And I nearly forgot ...

We have four new family members. They live in the pond and, no, I haven't given them names. Not yet anyway. We only bought four as we want to see how they survive George, the pigeons and life generally. At least one of them thinks he's a salmon as he keeps trying to leap up the waterfall; another one - or maybe the same one - got himself stuck in the fountain pipe.

And George has decided that fish food is tasty. So really we're not holding out much hope.
Yay! I lost a pound and a half this week making it one stone and one pound altogether and earning myself this certificate! Ideally I'd like to lose another half stone but already my clothes are loose and I feel so much not better.

What kind of stone did you lose? I hope it was a bit of old gravel and not a diamond, a sapphire, an emerald...

(sorry Liz, could not resist)

Oh, you must name them!

It was definitely an unattractive old stone, gledwood.

THanks, furtheron, cherrypie and mauigirl.

I'll see how long they survive before naming them, welshcakes. I don't want to have to go through the emotional wrench that would follow.
