Better late than never..

Good evening all.
I hope you are all well.
 I have had a lovely day.All the washing dried on the line, old doors and other junk taken to the tip and my Mum and Stepdad have just left after coming ours for Sunday tea.
We have had minted lamb shanks with lots of veg and then last night i made the dessert which was a slimming world recipe for Key Lime Pie.
Yum it was nice but very tangy.lol
Me and hubby are on a diet at the mo so i have been trying out lots of slimming world recipes, so far we have had 2 salmon dishes, a piri piri chicken and our fav was the herby meatballs with spaghetti.mmmm
So enough of my waffle and on to my very late card which seems to have been inspired by todays dessert.

Hi Coops

This looks amazing .. .. was it inspired by your lime pie I wonder?

I love all the zingy green!

Have just been reading your previous posts. I hope those antibiotics are working their magic and everything settles down for you.
