I promised at the start of the year I would join in with this linky and I did. Once. So here’s my second attempt to get joining in more regularly!
The girls have gone absolutely mad for all things Lion King/Lion Guard based. I managed to find them a large book with 12 figures in a charity shop of the Lion Guard which is their current obsession. I reckon I’ve probably read the book about 3000 times this week. I have to say, I’m all for all things Disney so I shouldn’t moan. It certainly beats Paw Patrol!
They also are addicted to watching people opening the blind bags with the Lion Guard toys. My YouTube homepage is full of them!
I remember many moons ago always coming home from school to find my Mom glued to the OJ Simpson trial. I vividly remember being at my friends house having tea when it came on the news just before Home and Away that he had been acquitted. Even then, I remember knowing it was a pretty big deal. I really enjoyed The People Versus OJ Simpson drama that was on last year, but a new “real” series has been made. Lets be honest, we all know what happens and I have watched many shows on it all but OJ: Made in America sucked me in.
With interviews with the lawyers, jurors and family it was a real eye opener, but also a bit of a gut wrencher when they showed unedited images of the crime scene cementing what a truly horrific brutal double murder it was. Still now, it’s quite unbelievable seeing the stack of evidence to know he was acquitted but it really is a fascinating watch.
Along with everyone else, Ed Sheeran’s new album has been choice of sounds this week. I actually got the CD for my husband as it was his birthday but he left it here whilst he went off to work in Scotland so I’ve enjoyed nicking it. The girls are still crazy on listening to songs via YouTube and the Moana soundtrack along with, you’ve guessed it, The Lion King is one that gets played at least once a day.
I am back on plan this week after a rather naughty three weeks off, so clothes have been feeling a tad tight so no photos of me this week as it’s been baggy clothes all the way to conceal my extra baggage. I’m hoping to get a big chunk of it off next Tuesday at weigh in. I am now a Slimming World Target Member so I need to be within 3lb of my target weight to get free membership, so fingers crossed please!
A tad tenuous, but we have made some absolutely huge changed to our house this past week. Last week saw us gut out our old bathroom and replace it with a gorgeous brand new shiny one. There’s still lots of bits and pieces to be done but after 19 months of utterly detesting our incredibly old and dated bathroom, I am over the moon. We also have had our under stairs converted to storage; you know the dreamy ones you pin the sh*t out of on Pinterest?! I could weep at how happy I am to be able to conceal our junk instead of it being on display for all our visitors to see. Concealment is the way forward for me in 2017!
Today I am off filming for a very exciting project. I absolutely hate it when people write things like this as I just want to scream TELL ME but I will be able to in a few weeks hopefully. It’s my first real vlogging gig and I am rather excited not to mention nervous. I definitely credit my weight loss to finally having the confidence to step out from behind the screen. Wish me luck!
