Good morning everyone!
The day has dawned cold but dry. The car is white where it should be blue, and the locks frozen. Luckily we aren’t planning to go out too early.
Today is The Day. Unlike last week when I was full of trepidation, I am looking forward to collecting the canvases of Maggie and Kizzy today. If I didn’t know better, I’d say Barney was looking forward to some company too. Pictures will follow as promised.
Other than that, our day is free, though I don’t anticipate us being back until after midday. We have a little shopping to do and I’m thinking of getting a stewpack for dinner, as it will also cover tomorrow and Wednesday.
I text in my weight yesterday and have maintained from last week. It would appear that there will be no lee-way over Christmas, and we are expected to ‘weigh in’ on Sunday 27th.
I remember so well when everyone in group had a gain over the Christmas holidays. I also remember a group member many years ago who gained 17lbs in two weeks, despite sticking to plan. It turned out although she had been watching what she ate, she’d forgotten to make allowances for what she drank, and had made merry practically every day from Christmas Eve to New Year!
Hubby and I are not drinkers. Not exactly tee-total either as we enjoy a drink occasionally, but with him on meds and me simply not being able to handle it anyway, we are quite content to go without. This year will be slightly different, as I have bought myself a small bottle of sparkling wine to go with my Christmas dinner, and Hubby has ordered bottle of plum brandy………….. purely for medicinal purposes you understand.
