I'm rather hoping today is a much better day than yesterday.
After thinking we had all afternoon to do what WE wanted to do yesterday, it didn't happen.

So, today.
We shall do the grocery shopping.
And I shall do some sewing.
And washing.
And so on.

Just a 'normal' sort of Sunday.

I spent last night sorting out my drawers.
I'm still sorting out what fits me NOW, what will fit me in 6 months, and what to give away cos it's never gunna fit me again.

Something tells me I'm going to end up with nothing to wear soon!  Most of my winter clothes are the ones I'm shrinking out of!

And there is no way I want to be buying 'in-between' clothes, that would just be a waste of money.
So, maybe I just wear a few clothes that are a bit big then.
That's OK I suppose.  It will look better than me squeezing myself into clothes too small !

Sorry, no photos for today... yet.  


People who got their tits in a knot yesterday, besides us.  Pull your head in.  WE were the ones MOST AFFECTED and put out by the bloody fiasco.
YOU didn't have two kids and a baby sitting around a bloody mall for hours waiting.
And as I said yesterday, THAT will not happen again.
We will no longer be having anything to do with it.
Go through the courts, get is sorted and stop playing games with each other.  Nasty games.  The only person you are hurting is Keera... and you are pissing US off big time.

On a happier note:  I keep trying on clothes that have not fitted me in years... and now... some of them are getting close to being worn again!
Yes, I'm a sad git, but unless you have been HUGE and are finally getting back your self esteem, your enjoyment in have no idea!  

I just showed Stew how a dress I am wearing is now much LONGER on me (cos of the weight loss)... and Griffin overheard and he said:
"Mum are you getting shorter then?"

Yeah... only a kid would say that.  Brylee said something similar the other day too.  *smiles*

I'm happy today.  Believe it or not.

CRANKY: your question has been answered "elsewhere".

Well... that's the grocery shopping done for another fortnight.  Such a mission.  Dislike it intensely. 

Steve is cooking tonight, so at least Stew and I can relax for a while.  It's so nice having the big 'kids' cook!

End of Day:  well the kids made a really lovely dinner... pork dumplings and veges in a sweet 'n' sour sauce.  It was delicious!
I think they are making us a dessert too... only they won't tell me what it is.  But I can see them peeling Granny Smith apples!
Today has been less stressful than yesterday, thank goodness.
nite nite.


  1. Chris you are a great sewer! Take the clothes that are too big and simply take them in, or up or whatever it takes to make them wearable. There is not one item in my wardrobe (except new clothes) that have not been adjusted in some way.

    I hope you are able to have a good 'down' day and do something for yourself!

    Oh the problems of having clothes that are getting too big! LOL ♥♥♥

  3. I know the feeling about running out of clothes! That is where Trade Me and second hand clothing shops come in handy! I am using those (refusing to pay to much for clothes that won't be fitting for long) and getting some good bargins.
    Hope you guys have a good day!

  4. This is true about sorting I think perhaps layering for winter? you may come across some sheap clothes at hospice? Have a good do whatever day today.

  5. I know that feeling of ridiculous joy when you wear something you've been looking at sitting in the wardrobe for years! Good on you chick!

  6. hey, you have to reward yourself so go to the second hand shops and find good quality pre loved clothes to wear "in between". It's a treat and it's cheap and it's practical :-)


Thank You so much if you take the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it very much.
