That Pinterest Wardrobe! #Motivation

Admit it, you all have one, right? A Pinterest Board with all the clothes you'd love to wear if you could just drop those last few pounds? It's there... next to the dream house and all the things you promise yourself you'll make one day.

I certainly have one! It's full of all the things I want to wear to the Office when I go back in May. When I'm at home with the kids I am always going to be a jeans & t-shirt mum. I have four boys. Boys are messy. Being glamorous is not something I want to be bothered with then. And I rarely hit the pubs and bars any more - again with a nursling and 3 older kids, finding the time, opportunity, energy, and money all at the same time is a truly rare thing! So my best chance to look dressed up is at work. I have a nice little office job, it's clean, tidy, with little walking involved (part of why I'm over weight I guess) so I can get away with FAB clothes! And shoes!

I am LOVING looking at clothes that will suit a slimmer me. I am pinning away at bright colours and bold patterns that I've not felt comfortable in since I gained weight. I'm finding outfits that shout LOOK AT ME instead of ones that help be fade into the back ground. I honestly had no idea I was swerving so many things I liked because of my size until I stopped doing it!

There are soooo many gorgeous things out there that will look awesome on the hourglass figure that is emerging from under all this excess!

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. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
