Move more, spend less, feel good…


In this installment I get a little bit active (shock horror!), spend a little bit of cash (oh yes!) and have a little bit of fun (whoop whoop!). πŸ™‚

Move more:Β Now that I can move without crying and get myself onto the floor, I have been a good girl with my physiotherapy exercises and have progressed to a six-week class of strengthening circuits and pilates (spell check wants me to put ‘pirates’ here…there were no pirates…I swear!). It really made me think about my positioning and how I walk and sit and hold myself. AfterΒ 60 minutes of fairly tame exercises I was sweating and totally knackered and could hardly walk up the stairs the next day…I am so so sooooooooo unfit. Baby steps…

Spend less: As soon as my self-imposed spending ban was over and October 1st rolled around, out came the credit card…I just couldn’t help myself! First on the list were two pairs of Pretty Small Shoes with an excellent 20% off offer to tempt me. Photos to follow when I have got my little paws on them. I do feel that I have been reigning it in a bit more with my makeup and beauty products, ‘shopping my stash’ instead of hitting the shelves, however the Christmas collections that are starting to pop up all over the place are killing me! I am trying my hardest not to look…but I can’t help it! There are things I just NEED! I have my eye on the Urban Decay Vice 4 paletteΒ which I will buy…cos, you know, I am a collector! πŸ˜‰ And also all the lovely things the temptress that is SephoraΒ has to sell with its easy and cheap delivery to the UK. How can a girl resist? Seriously…how can I? I keep looking at the website, loading my cart, emptying it…repeat. For now the cart is empty…for now…

Feel good: This week has been busy socially for me. I had two trips out during the week…on a school night I know! On Tuesday night I went to seeΒ The HoosiersΒ who were performing locally at the Holmfirth Picturedrome. They are still as good as I remember and I had a great night.Β I grabbed tickets to the Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo at the Bradford Alhambra TheatreΒ for Wednesday night and it was AMAZING! I laughed so much and I would highly recommend having a look at their tour schedule…if they are anywhere near you and you like theatre, dance and comedy it’s a must!Β One of my favourite US drag queens and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 4, SharonNeedles, is at the Leeds Viaduct ShowbarΒ on Sunday and I have tickets for that too…I can’t wait!
