Lots of little mice, all in a row...

Well, it has been one of those incredibly busy weeks that seem to crop up every now and then. Archie had his school boat day where they sail, kayak and fish all day (with lots of fun in the build up) and I started something new. I am kind of a bit embarrassed but I figure it is worth being honest about my recent activities because you never know, someone else out there may be in a similar position...
I am going to whisper it; "I started Weight Watchers on Tuesday". I hope no one overheard as it feels like such an odd thing for an adamant non-dieter to admit to. The problem is however, that I have put on a lot of weight in a short time and I don't feel healthy or even slightly fit. I am worried that if I don't act now and reassess my changing metabolism, my weight will continue to spiral and I really don't want to keep buying new clothes every few months to catch up.
So far so good. Lots of point counting but I don't seem to be missing out on good food at all. It has also been beneficial to be reminded that baking is really not as important a food group as I my head would tell me.
So there is my week's confession. Oh yes and I went to aqua aerobics the other night which turned out to be much better than I was expecting (so supportive too). Aside from that I have been busy finishing my mouse necklace which was given to the birthday girl this morning. I will start thinking about tutorials next week. Have a good weekend, xxooxxooxx.


  1. Wow that necklace is just fab, clever you. As for WW go for it!

  2. Wow! The necklace is sensational. Absolutely gorgeous Kate

  3. Hmmmm may have to join you for the WW thing. I mentioned it to Mum the other day . . . what a coincidence

  4. I love that necklace! I would purchase it for myself, just to hang on a hook and love. It's the cutest thing EVER.

    I'm working on the waistline too. My strategy is to eat about half of what I was eating. That should do me just fine. Also, walking daily and lots of water. Good luck and know you're not alone, by any means!!!

  5. The mouse&flower necklace is so cute, it is going to make someone very happy!

    Good luck with your WW! A good friend is having great success with it currently. Kudos to you!

  6. WW is nothing much to be ashamed of : ) I joined after having my eldest and lost nearly 30kg! i would join again to lose my excess flabbiness now too, but alas, the budget doesn't allow! There's nothing like having someone else weigh you to motivate weightloss!
    Good luck. and I love the wee mice, I would totally wear that.

  7. Necklace gorgeous, your ideas just keep coming!!!!!!!!! You are beautiful whatever weight you are[ and just as creative!] but I know you have to feel fit to live life to the fullest and also you just might get to the same size as your mother and that would never do!!!!!!!!!!!! And the mice are really fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Mum

  8. My girls adore that necklace - such a sweet idea.
    I joined slimming world last year (vast amounts of baby weight and vast amounts of cake = big, big lady)and although I don't love the whole thing I have lost 2 and a half stone - so it is definitely worth sticking to it!

  9. WOW WOW WOW!!!!! It's FABULOUS! Kate, this isn't a request, it's a plea to do a pattern for us, I just LOVE that necklace, and want to make one for myself immediately. I think I need to round up some commenters to push my plea along. This is going to sound weird, but I'm so glad you're trying to lose weight too,(!), I just started to try and lose a bit of weight myself this week, mainly because I realised that my waist-line is now rather matronly, and I don't have an excuse like "I've just given birth". I too feel a bit sheepish about revealing this! Anyway, your necklace is a triumph, a stunner infact, and I hope that little girl realises just how fortunate she is in receiving that (I'm starting to sound jealous, aren't I!). Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  10. OHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhh those little mice!! I love them!! What a fabulous and unique necklace, you're very clever and Im very inspired to try and make mice now lol!
    As for WW, well done - did it myself a few years ago when I ballooned and I found it to work well for me!
    Good luck with it!

    Much love
    Julia x x x

  11. I love the necklace. Love. I need some more fitness in my life. I have been stopped by all this snow (and all the heat before that, then all the cold before that, etc...).

  12. The little mice are really cute and such pretty colours. Well done on joining WW. I have lost 3 and a half stone with WW over the past year and it's really changed my life and it's such a good regime. Not fiddly or faddy and you can eat the food you like and just count points not calories. Lots of luck Penny (Planet Penny)

  13. Hi - I love this cute necklace.

    I have given your blog the "Sunshine" award - please come to my blog and pick it up. :)

  14. Everything full of colour !!! Venry nice your blog , from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Bolmara.
