One of those days

I was under the understanding that with small children you can guarantee that they will be ill between October and April and then well for the summer.

So 2 weeks into the summer holidays and Oliver has had tonsillitis, Martha is teething for England and now they both have fruity coughs. ARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHH. I am going slightly insane. To top it all off Andrew who is never ill has had an infection of the salivary gland. Why he couldn’t just get a cold like the rest i have no idea. So 4 weeks till term time and counting.

Off to Ikea today because I forgot to get enough fabric last time which means that i have to brave the shop from hell. Although at least it means that lunch is sorted. – what child doesn’t like Swedish meatballs.

The hen do is looming and my weight has not come down at all. Not at all. I am running 2 – 3 times a week. I walk 2 miles a day plus stomach exercises every day and swimming. Any weight loss? Not on your Nelly. I must be the fittest fat person around.

How can you not lose weight when you do all that exercise?????????????????????

Obviously I haven’t given up the wine, chocolate or my new summer drink Pimms (with DIET lemonade of course). But a girl has got to have pleasures.

I would like to think that it is all turning into muscle, but the flab hanging over my waistband is giving the game away slightly.

SO the bag i am making had better be bloody good to avert peoples eyes from my jelly belly. The handles arrived today – well actually two pairs, but that is a WHOLE different story, so I just need to get cutting and sewing.

The beach bag is nearly finished and I inserted a zipped interior pocket without swearing, breaking a needle or getting divorced! A first. And thanks to a handy hint from Ali, my machine is working properly.

Is anybody else having one of those days????

  1. Sorry for you. And no, my day is fine so far. And from what I hear your famous British weather has been quite cold-inducing lately.

    And you shouldn’t try to lose weight quickly for something like the hen do. Everybody will be so pre-occupied with her own “fatness” that nobody will care. And I saw your pictures. You’re not fat. You’re cute.

    For me exercise and weight loss are only marginally related. I find it very easy to eat more than I have burned off. No problem.

  2. Thanks for the compliment although photos taken a long time ago.

  3. Can’t believe it worked! Hooray for your machine.

    And with all those ill folks at home, I think you should treat the Pimms as medicinal (Mummy’s sanity-medicine).

    Hope your day is improved by Ikea…

  4. Hi
    Have just found you via comment you left on my daughters blog everything stops for tea. Your bags are fab and I don’t know how you manage to do so much witha teething toddler. I remember those sleepless nights so well and its a long time ago for me. Hope you get to enjoy blogging as much as I do good luck Mary
