21 and 100




Aged 4 months







Aged 8 months




Aged 12 months

Now 
I may be biased but my baby boy was utterly adorable. He still is! He was 21 on the 21st April 2018. I did coffee and cake for anyone who would like to come and it was knackering for me, but enjoyable for everyone else! 
For the first time in forever, I baked. And I really enjoyed myself- I was very restrained and didst not lick my fingers at all! 
Birthday cake - plain with fresh cream was the request.






I also made a huge toffee fudge traybake and some SW friendly lemon, coconut and blueberry muffins. Best laugh of the day goes to Nanna V for discussing pet dogs with my friends and my two offspring. Nanna V said her neighbour had a poodle I think it was.  Oh, said my friend, we've got a cockerpoo.

Ahhh yes, said Nanna V, all knowingly, its one of those mixed race dogs!!!!!!!!! 



Everyone admired my bargainous 20p roses! 

It was a lovely day and Mr 21 was thoroughly spoilt! Hopefully he will remember it fondly. The day his mother made him stay in Aunt Ressie's Shady Pines home for the elderly ( all the Nannas and  grandads sat in the lounge ) and wouldn't let him go to the pub with his friends!!! 


So.... at my 38th weigh in tonight at SW, I've lost another 2lbs taking my total to a 
BONKERS ONE HUNDRED POUNDS! 
100lbs
Doesn't seem possible or real! I celebrated with a hi if chocolate bar for 3syns! A bit of a ways to go yet but I'm taking it one week at a time, a pound at a time. No rush! 



I've pinned out my first Luna. I was going to cut out tonight and make a start, but I wanted to post this blog and then sleep. It's been a long hard day at work today. It's ok, I can wait. 

Hope everyone is well. 

Lots of love from

My new long service award seat is up and has been sat upon in my garden!
