FAMILY GET TOGETHER

ABOVE: The last pie I made.. mince and bacon... how cute is that?
ABOVE: My Mum and three of her sisters. She has 4 sisiters and 5 brothers and she is the eldest of them all. (and the shortest!)


ABOVE: a few more photos of dinner last night. Shame I didn't have a table that seated 17 eh?



ABOVE: a video of Teddy and Bella having fun last night. They were so entertaining!
Today: we are off to watch Mike and Joyce play Indoor Netball in their tournament. Stew has taken the day off so we will spend it together.
Oh, and I was EXCELLENT with my food last night! I had some chicken... and a tiny bit of apple/blackberry pie... it was very nice.
ONWARD....
It's a scorching day.... Stew and I went and watched Mike's netball... so far they have won their games... tomorrow they have 5 games! Hopefully we will watch a few of those too.
Mum, Ron and I did some shopping after lunch... mostly for me Mum... and now we are just relaxing at home.
I have a killer headache from lack of sleep I think.... just took some pills.
End of Day: today was the first time I had a kebab without the bread ... so it was salad and meat.. and it was delicious! I weighed myself today too... a good loss! nite nite.
