What are your current obsessions?
My weight, my fitness, the WII Fit, the business, getting teenager's room decorated.
Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
Since I have lost a lot of weight this changes more that it used to as I have lots of new clothes. It is probably a gorgeous White Company cami and top that a friend ( who has lost tons of weight) gave me. Silver grey, has cashmere in it, and feels gorgeous. I had it on today. I also have myriad light floaty cardigans which go with just about anything which I wear loads too.
Last thing you bought?
A batter re-charger for the WII fit.
What are you listening to?
At the moment Man Utd versus Arsenal in the Champions League. Other half is glued.

Who or what can make you laugh until you are weak?
It takes a lot to really make me laugh. I am very cheerful anyway and see humour in lots of things every day. Some of the best laughs I have ever had were in hospital -gallows humour I suppose, but we had some great times.
My mum and I can get really silly if we are in the mood, and can laugh for hours. We have lots of 'in jokes'.
