Wannaskipandlaugh - cripes have you got a shorter name?? lol .. you are lovely too thank you so much for the nice words. Im not sure about the pretty .. my sister got the looks, I got the brains, personality and sense of humour lol .. just kidding .. no personality hehehe. Please dont think I am putting myself down .. I have just never considered whether I am pretty or anything like that .. to me everyone has something about them that is "pretty", sometimes its not something you see though. I LOVE your thought about the cravings .. that is fantastic .. and definitely one I will remember and share
Ive only had 4 cats in my life .. Silky was my brothers cat when we were kids (pure black), Tammy must have been part maine coon cos she was a HUGE long haired marmalade baby (who loved to go for a ride in the car - had to remember to check it if I left the door open!), then later on I fostered a few (Rosie, Brainy, Sherlock, Stormer) until I finally caved in and got 2 more. Blackjack reminded me of Silky in appearance but unfortunately he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and met a car. Mayday was one my daughter bought home barely fitting in my hand, he had been abandoned with his siblings, so I took all of them to the vets and he said Mayday wouldnt survive (he was the runt)... he is now a BIG ball of ginger fur which my daughter and her kids drag everywhere still lol.
Im not sure if its strange for animals to have so many different personalities ... I think a lot of spirits like to come back for a visit sometimes and pets are the best way they can be safe and show their personalities. My dad dog Buddy (son to Baer & Pepa) has a personality just like my late nephew, funny, full of life and determined.
Isles - Wahoo! 1.4!! Thats brilliant
Im sure you are up for the challenge this week, just enjoy yourself and don't think too hard about each choice, just accept the choices you make. Have a great time .. and Im looking forward to seeing a piccy
At least it will look like you are having fun Im sure .. mine is just ..... eh .. nevermind lol .
Isles - It always makes me giggle when I read of snow boots coming out and yesterday we were sitting outside enjoying the sunshine, our spring is hitting, the calves are being born on my sisters farm, daffodils are blooming ... and you are talking about snow boots lol .. measurements any time will be fine .. the date at the top of my chart will be last Saturdays, but Im sure that is close enough. Im being bad about exercise ... while I am getting my metabolism adjusting to the new eating regime Im not really doing anything exercise wise .. but as soon as the weight loss slows Im gonna kick start it properly, rather than 1-2 times a week as I am doing at the moment.
So today has again started of slow ... but I have done my weigh in ....

Very happy with that result .. had to get on the scales 3 times to make sure I was reading it right lol. Over 1/5 of the way to my goal! I know its going to slow, but Im going to enjoy every loss regardless of how big or small .. and I know when the aunt arrives it will go back up, but as long as its coming off I will be happy
