With only 1 hours notice that I was accompanying Stew to a "business dinner", I did pretty well! I even found a babysitter cos all our teenagers were otherwise engaged... we have NEVER had to get a babysitter for the littlies before ! The lovely wee girl next door came over, Brylee and Griffin loved her and told us this morning that they want her to come live with us... how cute.

Now, the dinner.... turned out to be a HUGE affair, it was the 2007 Business Awards Presentation Dinner..... everyone was dressed to the "nines", long evening skirts/dresses and friggin suits... and I had on a cute wee SHORT dress ... and I laughed my head off! Once upon a time I would have curled up and died of embarassment,but not last night, I just had a ball ! I even had a man (very yummy) hit on me, he even kissed my hand....ok , ok he was pissed as a chook, but it was funny. The meal itself was superb and I partook of everything cos it was not greasy and awful, and I had very respectable portions I can assure you.

Ummm, alcohol.... I had bubbly wine, I had probably 5? glasses.... and I was pleasantly tiddly by the end of the evening... it was FUN... and I don't have a headache now! Tooo cool!
Now it's time to get my butt outta here and go to RPM class at the gym... feel like it too. later...

I went to the gym, fuck it's cold on me scooter!.. and I did the full weight session, followed by the RPM class, followed by another weight session..... I'm ON FIRE !!! I havn't felt this good in weeks!

I'm a bit cold now, cooled down and might just have a sauna... hee hee... I'm a lucky tart! Loving life, loving my attitude, loving all you girls out there who give me so much support...

AND.. I've found a name for me trusty wee scooter ... "Abie"... WHY? COS it gets me from "A" to "B" derrrrrr. If you can come up with a better one, bring it on.

Had the sauna... bliss... sent Mike and the kids off to the school for a play .... went and bought some plants for some empty pots in the back yard.... and then.... for the first time in months I had a horrible moment when my blood sugars dropped too low and I came over all hot, sweaty and faint feeling..... not enough food in the belly!

So, I'm now eating a bowl of my yummy vege soup, but it might not help cos it's got no carbs in it... I will wait 20 minutes and see how I feel, ain't feeling too bloody good right now that's for sure!

Poor Stew got home from work... and I immediately had him outside in the freezing cold potting plants! Done now though, and I'm happy with that!
He's upstairs now having a run on the treadmill before dinner... tonight we are having pizza, cos I'm a lazy tart! I shall try to have just a couple of pieces! I've had VERY low points today so won't feel too bad about that!

Nice dinner again! Freezing again... heading off to my bed, got the electric blanket on.... watching ER in bed... yee haa. nite nite.

    Good for you for having a great time last night, in spite of not being an identical clone of all the other women. That's confidence for you! I'd probably have felt like crap and hidden in a corner... :(

  6. Trust you to come up with a name liek that for your scooter!!!

  7. It's a great feeling when we feel on top of our game - isn't it.

    Glad you had a good time at the dinner, it's always good to cut loose once in a while.

  8. love abie hahahaha is it a motor one or a foot one?? i want a little motor foot one know the ones with an engine but its a foot one. i use to have a pink motor one it was the best thing in the world!!!

    OK so when i said i had my mojo i meant I was eating my gosh. is the energiser bunny your mojo????

  9. I know I'm a bit late off the mark but just checking to make sure Stew is ok, I heard a nasty rumour that some moral-less woman was going to do something evil to him. Hope he's ok. Gosh some woman are so darn brazen, poor guy, I don't imagine he would have stood a chance.

    I have asked folk before if I have offended them and I get feeble answers and excuses from them. (more indepth on my blog today) but like you say Chris, LIFE IS TOO SHORT!! So I aint gonna stress about it ANY LONGER!!

    No I'm not getting the violins out but to be honest as far as my family are concerned, I have always been the black sheep, the ole square peg that tried so very hard - but square pegs just do not fit into round holes eh? AND SO BLOODY WHAT!! As long as me kids are all ok and life is running right apart from the plonkers who I am just ignoring from now on then I'm happy.

    Have you noticed I barely ever mention my family in my blog?? Well I have nothing to say about them I barely see them.

    WOW! that was a bit much eh? Sorry hun.
