We Apologise for the Interruption

Sorry it's been a while since my last posting but I've had a bit of a hectic week meeting a work deadline and, more importantly, celebrating the small boy's 1st birthday! I can hardly believe it's been a whole year since he arrived; he is just the loveliest, happiest, cutest, most wonderful little boy ever (I'm his Mummy, I'm allowed to be biased!) and I absolutely wouldn't be without him (99.9999% of the time...)
Here he is, on his birthday trike:
News from Bandland:
I really wanted to be down to '16 stone something' in time for the small boy's first birthday but because there were no scales at hubby's parents' house, I don't actually know whether I made it; in the few days before we left I was hovering around 17st 0lbs and 17st 1lb and putting that together with the amount I ate over the weekend - it was party fare galore:Cake handmade by hubby - impressive, eh?!I get the feeling I didn't quite make my goal. When we got back yesterday I weighed myself and I was up to 17st 2lbs/240lbs (ouch) but today I was back to 16st 13lbs/237lbs - yay!

While we were away for the weekend I ate, and ate, and ate, and ate. Or at least it felt that way. I didn't eat as much as I would have/could have pre-band but I definitely ate more than I feel I should be able to. As a result, I've made an appointment for another fill tomorrow. But, you know what? Since we've been back home and I'm back to my routine, I've not eaten much nor have I had the inclination/appetite. So, do I still have a fill? Perhaps just a little one? I can always have an un-fill, can't I? Well, I'll go along anyway and talk to the surgeon, I'm sure he'll know the answer.


  1. I'm glad you are back!

    That cake is awesome. Your hubby did that? That is truly impressive for any home baker!

    I'll be curious to hear what the surgeon recommends re. a fill.

    And happy birthday to your son!

  2. Your little one is adorable!!

  3. 1. that little guy is so adorable..having a son is the best :)

    2. the cake.. um ..that's great..really, looks like a pro..

    3. i want to eat one of each yummy looking thing on that party table..

  4. Justine.. your little guy is just gorgeous .. Love his trike, love the cake and that spread is to die for.. how did you stay well behaved with all that food???

  5. Thanks for commenting on my blog!
    I'm thrilled to find someone else in the UK!!!
    Your son is gorgeous, hope he had a lovely day.
    Will read your blog today.

  6. Another note from me.
    I loved reading your blog, you talked about things I understood and places I know and its really comforting! My husband and I are also Corrie addicts, although the Gail business is getting on my nerves a bit (Gail is a fantastic name for a chicken btw!)

    I love all the other blogs too!

  7. I just found your blog and am loving it! Your little son is a doll. Looking at that table of food, I can see why a person might have a bit of a weight problem. Also that cake is amazing. Your husband is very talented.

  8. Hubby's very talented, Small Boy is ADORABLE & you are doing great! I go on Monday for my second fill. Some days I really need it & other days I get busy & forget to eat - strange.
