My plans for the next week

I am off to Egypt!

Talk to yis next week!


Back to points!

Today I popped a button in my trousers…horror!

I have been putting this decision off for too long and too many Domino Sizzlers later-I am going back to Weight Watchers! There I said it…decision made…no going back! Will start week home from holidays-I dread to think of the damage done by that stage after all inclusive holiday-beer is my enemy!

I am 5ft2…nearly. I have never met a calorie I didn’t like-so every pound goes to two places-bum and boobs! My family affectionately call me lard arse and stumpy-bless them! My six year old cousin only 3 weeks ago told me I had chubby boobs! Could have been worse…told his Mammy she had a chubby bum!

I always carry weight…even at my lightest I wasn’t “thin”-but it suits me…to a certain degree!

Two years ago my weight went to highest ever 11st6lbs! I was going out with a marathon runner. Never again! I ballooned! Motivation came when he lovingly stroked one of my back boobs! I joined Weight Watchers in July 07 and by March 08 I was down to 9st7lbs! Major victory-battered sausages all round! I even gained a gold card and could sign up to be a leader…can’t imagine how shite I would be!

I have been in denial again for a while…but button popping in work left me nowhere to hide…its time to go back!

I am off on holidays on Thurs, dreading the perky boobed dimple free ass hottie at the pool! But I have decided week of June 8th is to be weigh in number 1! There will be tears!

Back to points…velvet crunch=1 point, fudge bar=2 points, Cup of coffee=1 point, BK Sweet Chilli Chicken Royale=7 points Coors light=3 for 4points. That’s my points done for the day!

I really need to prioritise the calories!!!

I will keep ye posted on the weekly weight loss-I know some of you won’t care-probably most-but its a way to keep me motivated! I wish I was brave enough to post a Woman’s Way Before and After Undies style photo!

Anyhow…off to make a sauso sambo…Nyom!



Friday Blunder!

As my LC Maths Teacher used to say in a bogger Kerry accent “Amy tá blunder deanta agat arís!”

Took part in @TheBigSwitchIRL Twitter competition today…was feeling confident after the bird pooping incident inné!

So I miss a darn Big Switch…

Roll on competition number two…

First person who finds or tweets the easter egg on >> gets a €200 shopping voucher

Happy days…off I trot to watch MORE Lucy…and look for an ACTUAL Easter Egg as the competition states!

Its in the car..I know it is…too many sneaky shots in the car!

8 episodes of the Lovely Lucy and spooky giant switches and I give up!

Back to Twitter…everyone tweeting frantically “Is it the lamp that you can switch on and off?” WTF!?

Darragh Doyle and Wilkepedia to the rescue…

Ah its a “Virtual Easter Egg” reference…Ooopsies!

Well done @eolai who won!

Next time I’ll ask…however I have now been brainwashed by Lucy and the Creepy Big Switches to “MAKE THE BIG SWITCH”

Do I get an Easter Egg of the chocolate variety if I do? And none of this Virtual malarkey!


Thank Yous!

Just a very quick one guys to say thanks a million for all the encouraging comments! You have all made me feel very welcome in the big bad world of blogosphere! Now I need to impress you all! Special thanks and hugs to Darragh for setting me up and to Phil for answering silly questions for me!

In other breaking news a bird pooped on me today…luckily it was outside Penneys…wonder if that was the good luck used up?



Like a Virgin

Well I have finally crossed to the dark side….cheers Darragh Doyle…couldn’t have done this without you!

The path to this epic moment began back in October when I attended the Irish Web Awards dressed as mutton dressed as lamb! No one told me you Internet folk are tees and runners type folk! Needless to say I had a brilliant night and met some of you blogger peeps, apparently! Most memorable moment was watching Home and Away on some dudes IPhone in smoking area!

Look at me now…even converted me Ma to Twitter (@kala59!)

I am brain dead at the mo…so bare with me!

So a little about me,

I am a 25 year old Optometrist..use the google if you don’t know!

I grew up in Dingle, Co Kerry and been living in the big schmoke the last 7 years!

I don’t take life too seriously…glass is always half full…of beer!

My motto is “You are a long time dead!”

I suffer from juvenile Alzheimer’s which spices things up I think but ages the parents!

I am a Princess!

I am happy!

I am small but make up for it in volume…admittedly sometimes a bit too much!

I am a blogger!!!!!

And my favourite drunken tune is Kenny Rogers “The Gambler”!

Hope I have done this right!
