Angela’s chicken pesto surprise

I had left over chicken drumsticks I had cooked in the oven yesterday 
I wanted to make them into a totally different meant rather than just eat them cold 
So I cut them up 
I cooked some spaghetti 
Opened a jar of  pesto sauce to a saucepan and heated it up with the chicken pieces 
Then added some feta cheese 
That’s the surprise 
Tossed it all together and voila 
Dinner is served 
Tastes really good! 
What have you done to leftovers to make a while new meal?

The book club

Yesterday a friend and I went off to see this movie. 
I had seen the ads on the telly and thought it was my kinda thing 
Oh my. 
It so was. It was so very funny 

It was about four women who had been friends almost all their lives and had started a book 
Book club meeting once a month to discuss the chosen novel and their lives 

I’m not going to say any more
Only that go and see this. It was brilliant and I highly recommend it

My girls and me

Just because I haven’t posted about my precious girls in a while. Here are some selfies I took 
While i was with them this morning
First one is melody. Her mother bought her a toy dinosaur 
She loves them 

 And this is little Brianna 
Growing more and more everyday 
Proud grandma I am

Is it spring yet?

The sun was shining over the weekend. But it was cold 
Hubby decided he was going to weed out the front. I had lost a few pot plants the six weeks we were 
Away so I asked him to pull those our and I went off to Bunnings to get some replacements 

I decided to go for some instant colour. I’m very ready for spring and so over this cold dreary weather 

 So while he pulled weeds I replanted and cleaned up the pots. Moved some around and rejuvenated
Still so much to do out there and that’s just the front! 

But slow and steady will win the race 
A little each week and soon it will be lovely outside again 
How’s the weather affecting your gardens? 
Have a great week

Getting back to normal

My diet hasn’t been as healthy as it should be. When your not well, you kinda want the yummy not so good for you things. 
So this was my late lunch today. 
I’m trying kombucha to help with my gut flora. Hope it makes a difference 

I’m still resting as much as I can and trying to keep warm
Working on a C2C for a single bed. 
Hope your all well and happy

It’s after five somewhere in the world

When pain levels are high 
And the weather is crazy 
Take one each of these 
Get into a hot bubble bath 
And pretend your on a tropical holiday 
If ya like add music
But I just wanted to close my eyes and drift away!
I am feeling better, almost over the flu. 
But the body is not loving me right now 
Hope your all doing well

So sick

I have come home and fallen very very ill 
It started with a headache and sore throat and quickly developed into a chest infection 
I went off to the GP and she gave me some antibiotics 
Today is day five on those antibiotics and I feel so much better 
These are the elements of my recovery
The Greek chicken soup I made today. I haven’t been able to do 
Any cooking as I haven’t been able to stand for long 
But as for the other elements, they have sustained me
Codral cold and flu tablets 
Lozenges, the antibiotics and of course 
Of course hubby has been so wonderful looking after me 
I must really have looked sick! 
But I am on the road to recovery and normal services will resume shortly
Hope your all well and happy

Well finally

Remember I bought all new furniture
The coffee table and television stand were delivered the next week
But the table and chairs were out of stock 
But finally they were delivered today 
What we didn’t know. Was they were not assembled 
So while I unpacked hubby assembled

And viola! 
New dining set 

What do you think 
I’m is bigger than what we had 
Which was the point. 
But I don’t think it’s too big. We can still walk around it easily and there is plenty of room for the chairs to be pulled out and sat on 
I’m happy
