NO EXCUSES! Send me a 50th Birthday Card! You have 4 weeks!!!

There, now off ya go and get! (PLEASE) ! *SMILES*

- kids to school
- sell more stuff on Trademe, yaaaa.
- Make bright 'flag' for trailer so we can transport the swing set back safely... the long pole is going to stick out the back a lot so need a warning flag. I bought some bright material yesterday, just need to sew it now.

Not sure what else I will do today, but maybe I will start planning my 'Diet Comeback'.... need to start getting me butt smaller again!
I'm thinking of going back to Weight Watchers next Thursday in Manurewa, it's the closest to here... 7pm meeting I reckon. ANITA, if you are reading this... hope to see you there! And come up and say "HI"!

Now that I have got the house sorted out and am not likely to be exhausted at the end of every day, I'm going to start walking again... and getting on the exercycle at least once a day. STARTING TODAY! ... woo hooo, feel quite excited about it all.

So, I did it... I went for a walk after dropping the kids off at school, and it felt great. I only walked about 3.3 kms, but a lot of it was hilly. Lots of hills in this suburb. This is GOOD. And I'm sure I well get better, faster, and go further too. It will take a bit of time, but it will happen! LOL

Once I got home I sewed the flag for the back of the trailer for tomorrow:

I put buttonholes along the top so we can tie it on easily.

OH and my now redundant vacum cleaner just sold on Trademe for $315 OVER it's reserve price!!! I'm wrapt!

HOW TO USE YOUR STUD FINDER ACCURATELY: get a piece of plywood, nail a length of 4X2 into it and practise! IT WORKED.

ABOVE: this is the picture that I wanted hung in the lounge, it weighs a ton... it used to be a coffee table, but I took off the legs and now it's a wall hanging.. solid copper top... and gorgeous... just look at the detail:

Maps of the 'olde world' and naked nymphs! LOVE IT!

And's safely on the wall.... nailed into a STUD even!
