    Just stopped by an internet cafe.

    Having a fab time.....the best ever. Way too much food here and everything has gone on my stomach! So have outgrown trousers.

    British Airways lost our luggage and didn't find it again for 3 days. Blooming nuisance as we had such little hand luggage (concerned about restrictions...we packed everything), so little money, no cameras etc.

    When they returned the cases, I'd already grown out of most of the clothes :eek::D

    Managed to get control of the food issues without depriving myself, and doing loads of walking, so it'll be fine.

    Oh well. Really having a wonderful time. Loving it.

    BFN. Missing you all.

    That's awful Izzy Wizzy! Fancy nicking the fags! Clothes and money yes, but taking the ciggies is really below the belt stuff!

    Anyway...still in Toronto. Absolutely loving it. This has got to be my bestest holiday yet (not counting honeymoon, which was great but only because of the company).

    Did Niagra falls yesterday. What a brilliant day. Now going shopping but popped in here first.

    Loving the shops. I usually hate shops, but loads of clothes that I love here and they fit :)

    So pleased I lost the weight, it's just made so much difference to everything.

    Happy, happy, happy :D

    Back again ;)

    In hindsight, I'm surprised we were so relaxed about the lost luggage. Bit of a story there that I will share on my return :)

    There's been a lot of lost luggage since the security problems I heard on the news.

    Anyway. Spending too much money. Another great day shopping yesterday. Having a few too many menieres attacks which is trying to put a damper on things, but determined not to let it spoil the holiday and besides, they aren't serious attacks so holding on in more ways than one (and with anyone passing who wants to be grabbed by me :D)

    Still really having a good time. It's so good to have DH and youngest son to myself without one of us being distracted by our worklives.

    Doing so much walking!! My DH is nuts. Reckons if you can walk it in 2 hours or under, no need for public transport :D

    Nevertheless, it's been fun and I like walking so can't complain.

    Missing you all.

    Thanks DQ. Really on a high at the moment.

    Haven't felt this at ease with the world for many a year :eek:

    OMG though. There are loads of mirrors everywhere. What a shock! Won't be missing them when I return :D

    Having a carb fest each morning which is scary, but dead nice. Slightly concerned that I try to get down before the other 2 men so that they don't see what I eat:eek:

    Honestly though, not really eating a great amount, but they only what an apple for breakfast...makes me look a right pig when I go for a couple of slices of toast:eek:

    Whoops must go. Time up.

    BFN

    They made me come home!:mad:

    Told me my two weeks were up and I'd spent all the money, so I had to return. How unfair is that:mad:

    Just when I was getting into it too.

    Caught the plane last night and just as I was ready for a sleep they said it was now morning UK time and served up breakfast.
    The suitcases are frowning in the corner, but hey...they can stay there until zombie Karion comes back to life again.

    Lots to catch up on, so please stop posting for a couple of days to give me a chance :D

    DH, cos he's said I've spent all the money. Youngest son cos he's missing his friends....and probably the bank manager when he looks at my account :D:eek:

    Got so many new clothes, DH is having to reorganise the wardrobe so he can add another rail for me :eek:
