Dressed for Reuben


My lovely friends Laura and Liz have a beautiful six week old baby and all three of them came for tea with Isla and I. Here I am in the garden with the oh so cuddle-icious Reuben Windsor-Welsh. I’m wearing leopard print top from Primarni, trousers from River Island and new lacy Toms.

I’ve had a lovely weekend celebrating Isla’s Birthday, party tea and a trip to good old Build a Bear.

Other exciting news is that I’ve been a week smoke free today. Some of you may find it strange that I was a smoker given my family’s history of cancer but stressful times led me back to the dreaded addiction. I’m really determined to quit for good this time, after all if I could give up shopping for a year this should be easy ;-)

Finally let’s get up to date with Mum’s posts….

February 28th….Chris’s birthday party- rather early because of Jean’s Golden Wedding. Wore black wool trousers (Boden), pink and grey leopard print cardi, black flat ‘ballet’ shoes, grey fleece, leopard print scarf and gloves, pink Macy’s bag.

March 2nd…..In to town with Olga. Quite a bright day but cold. Wore black jeans, pink cotton sweater, pink quilted coat and ‘bobbly’ scarf.

March 11th……Up at ‘The Roebuck’ with Dru and Chris. Wore grey trousers with pink stripe, grey sweater and pink duffle coat. A very enjoyable evening.

March 12th…..At St Barnabas for a concert with ‘Musical Friends’ Liz came with me and it was a really good night. A real tonic! Wore black Planet trousers, pink and grey leopard print cardi, grey fleece and grey leopard print scarf. Silver necklace (from Maureen) and matching earrings.

    well done vicky on the smoke free for a week. just to keep you going i will give you some valuable information that you may have not known. Believe it or not – the benefits to health start from within 20 minutes of you putting out your last cigarette. Your body will begin to repair the damage done through smoking almost immediately, kick-starting a series of beneficial health changes that continue for years.
    20 minutes: Your blood pressure and pulse rate return to normal
    8 hours: Oxygen levels in your blood return to normal.
    24 hours: Carbon monoxide has been eliminated from your body. Your lungs start to clear out mucus and other smoking debris.
    48 hours: There is no nicotine left in your body. Your ability to taste and smell is greatly improved.
    72 hours: Breathing becomes easier. Your bronchial tubes begin to relax and your energy levels increase.
    2-12 weeks: Circulation improves throughout the body, making walking and running a whole lot easier.
    3-9 months: Coughs, wheezing and breathing problems get better as your lung function is increased by up to 10%.
    5 years: Heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.
    10 years: Risk of lung cancer falls to half that of a smoker. Risk of heart attack falls to same as someone who has never smoked.
    so that is why you should keep up the good work vicky xxxx
