Rain Thursday

Good Morning J-land, feeling rather guilty today  I have not been doing my regular entries and don't like to miss days.  Its a rotten morning here in Tayside heavy drizzle and a bit of wind.  We were up in Perth doing the usual yesterday again never bought anything of consequence just have not seen anything that has taken my fancy at all, its probable because I am carrying a bit too much weight and I don't want to try anything on just now. Lost 2lbs last week so I have hade a start but boy have I got a long way to go.  If I could grow about 5 inch I would look fine but being short it make it look worse. The town was very quiet yesterday it seems strange after all the rushing about before Christmas. I remember well January was a very long month when we were working waiting for payday as Stuart was monthly paid and in December you always were paid early so it made things a bit tight to say the least.  When were sorting out our pensions we chose to have our State pension weekly and that works out great then Stuarts private pension is monthly, so it all works out well.  Stuart has been out this morning putting 4 new tyres on the car so that that done for a long time we are fortunate here we have a tyre depot that does really good deals so we always go there.  Are still playing the same Bookworm and we are now over two million shows how bad the weather has been for us to have all this time to play games, you are really lucky if you can get a few minutes to walk round the garden to see how the bulbs are coming on. Thing are looking not too bad out there some of the bulbs are through and I have a few winter pansies out and one or two Polyanthus but a little sun would not go wrong. Hope you all have a pleasant day, love,

Hiya, know what you mean by the long wait...Rob not paid till next week and he has not been paid since Dec 19th!!! I am losing well also, but who needs a diet at the moment, not me!

Well, if you have lost two pounds, you are doing very well. Do not feel guilty about not doing your journal every day.  I have cut down on mine, after nineteen months it is difficult keeping it going every day so I am just posting now when I have something to say. I know people who only do their journal once a week and some only a couple of times per month.  You are right about not being able to get in the garden and now they say we are going to get weather from Russia next week and it will be bitterly cold, at least if it snows (doubtful) it will brighten everything up instead of these endless grey days.

We've had a very mild dry day here, but no sign of the sun. Friend told me this afternoon that it has been the darkest January on record so far. Will have to hop off here and do my sun dance.

Two pounds is a good weight to lose in one week....just think if you could lose that amount every week for a year  you would be really slim...lol...It is good that you both like playing games - it passes the time when the weather is too bad to venture out...Ally

Hi Joan,   two million???   I am so embarrassed, I`ve not got further than 600,000 odd....and I thought I did well, I`ll hang my head in shame and vow to do better....lol!  The weather here is stiil very grey and drizzly, it`s become quite windy here and that probably will mean more rain! :o(
