To finally kiss the boy!
You'll notice, he doesn't look very distraught ... I even suspect him to somewhat appreciate the moment I also want to thank you for your nice and funny comments last time. They really made me smile or laugh
Yesterday was the first day of sale day!!! There is two seasons of sales in france: winter and summer. They both last one month. So I went out yesterday to try to get some clothes for the kids. I like to get it at 50 % I also checked the cross stitch online shops to see what goodies they have to offer but was rather disapointed ... I did find something for 2 of my PIF friends Can't tell you what of course but now THEY are going to think what it can be If you want to check the french web sites, click on the word " SOLDES " !!!
I don't have any cross stitch new year resolutions but like many of you, I have some health / weight related resolution. I want to loose weight. If you see my hidden ticker ( the one at the bottom of the blog ... ) , you'll see I have some weight to loose: minimum 5 kg (about 10 pounds ). Yesterday, when I tried some clothes I was desesperated ... They all fit so bad on me ... I bought 2 sweaters yesterday but it was really because I needed some. France is ruled by fashion: to look fine, you have to wear the clothes that are fashionable and the fashion for some time now is the close fitting clothes . With the 3 pregnancies , my weight is mainly around my belly ... so you can imagine how close fitting clothes can look on me IN Germany, at the base, I managed to buy Shape and Fitness magazines. In Texas I used to have a subscription to both. I always find them so motivating (with their success stories ) and full of tips on how to stay fit and live healthy. I always liked to excercice but now I have a bad knee so I have to be careful when I exercice. On monday, I started my program: mainly at home exercice. The one I know they work very well. I know I also need to add cardio. I am thinking on buying a DVD. Any suggestion? I don't want to be very skinny but I want to feel okay with the clothes I am wearing and be able to buy more fashionable clothes I am hoping to exercice 4 to 5 days a week !!! I did it this morning.
I scanned the head of my fairy so you can see a close up of what took me 3 times to stitch !!! Enjoy !
