What a start to the month! JHogg took a trip to A&E for a dodgy shoulder. It turns out he has an impingement (rather than the dislocation we first suspected) and had to take some time off work. I took on the childcare and house work alone which was pretty tough! But we coped. Piglet

Well…… I tried right? Day 22: I forgot I was meant to be doing level 3 so did level 2 again – whoops! Day 23: I started swimming lessons with Piglet in the morning so Shred just didn’t really happen. Day 24: I squeezed in Shred early on – the way I planned when I decided to do

Day 15: Carrying on after the busy weekend. I did not badly and felt pretty fresh afterwards. Day 16: Managed to squeeze in Shred

We did pretty well last week – I think we only strayed from our plan once and had far less in the way of junk snacks. Here’s hoping this week is the same! The Adult’s Menu Monday: Mince and Tatties Tuesday: Toad in the Hole Wednesday: Chicken and Chorizo Risotto Thursday: Dinner at my mums after kettlebells Friday: Papa

We have always had the luxury of being a 2 car family. I know you don’t NEED a car to get around, but with Piglet in tow my life has always been made a lot easier by being able to just jump in the car. Not long ago my car started to play up. It
