15th Oct 2019 – update

Hey all, we had a lovely time round our niece’s home, she cooked pasta, chicken and veggies, and she made a beautiful sweet sauce to go with it. I’ve nicked the recipe! I forgot to take water, so I had 2 cups of tea, 1.5 sugars in each. My youngest niece is currently poorly, luckily …

9th Oct 2019 – it’s my birthday!

Hey all, hope you are well! A (slightly mournful) disclaimer – just to let you know, this hasn’t been a proud day, but it’s been a great day. I promised myself the blog would be honest, warts and all. Today has been a great day, work was not too busy, until about 4.45pm anyway, got …

3rd Oct 2019 – oh dear!

Hi all, hope you’ve had or are having a good day 😊 Today… hmmmm…. Ok, so my niece came round today, it’s a rare treat. She popped round to give me my birthday pressie just in case I don’t see her before my birthday. We got take away, and no chance for exercise, because of …

2nd Oct 2019 – good food day, some exercise and emergency housework!

Evening all, hope this post finds you well. Got a message from Paul before he left work to let me know our eldest niece is coming round tomorrow, so it’s gonna be a takeaway. I’ll have to try and order the least bad thing going. What our nieces visit also means is that I’ll need …

I am pleased to report I didn’t need to pin down the nephew and give him a scrub down 🤣 for anyone confused, and wanting to know more please do see post dated 14th Sept. Getting the kids to wash and clean teeth was uneventful with the exception of the littleun, who decided to roll …

14th Sept 2019 – what a lovely day, and it’s not over yet!

Having some kids round was agreed during the week, and being fools neither Paul nor I thought about food! So after fighting the kids into the bathroom, not too bad for the girls, especially as the older one knows she can only have a spray of my perfumes if she’s clean, but the boy…  WELL… …

11th Sept 2019 – another good food and exercise day!

Tried my lactose free milk today… NO TUMMY ISSUES – YAY! Had my usual daytime food, 1 egg, 1 handful of nuts, grapes, cherries and strawberries, then my salad for lunch. No sneaky oven baked crisps today! The girls came round for dinner today, so I cooked chicken breast in a Maggie bag, with peppers, …

8th Sept 2019 – family feast!

What a lovely day! My side of the family was here for dinner today, all bar my daughter’s other half, who was unfortunately working. My aunt is flying up to my cousin tomorrow, so she was also able to join us today. Somehow we all managed to fit round two tables 👏 Anyway, I started …
