Demon's Maintenance Journey

morning everyone


Shock, horror.............it's not usual for me to be up soooo early
Off on a teambuild with work - think it's going to be some kind of treasure hunt around Oxford - fingers crossed it doesn't rain.


Brekkie - Just grabbed a nice big mug of coffee made with half pint of skimmed milk plus a CD choc orange bar
No idea what the rest of the day will bring, but it's not likely to be of the 'healthy' variety lol
wishing you all a good and POSITIVE day

Not looking too bright here in Wilts...............well it is Monday after all. Was hoping the patio could be finished over the next couple of days, but not if we get rain and it's definitely not looking good right now


Hadn't thought about taking photo's jane, but guess we should while it's still very new - be interesting to see how the area develops as people move in - only the house opposite ours is occupied at the moment. They've said how much they're looking forward to seeing more of us around - it's a bit lonely over there for them at the moment. Fingers crossed, we should be ready for the last weekend of the month.............can't wait


Went to the cinema yesterday afternoon to see Pirates......excellent.............just love Johnny Depp


Here's the menu.......

Brekkie - 2 shredded wheat with skimmed milk plus mug of coffee with the remainder of my half pint allowance.
Mid morning - small banana.
Lunch - Baxters lentil and vegetable soup, small granary roll with a Laughing Cow light cheese triangle. Choc orange bar. Satsuma.
Dinner - quorn sausages and veggies. Banana shake made into mousse
4/5ltrs water
wishing you all a good and POSITIVE day

Pleased to say the promised thunder and lightning didn't happen here in Wilts yesterday
Not sure what the forecast is today, but so far the sun is shining and it's lovely and bright...........fingers crossed I'm not speaking too soon!!


Will be off work this afternoon - got to be over at the new house - loads going on. Tiles being laid in the conservatory, someone's coming to measure up for the blinds and we've got another site visit booked to go through the 'snagging' etc. Also keeping fingers crossed there's more progress on the patio.

Here's the menu.............if I can find time to actually eat that is


Brekkie - 2 shredded wheat with skimmed milk plus mug of coffee with the remainder of my half pint allowance.
Mid morning - small banana.
Lunch - pasta, mixed pulses, cherry tomatoes and cucumber tossed in fat free salad dressing. Caramel bar. Satsuma.
Dinner - quorn cumberland sausages and veggies. Toffee and walnut shake made into mousse.
4/5ltrs water
wishing you all a good and POSITIVE day

good morning everyone

Lovely and
here in Wilts today - we had a few showers yesterday, but so far seem to have missed the really bad weather. The patio is really beginning to look good now, hopefully get finished tomorrow - our chappie is off to Ascot with his wife today so I really hope the rain stays away for them.


I prefer to have carbs just twice a day jane - after a bit of trial and error when I started maintenance found it works best for me to have them at brekkie and lunch during the week. Tbh find the protein and veggies plus pud are more than enough by the time I get round to dinner.

Here's the menu........

Brekkie - 2 shredded wheat with skimmed milk plus mug of coffee with the remainder of my half pint allowance.
Mid morning - small banana.
Lunch - Baxters autumn veggie soup, small granary roll with 1 Laughing Cow light cheese triangle. Malt toffee bar. Satsuma.
Dinner - sliced chicken and veggies. Cappuccino shake made into mousse.
4/5ltrs water
Wishing you all a good and POSITIVE day

Really missed getting on here each morning


The move went okish............if we forget the pouring rain
We're still in total chaos - boxes everywhere - can't get the car anywhere near the garage
Doesn't look like we'll havea phone line much before the end of July so no pc
Got back to work Wednesday and it's been truly manic so this is the first chance I've had to pop in here and won't be back now til Monday..........if I'm lucky


Diet wise.......well as you'd expect............too many take aways etc............really will have to get back on track with a vengeance next week.

hope you've all been doing well and here's wishing you a good and POSITIVE weekend.

Still struggling to get in here at work. Really miss my pc at home - makes you wonder what we did before they were invented eh


Still wading through the boxes - seems never ending - can't think where all this 'stuff' came from. Absolutely crazy - the house is bigger but nothing fits
Goes to show these new houses definitely don't factor in anywhere near enough storage space. Think Mr.D and me will be doing lots more trips to the tip


It's been pretty difficult managing Mother - she's only just started to leave the house as she was a bit disorientated to begin with - fingers crossed she'll settle in soon.

wishing you all a good and POSITIVE day

seems ages since I managed to get in here :cry: Really miss having a pc at home - work is just sooo manic I rarely get the chance to post at all during the week.
BT are now saying we're not likely to have a landline til sometime in August


We've finally got most of the boxes in the house unpacked, but still need to tackle the garage...........now that really is going to be a mammoth task
not to mention 'managing' Mother's expectations of what we've actually got room for..........oh dear.......deep joy ahead !!!!!!!!!!


The diet has taken a bit of a bashing........been eating for England lol and feeling very
Started 790 this morning to undo some of the damage.......guessing it's going to take a couple of weeks


The really good news is that we just love the new house - had all the family over last weekend and it was absolutely fab to have so much room for them all


Goodness knows when I'll get another chance to get in here..........wishing you all a good and POSITIVE week

Well done !
When we moved to this house it was 5 years before we got the last boxes done. Just shows what you can manage without

Gosh seems ages since I managed to get in here :cry: Still without a landline in the new house so no pc.............aaaarrrrrrgh :mad: and it's really difficult getting on here at work........manically busy


After a bad start been doing 790 for just over a week now and finally getting back to 'normal' - will probably keep going for a bit longer and then start moving back up through the maintenance programme. Just as well we don't plan to move again for a very long time - permission to hit me with a wet fish if I ever suggest it lol

Don't know when I'll get back in, but BT are promising the phone for the end of Aug - as they've been giving us dates since June I won't hold my breath


We were absolutely fine with all the rain - no flooding - hope everyone here was okay too.
hope you've all been doing well and here's wishing you a good and POSITIVEweekend.

Hi demon,

Moving house is high on the list of the most stressful events in life, so cut yourself some slack.

You have done extremely well and are an inspiration to the rest of us.


Good to hear you were okay in the floods.


Delighted your back to normal and hopefully you get your land line sorted.

Love Mini xxx

finally got a landline...........next hurdle..........waiting for broadband to be connected.............sooooo..............fingers crossed won't be too long before I can get back in here every day
oh boy have I missed it


Things have been truly hectic, what with my new job, the house and problems with my Mother (now that's another story!!!) - afraid the diet has gone to pot a bit, but I'm finally getting my head back round it and thankfully haven't done too much damage.............phewwww

wishing you all a good and
POSITIVE weekend
 
Welcome back!
 
Hope things are good with you - been missing your daily chirpy and colourful posts!!!!

As previously said moving house is extremely stressful and if your Mum has been confused and less than easy then you must have been very stressed. Hope things have settled down now.

SOunds like you have had a nightmare with BT :eek: - appalling service.

Looking forward to seeing you back online soon!!!!
