Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 37, 2016

My Life Goal, ze Weight

After feeling like I had eaten two small children while on holiday in America, it seems I refused to buy them a seat on my British Airways flight back to England and have somehow managed to lose weight…to be fair we walked a lot in Washington and we didn’t eat much due to the excessive heat.

Shake Your Booty

We didn’t do much walking in California as we had a rental car…unless you class walking around Target and Walmart in air conditioning exercise!  Dad is a rather sharing, caring type of guy and has passed his cold onto all his girls…so exercise and I aren’t friends at the moment…my cold is at the “stonking” stage…so until my ears stop popping and I can breathe properly, I’m giving exercise a miss.

What I’m Up Too…

I was going to visit Harewood House today but decided to stay at home and try and get rid of this hideous cold…then I thought, well Cambridge is only 30 minutes away…then decided against that also…then thought I should really go food shopping…then decided against that to!  G has just asked what we are having for dinner…told him we have no food bar the gluten free cake that I’ve just made and coughed my guts into…pretty sure he will still eat a piece.

^^I love shipping containers…oh yes I do!

I whipped up the gluten free cake mix I bought in America, I didn’t use a recipe book…does any other gluten free freaks out there like to go to foreign supermarkets to see what they have…America does a lot of gluten free products so I picked up a cake mix to try and it wasn’t bad at all!

There isn’t too much gossip really…I’m still unpacking from America and have managed to actually work through some of my photos today so fingers crossed I might post a few things on the blog in the coming months (I still haven’t posted about my Lisbon trip in January…probably as I think Lisbon is one of the boring and overrated places in Europe but hey ho!)…at the moment there are a lot of draft posts that contain a lot of photos but no words!

I’ve decided not to really worry too much about the blog anymore…it will get updated when I feel like it and when I have time…I don’t get in a tizz anymore if I haven’t blogged three times a week like all those blog posts tell you, apparently it’s one of the ways to have a successful blog *coughs* but makes other parts of your life unsuccessful…and I do have a successful blog by my own standards; I’m still recording my life on it years after starting it and more importantly I haven’t lost my voice AND that’s why it’s successful to me.  Trust me, numbers aren’t the most important things in life (and yes I’m an accountant)…remember when your cup size was the thing you worried about most (and that’s a letter!)…I just hoped mine would stop growing…they still haven’t!

^^The most unbecoming boob photo…I need to wear a totally different bra with this top however am totally loving my new sunglasses which dad calls my racing goggles

Oh yeah…the most disorganised travellers in England have almost booked their whole big November trip…and I think I know what we’re doing for our birthday break in February.  I think it’s safe to say that while I can’t handle stress very well at the moment (and feel like I have aged 10 years in about 5 months!)…G and I have both seen some of the fog lift from around ourselves so we are slowly starting to make plans again and it’s a nice place to be in.  Any suggestions how to not stress the small stuff in life…preferably with cake involved please?

Anyway that’s me…so what’s all the gossip?

      I much preferred Porto as its just more authentic and carefree than Lisbon!

    I’m looking forward to your America posts. I really liked Lisbon, if you get to those posts, it’ll be interesting to read why you didn’t like it. I’m glad you’re feeling better. I also started to be more optimistic about some of my issues.

      I’m so glad you are feeling more optimistic as well Tanja…maybe a new moon for both of us! I just wasn’t a fan and the first time I felt totally unsafe in Europe xx
