Monday Weigh In

No loss. No gain.  All in all a pretty poor few months weight loss wise.  Not being well didn't help but at the end of the day they're just excuses. If I put my mind to it I can lose weight. So let's hope April brings better weight loss results.  I am sure it will. This spring like weather does make you think about ordering clothes, holidays etc and I still have the Race for Life to run in May. I will, of course, post pictures to document the mess I look at the end.

Talking of which, yesterday we took a walk to the park en famille.  The eldest had his bike, the other 2 had their nifty scooters.  I ran most of the way trying to keep up with buddy and to stop him meeting his untimely death on the main road.  So it got me thinking of doing this (with appropriate clothing of course) during the Easter Holidays.  However, the children had other plans today.

Buddy was coughing a lot last night - so feel and probably have been awake since 1 am. My daughter (age 6) woke at 5.30 am and promptly threw up - she hasn't managed to keep anything down today and is currently asleep (its 2pm).  My eldest is about to be portaled out (if Skylanders feature in your house you'll know what I'm talking about) to his friends whilst buddy is like the Duracell Bunny - keeps on going!

So not the best start to the Easter holidays - the weather is meant to turn tomorrow and I have been unable to leave the house. I have, however, been able to clean all of it - in between clearing up sick so a pat on the back if you please. 

My friend just asked "how do you manage to clean with the 3 of them?" Its actually quicker in the school hols as you don't have to faff with the school run. Also my children, from an early age, accept that mummy has to do this and I'm not here to purely entertain them.  Its okay for them to be bored. They have enough stuff to keep themselves occupied.  I see no reason for the house to descend into chaos just because its the holidays and besides it'll make me grumpy.  It was clean and tidy now its just clean. I was all finished by 1 pm.  Quick weekly shop tomorrow in the morning and we're all set.

Furthermore, we have play dates this week, library books to take out, hot cross bun making, the film Pirates in 3D (I had to cover my eyes and just hit the pay button - I was bending over at the time!), the step-sister coming for the weekend and London Zoo.  So a little boredom isn't going to kill them - I might if they play up but boredom certainly won't!

Until next week... 


  1. I treat any day I haven't put any weight on as a good day! - and reward myself with a squirt of my favourite perfume. Keep up the good work

    1. Carole I'm liking your style! Thank you for your comments - has given me a bit of a positive lift!

  2. Sounds like you've organised plenty enough for them. Hope everyone health improves for them to enjoy everything.

    1. Me too! Buddy kept us up for 2 hours - never take for granted if your LO sleeps through - mine did at 7 and 10 weeks and I just can't believe I have one that is still waking at 2 years!! x
