|Diary of Wimpy Kid Costume|
So, in the morning I was able to go into the children's classrooms and read together. This was lovely, although I left fairly shortly in my son's year (year 5) as you could hear a pin drop! It was only for 30 minutes but was a nice thing to do. They then spent time in different classrooms through out the day doing various activities and then finished off with a book assembly with prize giving for the best costumes and.... tah dah both of them won a prize! My daughter went as puss in boots and we managed to gather enough bits and pieces for a rather decent costume. Naturally they both won a book.
In other news, I completed my Wii Dance 3 today with wrist weights and 100 skips of my skipping rope. I'm going to aim for increases during next week of the 100 skips. I have been offered the chance of reviewing a VLCD - that stands for very low calorie diet (600 cals). Now that sounds like when you're really ill and can't eat anything, you lose weight and then once you're back to normal you put it all back on. What do you think? My first thoughts were this sounds horrendous however it would make an interesting blog post, its a freebie and I am curious to know what it feels like. It also makes me very fearful that it will totally mess up my metabolism and that it is very bad for you. Its not something I've ever done before or likely to try again. I've never done the Cambridge diet, soup, Atkins, low carb etc etc. They are offering my readers a competition giveaway of 2 weeks of the VLCD. Let me know your views.
My sister Sharon has done a great blog post on her half marathon preparations which I will post this shortly.
That's all for now folks!
