We are in the middle of possibly the wettest drought on record! This means that lovely light evenings are being wasted by me having to be indoors! The garden is totally soaked and the lovely spring flowers are battered. The rain (and hail) are of biblical proportions, and it is starting to have echoes of 2007 about it! The River Don is on a flood warning and we saw a few worried looking environment officials on a bridge near the Meadowhall shopping centre - which flooded last time. But on a positive note, it also means that a bit of decorating I have on the go is getting done!
I am still very motivated to try and get a better looking body for summer, and found this book in a charity shop which is helping me too. Some of the rules are hard. No wheat (not so hard) No dairy (a bit hard, I am a cheeseaholic) and NO WINE!!!! (very hard!) . You start by giving yourself 2 weeks on the "diet" . I thought 2 weeks would be easy, but I realised at the end of day 1 that 2 weeks was going to be a long time!! However by day 3, I felt a lot less bloaty and my clothes fit much better and this has spurred me on. I think this book was a bargain for 50p!
So when it does stop raining, hopefully I will look better/fit into my summer clothes!
