Weight loss accomplishment and new clothes

so yesterday when I was going to get my new phone, i decided that I’d bring a coat with me. I decided to try on my jeans jacket, I hadnt worn it in months, before, when I wore it I couldnt tie it because I was too fat and it wouldnt tie on me.
Yesterday though, I was able to comfortably tie it, it fit perfectly and I even had a little breathing room in it. I was so excited! I couldnt believe it! Thats how I can really tell I’ve lost weight now! Clothes that used to not fit, now fit! Yay!
After shopping for my phone, I went to try on some new clothes. I wanted to get something to wear for wednesday nights awards ceremony. I went first to evan’s store, its a plus size clothing store but they do regular sizes too. I couldnt find what I wanted in there, even though I tried on a few tops. None of them fit the way I liked.
So off we went to new look, another clothing store. I tried on a few more tops while in there and a jeans too. A white jeans. The jeans fit but it was still a little tight, so I decided to wait a few more months before I’ll start wearing jeans again. Instead I’ll wear leggings on wednesday night, a white leggings, I did get a nice dress top, one that comes off the shoulder.
So I am very happy. I tried some shoes too but none of the pairs I tried fit me comfortably so I will just wear a pair that I own already. I have really broad feet so I find it hard to buy shoes at the best of times and normally I have to buy really expensive shoes to get a pair that fit me right.
It was a good shopping trip though. I’m happy with the top I bought. I will look lovely for the award ceremony on wednesday night, and thats what matters most.

Getting my new phone

so i got my new phone yesterday. i got the I phone 7. The 32 gig model. I love it. I had to pay 99 euro for the upgrade. Now I am entered into a 24 month contract with the phone company but thats ok with me, I didnt really mind that. The guy who did the upgrade was really nice. He was really friendly and he tried to get me as many discounts as he could. I asked him if he could put my sim card into the phone for me as that is hard to do. I also asked him if he could turn on voice over for me. At first he said I’d have to take out insurance on the phone which also included tech support. That would have cost me 15.99 a month. He thought I didnt know anything about I phones or how to use them. When I told him that actually I know how to use the phone, and I didnt really want insurance, he agreed to switch it on for me and put in my sim card. I was delighted that he agreed to do it for me. He could have just said no or get the insurance. It took about an hour to get the upgrade completed. There was so much paper work to do. I also had to set up direct debit to pay my bill each month. I really didnt want to set up a direct debit but I had no choice as it was required. After the upgrade was complete I took mom for a coffee to thank her for waiting around for me. She said she didnt mind, there had been music playing on the street, people busking and she was enjoying that. So she said the time passed quickly. So now I have the new phone, I had backed everything up to the cloud so it was just a matter of downloading all my apps, photos etc back onto the phone again. That took me about an hour to do yesterday when I got home. I’m happy with the phone though. I really like it.

2 AM, still up

2 AM. wide awake. cant sleep. didnt really try though. was too busy reading blogs. doing email. just messing around online.
I should go to bed soon. I have an early start tomorrow. Mom and me are heading in to get me some new clothes, and my phone. I want to get a new outfit for wednesday night, for the awards ceremony. i hope i can find something nice…im gonna get leggings, and a new top.
other than that no other plans tomorrow. was going to go to my friend normas house, but then realised she had to go to her sisters honeymoon party tonight, so she probably wont be home until late tomorrow evening. i might go over to her on sunday, but then i may not, as mom said she’d like to do my grass, cut it, and that will take a couple hours at least. we’ll see. if i dont go over to norma at the weekend I might go there during next week.
my supervisor brenda you know she’s my supervisor for my volunteer job, she is taking norma and me to an art exhibition next thursday, its specifically for the blind, it should be fun, i am excited to go. you can touch some of the art, and some of it has descriptive voice overs too on it. so yeah. should be good. will let ya’ll know how it is once we go.
well i’d better head to bed, good night, everyone!

My volunteer shift on friendly call

I had a good shift today on friendly call. There were 3 of us making the calls. One of the other volunteers might as well have not been there though, she was just chatting to the office staff, and not bothering to actually make calls, and then, when she did make a couple of calls, she only stayed on the phone about 1 minute with each client. Not good at all in my opinion, that is not how we were trained to make calls! When the receptionist challenged her, she said she felt overwhelmed, but really, there is no need to become overwhelmed, if you do the job right!
Anyway, i got on really good. I called about 30 people. Most of whom were in, and so I was able to chat to them. Most of them were doing good, having a pleasant afternoon, most of them had things they were doing or people visiting them for the afternoon etc. Which is what I like to see!
I spent around 2 hours making the calls. Trish who is the receptionist, she picked me up from my moms to bring me to the office today, and she also dropped me home afterwords. Very sweet of her to do that I think!
I’m extremely happy with how the shift went. I love busy afternoons!
