Something to aim for

We have a wedding to go to this August, and I have the hen night to look forward to as well in July - which is a spar day & night in a hotel (inc a meal we're dressing up for). And what do weddings mean? NEW FROCKS AND SHOES!

I love love LOVE Lindy Bop dresses! I bought a load last year and wear them for work, nights out, special occasions... all sorts of stuff. One of the reasons I want to get my weight down again is that half of the Lindy Bop frocks I bought last year are now too small and I want to get back in to them.

I also love Iron Fist clothes, especially the shoes. Again, I have a few pairs that I manage to team up with my Lindy's. I'm always thrilled when I find a match! Irregular Choice frequently match Lindy's but they are well out of my price range at the moment - I may treat myself to a pair of those when I get to my Goal Weight though.

So last night I ordered these; two Lindy Bops, and two pairs of Iron Fists, roses for the wedding, cherries for the hen night.

The dresses are 14s!

Currently I look best in an 18, and can wear the 16s but they look and feel a little snug. I can't zip up my 14s without fear of popping the seams! It breaks my heart to see them just hanging on the rail, unworn and unloved. I need to get back to a 14, and I need to do it before the middle of July!

Wish me luck?

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.

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
