Sunday 29th Jan 2012

I will have to make the most of today, as tomorrow will mark the dawning of a whole new chapter of my life. I know I have told you this before, but this is a serious business and is definitely worthy of another mention, before it leaps onto me like a ton of bricks.

One good thing has happened already this morning, I lost another 2lb in weight, which means I have lost.... (drum roll here).......7lb in the last three weeks! So onward and upward with the Weight Watchers diet. They even gave me a star when I logged onto their site this morning. How cool is that?? Now I need to sit back and wait for all the other wonderful things that are going to happen today. (Big smile here)

I went to Newcastle on Wednesday and met up with my sister and cousin. They showered me with presents for my birthday, while we had coffee and brought each other up to date with what was going on in  our lives. I think I was able to sum up my last month very quickly, which gave the other two plenty of time to fill me in with their news, both good and bad.

When we had finished chatting I wandered around the town looking for something to wear at my niece's forthcoming wedding. However, I didn't see anything even worth trying on, as all the shops seemed to be selling off their winter stock and truthfully, I wasn't impressed. Therefore I will have to make another trip, which isn't so bad as I might have lost a bit more weight. - hopefully!! Actually I didn't buy very much at all. I didn't even spend the £25 worth of M&S vouchers I had collected. And that brings me to another thing, M&S have been moving things around in their Newcastle store and not for the better. Since when do you find  make up etc located in the men's department on the ground floor. when all the women's stuff is on the first floor? The children's gear has now been placed upstairs where all the women's classic wear was. I could ramble on for ages here about what they had moved and where they had put it, but I won't. Suffice to say I am not very happy with what they have done. I might even send them an email. (At least they haven't moved the cafe in the food hall where they serve a delicious chilled white wine.)

The rest of the week went much the same, except bits and pieces day was Friday instead of Thursday. I was too shattered after my trip to Newcastle to even think about rushing out Thursday morning!! Crikey, is that the first sign of my age!!

Soooo next week begins with a bang tomorrow. By the time I write my next blog, I will be a decade older and if that doesn't call for a glass or two of wine, I don't know what does.

Have a lovely day,



  1. Happy Birthday for tomorrow Eileen. Enjoy that wine!
