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…
This year I am definitely going to be sharing my Slimming World journey with you all, my meal plan each week and if the scales were good to me.
As I didn’t really eat slimming world friendly at all over Christmas and new year I have been dreading what the scales are going to say to me on a Friday.
But I’m going to be honest, I’m going to share pictures of my body etc because I think it will help motive myself and hopefully other people.
I want to be healthy for Riley, I want to feel good about myself. I don’t want people to look at me and think ‘she’s fat’ I don’t want my grandad telling me I’ve got three chins either – don’t worry he only jokes, I hope!
So every Friday I will be sharing a weekly slimming world blog post. I will let you know what the scales say and I will be totally honest!
Each Friday after group me and my friend also go to subway for lunch, its something we both look forward to each week! A footlong and a pack of cookies, its literally making my mouth water just thinking about the cookies right now.
So this week, I have lost 1.5lbs!
Quite happy with that tbh, since I went out for tea on Tuesday and had a Pizza Hut so yeah I am happy with that little loss! But I obviously know I would have lost more if I wouldn’t have had the Pizza Hut. Oh and the few little chocolates I’ve been pinching out my box on a night.
So next week I’m going to aim for… 3pounds!!!!! Do you think I’ll be able to do it?
Going to be doing my meal plan for next week tonight and plan some really speedy meals!
Having pizza for tea tonight for my little treat for the weekend!
Have a great Friday guys! x x x x
Riley went back to school yesterday!
I actually set my alarm early to get up and ready before waking Riley up so I was verrrrry organised this morning which is one of my new year resolutions!
I woke him up and told him it was time to go back to school and he burst into tears, saying he didn’t want to leave me. Actually made me abit upset tbh. He gets so used to been at home with me and coco when school breaks up for holidays.
Once we got to school and he saw his friends he was obviously fine.
He managed to have a good day and even did PE outside for a while.
As he was so good his Auntie Alice treated us to Pizza Hut for tea which is his favourite! Who’s favourite tea isn’t pizza!
With me doing slimming world I got a flat bread pizza with lots of salad and it was lovely! Counting my syns for the next two days with that. So I will see what the scales say to me on Friday…. wish me luck!
So its back to the school runs, back to making small talk with the mummies. Haha.

Can you believe it is only 3 more days until Christmas? I can’t!
I have so much wrapping to still do! I’ve not even wrapped half of Riley’s yet let alone my families. So think I will be definitely still wrapping Christmas Eve!!!
I won a photo shoot earlier this December so I picked to have a 3 generation photo shoot with me Riley and my mum. We had our hair and make up done too! Was so nice to have somebody else do my makeup for a change. Wish I would have done my own eyebrows though as the MUA artist only filled in my eyebrows but I prefer them to be popping!
We managed to get some lovely pictures though. Riley wanted to get them all but I didn’t want to be spending loadsssss!!
Have you finished wrapping yet? 🎁
Riley has finally broken up for Christmas! I feel like I can get into the Christina’s spirit now.
Does anybody else keep seeing toys and that for your kids at the shop and buying more and more? Please tell me I’m not the only one!🤦🏼♀️
Christmas came early for Riley today and my wonderful bestie and his little mates. Seeing all their faces light up and be excited for presents could put any scroogeeeeee in the mood for Christmas.
For any pink gin lover this Christmas I would have definitely recommend getting them a personalised sticker for the gin bottle! My friend loved hers! I got mine from eBay and came in no time! You can find some lovely personalised things on eBay for Christmas.
I’ve started wrapping little presents. I need to make a massive start this weekend or I’ll get to Christmas Eve and I’ll still be wrapping presents!
Going to get into the Christmas spirit but stuffing my face with a Chinese tonight with all the trimmings!!!
