Not going to Weight Watchers this week... taking a 'no weigh' week.  Enough said.


I've got a cold.. first one in at least a year.
Feel yuk.

Had a lovely phone call from my girlfriends down in Palmy.... they were having 'our' usual saturday morning tea and they rang me so I could kinda 'be there' with them for a moment.  Is was nice.  But sad too,  cos I'm not there. 

We are now off to lunch at Sylvia Park to be followed by grocery shopping... yaaaa.

ABOVE:  I decided to give the dogs a trim around their feet... kinda got carried away I did.

Now, just for Martine.... who loves me dogs:

ABOVE:  I had a really good play around with my new camera.  Still not taking very good photos, but I can learn eh?

End of Day:  so-so day... I hate grocery shopping.   It has rained on/off all day too... and I have a shitload of towels now hanging outside that are dripping wet.  *sigh*
DIET:  not bad
nite nite
