Just because you're my girlfriend...

Work has really been getting to me for the past couple of months and although I've done something about it and found a new job, I have to work a 3 month notice period and its really getting me down. I know I shouldn't complain as there are a lot of people out there who don't have jobs but I just found working where I am really stressful and it really started to affect me outside of work. I didn't feel like I was being me. 

On top of that, I decided to step on our scales for a laugh and tipped them at 12st 4lb! Now, at 5"5' that gave me a wonderful BMI of 28.6 putting me firmly in the overweight category. 

And I know there are bigger problems in the world but all in all I was feeling pretty rubbish about everything. Until these arrived!

I think Lew picked up on me not feeling myself! Now you have to understand, he's NEVER bought me flowers before and he has really bad hayfever so we have never had them in the house before so imagine my surprise when the lovely man from Interflora rang the doorbell brandishing these beauties! 

They really are gorgeous and really cheered me up (I'm a bit of a flower freak)! Now to work out how to dry them and keep them forever...!


P.s For anyone who's interested, I'm now at 11st 13lb after two weeks of dieting. Still a way to go but slowly getting there.

  2. Hi, those flowers are beautiful. Boyfriends can be so wonderful in times of need :)

    Congratulations on the weight loss! I've been dieting for 11 weeks now - it's such hard work.

    Anyway, I'd love to follow you but you don't have a follow button!
