Alphabet Thursday from Eden House .Q is for......


Ok as some of you who know me I am overweight. ( working towards reducing it )

I am very much in favour of the above saying .

Go to fullsize imageversus Go to fullsize image

I would quite happily eat  a whole dairy milk bar but enjoy far more two squares of plain good quality chocolate.

Go to fullsize image and a glass of veuve clique  is far prefferable to Go to fullsize imagecheap cava
dont get me wrong I am NOT a snob and will quite happily drink Cava

and then we have  cars

Go to fullsize imageA porsche would be fantastic if money was no option Go to fullsize image but I am very happy with the quality of my corsa  ( fingers crossed it passes the MOT today )

There is so many more comparrisons I could make but I thing you get the idea of where I am heading .
Life is about doing the best you can .
These last few days in the uk have shown that there is such a greed  around . I Know there is great hardship around but I also know that some of my family survived the war and there was real hardship then with ration books .
Maybe if the world looked at quality as opposed to quantity it would be a better place .
And I don't mean buying the most expensive just the best we can.

I am sure there are better uses of the letter Q  check out Jennys Blog  here

I've got my fingers crossed for you.
My pickup is 10 years old, so I know that feeling when it's time to renew...

Great post.

I hope your car passed!
I'm in full agreement with you on quality. We have such a tendency to be seduced by the cheap and easily-available.

You are doing great to only choose the "better for you" chocolate and the serving size. I have a very sweet tooth and so that is very hard for me.

Great Q post. With my hubby and I living in a great distance and a totally different state than our kids, Quality time spent with them is definitely appreciated, since the quantity time is not possible.

Blessings & Aloha!
& yes, I was so happy to find that fabric with "God" on it...I specifically chose the little squares to sew in, that were either from material I used to sew them when they were younger or fabric that related to special things/interests in their lives. Thank you for visiting!

Oh, I hear you.

Quantity is always the most tempting for me. There is a show called Hungry Girl where she makes low cal food in high volumes for those of us that are always, always hungry!

Love this post.
