Last night I said to Stew "I feel like something sweet"... so he said "OK, lets go to the supermarket"  ... so we did.

ABOVE:  ummmm... we got all this!  AND three tubs of ice cream... and chocolate sauce.   We DIDN'T eat it all last night though!

Now that I've had my 'sugar fix' I feel I can go without any for at least a week! 

It's the last full day with Joshua and Damien, they go home tomorrow.  They have been good boys... noisy... but that's normal eh? 

I feel I am hanging out for Monday... by the skin of my teeth!  I NEED to get my house tidy again!  Mess drives me crazy... shit I'm sure I've said that before!

Decided on a change with me DIET too.  I'm going to 'dish' up my 'normal' evening meal... and then chop it in half ... and only eat half.  I am POSITIVE I'm eating too much at dinner time.  POSITIVE.

I don't 'snack' during the day... so that's not the problem.  I don't have breakfast either.  But I've never been hungry at breakfast time.   So obviously I am OVEREATING at lunch and dinnertime.  I am going to concentrate on portion control.  (YES I know.. all those lollies... but we hardly ever do that I swear)

AND GET SOME EXERCISE.   I keep meaning to get back into a routine with the exercise.  But every time I start I get all hot and bothered... and I just HATE being hot ... 4 years of HOT FLUSHES/FLASHES all the time has taken all my tolerance of heat away.  I CAN'T STAND IT anymore.  But I just have to get over it eh?  OH and now that it's getting cooler it might be easier too.

OOOOH ... Wills and Kate get married today!  I am taking over the big TV tonight and my eyes will be glued to the screen!  I am dying to see her dress....


Taking the kids to the local pool today, most likely this morning.... want to get them nice and tired so they are QUIET this afternoon?  Well... I live in hope.

My condolences to anyone affected by the terrible tornadoes in the USA.  Mother nature can be an awesome force.

ANON:  thank you... and I hope you are having a much better day today?

Just back from the pool... the kids had a blast... Steve got in with them and was my 'look out boy'... it was so nice to not have to worry about them in the pool.
AND... I had expected the pool to be totally CROWDED... being the school holidays and all.. but its wasn't!  There was only a handful of kids there!  Which made it so much easier to keep track of our lot.

I'm going to download all the photos I took now... back soon...

ABOVE: a tiny selection from the 425 photos I took! The lighting was crap, and I didn't get very many really good photos at all.  Quite disappointed about that... but I'm sure I'll get the hang of my camera eventually.

Kids are now watching a kiddy movie "How to Tame Your Dragon" and eating lollies.  So they are QUIET!  hee hee.

I've spent the afternoon relaxing.... and doing washing.  Stew came home early from work tonight... which was nice.

End of Day:  and I'm settled in front of the telly... eagerly awaiting the 'Wedding of the Year".  Stew and Steve are watching sport on the TV in the Family Room.  Kids... in bed... yaaa.  Oh and I have a tipple in front of me too.  BLISS.
DIET: pfffffffft.
nite nite.


  1. lollies kids exercise and the DRESS well thats a mixed bag WE are watching Rugby Basketball and the WEDDING!!!

  2. Hello lovely..

    With the kids going back to school and it being cooler, get he big boy of yours to go walking with you ? or maybe get him to watch the kids after 3 for 30 mins and you go walking on your own ?

    I know the lollie thing is a rare occurance we have had a talk about that before.. it happens... move on.. :)

    Have a good day... and I am too looking forward to monday.. I miss my kids!

  3. I Sure can relate to that desire for sweets! Dag Nab it - that can b a challenge ! I did really good for a summer and got over that sweet defeat-but then I fell off the wagon and have had to pay the price . :

    How in the world have we got so far out of healthy eating with our modern diets - it seems EVERYTHING is bad for us. I do know that white sugar and white flour are our enemies.

  4. sorry. was having a bad day and took it out on you - not trying to make excuses. but wanted to say sorry.

  5. Sounds like the kids had a blast at the pools, especially since it wasn't too busy. Hopefully it tired them out but not so much they get cranky.

    Cudos to Anon for apologising.

    Enjoy the rest of your day.

  6. Mmmmm, sweeeeet treeeeeeats!

  7. ok - one thing i'm going to say. whenever i eat breakfast - i lose weight. it's the key. esp if you can have a high protein like egg/bacon even (lean of course) when i slip to old bad habits of no breakie, i gain, and gain, and gain! Jenny Craig was the best weight loss program i've ever done and it was so successful, pity i just can't keep away from the crapola! lol they taught me 5-6 meals per day, it was like you were constantly eating! which is probably why i loved it so much... but it as with anything became tiersome as i hadn't made it a true life change... speaking of life, i'm gving you my life story!

  8. Pretty soon it will be hot enough to swim here! I can't wait for bbq's and swimming :)

  9. I agree with you about the portion sizes. I don't snack either. I just eat too much of the yummy dinner. :D

  10. Looks like the kids are having a wonderful visit. Good luck making it through till Monday. Have a fun weekend.

  11. That top pic looks like my kind of lunch!
