Snow filled hell hole, I mean wonderland!

We're still stuck in the snow hole, all 4 of us in one house, I can't begin to tell you how much I'm enjoying it, I'm really really really hoping for a thaw.

So Dad and Janis are not coming, Dad was coming from Bournemouth which is on the South coast (the English riviera allegedly) and Janis was flying from Glasgow, she is completely snowed in so its not happening, I'm really sad about it, I really like seeing them and the kids love Janis. Not sure that we'll get to see them before Christmas now.

I do have good news though, the scale told me I was 14st 12lbs (208 lbs) today! I've never ever got to this weight before, only when I climbed past it as a teen I guess. I've lost a total of 45 pounds and have 40 pounds to go until I get to my goal weight of 12 stone (168 lbs) I'm very very happy.
I am going to challenge myself to be in Onederland for Christmas, I have 9 lbs to go, and there is 3 weeks until Christmas so I need to loose 3 pounds a week, it's doable if I leave the junk alone, I'm hoping that this will inspire me to make good choices.

My poor car is still stuck goodness knows where on a hill, I worried that it will become a bit of a target and it will be a real state when I get it back. Paul was looking on the internet last night for 4wd cars, I was looking at Nissans and Fords, not Paul, he was looking at Mercedes, Porche's and BMW's, pre owned 4wd's in these makes aren't nearly as expensive as I would have guessed at, I guess that the running costs and insurance is the killer with them, fuel in the UK is ridiculous prices. Part of me quite fancies being the stereotypical private school mum, being very skinny in an enormous flash car, I could do that! But my sensible side says no.
Thank you Justawallflower for your kind offer, I do quite like the Ford Kuga (do you have them in the US?) but as we're in the UK we probably wouldn't be able to use your discount, you are lovely to offer.

Think that I'm going to read blogs and then do a little ebay shopping, UK size 2o is getting a bit big now, I'm going to look for some UK 18's!
Have a lovely day xx
