I'm going to try harder...

Hi to anyone still out there!

Sorry I've been away so long, but I am going to try harder :)

We now have a gorgeous and very precious grandson and Daisy is a big sister! 

I feel ready to blog again now.

In other news...I am trying to lose weight and be more healthy. This has not been a thrifty experience so far so I'm really looking at ways to lose weight without the shopping bill going through the roof! If there's any interest, I will share my thrifty meals and recipes with you. 

I hope you will join me as I get back into the swing of things...

  3. Hi Mandy,
    glad youre back with us, i have been checking in daily to see if there was any news.
    Big congratulations on being a grandma again, bet Daisy is thrilled, hope everything is going well with you all and good luck on the weightloss.
    My daughter started slimming world about 10 weeks ago and was doing brilliantly, losing 2 1/2 stones but we had a bit of a falling out recently and she went a bit off track for a couple of weeks, we are OK now but she had put 5lb back on, hopefully now im back to helping her with her meal prep and planning she can lose it again and continue.
    i will be popping in again now i know youre blogging again.
    take care jane xx

    1. Thanks Jane!

      Yes she's a great big sister and loves him to bits.

      It's very time consuming prepping meals but if you don't then it's so easy to grab something quick that's not healthy.

      Sorry to hear of your fall out and glad it's sorted.

      I'm busy but blogging keeps me focused so that's the plan go keep me in check. Just got to remember to photograph my food before eating it! Xx
