Making a change..

Hi all

As a part of my resolutions I have invested in a slimpod from http://www.thinkingslimmer.com

The idea is based on a combination of hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy and goes well with my decision to try healthy eating instead of a diet.  You listen to the mp3’s and they work by helping modify your decisions… helping you make better ones… at least that’s the idea!!

I’ll keep you all updated… hope it helps – then again it’s all down to will power and self control.

So in a really Scottish manner I’ll finish with this…

Still pondering the HOUND…

Hi all

I’ve been thinking about Hounds of Baskerville (shocking) because it has been sitting in my mind.  The obvious thing is the genius of those involved.  But, the real kudos must belong to Martin Freeman in a masterclass of acting as Watson.  He’s been a soldier, invalided home after being shot and with a raging case of PTSD…. and running after Holmes can’t be helping with that.  Then this…

Image

This is a man who has commanded on the field.  The expectation of obedience.  

But it was in the lab that he shone… the terror in his eyes as every nightmare from battle rose up and growled…. give this man his second BAFTA…. please!!!!

I was excited about the Hobbit…. now I’m drooling….. and terrified for Reichenbach on Sunday.

Promise I’ll write about something else tomorrow 😉

Plans in action

Hi all

I thought that today I’d write about the first set of resolutions I’ve made this year.  Yes, the first set…. big decisions for hopefully big changes this year…

These decisions are all about me…. well I suppose resolutions are all personal but these ones are really about changing physically….

Dieting is a harsh term…. so I’m going to eat healthily.  You can cheat on or break a diet… healthy eating means that if I slip then the psychological “well I’ve failed so I’ll eat everything” is easier to avoid.

Another aspect of depression is not caring so much about yourself…. being unemployed doesn’t help with that either!  So… a new haircut (thanks Diana again!!) and glasses…

Image

Pretty frames and clearer vision all in one!

I’ve even managed to find make-up designed for my ‘snow adapted’ skin… mind you it took a while… and two make-up counters covering me in foundation that was ‘almost right!’.  Their music will never be a favourite but Nicola Roberts (another milk white girl) developed cosmetics for the melanin deficient amongst us!  I’ve bought the palest one…. 001 very light…. otherwise known as tipex!

more information about the range here…

Hope everyone is having a great weekend…. Sherlock tomorrow night!!  Hounds and moors Oh My!!

Friday…. it’s Friday!

Hi all

A couple of things today.  I spent the evening with Mum and Dad then Conall and I came home – in time to see Graham Norton.  Starring this lovely man….

Image

More often seen like this at the moment….

Image

The military hero turned genius consultant detective wrangler – Dr John Hamish Watson… BTW – loved the BAFTA ding there Mr Freeman 🙂

Also on the show was the four legged star of ‘The Artist’ and this means I can show you Conall’s unusual habit…

Image

Yup… that would be Conall watching the TV and trying to make friends with the doggy….. odd but cute!

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Oops, bit late today but oh well!

A lovely time with the ladies (where are the knitting boys?) at IKEA tonight.  Nice to be back after the festive rearrangements!

A fun picture today….. one I think we all ought to emulate more…

Image

Why do we limit ourselves?  Why not shoot for the stars?  A baby is full of potential… they haven’t learnt from society that there are things they cannot dream of…. maybe we should all be more childlike.

In Matthew’s gospel Christ said..

But Jesus intervened: “Let the children alone, don’t prevent them from coming to me. God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.  [the message]

Aren’t we all superheroes in some way??
