Off work for christmas......long time needed

Well Hello.....................
Thought I would share with you some pictures from Paige's concert and carol service.
Who needs father christmas to come when we have our own at home!

It's been weeks I know since I have been on here, but work has been manic and now it's time to relax with 2 weeks off!

Feel like I should be one of those comedians with half of me dressed as a woman and the other half of me dressed as a man!...not forgetting the chauffeur hat as well!

My ex husband has done his bit, but he is working up until christmas eve so hence all has been down to me

We have had, disco's ,concerts, carol services, christmas parties, family birthday's......and it now goes quiet, thank the lord for peace, that's what I say.

I have to say though, I am organised, presents,wrapped and away, shopping booked online, only shop I need to go in is the opticians for Kirsty to have her eyes tested on tuesday....feel like super woman somtimes, as work has been hectic to say the least.

I have worked, days, afternoons and evenings, and somehow been able to get the kids from A to B with no one moaning and sulking! GO ME!!!!!.........................

I know.......long time no speak!

I know not been on here for ages, but Paige and Kirsty took up most of October and work is totally manic at the moment, so any free time is taken up by trying to make a hole in the christmas shopping.
I have managed to get over my gain and I am now 2lbs off my 2st, which will be here before christmas!
Weight is ok,managed to lose 1lbs this week, even after a night on the vodkas.......oops!
We had our works christmas night out, we have all got kids, so this was the only time we could get together......
Now that's a different story, we opted for a ladies night with a drag queen and strippers...............was WELL worth the money......lol
Something different alright, and as you can guess everyone had a ball!
I suppose the biggest NSV over the last few weeks is, that none of my jeans fit me they are now all too big and I have a saggy bum in them as Kirsty proceeds to tell me when I put them on, even a belt is now not doing any good.

Well I have weathered the storm................and..

Come out the other end!!!
Have had an awful couple of weeks hence no posts from me.(:(

but I am back and full of it.
I weighed in on the 20th october and maintained, which I was pleased about as I had been ill over the week before.
And then I fell off the wagon big style, just couldn't get back on it, plus stress levels had hit the maximum, with both Paige and Kirsty not well, and Paige having a perforated ear drum.
Plus carer's problems , I just gave up.
I think the wake up call was jumping on this week and gaining 5lbs, I couldn't believe how quick it could go back on.
So my bum is seat belted in on the wagon and I am now back in the long haul!

Saturday, 17 October 2009

Oh boy what a week.................................

Finally managed to get my bum on here.
Manic week, after the kids got over their spout of illness, I came down with it.
Fell ill on monday ,spent most of monday in bed with flu like symptons, but managed to get over that quickly,only to be left with swollen glands.
Had my tonsils out when I was 23 so sore throat I can cope with, but hate swollen glands, I get cold,they hurt, can't swallow properly, can't sleep, so have been going to bed with my companion.......a bottle of night nurse....she sure knows how to keep my happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lost 4 lbs on tuesday, taking meto 1lbs away from my 2 st goal, but also know that I wasn'twell either so will have to make sure I don't gain this week.......

Monday, 12 October 2009

OMG I feel ill.

I feel ill today, don't know whether it's the stress of last week catching up with me,but woke about 3 this morning feeling drained.
Tossed and truned allnight, and after a lem sip at 7 this morning, managed to fall into a deep sleep till 2 this afternoon.
Feel ok, aching has subsided but have a sore throat and feel like I can't be asked doing anything....

Sunday, 11 October 2009

Well after a very manic week, where the kid's and work took over, I did eventually get a weekend to relax.

Paige was off all week, whilst Kirsty went back to school.

Work was just rather caotic,normally work part time, which is about 17.5 hrs, managed to clock up 16 hrs in the 1st 2 days, so that says it all doesn't it.

Went to a 50th birthday party last night, was fancy dress, spent my money on kirsty, so I wnet as myself....I know very original!
Kirsty went with a group of people as the kids from fame.....god that bought back some memories.
I remember watching that after TOTP on a thurs night!
We had a really good night, did start off pointing my drinks and then ended up just drinking anything!
I know by that it was a good night, sore throat today as well.......

Wednesday, 7 October 2009

Why is life soooooooo trying!!!!!!!

After Kirsty getting over not being well, and me thinking everything is getting back to narmallity...if there is ever anything like that in this house.
One of Paige's carer's has been diagnosed with the swine flu.....so stress levels are now up, and I just wonder what else can go wrong!

Week 5 over with....

And what a long week it has been.

Got off to a good start , then Kirsty fell ill on thursday with the flu, so all my free time taken up looking after her.

Went out on Saturday night and before I wemt Paige was sent home form restbite with a sore throat and not well.
So here was I with 2 girls not well and hardly any sleep!
Both of the girls were off school yestedray, which noramlly causes problems with me as there is too much temptation around....but I managed to be good.
Did I reap the benefits this morning...OH YES!!!!!
I managed to lose 2lbs, taking me to 21 lbs and my 3rd silver seven in 5 wks, I am over the mooooon with that.

OMG, weekends come round soooooo fast

I can't believe the weekend is here again and we are now into october .
Been another busy week, hence no posts, the girls make sure they keep me busy.

Kirsty is off school sick over the last 2 days, better now though.
Out on staurday night for the 1st time in a month, usually drink vodka and lemonade, but I am going to have to get used to diet coke with it, as need to save pts from somewhere...

WI no 4......1 month in.....

Well I have survived a month without any hiccups...go me! go me!
Stayed the same this wk, happy with that as time has not been on my side the latter part of the week, with apts with the kids so the wii had to sit where it was!
Onnnnnnnnnnnnn a plus note I measured myself and in 1 month I have managed to lose 10 inches from my body!
1inch from my waist.
2 inches from my hips
3.5 inches from my bust
3.5 inches from my thighs

I have noticed the difference in my jeans, I can take them off without undoing them.....

Random thoughts.....

Well I am sitting here after watching the secret millionaire on channel 4 and it's got me in a right tizz and upset.
The young girl from the local hospice is the spitting image of Paige,only Paige has a curvature in her spine and will never get to go to swim with the dolphins.
Her hair, her shape, the way she puts her head back, and the way her hands move I see day to day, and can relate soooooooooooooo much to her mother's feelings.
Quite emotional really.
Paige came home today from the hospice full of smiles and laughter, house is now back to normality.

Tuesday, 22 September 2009

WI no 3....................

Well here we are again.....
Can't believe I am about to get into my 4th wk on ww, and still focused which is an achievement in itself!
I managed to lose 2lbs last wk, taking me to 20lbs off for good in 3 wks.
It's a wonderful feeling and long may it continue.
I think I have some affect on Kirsty, she is not overweight, but need to lose about 1st to look better, I think sometome it's the way she holds herself..
She has pointed out this afternoon after me being on the wii fit that she needs to lose a bit of weight,so hopefully 2 of us on the journey will help.

Why do weekends go so fast......

Well another weekend over and nearer to christmas...lol.
So Kirsty keeps telling me, even though I would rather not think about it till beg on Nov!
Have had a funny sort of weekend, had no kids, but been up to allsorts, have a lovely evening in on friday night, then spent yesterday afternoon moving furniture for my ex sister in law who has just got divorced from her hubby...I know long long story, but we do still get on ..and I couldn't leave her stranded.
That took 3 hrs,all the time me thinking how many bonus pts would this be.
Then went to my mates last night to have my hairt coloured, brought vibrant purple and expected it to look some sort of purple..nope it's looks jet black.
Only when I step into the light/sun does it come purple.
I suppose on a lighter note I am off tomorrow,got to make my hours up in work over the week, but it makes the weeknd go that little bit longer....then again Kirsty will make sure I am awake before she goes to school.

Looooooooonggggggggg day!

It's been a long day today, things just seem never ending.

Wii fit this morning..(how good I am getting!)
Then off to work for 11, cam ehome about 3ish, just happened to have a cuppa then off to take Paige to the hospice for 6 days, in there for nearle 2 hrs sorting out all her meds, feeds etc.
Then a load of housework when I came in, tea only now just got in the oven.
In between that I had to put my taxi hat on for Kirsty, who thinks I juggle, run etc like all of us have to do multi task!
In hinds sight to that I do have a free weekend,ex is having Kirsty all weekend,so got a very close friend around this weekend, so plenty of attention on me!!! lol.

Week 2 weigh in.....

Well after a really good week, with food and exercise I managed to lose 4LBS!!!
That now makes it 18LBS IN 2 WKS
I know I had to shout it from the roof tops, absolutely over the moon with it.
Oh and also my 5%...let's not forget the little things as they help as well.
Never I have I lost so much in 2 wks...don't know whether it's the exercise or due to the fact that I have never been this motivated before.
A group of my friends have started back to a class on a thursday, I have not joined them, as it just turns into a big competition..which I know I don't need, I need to gain the will power and do it slowly and steadily.
I know that I am going to hit bad days/weeks, but will cross them when I come to them, I just think I don't need the competition right now as I just starting to get my head around it again.

Wii fit I think is getting bored of me....5 out of 7 days I am on it,doing 35 mins a time, noticing the difference in my waist too, good sign really.

weekend over!

I have decided that the weekends go wayyyyyyyyyy to fast!
Back to work in the morning.
Sun has shone all weekend here for a change, live on the west side of the country and normally catch the rain and wind coming over from the irish sea.
My peace is also over as Kirsty is back and as 13 yrs old go, is now trying to rule the house again...I say trying as yet she has to succeed.......
Paige is home tomorrow and then going away to the local children's hospice on thursday for 6 days,that gives us chance to catch up on things we can't do..simple things really like a trip to mc donalds, (paige hates it and cries to the point of she is sick) not having to worry about feeding times when out and where we can go that can accomadate the wheelchair and all her needs.

Friday, 11 September 2009

Weekend is here at last.......


Well after a busy week,the weekend is here at last.
Peace this weekend as Paige is restbite till monday and Kirsty is off to Wolverhampton with friends on saturday night...so a weekend for me!
Diet is doing ok, been on the wii fit board 3 times this wk, only chance to exercise really.
Anyway have a good weekend !

My 1st blog and introduction

Well here I am.

I am sure I have said this many times before, but deep down I know this time is different.
It's time to concentrate on me.
My youngest turned a teenager over the summer and with her going into yr 9 in school left me thinking do I want to be this big when she leaves school, or even graduates!

Because this is my 1st post, let me let you about me and my family.

I am a single mum, to 2 girls aged 15 and 13.
The eldest is severly disabled and life is sooooooooooooooo hectic, hence I never know when my free time is coming!
Wouldn't change my life for the world, even though my stress levels have hit their max many a time!
I am close friends with my ex husband and I suppose luv him to bits as a friend( as I say he knows me too well !)
Work part time, and can juggle! lol.
Decided that my turning point this yr would be after I had been on a family holiday to norfolk, after being away for 10 days, and gaining 10lbs, ww was the answer.
Started the 1st sept and weighed in at my heaviest 23st 8.
Had the shock of my life this week as I had managed to lose 14lbs..yes 1st in a week!
So this is my 2nd wk on the wagon and now I am in the weight range to tackle the wii fit board!
Suppose you could call it a nsv, cause last week it wouldn't accept me.
Anyway I am off now, going to work in 20 mins.
Catch up with you all later.
Kath xx
