What a jam-packed day that has been full of delights!
First up was a conversation with a rather wonderful woman – a kindred spirit of sorts I would say. I anticipated speaking to her for about half an hour…2 hours and 18 minutes later we finally and reluctantly ended the call. I still have so much to talk to her about!
All of my communication rules – such as not interrupting, for example – went out of the window as I was so excited and passionate about what we were discussing. And yes, it centred around helping people make improvements to their lives, health, and consequently weight!
I cannot wait to talk to her again, and I promise that I will share more as I have a feeling that this lady could be of help to you too…I think we might end up collaborating on some projects. Eeeek – I am so excited! Hence all of the fecking exclamation marks!
The fact that our call was a little longer than I thought it would be meant that I sat there all togged up in my gym gear…but didn’t get to the gym! So I will have to fit in a session tomorrow.
After the rather energising discussion, I quickly headed to see the horses, and dashed to the shops…I had 40 minutes before I had a ‘date’ with my old lady down the road. She was coming for lunch with my sister and I and my little nephew. She has recovered well from the fall she had when I scraped her up off the pavement and got her all sorted out. Her scars are minimal, and she loves the new glasses I bought for her…I felt so awful for her, as she lives on her own and has no local friends, nor family, and reading was her big thing. But her fall was over the Christmas period and the opticians was shut. So I am pleased that she is sorted now.
I keep an eye on her, and visit her weekly. She spent Christmas and Boxing Day with us, and has had lunch a few times with us…and we are planning on taking her to meet the horses next weekend and have a barbeque. It’s nice to be nice and I kind of feel a bit guilty for not noticing that she didn’t get many visitors…so I have adopted her in a way I guess!
Then I headed over for a catch-up with my Slimming World consultant and spent a good few hours putting the world to rights!
And then I was off to babysit for a bit…and my cheeky niece had convinced my sister that she should stay up late. So we chatted for a bit about all sorts of random stuff that five year old girls talk about…including the ‘naughty’ words that her friends at school have taught her! In order to divert attention I began talking about weddings and then began looking for cakes online…she has taken screenshots of them all…so my iPad is now full of variations on rainbow cakes – and I hadn’t even decided upon a rainbow cake.
Do you know what though? If my niece wants me to have a rainbow cake, then that’s what we’ll have…I would love nothing more than for my family to create a day that we can all enjoy together. I want no stiffness, no formality…and so I am tempted to get her and my nephew to draw the cake and get their design made a reality. I want to marry Mr WLB at some point…but I am not the kind of person who has a wedding file…I am not so bothered about the details; I just want fun and happiness!
It’s now gone 10pm…I have finally settled down to relax…so that’s it from me tonight – although I doubt I will sleep as I am still so excited by that bloody phonecall!
Breakfast: Boiled eggs and banana.
Exercise: None – eek…that wasn’t planned so going to fit it in tomorrow instead!
