Coffee is my friend

It's true, I have this love of all things coffee. Be it in hot liquid form, ice cream or in Tiramisu...I adore coffee. So it was a sad day when I broke the carafe to my La Cafetiere French coffee press. We've looked high and low for a replacement carafe out here and all we could find was Bodum brand coffee presses. So my new french press is the Chambord by Bodum. One of these days I may break down and buy a coffee maker but until then it's me and my French Press!

What we leave behind
is not what is engraved in stone monuments,
 but what is woven
into the lives of others.

Where has all of my time gone?

So it's more than a little obvious that I've been guilty of neglecting my blog. I've been doing something odd these days- I've been working out at the gym near daily. Hey, one has got to do something with all of this so called "free time". And while I have access to a gym with in walking distance that's also "free" I might as well use it right?

Now with all of the time I've spent at the gym it's got me doing some other stuff- like sewing. Okay  should say doing alterations to some of my skirts. I've also gone out and done something that I haven't in quite a long time, I've bought myself some summer clothes. One doesn't really need summer clothes in England unless you're going to another country for a summer vacation, LOL! But none the less I've done just that. My hard work has not gone unnoticed as my  sister in law the fitness guru  has noticed my efforts at getting into shape (I greatly admire her by the way) and complimented me on my weight loss. I don't know if my husband has noticed but at least someone else has which is a big boost to my ego.
Now I'm off like a dirty shirt- got to hit the  gym before my mammogram appointment.
I promise to be more diligent in my blog posting. I've got several recipes in the works and will get to posting them soon! I've got to make a better effort at kicking my husband off of the computer :-)
