I love cooking, growing my own vegetables
Doing jigsaws, but I now do them on the computer
I also love reading have been an avid bookworm all my life
I enjoy adulterating all my old favourite recipes to fit our new life style. I feel you do not have to deny yourself but be prepared to change how you do things, so that you can still enjoy life's little food treats

Thanks for the good wishes Ruth. The surgeon wanted to do it yesterday, but I was still in Bundaberg and so it is on for next Tuesday. I am a little anxious about it, but just have to relax and try not to stress about it. Where did you go for Easter? I am so glad that we have cooler weather now on the GC. Still beautiful, but jsut pleasant and not muggy. Have a great day. emoticon

HI Ruth, you are so right, it is hard to exercise when it is so muggy. I have had enough of it LOL. Be a couple more days yet then it will be hot for a couple of days. Bring on winter.
have a great weekend.
Wendy
