Well. The storm sure made life interesting yesterday. Got up for work, left the house, almost blew over. Went a bit further up the road, a huge gust blew so I turned my back to it, and was pelted with stones. Got further a long, another gust of wind blew bits of tree into my eyeballs. Literally could not see! Super watery eyes and everything.

Finally got to the bus stop, and later arrived at the train station. Walked into the station, and there's staff standing in front of the barriers, and people milling about. All the trains were cancelled! Ended up waiting around for 2 hours in the vain hope that the trains would get going again. As you may be able to predict, they didn't.

So I trudge back home to work from there in a limited capacity, checking the trains periodically. They weren't running until after 1pm, by that point it was not worth me going to work!

Despite being a huge pain, this did give me the chance to get through some of my old emails and catch up on a couple of things. And my sister made lunch for me! So it wasn't all bad ;)

I finally got around to organising my clothes into sizes! I thought there would be more size 16's, turns out I have more size 14's! Now when I get to those sizes I can just open up the bags and be like, 'Oh heyyy new clothes!' 

Very Exciting. Graduation and Grad Ball are looming, and I need outfits to wear for it - I did want to buy new dresses for them, then I decided on only needed a new dress for one. Now, I am re-wearing another dress for Grad Ball and wearing smart clothes for Graduation. Ohwell! No point in buying millions of new clothes when I don't need to...

I've set myself weigh rewards, so when I hit a particular weight I am allowed a treat - e.g. Get below 220 pounds, rewarded with a pasty / milkshake / chips. the ultimate reward IS TO BUY MYSELF A WHOLE NEW OUTFIT! Exciting... I'm hoping this will help me to avoid those foods until I hit the goal and can have it as a treat, otherwise it won't be a treat at all!

I'm sure there are more clothes hidden away in the boxes I've yet to unpack, but I think it's more socks and swimming costumes...Need to get on that and finish the unpacking! So close to finishing it!
