Tuesday, January 01, 2008


I borrowed these words from my friend Karen.... 2008 is an even number, nice and smooth with no rough edges, may the year be the same! 8 is also Stew's favourite number... his birthday is on January the 8th... he will be in Auckland this year for his birthday!

I have much to look forward to this year:

- move to Auckland, buy a new home!

- See Stew settle into his new job.

- Regain my fitness

- Lose 20 kilos

- Lose my uterus hopefully!

- Turn 50 without sinking into deep depression!

I'm sure there will be heaps more .... but that will evolve over time. I think this year will be exciting! I am determined to have a blast.....life is for living and by god, I am going to live it.

Wow, I've been 'quiet' today! I took Izzy for a walk this morning, it was already really hot at 9 am. I have done the washing and now I'm onto pruning the hydrangeas! And it's friggin hot here today! Ok, maybe not as hot as the Aussy girls get, but still hot for us.

See this mad as tart? Well I am talking to her right now... and she is pissed as a chook!!!! And it's 4am in the morning there!!!! More to come... fuck now she's singing to me. And now she's blaming me for her being pissed~!!!!!!

Now the silly tart has talked to Stew too, he thinks she's a nutter/pissed as a chook Australian too ! But she's really lovely!

Sadly after yakking with the delightful Amanda for an hour (!) I had to say 'bye bye' and start preparing our dinner..... it was really really lovely talking to you Amanda, thank you so much for thinking of me in your inebriated state!!! I do hope when you finally get to bed you can lie down without the room spinning after all the grog you have drunk ! LOL. HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR'S DAY.... when ya wake up!

End of Day: got lots done around the house and yard, Stew got the trailer fixed.... not shopping at all!

NSV: still on track!!!! Bloody hell that's great eh? nite nite.

  25. Yeah, you totally busted me re: Jan 2. It's just that I like to post my daily meals in advance so I know what the family will be eating and what should be on my grocery list.

    Grocery shopping with a two-year-old is v. stressful, so I like to get in and out FAST!
