all

Just got back from the Docs, everything is ok, in fact its great Have managed to lose 7lbs since last May and kept it off Now it may not sound very much, my problem has always been crash dieting and then putting it straight back on again.

I think more about what we eat, so chips are vary rarely eaten as is any fried food, crisps, chocolate etc again we avoid as much as possible. We have been eating more stir frys and salads, so it has worked

Well its almost Tigger Time She is going to the vets this morning for her second set of vaccinations. Hubby took her in last week for a sore eye and had the devils own job getting her into a basket For a 3-legged cat she is very difficult to handle And he said she was very distressed, panting, breathing hard when she got there.

So not really looking forward to this visit. I think i will just wrap her in a towel and pop her in the box. Well thats the theory anyway best check the cupboard for antiseptic cream....

Morning!

Congratulations on your healthy eating diet!

Aww, poor Tigger doesn't know what she's in for yet! Good luck with that! Handy tip - Marrigolds work wonders for preventing claw stabs!

A manky day here in the Land of Manc - thunder storms and torential rain! Willow has just managed to ease himself out from under the settee - poor thing is terrified

More packing to do today - oh the joys! At least I won't be having to go out and get soaked though which is a plus! Although, I do need to change my nearside rear light bulb - so regretting not doing it over the dry weekend now!

Have a Happy Hump Day everyone!

Waiting and waiting! We're awaiting our Homebuyer Report - hopefully a soaking wet postie will be dropping it through my door any time now!

Other than that, it's still the waiting game really! I'm sure all will be well with the Survey and everything will be back on the move again!

I've packed numerous boxes now - oh the joy - and still have many, many more to go! So much stuff - really should stop buying massive controlers for the GameCube!

Are you still hooked on your Xbox?

I am so please to have lost some weight i still feel heavy but there is new ladies gym opened in Wrexham so i am seriously thinking of joining. It is a little more expensive thatn i would like (free would be better ) but i want to feel better and fitter.

Its pouring with rain here as well, the thunder storms woke me up in the wee small hours, they seem to have worked their way up towards Manchester now.

Oh i love my 360 played on-line last night, most of the guys there seemed to be from across the pond judging by the accents But its great fun and i got my butt kicked I really must practice deathmatch more.

Won't Pete buy you the Multi-gym you saw a while ago?

I hope your visit with Tigger goes a lot smoother than you expect and she wanders right into the box!

Yeah, on the radio this morning, they had callers from the Wirral and Blackpool where it was raining and they said it would be working towards Manchester - funnily enough, I noticed that it was raining at daft o'clock this morning!

You actually get to speak to people! That must be so much fun! What games do you play?

Morning all!
It's absolutely pouring down here aswell! Miserable It's still really dark also, it looks like really early in the morning.
Marks brother is taking 3 boxes down to his Mums for me today as I can't move for boxes and washing!
I have seriously stuck into it the past couple of days while I've been off work and the place doesn't feel like home anymore. Theres nothing on the walls anymore and I'm down to using the bare essentials.
I have to do my handwashing though There are a few items which have been in the laundry basket for weeks because they are hand wash only and I've been avoiding it Not transporting dirty clothes to our new house though.
Going to finish off the kitchen this week and then the last bits of the bathroom next week along with packing a bag with a few days worth of clothes in it, then I'm done!
Hope that postie brings your report today!

WE have accents?

Great day here, we finalized our home purchase yesterday, the sellers will be out by 5pm today so

Sar, hope you are feeling better and your move goes well. Same to you rosiemac!

But I don't have to explain to my fellow Brits!

Good Luck with your move, Neet! I bet you're excited now!

Thanks, Neet! I hope so too - just awaiting Mr Postie to arrive at my door with my report!

ETA: My report wasn't there!
post #15 of 24
Well CRAP that your report isn't in Sar. I know you are looking to move things along. I don't know how it works "across the pond where ya'll talk funny," but there were several weeks in our purchase process where I got really concerned because nothing seemed to be going on. Then suddenly - LOOK OUT! Things were hopping and the crunch was on!
post #16 of 24
It is a poop! I know what you mean about things seeming like nothing is going on - pretty much like that, but we do need the Report so we can move forward!

I know you're right! In a week or so, I'll probably be whinging and whining that things are going too quickly and 'I'm not even ready'!
post #17 of 24
We're expecting rain here today also.Plus, LOTS of hail.Should make shopping with 4 kids FUN!
post #18 of 24
Good luck with everyone's move!

It's pouring rain here today too...I guess everyone is getting crummy weather.

I need to do a few loads of laundry today, and take care of some business related stuff....should be a fun day!
post #19 of 24
Good Morning everyone!!

Um, I should actually be getting ready for work right now...this TCS is awful..so addicting I think I need an intervention...

Anyway, not much going on today with me..I got my GST cheque yesterday..which is just money from the government for some credit for some tax thing...yadayada...no idea really, but its a free $88!!

I will be going to the gym today and working my butt off...I can hardly wait

Um, so have a good day, I have to go get ready or I will be TRES LATE for work.

God Morning! Piles of work for me today! I am sleepy and have a headache. Its really trying hard to rain here. Sprinkles and stops and sprinkles and stops. The weatherman says its supposed to rain so I am assuming that the real rain will be here soon.

I tried the pam in the litter box trick last night after I scrubbed them out. Phenom isn't really happy about the new smell in there I guess. She pops her head in the box and sniffs a minute the sits there and looks at me as if she is saying "That box smells. You expect me to use that smelly box?!" Hopefully there will be no mess for me to clean up when I get home this afternoon!!

Well Pete is right, Tigger is a little s*d to box

She was a very un-happy kitty, but bless her, she never scratched or tried to bite me Tigs is all vaccinated now so if she wants to go out she can. Pete and i have different opinions on this, he wants to keep her indoors whereas i feel if she wants to go out she can The vet seemed to think she could manage ok outdoors. It would only ever be when we are home, none of the cats are ever left out when we go to work. But she seems quite content to stayin at the moment, but who can blame her with the weather we have

The 360 is great Sarah, you just plug in the headphones to your controller and you can talk to people all over the world while playing games like Halo2 and Quake4 on-line. You can play on your own or join up with others and play as a team. I haven't tried that one yet, i really am terrible at it

Greeting everyone!!
I am getting up with light rain also but the temps are going to drop throughout the day and a rain/snow to snow is forecast thru friday morning. As a hard freeze is expected tonite I have to suit up and go to the veg garden and pull all the basil as I am trying to squeeze out a supply for this week.
The cats have been out and back in now 3 are snuggling in for their morning nap on the bed!!
Going to try a new recipe for supper-Cheese and sausage soup (with beer)!!
Have a couple invoice to mail, some ironing-not much with this weather!!
Perhaps I'll light a fire in the woodstove before Neil comes home!!
Oh---I got a email from my supervisor at my old job he and and old friend reformed a band and are quite happy with it-you can go to their website and listen to a couple songs-www.idrankwithfrank.com-Dave sounds quite happy with this opportunity and the music sounds pretty good!! Let me know what you think!

good morning everyone! I am going to my best friend's house to hang out with her. I haven't seen her for a long time since we both have been so busy..so I decided to take a day off from going to the shelter (they know that I am not coming, because I am going to visit my best friend) and go hang out with her. I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!
