Reasons to be Happy

You're not from round here

My reasons to be happy

I've been quite unwell the past week or so with a rotten cold and chest infection. I can however smile as I feel a lot better today than I have been! It would appear that I am on the mend and thankfully the Mini Mes haven't been poorly.

I lost another 3lb when I weighed myself at the weekend! I'm on a mission to lose some weight for Christmas and so far, so good. I've only really cut out coke, bread and stopped snacking so I don't feel hungry or too deprived.

We had my brother and his fiancee round for dinner last night and we had a lovely evening. I cooked our favourite, salmon and gnocchi bake, and they seemed to enjoy it too. We discussed wedding plans too which is exciting.

It's always nice to have plans to look forward to and this weekend we are having a Greek night at my parents home. I can't say I have eaten much Greek food before so this will be a fun experience for us. Any suggestions on what dish or recipes I should cook to take along are welcome!

What reasons to you have to be cheerful this week?
