Another Sunday, another newsletter. Did you change your clocks? – what time is it?
With the 1 year anniversary upon us this week of the pandemic it was hard not to miss the news on how our lives have changed so much.
On Tuesday I posted a picture of a candle at 8pm with the words:
Thank you to everyone that has supported me through what has been an extraordinary time in our lives. Love to you all Julie

50 years since Decimalisation to the new £50 pound note
The World War II codebreaker Alan Turing is the new face of the UK’s 50 pound note, the country’s highest denomination in circulation. The Bank of England unveiled the new note on Thursday, before it is formally issued to the public on June 23, Turing’s birthday.
1971 – 2021 50 years
Decimal Day in the United Kingdom and in Ireland was the day on which each country decimalised its respective £sd currency of pounds, shillings, and pence.
Taking place on 15 February 1971, before this date in the United Kingdom, the British pound was made up of 20 shillings, each of which was made up of 12 pence, a total of 240 pence. With decimalisation, the pound kept its old value and name, and the only changes were in relation to the subunits. The shilling was abolished, and the pound was subdivided into 100 “new pence” (abbreviated “p”), each of which was worth 2.4 “old pence” (abbreviated “d”). In Ireland, the Irish pound had a similar £sd currency structure and similar decimalisation changes took place.
50 pounds in weight = 3.5714 stone,
Spring into April weight loss £1 for lb
Spring into Spring with your new weight loss challenge.
Have you put on a few pounds in the time of lockdown, working from home, not exercising as much, eating too much, feeling that you have lost your motivation or all of them!
Thursday 1st April or today if you are ready. Get yourself motivated:
Clear out your fridge and cupboards of all your “naughties”
Pop on the scales and make yourself a weight loss card.
Grab the tape measure or an item of clothing that you would love to fit into again.
Find yourself a glass or a bottle that you can fill on the hour to drink plenty of water.
Portion control your plate – find a smaller one.
Eat a rainbow and vary your meals as much as you can.
Make alcohol a treat and not a habit.
This is my note for the fridge door – what is yours?
Ask myself “am I hungry”
Realise I have to be in control
I can do this
Little steps make big results
