I have recently found out that I am going to become an aunty again. I currently have 4 nephews and 1 niece all under the age of 3 years old. I also have a sort of nephew - my best friends little boy who is 13months old. We have known each other since we were 4 years old so are more like sisters hence why he is like a nephew to me and I am also his Godmother. Hopefully the new baby will be a 2nd niece for me to sew for as that is one of my aims this year - to sew more for the babies. My family is growing so fast it is hard to keep up.
On the other hand hopefully my waist is going to shrink just as fast - or at least before the summer. I had a hernia operation just over 2 years ago and put on about 2 stone due to not being able to exercise and being stuck at home all day with only my sewing to keep me going. It didn't really bother me at first but now that I still haven't been able to shift the weight I am starting to get a bit down about it. I lost about 1/2 a stone but have recently put that back on. I am now serious about losing the weight and have about 2- 2 1/2 stone to lose. I have started Zumba and am aiming to lose a couple of pounds a week. I will blog about my progress.
