Right, I am back here again after a long while. I have a few things to write about this time. I am getting skinnier as weeks go by, so far I really am pleased with the Weight Watchers lifestyle, it totally suits me. I do not feel deprived of food, if I crave anything I just have it - I am really committed to tracking everything I eat and that seems to work.
Me and Simon decided that we've had enough with waiting for our Expression of Interest to be drawn out of the pool, it really was a very stressful time having to wait for something to happen and not really having much hope. It was very much like being hung in the mid air. We could not make any plans for life. As much as it is sad to be giving up a dream of living in beautiful New Zealand, I feel that we now can live our lives and plan for the future - possibly "expanding" the family :). So, we are buying a new house! The conveyancers are working on the paperwork so hopefully in the next few weeks we will move to a nicer area and a bigger house. I simply cannot wait. For the last few weeks I have looked at hundreds of websites to inspire me, I have many very good ideas (at least I think they are good ideas :) At last, I hope, we will have a proper dining room in the house - no more eating from the lap whilst watching the telly.
It's been very hot and humid all day today - where's the thunderstorm we were promised?!

I'm back here again

Right, it's been a while since I looked at my own blog here, my DH Simon has suggested to me the other day that I should consider writing all of my thoughts down (I seem to have an awful lot of them lately). So here we go - today might be the day I make a start. I have no guarantee that I will be doing it regularly, but rather when I feel like it.

Firstly, I am so glad my lovely NHS nurse referred me to the Weight Watchers back in February. Since then I lost 7kg (almost 1st so far) and I am absolutely loving the new ProPoints system. It is so much more flexible than the old system. Both methods of weight watching worked well for me over the last couple of years. I will keep going.

Secondly, I feel quite happy at the moment; my mood seems to follow an "ups and downs" pattern, not to the extremes though. That's what being a woman like :) The latest thing which made me happy is... the perfume. It might sound really silly but I have finally found THE ONE brand I love. OMG, it's perfect. It's Amouage.

Well, it is time to stop for now. I have to think of something nice to cook for supper. DH says he likes my cooking (I like to think he really does).

I'll be back soon.
