Where I'm Meant To Be?

I'm feeling a little low as today is the day I was planning to start my new life in America, but there's still no sign of my visa interview. My status has been the same since August 20th..'Ready for Interview'. Are they kidding?? I've been ready for 10 months....

So, I have to keep my spirits up and believe, that for whatever reason, I must trust in the Lord and accept that Im where Im meant to be right now. I wont let this frustration get to me, even though its so difficult. I will get there when the time is right. And when I get there, I wont have to leave again unless I want to.

Until then...I have a job to work at, family to spend time with, more weight to lose......and my wedding to plan

Sad Farewell

Its a sad day...I finally have to say goodbye to two old friends. They came back with me from California last year and we have been on many adventures together...walked many miles and seen many things. Best of all, they helped me lose 95lb and achieve my goal of climbing Holyhead Mountain. Im sorry they wont be with me when I return to the States, but they worked so hard and looked after me so well, they are now old, tired and worn out, I will miss them so much.... R.I.P x

Incentive.....




I have a new incentive to stick to my diet

My wedding outfit has arrived and I really like it.

I can reveal its quite simple..not white...and has no veil

Of course it looks better on the stick thin model...but what the heck

All I need now is my visa so I can wear it

Spot The Difference.....

I walked to meet my daughter from work. On the way back we passed the fire station and I was reminded that its almost a year since I had my photo taken with the fire truck in California. So what is a girl to do when confronted with a British fire engine..and a couple of handsome firemen.. Get my picture taken of course..


I shouldnt have worn such a baggy shirt but....What a difference a year makes!!

A Year Already....

A year ago today I flew out to the US to meet the woman I now call sister...and fell in love with the man I truly believe is my soulmate. I have no doubts or fears about my future..I have made many wrong choices in my life...but for the first time in a many years..I know I am doing the right thing. 


To my Sissy Sky...and the Love of my Life, My Jeff...I miss you and I cant wait to see you both again soon
