Bank HOLLER!! day

The new year has been quite lovely so far. I haven't left the house but had some visitors, got started on some new projects and enjoyed my last few days of lazing around before the day job starts again.

Chill-out material - this is what I love to do when there's nothing I have to do

♥ Drawing with friends - My friend Jen called in with her girls Georgia and Izzy. I left out some paper and my colouring pencils and she drew me a picture of me and her, Izzy, Mummy and Daddy. George's two and a crafter artist in the making, for sure!

♥ A surprise! - Jen had a surprise for me - a dress I left in an online shopping cart on her computer! How lovely. It's a double gift because the belt is detachable and awesome. I'll blog this again when I wear it later in the month. Thank you very much Jennifer :)

♥ Thinking about new projects - I started to think about a new project. Here's sneaky peek at the gorgeous supplies, they are brilliant in colour, much better than I had anticipated when I ordered them. I think the final pieces will be really fun!

♥ Calorie counting - I downloaded this app 'My Fitness Pal' to my iPhone and I think it's going to be the key to weight loss success this year. Not only does it have loads of foods and brands already in the database, but it's easy to add new ones (only needed to do this once so far), and it seems to help that I have to think about what I put in my mouth all the time! It tracks your weight loss over time, too. Mmmmm Glorious Soup! I heart you, Marco Pierre White (in a sex way!)

Have you been enjoying quiet time? Or are you looking forward to getting back into the routine? I'm looking forward to the post being delivered on time again!
