20th April 2011

Remember that what you believe will depend very much on what you are. Noah Porter
What an amazing day yesterday, 5 of my members achieved the goal and became a Weight Watchers gold member, absolutely brilliant and well deserved.

I’m trying to find a balance between doing the things I usually do and the tasks mom usually does, i.e. washing up (my hands are so dry!), washing clothes and this morning I must remember to do the bins! Oh the life of a domestic goddess is never done, I slept well though, I can tell you ;-)

I was almost caught out by a bargain  yesterday! I picked up a reduced pizza to tempt mom with as she hasn’t been eating (it worked by the way) and when I got to the till the lady informed me that I get 2 free garlic breads with the pizza, one half of me is thinking ‘o no, I’ll eat them’ and the other half of me’s thinking, ‘o yes, I’ll eat them’. I wasn’t not going to have free food, I’m sorry that’s just the logical me. So I did at least pick up the lower fat version, and for my lunch I had beef slices (3pp) (also reduced), with lots of salad and 10pp worth of the garlic bread, absolutely delicious and worth 13pp.

As I’m a bit rushed this morning, it’s bin day ;), I’m going to finish my blog early, I will leave you with this little tale that dropped into my email inbox yesterday and made me nod in agreement.

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package.
"What food might this contain?" The mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed this warning:
"There is a mousetrap in the house!
There is a mousetrap in the house!"

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, "Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it."

The mouse turned to the pig and told him,
"There is a mousetrap in the house!
There is a mousetrap in the house!"

The pig sympathized, but said, "I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray.. Be assured you are in my prayers."

The mouse turned to the cow and said,
"There is a mousetrap in the house!
There is a mousetrap in the house!"

The cow said, "Wow, Mr. Mouse. I'm sorry for you, but it's no skin off my nose." So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer's mousetrap .. Alone...

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house - the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey.
The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it. It was a venomous snake whose tail was caught in the trap. The snake bit the farmer's wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital. 

When she returned home she still had a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup. So the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup's main ingredient – chicken!

But his wife's sickness continued.

Friends and neighbours came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.

But, alas, the farmer's wife did not get well... She died.

So many people came for her funeral that the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them for the funeral luncheon.

And the mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.

So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and you think it doesn't concern you, remember - When one of us is threatened, we are all at risk. We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.



One of the best things to hold onto in this world is a FRIEND.

Today, go out and realise we all need each other, and maybe even tell a friend or loved one how important they are in your life. xx
