Our eldest Daughter Amanda is getting remarried in January 2009... and ... I am going to be the FLOWER GIRL ! I jokingly told her I wanted to be the Flower Girl... and now I AM!!!

I am leaning towards this sort of dress:

Do ya think it will suit me???? NO? Oh well, it was just a thought. I just hope I don't end up looking like this:

With fatter legs of course! Ahhh what fun that was! I am really looking forward to it!


- kids to school

- Go to Patchwork class.

That's it for now! later...

Picture this: I'm not long back from patchwork class, I am naked as a jay bird in me sauna and the phone rings. It's the Real Estate Man: "Can I bring a couple through right now?" FUCK! "Gimme half an hour" I say... on go the clothes, race downstairs, put away the washing, the dishes get thrown in the dishwasher, the vacum comes out and ..... all done in half an hour!

NOW.... we wait and see. This was the woman's 3rd visit to the house, her husband's first... she loves it, he's not so sure. May know something by Friday. Cross EVERTHING.

I have been asked how Steve is... he is so-so, still not back at work, not moved in here...he is resisiting that idea. I am not really sure what he is doing .... but one thing is for sure, if I sell this house, I AM OUTTA HERE! If he chooses to come with us that would be great, if he chooses to stay here, it is his life. There is only so much I can do.

Just to make my day NOT... daughter No# 2 has decided to come down for a visit today, bringing some guy with her... I can't wait..... GAWD. I have no idea what has prompted this visit... last time we saw her was August last year...FUCK she better not be pregnant! I am already raising her two kids! Think of me.....

So Lacy and her cohort arrived safely, and I promptly left to go to my first Weight Watcher's meeting again this year! As expected, I have put on another *5* bloody kilos... so off we go again. I can do it, I am determined to be a GORGEOUS Flower Girl! ha ha ha.

End of Day: well it's been a busy and interesting one... to say the least. NSV: I fully expected to have put on 10 kilos, so was kinda happy with only 5! nite nite.

    I think that your choice of outfit for your flowergirl role is gorgeous.

    The one waiting in the store.

  9. ohhh good luck with the house fingers crossed here for you :)

  10. YAY! Hope it works out. I've been hanging on to the Stanleys thinking you were physically packing house right now.

    Don't brides pick out horrid outfits for the bridesmaids and stuff out in New Zealand? Or have you guys evolved into a more civilized society than ours??

  11. The frog look is hot. You should go as a frog. It would be different.

  12. i love the tutu but i think it would look much better in hot pink hehe.

    Fingers crossed for a sale hun,in fact everything crossed!

    Ohh and good luck with your daughter too.

  13. YAY about being a flower girl.

    Everything crossed for the 3rd time viewers.

    Good luck with Lacy's visit.

  14. Your family stories are better than an episode of Days of our Lives - LOL!!

    Fingers crossed that those people are the ones that are going to buy your house.

    I love the tutu outfit. You would look so cute in that. I wonder what your daughter will think of it!!!!

  15. Chris - the flower girl! Funny!

    Not so funny, though the thought of a pregnant daughter!!

    Kids... oy. My runaway's boyfriend is coming into town this weekend. I know he's bought her a ring... the thought of that spineless twerp being my son-in-law makes me itch. It'll be interesting to see if she remembers to call me on Mother's Day. Probably not.

  17. I'm thinking of you - surely daughter would not plonk another child on you guys? I'm hoping the visit is a pleasant one...

  18. crossing parts for you ... hope the house sells and i vote for the frog look :D
    hugs and grins!

  19. OH MA GOD!

    I so get the weight battle. I've lost and gained and lost and gained. I am currently back up to the "bloody" top. Hmmmm... before too long I just might be talking like you... well, how I imagine you talk.

  25. Geez the fun never stops at your place! Good luck on all fronts. Bravo for the big return to WW. Yes you can do it! Can't wait to see what happens tomorrow.
