The Big Freeze

2nd handmade present of the year delivered and successfully accepted. My beaded note book went down a treat. I must be honest, it really was lovely.

So the usual suspects had a night out in Cardiff last night and what a good night it was. The club, however, left a bit to be desired. It's a new build, so you'd expect fairly decent standards, but it was SOOO cold in there, even when we left for the night! Of course, sods law dictated that I just took a dress jacket rather than a warm one.

I was glad to be wearing that jacket though, and those trousers. I must be honest I feel like I've cheated and got new clothes as I haven't been able to fit into half of my wardrobe for over a year. SO now I feel like I've got a new set of clothes. But enough weight loss gloating.

In discussions with the husband this afternoon we've established that clearing a patch of land big enough for me to have my veg patch should be relatively easy, so veggie patch it is. Right now, this is kind of my focus as I'm "between projects". Going to do a bit of gardening research tonight I think. And quite a bit of lying down to get over my "hang over" and dancing injuries!


  1. I estimate about 90% of the clothes and shoes in my wardrobe are waiting patiently for me to lose a bit off my tummy, they will be back in fashion again soon.
    Common sense tells me that it would be a good idea to cut back on food, lose weight and make use of my treasured outfits whilst saving money and looking slimmer and smarter in the process.
    Easier said than done I say! Never before have I held on to so much blubber (except between the sheets but that's another story bless him).
    Fat is just another side effect of advancing years,eyes first, then teeth then waistline(not always in that order). It really doesn't help that an element of our "economy drive" involves eating the versatile potato more regularly, which is usually in my chief cooks favourite form as piles of cheesy mashed potato.
    Lose weight while you are young my dear it sticks like s**t to a blanket past 45. Well done

  2. I love you Jen! You are amazing, but how the hell would you know? You're only 28 :)

  3. Lol...Shhh special birthday coming up this year :)
