9am today will see me getting my new programme at the gym and actually DOING IT!

Man I hope I still like being at the gym! And working out.
I have done bugger all 'proper' exercise in months and months...

After the gym I am coming home to do some sewing... I am quite excited about one of the class projects .. it's 'Convergence Quilts'... it involves merging blocks together in different ways... interesting to say the least.

I've not got much more to say right now... so I will bugger off!

It's an hour since I wrote the above.. and my day's plans have changed ... I am feeling sick as a dog.. upset tummy it would appear. I didn't really feel well during the night and now it's hit me... I feel like crap!

So, I am dropping the kids at school and coming home to bed!

Stew has gone out to the airport this morning to pick up our eldest son, Russell... who is here to visit his son Joshua. Stew is taking him to Hamilton straight from the airport. I didn't want to see him after he abused me over the phone recently. I don't need any more stress!

Struggling to fight off the nausea... if there is one thing I hate most in this world it's vomiting!

It's 2pm and I just woke up! I have not been lonely in my bed...

HIS nibs (above) was snuggled up on the end of the bed with me... loving every minute of it I reckon!

So, I'm feeling decidedly better... and thirsty! Hmmm, no prizes for guessing why. I'm going to have some Diet Coke, that should get me up and rearing to go again! LOL. Then I will go and pick up Griffin from school (Brylee is going to a friend's). Hopefully it's a quiet afternoon and I can finally get into some sewing!

Oh... Stew stopped in to check up on me on his way back from taking Russell to Hamilton too... nice hubby!

I am up, I am dressed... NO BLACK... but tomorrow I will have to wear me nightie cos there is nothing else in the closet that fits me and isn't black! This is bad people.. very bad. I never realised just how much black I wore till now.

Picked up Griffin and went and visited my Aunty around the corner.. anything to keep Griffin from packing a wobbly about not going to a friend's like Brylee!
Came home, forgot the house was alarmed and set it off... you should have seen Griffin run outta the house... it was hysterical! Worst part was he had the keys with the alarm button on it... so I had to run out after him to turn the darn thing off! ha ha ha! I ran... yes I DID!

End of Day: Well the tummy has rumbled into action again... I had dinner eh? Still not right.... hope tomorrow is better. nite nite.


  1. Hey good luck at the gym :). Love the quilt, I have been so inspired by all your quilting that I went out and bought a sewing machine and have started to make a table runner......scary its been years since I even looked at a machine hee hee dont think I will be starting anything like your beautiful quilts though.
    Hope your weeks going well :)

  2. good for you! dont give up on it!

  3. I hope you feel better soon - I wonder if the fact you feel ill is because you know Russell is ariving and it is just stress/nerves.

  4. Aw, I hope you feel well soon Chris!!

  5. I hope you're feeling better! It's never fun being sick or feeling like you'll be sick.

  6. I hope you're feeling better!
    I don't like vomiting either ...I may have set a world record cause I haven't vomited in 30 years!!!! I fight it off!
    Stay in bed and have Stew bring you tea and toast when he gets home!

  7. I'm proud of you. Don't stop now.

  8. eeek, so sorry you didn't get to work out - and here is to hoping your tummy calms down soon.

  9. Sorry to hear you don't feel well Chris!! Hope you come good soon.

  10. First of all, feel better!! Second, what are convergence quilts. Sounds interesting.

  11. bless your heart! yukkies! feel better quick.

  12. O Chris,
    I am So sorry you are sick. I sure hope you get better soon. I despise being sick worse than anything.

  13. or you could do a load of washing and chuck it in the dryer?

    I hope you feel better soon, love, nothing worse than feeling crap.

    good luck! xx

  14. I use to workout at the gym. Thanks to four little kids, I just don't have time to workout anymore. No wonder my clothes don't fit anymore.

  15. Ha ha ha! The very first time my daughter walked home alone I forgot she was coming and the alarm was set. Poor kid, when I got home the alarm was wailing and she was sitting out on the fence crying her eyes out. Poor lamb!

    Good on you for running! I'm puffed just thinking about it.... *whew!*

  16. Get well soon, think of you:)

  17. Glad you managed to catch Griffen and are feeling better. Good luck down the gym!

  18. Blergh..I hate the vomits too.. Hope you are feeling better soon...

  19. Oh you poor bugger. The squits and vomits are not fun. And how awful to miss out on gym AND sewing. NOT FAIR!

    Hope you feel better tomorrow.

    And I will post some pictures of my sewing. One day!

  20. So sorry that your tummy isn't feeling good today! I hope your nap helped a bunch.

  21. Not nice to feel sick. Hope you are feeling better by tomorrow. Take care and get well.
