Urgh, early morning, George woke me at 6 and I went to sleep at 1am, today isn't going to be nice! For some reason, as I get older I just can't sleep past 6am, have no idea why, its very frustrating.

Hope that everyone is well, I went out last night for my birthday dinner with 4 girlfriends, couldn't help but think how nice it would have been to have some lovely bandsters there too! Why do you all have to live thousands of miles away?
Only 2 of the group know about my band, I ate really well, salad with blue cheese, prawns and bacon for main followed by the most divine Eton mess. Got some fabulous presents, my favourite was a Cath Kidston iphone cover, its just lovely.
My friend Alyson who I've not seen for about 2 months kept telling me over and over how great I looked which is very flattering, Sarah who I see a lot but not for at least a week was telling me how my face looked much smaller and streamlined which was lovely to hear! I looked amazing in the large mirror in the bathroom, I even tried to take you a photo as I know that you enjoy my bathroom pics! But the flash spoiled it. I wonder if it was one of the mirrors that slimmed you down? I'm sure I don't normally look like that.

Have a bit of a sad NSV, I have some large sunglasses which are prescription, they took me ages to find and were very expensive, my face must have shrunk as every time I put my head down they fall off! I've tried tightening them but it doesn't seem to help.

Had my hair cut yesterday, George has asked me every day for almost a month if I'm having my hair cut, I started to get really paranoid so booked one! I really like it, will find a public loo and try and share it with you all!

Have a great Sunday everyone xx


  1. You so need to get yourself a full length mirror at home :)

    and I will be over the pond in a few short months :)

    So far we will for sure be in London on July 8th and might stay over for a few days and/or again sometime before August 8. Wales is only two hours by train too so I could totally pop down for the day for a meet up.


  2. I would love to see a picture. It sounds like you are doing an amazing job at sticking with it. You will find sunglasses you love even more than the ones that are too big:) I am glad you had a wonderful birthday!

  3. What a lovely birthday dinner with the gals. Don't write off those glasses yet. Take them to a glasses fitter and see if they can help. I have very pricey perscription ones too and had to get the adjust once they put the heavy lenses in!

  4. Sounds like a great dinner. I agree with Amanda take the glasses in for an adjustment - they should be able to help.
    I wish we were all closer too.

  5. Sounds like it was a fun time! I hope getting the glasses fit helps and that you'll be able to meet up with Tina when she's over there!

  6. I'm coming to London for the Olympics! It is a long way off, but we could totally meet up. The birthday party sounds super fun!

  7. Great NSVs! Can't wait to see pics!

  8. Too funny about the glasses getting too big. You should go back to where you got them and see if they can somehow resize them since they cost a bundle. Glad you had a nice birthday. Mines tomorrow (or today where you are-15th).
