Glad he's home Verdon.  You may find that he picks up better in familiar surroundings. 

I need your help

Thanks all for your tips. I can't remember who said what  ( grey matter not working lol ). I have had my thyroid checked and it's fine.  I put the weight on when I started on Gabapentin, but there's no option to change it. 

I am trying not to think of it as a diet,  hence not going in for any meal replacement.  I am just eating more fruit and veg and no cakes biscuits etc. I can't exercise as such,  but make sure I walk as much as possible. 

I only weigh myself on Saturday mornings so will post my weight loss then. 

Keep the ideas coming .

First harvest!

We had our own grown peas and broad beans with Sunday dinner. The first time I have ever tried growing any veg.  

I agree they do taste soooo much better than shop bought.

Katherine, I know what you are saying about breakfast.  I have to eat something tho.  I start work at 6 am and my break is 10 am.  If I don't have something to eat before I start working I find that I am feeling faint by break time.

No rain here again today, plenty of cloud cover tho.  I've been clearing a strip of earth in next doors garden next to my fence.  She has 2 small children and goes out to work so doesn't have a lot of time to do it and her hubby 'can't ' do it!  I don't mind doing it as it keeps the weeds from spreading to my side of the fence. 

Now that my small garden is under control it only takes an hour or two to do , so moving next door is the simple solution. 

I.D. Please

Sorry I can't id them,  but they do say that a weed is only a plant in the wrong place,  so if you like them keep them. I do.

Night night Mrs G  and have a good day. ........with Clari 


Posted: 11/07/2015 at 22:51

Clari,  he sounds just like my ex. That's just the sort of thing he did.  Don't stand for it it just gets worse. I speak from experience.  Don't wait on his family tomorrow,  get your glad rags on and when they knock on the door, answer it and say something like "he's in there "then go and join Mrs Garden at the plant fair and leave him to look after them. 

I know how hard it is to do something like this but you deserve better. Chin up. Hugs are on their way.

Darryl I have to cut out biscuits completely. ......I can't just eat one if I open the packet i have to finish it. 

Mrs Garden what I have been having is a portion of Belvita breakfast biscuits for my breakfast   (they keep me full until lunchtime ) then it's a salad with a small portion of either noodles, pasta or potatoes, and at teatime it's fruit and low calorie yoghurt.  If I want anything in between it's grapes. 

I know Belvita is not the best breakfast but when I'm back at work I start at 6 am and can't face eating anything else at that time in the morning, but know how important breakfast is.
