And I’m being a bit slow on the move through my Mission but…

Well, I’m still PADing and enjoying it and I’ve completed two challenges for the month – a nine-item scavanger hunt and a self-portrait – so go me!
I guess I’m a natural attention seeker but I’m really loving the PAD group’s feedback on my attempts at photography and even more so, looking at other people’s pictures. There’s so many talented people taking amazing and imaginative photographs, it’s inspiring me to read the book that’s sat on the shelf for a good few years.
It’s also terrible for making me think ooh I want one of those lenses! This could make for an expensive hobby.
Done – Merri has a bank account in her own name. Was only mildy traumatic taking both children to the bank and balancing a clip board on my knee to fill in the form, writing around Merri in the sling and herding Rhys up and away from the wiring. The patient customer service manager laughed at Rhys demanding to know what the tiny door in the wall was for but then he did go on to ask if I’d seen “Outnumbered”…
I haven’t gone to Monkey Music but I did take Merri to the Bumps and Rhythmes group at our local library this morning. A short session of singing and I was surprised at how much she enjoyed it – probably about as much as she needs music-wise for now and it’s free.
There’s a class for 6+ months babies in the community centre next door but by the time she’s old enough I’ll be close to working again and she’ll be at nursery. Sadly I’m not seeing how I’ll be able to keep up a music group for her once I’m back at work as the Tuesday Monkey Music group isn’t suitable for an exuberant 4-year-old.

Figuring I’ll probably need a bit of help on losing weigh, I’ve decided to join Weight Watchers online – it seems fairly sensible and do-able which I guess is the main thing. As I am breast feeding it won’t be a speedy loss but we’ll see how it goes.
I figure eating extra fruit and veg is only going to help with the above anyway, and they are mostly “free” on the plan anyway.
I’ve texted Kay and there’s a plan to meet some point soon. Must chase up and make cake. On a similar front, I’ve made a playdate for Rhys with another neighbour for next week which should be fun.
Ditched a stack of stuff – old crockery, soft toys, clothes – to the local charity shop. Was too lazy to count so I’ll estimate that was at least 40 things…
