Hello peeps how are you all on this wintery morning, well it is here in the UK lol
Saturday was a great day, I went for a small walk as it wasnt to cold, but still cold enough to cause a few problems but i just thundered on, the air smelt like christmas snow, yep you can definitely smell christmas now, although this one is going to be much quieter than previous ones, im still feeling excited, but i refuse to put up the tree yet 🎄 I have seen a few houses all decked out and looking fantastic, but i think a month is long enough to have your house decked out for me. To warm myself up i had a highlights fudge hot chocolate with a squirt of cream and mini marshmallows.
I have booked my holiday for next year, 3 weeks in the sunshine i can not wait to get these bones warmed up, yay. Although it is going to feel a bit strange as we will have no children with us, it will be our 1st summer holiday child free, our summer holidays have always been with our youngest and a grandchild or 2, but the youngest will be working in America so although she will be having an amazing time, there is still a pang of guilt in there, I ordered a couple more dresses online in the sales but a smaller size, my excuse for shopping was well i needed an incentive to keep on the right track, but i didn’t really have an excuse for the boots i bought though 🤣
Food wise on saturday was good, i didn’t cook a big meal as i was to tired so instead we had oven chips with chinese style chicken bites, i even had enough calories left to have some bread and butter, it’s been a while since iv had a chip butty and I thoroughly enjoyed it, guilt free.
Now im not sure if it was the cheats chinese mix i used or the chicken chunks, the chicken was a different brand to what i usually use, and it tasted like fake chicken if you understand that, but i have been up all night with an upset tummy, i gave up running down and up to the loo so came downstairs just before 5am and snuggled onto the sofa popped a christmas film on the tv and tried to relax, I tried going back to bed at 7.30am but the cramps just kept me awake, so in the end i decided to give up come back downstairs grab a coffee and chat to you lovely people.
Plans for the day ( even tho my plans don’t go to plan ha ha), I’m going to pop off in a minute and pop the chicken in the oven (oh my im loving my oven by the way) start prepping the veggies for sunday lunch, I think neil has plans to bake a cake today so i will have to factor those calories in to my day.
And on that note while your singing away i will leave now and head to the kitchen, chat to you soon.
Wherever you are whatever your doing smile XOXO
