Wednesday weigh in - and charity shops!

Well the weigh in for today is 12st 5 - which is 2lb down from last week - whooooo hoooooo! I've cut back on the amount I eat but I'm still allowing myself a treat a day. Yesterday's was a danish that my friend Alex brought over for me! She also brought a fantastic pressie for me - a chicken cup that was filled with mini creme eggs!

And here he is without his head!

I had my orange juice out of him this morning as I don't think he would cope with hot tea! And I still have all of the creme eggs although Tara and I might have one for a treat later. I also bought a pressie for Alex while I was at the charity shop but didn't take any photographs. She is going to write about it on her blog so I will post a link once she has written it - phew long sentence! The link is here now!

Well I had great luck at the charity shops yesterday and both of my favourite ones were open although the third favourite was shut - they were stocking up with loads of bags going inside so I might have to have another trip there this week! I got a few books - surprise surprise! Two are for me and the rest are destined to become tags and envelopes.

Some of the books are already cut up (organised Lynsey!) but here's a few that aren't. I remember reading some of these as a child at school and they were great - I'm going to flick through them before I cut them up.

I also got a pillowcase, some maps, a scarf, a skirt and a bag full of lace trim. The chicken bag that's normally stored in my handbag was full of lace trim so I was quite pleased with that. But the piece de resistance is this cardigan/coat. I tried it on and Tara said 'Mummy's' so who was I to argue!

I wore it up to nursery this morning and I got some admiring glances. Well I think they were admiring anyway!

lol Was only wondering earlier if you'd weighted in. Our scales are not much use but I think they said I'd lost 1lb this morning. Not as good as you but I haven't tried very hard.
The coat's fab. Good choice Tara.
