Coffee~Break

I’m not really sure that I can justify this as a ‘coffee break’ as I haven’t really achieved much so far this morning! I have however dropped the teenage delight off at school, bleached the toilet and wandered aimlessly around Tesco mainly getting things that weren’t on my list~although in my defence I left said list at home on the table oops!
That said it was very nice and as it’s my day off that’s what counts today I say.

I do hope that you are enjoying this sunny Monday~don’t forget for more daily updates you can also follow me here.❤x

Day off?!

Today is my day off if there really is such a thing. I started early with the sole intention of going into one shop to take something back, having parked just outside town I was making my way quite happily when I realised I had left the one bag I needed in the car. So I headed back to the car to collect it.

Next I arrive at the shop to be informed it can’t be returned in store~marvellous!

Having congratulated myself on parking just outside out of town which only cost me 50p I decided that a trip to Costa could of course be justified, I’m yet to justify nipping into Greggs too but If you give me time I’m sure I’ll find a reason why an apple Danish for breakfast was necessary!

By the time I got home there was washing to sort and food shopping to do.

I’ve been put on an almost total coffee ban by my loved ones and have survived the day on only two cups which I feel is pretty impressive.

That said it’s been a nice sunny day and although I am on a mission to try and lose my tan lines and get some colour on my legs I’ve spent the day in jeans so whilst the rest of my body continues to tan, my legs are super white and quite frankly I look like some kind of zebra with odd stripes hee hee.

Still it’s only Monday so with a bit of luck if the weather continues to be nice I might just get them to look slightly off white before I have to wear a dress in a few weeks time.

Hoping you’ve all had a happy Monday.❤x

Late Night

Last night I couldn’t sleep~my night went something like this~

*Wrote my shopping list and planned all next weeks meals.

*Looked at holidays.

*Checked the bank approximately 3 times in case some extra money magically appeared in between such times (sadly it didn’t!)

*Sold a wardrobe on eBay.

All whilst pretending that the kids school uniform didn’t need ironing and basically hoping that any wrinkles would disappear by morning.

Finally at 12.15am I decided I really should at least get into bed, I decided to catch up on ‘call the midwife’, fell asleep part way through and woke up feeling like I was in a sauna because I forgot to turn the heating down.

Needless to say I’m tired and feeling slightly grumpy. Despite it being my day off I’ve got a list as long as my arm to make my way through.

Fortunately my lovely Mum sent us home with some cakes yesterday, well I say us~technically they were meant to be for the kids lunch boxes but I’ve decided to ‘liberate’a few and shall have them with my countless cups of coffee later.

Happy Monday everyone.❤️x

Love yourself

It’s no secret that I am on a forever diet promising myself I’ll be good tomorrow or start again on Monday.

Generally these days never come and I end up eating the wrong things and then wishing I hadn’t!

I’ve started walking to work each day and using my Fitbit more which is helping to motivate me~now if someone could motivate me to stop eating chocolate aswell that would be marvellous!

This last week or so I’ve been having a huge clear out and de~clutter at home which is much needed.

Whilst doing so I have come across old photographs and apart from being shocked at how young I looked back then a few other things have caught my attention, mainly the way I looked over the years. In the photos I can see how I was slimmer at times and also bigger too. I looked at those photos and thought wow I wish I looked like that now and also oh my goodness I’m glad I don’t look like that now.

So this morning as I was getting dressed I stopped and paused, usually I avoid the mirror like the plague but today I looked and thought to myself ‘do you know what? This body has had 3 babies inside it, (sadly only delivered 2)

It’s had three major operations over the course of a one year period, and dealt with the inevitable ups and downs of life’.

It may not be perfect to look at but I’m healthy and I’m happy.

I know what I need to eat and what I need to do to lose that weight and tone up and I like to think that one day I will find myself more at ease with my body.

But for now~I’ll try and make the most of what I’ve got after all it’s not so bad, and it deserves looking after, however I can’t promise to stop eating chocolate or of course my favourite cherry bakewells, I’ll try and give it more water and less coffee well ok lets be realistic not less coffee but maybe the same amount of water to keep things balanced!

Happy Friday everyone.❤️x
