Painting week is finally here!

I blogged about my office makeover this week and the painting has begun. I would say I’m about half way through. I can’t wait to get it all finished. I’ve had so many little decor bits sitting round waiting to be put up and it makes me so happy just thinking about it.

Plus I can’t wait to have enough shelves to accommodate all my paperwork. It’s going to be so nice to have some floor space! Photos to come soon when it’s all finished next week.

I lost a pound at Slimming World this week.

I wasn’t as happy about it as I should have been. A word to those doing or starting Slimming World: never weigh yourself at home. I know it’s tempting but it’s just not a good idea.

We were quite lucky with our scales in that they were pretty accurate to the ones in group. Unfortunately they seemed to have changed their mind in the last few weeks and gone completely AWOL. So I went to group yesterday thinking I had lost 3 and a half pounds. I was shocked when I stepped on the scales to find it was only 1 I had lost.

So instead of being happy with the one (anything going in the right direction is usually a positive for me) I was annoyed that it wasn’t 3 and a half. So lesson learned!

However, the good thing that has come out of this is that it’s annoyed me to do better this week. I tend to get my biggest losses when I’m annoyed at myself so here’s to a bigger one next week!

In other news,

I’m on the hunt for a hair and makeup person for the wedding. I’m completely out of my element as I am not into beauty at all so I’ve just been wandering round the internet trying to find someone. And more importantly, someone who isn’t already booked!

The wedding is just over 4 months away so in hindsight, I probably should have booked someone sooner. Oops. If you know anyone good in the North West, please hit me up in the comments. My only stickler is that I need someone who’s good with natural wedding looks. No oompa loompas here please! (insert crying laughing face emoji).

How was your week?
