The Festival of Loz!

.......I love my birthday and it is referred to around here as the Festival of Loz ..........because it IS all about me isn't it??? LOL.......my birthday was yesterday but on Sunday most of the family got together for a bbq........


Unfortunately my eldest daughter Jo and her family were unable to make it on Sunday......we missed you Jo!
This week has been a busy one at work........and I am looking forward to a week's break over Christmas..............I think I am almost ready for Christmas...depending on the definition of "ready"...LOL........Christmas has come early for Mark....he took possession of the keys for his new house this morning....and the big move is planned for this weekend.....a very exciting time for him!! Speaking of exciting.....the Prince has managed to come up with yet another fab birthday gift..........Nev the Nikon has joined the family!......I have been busy reading the manual and playing ..........I am sure we are going to have loads of fun together....!! I know I am spoiled rotten!! Thanks Prince!!!

It was weigh day at Curves on Wednesday - I had indulged in some treats on the weekend....but took it easy for the next couple of days......and Happy Birthday........I lost another kg!! just over 8kgs gone......pretty happy with that .......looking at the big picture is a bit daunting so I am taking it one kg at a time........!

I wish I could report on all the stitching that has taken place......but unfortunately there hasn't been any!.....maybe over the Christmas break....................

'Til next time.............................Lorraine

Hey Loz, Happy Birthday!!! What a lovely photo of you and your chickens....lovely looking bunch you are. Well done on the 8kgs .... fantastic effort!!!! And congrats to Mark moving in to his new home. It will be very quiet without him. My house is much quieter without my DD .... but I have gained a sewing room which is still very much a work in progress. After xmas I intend to get it all set up!! Have a good week. Cheers Sue
