Have Been Busy, Have a Lot to Show You This Week....

I hope you have all had a great weekend, we went to see my daughter who has moved into a house with her boyfriend in Sudbury, she was all alone this weekend as her boyfriend had to unexpectedly fly back to South Africa (he is Zimbabwean) as his Grandad died and he had to go to the funeral, so she was rather upset that she hadn't been able to go with him and felt lonely, so we took a trip to see her and went for a lovely meal in Prezzo and then geocaching to walk off our meal... a really nice day, thank you Ashleigh.

I have been mega busy over the past week, what with cleaning my house to within an inch of its life (so I dont feel too lazy crafting all this week too) an I even used a toothbrush to clean the skirtings... lol I have also been busy making cards, halloween gifts etc... and have lots of other ideas too... I really would like to make some Christmas Cards this week, and I have bought far tooooo many Christmas bits, so should have enough to last me for the next 10 years... lol

So here is a card I have made...


And I also have another card to show you, not sure if I have already shown it to you, but just incase, here it is... Not sure about the paper or the image, and the ribbon and buttons were from my stash.


This image was coloured in using copic markers and the image is a Sweet Nellie image, the sentiment is computer generated and the paper I expect is Basic Grey... my favourite.

And as promised, here are my before and after photos from my diet. The before was taken last summer when we were on holiday, I cannot believe I looked so awful and even my children have said we didn't realise you looked so bad mum... so here is the before.

> Yep, very bad photo, this was me at around 14stone 9lb and a size 20, and here is the end result which I arrived at in August this year...


And this is me at the Haagen Dazs Cafe in Leicester Square at 11pm on 31st August, which was our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed at a 5* Hotel in Mayfair (The Metropolitan) and I wasn't ashamed about being fat, I was so happy with what I had achieved and that I finally looked normal. So this is the end result, 9 stone 12lb and a size 8 to 10...

So here's hoping that you all had a great weekend, and that your weekend will be just as good.

Take care
