August Break: Reflection

An oldie from about three years ago.  It's strange to see myself with such dark hair now that I have been growing out my grey for almost a year. And I should have cleaned that mirror before I took the photo! 

August Break: Three

My minuscule vegetable garden. A cucumber, a pepper and a chilli pepper.

That was the weekend

:: It was cooler this weekend than it has been for a while. Still too hot for me, but I'm grateful for small mercies. 

:: At our Slimming World class on Saturday the consultants cooked a healthy breakfast for around fifty of us. The food was really nice and it was a fun morning, with lots of laughs. We're doing well with the weight loss - Philip's lost 9lb and I've lost 11.5. Clothes are starting to be loose and Philip's had to take off his wedding ring for fear of losing it. He'll have it re sized once he achieves a level of svelteness that he's happy with!

:: On Saturday my Coke persona was 'Gorgeous', which Philip chose for me.(He got stuck with 'Angela').  

:: On both weekend afternoons we went driving around the countryside. We went to Kent on Saturday, and Sunday we drove down to Leigh-on-Sea, our maybe-one-day home town. 

:: I'm still on my self-imposed break from the Boring Orange Cardigan, and enjoying knitting some simple dishcloths. 

Sharing my weekend with Karen and others

August Break Day 1: Lunch

What to do when you're dieting and your Auntie buys your favourite toffee-with-bits-of-fudge ice cream in, especially for you? 

This month I am joining Susannah and many others for the August Break
