I actually went away for the weekend

and I didn't gain weight!

Only to the inlaws, not to anywhere exciting! Paul's best friend was 40 and his parents threw a lunch for him, we were the surprise guests, was nice to see them and catch up.

I unexpectedly got my period whilst we were away and must admit to inhaling some lindt chocolate on the way home, not an enormous amount but enough to make me feel guilty and ensure that I went to the gym when I got home.

Today the scale said 14st 2lbs (198 lbs) which I'm delighted with.

On a totally unrelated note, I've just found out that my mad mother in law has bought Isobel a guitar for Christmas, this is my 6 year old, marvelous. I looked in to music lessons for her a short while ago as she would like to learn to play the piano and it will cost in excess of £100 a month which after 2 lots of school fee's we just can't afford. From about the 26th of December we will receive a daily phone call asking if I've arranged bloody guitar lessons yet, they drive me insane.



  1. That is awesome! I think it is so hard to make good choices when you are outside your routine. Way to go!

  2. Excellent news on keeping the weight off! And thanks for the tip-off about Reeses at Sainsburys!
    Arthur has a toy guitar from ELC which he's mad about, but at least we've not got to the music lesson stage...yet...

  3. Congrats on not gaining after being away :o) that is something to celebrate no matter where you went.

    On your other news; I thought there was some law about not being allowed to give someone elses children musical instruments :p or is that a law they just haven't gotten around to passing yet?!?

  4. Huge victory going away and not gaining weight. I always seem to put on a pound or two if I go ANYWHERE.
