So relaxed!

I just took a long, hot bubble bath! It was bliss!

I am feeling very relaxed now! It feels good!

I am enjoying this nice quiet sunday at my parents house. I am glad I went grocery shopping yesterday. It saved a lot of stress as if I went today I’d have had to take nitro, and my sister was going to take me, but then she’d have had to bring her kids, we’d have had nitro, the shopping, and then trying to fit all of us and the shopping in the car would have been a nightmare!

So I am glad mom took me yesterday! It was good to go get it done. I was able to think what I needed, but I did forget shampoo! Good thing I keep some at my parents house, so I can bring that home until I can get some more later in the week.

My plan today is to do a 20 minute workout on my phone, a walking workout. I was going to go out walking, but it rained. So the workout will suffice.

On another note, and this may be tmi for all you men out there, but my weight loss is progressing nicely, I tried on a bra this morning, one I had that wouldn’t fit me when I weighed 2 stone heavier, and this morning, it fit and fit perfectly! I am delighted, mom also said my tummy seems to be getting smaller so win win!

I feel great! Always nice to get compliments! I’ll take them when I am getting them!

Christmas cookies

My friend sent me a Christmas box. Contained three varieties of cookies that she baked. They were chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal raisin. I tasted some of them already. They taste so yummy

I love this time of year. I love getting treats in the mail. It’s actually really nice to get treats at Christmas time. Really makes my day brighter.

Thank you my sweet friend for baking cookies for me. I really appreciate it

Sorted out nitros food query

So I rang the vets. Remember I said I was going to ask if they will take payment for dog food over the phone? Well they do. Thank god! Now I don’t have to give my visa debit card to mom, I can just ring them and buy nitros food over the phone! Yay! Problem solved! And nitro wont starve hahaha! Not that he would anyway, I’d never let him starve! I love him too much to see him be without food! So anyway, on Thursday morning I can now buy his food, and then my mom can collect it for me on Thursday afternoon when she’s out grocery shopping. I’m very pleased, ha, easily pleased aren’t I? This is good news though! I love having a visa debit card. It makes things so much simpler. Mostly I pay for everything with it nowadays. Its either do that, or else use my 24 hour online phone banking for paying bills etc. I love that too. I don’t love the bank charges though that I have to pay every 3 months. But anyway. Everything worked out in the end. And Nitro will have his monthly bag of food on Thursday.

Quiet morning

I’ve had a very quiet and chill morning. Very relaxed and not too busy. I’ve been watching tv, downloading books, and just messing around online. I decided that I wouldnt go to visit my friend Norma today. We talked on the phone instead. I also talked to mom. I might nap in the afternoon. I’ll see how I feel, whether I am tired enough to nap or not. I may not, I may just wait and go to bed early tonight. I had to call the vets surgery, that is where I get nitros food. I am almost out of dog food. I thought they’d be open today but I forgot its a bank holiday here so everywhere or almost everywhere is closed. I was going to ask them if I can pay for the food over the phone, as I need my visa card, and if I cant do it over the phone, then I will have to give my visa card to mom, so she can buy the food for me on thursday when she goes grocery shopping. But I need the card myself on Friday. So we’ll see. I’m thinking I should be able to pay over the phone. I’ll call them back tomorrow and check it out. I might read in a little while. I havent read any more of my book since yesterday morning. I just made myself some lunch. Im trying to be really mindful of my food choices this week so that I’ll be down a few pounds when I go to slimming world on Wednesday night. I hope I will be down. I am eating lots of fruit and I havent had any bread or very little bread. I havent had any crisps or chocolate either. No junk food. Im also trying to make my christmas present list, a list of who I need to buy for this year. I want to go into town on saturday and do a little shopping, both for christmas presents, and for some new clothes for myself, mainly jeans and tops. Mom said she’d take me so that will be cool. I like going with mom, she knows what I like to wear, and also, I like spending time with her just the two of us. She told me on the phone she’d try to call to me some day this week if she is able too. Well thats about it for now, catch ya’ll later peeps!

Goals update…

I’ve completed most of my goals for today so I am happy.

I showered, first thing when I woke up.

I saw my gp. That went well.

I read a little. My book is good and I think I will become addicted soon lol.

I ate lunch, a nice sandwich of chicken and stuffing and a big fruit salad.

I havent been to slimming world yet but I am going tonight and I am hoping I’ve lost weight.

ER visit update

c So as you all know we were in the ER last night. We had already seen a doctor after the accident on sunday but we were still all very sore and feeling bad so we decided to go to A and E to be checked over. However we didnt end up being seen. We got there around 7:30. We were triaged and then they said there would be a 4 to 6 hour wait to be seen by a doctor. We were prepared to wait but then around 11:30 Lauren got cranky and very tired and was crying to go home. So mom went to reception and asked them where we were in the queue. The receptionist said there was still 10 people ahead of us. So then we decided not to wait and to just go home. We had an apt with our regular GP scheduled for wednesday morning. So yeah, after a four hour wait we just left. I wasnt happy about it but I had no choice but to go since my sister was leaving and she was the one who had a car to take us home. And still today things arent great. Still we’re feeling bad physically and also mentally. We’re all still very very sore and bruised. And we have pain in our heads and necks. Im still taking antiinflamitories and pain relief. The nurse did say we were categorised and we were being seen based on what was wrong with us so that is why there was such a long wait, because we werent classed as emergencies. So thats my ER update. I have another one about what we did this morning but I’ll write that one up later on today.

happy saturday!

Saturday. I am feeling good. I woke up late today. Well when I say late it was just gone 9 AM. But thats late for me. Im usually up earlier than that.

I’m off to the gym in a little while. I plan on just doing the treadmill and the bike when there. Im leaving the weights alone today, as mom doesnt know how to set them up.

My niece stayed in mom and dads last night. You wouldnt even know she’s there. She’s so quiet. All she does is go on her ipad. Play games on there. She did go for a walk with my dad and the dogs this morning though. She’s 10.

Mood wise today we’re doing ok. We decided the best thing to do last night was have an early night. We started feeling anxious and kinda agitated, so we went to bed and tried to sleep. At first we werent able to fall asleep easily. Nitro was really unsettled. He was panting a lot and whimpering and I wasnt sure why.

Eventually he settled though. Thank goodness.

Well thats about it for this mornings update. Am off to check my email now. Catch ya’ll later!
