Well done Carol on stayon on track so far this week, like Cat says, you can do it until Monday too. You're back on track with a vengenge luv
It is absolutely freezing here. I've never seen it so cold anywhere, well at least not while I've had to live there. Tonight it's going to be -20 to -25 below freezing. I was planning on going to Curves after dinner but Dave doesn't want me out there driving as we had snow through last night and although the roads were somewhat cleared, they stayed wet through the day and are now freezing and I'm sure there's load of black ice lurking around. I'm not looking forward to tomorrows drive to work. We had off today, due to the snow, but I did go out early and do my new kid for my part time job, I didn't enjoy driving and it just makes me so mad that there's people out there driving like it's a beautiful summer day, maybe the snow and slush is invisable to them? They make me very nervous, especially when they get right up my bum, but I've learnt over the years to ignore them cos I'm not going to kill myself for anyone. We've now had two snowfalls so far this season and I hope that's it, cos I'm ready for spring.
Cathy, I'm so jealous again that you're going home. I bet you'll see a big difference in Oliva, she'll have grown so much. Remember to add new pics for us to ooh and ahh over again when you get back. Do you drive while you're back home? I plan on going this summer and going alone, but I'm a bit worried about the driving cos usually for the first few days, I have to rely on the kids to tell me I'm on the wrong side!
Right, dinner is ready, must go and nosh.
Have a good one all, keep warm.

Jeez Chris, I can only imagine what that cold must feel like i absolutely hate having to commute in the snow You bet i'll be posting pics of Olivia you'll be sick of the sight of her the trouble is now when i go shopping i keep buying stuff for her a fur trimmed snowsuit, a yellow teddy bear, a pink teddy bear and the other day when i was shopping i saw a little pink backpack with a bunny on it with matching slippers so of course i had to buy those too i'll have to quit tho' because last time i'd bought her so many outfits there was'nt much room left for my stuff

I sometimes drive when i go back but last time MIL only put hubby on her insurance so i could'nt..the other side of the road thing does'nt bother me because the roads are that busy its hard to forget the only time i've done that is over here because where i live is a quiet rural area and i was going to the store when i saw a Jeep heading straight for me i sat bolt upright and thought "whats this a$$hole doing on the wrong side of the road" and i stood my ground and kept heading straight for him until i realised that I WAS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD and changed lanes

Oh dear!!!Whats that nice saying now.....KEEP DEATH OFF THE ROADS, DRIVE ON THE PAVEMENT!!
Keep safe in this icy treacherous weather, everybody. Suffolk has been clear of snow so far, but it is only just into January really. A couple of years ago or so, we had bad snow falls as late as March, so I won't get complacent yet!

Goodness gracious, I just waffled on on the exercise thread so decided to stop and come and waffle on on this one.
I was invited out to breakfast this morning, went to a diner near by which looks like a right dump, outside and in, but they do fantastic brekkies and HUGE portions and good value for money. It's like the diners you see in the films and American shows, looks like a huge silver caravan part of a train. I ate a famers omlette which was filled with broccoli, mushrooms, green peppers, tiny bit of meat and mozerella cheese, so I'm high in my point range today but feel very full still and I ate over six hours ago, so I should be ok, just munching on something low points later on.
I just took J and some of his friends to their friends funeral who died last week, I could feel myself getting all teary at the thought of the family who have lost a very important part of their lives and of J being mature enough and wanting to go and pay his respects for a great friend. We talked last night about how he was feeling and he seems sad but is coping. He said he'd better take some tissues as he knew he would cry. I was impresssed with his honesty of admitting his feelings to his Mum. He's a great kid and I can't imagine life without him. I want him around for ever and with last weeks tradegy I feel that I worry more about him, maybe not more than usual, but I say things more to him than I did about where he's going, who he was with, panicing a bit more I reckon. It's so hard not to though.
Told you'd I'd waffle on again...sorry.
Right, I think I had better go and finish some laundry and get some polish on my dusty furniture until he calls to be picked up, take my mind off of this.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Take care.

Chris; I don't think that's waffling - it's perfectly understandable that a tragedy like that is going to bring out all those feelings in you. Whenever I hear of someone losing a child on the TV I find it really upsetting because I just can't imagine how I would feel if anything happened to one of mine, but when it happens to someone you know it's bound to bring it home even harder. We're all here to listen so feel free to talk about it if you want to.

Well the vodka monster in me surfaced last night. Ray and me watched the gangs of new york, which was a bit slow and drank far too much vodka while we put the world to rights. Lucky him is still sleeping it off, while I got up with the kids. Also had 3 packets of crisps and a packet of chocolate buttons. Am still hoping to see a loss this week I have worked hard up until then, at the eating anyway if not the exercise. But I will work at that this week.

Was Rays nephews first birthday yesterday which was lovely, but can't believe he is a yer old, poor wee soul is loaded with the cold, but still did his best to enjoy the bouncy castle at his party. My niece was at the party too was good to see them together. The mums are Rays half sisters, one is his mothers daughter and the other his dads. Although they get on fine, Rays sisters that is, they don't see much of each other, was really good to see them both in the same place yesterday with their kids, like a real family

The radio has just gone dead on me, need to go and invesitgate and get a shopping list organised and the washing on and so on and so on and so on

The bourbon biccies monster reached out to me lat night! Still, never mind, I'll put it down to a rough day and start a fresh now
Thanks for the kind words Shell, I was begining to feel like a raving lunatic worrying myself daft everytime one of the kids step out the door!
Carol, it's so nice to see family together once in a while. I felt very homesick yesterday and realised I'd not spoken to my brother in three years! I think I"ll phone him today for a little chat
We've had more snow through the night, just a dusting, now it's raining so hopefully it'll all get washed away until the next load dumps on us.
Have a good one all.

Hi Girls

Chris, Shell said it all i for one would be paranoid if anything like that happened to a friend of one of mine it is so sad and it happens all too often over here and usually there is drink involved.

I "let myself go" last night too and indulged in a few ginger snaps i would have much rather have had some chocolate (if i had some in) when i think of all the calories involved but for some reason i'm not craving that at all..what happened? maybe i've powered out on it.

I did'nt exercise yesterday i did a major clean up and moved all my computer stuff back upstairs into my gym..when it was downstairs i used to be online and have the tv on watching a movie but when hubby comes home all he wants to watch is the news so he sits at the dining room table about 20ft away watching another tv and its a contest between the both of us for who can get the volume the loudest it causes some arguments i can tell you so now he wants to know why i've moved it and i've just told him ( its so i can get some peace dummy! ) hmmm, wonder if i can get him to move the big tv up here for me?

Have to confess that I haven't read all of this page as I am going to bed in a minute and just wanted to pop in. I hope that everyone is well. I have skimmed through the posts and see that a few of you have been a little naughty - lol - glad that it is not just me. I have been really bad this weekend.

Still haven't joined the gym as my sister wants to put on a bit of weight before going - lmao - legs too skinny for shorts - lol. Have been trying to substitute with other exercise for now. Went to a leisure park yesterday and played in the the indoor fun centre with loads of stairs - lol and bumy slides etc. Today I refused a lift into town and walked up the long steep hill to the bus stop. It occurred to me that it is not the walk up the hill or the exercise that I don't like. It is finding the motivation to get of my butt and get ready to go out - lol.

I treated myself to a nice gym bag, more trousers and tops, trainers, sports bottle etc for both the gym and also to wear out walking etc. I live in black trousers, heels and tops normally but find it much easier to run about in tracky bottims etc - lol.

Have stocked up on really nice meals for next week. Spent more than I should have but figure that it will be worth it if it stops me cheating - lol.

Chris, I hope things get better for you soon.

Morning all, Well it's MOnday again, I was an angel yesterday and even braved a good walk with the dogs in slush/snow. We had some more snow yesterday afternoon after a few hours of freezing rain ( this is a bit harder than sleet) so of course with it being cold, the snow then settled again over the slush that had fallen earlier but walking in the dark, a few times I stepped in what I thought was just snow and went ankle deep into freezing cold slush...brrrr. Needless to say my feet were sopping when I got home and my trousers soaked up to my calfs and I had my big snow boots on!
This morning everywhere is ice. The car park behind my house sounds like the ground is breaking when a car trys to pull out and last night someone decided to try and drive off and got stuck for about 15 mins. I would have offered to go out and push but was in my jammies and have already had an encounter with some maintenece men on Saturday in my nightie and short dressing gown, it was very embarrassing as Lew got out the gate that these men had opened looking for burst pipes, and so I dahsed out after him, not knowing they were outside and gave them a good show of legs and probably bum. I saw them again a bit later ( I was dressed by then) and the younger one of the two said it was nice to see I'd got dresed to come out this time, so I appologised for earlier and the cheeky beggar said, no, don't be sorry, it was very nice! I was getting redder by the minute and then the older guy added that seeing me in a shortie dressing gown had made hiss day! I couldn't get in the house fast enough. Hope I don't have to call them in this house in future to fix anything.
Dave left early this morning for a ten day trip to have lazer surgery on his eyes. So it's me and the kids. I need to go out later and buy some fresh veg to keep me on the good eating track and hopefully by the time he gets back, he'll see another few pounds off again
Right, time for a cuppa and then outisde ( dressed of course) to chip away the ice so there are no broken bones from any slips.
Have a great Monday everyone
