Today is my last day of my break and I start a new job tomorrow, 1st June. Feeling a little anxious, anxious coz my break has past me by and anxious because, I am moving back into training and development-my dream job, in a totally new industry – retail.. feeling anxious cos, I worry I have forgotten how to do it.. heheheh.. I worry too much dont I, thats why I need to craft… to take my minds off things.. hahaha! Thank God for the blessing for crafting in my life πŸ™‚ and my bloggy friends to journey with me.. for I am not alone *wink*.

I can only thank God for His grace and blessings in my life at the moment, coz I have been thru a lot, and this has been a healing journey for me… heart!

I made this card for myself, to encourage myself as I begin this new journey .. to believe in myself, in what I can do, and just be my best! :). This card is inspired by Less is More challenge.. another very simple card, just stamping and distressing. Love this sentiment stamp from Unity…and fern from pti

……. say a prayer for me, yeah, that my health is steady to endure the demands of the job and that I know how to learn to relax and let go when I need to *wink*.. many thanks!

Also to share.. some pics.. of the food I whipped up during the short break. I hardly cook but when I do, I can cook up a storm.. luckily hubby appreciates them… I shall miss cooking when I start my new job.. enjoy… yes.. I have been making western dishes.. and will share more of local dishes when I do cook them.. (will have to wait for my next cooking binge :P)

one of my favourite dip : Basil leave, olive oil, garlic, pine nut, lemon juice and parmesan cheese blend.
Cubed baquette drizzled in extra virgin olive oil and toasted... crunchy yums
Simple breakfast with hubby πŸ™‚ : Black pepper sausage, scrambled eggs with cheese and parsley, buttered bread and coffee πŸ™‚
Salad with cherry tomatos, dressing balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, parmesan cheese and top it off with my crunch olive toast
Another hearty breakfast of bacon, sunny side up eggs, buttered bread πŸ™‚
Baked pizza - lebanese bread base, spread with basil pesto and tomato prasatta, ingredients of diced tomato, capsicum of red/green/yellow, onion, ham, shitake mushroom and lotsa cheese toppings.
Angel hair pasta with capsicum of red, yellow & green, shitake mushroom, ham, with extra virgin olive oil, cayenne pepper and herbs, topped it with grated parmesan cheese πŸ™‚
