Day 85 -16 Good Friday
Hi all on this uncharacteristically gorgeous Good Friday! Hope you've all been out enjoying the sunshine.
I was up bright and early for a run with Shelley and Fran. We went round the long route which I have been doing for the last few weeks but which they haven't done before. It went very well and we all felt suitably virtuous by 11 when we'd finished. I then had a look through my summer stuff to see what if anything I can get into. I have to say the picking were decidedly poor. As you can see, D and I had a great laugh at the sight of me in my size 24 shorts from last summer!!
Thank God I'm not fitting those ever again! I think I had better get out and buy a mini capsule wardrobe for the summer or at least the next few weeks. I'm into cheap size 18's now (ie Primark/Matalan etc) so it shouldn't break the bank. You never know, I might even be able to find an M&S 16 I can squeeze into??
Anyway, I went shopping for nice food for D. He's said he doesn't want an Easter Egg (not a big chocolate fan) but he's bored of his own cooking and has made a request for some favourites - spaghetti, roast chicken and trifle. I'm sure that can be arranged so have purchased the necessaries and will cook for him (as he's being so good!) over the weekend.
We then spent the rest of the day in the garden - D making a start on the footpath and me trimming the hedge and generally tiding up. We're towards the end of a major re-landscaping of the garden and really want to get it done over the next couple of months. I will post before and after pictures at some stage as it has been a major endeavour and we've done it all ourselves (well, mostly D to be honest). It's a necessary step in the "Moving to France" project so we've got renewed vigour now that spring has arrived.
Anyway, off to the pub to see some people I haven't seen for a few weeks - hope they can see the difference. Charlotte is pregnant so we're going in opposite directions!
Have a great weekend everyone and keep it up.
