The Shape of Things To Come?

Amazing what happens when you begin to think positively! I handed in my first job report yesterday and woke up to a score of 13 out of 10! Then my next assignment dropped into my email and a bit later a two for one meal voucher that can be used in the same town dropped in. So, I can finally meet Sarah over lunch as the job is a bus ride from where she lives and... lunch will be "free" using the voucher and the petty fee for the assignment :D

I have also been selected as one of the parents to meet with the OFSTED inspection team when they visit Luke's school next month! It's sad, but I actually enjoy that sort of role. I don't know whether it's the school that has suggested me or the inspectors on the basis of my answers to the pre-inspection questionnaire. Whichever, it is confirmation that I do in fact exist and have thoughts that people consider worthy of sharing. So I count it a privilege to be asked to contribute :D

And last, but by no means least, I dragged myself back to Weight Watchers this morning having managed to avoid going since 23rd December. As I got on the scales, I said to the leader "Please don't comment -at least I'm here!". She wanted to know what on earth I meant -I'd lost 2lbs over the Christmas period!!!

So watch out world -this is the shape of things to come!

Dusting Myself Off But...

.....where to start? Delete my posts to date? Tempting, but that's who I was and part of who I am! Thank you to all my friends who have passed by and hoped that I would return. You've made it possible for me to start again.

So, I'm now living in Norfolk with my elderly mum and my 15 year old son. I'm unemployed and overweight. I know my mum, my son and my sister and her family who live nearby and that is it. Having waited since 2004 (the year of my 40th birthday) for my life to turn around, I'm now determined that 2011 will finally be my year. I'm positive and open-minded -and a bit more than a little bit scared!

However, I hit 2011 running yesterday with an interesting little job which paid expenses only, but did get me out of the house and to a historical spot in Norfolk that I'd never visited. I took advantage of being there by googling craft shops and grabbed a breath of fresh air (2 Weight Watchers pedometer points!) and a rummage ( £7.20 spent on craft stash :S ) I wonder how many days before I make something.... Any guesses???

Woke up today and had an email about yesterday's "operation" -I scored 13 out of 10 for my assignment ?!?!?!?!

Hugs to you all,
