A New Challenge...

Hi everyone...I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your family and friends and that Santa managed to climb down your chimney and leave you something special under the tree...
the weather on Christmas Day was weird...a mild and balmy 15 degrees...you don't expect to be sitting on the back door step drinking coffee while the oven works it's magic on the roasties and then albeit a little bit late for a White Christmas...the Furry Boy and his Mum were getting suited and booted for our Boxing Day "walking in a winter wonderland" morning stroll...
But 2 days of feasting have taken their toll...I'm suffering from that old familiar beached whale syndrome and really should be heading back to the cubbyhole for a bit of a crafty workout...away from the temptation of the sweetie mountain...
so far I've managed to resist but we all know it won't be long before I'm overcome by that "go on...just have one" feeling and my fate will be sealed. And if I don't want the "already bursting at the seams" midriff bulge to grow any bigger...I need to squirrel them away in a safe "out of sight...out of mind" place...the challenge is remembering where that safe place is...you know the one I mean...the very same place where things mysteriously disappear never to be seen again.
Wish me luck

  1. Morning Kath, I know the feeling about resisting but unfortunately I caved in and open the Quality Street. New Year new diet! Enjoy the rest of the festive season.

  2. Sounds like your weather has been a right mixed bag.
    I didn't buy much in the way of sweeties this year but I've still managed to stuff myself silly.

  3. Oh, my word, I'm giggling over your post! I totally get that hide them so no one will ever find them place. I just found some Easter candy! Yippee!

  4. Ha, ha, I know that place well.... the only trouble is, when I do eventually find it there are no chocolates or sweeties in there!! I guess we should expect the cold and snow at this time of year, we only have frost here but it is quite chilly... Hugs, Anne xx
