My phone has been telling me for a while that the storage is getting full so I decided to download all 796 items(!). I’ll now be able to make blog posts based on the pics, and hopefully then, having drawn a line in the sand, be able to keep on top of blogging when the events have actually taken place!
I was scrolling through the Twitter Moments this morning and spotted a really good one about tips for saving money. I am the world’s worst at saving and I thought these were great ideas 🙂
I just spotted this cute video on Twitter. I’m not afraid of spiders, but if you are, maybe this could help?
Sometimes in life, people like to cause trouble for others. It’s tempting to react, but the adult thing is to rise above it and just continue with your life.
I just spotted the below video on YouTube and it made me smile so much! I got my own glasses at the age of 4, so I have no idea how bad my eyesight must have been before I got glasses. These babies are so cute when they react, I would have loved to see my own reaction back in the early 1980’s!
According to Days of the Year, the first Monday in January is ‘Weigh-In Day’; a day when many people begin dieting in earnest (which is usually tricky if you have Christmas goodies left over!).
I must admit that I haven’t been the healthiest of eaters today but I don’t mind because I know that I have a healthy diet and exercise regime planned for the rest of the year, so a couple of days off-diet won’t hurt in the long-term.
Due to various circumstances, I’m back to the weight I was 3 years ago, before I’d managed to lose 3 stones, but I will lose it again. Watch this space!
I turn 40 in November next year so I have put together a page to list all of the things that I would like to achieve by the time I hit 40. I’m excited to cross things off the list!
After I had put the Best Of 2017 Spotify playlist together I mentioned in my previous post, I tweeted all of the artists to let them know that they had been included, but Twitter decided to “shadowban” me, so now none of my tweets can be seen! I have contacted Twitter Support, so hopefully they should fix it soon.
As I was feeling sorry for myself, I decided to listen to music (which usually cheers me up, and I’m on a diet so I can’t binge eat, like I usually would when something upsets me!), and I found that I had saved Debbie Gibson in my albums list.
When I was 11, Debbie Gibson brought out her album “Electric Youth” and somehow, I ended up with it on cassette. I would dance to that album in the house every chance I got, and I even made up a dance routine to the title track, though I couldn’t remember it now if my life depended on it. I just listened to it and ended up having a little dance, and it really cheered me up. It’s such a great song, so here’s the video for you, just in case you need a little pick-me-up 🙂
Over on the Merryn Spotify account, I create weekly top 20 playlists featuring songs I have picked out from that week’s UK and Ireland releases. As it’s the end of the year, I have created a “Best Of” playlist, and I couldn’t get it any lower than 200 songs! It’s been an incredible year for new music from UK and Ireland artists, so if you like new music, take a listen!
I haven’t blogged in ages as I have been learning a new job and also working on Merryn, which has kept me busy.
Since I last blogged, I have turned 39 and I can’t say I’m happy. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful to still be here, I appreciate that not everyone makes it to 39, I have lost people who were way younger than me, but 39 is just so, well, close to *whispers* 40. Ugh.
I currently weigh 15st 13lbs as I changed jobs and I am more sedentary than I was in my old role (I hadn’t realised how much running around I did in my old role!). I’m aiming to lose 3st 13lbs by my 40th, as my goal weight is 12st. As well as losing weight, the next calendar year holds a lot of fun things for me, including seeing both Niall Horan and Harry Styles live in concert (separately, not together). There are also things I cannot talk about at this moment, but no – I’m not pregnant!
I’m excited for the next 12 months, but dreading turning 40. It’s just so grown up! Especially as I still get ID’ed for alcohol!
I’m going to get together a list of “40 before 40”; 40 things I want to achieve before my next birthday. I’m just finalising the list and I will share it with you, once it’s been finalised!
It’s now less than 6 weeks to Christmas, so I’m going to focus on that. I hope you have a lovely day! 😊
