    I have had a bit of a struggle today, yesterday I cleaned my house top to bottom so no cleaning for me today! It was raining all day so couldn't get out for a walk so I was left in the house with nothing to do.
    I decided to have a long soak in the bath then took my time over my hair and moisturizing. I felt really good after.

    I am trying to think of other things I can do to distract myself from thinking about food(not that I want to eat I just get bored). I love reading so I have been reading loads of magazines and I'm going treat myself to some new books tmrw in Tesco.

    So what is your fav distraction? :)

    Hey - I am definitely another advocate of the nice bath with a book... I also am trying to teach myself guitar and get into drawing again... my mum knits like a demon (or tries to, hehe)... and cleaning/sorting is always good too... tried alphabetizing everything in your house?? People might think you've gone a bit crazy, but it will pass some time!! Hahaha :D:D:D

    I've just had a usb turntable, so very happy burning all my old albums & singles (for those of you old enough to remember 'proper records) onto my PC and MP3 player.

    Cleaning!!??! EEKKK!

    I love my garden and am trying to study for a qualification but things have put that on a back burner for a bit. I will pick it up again soon!! I do tapestry and sewing and have just started beading and jewellery making again which is fun. I've gathered together all the things I have done in the past like cushion fronts and I'm now making my way through them and actually making them into cushions! I'm always reading something. I have dogs that need attention. I do a pastels class every week. I have a long list of things that need doing around the house that I'm working my way through like altering curtains and finishing staining the new windows.

    Oh and OH and I have an engineering company to run.
