Hello 2016

Hello again, jeez it's been a while! Thought I might start the old blog up again for old times sake, with any luck I might just keep it going again LOL Expect photos, Slimming World (yup, back there again), rants, scrapbooking stuff and anything else that might crop into my head. Happy New Year ❤️

.....after staying the same at fat club last week i upped the super free, ate lots of veg based meals and walked for miles and am chuffed to bits with a 6lb weight loss this week :-) so another half a pound and i've lost 2 stone in 10 weeks :-) has made me more determined to stay on track while on holiday in a couple of weeks time, no alcohol and lots of walking :-)

just a few photos!

from my visits to the Washington Wetland Centre over the passed few weeks

Having lots of fun and taking loads of photos

talking to lots of nice people

and getting to know the names of some of the birds i'm seeing

so far it's rained every day i've been so i'm looking forward to seeing the place in the sunshine

it's also jolly good exercise as i do quite a bit of walking

so it's all helping with the weight loss malarkey

and i'm sleeping a lot better due to the copious amounts of fresh air

so it's all good :-)

Lots to tell this week!

I had a couple of days off work this week and determined not to waste it i took myself off out every single day, saturday i headed to Craster and was very proud of myself for walking at least three miles, to Dunstanburgh castle and back, around the castle and around Craster itself :-) treat myself to a kipper for lunch and a crab for tea, yum yum! Sunday i headed off to the wetland centre in Washington. Have to admit i was very dubious at first as it appeared to be in the middle of a trading estate, but once inside it's a proper little gem. Did lots more walking and feeding the birdies and spending time in the hides watching even more birdies. Had such a good time i decided to become a member and also got a couple of birdie books so i can start to identify said birdies LOL Monday i headed off to the roman army museum near Greenhead, followed by Vindolanda and fruit picking in Corbridge. It was a dreadful day weather wise but the further west i got the brighter the weather became, the only rain i saw was at Corbridge and meant i couldn't go fruit picking. Over the moon to have lost another two pounds this week, must have been all the walking i did cos i've had lunch out every day of my mini break. The last day of my time off i headed off to alnwick to do the garden and to go to barter books. Loved the poison garden tour and the serpentine garden and enjoyed a sausage sarnie in the sunshine before heading off to barter books. Here i discovered i'm a book snob and only like new books LOL these were all grubby and dirty so i came home with nothing!

Another week

Week 2

And i lost four pounds :-) very happy as that means i've lost a stone and half a pound in two weeks :-) i know it will slow down now but i'm hoping that i can manage two pounds a week so i'll be back to my 7 stone total by christmas :-)
