you have done so well with your weight loss!

I have lost 13lb since 13th April. Life keeps getting in the way!

7 more weigh-ins for me before we go! eeek.

We are there at the same time and we are staying in a villa on Sunset Lakes.

So can't wait!

Like to see my boys wearing the same clothes! But then again, they will be 18 & 13 whilst we are there! hee hee

Look forward to reading more.

Hello everyone and thank you for the lovely comments.

Well, we've only got 6 days to go and we've spent the last week doing a rather Peter Kay like "This time next week ... this time in 10 days... " We're getting just a little excited!

It's been a dull few weeks of getting ahead on maintenance for the house/car before we go away (only 2 new tyres needed to pass the MOT, to my great relief) and doing the admin tasks related to Florida, like online check ins and printing various documents. I've not even done much shopping ...



no, that's a complete lie I should have called this trip report 'Shopping with Rista' really.

My big news recently is that I reached my target with Slimming World 2 weeks ago - I've lost 4st 6lbs altogether (some at home, most at a group). I'd held off shopping until I'd reached my goal, so now I can have fun!

No pictures of these, but a Pep and Co has recently opened near me, so I picked up some bargain cotton/linen shorts for 3 a pair. I got them in black, light blue, floral print and pink. They're the perfect length for me and very lightweight. I also picked up bright patterned pac-a-macs for the girls reduced from 6 to 3 - they're as light and small as ponchos but much more durable.

I finally took the plunge (if you'll pardon the pun ) and bought some swimwear. Gossard has an amazing sale, so I bought a swimsuit and a bikini (well, 2 bikini tops and 1 pair of briefs as they're mix and match, and I couldn't decide between the styles of top).

Sienna Plunge Swimsuit, reduced from 60 to 12.


And the retro button bikini - 4 (was 19) for the briefs, 7.50 (was 38) for the strapless top and 5.50 (was 28) for the triangle top. So massive savings compared to the RRP.


They arrived this morning and they are fabulous! Amazing quality and fabric. I felt like a Bond girl in them

I bought some Primark skechers style trainers for myself 8 and my mum bought some trainers for the girls.



I've also bought lots of little things for the girls on the plane, like colouring books, games and crafty bits. Plus lots of holiday essentials, like calpol sachets, stomach upset medication and sunscreen.

DH, so far, has bought a pair of shorts I'm dragging him to the shops on Monday.

This week, I'm going to have a final search for some wedge sandals that don't have ankle straps (do these even exist? ) and I've got appointments booked with the hairdresser and beauty parlour. We're borrowing suitcases from family and they're on holiday until Weds, so Thurs and Fri are going to busy days for me as I get everything in order and probably have a last minute panic about things I've forgotten!

Hope everyone's plans are going well - I'm not an Olympics fan, so my plan this weekend is to catch up on everyone's trip reports
