certainly not doing as many as I was when I was 'off sick' with my poorly leg/knee - but I am glad that I am still wanting to do Layouts - this one my DD - two fingers to the world - she's been let down badly by her 'ex' - he truned out to be a real shit - and in life my poor little girl has been a real good friend to all her mates but they never reciprocate - I hope one day she finds someone to love who will love her back as much as she loves them. One day.

Ate far far too much, feel really ill and stomache bloated and guilty after being upset at only losing half a pound this week - but it was a nice night out - keeping up with our 'must get out more' - must find more things to do together than just going out for a meal though.
half pound off at SW Sitting doing accounts for accountant - hating it - knowing it's gonna cost us £150 each to have them done - another £300 before Christmas (shit). And not feeling the rush to go get ready for our meal out tonight - just hope the meal is nice. DD at work - her BF messing her about AGAIN and she's real low and tired and fed up and I hurt when she hurts. Leg not so good either. Can't take dog out as it's raining hard and he hates rain. Can't think, at the moment, of any positives !
Key got 2lb's off on SW and I only lost half a pound................after being exceptional it makes me really annoyed with such a small loss - I really thought it was going to be 'at least' 2lb's was hoping for more and praying it would be a good 3.5 pounds this week - but rubbish half a pound - I know I know it's half a pound off but it just doesn't seem worth the effort when you've tried so hard and not been rewarded. Never mind eh. Need to be good after meal tonight to hopefully have another loss next week - my weight loss is so so slow.

I took annual leave - as I am still only doing a phased return to work - I didn't feel the Visual Fields test went well last week - and had to have an eye scan today - he now wants me to have a 'brain scan' - just to make sure what is happening to the optical nerve - I am pretty worried about it - but at least he seems thorough. I hope everything is OK. What with my leg and being back at work, already feeling low and tired - it just seems a bit much.

of making and making and making layouts - after losing my mojo for around 2.5 years or more maybe - and today (although I feel guilty not getting my accounts done for my accountant) I decided to make a star book to 'teach' to Linda when we get together on 16th December - thought I ought to practice it first and I will have to have all the elements cut out ready to stick on the day as it took me around 2.5 hours to prepare and make up and we shall only be together for around 2 hours total - with chatting and cuppas and cake - well I don't think we'll get it done in time as she isn't a crafter she needs to have it finished when we finish. Anyhoo - the other worry I have is that the thought of doing another LO made me feel quite queezy - HOPE I haven't lost my mojo again because I just did so many in the last fortnight - probably 14 LO - at least one each day ! We shall see.

was poorly last week and didn't stick to plan - although haven't really stuck to plan again this week - just hope I haven't gained much ! 5 weeks to Christmas and I COULD lose around half a stone to 10lb's, that's what I'm aiming for. Have booked a meal with my brother and sister so want to be back to around 11.5 stone in 3 weeks anyway. German Market in Birmingham NEXT Sunday, meeting with my mate on 16th December to do crafting at our shop as it's quiet on a Sunday - and the meal with family at 5 pm that day. Works meal at lunch-time on 21st don't REALLY know IF I fancy going on this but as it will only be me that doesn't go they'll think I'm being funny now that we have the new works regime. Want to source a couple of carol concerts to go to - love the atmosphere at Christmas-time.

This is a first for me, but I've really gotten into alphas recently and they can be very pricey - so making my own has been a real cost cutter - and very enjoyable to.

work til 9.30 am (from 8 am) bet they are well p'd off with me ! BUT had to go to physiotherapy and ONLY just made my 10 am appointment. Home, lunch bit of a tidy. Went to the Range and bought new curtains, my old curtains were 'OLD' - well 8 years old and well washed and very faded. So tidy for Christmas now in the lounge. Got to get hubby to paint the one wall in the lounge and up the stairs 'under' the banister where we have caught everything that has been taken up and down the stairs. I need to defrost my freezer in the next couple of weeks and then apart from a few christmas pressies and the Christmas food - the jobs a good-un.

So a nice surprise we decided to go to Stratford - upon - Avon today instead. The sun was shining, it was chilly - so an extra layer of a tee-shirt under my top, gloves and socks for walking around - brilliant. Haven't been there for a long time. Didn't buy much, but it was nice to browse. Making sure we do things now - not stuck in doing nothing wasting our lives away - (my leg didn't fair very well, but I'm so trying to just get on with my life now) don't think hubby is as 'into' this going out as I am, but he said he felt better than sitting at home watching TV all day whilst I crafted. He would normally go fishing but he's a fair weather fisherman - and today would have been too cold. A good day was had by all (DS and his GF came with us).

A couple of weeks ago we were treated to a meal out - a very expensive meal out on a couple of lovely people, whom I now call 'friends' - hopefully will be invited over for Christmas-time too............. We went here:
