Griffin.... woke up at 5.20am, and THAT WAS IT! I could throttle him, he wanted a drink, then food, then his teddy's, and on and on and on.... Now we are starting the day ratty, gawd, I don't ever want to go back to infants and night feeds, early mornings etc!

T0DAY: Kids to school, gym, walk dog, housework, all the usual stuff...oh and I might pop over and see my WW Leader too, though technically she isn't my 'Leader' anymore cos I've left eh? But she is a good friend, so I need to sort things out with her, it is on my mind....

I went to the gym and did my 30 minute weight session with the trainer... such a nice guy! He's going to be weighing me every monday morning, starting next monday (after Easter, yikes!), so that I am accountable to someone else! I better pull finger this week eh?
Then.... I rode me trusty scooter (as yet un-named) over to my WW Leader's shop, and we had a lovely chat.... seems she HAS been very busy with end of financial year stuff too... she wasn't ignoring me (Honest!).... and all is good! Phew, that is a load off my mind. I think she will even try and join us for coffee on saturday's as well, so that is so good. I really value her friendship, she's a neat lady.

Now that I have my dining table back, I fluffed around with table settings (cos I could!), and came up with two similar, left or right one? I like the one on the left.... not that we are probably ever gunna sit down to a table like this, ha ha ha. But if we wanted to.....
Don't like the placemats... gunna go look for some White ones! Mad to have white placemats... but it will look soooo pretty!

Hmmmm, this is not a blog about how to dress ya table... more about what ya shouldn't eat off ya table.... I have been good! Eating only 3 meals a day, no snacking, felt FANTASTIC last night, cos I hadn't had any naughty food after dinner, and I had so much more energy at bedtime.....heeee heee he! I do believe eating too much at night makes you lethargic and sleepier... not doing that anymore.... promise!

Took Izzy for a long walk into town, it took 45 minutes, she was exhausted! Met up with Stew and we had lunch at a nice cafe on George Street, at table outside so Izzy could sit with us! Then Stew dropped us home again, Izzy would never have made it both ways, it was so hot. Then... I had a Nana Nap, was so tired! Mike picked up the kids from school, and now I'm trying to think what to do for dinner, I got out some chicken mince.... havn't used it before, so not sure what to do....might try rissoles! later..

NOW.. for all of you out there who have tried to chop up onions without getting stinging, crying eyes.... do I have the solution for you! Now, you may look like a bloody dork, but hey, your eyes don't hurt!!! I wear swimming goggles.... it works 100% ... no shit!

My only suggestion, don't forget to take them off if you have to answer the door! Done that, the guy looked at me as if I was mad! Hmmm, wonder why?

Ok, onward, must do some spuds next....

FUCK I'M A TWIT.... Today I have popped into my blog to update, and have seen NO COMMENTS for me... and I'm thinking.... boo hooo, no one likes me today..... then (JUST NOW) I realised I had the wrong e-mail address up on my screen (like my 2nd one).... DOH. I was so wrapt when I saw I actually had 10 waiting to be read... gunna do that right now... my mood has lifted I tell ya!

Well, the chicken rissoles were lovely.... mince, eggs, onions, carrot, pototoe, herbs, stock, breadcrumbs.... all combined and pan fried. Yummm yummm.
Sent Stew out for diet coke, have had 2 litres of friggin orange today already, was hanging out for something I actually like to drink.... so there! On that note, nite nite.


  1. I've thought about it - maybe your leader has taken it personally, e.g. that she has let you down by you not getting what you want out of the meetings. She may not but I'm sure if that is the case you will soon reassure her it is nothing personal, just you feeling stale with it all.

  2. i hope all goes well with your leader chris.

    wow 5.20am yuck i am very lucky my girls rarely wake before 7am thank goodness i just wouldn't cope.

  3. You are funny!! Isn't it great how a good day control wise can make us feel so much more confident in ourselves.

  4. Pleased you finally managed to catch up with your leader and sort everything out. Things like that can play mind games with you. Pleased to see that you've made yourself accountable for weekly weigh ins, especially to someone who can really kick arse. That's real dedication.

  5. LMAO!! And just after I blogged about my wonderful boy today, yours plays up!! Like I said "kids, dontcha love em??"

    As for dressing tables, sheesh I can never see mine for the paperwork that's continually on it!!

  6. I like the one on the left as well.

  7. loving that dining table chris can't wait to start decorating my new house. great news about your ww leader. take care

  8. hey, chicken mince, thats what I'm cooking tonight. I'm making chicken chow mein with it. (minced chicken, chow mein powder stuff, broccoli, celery, carrot, onion and garlic and some noodles through it. Its quite tasty but I won't be having any :-( Mine will be a small piece of snapper with a salad :-) yum.

  9. glad you've worked things out with your leader, ex leader....FRIEND!!!

  10. I don't care looking like a dork. But I care about stingy eyes. Ingenious suggestion.

  17. I'm pleased about your WWers leader and there was a genuine reason as to why she hadn't been in touch and all is well...fab
