Street Party countdown

Plans for our Street Party are really starting to come together now.

The Facebook Page is up and running.  The raffle prizes are coming in thick and fast.  And half the leaflets are delivered.

And the best news of the day – Tesco Express Westoe Crown are supporting the event meaning we’ll raise even more money for the Charlie Cookson Foundation.

Watch out for announcements of some very special guests in the next few days.

Lose to win – Week 18

Diet wise, I’ve been good this week.

Except the couple of cakes I’ve eaten at work.  Apart from that I’ve been good.

Oh and the night with friends from work a leaving do.  So I’ve been pretty good.

And I almost forgot I went to the food festival where I ate and drank to much.  But apart from that I’ve been fairly good.

Apart from yesterday – when I had my Grandchildren to stay – and couldn’t resist the chocolate orange brownies.

So I’ve really, hardly been good at all.

Now I’m about to get weighed and am more worried than I was when I started writing this.  Ok here goes…………………..

It can’t be that bad can it?

And the result is……………….

12 st 5

Now that was a surprise. Not sure how (considering all of the above) but I’ve somehow actually managed to lose 2 pound.

I can only guess it must have been the Goat Curry or the amount of hot chilli’s I ate at the food festival – otherwise I can only assume that somehow the cake and chocolate and alcohol was calorie free – which I’m fairly sure isn’t true.

Anyway it means another £2 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation and after the gain a couple of weeks ago I’m back to only needing to lose half a stone to hit my target.

If you’re impressed with my success you can add to my £’s for pounds at or to donate by phone text FIFB50 £1 to 70070

And don’t forget I’m holding a Street Party to celebrated the Queen’s 90th Birthday and raise even more for the Charlie Cookson Foundation.  You can find out more or let me know you’ll be coming here.
