Stay out of the kitchen!!!


Who else gets like this?

You go into the kitchen for one reason... like get your kid some juice, or pin something to the notice board, or put the washing on... and come out again eating something.

You'd never consciously planned to get something to eat, but i just happened. You were there... the food was there... it just happened.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person this happens too. For ages it was "just one spoon of nutella" as I passed through the kitchen for any reason. For my Hubby is was "just one bit of cheese" when ever he was in the kitchen. And for both of us there was the irresistible draw of what ever snacks our eyes fell upon. It still is now! We've swapped usual junk for low fat/low calorie options, but the habit it still there.

So this is how we're trying to beat it (since bricking up the kitchen door isn't really an option):


  • Buying less of the tempting stuff (small amount for kids only)
  • Putting away out of sight and easy reach any & all treats and junk
  • Leaving fresh fruit in plain sight, if we HAVE to munch something it's healthy & zero points
  • Getting a drink instead of a snack

What tips do you have?




Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views.

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…
