When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Lost, goodbye & oh well!

So my readers you will have noticed I've not posted the last couple of days. It was never my plan to post every single day because well, even I of chatterbox nature, will find it hard to post something worth reading everyday!

But this Monday I'm here to share my Saturday with you. Keagan and I went to watch our boys, Bristol Rovers, play at home. As it was Keagan's last match for a while what with him going off to pursue his racing career, we met up with friends in the supporters bar. Everyone wished him well and offered up useful advice.

I arranged a couple of surprises for Keagan. I arranged for a good luck message to be read out over the tanoy and also had a small piece put into the programme!!

 As you can see it was rather a grey day to start and well, it ended very grey as we lost 1 - 4!
 Here's me and my boy before the game.
 Here's the piece I had put in the programme! 

My Q & A journal asks -

How do you feel about your body?

Rather personal! Well as I see it, I am me. That's it. I'm neither tall, thin or tanned. Quite the opposite, but I do not care. I'm not bothered. I wear what I'm comfy in and what is easiet for me to get dressed and undressed. Though I do like to dress up now and again. Here's a pic of me at my brother's wedding. This is my parents, my brother and me. I wore a vintage dress and I felt fabulous!

This is actually me at my most heaviest. I'm a good half a stone lighter now. But on that day I felt amazing! 

Take care Zo xx

Sounds like you had a great grey day :-) What a lovely Mum you are to do that for Keagan - I bet he was really chuffed :-) Have a great week.

Good luck to Keagan as he starts a new chapter in his life. Shame about the result on Saturday, but I'm sure he appreciated the little surprises you arranged for him. xx

Great post Zoe! Thank you for sharing your day and how you feel about yourself as well. It's nice to know that there are others out there that feel good is their skin. Hugs, Rasz

I am not good at commenting on non crafty posts, but I do read them and thought I would just say hi today.

Sounds like you had a blast. Keagan is growing up fast.
You look fab in that dress.
Sorry to have missed you all Saturday, but I was not safe to drive that far. Gutted as I was so looking forward to it. I had even packed everything ready too.
