Because I am back in my pre-DC jeans! My thinnest-me ones, too, the ones I never thought I'd wear again but couldn't bear to throw out.

And they actually fit too, not just sort-of-fasten-up-if-I-breathe-in! God bless breastfeeding and rushing around everywhere pushing a pram full of kids!

OP well done!

Can I be really weird and ask where the say 'caloo, calay' is from?

It sounds familiar! And really funny too smile

Well done OPsmile

Quiet-I've just googled "callou callay" as I've heard it before but couldn't remember where fromsad
It's from the book Alice in wonderland/jabberwocky poem by C.S Lewis.
Think I've heard it in a Disney film though-possibly Robin Hood?

Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky, Quite

"O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

Well done, OP.

Yes, Lewis Carol, only I forgot "frabjous" so substituted "fantabulous".

And thank you for the congrats, which I'll take even though they're not deserved as I've done nothing to lose the weight!
