A big disappointment.

My op was cancelled because last evening I developed a UTI, I am screaming inside, but I now I can have a go at my CAL blanket. I am to be phoned in two weeks time and as long as everything is clear I shall have my op then. The surgeon was very nice and appreciated my feelings of disappointment. I was hoping to be really using my arm by Christmas.

Just a little crochet

I have been able to do some more of my 'Sunshine and Showers' CAL blanket.. I did frog the 'puffs' twice. I wasn't happy with them and also the turquoise colour either side of the puffs, because although I followed the pattern exactly, it didn't look like her sample. So I did it till I was happy with the look. It is growing very slowly and as I am back into hospital this Thursday for the surgery all over again, I doubt I 'll be doing a lot after it. I shall try, but it isn't easy if every movement is painful.

Feeling good!

I lost this and half as much again... wa---hoooooooImage may contain: text and food
                       

Back on the wagon!

Good results this week I lost 1.5 pounds, which has given me a lift. I have managed to get my head around the fact I am going to be a while losing this weight. I will not lose 2 stone before Christmas which is 14 weeks away, but I will lose weight when I keep to the  plan.. but thinking that is sooooo hard.
This is what I sometimes crave!!

Do you have a weakness??

Where was my resolve???



Today I fell off the wagon, It started off well as we went out to eat in a fish restaurant. Dh and I shared a mixed fish platter, crab, lobster, cockles, muscles, prawns, smoked salmon, crevettes < huge prawns sp?> cray fish tails, whole prawns and whelks, all very healthy; but I also ate with it the warm crusty brown baguette and butter and a change for me a glass of rose.

We left the harbour restaurant and drove into Southwold town for a chocolate tiffin and coffee at Costa, I felt stuffed and we didn't need an evening meal, just a cuppa and Dh and I shared another cake!
There is such a delish bread and cake shop in Southwold.
some colors to your ladder! And yes, you are done! Drawing a ladder ...
But I have put the ladder ready to climb back onto the wagon in the morning, as I have already put in my order for breakfast to Dh for just fresh fruit salad!!
