I woke at 5.35am and I knew I wouldn’t go back to sleep. The daylight creeps in earlier and earlier, and the traffic starts building up. I can only sleep if it is pitch black and deadly quiet. So I lay there dozing for a while, then Tim started snoring, so I decided to get up.
I made a cup of tea, and watched TV for a while, checked my emails, paid a bill on line. After a shower and a bowl of cereal, I’m now fully dressed and it feels like about 2.30pm, but is only 9.15am! It’s going to be a long day…
I shall do some sewing shortly, in the spare room upstairs. I have to measure for some zips for pillow cases I’m making. I also have an order from my grand-daughter to make some new clothes for the dolls which love with me, which she plays with when she visits.
This afternoon I have an optician’s appointment, and won’t be surprised if I need new glasses, my eyes are very bad. I might see if I can get my hair cut too, as I am looking like a mad scientist with white curly hair, and that is not a good look.
Weight loss is still going well – twenty pounds has disappeared somewhere, which is good. My best jeans with Lycra were once skin tight and hurt when I wore them, but now they are falling down over my hips. I’m still missing chocolate, bread, and cheese, but I am determined to keep going. I’ve had no alcohol since January, and I think has really helped, we used to often have a bottle of wine with a meal. A glass of wine is over 100 calories, and a slice of bread is about the same, and cheese has hundreds of calories, so if I can forego these luxuries it will do me good.
I’m also waiting to hear back from the solicitors, who should shortly be giving me a moving date!
