3.  I am still doing well with Weight Watchers; I did a cheeky mid-week weigh to help bolster my resolve to eat ‘wisely and not too well’ during my time away and I’ve lost another pound (lb).  This takes me below a certain figure which I haven’t been below for a while, which makes me happy.

Now I must get back to work and finish packing before catching a train up to ‘the Bath’.
