Baby's got BACK!

Far too bloody much of it! And rather than being an crappy americanisim for having a big arse, I actually do have a FAT BACK!


The dress is actually a two piece thing. The skirt was a little on the snug side - I could do with losing maybe an inch of my hips. Fine. No problem.

The top, on the other hand, gaps by a MASSIVE 6 - 8 INCHES!!!!!

Heart broken barley covers it.

Now, here's the REAL problem. Because of the embroidery on the dress, it can't be altered. So there are three choices:

  1. Lose 2 stone by June 13 - the final fitting
  2. Have a NEW top made, at great expence
  3. Have an aditional, removable 'panel' made and remove the buttons from the back of the bodice, repacing them with a lace up.
Now, idealy I will lose the 2 stone. But as I have FAILED to lose any weight in the last three weeks there is no way I am banking on that!

Having a new one made is OUT OF THE QUESTION. There is no way I can jusitfy the expence. After all, I am fatter now because I have over indulged myself. Now I am suffering for it. If I had gained weight through something which was not my fault in the slightest, then maybe.... But that's not the case. I am a troff-monster! And lazy too.

So we're having the panel made. It will cost (approx £60.00) but nothing like as much as having a new top made! How it works is this: An additional section is made out of the same fabric. It is fastened into the back of the top where the gap is (with hooks and eyes I think). The buttons on the top are replaced with loops, and the dress is drawn together - very adjustable - with a green 'ribbon' in a corset style. This way, regarless of whether I stay the same shape, lose wight, or (god forbid) GAIN weight, the dress will still fasten and look nice.

However! Tonight I am off to areobics! ALL alcohol and sweet, tempting foods are OFF the menu 7 days a week! It's time to go hard core with the weight loss. It's no longer a case of take my time because I have all the time in the world. I have until the 13th of June to get trim - and STAY TRIM!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
