Ok so I am crap at updating………

I am not the best when it comes to writing on a regular basis but having realised it is almost a month since I wrote anything I thought it was about time I did something about it………..

Still cycling found it hard going last weekend but that could be because I felt rough………..still enjoying it and I am not falling off as much but still have big problems with hills which I must overcome………..I just don’t seem to like going down anything too steep…………it scares the living daylights out of me watching Tim go down them sometimes and it really puts me off………….think I have mastered most of the uphill runs we do but do struggle sometimes…………we have a couple of books on cycle routes, one for this area and one that is UK wide…………………..

Still working hard at losing weight………..and it is sort of working……………finding low calorie warm lunches has been fun……….although we have a microwave at work I prefer not to use it so have found some noodle/pasta/cous cous snacks you make in a mug………..and very nice they are too……………I am also planning a Slimming World Christmas menu full of no syn goodies and low syn snacks to have……………….

Still working hard but did take a network day yesterday to finish my pressie shopping………..well almost……….just three secret santa pressies and a big thing for him indoors to get………….the kids stuff is either here or on its way and they are in for a treat…………..I love looking for ideas for them all the time and hopefully they will like what we have chosen……………..

I have a lot more enthusiasm for Christmas this year than I have had for the past few years………….I love cooking dinner on the big day………I love when the tree goes up which happens in the couple of days after the kids break up from school…………..in fact the only thing I hate about Christmas is wrapping the presents……………….it does my head in as I can never do them tidily……………there always seems to be too much paper and one end is always longer than the other…………how can anyone wrap stuff neatly……………Need to get started on the cards this weekend too………Ryan designed one at school and we have had that printed and we now have them to send out..he did say that he thought Santa looked like a devil but I think it looks sweet……………

And I shall leave you with a comment that Ryan made the other day…………

Ryan…Mum I know why we have presents at Christmas…………

Me……Ok and how do you know why………….

Ryan…Because when the Three Kings visited baby Jesus they took him Gold, Frankenstein and Myrrh………….

Cue me collapsing in a fit of hysterics……………….

And on that note………….Good Night…………..
