"" PEOPLE SHOULD THINK TWICE ABOUT MAKING RUDE REMARKS," SAID MRS. LAMBCHOP. "AND THEN NOT MAKE THEM AT ALL.""

Reading: Flat Stanley- Jeff Brown.

Celebrating the first outing of my new kindle (replacing  the broken one bought for Christmas) I couldn't help downloading 'Flat Stanley' by Jeff Brown, me and my sisters favourite children's story. I love the bit where he gets posted to California in an envelope- I used to think that you could really do that if only I was flat.

Its strange that even though I pretty much know every word- I still enjoy reading it. Has anyone else read 'Flat Stanley'? Or has an equally fantastic children's book?

On to further good news- I won the February & March incentive at work and finally received my prize last week!


The best thing about winning NHSP is that you win it purely by working over 15 shifts in a two month period (which is no problem for me as I worked about 40). So I won by doing the job I love! I choose to convert my incentive to high street vouchers.

Although its slightly selfish of me picking clothes (rather than something like Argos vouchers so I could get a pc, or use them when I move out), I desperately needed new clothes, something that on a student nurses budget I can't really afford. As the worse part of losing weight is that all of a sudden your whole wardrobe doesn't fit anymore, and as I lost it in less then 6 months it wasn't even like I could buy clothes as I went along. Plus any clothes I still had that would fit I choose when I was fatter only because they fit and not because I liked them. They didn't really show any of my personality at all, not like the clothes I had pre-uni (that a selfish ex of mine made me throw out as they were 'inapprorite').

So here is a little haul.



Purse: Topshop, Peace earrings: Topshop, Eye earrings: Topshop, Finger ring: Topshop, Eyeshadow: Topshop.

This is by far my favourite purchase, this khaki cut out top from Topshop. I though I would hate it at first (as it has big cuts missing) but I tried it on and loved it! So I even bought it in black. (the black jeans in the pictures are also from Topshop but I bought them about 4 years ago before I put on weight and was super excited when I got back into them- although they seem to be an inch or too too short so get to be sexy cropped trousers).

It feels selfishly nice to own expensive clothes (Topshop is expensive to me).
