Thank you for the wonderful gift - I'm sure that if I unwrapped it, there would be something to include in one of the gardens I hope to create along the front of each fence bordering my yard.

Your dream really took me by surprise, because when the fencing guys pulled down the old fence they offered to pull out the stumps left in the ground after I'd cut down the privet hedge to just above ground level. I'd gone out while they were doing so, and was really disappointed to see that they'd also pulled out some lovely old lilac bushes which had been growing amongst the privet for decades, and had taken them to the green waste recycling depot to be mulched. I had a beautiful old lilac bush in a house I lived in when my girls were only little, and it looked so beautiful when it was in bloom. I didn't regret moving to a different suburb, but I did regret leaving the lilac behind.

I'm going to buy myself some lilacs, and alternate the deeo purple, mauve and white flowering varieties along my side fence - as a result of your dream. It's been several weeks of trying to decide what to plant there, with nothing seeming quite right. Thank you so much for the inspiration, which I guess what what was really contained in my beautiful gift. It may take a few months to get the time, energy and motivation to get it done, but I know that each time I see those lilacs I will think of you and your dream.

Just wondering... what colour is your lilac?

Thank you so much for the wonderfully positive comments you left in reply to my blog about not being at all concerned I hadn't lost any weight this week. Its only been the past few days that I've walked into the bathroom without being tempted to check out my weight, see how I was doing - and that may have been five or six times each day. Now the only time I notice the scales (once the first things I saw from the doorway) when I'm mopping or sweeping the floors, lol.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments in reply to my blog. If not for the support and friendship, the motivation to keep on trying no matter what, that I've found here on Spark People from Spark friends such as you, I'd still be the sad, completely unmotivated, junk food eating person I was before I discovered Spark People. And there I was, when I first read about the site, thinking to myself that I'd give it a try for a week or two.

I would never have believed that a weight loss/healthy eating site could change every single aspect of my life, and give me back my sense of self worth and motivation. Seems to work its magic on all of us here, doesn't it, without our even noticing.

I guess I'm lucky in that I live alone, and my family are scattered all around the country. I have no need to keep my pantry stocked with goodies just in case they drop in, because I always have weeks, if not months, of advance notice before a visit.

Is there somewhere you could store those things safely, but where you wouldn't have them staring at your from the pantry shelves? Even a large plastic storage tub with a lockable lid might keep them out of your way.

Your comments on my blog are so right - I guess though I knew I was running the risk of the room full of someone else's furniture was not going to be short term when I offered to store it. Just bad timing, because within a week or two, all those long-vacant flats and houses had disappeared from the 'to lease' list due to a large, long term construction contact being approved to go ahead in a town 30 minutes from us. Now anything still vacant is either not fit to live in or is so expensive it's way beyond reach of anyone with a single income.

I'll just be happy to have this room (to the left of my front entry) looking neat and nicely arranged so it's functional and not just one thing crowded in against something else, which is in front of yet another thing. I'm going to save so much time each day when I have it finished, because there will be no more wondering which carton/storage tub the one thing I need is hiding in, lol. Besides, then I'll be able to finally get back to sewing again. That thought will make having to do almost anything worthwhile!
