Easter is over , the snow is almost ( but not quite gone ) , I woke at three four and then five am feeling very frightened of something though I couldn't quite put my finger on what , though the words( or concept) that sprang to mind were "scary pancake " . Mke what you will of that .
Minus two on the beach and athough all went well , Alice managed to open up her wound somehow upon our return .
I headed off to the day job , just a morning stint though , packing up at two pm and heading for a CatCall and then the pool . Swimming has been neglected so much of late that my card has gone missing and at the final hurdle ( the changing into the swimsuit hurdle ) I bottled it and decided to head off into the gym instead . Much less bother in the changing , drying , hair fixing dept after the exertions and a pleasant half an hour was spent remembering how all the machines look .
Immediately prior to leaving work , and notwithstanding the small carton of cottage cheese I ate instead of my usual bag of Starbucks coffee and cakes , the stud holding my jeans popped off . My final pair that fit me now gaping open like all the rest , so I call at Silverlink and try on a replacement pair ... result , one pair in my size! I begin to wonder whether all this belly expansion may signify something out of the ordinary , perhaps a large cyst filling with fluid ?
So much pleasanter than facing facts and recognising that I am gaining weight and just dont want to admit it ...?
Now how many Easter eggs are still to be consumed ?

Hi Shelagh I also wake sometimes in a panic for no obvious reason its scary! mind you the last time was during the earthquake! I have sent you 2 photos 1 of fli and 1 of smeagoul who is staying with us, he is very vocal!
been looking for a birthday present for Rob I usually go for an animal adoption, but decided on a tree dedication, up in the Highlands of scotland, we have been on 2 coach tours up there and fell in love with it, so soon there will be an extra 2 trees in the forest!
Take care
