The New Me

Well I did it!!!! I have been saying for months that I want my hair cut, it was driving me insane!!!! Dry, fly away and frizzy. I had tried treatments and potions and lotions but nothing helped so I finally got the big cut!
I have gone from this..

To this...

And when it is straightened

I'm not sure about it at the moment. It is a big change and taking a bit to get used to. So much easier to do though!!!! And oh the money I will save on conditioner!!! My son (aged13) said I looked like a nana when he first saw it but then later said it was growing on him. My husband David said it will take a while to get used to it, but that it was ok. My daughter (aged 4) just wants to know what I did with my hair.

I have all of a sudden become very aware of clothes. I think because I have been a larger size clothes haven't meant that much to me because there wasn't a lot to choose from in a size to fit me, but now I can buy nice, exciting clothes!!! I love shopping now!!! I even bought my first short skirt!!! OMG!!!!

It is choc brown corduroy and I love it with my boots!! I know for some it's not short but for me it is! I also found this tunic/dress that I fell in love with, it is so soft and floaty...

My poor husband doesn't know what's happened to me!!! He is used to me wearing track pants and being very dull, now I show a bit of leg and wear makeup and do my hair. Bring on the clothes!!!!

Happy Mother's Day

I just wanted to say that I hope all you mums out there had a terrific day yesterday and that your kids spoilt you and made you feel like queens (even though you should feel that way every day, if you have kids or not). My darling 13 year old son Spencer made me breakfast in bed, and what a breakfast it was!!! Toasted English muffin with smoked salmon, poached egg and Hollandaise sauce!!! YUMMY!!!!
He did such a good job, so proud of my boy. Spen and his sister Samantha (along with my husband David), gave me a bottle of Vera Wang perfume, Princess, smells divine and I love the bottle...

They spent the rest of day looking after me and making sure I relaxed. I am a very lucky lady indeed. I love my family so very much xxx

I also have to share with you my two new loves...

First my boots, yes I know that may seem strange to some of you, but when you have been over weight most of you adult life and had fat calves like me finding boots that fit those calves is not easy! I love boots but could never find any that fit so when I tried these on and they fit, I GOT THEM!! I love them!!!!! And a bonus was they have given me that boot (excuse the pun) up the bum I needed to get back into my weight lose journey again, been a bit slack I'm afraid! Haven't gained weight but haven't lost any either since January and I do still have about 20-30kg to get rid of!

And second of all, I wanted to share my latest knitting/crochet project with you...

My wonderful sister Diane bought this pattern for off and sent it as a mother's day gift. Stephanie Dosen is the talented young lady who posted the pattern and I have admired it for months. So I got straight to work and made it in about 4 days. I LOVE IT!!! So comfy and frilly and fun. I have even started my second one in teal colour. Thank you Diane for the gift and thank you Stephanie for a stunning pattern.
