  @Davina
Dear Davina:
Yes indeed, working on shrinking the middle one can be quite a difficult task, especially seeing all the good things that you cook and bake....   willpower can be very tough for sure.

Wishing you well with getting your measurements where you want them....

I find it interesting that you posted your measurements in the Imperial (USA) system instead of Metric.
    122,  112,  112  cm

Personally I like the smaller numbers in the imperial system for the measurements....   on the other hand I like the Metric system when I weigh myself:  128 pounds  =  58 Kg     

Wishing you well, and thank you for keeping your thread updated for me and the rest of your followers.
HUGS,
Danielle

I think everybody is suffering from some kind of cabin fever:  the people with kids at home, the people without kids at home, adults who have moved back in with their parents and the kids whose parents have moved in with them.  Its a psychiatrists dream.

Davina I am so glad for you that the family is around but not on top of you.  It's nice to have a balance.  My son and I work together three days a week from my home...just enough for both of us.  I am really impressed with your baking skills.  I always loved tea time in England.  Something that never caught on here.  I am not a Starbucks fan.

Thankfully they have allowed restaurants to open in NY but only with outside seating.  Every bar is now a "restaurant"...people can be very clever.  Necessity truly is the mother of invention.

I frankly don't know how you read the automotive electrical schematics, with or without glasses.  I would wind up with a large "planter' in my yard. ;D

Well it was hot yesterday and more of the same but of course that will spark of thunder storms (normal for here) . It was 28C in my flat at 11pm and still 26C at 7am this morning , slept okay though with just a sheet over .
 Had a dream I was at a car show , for some reason had a large white US car ! Anyways the point is I had to redo my lipstick and touch up make up --------

Yay for age fail, congrats Davina! Funny how a 16 year old hopes for age fail in the other direction

After fitting the engine to bus with help from youngest I was totally bushed , still sore today. Its coming together though, have 3 weeks of furlough left . They want everyone back by end of July, knew that would happen as thats when they have to fund 20% of furlough pay . TBH dont want to go back.
Well that gives me 3 weeks to lose enough from my waist to get back into work trousers .

@davina61
Dear Davina:
I am glad that you are keeping busy and active while on furlough....   
... regarding getting back into your work trousers....  3 weeks is plenty of time to lose a good amount of weight... just be focused on the task, watch out for any excesses in your eating ,... and keep active.

OH, how is your wrist and hand that you hurt last year on the job?   Is it OK and fully healed now?

HUGS and best wishes to you.....
Danielle

Wrist is clunky, have to be careful what I do. Over did it TBH the last couple of days working on bus putting motor back in as that entailed lifting it by hand from engine stand and putting it on trolley  jack. Hand is not the only bit hurting!!

Not looking forward to going back to work, feeling shattered from working on bus so dont know how I will manage with a full manic days work. Tossed a coin to see if I should go back! damn work won .
Panel van coming on, hope to start engine tomorrow and new screen being fitted tomorrow afternoon as well. Looking at getting an industrial grade sewing machine to make seat covers , another skill to learn.

Davina I agree with you about work.  The password I chose for my work computer is "2Quitnow".  I also play the lottery... :D

Yes I waste my hard earned taking a punt, best I get is a free go------------
Thought my washing machine had blown a gasket, turns out drain is partly blocked so as pipe from machine goes into a stand pipe it was overflowing in the cupboard where it is . Drain cleaner then .
Cooking today, had some spinach sauce left over from curry and some beef curry that I made that was tough so combined both and left it on hob for an hour on a simmer. Nice and tender now, also made a big batch of mixed veg curry.

Well no rush getting panel van done as shows are all cancelled , not unexpected just waited for confirmation. Run out of money to do interior as I want any ways so chance to save up .
Strange dream , at auto jumble  and worried that my wig was showing and face hair as well . Bought jewellery ---------

A decent nights sleep so feeling better today, its windy as at the moment . Rattling the sash windows and blowing the trees about. Decided its time to retire my short wig, only been using it to work on panel anyway so my old "best" is now my working one. I did wear it to work for the 3 days before furlough.
Thinking about letting my (what I have) hair grow out and just getting a topper ? Have hair all over as some has come back but its so wispy and thin on the crown so don't know . Its the only thing that I am dysphoric about .
