I feel like this is the first week that will be 'normal' in bloody ages.

For quite a while there has been 'something' going on... either getting ready for Mum's party, the party week, the two weeks afterwards, when my Mum was not well... and then our holiday.

So... today is a new week of normality.  I'm sure I'll be bored shitless!  lol

Nah, I'm going to enjoy it.  Especially the quiet.  OH GOSH... peace and quiet!
I forgot for just a moment how much noise there is in the house with kids at home... and TV's going non stop!

Keera has 'her' programmes on all day!
Stew has friggin sport on all day!
And I do in the weekends too!

During the day when everyone is out at school and work, I never have the TV on.  It's QUIET.

Noise is a form of torture, I'm sure.

And that's what I'm looking forward to the most today.
That, and just getting the house ship shape again.  
I'm weird like that, I like nothing more than having a clean and tidy house! I simply can't relax unless it's tidy!
Ask Stew... he will agree 100%.  *smiles*

So, that's me for now... nothing really riveting to yabber on about...


Housework ... mostly done.  There's a few jobs that I could be doing... like WINDOWS... but I'm actually frozen to the bone!  Don't know why, but I can't seem to get warm since my shower.
Maybe having wet hair and bloody cold feet isn't helping?
Sitting wrapped up in my electric throw right now... Coco is enjoying me being a lazy tart!  
She's curled up on my lap of course.

So... I'm off to Weight Watchers soon.  Not looking forward to that... I checked the scales on Friday and they showed a massive gain.
So, I have been trying to do some damage control over the weekend.... let's see if it has helped?

SHEESH... I'm constantly surprising myself!  I lost 1.1 kgs this week!  Didn't expect that... but when I think about it... I wasn't THAT bad on holiday.  

So... winding down for the evening now... I'm still freakin' cold!  Remember me bitching about being too hot over summer?

Now I am gunna bitch about being cold.  Can't win. *lol*


  1. You have had a hectic few weeks. Enjoy your quiet time. I agree with you about the tidy house. We've just bought and are frantically trying to get our current place ready to sell - it's chaos and reminds me of what you went through when you moved from Auckland.

    1. OOOOwww an exciting time though! Good luck selling, I hope it doesn't drag out for you like it did for us.

  2. I'm like you in that I can't relax until the place is clean and tidy! I also never have TV on (or radio) most of the time... I love peace and quiet especially after having grandsons staying!

    I see that only Coco is listed on your sidebar. What happened to your other dog?

    1. Cathy, I'm not ready to talk about Tallulah right now. One day I will, but not yet.

  4. How were the pillows?

    1. Haven't asked Stew how his was, mine was OK... will take a bit of getting used to of course. But, shouldn't take long. I like a really thick memory foam pillow, Stew likes a thin, almost flat thing!

  5. Well done on the weight loss mum well done. ANY loss is a loss and a loss like that after your week away is bloody good.

  6. Well done on your WW result πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜€
