Happy now deb?????
ahhh...back in the 'land of the living' again!!! Had a mega busy week or maybe I was just slow! Didn't seem to have time to get on here or collect all the bills from the PO box or anything! Husbands birthday today so we started with a leisurely morning and then a frantic lunch with grandchildren, children, mother- in -law and friend. I was ordering something and out of nowhere comes 2 year old Eboni barrelling towards me! What a delightful sight.
As to fitness this past week- well it's been zilch! And that's all I can say about that.

Had a really good day today. No work- I cancelled my clients as I have no voice. So- instead I went to the tip! I just love the tip! Very therapeutic chucking out all that junk. Then for something entirely different- I spent the whole day at home. Now that hasn't happened for many years. I got stuck into cleaning and tidying the book shelves in the family room. That includes photos too. I now feel very noble and extremely well organised!

Bastille Day today and in honour of it there were some French recipes being talked about on the radio this morning. How about this for starters- Thick pork sausage, boiled and then sliced up and served on lentils ( lentils sound good!) Then mashed potatoes the French way- lots and lots of butter and fairly sloppy. Sometimes even a 30/30/30 approach ( lol- not sure what happened to the other 10) 30% potato 30% cream 30% butter!! I'm thankful I'm not French!!!!!

This is especially for debstar!!- GREAT NEWS!!! No more early early mornings for me!! This week I was so wrecked after my early Wednesday. I had managed only 3 hrs sleep the night before and by the afternoon my eyes were hanging out. Had afternoon tea with my sister and two friends and I could feel my eyes glazing over- they wouldn't work together! lol. Can't imagine what they thought! I took myself off to a car park behind Maccas and had a 'nana nap' in the car for about 20 mins and felt heaps better. But... to get back to my original GREAT NEWS!!- the manager asked if I wanted to change that shift to a 9-2pm shift. Now how civilised does that sound?? So with a bit of juggling I'm now working a much better shift for me on another day.

Went to my favourite lady who tweaks my tendons and goodness knows what else- and my foot feels heaps better! I won't mention my foot again unless I absolutely HAVE to!!!

I think my foot is long last on the way to recovery. Had a 9km run/walk on Saturday. There are two hills on this track around a lake (3km) So I thought if I at least run the hills it will be hard and therefore helping my fitness more than just the occasional jog. I did that and then found the walking so boring I did a 40 pace walk/ 10 pace jog. That livened things up a bit. Felt almost normal! Later that day I did hurt a bit but this morning it's no worse than usual. I'm sure this means it's getting better!!! Hope so cos I'm sick and tired of cycling!!!

Went away for the weekend which was lovely. Nice to just remove myself from the usual hustle and bustle of life. Came back to city on Sunday for a bowling tournament ( very social) for my husbands work. Guess who won one of the games???? MOI!!!! That's right !! You are reading the blog of a bowling super star!! hahahaha. The last time I bowled ( about 6 months ago) I got the grand score of about 50 and had most of the bowls riding in the gutter. Not this time!! I might take this up as my 'sport' now!!
In all- it was a good afternoon. Lots of kids, food, drink and nice people.
