    Thank you to everyone for congratulations messages. 
    I haven't seen new DGS awake yet , he is always asleep when I have seen him. He is the image of his brother at the moment even down to his nose . 
    I seem to have become chief dog walker at the minute which I don't mind at all. My SIL looks rather tired as he is home schooling now and being the housewife . He said it's easier to go to work. 
    I have changed my May holiday to April next year  and feel better about that. We do have flights booked to Tenerife in late August hoping to go on that holiday . If things change significantly in the next few months can always book a last minute break but would rather have had both Covid jabs before I leave the country again. 
    Still not heard anything about my job but if I do stay on the grade am thinking of dropping down to 3 days a week but all up in the air at the minute . 
    With walking the dog and another trot out to help a neighbour I have achieved my 10,000 steps easily, but boy it's chilly out there. 
    Going to read my book again now .

    Really busy work wise today but all ok. Loved walking at lunchtime today in the sun. Even though it was cold it felt like Spring was around the corner . 
    I remembered to drink water today , it had gone by the board recently but managed 2 litres no issues . 
    My weight loss has stalled I only lost half a pound last week , I am looking forward to getting back to swimming when we can, that will help weight loss. 
    Have a good evening everyone

    I’m missing my swimming too SG. I’m itching to give it a go as I haven’t been since I was in hospital. It was great to gauge my fitness last time - started off managing half a length worked up to about 30.
    Lol at your sil - they don’t realise how hard looking after littlies and a house can be 😂😂
    im glad you’re enjoying the dog walking.

    When it’s cold it seems harder to drink water. I’ve got two of those water increment bottles that I store in the fridge and I try to make sure they’re empty by the end of the working day. Hopefully you’ll be back to your swimming soon.
