My latest 365 photos, the UKBlog Awards and a snap shot of my secret eating regime.

 January 6th ... I went to work this morning and the sky was beautiful. It was almost as if the sky was on fire behind the clouds. It was my first day back after the Christmas holidays and it was so lovely to see everyone again.

January 7th ... I have decided to write down, on a curl of paper, the things that make me happy or for which I'm grateful, and then pop them in this jar. There are a couple of things in there so far, but to be honest, the damn jar is so annoying as the clip doesn't work that well... By the time I've opened it and written my Happy Thought and then tried to close the thing again I'm in need of a glass of wine.

By the way ... in a mad moment I entered the UK Blog Awards. I really don't know what I was thinking ... probably a moment of extreme neediness mixed with arrogance. I looked on their website today and it seems that any blog I've ever read is on there. I don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of winning anything as there are some massive blogs written by people who work damn hard at their sites. But, you never know. There might be a wooden spoon prize!! If you fancy voting for my blog then I'd really appreciate it ... you can get to the voting page by clicking on the button at the top right of my page. If you don't fancy voting then please don't worry!!!

Right. I'm going to bed to read my book ... I'm reading The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths .... which my friend has lent to me. Let's hope I manage to get to sleep before 2 a.m tonight. I seem to be going through a bout of insomnia and just can't get to sleep at night. It might have something to do with my new eating regime. Well, when I say regime it sounds a bit bleak, but its working and I am enjoying my food. Its just that I'm not eating very much and certainly no fatty, creamy foods like before. I just feel "awake" !! All the bloody time!! Which is great in some ways - I feel alert and happy - but awful in some ways as being wide awake at 2 in the morning when you've got to be up at 6.30 is a pain.

Anyway ... that's me. Photos done for my 365 day challenge, Blog Award begging done, and brief mention of secret diet/exercise regime which I am hoping will turn me into a gorgeous Snap Dolly for my 50th birthday in March.

Night night all!

Good on you for entering the Blog Awards, Sarah. You definitely deserve it in my eyes :) In fact, I'm writing about your blog today in an assessment piece for uni - 'My favourite blog' (hope you don't mind!). xx
