It's Just Dawned On Me

There are 31 weeks to my birthday, if I lose an average of 2lbs per week for all the 31 weeks, I will be 62 lbs lighter, and weighing 11 Stone 9lbs !  Wow, what an incentive !
I have to get over this weekend first, it's the band contest tomorrow night, and a Jubilee street party on Saturday. Sunday we are at a christening ,but then it's OK, as we are both working Mon and Tues.

Day Two

Everything is going ticketty boo ! Had 10 points left last night, and I have 12 left at the moment today, I must as I have just read, stop eating diet food and eat proper food to use points !
the weather here today has been so hot again, but overcast now, and i reckon a great big thunderstorm can't be far away !

Oh Wow !

First day back on the WW Wagon, all going ok. I had cereal for brekky, then nowt until I got home at 12.30, as I was on a very early. I think that was the first time ever I have not eaten on my break. I did nibble some WW Orange and Lemon drops, with the inevitable bad wind to follow shortly after !

I got feedback today on my interview last week, and It has blown me away, and given me real encouragement to keep learning and to reapply when a new vacancy arises.

Oh Bugger !

I didn't get it, and to top it off had an accident with a car on a local roundabout on Saturday !
We have bit the bullet again tonight, and rejoined WW. I weighed in at 16.1.5 , and in typical style, I start as a bank holiday weekend approaches !!

Been here so many times in the last 3 years, will this time be different ? I hope so, time will tell !

I think it went well

But time will tell !  It was more like an informal chat.
The weather is amazing at the moment, long may it continue !

Just an hour to go !

And I will be having my interview. I have just seen one of the other interviewes at work, and he has a civvy shirt and tie on. I asked, and was told it's full uniform for interviews, so he may lose a mark there !
Blackpool was a scream, and the weather was nice too.

here are a few pictures.

Nearly Here

Well I am on a semi late today , then off to our annual trip to Blackpool tomorrow, then a late on Monday.
Then it is D Day, I have a split shift, and in the middle of that. my interview. I have learnt my drivers hours, but talking to a friend yesterday, who has just been made up to inspector on our rival bus service, she fired a load of questions I may be asked, of which most I didn't know the answer. I have found some answers, but need more input before Tuesday. But - hey ho, what will be will be !

A Week Today

And I will be 1.5 hours away from my interview ! It will be almost over, bar the shouting !
Elsewhere we had a great day on Sunday, seeing my eldest off, he leaves for Canada today.
We have vouchers to rejoin WW out of the weekends papers, I just need to find a time when me and Angie will both be able to attend.

Here are a few pics from Sunday !

Learning learning

Well I have clocked up over 12 hours in the traffic office already. The guy who is teaching me is really good, and I am getting my head around driving hours. I have already resigned myself to the fact this is a learning curve,and if I am unsuccessful this time I will just continue to learn for next time. My nieces 21st was fantastic,and went without a hitch. Much multimedia was captured,and can be seen on YouTube !

Wow !

Just got my letter today, I have passed the tests, and have an interview in a fortnight !
The ongoing silence made me think perhaps it was not to be.
It's quite funny really, as I was dreading the introduction of the eco driver system, yet after using it, think it's the best thing since sliced bread !
At home, we have a nieces 21st to attend Saturday, and an ex member of the family has mistakenly been invited, which is causing some stress, but hopefully it will be fine.

The rash on my arm has completely cleared now, but I am at the Docs Thursday for blood tests, and I am praying to god they don't come back that I am diabetic, glucose intolerant or  have high Cholesterol !
