Last Tuesday, 14th May I got the keys to my house. A lot has been done in the past week and lots more money has been spent!
Carpets ordered and paid for which are getting fitted tomorrow!! So exciting!
Rileys new bed has been delivered just needs to be built once the carpets are down.
Got a beautiful corner sofa ordered which will be delivered in 5 weeks hopefully!
Since my side gate was kicked in by stupid kids having nothing better to do my mum and dad bought and fitted my new one today! I had somebody dump a load of rubbish in my back garden on Friday night which pissed me off!!! So had to deal with that which was an absolute joke.
Me and my mum spent one afternoon just cleaning the outside of the front and back doors.
I spent one morning cleaning all the windows which were black! Honestly looked like they had never been opened before. Was shocking tbh. And then cleaned the inside of the front and back doors.
The decorator has been there everyday since I got the keys turning what was a blank white canvas into a beautiful colourful home!
I ordered and paid for blinds for the full house which were fitted on Monday! Honestly the blinds made the house look so much more like a house if that makes sense.
Today I’ve cleared the horrible gravel from my pathway. The gravel leaded right up to the front door. I didn’t want Riley to fall on it when it rained either so thought it was best to have a nice little path we could walk on.
The back garden needs a proper gut clean aswell now. The window frames need cleaning!
When the time comes where I’ve got abit more money behind me because atm I’m bloody skint! 😭 I’ll get my bed but right now that’s not something I need as I am taking the bed I have at my mums with me.
Most importantly everything is coming together now nicely!
Move in day Saturday…
So last week I got the news I had been waiting for for over a year now! I finally have a house!
I am so excited. I’ve been buying things for my house for a little under 6 months now! Every penny I have spare has gone towards things for our house.
Just me Riley and Coco and we are so excited.
Obviously this house is a council house. I know it might be a shock to some people and I know some people can be very judgemental when it comes to council houses but it’s not what they look like on the outside, it’s how they look on the inside and I already have so many beautiful ideas!
The house is currently in repairs due to the previous tenants trashing the house. Garden fence all needs replacing and a total new one putting in.
I can’t wait to put my own personal mark on the place and I’m looking forward to doing all the decorating more then anything!
Riley of course has asked for a superhero bedroom and with him been my very own superhero he is definitely having that! We have lots of toys to take with us so it’s finding space for them too again so that should be fun.
I will try and do weekly house updates as much as I can. I just hope the houses isn’t in repairs for too long as I’m toooo excited to move in!
Here is number 59!
It’s the first weigh in of February this week! February is a hard month for me as I have so much going on it tends to be harder to diet when I’m busy.
I have my mums birthday and planned meals out, rileys party and birthday all in the same week so that makes my diet even harder!
Sooooooo… I have tried my best this week to get that bigger weight loss!
I’ve been having my healthy A choices and B choice.
I’ve really enjoyed having my B choice as a weightwatchers wrap with chicken and salad for dinner. It’s different from a boring sandwich!
I’ve also up’t my exercise aswell this week! I’ve been taking Coco round our block – round the housing easte – twice each time I have taken her for a walk. It’s really helped and given me such a bought I think.
I’ve been having a few slimming world meals too. I did go out for a meal with Riley and my sister on Monday at Frankies and Bennies but I got a lovely chicken salad with no dressing so the syns value didn’t work out that high at all.
I also didn’t have a takeaway last Friday either so saved a lot of my syns not having that which worked out better.
So last week I gained 1.5lbs.
I LOST 4.5lbs!!!!!
Oh my god!
I am so pleased with myself.
So proud too!
Bloody damn well deserve it after all my effort this week.
I can’t wait to see what I do next week. Definitely going to plan ahead and keep on track with my exercise!
Okay so last week I lost a lovely 2 pounds!!! Yeeey I was so happy and definitely planned for another loss this week too but, how I failed this week…
So I bought more slimming world meals on the Saturday morning, ready for my week ahead I knew what I was having. But, Riley started to feel unwell in the afternoon. He was sick, then the diarrhoea started. After he was sick he felt better but he was sleeping a lot that afternoon so I still decided I was going to go out for a meal and cinema like I’d planned.
I went to go to Glass! Wouldn’t waste your time btw.
As soon as I got home I went to check in Riley, as I always do. Riley had had an accident in his sleep, the smell was terrible! After changing his bed and giving him a wash. I was awake most the night, humming and aaarrring weather or not to ring 111 and get some advice. I decided to sleep on it and ring them in the morning…
The Sunday morning he wasn’t much better. He wasn’t eating only drinking, the sickness and diarrhoea was still there and he looked so pale. I decided to ring 111 and get advice. They told me to get to the hospital A&E within the hour. Obviously I was emotionally eating! My sister bless her brought me food to keep me going but because I was tired I just wanted to say rubbish so I did.
Turned out Riley had a terrible bug. Didn’t send him to school Monday and Tuesday. So I carried on eating rubbish followed by more rubbish and more rubbish! Sugar drinks the lot. Anything to keep my energy up because I was just so tired!
Wednesday I didn’t feel that great I was light headed so more sugar drinks and chocolate was my only answer.
Then Thursday I was blessed with my star week. So as you can imagine I’ve had a rubbish week. Urgh.
Sooooooooo… this week the scales said… I had put 1.5lbs ON!
Which I was expecting.
This week I’m going to try my best to get that off and a little more! I’m going to plan ahead. Plan my meals. Plan my snacks. Plan everything I can! I’m going to really push myself.
Wish me luck!!
