Fifteen years ago today in the middle of one of the hottest summers ever my elder son was born.
We've had a lovely day chillaxing at home. We completely surprised the birthday boy by giving him a laptop. We've spent the last three years telling him a laptop was way too expensive for a birthday present (it is...way too much). Younger son was almost as pleased as his brother because not only does he now have almost unlimited access to the desktop pc he knows he can look forward to receiving a laptop for his 15th birthday. Let's hope they're cheaper by then.
I haven't forgotten that today is Weight Loss Wednesday. I am very pleased to report another 2 lbs off! I honestly didn't think I'd lost any weight this fortnight. I don't feel that I've been eating any less and I certainly haven't been moving more. All in all I have lost half a stone which feels like a fairly significant amount. You can't tell by looking at me though! I've lost track of how long I've been trying to eat a bit less but I reckon it's about three months which means I should reach my goal weight sometime around May 2012. My first goal is only one lb away though :o)
