.k....my neighbour is coming round to join in the fun(?) so we will see what transpires...watch this space, as they say.

Belated happy anniversary greetings to TQ!

Good bye xx

Have to admit to being a chicken with the hair Teel, I haven't done anything with it. I cut my fringe as I couldn't see through it and haven't even made the appointment yet. I am a chicken. It has taken me so long to get it to this length I'm not sure I want it cut, all I do know is I don't really want it this long anymore - does that make any sense.

AS for the highlights, I was chatting with a friend at the weekend and decided I should stay with my own colour a little while longer, it is quite nice to know that you are the only one who doesn't have to dye their hair to cover the grey. Think that is a chickens answer to. I really need to do something drastic with it, it is driving me scatty.

Another problem is the boys keep bringing home 'friends' (nits to everyone else) and I would be mortified if the hairdresser found one while cutting - think that is the real fear - I know I just need to face it and make the appointment tomorrow I would feel much better with it cut, even just tidied up ......


Now I have used up 5 minutes talking about my hair and bugs, I ended up with an upset tummy yesterday. Not a lot of fun, has made eating strange today as I don't have much of an appetite but I know I need to eat and drink to build my body back up and let my metabolism kick back in. Nothing is easy - nits and tummy bugs, charming !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Am sitting here with my head itching now - apologees to every one.

Today has been good eating wise, really cr@p workwise. Had a lot of problems with the server at work this morning. But I survived it and the server is working better now, have just lost interest in the place.

Am waiting on a load of towels drying in the tumble then I can put another load of washing in it and another load in the washer and go to bed with my book - I really live the high life.

Morning all

Better keep this short - all 3 of my kids (that includes Dave) are off ill - wish me luck...

To make matters worse TOM has arrived and my tummy is killing me - mind you with my polycystic ovaries I suppose its about time I had one, I think the last one was June sometime...

I don't know if we'll make a bonfire party tonight - maybe I'll go on my own!

Will catch up with you all later. Have a good day everyone.

Well......
o.k....suspense over!At17:40 last night (he was late) a knock at the door heralded the entrance of Leonard...not at all what I had imagined...he was tall(well o.k. so is everyone next to me) and black American with no hair, in his 30's or so. In he came said he was allergic to dogs and cats (oops, lock Holly up) but never mind, he took antihistamine tabs,then he gave me the booklet with the prizes choice in it.Now..a mini hifi...a hairdryer with lots of attachments....a weeks holiday in a sunspot up to 6 people with the accomodation paid for but I had to pay for the travel and the meals....or as many U.K. weekend breaks in a year with the same terms, i.e. you pay for travel and the breakfast and dinner, at any of the listed hotels.......well, I've got a hairdryer..what a tough choice so I went for the U.K. weekend breaks.My neighbour and I flipped through the booklet and had to 'cos the only hotel in Suffolk was...IN OUR VILLAGE!!!!!!!!!! Most of the places were in Wales, Yorkshire, Devon , Cornwall and Scotland! But hey ho, I'm sure we will go somewhere in the more clement (warmer) weather.
And then we had to sit through the demonstation of a super dooper all singing and dancing hoover!Actually the machine was brilliant and doubled up as a dehumidifier and you could put aromatherapy oils in it as well.Now how much was it?I hear you ask!! Are you ready for this.......1599.......not so bad if you say it quickly!
Oh of course, I forgot, the firm thinks the customer has been "robbed" when he\she bought their old hoover,'cos this one is so superior, that you get the amount you paid for it taken off the price of the new one!to give Leonard his due, he did not do the hard sell bit too much. When I said no, he did the "ring the boss bit" and brought the price down but when I still said no, he did leave very pleasantly taking his expensive gadget with him, all wrapped up in its carrying case.
I hope he sold one today....he worked very hard on his presentation.....and all that 'cos I answered the phone one morning
So there we go.Oh, for anyone else who finds themselves being demonstrated to, L. was here for 1 hour 25minutes.......

Kirby salesmen - Yuck ! Although Leonard sounds cut in a different mould from the others I've come across, a swarmy bunch to say the least.

I've had a wonderful day. lost 3.5lbs, been to the fireworks, like Kim I like them more than the kids do, the rain stayed off while they were on as well, although it did come on while we walked back to the car and I've had a jammy doughnut, within my points.

I've had a stomach bug over the weekend so I can sympathise with everyone else who has sickies in the house.

If only everyday could be like this though, got caught up on a few things at work, so feel a bit better about it this evening - still no hair appointment - still chicken.
