Home now and rather crabby- brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Friday, June 25, 2010


I think i might need to consider coming back home but ONLY cos if I don't I think I might have trouble sitting within a plane seat!!! I've been eating like it's going out of fashion here! I must have saved quite a few calories by sticking to my - no chocolate, no ice-cream, no chips, no biscuits and no lollies rules but on the other hand i didn't have in place a ' no eating 800gm fruitcake' policy nor did I have a ' no eating a savoury and sweet pizza in the same sitting' rule either! See what I mean- I need strict rules or I just go overboard!! lol

Just in case you were wondering- weather is still lovely, awesome, warm, constant etc etc etc up here.
An update on what we are doing- hubby has had a root canal filling after a few days of painful tooth, I have a throaty cold- which I rarely get nowadays, but despite all these complaints and ailments- we are having a great time!

Doesn't get much better than this!

Before I say anything......No! I haven't swum yet- but almost!!

I couldn't resist sharing this- from granddaughter no.1. It truly doesn't get much better than this does it?

I think I'm avoiding swimming!

Finally got on the scales and believe it or not - they said exactly what they said the previous time! ( about 3 weeks ago!) So- all good on that front.
Gym has been consistent but not all that startling. Swimming has been NIL NIX NOTHING etc etc etc! I really want to get back to it but I seem to be full of excuses. I could put it between gym and tafe but I rationalise it away by the thought that I'll feel messy or unprepared for the rest of the day.hmmph!- it's just an excuse. So- I'm making a pledge here- the next time I blog it will be to report I have finally dipped my dainty tootsies in the murky depths of the pool! I promise!

eat eat eat

When my middle sister and I were kids we had a building set called Bayko (very English) On one of my 'eating sprees' this week I had dinner with her. She brought out the Bayko and we had a wonderful time reminiscing and remembering

We also started our own magazine. It lasted through edition 1 ( Premier edition) and 2 ( and final!!) I think we're going to work on 'Edition 3' I'm dying to see how the serial by Mildred Spiggins (aka - me!) turns out. With a lapse of 45 years she should have had some thoughts about how it should finish!!
Anyway this has been a week of celebrating and eating! Now I'm too scared to get on the scales. I think I'll let myself dry out for a few days before I face that task!
Less than 2 weeks before we head north for 10 days- counting down and can hardly wait.
