How can you have too much of something at the same time as having not enough of the same thing?? Well, i'll tell you. When that thing is "pounds". I have come home from holiday with too many pounds (lbs) around my middle and not enough pounds (£) in my purse. Drastic measures are called for in both departments. I do realise that the opposite to my prediciment is to be Victoria Beckham - which I would hate. I love the challenge of being frugal, making inexpensive but tasy meals and making my own fun. I don't however like trying to lose weight. As my mother would put it Ive "let myself go"!!! My summer skirts don't fit and I look very bloaty. So the challenge to myself is on. I'm aiming for a stone off before my next jaunt away. I'll let you know how I go on.
My "baby" will be 14 years old on Friday. He is a lovley young man although his dad says I have made him too soft!! He loves anything car related and his favorite day on holiday was when we took him to Jeepers Karting in Hayle for the morning. It has changed hands since last year, and now the track is bigger, the karts are newer and it looks a load more dangerous to me, but to the young man, it was "ace". It drizzled a bit when we got there, which made the track a bit slippier, which caused him to skid into tyres twice and completely leave the track in spectacular fashion on one occasion. He thought it was great, I was glad when his tme was over!! We have gotten him a really great suprise for his birthday, I think he will be bowled over when he knows what it is.
