    Good morning from the UK lol

    Hope you are having a lovely time IDL. I'm not at all jealous (she says through gritted teeth) lol xxx

    Slept well last night. OH woke me at 3 when he got up but I managed to get back off for a few hours.

    We didn't have LO last night so I can wake up in peace this morning.

    Oh my goodness.... It's so cold out there!! Just started the car to defrost it a bit. I know it's bad for the engine but sod that, it's iced up!

    Does anyone do yoga?? I have a DVD that I'm going to try tonight but just want to know if it actually has any benefits. I'm not very flexible but I know this will come over time and practise. Would be interested to hear if it does work.

    Need to get back on it, though I've weighed this morning and I'm only 2lb heavier than a couple of weeks ago and Aunt Flo is due this week!

    Just had a cry to OH on the phone. I'm so fed up with all these issues between my family and OH.

    They want him to sort things with my sister and he's not interested. Which I don't blame him at all. He sent mum a text to apologise for the things that were said earlier in the year. Asked if a line could be drawn and start a fresh. I was so thankful for him making the first move but it's like mums just thrown it back in his face.

    I thought I'd be waking up so happy this morning and be able to talk to mum and dad about the wedding etc but just feel so down about all. All because my sister is jealous of what I've got

    Sorry to hear all of the above MW2B - not sure what the background is, but could you not all meet on neutral ground and thrash it out once and for all? xx

    That's what my mum asked but can we meet in the new year. I want it sorting now not next year but she doesn't seem to understand that. OH isn't interesting in meeting up with my sister as she's caused trouble for 7 years and we've both had enough

    Ahhhh, Michelle... big hugs to you.

    I know you are feeling down hearted but your mum did reply. I wish she had said a closer time than new year but at least she text back. Why will your OH draw a line with your parents but not your sister? If he is going to do it, i think he needs to draw a line with both. Could this have something to do with your mums response?!

    Could he not draw a line under what has happened with your sister, but then as she's caused so much upset, you give her a bit of a wide berth afterwards and move on with your own lives? Sounds like a really horrible situation to be in.

    She just doesn't seem to understand the problems she's caused. We've forgave her on several occasions for things she's done and I just think it's the final straw with OH as he involved her in everything we did and has always been there when she's needed him etc.

    It's like she's just done everything she possibly can to try and split us up

    I am still disgusted that step son's school still took them. No thoughts whatsoever. They are due back today or tomorrow I think but they still have to get from Germany to France and home. Anything could happen, is it really worth risking it.

    Feel so sorry for you Michelle. At least your OH has made the first move. Hopefully it will be a catalyst for things to improve xx

    My hands were freezing in the car, I started the engine up so I could put my front windscreen on, then scraped the side windows, but the time I got in the car the front screen was defrosted, drove off but the car had not warmed up at all. My hands were frozen.

    I'm so proud of OH for being the bigger person and making the first move. It's up to them now. He's tried to make things better but it's going to take more time for him to ever talk to my sister again.

    Morning all :)

    Was woken up this morning by the radiators ticking as the pipes expanded gr. epc has been done for the house this morning so our house ad should be complete this week.

    Made some wheat biscuits with milk and warmed them up to ttry and warm myself up!

    Never tried yoga em but it should really help your hip .. I've been told I should do it for my back but I wouldn't know where to start!

    It's annoying they're puttjng it off until next year mmw2b the only light at the end of the tunnel is at least they didn't ignore it altogether.

    I've put my running watch on charge with the intention of attempting a run tonight as mum has hassled me for three days now to go out find it hard to be motivated when it's so cold and I know it'll affect my ability to walk!

Had a pretty chilled out weekend but feeling a bit harassed and stressed this morning, come into work and we've had 2 more deadlines in both before Christmas. Really stacked up at the moment, I hate not feeling in control.

    I knew I had a tonne of work to complete last night Flossie so I made a list.

    Ones a work to do list
    Ones a wedding to do list
    Then the last one is a accident / back treatment to do list

    Then because we're getting more responsiblility and accountability with the slight change in our roles I've also made a suggestions list as to what we could implement as a team to drive performance and minimise costs
    One of which is a training manual so also made a list of potential training points and evidence they would have to put in.

    Lists lists lists.

    Is it sad that I enjoy writing lists haha

    I've also resorted to lists in the form of playlists for all the songs we like that could potentially be for our first dance so we can play the playlists over and over again to decide our favourite for the first dance then the ones we don't choose have playing in the background for the weddjng breakfast .. I think I'm hooked on lists

    I've got a tab on my spreadsheet for music as well, have been thinking about what songs we'd like played during the evening and will update it when we've had a chance to talk to the DJ in more detail about our playlists. Literally got a tab for everything!

    I ordered my 2016 work diary on Friday, so excited for it to come. First thing that's going in there is the wedding!

    I just like writing in general. I also love when you find a really good pen!
