My reasons to be happy
Minxy did some fundraising earlier this year, she loves animals and helping others, and managed to raise £184 for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Her favourite magazine Animals and You will be featuring her story again in a round up so both her and I are really pleased she is getting recognition for her hard work - she read 50 books in 50 days! She is now fundraising for Barnardos too with their Care and Share challenge.
Another proud moment for Minxy this week as she got her second badge at brownies. It relates to the first post a little too as it's her Booklover award. She had a trip and tour around the local library yesterday and had to search for specific things. I'm pleased that she is making new friends there and always comes home smiling.
We had a Greek night at the weekend and it was fantastic! My parents were the hosts and my siblings and partners all went along too. I cooked a tomato and feta dish and made Baklava too which was loved by all. We also played poker til around 3.30am which I won having not played in years. It's lovely getting all the family together. We had such fun playing games

Weight loss is slow yet steady but that's what wins the race, right?! Hoping to lose a stone by Christmas and it seems possible.
