Giving my bingo wings a workout

Hello. I went to bed a bit earlier last night. Normally it's about 11pm, but I was a bit tired so I was under the duvet at 9.45pm. I soon dropped off, but the trouble was, I woke up at 3am. Now that is a bit early to get up, so I forced myself to lie there a bit longer. Thankfully I went back to sleep for an hour. I think I'll go a bit later tonight, as long as I get 6 - 7 hours a night, that's about right for me. 
Not a lot to report on tonight, it was just a normal day. I did some more sewing on the new picture, it's looking good. I fancied doing some machine stitching on it, so I did a practice piece first, in case it didn't look right. It did, so I whizzed over a section of it. I have a title for it, but I am keeping that to myself and will reveal it at a later date. 
Three meals today. Usual breakfast, bran flakes, nuts and dried fruit topper, banana, and yogurt. I am back on the soya milk as I have finished the 20p rice milk. 
Lunch, the last of the mushrooms needed using up, spinach, one scrambled egg, on a slice of seeded bread.

Dinner tonight, a mild veggie curry stew with carrots, parsnips, peas, celery, and pasta. It was so nice I had two helpings. I made a big pan so there's plenty left for tomorrow.

It was a lovely day so I did a bit in the garden. This hedge needs trimming, it's too tall. I always put a plastic sheet underneath to catch the clippings, I can't stand sweeping the bits up after letting it all fall on the ground. 
I did the walk earlier today, and stopped to chat to a lady who also walks for exercise. We had a right good natter. I am often seeing people walking and running, there are a lot of health conscious people in this village. One rather portly middle age gentleman with his baggy shorts on was huffing and puffing and sweating profusely. He was doing a much shorter  run around the block. Maybe it is best if he doesn't stray too far from home I thought, in case he begins to feel poorly. Just after I saw him, twice, a couple of young ones came streaking by in their tight fitting brightly coloured lycra. Wonder if I should get some of that kit, mind you, I don't want people to see my skinny wobbly bottom. Can it be skinny and wobbly at the same time? Mine is, I've got bingo wings on my arse. What the chuffin heck are bingo wings anyway, I don't play bingo, ha ha.

I've got to be on time for the Crafty Club in the morning. I've got to pick up the milk from the shop and  let everybody, in because our leader can't make it and I've got the spare keys.

Thanks to the walkers for sending in your mileages, more have arrived today. Our page is looking quite good a lot of activity is being recorded. I'm proud of you all for making such a fantastic effort.

Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip.


  1. oh my gosh I'm still laughing, bingo wings on your arse, lol,,,I have heard of bat arms,,flappy loose under arm skin but bingo arms is a much better one, lol,,,

  2. You're lucky with your ar#e I've got a wobbly jelly one. Ha ha

  3. I was laughing out loud at the "bingo wings on your arse ". Ilona , you are a tonic ! I think you and Hull got the best weather today. Bit changeable here in Derby and rain forecast.

  4. I'm going to guess that the lycra will tighten up bingo wings on your arse and any other loosie goosie areas and make everything all gootentight. heh...just another reason why I love reading your blog. You are my motivation. Ranee (USA) MN

  5. I found your blog a couple of days ago and have enjoyed reading all about your life in England. I love your sense of humour.

    I can't figure out why you call yourself "Mean Queen"??? You seem like a kind person. Maybe there is a story there?

    1. It's a British term for being stingy, tight with your money, etc. I think Ilona is joking a bit, as she doesn't seem at all stingy, just well-focused on what is important to her. I find it quite a good word to mean both things, tight-fisted and just a bit mean, in the other sense. By the way, Taylor Swift has a great song that asks "Why you gotta be so mean?" I think Ilona would like it. Kate in Oregon

  6. Glad you had a good day, looking forward to seeing the picture and what you have called it. Good idea to use a sheet.

    Day in today for me apart from X stitch club tonight,not sure yet how I am going to fill the day apart from a couple of birthday cards I need to make.
    Enjoy your day llona.

  7. I'm dreading my chest turning a bit bingo wing-y, my arms are too puny to wobble much!! All your meals look great (hides chocolate quickly!)

  8. You just made me laugh when I read about your bingo wings. Paragon of virtue that I am, I have decided that will walk to work each day... 50 minutes walking in the drizzle didn't dampen my enthusiasm and I am looking forward to doing it all again every day. Roll on the lovely sunny days though

  9. I had to Google that term as I have never heard it. We say bat wings. You have such a whopping good sense of humor.

  10. So funny! Bingo wings on your Arse, I love it! I think I am cultivating those 😀😀

  11. oh you have made me laugh - I wear lycra to cycle in but fill it out rather too well heehee!

  12. Bingo wings on your arse, hilarious! Surprising too - I'd have thought with all your walking and healthy veggie eating you'd be super toned and not flabby at all.
