YAY! TOOT TOOT! New slimline version of me!

Well following this I can confirm that finally, following serious hard graft and food denial, I have started to lose some weight. Last week I managed to lose 2lbs and this morning I have weighed myself again to find I’ve lost another 2lb. However I’m now walking around like an old woman as running club was a killer last night. My muscles seriously ache…..no pain…no gain!

Looney laws!

UK chooses ‘most ludicrous laws’

The UK’s top 10 most ridiculous British laws were listed as:

  • 2. It is an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing the British king or queen’s image upside-down (7%)
  • 3. It is illegal for a woman to be topless in Liverpool except as a clerk in a tropical fish store (6%)
  • 4. Eating mince pies on Christmas Day is banned (5%)

  • 6. In the UK a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants, including in a policeman’s helmet (4%)
  • 7. The head of any dead whale found on the British coast automatically becomes the property of the King, and the tail of the Queen (3.5%)
  • 8. It is illegal not to tell the tax man anything you do not want him to know, but legal not to tell him information you do not mind him knowing (3%)
  • 9. It is illegal to enter the Houses of Parliament wearing a suit of armour (3%)

    After 18 months+ of waiting patiently I now have a new (to me) speedier, healthier computer. My old PC was 8 years old, and to be fair has put in a good effort. I’m not sure how old this little fella is, but it was given to me by my brother 18 months ago. I LOVE IT! When my ex tried to get it up and running for me last year, he tried flashing on the wrong bios. DOH! PC no like and promptly kicked the bucket. I finally got round to buying a new mobo last week and my ex came round and fitted it. Everything seems to be working hunky dory. It’s had a few wobbles when accessing my camera and MP3 player, but apart from that it’s ticking over like a beauty. It also means I now have sound…..I’ve been deficient in the audio department for 3 years (gulp)! Now I can fully appreciate YouTube et al!
