Good morning all.
I hope you are well.
Hubby went on ok yesterday and now has the blood pressure monitor off, he has to go back to the doctors again in 2 weeks and has been told he needs to lose around 3 stone in weight, so the journey begins.
We tidied the garden together yesterday, I mowed, hubby edged the lawn and I weeded the paths and hubby brushed it up.I then made us a nice yummy slimming world Thai Chicken salad whilst my laddo had a chicken dinner.
