Welcome to my first blog, today is a lovely day and Im stuck inside, my thoughts are of all the things I could be doing if I were at home, instead Im trapped in a dark office inside a cold shed, at least its Friday though so it wont be long and the weekend will be here.

I woke very early this morning and couldnt get back to sleep as usual, I quietly went into the dressing room so as not to wake my sleeping husband, I dressed myself and then decided it was time to have a clean out of all the jeans and shirts I no longer wear because somehow they have shrunk in the washing process, it couldnt be because I have put on weight, that would never happen, not to me.... The Queen of Cake!

I culled various pairs of jeans ranging in size from 12 to 16 (how does that happen) I also cleared out a lot of shirts for the same reason as before (they shrunk in the wash) and things I havnt worn in a long time.

I kept the token pair of size 11 jeans just to say I was that thin once and a lovely dress that I cant bare to part with because its groovy, I only ever wore it once and then that shrank to (food can be an evil thing)

I also had some maternity clothes and some presents people had given us for the baby that sadly never arrived.

A lot of the gifts were still wrapped in their pretty little baby papers and ribbon but whats the point in keeping something that I will never get to use. (I miscarried at 12 weeks and two years later have discovered that would be the closest we would ever get to having a baby)

I loaded everything into the car and we dropped them off at the local Salvation Army Thrift Shop on our way to work this morning, it always feels very cleansing to do that sort of thing and Im sure it wont take me long before my shelves are again packed with things that dont fit because they shrank in the wash.
A lot of things in life arnt fair, a love of good food and weight gain are two of them, Bugger!
