We got to Devonport yesterday and started to walk around.
And damn me if me knickers didn't slide off me butt AGAIN!
So, so annoying!
It's bad enough having to use a safety pin to keep ya leggings up... I pin them to me bra!

But... back to knickers.  I got so frustrated with them falling down I marched into the Ladies Restroom and took them off.

IF you are in Devonport and see some lilac knickers in the bin... they are mine... *laughing me head off*

Bex thinks I'm outrageous.  Like... what is wrong with not wearing knickers anyway?

Someone tell me I'm not the only one...PLEASE!

Today?  Sewing this morning I think.  Then after lunch I'm off to the Hospice Shop again.

Because I've already had a couple of shopping expeditions this week, I might try very hard NOT to buy anything today.   IT. CAN. BE. DONE.

 ABOVE:  a lovely catamaran on the harbour yesterday.  Love the colour...a very practical and safe colour, stands out like dogs balls.  All my Dad's boats were bright orange... you could see the boat from a long way away.  I cannot understand why anyone would paint a boat blue!

ABOVE: another cute photo of Griffin up a tree.

Right, going now... catch ya later.


Right.... let's have some 'interaction' with me blog today.   Who is brave enough to answer the question?

Pretty sure we will have to duck over to Mt Wellington today ... to pay a bill.  Oh Yaaa.  A Direct Debit has not gone out.  Glitches.

Yaaa, we don't have to go pay bill in person.  So we ducked down to the local mall to post some parcels... and I also bought some shoes to wear over winter that are a bit dressier than sneakers!

ABOVE: new Hush Puppies.  I bought some Hush Puppie short boots last year and have not been able to wear them as they did not stretch out over the top of me foot like the sales person said they would.   So, I mentioned that to the man at Hannahs and he said I must bring them in and he will stretch them for me at no cost.   SCORE.

It has annoyed me that I couldn't wear them, so  I will now have two new pairs of shoes for winter.   

Right, I need to get ready to go to Hospice again... 

I should have known better than to wear new shoes to 'work'... 4 hours on me feet and now?  OUCH... The soles of my feet are hurting like hell.  Idiot.  That's me.

But... my heel isn't hurting right now, which means having more of my impressive weight on the soles of me feet has helped that at least.

ABOVE:  I bought Brylee two dresses at the shop.  The one above it rather nice.  I also got about 3 tops for me to 'shrink' into.

COTTONREEL:  yep, it's called 'going Commando' here too.  I told Bex and Lacy I was going Commando in the Mall the other day (quite LOUDLY I might add)!  They both tried to act like they were not with me!
I can't think why?   lol

End of day:  I'd planned to do quite a few little jobs this evening, but because my feet were so sore I did NOTHING.
Dinner was pea and bacon hock soup... with fresh bread rolls.  Very nice.

    You are an inspiration. I too lost a lot of weight, 25kgs in 14 weeks, by changing my "lifestyle habits, I went from a size 18 to a size 10 in 16 weeks. I don't ever remember being a size 10, must have been when I was about 14 years old (I'm now 60 years old). Everyone thought I was sick and too thin, I thought with all the hard work I looked great,so I had a little bit of the food I use to eat and enjoyed and within 12 months had crept back up another 20kgs. So disappointed with myself. I know I can loose it again because I have before. I just have to get motivated AGAIN, I stumbled across your blog, and get inspired by your progress, "slow and steady wins the race". I'm not a blogger, don't know where to start, and don't want to, but I am starting my weight loss (in part thanks to you) and will check your blog for inspiration. As you said, we who want to loose weight arn't perfect, but never give a BIG THANK YOU, you are helping me and I guess a lot of other people with your humour, honesty and determination. Very best wishes from a fellow "lifestyle changer", Sandra. XOX Bless You. :)

  13. you do need to go shopping chick!! for new bloody knickers!!!!! LOL!!!!

      The whole idea of a skirt is to be bare underneath; to feel the air;

  23. Oh I didn't see this about wearing new shoes until after I posted on the newest post.

    That dress is so pretty!
