A new start

For a while now I’ve been thinking about just having one blog again, with the reduction in post I’ve been getting and being ill for so long, I think now is the time to use this blog for more than a few pictures here and there again. I’ll keep the link to Munchy’s Place over there >>> as it still gets quite regular hits on the reviews and I really don’t want the hassle of trying to move those posts over here!lol

Anyway, a quick update, after being ill with my gallbladder for most of this year, I’m really pleased to finally have it all behind me, as of the 7th June I’m free of everything that was causing me pain so now I can get back on with the rest of my life YAY 😀

On Monday 10th June I started back on the Slimfast 3-2-1 diet, it’s going really well so far and I’m exercising as much as I can, slowly building myself up to where I was. I still have a vast amount of weight to lose but to me being fit is much more important. I really don’t mind being a bit cuddly and TBH I really don’t want to be that skinny but I do want to be fit and healthy while happy with my body image. Since the last update on the other blog (over a year ago I know!lol) I’ve not lost any weight, I’ve put a couple of pounds on BUT I haven’t put on any inches, infact I’ve lost some! A good example of this is my engagement ring, when Dave first got me one, it was too small (size S), we had to look online and find a different one in a size U which is the one those of you who know me have seen!

Well, do you remember this ring when it arrived and me saying it would be the replacement when it fitted me (it’s a size N) so, have a look here:


To say I’m happy would be a huge understatement, I adore this ring, the odd colours in it are just perfect!

I still have a lot to look forward to for the rest of the year, a beauty party next month thanks to Philips and Come Round (more to come on this later) a few family celebrations, house hunting (YAY fun!lol) & moving (Booo! not so much fun!lol) and then my favourite time of year, the silly season (see I didn’t use the ‘C’ word!) and I’m sure there is much more to come as well. I’ll do my best to keep this updated now, it might be as a post on it’s own or a bit on the end of a deliveries one (if many more come!lol) but at least I’ve made my life a bit easier by combining my blogs again 😀

Deliveries 9th November 2011 *UPDATED*

Yay another issue from my subscription, I think I’m about half way through that now, I’ll miss it when it’s over as at least with that I know I’m getting post every Wednesday!lol

The Organic Surge Bubble bath is from their Twitter feed and this is the Spiced Lily version and it smells lovely!


The two green and black items are flameless cookware, great for hiking and other outdoor persuits 🙂

The mugs, hot choc and heart I won from Galaxy in last months competition

This is the mug I won from iwoot’s Twitter feed, sadly it had an accident on it’s way to me 😦 BUT YAY for iwoot, they’re going to send me a new one 😀

Most of the items here are Dave’s goodies from Xscape Braehead’s Facebook page

I received the Johnson & Johnson items to review.

The nails have come from Elegant Touch on Twitter from a competition they ran last Friday

Deliveries 1st August 2011

The 19 boxes of Crunchy Nut Bites have come from the Crunchy Nut Facebook page, this is just over half of the years supply I won, the remainder is due to come later in the year!

I received another mask sample from the lovely people at Montagne Jeunesse although I only successfully applied for one, I’m not complaining that I get to try 2 🙂

The Nelsons Arnicare oil has come as a reward for doing a skin care trial for them, I love this stuff, it’s great for tired legs after a days walking so I’m really pleased to have received this

The Squares have come from the Rice Krispies Squares Facebook page and I’m going to keep 2 of these for me, I’ve been being so good on my diet, I deserve a treat!lol
