Hello again. A very happy Royal Wedding/ Bank Holiday evening to you. I was adamant that I wasn't going to be too absorbed by the whole shebang but I've been drawn in - and actually really enjoyed witnessing another part of Brit history.
It didn't help matters that I've developed a throat infection over the last couple of days and my joints are so painful I can hardly move (dunno what that connection is!!) so I spent the morning groaning on the sofa! As today is the first day of ten days' hols then I wasn't best pleased to kick it off in such a crap way, but all the same, grateful for the fact that I could just hibernate here at home watching all the pomp and ceremony on the telly.
My favourite parts of the day were when William mouthed 'you look beautiful' to his bride. A bit of an ahhhh moment for the nation I feel. And the second was the use of all the natural greenery in the Abbey - I have to say that that appealed to me very much. And... of course.. the newly weds driving back home in Daddy's vintage Aston, complete with tacky ballons and a Just Wed sign!! How completely NORMAL it was!!! I for one really like Kate and think she and Wills will be good ambassadors for us Brits.
Enough of that now then - although I enjoyed what I watched I'm not relishing the prospect of having to live, eat and breathe the same footage on every channel and in every newspaper now for weeks!!
When I met my partner last year I had recently lost 3 stones and was feeling pretty good. He moved in in November and we're really happy. He's a brilliant cook and as he works nights then he has his main meal with me when I get home from work. He cooks for us all every evening which is fantastic cos I don't have to think about it...but.... he plates up my meals to match his - which are HEWOOOGE!! And of course they're so delish that I find myself clearing my plate! The weight is creeping back on and I can ill afford to gain any more. I simply do not need as much food as a manual worker and I've had to take matters into my own hands and gently tell him that I'm going to have to plan my meals from here on in. He will of course support me so ... watch this space!!
See you tomorrow!!
