NCT time! ... WEIGH IN 2

Next week is NCT week is Chateau Doll... arrrgghhhhhhhh... I love cars... My first car was a VW beetle... 1971 called Jose.. yes I name my cars... any your point is?! My grandfather drove them all his life and not surprisingly all of us grandkids love em!

Tangent... Mr. Q congrats on your new set of wheels! 



When I rocked home with this little beauty my mother has a complete fit! You could see through the floor... there was a little rip in the roof and just about made it into 4th gear... it took me 3 hours to go 100 miles home at the weekends but I adored it... I polished it.. washed it... air freshened it (to be fair though the gap in the roof kept it fairly 'fresh!') but I took such great care of it... it's still at home and my dad regularly heads off for the Sunday papers in it!

Sadly it failed an NCT test and is waiting for my lottery win to repair him but when I retire Jose and I will be speeding off, OK 'speeding' might be pushing it but the sunset is ours! 


I still drive a VW bug.. albeit a new shaped one with doors that work and electric windows! I'm so first world its not funny!


Please let me introduce you to Bertie Bug .. named after Bertie Ahern... hang on... because I got Bertie the beetle, the day the other Bertie left office... it seemed apt! Bertie is currently in the garage getting the 'works' in prep for next weeks exam!!! 


I love my car... I take really good care of it... I respect it... I only put the best I can afford into it... it's serviced regularly... washed, polished and hoovered ... it's got my personal 'touches' ... silly shaped air fresheners... big pink flower on the dash... and on the occasional day during the year when I can take the roof down, I do and turn my 80s music up nice and loud! If only I treated my body so well eh? 

This week... give yourself an NCT test... 

Head to toe... spring is here... sort out your wardrobe... chuck the stuff you'd never admit to buying... charity shop the ones that don't/will never fit... be brutal...

Book that appointment for a new hair do... and do what you really want... go shorter... blonder... pink if you like! 

What about a manicure/pedicure/massage when pay day comes around? Spend a night at home pampering YOU this week... chuck some bubbles in the bath... light some candles and cover yourself in some gorgeous body lotion...  


Clearly everyone knows how much I love my car... they got me an edible one!


Treat your body well this week... and fuel it with the best food you can... try a day of non processed food... have a 'fruit and veg' day... cut out fizzy drinks for the week, and drink the full quota of water you need... ... you're body will thank you and you'll feel so much better!  You're skin will be clear... sleep better... all those additives and sugars just wreck your system... you wouldn't put diesel in a petrol car (and they should change the nozzles anyways... silly petrol stations!) so why put foods into your body that are going to be bad for it... the taste is momentary... the effect lasts longer on you! 

It's crazy how much time and effort we put into our cars and homes but have no time for ourselves... It's your body and you only get one... so treat the best way you can... 



Just off to the bottle bank ... ahem.... 



Chart below... if I missed you please let me know... if I promised to add you and I forgot ... just shout... AMAZING losses! MI stayed the same, my butt is well and truly kicked this week seeing your losses!
