Good morning, all. It's Friday, nearly the weekend and I have this weekend at home, the first for four weeks, so I am really looking forward to it. There's nothing particularly special planned but I do love my safe space.
Thanks very much for all the comments yesterday - I hope I have replied to them all in the same place.
Slimming World group yesterday was great. I lost a pound and a half, I got my Club Ten award and I won one of the raffles.
The Club Ten thing is when you have lost 10% of starting weight. Regular and longer term readers may remember that I have already done this once, before my gallbladder operation when the consultant encouraged me to lose 10% before he did the op. Well, I've now done it again and I might work out what 10% from here on down is and have that as another mini-target.
The raffle prize was a selection of 'free' and 'low syn' goodies donated by members each week. It's actually meant to be for the slimmer of the week but if they don't stay to group after weighing, it gets raffled instead. There's nothing there that I won't use although I have a carton of Alpro coconut milk thingy and a pomegranate, neither of which I have done anything with before so I will be turning to good old Google for help. Any ideas, anyone? Please comment.
Before group, I had the last tuition of the week. For once it has been a nearly full week with only one cancellation. I don't mind people cancelling; I keep the whole thing very easy, flexible and comfortable and, with family stuff, I might have to cancel myself at very short notice so it is swings and roundabouts really. It all works well.
Today, Beth is over again and I THINK she intends roping me in for some owl cushion making. I might see if I can make the time to cut up the fabric for my Christmas bunting too. And there's the knitting. I have a Christmas nativity to finish for a friend and need to get on with that this weekend with the aim of finishing it next week and getting it posted off in good time.
This evening there's a sort of social get-together at school. Nothing heavy and it should be pleasant although I'm not sure how my new hearing aids will cope with all the background noise. They have a setting for that sort of situation so I guess I will find out, won't I?
It should be a lovely day and I hope yours is too. It's time for another coffee so I'll stop rambling now and get going.
