Oh dear. Today I am so tired. I don't know why. I'm a bit snuffly and my nose itches, I hope I don't come down with a cold!!!

Mark has spent the day in the garage swearing repeatedly at his motorbike. This is the one he got and had to strip down to almost nothing and then re-build, spending a fortune in the process! I'm finding it so hard to be supportive about it now, especially when it's eating money we don't have. It's not even as if he needs it on the road, he just WANTS it on the road. He has a running bike, but just won't let this one be until after winter! grrrr!

Well, kitty is still here. I've decided he's here to stay now. I'm not parting with him if anyone turns up to collect him LOL. He's my baby. If I sit at the computer he comes and sits on my shoulder. If I sprawl on the sofa to read my book or watch the TV he comes and lays as close under my chin as he can. He's my baby.. awwwwwwww.

Today I made two different soups. God I can't believe how domesticated I'm getting LOL. But if it's a free food and I can eat it when I'm hungry.. I'll take it.

So I made a broccoli and cauliflower soup....

and a carrot and swede soup.

The white dollop in the middle is very low fat yogurt but I think it would have been better with very low fat fromage frais, but I don't have any at the moment. They're both actually very nice, although very different. The broccoli and cauliflower is lacking in texture a bit, it's a bit watery. I wonder if I put some very low fat fromage frais into it it might thicken a bit. Anyway, it's definately edible as it is. mmmmmmm

I also made my favourite free food. I can eat this till the cows come home.. mooooo LOL

Some people call it a slimming world quiche, I tend to prefer to call it a bacon savoury slice. It's so quick and easy to make and again.... freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

4 0r 5 rashers of bacon, chopped into squares and dry fried.
8oz very low fat cottage cheese
3 eggs

beat the eggs, add the cottage cheese, give it a good mix then add the dry fried bacon. put it into an oven proof dish and cook for half an hour a 190 degrees. That's it. Eat it hot or cold.

Cottage pie for dinner, with leek and swede mash on the top for me. Cauliflower, mange tout peas and cabbage to go with it. Yum.
