I keep saying i'm buyin' nothin' else till I drop a few pounds .Then I see somethin in a window and I've got to get it .I've been trying to buy stuff I can alter a wee bit to fit if I can lose some weight .
All my life I was a big skinny bugger .Could never see me as heavy .This summer has finally made me realise I have to lose a few pounds .I leave clothes behind every year ,summer stuff I won't need till I get back the next year .Well a lot of the stuff I left is a wee bit tight so I've made myself a promise to get back to the gym and work out .Food all summer long has been to good but it's back to plain claes and porridge next Saturday ,OOPs forgot about Thanksgiving dinner .Lets say a week from Tuesday I'll go down to the gym and get myself in shape .
Noo I've been reading back on these posts and there is no way we auld yins are giving up our special wee place .Those that don't like it don't need to come into it .I for one don't even visit the posts they call their own .Lets us Red Hat Ladies keep oor wee special place .If the best of the younger generation like to be in here with us auld yins then more power to them .come on in Keelie and Java and Catherine and Tammy and my goodness I don't need to call you in .This is a very special space for young and old .Old members and new .You'll never go away hungry from a visit to Betty 2"s
betty2
Amen tae that jakka, ah think efter 6 years it speaks fur itself. So whit if some choose tae body swerve it , this place has hud merr comebacks than Frank Sinatra biggrin.gif So ah,ll continue tae pick masel up dust masel doon an start aw ower again. The door is always open an its comfy in here rolleyes.gif

Hi ALL ,Well the wedding went off without any hitches. What a fantastic day it was. So lucky with the weather all the previous week. On Friday we were all eating out in the garden till about eleven at night. Saturday was just perfect.Still got my Glasgow family here however they go back on Wednesday night. They have had a great time. Could not believe the weather here for this time of the year. Anyway I am having a problem in the gallery I have managed to block all the pictures there and I am seeing nothing. Once I get myself sorted out I will post a few wedding pictures. MAYBE SOME OF YOU CAN HELP .cATHERINE POSTED IN tEC SUPPORT FOR ME. Oh I am so daft I dont know what I did. so help.
wee mags
