Sane at last!

Sorry about my infrequent blogging, I say that as if anyone reads this lol. But I had to come of my lighterlife eating program as I was literally losing my mind, so back at weight watchers, n although I went a tad mad this week I will get stuck in next week n sort my eating out.

In other news Ellie has her new bed in her new room n have freedom after 8 at night again it's awesome :) so will hopefully get alot more out my day now.

I am at work compiling a list of things I would still like to squeeze out of 2012, before it's over. :D

Emotional wreck...

Ok so I didn't see this coming, my emotions have taken over me. I feels things I didn't used to, I'm more sensitive, I've been crying for heavens sake!!! I may have to stop this diet to reclaim my sanity. :(

Turned a corner?!

Well it's day 4 and I'm feeling pretty good, managed my shift at work, to meet my friends n out to the pub.

It's been a total love hate, rollacoaster week with this diet, I'm hoping it'll be plain sailing from here on. :)

Day three and I'm feeling awful :(

So day 3 of the plan and I'm hating it, I feel soo I'll, dull headaches, feeling sick, light headed, really lethargic, and grumpy. I'm wishing I had just stuck to my weight watchers plan, when I could eat nice food. :( but no I would cheat, or not count. This actually feels like punishment for being a bad dieter in the past.

I go to work tomorrow just a short shift, I'm hoping I feel okay, but right now I feel awful :(

Wish me luck

I smell toast!!

Woke up to the smell of toast and a child that smells of coco pops. Time for my breakfast which was a very nice banana milkshake, another winner :)

Yesterday I got my first experience of the side effects, headaches n nausea were the culprits, so two paracetamol and early to bed for me. Awoke feeling fine, so I'm hoping they will be short lived. Although as I'm writing this, I'm not feeling too grand. It does say the first few days are difficult and then once your body adjusts you feel better. Glad I'm not at work til Sunday, although there still plenty to do here.

First meal down.

Ok well I had my first meal replacement meal. Raspberry Porridge. I was hopeful, but it was a struggle to eat, it had a really strong chemical/metallic taste. And an after taste. So not my favourite, I hope things can only get better :)

I missed yesterday. So I will blog twice today, albeit one after the other. The reason I missed yesterday is because I was working 9 til 9. Not leaving much time for any sort of life. Thankfully it's my last long shift for the foreseeable future. I imagine most of my blogs will be somewhat boring, but trying to get in the habit of writing more :)

Be careful what you wish for...

Howdy, here’s a wee update


Nice to be back, it’s been a busy few weeks. My little girl turned Two, I can’t believe how fast time goes, seem like just yesterday she was born and now she’s walking and talking and learning every day. Ellie amazes me every day! To celebrate her birthday we went up to my Nannie’s and had a quiet family party it was perfect and she had a ball! Although I was not with her on her actual birthday as I was working she was at her Daddy’s and had a great day there too! She’s such a lucky girl to have such a big loving family! 

In other news we are pleased to welcome my baby niece Maeve into the world, she was born on Sunday the 15th of April. Our family just gets bigger n bigger I can’t wait to meet her, but as they live down south I shall have to wait a wee while!! My wee nephew Rory is loving his wee sister and I can’t wait to see what Ellie makes of her. Although Ellie is now stranger to baby’s she has a 5month little half sister and a 3 week old little cousin on her dad’s side.


I recently got in touch with one of my best friends who had been awful quiet for about 3 months. It’s so good to be hanging out again. Wild nights and setting the world to right!!  Met a few new peeps, so getting to know them, its all fun times, not too much drama... woop!


Currently getting organised to go to Berwick Holiday Park with my friend and her son next weekend. I’m looking forward to spending the whole 4 days with Ellie, going swimming, dancing and playing! Some quality mummy and daughter time with lots of giggle n pictures!!! My car is still broken, borrowing my mum’s at the moment, but on the Brightside its going into the garage on Monday !! Its nearly the end of the month so will get all my bills settled and hand in my notice for my flat and that will be a big stress off me...woop!  Then on to the next chapter, life after the flat heehee!
Well that my wee update, I will try to be more consistent, but I’m a very spontaneous person :/
Take care,

Ciao xoxo

Look at me I'm blogging...


I'm Ashley, and I'm new to blogger. I thought I'd give blogging another try. I had a blog when i was in my teens, full of angst, which was sadly deleted and lost from the viral world forever...

But I'm back, older and some what wiser, at least i like to think so :)!!

So a little bit about me and my new blog. As i said my name is Ashley but you can call me Ash if you so please, i live in Scotland and i am 25 years young! I have a daughter who is almost two, her name is Ellie. I am single and rather happy about it :)! We live in a town centre flat and I work part-time in the care sector. I have a big n close family and a rather large circle of friends. Life is good, if only i could learn how not to sweat the little my broken car, and overly expensive flat!! 

As for my little blog spot on the interweb, it'll mainly be an account of my days, something to record my life, my memory is awful at the best of times. I shall try to be honest, consistent and witty with my here's hoping my life is about to take an interesting turn :D!!!

Thanks for reading,

Ciao xoxo
