Best..... weekend...... EVER!!!!

Ok, well, maybe not the absolute best, because Caroline's wedding is up there, and when the AC was born is up there, but this is one of the Best Weekend's Ever!


What a jolly good question! (As you can tell from my style of writing, I'm in an offensively good mood!)

A clue.....

Another clue!


Ok.  We have spent the last couple of days with.......  MARIGOLD!

Before anyone gets too excited, she's not ours, she's on hire from in Warwick, and she is ours until Monday lunchtime.  Yesterday we drove her back from Warwick to Lynn.  She did very well!  J had to get used to a complete lack of powered anything (i.e. when you put the screen washer on, the lights dimmed!) and a gearbox that was like stirring soup and guessing, but that is nothing against bounce, that is just what a 1976 original T2 is like.

But she is gorgeous, so we took her to Lifestyles which is an event at Hunstanton.  She drove like a dream.  She's got a T25 engine in her as opposed to her original, but she is lovely!

Obviously J had to clean her - she was at a show after all!

She shone in the sun when she was done.  We went over her with Fast Glass and she was shiny shiny shiny!

We spent the day chilling out, watching the events at Lifestyles, eating sandwiches, wandering around the place, and definately, just enjoying being together.

We left, and then went over to my sisters, and had a brew and a chat.  It was, all in all, a very fabulous day.

Aside from the MASSIVE sunburn which I have on my back because I wore a dress for the first time in a long time.  I don't know if I've lost inches, and I know I've missed a couple of days listening to the Slimpod, but I am easily influenced lol, so I think it is working.  I do know that I am eating less often, and that when I do eat (which I do, don't get me wrong lol!) I don't want as much.  I'm not eating for the sake of eating.  I'm not finishing food just because it is there.  I'm also finding that I remember most of the bits that affect me.

Like I say, it's a gorgeous day, with a gorgous van, and a gorgeous life!
