Remember I said I was starting a weight loss regime?  Yeah you do.

I am happy to report that to date I have lost nine and a half pounds.  Doesn't sound much, but it's 19 packets of butter.  Or nine and a half bags of sugar.  Or a shedload* of satsumas.

It doesn't really show yet, as proportionally it is a mere drop in the ocean, but it's an achievement and I am pleased.

Other news:  Visa application saga continues, and is stressful, depressing and expensive.  I ended up having to take the afternoon off work as I was weeping uncontrollably after having to rummage through all the paperwork relating the the SSFH** to find the bits that the Embassy need.  So that was nice.

Tonight, by way of light relief, Mr WithaY and I are off out to see some mates for dinner and to participate in a mass Folding.  The parish magazine doesn't just staple itself, you know.

*The research team are still working on the details of this one.

Congratulations on your weight loss, if only I could say the same for me ;(
I must have missed something, why do you need a visa may I ask, or if too nosey I'll make up an answer.
Regardless, one out of two is good !

Hellish papers, can't look at them or touch them.

You've lost a good amount...a size or two.

I like that.. a mass folding or a Folding Mass....

ABiT, thank you. The whole sorry visa saga has not yet been explained fully on the blog. TO be honest I don't know if it ever will be. Suffice to say, the police significantly fucked up and we are paying the ongoing price emotionally and now financially.

Eloh, I know exactly what you mean about the papers.

The weight loss is too small to really show yet, although my wedding ring feels slightly looser.
