    Hi everyone.

    If you are waking up to snow this morning, hope you are all safe and warm-ish!

    If you think you might get stranded, please remember to have water with you along with some food or a ‘snack’. After wls, we feel the cold so badly don’t we? We also use up more energy trying to keep warm so make absolutely certain you don’t skip any meals (I’m guilty of it πŸ™ so this is not a nag!) If you are at home, turn up your heating and drink plenty of hot drinks.

    If all else fails, get outside and have FUN FUN FUN!! It’s something many of us couldn’t consider before wls!

    Stay safe and warm everyone xxx

    I’m so lucky. My lovely little sister (she’s ten years younger than me but 5″ taller!) makes all my soups for me. She freezes them in soup bags and delivers them. She moved to the Isle of Wight last summer but still brings my soups. What an absolute treasure. Broccoli and Stilton, mixed root veg, leek and potato and spring veg. I sprinkle Parmesan cheese on the top for protein or a blob of crΓ¨me fraiche. Handsome, as my Londoner Dad says πŸ˜‰

    I was snowed in at home. I would have had to walk hours to the train station through the woods (only a 15 min drive on a dual carriage way but on foot you have to walk through the woods to get to the station). My mum wouldn’t drive in the snow, can’t say I blame her. Luckily my boss said don’t risk it, which was good because the train I would have had to take home was cancelled and I really don’t think I could of walked over 2 hours in snow, in the dark, in the woods. Scary! Unfortunately we don’t get paid if we don’t go in despite trying which is frustrating. I made myself feel better by doing a couple of good deeds, I went and saw all the old ladies in my road and asked them if they needed anything doing. I got a good shopping list and walked and hour and half there and back to the shop for them (before it got too thick) with a big heavy back pack on so I got a great work out. Felt really good to help people but more so because last timed it snowed I wouldn’t have been able to walk up the drive let alone all that way. That is a great feeling and I’m glad to know they are all ok too. Plus fed the birds in the garden and the woods. Don’t forget them if you have a garden πŸ™‚

    Stay safe and warm everyone and enjoy lots of low fat yummy soup and casseroles πŸ™‚ xx

    Hi Guys

    Did any of you get properly snowed in? We did. In the end we took the dogs for a walk along by the river. it was SO cold but very, very pretty.

    We leave food out for the wildlife as we live on the edge of a 40 acre copse. we even get deer in the back garden! Hope you are all safe and warm as there is more to come according to the met office.
