30 today

Today I turned 30. I'm no longer in my 20's. It's a weird feeling. This is me cutting the cake at the party on Saturday night. It was a brilliant party with everyone I wanted there.
Beth was there for a while but wasn't feeling well. She's still not well today. This is a picture of her at a mother and baby summer party last week. She'd lots of fun in the playhouse.
We bought her a big bed as she was climbing out of her cot. Here is a picture of her first night in the bed. It took her 2 weeks to get used to it!
Yesterday Beth spent the morning in her grandparent's house and was picking raspberries (she picks the flowers in my garden)
We'd a few days of really good weather for summer. It's back to overcast skies and rain now. Beth and I made the most of the good weather while it was here!

Weight loss

Been a while again!

My little girl is now 1 year and 7 months old. Beth is so brilliant. This morning when I went into her room she was laughing and gave me a big smile. I'm not usually a morning person but she turns me into one :-) She has lots of words now and I can ask her what she wants when she gets annoyed. It's usually walk, cheerios, drink or pets (wonder pets cartoon). She loves the bath and swimming pool and we try to go once a week. I get a lot more hugs now. She just gets a notion and says hug and starts running for me. She has her tantrum-y moments but mostly she is a good kid. Peas (please) and dac oo (thank you) are being used more often too. Here are some photos At the beach over Easter

Still doing weight watchers and have lost 2st 4lb so far. I'm down 2 dress sizes since starting. I think it's beginning to show :-) This is me exactly a year ago and a lot less tanned :-) (fake btw)
Bye for now :-)

Weight watchers

Ok so it's been a while since I posted.....

What's new with me? Well, I started weight watchers in October and to date I have lost 18.5lb!!! I feel great. Younger. More energy! I've started fitting into my old clothes which is a great boost to my self esteem! Hoping to be my ideal weight for my 30th birthday on the 1st August this year. That will be in total 3st 2lb lost! I'll be able to wear what I want. I can't wait!
My gorgeous little girl is now 1 year 4 months old and is so much fun! She started creche back in August and loves it. There seems to be a new word everyday now with her. She really enjoyed Christmas. (so did I :-))
Here are a couple of pictures of her.... always up to mischief !
