Hi all. The time of the year has come when we make those resolutions, to be better people, to drink less, to exercise more, to be that person you really want to be or whatever resolutions you’ve made.
I don’t make resolutions. My theory for some years has been that I am always striving to be the best me that I can be, I don’t want to make a big deal for New Year or Lent.
Over the last 12 months I’ve gained a few pounds, I’ve ‘broken-up’ with the scale, I seem to be finding ‘me’ again. That girl who is fun, is part of the crowd, is kind and will do anything for anyone who so much as gives her the time of day.
For too long I’ve been afraid of being that person – I don’t measure up; I can’t put myself forward because someone out there will do it better; I want to do kind and helpful things, but chicken out because it might not be good enough or might not be well received.
Now, I’ve started to put myself forward for stuff at work; I take homemade goodies to friends when they are under the weather; I bought a few extra Christmas presents for people when I saw something I knew they would like; I’ve tried to make dreams come true.
So why is there a part of me which longs to be that skinny, afraid girl who was constantly measuring herself against other people and finding herself wanting?
I guess that is the nature of the Eating Disorder. It always finds me wanting. However, as I’ve broken so many habits this year, I guess that voice will get quieter as the real me shines through.
I wish you all the best for 2015 – may it be a happy, healthy year for you and I hope you make all your dreams come true! xxx
Hey hey! Happy Hump Day! It’s so close to Christmas I can almost taste it… just 3 days of work to go!!
As you will have seen I have been to many parties lately, with Christmas coming and Ben’s 30th last weekend it’s been a party riot. So what have I been eating? Well, I’ve not been consistent with taking photos – sometimes the food is so good it makes me forget to be a good blogger 🙂 But here’s a ‘taste’ for What I ate Wednesday Continue reading
Hi all. Happy Monday.
This weekend Ben turned 30. After the Surprise party last weekend we had another full weekend of celebrations 🙂 Once with the gym crew, and a family meal.

Ben has a big birthday next weekend, I’ve had in my mind an idea for a surprise party for the last two years – yes years! – and it all came together.
As if that wasn’t enough, I attended a second surprise party (and made the cake) and spent 4 hours taking part in a ‘Get in the Picture’ nativity scene with Exeter Vineyard Church – what more could a girl ask for???
I’ve slacked off somewhat with WIAW – I’ve been so busy. Then I forget to take photos. This week is no different on that front – but at least I’ve managed to get this written up – sort of. Forgive me.
As you know, I hosted a Murder Mystery at the weekend – so here is my food from the day:
I bought some Coconut yogurt from the Coconut Collaborative – I usually eat Co Yo, so it was good to try something different. It came in such gorgeous packaging, and I loved the little packet of seeds that were folded into the cardboard outer.
