Short Thoughts 8/3/15

Occasional Insights into my Brain… 

Short Shorts and tights combo is not a look I want to replicate

90s is now considered “vintage” – I wish I’d kept my cullottes and a pair of kickers shoes now

And how old does that make you feel when 90s is like what the 70s (or 40s/50s/60s depending on age)…was when we were growing up…..mind boggles

I broke my necklace, had tea accidentally spilt on me, and nearly walked into the gents toilets yesterday but still it was a good day

I’ve learnt how to take nice photos so you will be astounded by my photography skills (see below) but I have to lie everything flat including children


Sometimes you meet a few people  and they instantly make you laugh and you know you could be good friends but you hope you didn’t come across as a complete raving idiot

Bryan Ferry hasn’t aged well. Some things are best left in the past

Yesterday I referred to Lionel Ritchie as a historical insignificance, which I now regret

Staying focused and true to yourself is the best way to be.

I’m embracing happy 🙂

Occasional Insights Into my Brain

Hot chocolate makes a terrible mess
and looks horrifying at 2am when your child’s just been sick.  Maybe stick to clear fluids after 6pm.

I can go a week without a takeaway and diet coke and I feel soooo much better

There’s something irrisistable about chalk and a chalk board…..

Cauliflower is the new kale

Still don’t get the whole Sam Smith thing

Looking forward to a day at Blog On Cymru this Saturday …..With added wine and me time.  If you’re there say hi to me. 

Short Thoughts 10/2/15

Today I am going to try and be less angry, and eat less chocolate.

I need to think of chocolate as poison. Evil poison.

I mustn’t let silly little things get to me so much.

My other half put the washing on yesterday but left the washing liquid out, so now I have nothing to wear, unless I want to wear smelly wet clothes

I don’t rate Sam Smith all that much.

So tired and my brain is scrambled.

Chinese is one of your five-a-day, right?

This time two years ago, I was as big as a whale, overdue. Nothing’s changed that much.

Did I mention I was tired?


Short thoughts 5/2/14

Almost daily insights into my brain…..

I found out today what Beyoncé was warbling about when she was talking about drinking watermelon. Urgh.

Yesterday I realised I hadn’t got dressed, washed or brushed my teeth today. At about 6pm. Nice.

I feel like I meet so many people who I just KNOW I would be such good friends with, if only they didn’t live bloody miles away. Sometimes I feel lonely.

Marvellous creations popping candy is my nemesis. And probably the reason I’m still fat, tbh.

It hit me today that my little girl is 2 this month. Where the hell did 2 years go. No, seriously. Where did they go?

I haven’t sorted out a birthday party or anything. I’m pretty shit at that sort of thing. I sort of wish I could forget about it, really.

I want to do so many things I just need to actually do them, book tickets, make arrangements, live my life.

I keep writing 01/14 when I write the date, I can’t get used to it. I’m living in the past.

Almost daily insights into my mind….

Last night went well other than Bubs falling asleep, rolling out of her bed and then falling asleep underneath it. Gave us a bit of a shock when we couldn’t find her…

I thought I’d try myfitnesspal yesterday. I ended the day -245 calories, which to be honest felt like a victory.

Sort of a bad start to the healthy eating today, only having croissants to eat. That sounds much more indulgent than the reality.

Having a small child wipe their snotty face all over yours is something that I can never come to terms with.

Looking forward to a day trip to peppa pig world probably indicates my current state of mind.

I really should try and make more friends. I need to get out more. I need to be able to have an alcoholic drink in a socially acceptable situation every now and again.
