I MUST MAKE A START ON THE WASHING UP
Becky and Mike set off around 10am to start their journey home to Sussex. They were breaking their journey in Loughborough to have a quick lunch at Mike's parents house. I heard from Becky later that they had arrived home at around 4.40pm.
After my visitors had gone I went back to bed for a couple of hours. Then, after eating my breakfast, I did make a start on this massive pile of washing up. I hate washing up and when I get my new kitchen there will definitely be a dishwasher. My blip shot is my contribution to the Mono Monday challenge which today has the word " Start " as the theme. Thanks to Skeena for hosting.
At 3pm I started listening to the football on the radio - Newcastle were playing away at Stoke. It was a much more entertaining match then the one Becky, Mike and I endured on Saturday. Newcastle actually scored a goal and won the match 1 - 0.
I've had a really lazy quiet day today after the full on days while Becky and Mike were here. The house seems empty and I really miss having them around.
I didn't go to slimming group this evening. I have put on so much weight over the Christmas and New Year festivities that I will be well out of my target range. I will start back " on plan " tomorrow and hopefully the pounds will start to come off so I can return to group in a few weeks time.
Fireworks have just started going off nearby - first I have heard to celebrate this New Year. Tino was outside in the enclosure but I have brought him in just in case he gets frightened.
Apologies for lack of comments - I will try and find time to check out everyone's recent blips and get up to date.
