My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

31 August 2012

Love Me, Love Me Not

Morning peeps!  

Well it's been a busy week and my last one before I go back to work next Tuesday!  On Wednesday night I completed my first week at Slimming World and I lost 4.5 lbs - I have to say I am over the moon with that result, so here's to another good loss next week - I will keep you posted on how it goes.  I went out last night with the girls from work for our pre catch up and it was Pizza Express - but go me, I was very good and had one of the healthy salads and no alcohol!

So onto today's card and I'm glad to say the picture uploader is back to normal too! Hurrah!
