MarshaBrady Sun 09-Mar-14 20:05:04

Hello! Great new edition grin thanks Shop.

Love that look Santa I pinned something like that the other day. Oversized and relaxed.

Linus great shopping. Am particularly impressed by the coffee machine in a bid for solidarity. (we just re-bought our old De Longhi one in the end after all that!)

MarshaBrady Sun 09-Mar-14 20:05:21

Haha Santa that is brilliant grin

shopafrolic Sun 09-Mar-14 20:06:55

Phew Santa you had me worried! did you just gaze adoringly at your feet while the DCs played? smile

LinusDKD Sun 09-Mar-14 20:08:05

Que? I didn't do any shopping!

shopafrolic Sun 09-Mar-14 20:08:59

Missed ST Style mag today but have a shiny new Vogue here to peruse.
Linus has the parcel arrived yet?

MarshaBrady Sun 09-Mar-14 20:09:19

Darn! Thread cross over mishap. Fed up that was for fed up!

LinusDKD Sun 09-Mar-14 20:12:03

It's ok marsha, I probably would have been shopping today if the shops here were open on Sunday.

No parcel yet shop.

libertychick Sun 09-Mar-14 20:16:53

Oh fab new thread.
I love the image of Santa sitting looking pretty in her new shoes smile

Right, I have made a decision. I am going to lose a stone. No angsting, just getting on with it. I have a lovely tan, my hair is curling beautifully and a smaller ass would just complete the look grin

Welcome back Anni <shakes pom poms and waits for some great jeans links> - I'm going to need new ones soon grin

shopafrolic Sun 09-Mar-14 20:19:51

Boom! Go for it Liberty although I'm not sure where you're planning on losing it from? Loved your curls - bet you're looking gawjus

MarshaBrady Sun 09-Mar-14 20:42:03

Good one Liberty. What way to you fancy going? Low carb /5:2 / portions yada (thinking of threads on here!)

QueenCadbury Sun 09-Mar-14 20:46:41

Evening all. Had a fab weekend up north but it's a bloody long way away! Loved the sunshine today and this week will be getting out all my summer clothes from the cupboard and putting the jumpers away.

BlairWaldorfLovesShopping Sun 09-Mar-14 20:50:41

Hi all! Hope everyone's had a lovely weekend - I know we did with the glorious weather.

However... today may have been the most mortifying experience OF MY LIFE SO FAR. Accidentally seeing FIL full frontal naked at 9am. Oh my god blush blush blush blush blush I just wanted to die! But he apologised later and the rest of the day wasn't too bad. But still, even typing this is horrific!

Moving swiftly on...
Fashion wise I need to spend the rest of tonight browsing Matches as I didn't realise they sent me a £50 off £150 code that expires tonight! What an idiot.

liberty I think I'm going to start 5:2 later this week so might be able to offer some moral support if you go down that route!

libertychick Sun 09-Mar-14 21:00:30

Oh you are brave QueenC I stick by my granny's advise of 'n'er cast a clout, till May is out' smile.

You are too kind Shop - it needs to come off my tummy, bum and thighs though as always I'll probably lose it off my boobs first.

Marsha I am doing WeightWatchers - signed up on line last night. I dropped from 13/14 stone to 11 stone with them about 10 years ago and have maintained it reasonably well. I like the structure of counting points and writing down what I eat every day works for me. This time though I will use the 'treat' element for things like avocado and dark chocolate instead of using it for desserts and I plan to follow Sleep's advise about having protein and fat with each meal. By default that will mean being low carb to some degree.

libertychick Sun 09-Mar-14 21:02:08

Cross post Blair. We can support each other on different plans.

Now how exactly did you manage to see your FIL naked?? shock

MarshaBrady Sun 09-Mar-14 21:03:07

Blair oh no! You poor thing! I hope you can banish the image from your mind. Good one on the Matches voucher, there's some lovely stuff on there. Link what you get!

Liberty sounds really good. Especially the dark choc and avocado for treats.

Fedupnagging Sun 09-Mar-14 21:03:12

Ooo how exciting, I have actually been around for the end of one thread and the start of another.

Oh Blair how embarrassing although I am laughing - sorry.

Ha ha Marsha. Am loving the coffee machine, almost as much as the shoes. Have drunk loads of coffee today! am on the g&ts now

QueenCadbury Sun 09-Mar-14 21:03:20

blair was he, ahem, in all his full morning glory grin grin

Fedupnagging Sun 09-Mar-14 21:10:36

Meant to say good luck Marsha and * Liberty* with you weight loss plans.

BlairWaldorfLovesShopping Sun 09-Mar-14 21:12:02

QueenC!!! No!!! Give me the brain bleach!

Basically, after going to bed at 2am I don't think he expected us to be awake at 9, but I really needed the loo. Which is opposite PILs bedroom. And he obviously errrr, sleeps naked? Basically it was just a really really REALLY bad case of bad timing. Like the worst ever. <cries>

santamarianovella Sun 09-Mar-14 21:14:28

Nah shop ,at one point I thought,they went back home,and thought ,brill I will just sit here longer and just look at all the lovely people, but it didnt last long,they did show up for lunch,

liberty,good luck with weight watchers,

queen I took all my summer clothes out,and I must have filled two boxes of unwanted clothes,I need to get some new stuff, but need to do some serious thinking about my ss pin board.

blair I'm sorry,but grin,

fedup enjoy the nespresso !

BlairWaldorfLovesShopping Sun 09-Mar-14 21:22:04

Thanks for the varying degrees of sympathy. grin

Meant to give Anni a <wave>

And santa I'm glad the espadrilles got an outing! Hopefully you'll be able to wear them again soon, if the weather doesn't turn awful again.

Drywhiteplease Sun 09-Mar-14 21:31:46

I'm back!
Blairgrin grin
liberty you looked fine to me when I met you! but good luck.
Anni yey!
So happy to see the new thread.

My outfit.....sounded good, looked terrible sad. Then I had a frantic 20mins of trying on, pinning, throwing clothes on bed. Then I realised I looked so terrible in my jeans that I deleted all pins sad. I just can't get those lovely sandals to work, just make my legs look shorter and stumper than they already are. Worried I have wasted my money sad
In the end I wore black skinnies, stone heeled ankle boots with the stone biker, black slouch jumper, new necklace and disco. Much better. High tea was great you know me well enough to know I snuck in a cheeky glass of vino wink
