done it again....

whoops....! i've allowed the week to run away with me and done no blogging again. I'm hopeless.

Anyway, it's been a mixed week. On the plus side i've accomplished all my dt commitments (it was touch and go,lol) and got them posted where they're supposed to be - and on time! - so I feel pretty good about that :-) Also, my first week of dieting has gone well. I officially started on Monday, but I've been a bit careful since last Saturday, so I was chuffed to bits to discover i'd lost 3.5lbs when I weighed yesterday. The man of the house was not so pleased however... He felt he'd really tried and had done very well... until he stepped on the scales. Oh dear. He'd put on 2lbs! Sulking furiously, he declared them broken.

Well obviously.... ;-)

I had some sad news on Thursday. A cyber friend, Janice Nielson, passed away at just 60. I knew Janice from various forums and she was a very popular, very likeable person. Someone who was always interested in others and who just radiated love and warmth. She and her husband were both teachers and lived and taught on a Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona. She left behind three children, her hubby and many many friends in the scrapbooking world. I'm so sad that she's no longer with us, but losing someone so suddenly like that does make you realise how important it is to live each day as if it were your last. None of us knows what's round the corner. My thoughts and prayers go to her family, who were her world.

Mojo went live last night with a lovely lift from a very talented girlie, Jaz.

After a fraught few hours when my scanner packed up, I finally managed to get it going and get my image into the bucket so Sarah could upload it with the others.

My LO - you've been warned!

And Sarah's sketch

Ok, off to town.
Hugs to all, stay safe, stay warm.

Hi Jakey!

You did a great scrap-lift and I'm just loving those vibrant colours you've used!

Way to go with the weight loss. Always best to start off losing smal amounts all the time, that way you lose gradually & don't end up saggy!! I lost 1 1/2stone in 4 months last year so it is achievable just don't be too hard on yourself if you slip up from time to time.
Love the bold colour of this layout reminds me of warmer times, may they roll on soon. I long to come home in daylight, & go to work in daylight wouldn't be too bad either.
