Rain rain, go away

And this flu can also go away. On the bright side, my head doesn’t feel like it’s going to explode today. Sinus headaches suck! Big thank yous to Topher for making me tea yesterday when I couldn’t get out of bed. Right there – that’s why I’m marrying you.

So according to the weather forecast, it’s now going to rain for the foreseeable future. Lovely! At least I got out in the garden and tamed that beast just in time.

I had my first wedding dress fitting!

It was so great to try it on and not having my back hang out like it did with the sample. In fact, it needs to be taken in a fair bit too. I reckon that’s just because I’m wearing it slightly different to how its supposed to be worn and that’s all I’m saying.

I had to laugh when I first saw the dress bag. Purple and polka dots! The most me dress bag I have ever seen in my life! I can’t wait for the next fitting.

My mum came and stayed over so she could come with me to the fitting and boy oh boy did we get shit done. We got a bunch of stuff for the wedding and she helped me get my garden back under control. It looks so pretty now!

We also found the perfect vases for the centre pieces and for a great price at Ikea. The only problem with that is that I was planning on spray painting coffee jars for vases so all the calculations I’d done on the amount of flowers needed was based on that. These new vases have wider brims so we literally need double the amount of flowers. *Screams internally. So I’ve got to seriously get my act together and get flower making.

I maintained at Slimming World

I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to maintain my weight than I was this week! How the hell did I manage that? My mum and I had 2 meals out with dessert and I had a pic n mix fuelled Thursday – Saturday so it is literally a miracle.

I’ve gotten focused now anyway and realise the problem lies in the cheat day after I’ve been weighed which ultimately turns into cheat weekend. I can’t carry on like this as I’m just throwing money away going to group every week. I want to get to target.

So I did a whole bunch of research on Tuesday and Wednesday night and found a whole load of new recipes that I’m super excited about. Thanks Pinch of Nom! So I had a great day for food yesterday, even despite being ill. It’s been a great start to the week so onwards and upwards!

I sold my dresser!

Yay, that’s one piece of big furniture gone from the living room. It’s just the leather armchairs I’m still struggling to shift. I’ve just added a listing on Facebook selling so fingers crossed they go this week.

How was your week?
