I know, right Harriet?? I gained some weight over the last few months of holidays and junk eating, and now Im struggling to get it off again. Its happening steadily but not fast enough for me! ;) LOL! Melanie
Anita - My therapist and I talked about my weight all of the time, back before I had my surgery. I was horribly depressed and I, too, am an emotional eater. I fired the therapist before that for being an insensitive prig. Ugh, I am so not looking forward to going through that whole finding-retelling process when we move. :\ Melanie
Bev, you make an excellent point about the way they drive, and Graces accident. We saw some insane(-seeming) driving there, too! :O :O Melanie
Gal: You just reminded me - Murder and Diagnosis did crossover TV episodes that had them featured on each others shows! Thats the one I saw! Melanie
Stacy - it was lovely! Ah, those were the days! Melanie
