I am sorry not to have been on emoticon much recently but things have been very difficult with Michael, he was Ok on holiday but his brothers death has affected him more than we first thought, he is making no effort at all and has not been out of bed for a month. I really love this site and it gives me loads of support but I cannot get on the computer very often. What I really need is a computer of my own but I cannot afford one but I am on the lookout for a 2nd hand one.

    I am sorry to hear that Michael is having a hard timecoping with the death of his brother. Death is a hard thing to handle at anytime. Put your faith in god and he will carry you and your family through it all. My prayers are with you and your family.

    Sorry to hear about Michael's problems, that explains why we didn't get to meet up with you today as you were hoping to do. I hope things get better for you both soon.

    Hope things start looking up for you soon...

This should be a lovely time of year for you to be outside (not here in Texas where it is as hot as blue blazes, but where you are) , can you lure Michael out of bed on the pretext of washing the sheets and get him outdoors? Nature has such healing properties, I think.

Good Holiday

Sunday, June 26, 2011

We had a great week in Wales and the weather was very kind to us, there was 2 trips planned but as they were only small places the driver suggested that we only had short visits and then he would take us on a tour. The tour company, driver, the hotel and Barmouth were all great and we would use them all again.
I don't think I did to bad on holiday eating wise but will not be weighed until Thursday when I go to my exercise class.
We had bad news a few days before the holiday, Michael's brother died back in March but no one knew how to contact Michael or even that he had a brother so the funeral went ahead without us knowing, Michael seem to take it well but now we have found out that he left £7000 or there abouts, it is not going to easy to sort out has he did not leave a will. This problem is not helping Michael and has sent his mood very low.

    Sorry to hear that Michael is having problems coping with his brothers death, maybe if he could find someway of saying goodbye to him it might help.
Glad your holiday was a success though.

What a mistake to make

Sunday, June 19, 2011

We have just got back from a lovely day out(it was an annual bus running day at Peak Rail near Matlock), we decided to have an meal out of soup or jacket potatoes only to find both of our favourite cafes closed so we went in a fish and chip shop(not good) the lady got our order mixed up and ended up with far to many chips(I did enjoy the meal) but felt really full afterwards. I am not going to watch my weight while I am away but I am going to take care not to overeat and will be happy if I stay the same weight until the next weight in.
My bags are packed and I am all ready for my holiday, I am looking forward to the change and seeing somewhere different.

Doing well

Thursday, June 16, 2011

I have been to my weekly exercise class today, before I go in I always weigh myself on there scales and to my surprise I had lost another 2 pounds.
I am on holiday next week, we are going to Barmouth in North Wales for 5 days from Monday, just hope the weather is OK as I think it has been raining there all week( can anyone tell me otherwise), it will be my first time in Wales and I am really looking forward to the change.
On Sunday we will be at Peak Rail (Matlock) for a bus running day, I shall spend most of my time in Bakewell as there is usually a craft market on and also the charity shops are open and I love to look around them as you never know what you can pick up.
Is anyone from the north of the area going to the party in the park? (Eastwood, Alfreton), I would like to go but cannot drive.

    Sounds like you have a busy but enjoyable time coming up & I hope the weather is good for your holiday. The good thing about North Wales is that it looks fantastic whatever the weather it's just that you can't see as far when it's raining. LOL!
Why don't you put a request on the Party in the Park Topic & hopefully someone will be able to give you a lift.

Things have slowed down

Friday, June 03, 2011

I did not lose any weight this week and only a pound last week, I do know why as I did quite a bit of nibbling. I am going to renew my efforts this week as I have over 2 stones to go. Some of the trouble lays when I have a different routine as I tend to eat more, tomorrow I will be in Chesterfield for most of the day( Michael's interests is buses and there is a bus running day where you can hop on and off as many buses as you like for free), I enjoy looking around the market as they have some very good plant stalls. It is only 2 and half weeks to my holiday and I am really looking for to it.
some thing I have knitted for an African charity emoticon emoticon
