New dress

Here it is- tummy sucked in and all!! I'm sure I pulled it down so it wasn't quite as short as this when we went out!!!

Parties and new frocks!!

Just love this time of year- all those autumnal colours, the smokey woody smells in the hills and the general ambience of 'winding down' after summer. Much as I hate to see summer go- I think autumn is probably the most beautiful of seasons- and yes- this has NOTHING to do with the title of this blog!! Friday night we were invited to a 50th birthday party of a workmate of my husband. All the other girls were wearing dresses but that didn't really bother me- black pants work as well. HOWEVER- Thursday saw me at Chaddy and within 5 mins of being there I found just the little black number and 5 mins later it was a done deal! Phew! Now I own a black ( yes another black one!) frock that I need to be my current weight to wear. Quite fitting but with sort of ruching/ gathering along the seam so it covers the tummy and bum ( very useful when you are about to eat dinner). I really like it and hopefully will be able to wear it again sometime. I'll post a pic of it on here if hubby can be clever enough to download it from his camera to the computer. I don't often find dresses that I like- but I did like this one!!!

A new me!

Finally I feel much more like my old self!! This will be the last time I mention being sick!!! I didn't exercise at all last week and I really didn't miss it.
Long w/e here in Victorial this weekend- it seems to have snuck up on me somehow- I wasn't really expecting it. Got nothing really to say so I guess I won't witter on about nothing
have a great w/e everybody

This is taking toooooo long!!

I'm really tired of being not well!! I guess I'm feeling marginally better than I was on the weekend but now the coughing has started in earnest ( why always at night????) I've cancelled my whole week and longing for the morning I wake up and say 'Now how to amuse them today?'!!!

Bleurgh! I'm sick! My head hurts, my throat hurts, my ears hurt! I've got little voice! I hate being sick!!!!! The good news is: I've just booked us to go away in June - up north to our favourite place- that heals the hurt a bit!!

Home alone again!

Phew- our relatives have just left to return to their homeland. It was lovely to have them but also lovely to have the house to ourselves again.. The first thing we did- have dinner on our knees in front of the tv!!! How slovenly is that???
The next couple of weeks are also a bit hectic with another relative and wedding celebrations etc. After all that we're going away for a weekend!!
The challenge I'm doing is interesting. Can't say I've made any real changes to my diet yet but I am far more aware of what I'm eating and where the problems lie. Lunch doesn't happen! I need to address that. Exercise is great- loving it. Training for Run for Kids in April is on track ( literally!!) Ran 9kms the other day so probably just need to up it a bit and I should make the 14.7 without too much drama. The best part of running that 9kms was that I didn't hurt anywhere afterwards!- no foot, no glutes and no hip- yaaaaaaahhhhhhh
