- kids to school
- do some housework
- skip sewing class, not in the mood for chatty women

Am taking Steve to the Doctor this afternoon... he needs a sick note as he hasn't managed to get back to work... so has to go on a sickness benefit... not what he wants but he has to keep his head above water for now. He's talking about going to University next year... I hope he does do something constructive with his life. I couldn't bear the thought of having two kids on a bloody benefit all their lives, one is bad enough.

It is also WEIGH IN day... well tonight it is (5.30pm).... wonder if all the crap eating the past couple of days will make a difference? Hmmmmm.. we will have to wait and see eh? I hope I've lost something or it might just tip me over the edge into complete depression!!! Can't have that, got to spring back somehow.

OOOOO it's me Mum's birthday today too... she is 71 and doing well over in Australia with her man! Living in sin she is, ha ha ha! Lucky tart. I never imagined her taking up with another bloke after me Dad drowned... but miracles do happen and she deserves to be happy! Hope she has a lovely day.

Above: me Mum getting a birthday hug from a New Zealand fur seal in Coffs Harbour last year on her 70th Birthday! It was so funny!

I popped into town for some cash... gotta pay for the weigh in eh? anyway.... I havn't been able to find a Spongebob toy for love or money... then today I saw this:

A lovely polar fleece cuddly blanket... so grabbed two for the kids... me thinks they will love them! Mission "Spongebob" accomplished!

I've just had an 'interesting' experience.... had a nasty case of the 'shits' ... then had the mother of all hot flushes, hyperventilated, nearly fainted... and could hardly stand up! And all this 10 minutes before I'm due to pick up the kids from school! So I hops in me car (I can drive luckily) and go pick up Steve, who's now getting the kids for me! It was bloody awful .... me hands went all funny and stiff and claw-like, everything was tingling and I broke out in this massive sweat.... not nice! Hope that never happens again! I think I got dehydrated .... must drink more ... diet coke! LOL

Still going to Weight Watchers tonight....


End Of Day: a weird day... feeling a bit better now.

NSV: I had my first weight loss in a long time... so I'm happy. nite nite.

    I've witnessed several ladies over the years have episodes like that (well, not the shitting part). It's the whole change thing. However, I'm not sure about the tingling in the hands part. You might want to see your doc to make sure it's all the normal course of things. It sounds pretty awful.

    Take care of yourself!

  19. woohoooo! well done on the loss, bit scarey what happened to you tho'

  20. That's a damn good loss for your first week back.

    Hope you don't have anymore of those turns either mate.
