ABOVE: The GHD's... I didn't get to use them yesterday as I was totally engrossed in doing the mosaic table.... they even came with a "How to Use" CD and product booklet. NICE.
So that's first on the "To Do" list after I get the kids to school today... do me hair!

My back is killing me from all the bending forward while doing the table, so am going to have a break from it today...if I can force myself to stay away from it that is!

We are expecting a crap weekend weather wise, so I can work on it to my heart's content then eh?


Feeling really down, got on the scales (friggin hate those things) and I have GAINED 1.5 kilos this week! WTF??? So now I feel like diving head first into the pantry/fridge and eating whatever I can find.

PISSED OFF.... I tried really hard this week ... did everything RIGHT for a change. Pfffffft. Trying hard NOT to eat cos I'm angry.

................................ GRUMPY............................

AND I havn't done my hair yet... I'm waiting for it to dry 'naturally'... it's only been 3 hours so far... still wet in the back.... waiting... waiting....

OH. MY. GOD!!! The hair straighteners are bloody amazing! Awesome, fast, do the job so well... why did I ever muck around with cheap ones before?

So, I tried taking a 'nicer' photo... this is number 6,758:

It is soooo hard to take your own bloody photo, and not end up loooking like a startled deer in a car's headlights! ... and try to smile too! Don't feel like smiling. Shit it's a bloody awful photo! Pfffft... who cares?

LYNDA: yes they are SO much better than any others I've tried! I got them from Shampoo and Things in Sylvia Park ($350) and worth ever cent.

On a happier note: I decided "Oh stuff it, I'm going to Weight Watchers"... and I did! AND... according to their scales (I LIKE THEIRS!) I only gained .200 grms. I'm so glad I went and didn't take my frustration out on the fridge! Tis a better day already....

End of day: lots of up's and down's... but it's been good overall! NSV: I faced the bloody scales and then went to Weight Watchers! AMAZING, but true! nite nite.


  1. The table is looking lovely. Hope the weather improves and you get a better weekend then expected. All the best.

  2. Love the table! Wish you were back here - I would love to do something like that, but a bit of direction would be good!

    Hope you get somewhere with the school with Griffin - does sound like they are now on to it! I wondered a while back about dyslexia.

    Have a neat weekend:-)

  5. OOOh a GHD!!!!! Now take fine sections and do it slowly so you don't need to go over the same section of hair more than twice!!!hehe...

    Glad you got my card, sorry it was late...blame Aust Post!!

    Can you sit down and do the table?

    Once again you have inspired me, but I'll have to wait a bit...

  6. Cool table. Hang in there Chris and stay out of the pantry!

    Seems that my kids pay more attention to the blogs I read than I thought because DD8 said to me just now, how come that lady never smiles in her pictures? LOL

    Your hair looks gorgeous straightened!

  16. If you feel like hitting the fridge go work on ya bloody table!!! Oh, and for the record...I think you are gorgeous!! Straight or curly hair:P

  17. Love the hair, those GHDs are the best. I have the cheaper rip off, the 'NHD', it is still brilliant, but maybe not as good as the original. When you say they, does it come with two?

    Gorgeous photo, your eyes look beautiful. They really 'pop' (stand out) as the yanks would say.

  18. Sorry to hear you had a bad day. Good for you going to weigh in. that 200g and more will be gone by next time. Have a nice weekend.

  19. i think thats a great picture..

    and i agree... i cannot take a bloody photo of myself to save my life...

  20. Wow is that like US$? Probably not. Jessica is on her 3rd straightener.

  21. I'm jealous of your tan. hrrmmmmph.
