From the other side! As Adele would sing. And yes I did purchase it although my husband once said "how many sad songs can a fat girl sing?" which isn't very nice but he's not a fan. I like Adele (more her than her music) and so does my daughter - she loves playing it on her new CD/Ipod docking station that we got her for Christmas. I like the more up beat track on the new album - water under the bridge. I've gone off onto a massive tangent as the other side I wanted to refer to was, of course, 2016.

How was it for you? Christmas and what not. We had a very enjoyable family break. Long, lazy lie-ins. We got up about 10.15 most days. My daughter was a tad earlier but still a respectable 9.15 am. I loved the lazy days and even the mess. Although I was still very busy leading up to Xmas - as most mums are - all the school plays, the gifts for the teachers, the wrapping oh lordy the wrapping! The final presents and trying to find the presents you hid. Every year I hide something in a safe place and without fail every year they never re-appear.  I did feel totally relaxed on the 27th when we visited my parents. I decided to plonk myself down only to get up for feeding and drinking times. We even managed a trip to the Science Museum which the kids loved. Although Buddy was getting tired after about 3 hours and my daughter was getting slightly bored at that point. There is so much to see - I could have happily stayed a few more hours. There's so much interaction and who'd have thought I'm a bit of an astronaut geek. I loved their cosmonauts exhibition. The only downside to the museum was that it was so hot in there.

Now as a bit of a London day out with the kids semi-pro - I always insist on light coats i.e light raincoats and layers no matter how cold it is out there. The trains, tubes, buses etc get very hot and there's nothing worse than the kids moaning about it.  But even with my semi-pro rules with raincoats off and only tops it was still too hot.  I came home with an awful migraine and took myself to bed for a few hours. Or maybe it was just the excitement of it all! Anyhow, I seemed to be much better after my dinner and washing up had been done for me.

Now turning to the important matter of weight.  I have to say I have been mighty impressed with myself up to recently on my dedication to my PIYO workouts. As you can see from above,  But now since the kids have gone back to school - I'm 4 workouts behind. I even took my youngest two to breakfast club this morning so that I could gain an extra hour. Instead, I did a mass clean and ended up not having time!

But asides from that I am now on week 6 of the 8 week programme and I really love it.  I had to miss 2 workouts from being sick and 2 through no time.  Having said this, I still put on 7lbs over Christmas.

All the goodies are more or less gone, I'm back in the zone and here's to cracking it in 2016!

See you shortly
