    I depressed myself by actually weighing myself today - found out I'm about 3 stone over my "optimum" weight for my height I mean bmi is rubbish at the best of times as it doesn't take into account that muscle weighs more than fat but some how I don't think I have 3 stone of muscle on me... *looks forlornly at spare tummy tyres* It's like that old tv ad where he gets pursued by the giant belly - well belly has well and truly gotten me!!

    Louise, I've just put on quite a few pounds looking at recipes for Kitty, they're all mega-calories.

    Off to check out the Canderel website.

    Marg
    Savvy - thanks for our shiny new thread. Hope things get better for you very soon.

    "I was hoping I wouldn't have to post this but whoever my secret Santa was I never received anything, my brother works for Royal Mail so I have asked him to check in the parcel office just in case

    Have spent a few pennies on things, although it is all items I really need so might try that stash ban myself now "


    Mad Frog - I'm so very sorry to read that. I do hope that whoever your Secret Santa was gets in touch and helps you to resolve this - lets hope they got a receipt for posting it to help Royal Mail.

    Rusty - Love the cake I thought the 'M' was for Marg Hope it's not the one Wifey's made for her DH, complete with Scotch egg.

    OAP - I'm another who should be 7'6" or to quote Garfield "I'm not overweight I'm undertall"

    Marg, don't know if you saw my post on the other thread but have blogged the card you helped me finish Quite literally couldn't have done it without you

    Mad Frog, Thank you soooo much for my lovely Christmas card, I loved the charm with the "hart's-horns" on, very clever, sorry I didn't return the kindness but time just ran out. I hope your secret santa gets in touch with you soon.
  • THE-WIFE
    Thank you for the link, flourgirl, off to check that out in a minute as I'm extremely unbusy here at work, nobody here so Wifey plays!

    Flourgirl - I think I emailed you to say thankyou for my christmas card, but in case I forgot (which is very naughty of me if I did) Thankyou!

    louise - Belly got me too!!

    Madfrog - I really hope you find out what has happened to your secret santa, maybe whoever organised it can tell you who it was so you can contact them? This is why I won't do the secret santa now, because both years I did it, I never recieved anything.

    Here is a copic link I am using at the minute, I have tried and tested some of these colours and they are fab!!

    Have any of you made cake pops? I am thinking of making some for OH's birthday, a friend of mine is making me 10 cupcakes for him, and I think we will be going out for a meal, but I might do a buffet tea on his birthday and leave the meal until the friday night so the kiddies can be up later etc!
