Nite Fly

I have sat down a little in between jobs so definitely not overdone it. I don't want to risk getting the pain back too soon ;-) :-D :-D

Evening LG.

It has been really lovely today, hasn't it. I even managed to do a bit of edging round the borders when I got home from work!

How is your knee today? I hope you haven't been overdoing it in the gsrden!


LaGooner Report 14 Apr 2014 20:37

Good evening all, I have been out in the garden all afternoon and only came in a little while ago. Been in the shower and now chilling out.

Evening YG - so glad someone agrees about grow-your own. Can't say I've heard of Tomkin variety, although it does sound as if it might be the size of a cherry tomato.

The weather was so good we sat outside the pub for our 3 hour chatting session - I think my face has caught the sun!!!!! It was good to spend social time with someone outside the family. As much as we get on, sometimes there isn't anything to say with OH.

Evening everyone.

DET, I hope you enjoyed lunch with your friend. It would make a lovely change for you. I agree with you about buying veg and salad items being cheaper in the long run, but it is nice to sit down to a plateful of home grown.

I have taken a real liking to 'Tomkin' tomatoes. They are only available at As**, and as yet I haven't found any young plants or seeds, so will just have to keep buying them when they are in season.

Maz. I am on my way for sausage and mash :-D :-D

Jen, I hope your daughter and gds are on the mend now. It is awful having a sickness bug :-( :-(

afternoon all ,Lunch is served ,garden is started and looks a lot better the grass needs feeding at some point or even reseeding after the weather this year there is more moss than grass really but at least its green

Morning all -

Maz - Your meal must have been such a disappointment after previous good experiences. One would have thought they'd have had the proper stuff as the weekend must be one of their more popular times.

Jem - it is difficult loosening the apron strings, isn't it? Even though you've been there before, each child is different. Our first 2 were quite co-operative. The youngest. Well. Why do you think that she is known on here as Problem Child???? She didn't cause too many problems, but used to really push the boundaries. One advantage of not having good evening transport links is that she relied on us for lifts!!
Hope your family get over their bug soon. Is it the Norovirus? PC caught that from work a couple of years ago. Nasty it was.

LG - hope you didn't over do things yesterday. Now you can move about will less/no pain, the additional gentle exercise might help with the weight loss. How about swimming?

YG - how's the black disc now? It must have been both irritating and worrying.

I spent an hour in the garden yesterday, contributing to OH's war on the daisys. I've also started off some runner beans which are currently on the windowsill. This year I've decided to buy tomato plants instead of growing them from seed. We might get a couple of patio ones and keep them at the front where they are in full sun. It's probably more cost efficient to buy from the supermarket, but there is a sense of achievement by growing your own.

Today I'm a ladee wot lunches, with an old school friend down the local pub. If it weren't for that, we'd be queuing up at Maz'!

Have a good day

Well as I always say, a little bit of what you fancy does you good ;-) :-D :-D :-D :-D


JemimaFawr Report 13 Apr 2014 19:33

Being able to fit the diet into your life, being sensible- having a bit of what you fancy on a regular basis, and not trying to "beat the diet" is the key to success! People who crash diet, or go on extreme diets, usually don't manage,in the long term, to sustain their weight loss.


LaGooner Report 13 Apr 2014 19:28

And mine Jem. I have tried some silly diets in my time and only ww has been the one I have succeeded with


JemimaFawr Report 13 Apr 2014 19:25

Totally agree LG :-)

Especially don't agree with high protein diets- but I do realise that that is just my opinion.


LaGooner Report 13 Apr 2014 19:05

It is just a case of sensible eating not starving yourself to death or silly colour days


JemimaFawr Report 13 Apr 2014 19:02

Well done LG :-) :-)

WW is good. I didn't agree with the diet of another famous slimmimg club, which in my opinion, was not good for you (at least years ago anyway- may have changed it now!)


LaGooner Report 13 Apr 2014 18:59

I am finding the new WW diet soooooooooo easy. I think I have lost about another 2 pounds this week but we will see Tuesday.

Me norty,, NEVER ;-) :-D :-D :-D I am a good girl :-0


YG Report 13 Apr 2014 18:56

:-D :-D :-D Jem. I know LG can be a naughty girl sometimes, but she wouldn't do that to her OH :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

Well done, LG with the walking. Keep on that diet too and we won't know you soon :-) :-)


LaGooner Report 13 Apr 2014 18:56

Well he is hot stuff Jem. Well in my eyes at least ;-) :-D :-D :-D
