This was one of those photos that, as soon as you took it, you wanted to scrap.
I just knew I would have fun with it.
The picture was taken when Jakki, Gary, Nij and I went for a lovely evening walk and reminds me of the really nice evening we had.
I made it for one of my design team pages at A Trip Down Memory Lane last month.
I loved making the paper flowers to go with it - all scruffy and roughed up.
I have been making DT pages today as well - not that I can share them yet - and have also been shopping.
Having been a 'blob' for more years than I care to remember, and always hating myself in whatever I wore, I went out today feeling good about myself. I am sure I still looked like a blob to most people, but I had smaller tighter jeans on that showed my legs are much thinner (yes still reminiscent of tree trunks but perhaps a scots pine now rather than a giant sequoia) .
We had a bit of a clothes fest whilst out with Nigel buying three new sewatshirts and two new pairs of skinny jeans that he looks FAB in and I got 2 blouses, 2 t shirts, a cardigan and a long sleeved top. All of them very different to things I usually wear and also smaller!
I have also 'autumnised' (now that is a real George Bush phrase) my blog.
I ate my first real food in 8 weeks last night - we went to Pizza Express for Nigel's birthday. I had promised fromt he oitset that I would and was very very nervous about it. It was fine. I managed most of my pizza - and boy was it delicious - and I am back in ketosis again. I did have a headache this morning - a carbs overdose I think.
