I decided last night... to go to Melbourne in mid-june to attend my niece's Police Graduation! I had thought it would not be possible as Stew is away... but he is going to take some time off work and come home and look after the kids so I can go! I AM WRAPT.

Finally, something to look forward to... and I hear the shopping over there ain't half bad either! OOOOO! *DROOLING*

Today: kids to school then hot foot it into town for my hair appointment.... that will kill the whole morning... then home to catch up on some blogs! I didn't read many yesterday as I was feeling so ill..... feeling quite a bit better today. later...
I have had a NICE day! Had the hair done, it looks just the same! And I love it....

I had lunch with my mate Chris D and her hubby, then I went and had me darn blood test (it was only 4 weeks overdue, come on people!)... then I went and booked me flights to Melbourne....

then I picked up Steve and brought him home so he could fix a couple of dings in the walls...

So all is good today, I'm feeling so much better today.... yipee.

End of Day: it's been a nice day, I havn't felt miserable at all today! and watching Steve do some gardening made me day too! I hates gardening! And I didn't want Stew coming home for just a day and a half and having to do bloody gardening! I cooked us all a lovely dinner of pork chops and veges.... delish.

NSV: I have had the day "off"... as I always do the day after weigh in.... it's kinda like a 'reward' for being good all week. works for me. nite nite.

    My in-laws had two deaf dalmations named Sydney and Melbourne. My father-in-law often worked in Australia and New Zealand during the late 80's and early 90's. My in-laws are now divorced. My father-in-law lives in Kuala Lumpur and now works all over Asia.

    We have sheep skins in storage from NZ and kangaroo skins from Australia. They spent a month in NZ right before our oldest was born and brought home these amazing booties from NZ that I still have. We also have two Mauri costumes.

    Oh my gosh. I sound like a total LAME-O!!! Hi Chis! I've got stuff from NZ!!! sigh...

    I am happy to hear that you are feeling better and are going to Melbourne. There's nothing like a break/ few days away from home when one feels a bit down.

    Take care
