Thought I'd post a picture of the juicer that is so invaluable in our house for making lovely refreshing juices. My favourite juice is one made from carrots, beetroot, oranges, apples, and broccoli. It is gorgeous. You should try it!

Done a lot of walking today... Had to drop off my car for it's yearly service this morning after a night shift and walked back to Conwy from KJ Ford in Llandudno Junction. Went to bed then for a couple of hours and then have just got back from walking to the garage to collect it again. Will hopefully sleep well tonight!
The picture above shows the A55 from the road between Conwy and Llandudno Junction. You can just about make out where it goes under the sea into a tunnel.

Living TV which means that one of my favourite actors is to be seen on the screen again - Patrick Dempsey or better known as "McDreamy". This American series, which tells the stories of a group of surgical interns, really has me gripped with brilliant moving and emotional story lines. Have watched the recap and now can't wait to see the first episode of series 3.

recycling more over the last month or so we are only using one bin bag a week. It is amazing to think that everything else is being recycled. All our plastic now goes to Tesco, paper, tin, and glass is due to be collected by the council and anything that can be composted goes on the compost heap at the bottom of the garden. It's amazing really that so much of what we usually chuck out can be used again.

garden blog. I am really proud of my achievement which involved using a hammer, electric drill and electric screwdriver!
I haven't actually been to the new Wembley but with the football playing there last weekend I was reminded of my visits there in the past and thought I would post this photo of when I went with Tom and my brother and sister to see Madonna in Wembley Arena last year.

My favourite Joseph went this evening - Daniel. I am a little shocked but hope that my second choice of Ben does well now. Lee has got to go soon!
As usual Graham Norton and the rest of the team were on form - I wonder if Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has a fan club?

Post Office and therefore well used. I cannot understand how these closures can help communities? I know a lot more is done on-line now but people still need a place to collect and send things from.

This poster has advertised the Conwy Market for a number of years and it is a shame that this last Tuesday was the last planned market. Follow the link earlier to a news item about it. It will be a loss I feel for the local people of Conwy.

Seagulls are nesting in our garden at work. They have been very territorial and sweep down and squawk loudly at anything that comes near them! There appeared to be one egg in the nest which one gull, I assume to be the female, only briefly leaves to collect more nest material.

I have lost over a stone in weight since commencing the MP5 plan from WeightWatchers. My aim is to reach the top of my ideal Body Mass Index weight which is about 12 stone 9 pounds. I have a long way to go but my first target is to reach 13 stone 7 pounds which will mean I have lost 10 percent of my initial body weight which is really good. I am almost at that target and will treat myself to some new clothes then!

Popped to Tesco Bangor this morning. What a store! Tesco is one of my favourite shops. I could spend hours there browsing all the aisles particularly this store as it is so big. I love collecting the points too, especially the green club card points which you get for buying certain products and re-using plastic bags.
This store in Bangor used to be my local one before it was revamped into an "extra" a couple of years ago and I miss the variety of things that it offered. The store in Llandudno Junction is not as big and being vegetarian find it difficult to find some things that I like. That still doesn't stop me going there practically everyday!
