Morning everyone.

Thank you for the good wishes, EOS. I hope you have a very enjoyable, peaceful Easter.

Maz, have a good sleepover shift. Are you working again on Monday, or can you have a day of relaxation? :-)

Well done for finding the top, DET. If you are still trying to lose a bit of weight you are as well waiting for a while before looking for the main outfit. You might have lost a few more pounds by then, as long as OH doesn't keep putting cake in front of you!! :-D :-D

The family, as usual, are away for Easter, so I won't be seeing them. I am still in the doghouse anyway, so not even an Easter card from them this year :-( :-(

I am off to find the latex gloves and paint the shed while the sun is trying to shine :-D :-D

LG, if you look in, have a good time with the littlies :-) :-)

Enjoy your day everyone :-) :-)

Morning all

Thank for the best wishes EOS, and the same to you. Have you tucked into your hotcross buns yet or are you saving yourself for the eggs.......after church of course!

YG- it sounds as if you were at sixes and sevens yesterday, but it all worked out in the end. An unexpected visit from your friend must have been very welcome :-D

Maz, it was a pity that A wasn't around to give you a lift home. After a long day, it must have felt wonderful to be chauffeured instead of waiting for a bus.

LG must be being run around in circles with her littlies. Lovely to have them and also lovely when they go home!

We went into town in the afternoon for coffee and a mouch, and managed to find a patterned top to wear to a wedding reception in May. I'll try and wait until the end of May into June before looking for an outfit for THE wedding.

Does anyone have family gathering plans for Easter Sunday?? Our 3 are off doing their own thing!!

Enjoy your day what ever you have planned :-)

Evening everyone. I hope you have all had a good day and that the weather has been kind to you :-) :-)

I decided to set off on the bus to go into town, but whilst waiting my friend pulled up outside my house, so I had to dash back.

It was lovely to see her again and she brought her little grandson with her and we had a good hour together playing with him. It scuppered my plans for town, so I just went to the supermarket after she left.

All in all, quite a good day :-) :-)

Morning all - just checking in.

Strange that you had Cottage Pie last night Maz - so did we!!! Mind you, ours was topped with potato mash. Fingers crossed that your shift isn't too arduous today. They'll probably be all over you like a rash & you'll be given the third degree :-D

Enjoy your pampering session YG. A Terracotta shed? My, that is Posh!

LG hope your journey to the coast goes to plan. Lets hope that the traffic isn't too horrendous.
"Are we nearly there yet?" "I need to go to the loo!" "She hit me!!" - Ah, the memories of small back-seat passengers ;-)

Jem - any plans for a good walk this weekend?

Morning everyone. A lovely day again :-) :-) :-) :-)

Got my hair appointment time confused so only just made it by the skin of my teeth this morning :-D :-D For some reason I thought it was 1pm, but at 8.30am I realised it was at 9am and I was still in my pjs!!

Done now, had brekkie, so off to brave the supermarket :-( :-(

Enjoy your day everyone and don't work too hard, Maz :-) :-)

Morning all ,sweet potatoes are a sort of buttery parsnip root veg sort of flavour ,easy to cook they are a lot easier to mash than ordinary potatoes ,and are very versatile they roast well too

I'm sorry about that LG :-(

Your weight loss has got to be helping with your joints though! Well done again!

Well I'm off to bed now- Good Night LG. Hope you have a good night's sleep :-) <3

Good Night Nutlodgers :-) <3

No I can't swim either due to other arthritic places. I also lost confidence in the water quite suddenly and for no apparent reason a few years back

JemimaFawr Report 17 Apr 2014 22:31

Gosh! It has been a life changing problem for you LG :-(

What about Swimming?Would that be an option?

I haven't been to a pool for a couple of years now, and when I take the children swimming at the Beach, I am supervising them rather than swimming myself.

I have a lateral thigh trainer but physio said that may do more harm, because of the twisting action.
Walking was our thing, but what with the weather last year and various problems, we haven't been much. I think that if I don't get out more, then I will not be able to do it at all eventually, on the principle of "use it or lose it!"

LaGooner

LaGooner Report 17 Apr 2014 22:23

Precisely what I think. When I lost my 6 stones many years ago I could walk,cycle and do aerobics and circuit. That is all out of the window now as I am registered disabled and walking,(very slowly) is my limit.

Good Night YG- Sleep Well :-) <3

I think that is why I'm losing much slower now LG, as I am not as active as I was. Mind you, I could cut back calorie wise a little bit more, but I find in my case, that that would back-fire on me. If I'm not too hungry, I will cope longer.
It's best for long-term weight loss for each person to tailor their diet to what suits their needs and problems.

I am lucky I suppose in that I do not really crave sweet things. Now savoury there is my weekness :-0 :-0 :-0. I am trying not to use my extra treat points at all so the loss is a little quicker as I am limited when it comes to exercise.
