Shopping, Slimming and Thanks!

Well a successful day so far, went to Swindon to get myself some trousers, well jogging bottoms actually! I kept losing my trousers on my 2 mile walk to the garage yesterday and it was really annoying! I decided on jogging bottom because they have elastic in and should last a bit longer!

This was me before I lost weight, at my sisters wedding 2005! I think I may have put on some more after this photo.......

but look at this (to do this I worked out how to use the timer on the camera, cool hey!)

I think you may notice a slight difference LOL!!!!!!!

Anyway now I can fit up here now......

its only small but boy do we pack stuff in, in our loft!! I had to go up to get decorations for Kathryn, I have boxes of them, I'm always changing the colours so I got the lilac, purple and silver down for her plus a couple of sets of lights! All she will need to get is a tree, she has a Homebase nearby and a new boyfriend who I hope will be kind enough to carry it for her!!!!!!!

Now a BIG Thank you to Mrs Nesbitt who has saved the day and made me a very happy person! If you recall I was not happy with the hamper I had done for my mum and partner Bruce! So I did as suggested by Mrs Nesbitt now lets see if you all think it is an improvement!!

So from this.....................

to this..................

I think its a great improvement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Libby looks fantastic!

I LOVE packing things up, just as much as planning & creating.

Well Done You!

That hamper is a big improvment. Well done with losing the weight, it can be a hard thing to achieve.

Well done Libby with the sliming :-}

I love to do baskets too.

What did you use to make it red instead of white?

Take care

The red shredded paper sets everything off in your hamper really well - Mrs N is a trained artist - and so 'giving' with her help and advice isn't she.

Have a great time with your family this weekend.

Looking forward to hearing all about it when you get back xxx

Thank you all for your lovely comments. Thank you too Mrs N! Definately no artist in me! Never could put colours together!!! The Red Shredded paper is just the job!
Welcome Bob, you live in a beautiful part of the country and thanks for your comments! More to come off yet I think LOL!!!
