Project 366 week 10


Mothers Day, not something we go in for in a big way. I think it is lovely when you have young children who make you a card and a present, but not into the hype and commercialism. But have to say I love the bunches of flowers I got from the older two girls.

One from Moonpig one from Bunches


Took Bob to gymnastics but somebody there before hand had hand, foot and mouth disease, and although the staff were trying their best to clean before our class went in I was taking no risks with him having cracks on his hands from his eczema and explained to him why we were not staying and brought him home. So instead of a walk I went and did an exercise class with youtube. Progressed now onto HiiT workouts. I have to say them along with the Thinking Slimmer are really working. For the first time in over twenty years I weight less than 16 stone, not much less but less is better than more in this case. I have lost twelve pounds since I started this nine weeks ago, so really pleased with that.I swithered over embarrassing myself by sharing but am pleased with this so here it is.

too much but improving


Been doing some holiday relief cover this week at a complex. I admire this spread of crocuses ( croci?) every year. They are looking very Spring like.

Popped into daughters on the way home. Conveniently Spud was starting to stir, so of course I had to pick her up. When ever she is up Dinky just wants to "duddle baby sister" so baby sister got a duddle. Daughter has put a step next to the pram so the twins can climb up and look in and they love standing watching her.

Was a lovely afternoon so we went for a wander and picked up a cache while we were out. There was snow on the peaks of Arran with the ship stopped in front.

SIL starts his new job today and so left home at 6am. As daughter cannot lift the twins just yet and Fifi was away swimming then I was down for 7.30 am to do breakfast and get them dressed. Love how when I walked into their bedroom their wee faces light up and they shout my name over and over.  Went back down to do bath and bedtime and a bit of housework. Other grandparents are doing the weekend and DD3 doing Monday, so I am not back now till Tuesday.

This is the first picture on the blanket, have to say I am quite pleased with how it has turned out. Just got to pull out the waste canvas now. This owl is in the top right corner, going to balance it up with a pink one bottom left.

  6. Well done on the weight loss, that is so good. I desperately need to start exercising. I love the duddling little sister, that's just so adorable!

  7. Drinking water from the bath is fun! Baby Spud is super cute, and what a gorgeous field of crocuses. Love your bouquets too, very pretty.

  8. What a busy time, Mothers Day, walking and looking after the kiddies.

  9. Well done on the weight loss Elaine, the crocus/croci are stunning. Do all children say 'duddle?' mine certainly did

  10. very well done on the weight loss and well done for sharing it because thats a massive thing to share with us (and the world!). Small steps are much better than large ones, because the weight will stay off longer and it is a better way all round to lose weight.
    love the photo of the baby dude - sooo cute. xx
