What an achievement πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„πŸ˜‰πŸ’•

I just hit another milestone on the blog.


Since starting the blog I’ve had a lot of milestones. But this one is huge. 100,000 visitors, that’s how many people have visited this blog since it started.


I can’t quite believe it. It’s amazing, you are also amazing, thank you to everyone who visited, each and everyone of you are special to me.


I’m so happy to have reached 100,000 visitors. It’s a huge achievement. I couldn’t of done it without all of you behind me so thank you, thank you all so so much.


I got nominated for volunteer of the year!

so I found out yesterday that my supervisor nominated me for volunteer of the year. Our local volunteer centre holds a competition each year and crowns the volunteer of the year and the organisation that they volunteer for gets recognition and I think they also get some money and then the person who wins gets a trophy and a certificate and there is a day out at a posh hotel and food and all that sorta thing.
I would so love to win! But just being nominated is awesome too! Just the fact that she thinks I am worthy of the volunteer of the year is huge to me!
I will keep you all posted! I am not sure when the competition is over and when the winner will be announced but I think its going to be soon!
fingers crossed but even if I dont win I am so thankful to just be nominated!

Healing words of the day!

Conquering any difficulty always gives one a secret joy, for it means pushing back a boundary-line and adding to one’s liberty.
Henri-FrΓ©dΓ©ric Amiel

I definitely think if we conquer our difficulties, and face our fears, life will become much nicer.
Plus the sense of achievement we will feel will be awesome too!
Go out and live your life, face your fears, and conquer them!

Slight weight loss this week

Only a small weight loss this week. Half a pound. Still. I’m happy with that. Half a pound is better than not losing anything at all. And you cant lose a lot every single week. So yeah, am totally happy with that.
I also got slimmer of the week again. I shared that achievement with two others in the group so we shared the basket of food between the 3 of us. I got a certificate and a little bit of bling for the back of my book. I was so chuffed.
I am now down 1 stone 8 and a half pounds, for my US readers that is 22.5 pounds. Yay πŸ˜€ so thrilled.
5 and a half pounds to go to make it to two stone!
I can do it! I know I can!

time for tea

so we decided tonight to go downstairs to have a cup of tea. we have the facilities to make it in the apartment, but well, we dont take the time to really mix with others here in abode, so we decided to take the plunge tonight and go downstairs.
it went well. we sat and chatted with four of the other residents. we drank our tea and we were mostly ok. a little bit of anxiety creeped in but we forced ourselves to stay there for 30 minutes.
i call that a win. i’m happy it went well. maybe that will give us an incentive to go down more often.
