Valentine's Day

Mick and I don't really do Valentine's Day, so no roses, chocs or cards in this house this weekend, but we did acknowledge that it was 26yrs ago yesterday that we had our first kiss ..awwww!! 
As B is home for the weekend we started the day off at Griggs for breakfast and they now see why I like it there so much, even Mick said he was full.  It really does fill you up for the day, none of us thought about food until tea time when it was mussel time :) (see previous post).  So after Griggs B and I went over to Pine Lodge gardens for a mooch around and some photos, then onto the garden centre for some plants for us both.  So lovely that she is into gardening as well :)

In the afternoon the three of us went for a walk around the Nare and some chill time.

As I am now posting this today Monday, I will do an update on the weight situation!!!  Basically last weekend I bought myself some new scales - big mistake as they proved to me the old ones were seriously out :(  - which if I am honest did not come as a big surprise as in my heart I knew I was heavier than they said!!  Anyway it was what I needed, so I have been good with portion size and no bread (which was not so easy) and the result is this morning I am now 3lb lighter :) (jumping for joy) and I actually feel it. (my stomach thinks my throat has been cut all week, sure it will get use to the feeling by the end of this week!!) These scales also give BMI and Fat/water content. So looks like the trying harder does pay off after all. lol


  1. Great that B shares your love of gardening, and well done on your weight loss.
    Joy x x

  2. 3lbs - well done you! I'm staying pretty much the same and am struggling to lose any weight at all. Don't feel too sorry for me though as I'm fairly sure the problem is linked to the new Indian takeaway in town, so I'm just relieved that I'm not actually gaining any weight!!

  3. Well done you and so glad you had a good time with B x x x

  4. We also do not celebrate Valentine's Day, but then discovered when we went out for lunch on the 15th they still had the Valentine's menu. We probably spent more than we would have if we had gone for their normal menu, but it was different and we enjoyed it. Love that first photo but they all are good. Hope your week is a good one Diane

  5. Lovely photos again Karen. I love this time of year when there is no cloud cover as the air is so clear
