ONE MORE NIGHT, ONLY ONE MORE NIGHT...

and.... then the kids are back at school and I will have some peace and quiet!

And some 'me' time.... I am hoping to get back to the pool for some serious swimming exercise, and maybe some social interaction with OTHER adults too! Now that would be nice.

Oh and I think I will look into joining some sort of art group too... maybe patchwork, maybe painting, who knows? But SOMETHING that I will enjoy, something that will get me meeting people and not stuck at home so much.

The fridge and pantry are not going to be my 'best friends' this year, no bloody way!

The other thing I want to do is volunteer at the local Hospice ... I did that in Palmy and now that we are all settled here in Auckland I feel ready to do it here too!
ONWARD....

IF I was a really cute baby, this would have been my face this morning:

COS..... I lost .... drum roll please........ 3.05 Kgs this week! That is about 6.6 pounds to you who still work in pounds! To say I am rather happy about that would be an understatement.

Whoops, didn't realise I hadn't updated all day! Sorry about that! Been rather busy... went to town to pay some bills.. home...lunch... neighbour visited for afternoon tea (early) then we were invited to my Aunt's for late afternoon tea... so I've been a busy girl!

Oh and I managed to vacum and wash all me floors and do the laundry too. Go Me!

End of Day: I'm totally knackered! (tired, exhausted)....I have just spent the last 2 hours re-arranging all the linen cupboards and the spare bedroom wardrobe. Now I have a completely empty cupboard ready for me to put all the toys in tomorrow. I am over having toys all over the bedroom floors! I am going to put my sore feet up now and spend a couple of hours relaxing! nite nite.

  7. What a fantastic loss.. No wonder you're thrilled.

    I work in pounds sometimes too. It's pyschological. The loss looks bigger in pounds and come down faster too.

  13. Woohoo Chris - 3 kgs is unreal. You certainly have been very focussed this week.

    I'm hoping for a decent one myself this week. Weigh in will is Thursday, so as long as Lee-anne and Jackie don't force feed hot chips or chocolate down my throat at lunch tomorrow, I should be ok.
