I was later arriving at my slimming world meeting, I started to apologise & someone chimed in with 'No point giving excuses, we've heard them all before'. They thought I was making excuses for not having lost any weight.
I bet you haven't heard this one I retorted.
'Sorry I'm late, I was making a tightrope & safety net for a unicorn'
Everybody laughed, I went on to explain that I had my very imaginative 7 year old granddaughter staying over.
