weigh in update

Another three pounds

Thirty eight pounds altogether

Two stone, ten pounds

Four pounds more off then the next Pandora Charm .....



Teenager is now on holiday for Easter. He won't go back to school in England until the end of June. As some of you longstanding readers will know, he is off to Melbourne for ten weeks on school exchange.
I am managing my nerves admirably ( on the surface).
He is very excited and can't wait to start his new adventure.
We have brought him up to be confident, independent and travel loving.
Guess what- we got our wish!
So this weekend we are going over to see other half's folks in the North East. Teenager's au revoir tour perhaps before the summer. Teenager will see his cousins. Here is a picture of him with one of them last summer taken by my lovely sister in law D. As you can see they have very similiar colouring. They get on really well. If they are not wrestling, or playing with a ball, they are on the X box. Teenagers eh?
In true masochistic fashion, we are going to watch the Toon Army play Chelsea at St James' Park. We are going to pay to do this. Madness. It will be interesting to see the Chelsea players.... I will see them when I occasionally open my eyes during all the prayers....
Update tomorrow on tonight's official weigh in.... fingers crossed pleased.

a big throw out

The scales ( unofficially) say that it won't be long until I hit the three stone lost mark. All of a sudden a whole new bunch of clothes are far too big, and are therefore heading for the charity recycle pile.

My friend M has kindly given me some clothes that she is now too skinny for and most of them now fit me, including some fab 'white company' jumpers and shirts with cashmere in them ( how fab is that??).

These new clothes and recent pleasant weather inspired me to get rid of/ pack up winter stuff. As soon as I have done that the temperature has crashed. I woke up to frost this morning. The winds have been howling, with a perishing wind chill factor. Why does that happen??

Anyway, I will shiver it out until the spring weather really does settle. I am not going backwards now. It is a great thrill to get into trousers that have never fitted, and tops which only a few months ago would have only been an 'if only'.

My body image is still such that I still gravitate to loose and floaty rather than fitted and tailored... but I am getting there. I can see a big difference. My rings and watch are now loose, and my shoes are down a half size ( you can lose weight off feet??).

I was looking at clothes yesterday by LK Bennett, Karen Millen and Fenn Wright Manson. Gorgeous summer dresses. I am a long way off these yet, but it's no longer the impossible dream.

What does 'Love' mean? A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does 'love' mean?' The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.' Rebecca- age 8

'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.' Billy - age 4

'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.' Karl - age 5

'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.' Chrissy - age 6

'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.' Terri - age 4

'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.' Danny - age 7

'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss' Emily - age 8

'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.' Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,' Nikka - age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.' Noelle - age 7

'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.' Tommy - age 6

'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.' Cindy - age 8

'My mommy loves me more than anybody You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.' C lare - age 6

'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.' Elaine-age 5

'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.' Chris - age 7

'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day' Mary Ann - age 4

'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.' Lauren - age 4

'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image) Karen - age 7

'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.' Jessica - age 8

And the final one --

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, 'Nothing, I just helped him cry'

Priceless- a real laugh out loud..

A man died and went to Heaven.

As he stood in front of the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, 'What are all those clocks?'

St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on earth has a Lie-Clock.

Every time you lie the hands on your clock move.'

'Oh', said the man. 'Whose clock is that?'

'That's Mother Teresa's', replied St. Peter. 'The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.'

'Incredible', said the man. 'And whose clock is that one?'

St. Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abraham told only two lies in his entire life.'

'Where's Gordon Brown's clock?' asked the man.

'Brown's clock is in Jesus's office. He's using it as a ceiling fan.'

This delightful gentleman ( look at those arms) is not in fact a rock star but Carl Hayman who plays for the Newcastle Falcons Rugby team. He won player of the month in February, and I was invited to the match to present him with his trophy and get a picture with him ( and even perhaps a kiss- a girl can hope). I won a competition .....

It's all happening on Friday night and I CAN'T GO. I go back to the Lakes after a whole week working over here in the North East. I just can't come back over to Newcastle again. Too tiring, too costly, logistically problematic and inconvenient because of other commitments. Sigh. Even with my boundless energy and optimisim, I just couldn't make it work this time.
I just hope I get another chance.

To be six again...........

To Be 6 Again...

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror.

Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she'dlike to have for her Birthday.

'I'd like to be six again', she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice bigbowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park.

What a day!He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park.Her head was reeling and her stomachfelt upside down.He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&M's.

What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked,

'Well Dear, what was it like being six again?'Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.

'I meant my dress size, you idiot!!!!'

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong.

a walk in the village

Yesterday I went for a walk in our village ( Bowness on Windermere).
It is five minutes walk from where I live.
As you can see we are very fortunate to live in such a wonderful part of the world.

I never take it for granted.






All in a short walk on an errand. Fabulous eh?
Hope you had a great weekend too.
Happy Mother's Day

the skinny bird

I got weighed today at Lighterlife.
I lost six pounds in ten days.
That means officially two stone and seven pounds.
Thirty five pounds altogether.
I am absolutely thrilled to bits.
Marching on to stone number three.
My wonderful friend A calls me the skinny bird. Not quite yet, but I am getting there.

Friday, 20 March 2009

In reverse

Spurred on by an excellent blood pressure reading and encouraging weigh in by the nurse ( confirmed by the Lighterlife weigh in tomorrow officially I hope), I decided that this beautiful spring day was a good time to start boosting my exercise.

So, after a good swim this morning, I finished the day by doing ten laps of our local running track. Other half came with me. I briskly walked eight and a half laps, and ran the rest. Ok I used the word ran.

It felt like running to me. But it is a slow jog almost in reverse. But I did a lap and a half. I am impressed with myself.

Olympics London 2012 here I come.

A word of warning to all bloggers

I got a message today to tell me that I have infringed copyright and some material on my blog has been removed.


I looked carefully within all the small print to find out what the offending article or articles are. It turns out it was a picture of McDonald's Golden Arches back in September.

The small print in the email told me that if I infringe again my blog will be deleted. Eeks.

So if I vanish, you will all know why.

Like many bloggers I suspect, I use bits and bobs from google images to spice up my blog a little. With a small and bijoux readership I didnt think anyone would get excited about it. But they have.


So from now on I will use my own images to be on the safe side....

Comments folks? Anything like this happen to you?

Tuesday and what's been going on?

Picture- Tim Visser. Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club ( one of my favourite players).

For those long standing and loyal readers, you will be interested ( probably not really) to hear that I am in Consett McDonalds. For some time this was my unofficial office in the North East. I don't come so often now because I don't have so much need for their free wireless connnection for the laptop.

Why is this? Firstly, because so many other venues now offer free WI- FI ( mainly service stations and some coffee shops). Secondly because I have two mobile internet sticks/ wands (what the hell do you call these things?). One with '3' and one with 02. They are much more cost effective than using hotel rates for internet use.

However. The technology is still in its infancy so it's very slow for downloading lots of big documents, and for internet use such as blogging. And, in our lovely cottage in Corbridge we can't get a good signal, and none at all this week. So here I am - in Consett McDonalds. Half seven in the morning, the sun is shining,the staff are cheerful, and I have a big cup of their remarkably good black coffee.

And the connection is quick, easy and free, and the venue is about twenty minutes drive from my first meeting.

Mum has come across to the cottage in Corbridge for two weeks. She is having a good long holiday this time, and my favourite aunt and uncle are coming over for the weekend to see her. I am here Sunday to Wednesday this week, and I am coming back next week Monday to Thursday. Works really well.

Had a fabulous day on Sunday. THE NEWCASTLE FALCONS WON AGAIN. We watched them beat Harlequins 24-16. That's six wins in a row. The players ( both teams) came and had their lunch with us afterwards ( we were on the corporate lunch option- there were lots and lots of us) and watched the England Match ( another success!). We then watched a few of the players in a band they have formed. It was a wonderful day. Pictures later in the week when I get back to my camera and downloading kit.
(Diet watchers- while all around me tucked into roast dinner, puddings and cheese washed down with endless wine, I had black coffee and sparkling water- how saintly is that??).

After a hectic day at work mum and I chilled out in the Metro Centre Marks and Spencer store. It opens til nine, is huge, has a coffee shop. Can't get better really. Bought new top ( success) but the swimming costume I bought didn't fit. Keep on with the calorie counting!! Mind you I am sitting here in a size eighteen Per Una top this morning and it looks great. What an achievement! Happy Lakeland Jo!

Weigh in on Thursday- will let you know!

We are the Champions....

Last night we were part of the team of six for a quiz night at teenager's school.
There were lots of teams: about sixteen I think.
We had a great night. There were picture questions,cryptic anagrams, brain teasers and several rounds of questions with different themes: Science and Nature, Eighties Music, Money, Sport and so on.
The prizes for the winning team were a bottle of tequila, two bottle of ready mixed Margaritas, and a large chocolate easter egg from Thorntons. The theme was a mexican , hence the drinks.
AND WE WON....WE WON.... WE WON.... HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
And I was a champion. While everyone else chowed through nachos, tortillas, chilli and rice, grated cheese and salad, washed down with copious quantities of wine..... I sat with my sparkling water. Yes... not one dodgy calorie passed these lips.
Now I hear you ask... how did you distribute the prizes? We have decided to have a Mexican celebration party when I am eating ( and drinking!!!!!!!!!!) again.....the six of us are going to cook and celebrate together. I can't wait.

"We are the champions, we are the champions,no time for losers, cos we are the champions of the world..............."


A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak.

After mass he asked the monsignor how he had done.

The monsignor replied, 'When I am worried about getting nervous On the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervous, I take a sip.'

So next Sunday he took the monsignor's advice.At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink.

He proceeded to talk up a storm.Upon his return to his office after the mass, he found the following note on the door:

1) Sip the vodka, don't gulp.

2) There are 10 commandments, not 12.

3) There are 12 disciples, not 10.

4) Jesus was consecrated, not constipated.

5) Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass.

6) We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C.

7) The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior and the spooky

8) David slew Goliath, he did not kick the sh*t out of him.

9) When David was hit by a rock and was knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass.

10)We do not refer to the cross as the 'Big T.'

11)When Jesus broke the bread at the last supper he said, 'take this and eat it for it is my body.' He did not say ' Eat me'

12)The Virgin Mary is not called ' Mary with the Cherry,.

13)The recommended grace before a meal is not: Rub-A-Dub-Dub thanks for the grub, Yeah God.

14)Next Sunday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St.Peter's not a peter pulling contest at St. Taffy's.

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters who had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?

First Time Sex ( hilarious)

Thanks to Dyan for this one!

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet, and have dinner with her parents.

Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time.

The boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms.

He tells the pharmacist it's his first time and the pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour.

He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex.

At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he'd liketo buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack.

The boy insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.

That night, the boy shows up at the girl's parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door. 'Oh, I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!'

The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated.

The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head.

A minute passes, and another 2.

The boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down. 10 minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy.

Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, 'I had no idea you were this religious.'

The boy turns, and whispers back, 'And I had no idea your father was a pharmacist'.

A brilliant win. Well done Falcons!

The Falcons were awesome today. They beat Sale Sharks 25-32. It was a brillant game.
Mum and I managed to get on the tv too. A good shot of us chatting and me clapping and shouting. Fame at last.
I cheered all the way through. It was so exciting. They played really well.
Five wins in a row and now eighth in the table. Here is a picture of teenager with scrum half Mickey Young. He is a great player and one to watch out for.
Well done Steve Bates and all the team. Looking forward to seeing you win against Harlequins next week.


say no more! Gentlemen- defend yourselves?

Sale Sharks versus Newcastle Falcons

We are going to see the match tomorrow. I can't wait. I am really excited.

I hope they win.

It's on the tv- watch if you can. I will wave at you all.



Teenager has been playing football today. It was not the team's finest hour. Everyone tried hard on both sides.

Infuriating though was the referee's behaviour. He was supplied by the other team's school. God help them. He was dire.

Example. Their goalkeeper sauntered off the pitch. He said he was cold. He left their goal wide open. Referee's decision. Give him a better position on the team, and put someone else in goal.

I was aghast.

A small issue of pandering to his whim, and rewarding his discourteous behaviour with what he wanted all along? An example to the other players on the team? If you don't like what's happening just walk off. That way you get what you want.


He missed one of the player's kicking someone ( deliberately). When remonstrated with, his response was: ' I didn't see it. I was busy watching the goalkeeper walk off the pitch'.

He swore at a player. He screamed at another player for pushing ( when he hadn't done anything). Lost control of the game, and blew the whistle ten minutes early.

Bored men in Tesco supermarket

This letter was actually sent by Tesco's Head Office to a customer in Oxford:

Dear Mrs. Murray, Whilst we would like to thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco Loyalty Card, the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering banning you and your family from shopping with us, unless your husband stops his antics. Below is a list of his actions over the past few months all verified by our surveillance cameras:

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's trolleys when they weren't looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to feminine products aisle.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official tone, 'Code 3' in housewares..... and watched what happened..

5. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

6. September 15: Set up a tent in the outdoor clothing department and told shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring sausages and a Calor gas stove.

7. September 23: When the Deputy Manager asked if she could helphim, he began to cry and asked, 'Why can't you people just leave mealone?'

8. October 4: Looked right into the security camera; used it as a mirror, picked his nose, and ate it.

9. October 10: While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives in the Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the antidepressants were.

10. November 3: Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming the Mission Impossible' theme.

11.November 6: In the kitchenware aisle, practised the 'Madonna look' using different size funnels.

12. November 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed,yelled 'PICK ME!' 'PICK ME!'

13. November 21: When an announcement came over the loudspeaker, assumed the foetal position and screamed 'NO! NO! It's those voices again.'

And last, but not least:

14. November 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a while; then yelled, very loudly, 'There is no toilet paper in here.'

Eve's side of the story

After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve.

"So, how is everything going?" inquired God.

"It is all so beautiful, God," she replied.
"The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, the smells, the sights, everything is wonderful, but I have just one problem. It's these breasts you have given me. The middle one pushes the other two out and I am constantly knocking them with my arms, catching them on branches and snagging them on bushes. They're a real pain."

And Eve went on to tell God that since many other parts of her body came in pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc.

She felt that having only two breasts might leave her body more "symmetrically balanced".

"That's a fair point," replied God, "But it was my first shot at this, you know. I gave the animals six breasts, so I figured that you needed only half of those, but I see that you are right. I will fix it up right away."

And God reached down, removed the middle breast and tossed it into the bushes.Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden of Eden.

"Well, Eve, how is my favorite creation?" "Just fantastic," she replied, "But for one oversight. You see, all the animals are paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone. "

God thought for a moment and said, "You know, Eve, you are right. How could I have overlooked this? You do need a mate and I will immediately create a man from a part of you.

Let's see....where did I put that useless tit?"

Now doesn't THAT make more sense than all that crap about the rib?

Message to Tismee

Are you going to be brave enough/ mad enough to watch the NUFC v Man utd match tonight? Is it televised or are bloodsports still illegal on screen?

weight loss update

Hi folks
It's a busy buzzy week but I have got a spare moment to update you on last night's weigh in.....THREE POUNDS OFF!

So- that's twenty seven pounds off, and therefore one pound off the glorious two stone mark.
To celebrate mum bought me some new fab digital scales- no I have no excuse to stray.

So, onwards to next week and another few pounds I hope.

Off to University now to do Office 2007 Powerpoint training and to return some library books.
Have been working in the new offices today- they are wonderful!

(PS- car update. After four weeks I got it back. The next day it broke down again. Reason- the warranty company would not pay to get the part replaced recommended by the engineer. They said they wouldnt pay the price, and wanted a patch up job to see if that would suffice. Needless to say I am not amused. Watch this space!

It was dire

We lost one- nil.
It was dire.
Enough said.
