Reasons to be Cheerful;
Weather beautiful.
Definitely getting fitter, ran (properly running not my usual plodding jogging) for two lots of half an hour and didn't stop once.
Met with friends who are a pleasure to be with, no having to be careful about saying the wrong thing, all very relaxed and informal.
I have seen a lot of family members who I don't usually catch up with, but keep doing things nearby and popping in for cups of tea.
My approved food box arrived and it is fab (will do a post on this)
Finally labelled and posted about 100 items sold on ebay hurrah!


  1. Thank you for your comments on my blog I agree sometimes I feel ashamed of being british with some of the people you see about and its true I mean all these fake talentless bimbos and well paid thugs we seem to celebrate. I think Chris Martin shows so much feeling in his performances and is a proper british icon. xx

  2. Oops I also meant to say well done on the diet. I am too trying to lose weight although you don't sound like you need to lose weight your weight is fine, but I suppose its up to each individual how they feel.
    I am a size 12 which I know is not massive however I would like to be a size 10 again xx


If you leave a comment thank you so much, it means a lot.
