Hello, again.

25 Feb

Wowzer. I can’t believe how long it has been. Has it really been that long?

So, an update first, I think.

Little Lady is now two (and four months) and is a fully walking, talking, opinionated, creative, clever, occasionally-stroppy-but-generally-happy-and-lovely little girl. I am still at home with her, despite my efforts to find a part time-job, or to come up with a viable making-money-from-home idea. More on that later.

Meanwhile, Lovely Man Dan and I are well in the swing of wedding planning, which is a rather bizarre mix of incredibly fun and extremely stressful. Mostly, it is just very exciting though. The date is set, and venue, registrar and photographer are all booked. No dress shopping yet though, as I am in the process of finally doing something about my Mummy Tummy (and other wobbles). I joined a well known slimming group back in October (no, not that one, the other one) and have since lost 32lbs. Or 2 stone, 4pounds. Or, as Dan put it to me the other night, one of those big packs of 6x two litre bottles of coke, plus another bottle. Not sure how he worked that out but I’ll take his word for it, and I remember from my days of working in retail that those things are HEAVY. I can’t quite believe I was carrying all that around with me. I am only half way through my journey though, so there are sure to be some hard times ahead. But, an end is in sight. And I would have never imagined that I could get this far.

So there you go. A lot more has happened, of course, but I won’t bore you with every little detail. I have decided, though, that since I have so much going on, this blog will take on a bit of a new direction now. Several directions in fact. I will be sharing stories of wedding planning and weight loss, as well as the usual Mummy stuff. AND I might also have a few crafty ideas in the pipeline, which I will also share here, once I get my act together.

It’s nice to be home. It’s warm and cosy here.
