And I did kinda leave it to the last minute asking him what he wanted... so .. yesterday I went out and bought him an Apple Ipod Nano.... at his request. And he also requested it was all wrapped up in pretty paper... well..... I didn't have much paper in the house ! Do you think he will notice his gift is wrapped in BARBIE PAPER? *HA HA HA* He did ask for pretty paper!

Today: kids to school, walk the dog..... some things do not change! How boring. Then...... buggered if I know! I could go to the gym, but probably won't... I'm more likely to have a sauna at home after my walk then blob out for a while.

I usually feel quite knackered after my walk... can't wait till I'm 100% again.... this constant tiredness is the pitts. But .... the diet is going GREAT... TWO days under my belt of being on track and motivated to do this! YIPEEEEEEE! Now, should I get Mike a birthday cake??? Dare I have one in the house??? Can I resist?

I'm thinking...thinking...thinking... I might bake a cake! Hmmmmm

now I wonder where I put the cake tins? Havn't used them

in years.....

I have baked.. two chocolate cakes in loaf tins cos I simply could not find a cake tin anywhere! I am waiting for them to cool down before trying to ice em... then I will 'prove' I baked with a photo ... again!!! I am becoming a DOMESTIC GODDESS ... I'm sure!
Photos coming soon... in the meantime..

MIKE IS A FUCKING DORK... I thought only girls did things like this: he just backed my van out of the garage, but did not open the garage door first....well he says he did, but hmmmmm..... the big dent in the door suggests IT WAS FUCKEN CLOSED !&%#*!

Luckily there is no damage to my van... towbars have their uses eh? Yep, they make nice big dents in garage doors. *BIG SIGH*
He finally got his hair cut today too...



SEE ! SEE ! I did bake... I get no prizes for cake decoration I know, but it is a home baked chocolate cake~! I am proud of myself.
End of Day, been quite busy! Am happy.
NSV: I had some cake and don't feel guilty about it. So there. Going to walk further tomorrow. nite nite.


  1. We share wrapping techniques! No matter what I wrap it never comes out quite right. Breezed over your blog to catch-up. Still busy as ever I see. Hope they find some solution to help with the iron problem. Have a wonderful birthday celebration. The house looks lovely, keeping my fingers crosssed that the open house brings a buyer your way.

    Enjoy your Wednesday.

  2. How darling! Happy Birthday Mike! :) I'm jealous.. I want a nano too! :) But I guess my regular ipod will have to do..

  3. I love the wrap for Mikes present! Am sure he will love it.
    Haven't commented for a wee while but still reading... meant to say I love your house! It is fantastic and if we had the money I would buy it in a flash!
    Hope you find the cake tins... LOL
    Have a good day

    Happy Birthday Mike

    Love the wrapping paper

    Well done on your two good days. You are doing brilliantly well despite being tired you still go out for your daily walk, good on u. Glad the shakes taste alright, sometimes those things can be so nasty.

    Happy baking, hope it turns out better than my muffin attempt yesterday.

  9. Haha, the Barbie wrapping is too funny! A friend was over the other day and asked if I had any wrapping paper (he was on his way somewhere that he had to take a gift) and I had to confess that while I'm very girly, a Martha Stewart I am not... I had only a small scrap of Christmas-themed paper!

    Glad I'm not the only one!

  10. It's a great present and wouldn't matter what it was wrapped in!

    Did you end up baking a cake?

    Sorry to read that your iron levels are still no good. They do take a long time to come back up again though........

  11. Love the wrapping paper!!
    Hope your iron sorts itself out soon - that wont be helping you at all!
