Day 92 -9

Had a day working from home as I was due to leave for London in the evening and felt guity about leaving the dog all weekend how sad is that?! Worked quite hard but I must admit that I headed into town around lunchtime and hit Matalan!! Stocked up on the white jeans and a few tops, and some cropped khaki trousers and some shoes and some more shoes.....I couldn't seem to stop but only spent about £50 so not too bad!! It's a revelation being able to fit into anything I try on. In fact the white jeans were size 16!!!

I also had a quick hair cut and new nail polish so am proper girly now.

Then the long drive down to London town -which would have been fine if people hadn't kept phoning me everytime I made a quick stop for petrol or to check directions - had 3 conversations adding about an hour to my journey 'cos each time I had to stop as no hands free!

Natalie was well impressed by the weightloss as she hasn't seen me since before Christmas. We had a look as some serious chin laden photos from my last trip to the Smoke. Can't believe I didn't realise how bad I'd got.

She's just come back frm the trip of a lifetime in South-east Asia and Australia so we got about half way thorugh her fantastic photos. Awesome - I must go!! That is going to be the aim for a couple of years' time.

Anyway, got up early this morning, Saturday and went for a jog. Boring really 'cos no hills and no green - just pounding the streets of Kensington. Still 35 minutes and feel very fresh. Now checking out blogs while Nat gets herself up and ready (not a morning person). and then off to the spa!!

Small things to be happy about:- Nat's skimpy guest towel wrapped all the way round me!! And, I could fit into the Hilton bathrobe on the back of the door (don;t think she nicked - think she used to be a chambermaid there years ago....!!). Its a brave new world indeed

Size 16 jeans woooohoooooo!!!

Bet it was a great feeling seeing your friend again and watching her see the change in you.

Enjoy the spa and the rest of your weekend --- oh the pampering :)

See, I told you it wasn't so much fun pounding the streets of ol' London Town......

I think I must make a trip to Matalan. I normally pick up a few things for Lizzie there but hardly ever look for myself. Maybe now's the time.

Hope you had an enjoyable spa. Have a safe journey home.

Lesley, I've just seen your comment re my comment a few days ago about us all meeting up sometime down the line. I'm glad you agree and I think we can definitely put us two down at the top of the list. Me? Have car, will travel. We'll have to put it to everyone else soon.

Enjoy your weekend.

I think when people who haven't seen us for a long time comment on the weight loss its a real boost.
