iPad HD

Edit:thanks Deidre I have bought a case today...

I am in love with my new toy, yes my iPad , fun fun fun....

When I ordered it I had it engraved for free and also bought the smart cover, as well as the attachment to download pictures straight from my camera or the SD card.

What I would love is to make a cover, has anyone made one or knows a pattern?
For my iMac pro I have a wonderful red leather case my son bought for me but they don't make them for the iPad .

Have been teaching my last class before Easter , but have a ever growing number of quilts to quilt. Not complaining ..... Just need to stay on top of it all.

Must take some pictures of new books, yarn and fabric I bought.
DH had a study day today and has been very good sending of another part of his study for marking, can't wait for him to finish. Not easy to study when you reach his age, very big grin he is much older than me... Six whole years to be exact.

Have a great day

Ps. Must be time for another giveaway soon

Weight loss

I have had a number of you ask about how I am losing my weight , well I have tried over the years many things and nothing has worked for me like this.
After I went about my knee back in December only to be told by the surgeon to lose some weight first, of course I didn' t like him having telling
me that, I went home and sulked for a few days.

I went back to my GP and discussed it with him and he suggested to try the intensive weightless clinic, they usually do this only short term for people to lose weight prior to surgery, but because I am doing so well it is ok for me to stay on it longer.

All it is is three shakes per day, about 600 calories, two pieces of fruit and as many vegetables as I like. I do have check ups, blood test to make sure my liver and everything else is ok.

I must say I have never felt this good about a diet before, maybe I was just ready.

Last year was not good for me and I needed to take control.
