Food and Froof


We had a birthday. 
This prompted Miss nunde to whip up a vanilla choc Oreo cake. 
After devouring a slice that consisted of 30 pounds of butter, a vat of sugar and a couple of Oreos,
we all agreed it was a little bit rich for us but not too rich to stop us having seconds.
  So apon feeling my arteries harden I decided to try to get a little bit healthy. I wanted to do this 4 years ago but I was too busy eating yummy artery hardening food so I didnt have time.
I pondered all the things I have done before that have helped me with lifestyle changes. 
There was only one answer.
Extreme angry knitting
It worked when I gave up being a chain smoker 57 months ago, I knitted a massive green blanket to stave off  urges to smoke.  I thought I would tap into those tools and knit like a needle wielding manic.
So out came the biggest bloody pink blanket in the world today. 
Tomorrow the angry knitting begins.
Yet another blanket is knitted as a bad habit is kicked.
I will miss you Cake and Cookies but my arteries wont:)

I'm the same! you know you shouldn't but you do and sometimes you wish you hadn't! Keeping busy is definitely the cure. Well done for kicking the smoking habit :)

That cake does look super good though!

ha ha ha - i can relate. when i gave ups smoking (still miss it after 8 years) i took up playing board games with my husband - we were fanatical about them.
i need to give up the bad food too - my body is so unforgiving now that it's 40......arghhh if only cake was good for you and veggies weren't!

Oh I do sympathize. I loooove cream-cakes. Just fill your mind with a picture of the exploding man of Monty Python fame. Yuk. (and keep your daughter out of the kitchen)
Good luck.

Well thanks for the inspiration. I've cut the nurrells down to about 6 a day but . . knitting? Then winter's coming and . . alrighty then post your bloody pattern! But I'm not going the cake I have enough vices.

Little Eve - Thanks, Now if only I could kick the bad food habit

Ink Obsession - Oh it was super good.

Levin - ahhh yes, it is that magic number 40. life begins at 40 but your body starts to hold you back if you are not careful. Its so unfair

Elsie - Monty Python is always a brilliant distraction.

Baino - lol Baino darling I think knitting would clash with your other habits. You need a spare hand to drink sparkly)

Yay for you! I'm trying to kick the sugar too but at Aa particular time of the month it can be daunting. It really pays off though when the clothes start fitting better and the mirror is kinder. Go the angry knitting! Should be much easier than giving up smoking methinks. Cherie

willywagtail - Now that would be a bonus:)
