happy inside

I absolutely LOVE this new ikea advert, and had to share it with anyone and everyone who has or hasn't seen it yet :D it's just too cute for words!
Also I have decided to share ONE of my terrible graduation photo's with you all :P

I have a terrible tendancy to ALWAYS pull a silly face whenever i see a camera, this one is the least silly :) me and mr S.
Finally a big sorry to everybody, my blogger has been playing up lately, there are atleast 10 blogs I have commented on only to be faced with a "Problem loading page" message a few mins later :( boo!! x

if i were rich!

Ok so one of my favourite things to do when i'm bored at home, is to trawl through lovely homes for sale on the net!! I love imagining I have millions of pounds and that I could afford any of the ones I see! It is a VERY distant dream, but a little fantasy is always good, so i thought I would share with you some of my dream houses for sale in nottingham!

This Gorgeous house has the most stunning garden, and the room sizes are HUGE!!

I drive past this house all the time on my way through Southwell :) i always slow right down just to stare!! Look at the rooms!!!

This home is so quirky, I love it :D

I loooovvveeee the gardens around this house, and the rooms are incredible!

How about having your own lake?? This one is very modern compared to my usual tastes but i certainly wouldn't turn it down!

How's this for curb appeal!! a great big WOW!

And finally this house is more like a hotel! Just look at all of the photo's, I can't believe i've never noticed this place!
Ahhhhh wouldn't it be lovely to spend just a week in one of these places :) I know what I will be dreaming about tonight!!

new diet starts NOW!

Hello ladies! Well today I officially started the Rosemary Conley inch loss plan with my mum! It's a diet and exercise regime that claims you can loose a stone in a month (wouldn't that be nice?!) Our first meeting was tonight at 7.30, where we were given a little goody bag and our target card. The best things in my bag were firstly the magic measure

It's a regular measure that comes with colour coded clips. You get two of each colour clip, one that doesn't come off once it's closed, and one that does! The point of this is to mark your original measurements all over, so you can see how many inches you've lost :) it seems like a good idea for motivation, we'll see how it goes!

Secondly are these portion pots, you get a little guide to tell you what each pot measures, to help make sure you have the right sized portion! It will make life much easier, but knowing my usual portions i think I will be going hungry a few times in the next couple of weeks, especially as for the first 2 weeks of the plan you can only have 1400 cals a day!!
Not too long ago I did take part in the this morning healthy starts diet. This was a good diet as it was nice to have meals planned out without counting all of the calories. Admittedly i did loose nearly 2 stone on that diet, but I did not get my money's worth as due to matt loosing his job, we couldn't afford to buy any of the groceries we needed for the recipes! Fingers crossed this one is a little more affordable and is easier to stick too :) I will keep you posted on my hopeful weight loss!!
