SUMMER is going to be long... and bloody hot.

I was wearing 3/4 tights yesterday, kinda what I wear over summer.  And I was just too hot.

So... this is me for the next 4-5 months:

ABOVE:  Shorts and t-shirts.
I don't have lovely long, thin legs like Lacy, and I DON'T CARE.
I'm going to be all about being comfortable over summer.

I've seen dozens of girls/women out in public with chunky legs... and good on them.  I'm joining them.

I'm over worrying about how I look. If I never get back to a 'normal' weight.  So be it.
I'm going to be healthy, that's all that matters.
I have to learn to love myself... no matter what I weigh.  Why has it taken me this friggin long to realise that?

Moving on... I still have not made up the guest beds... so that's top of the list for today.
Then... more fluffing around the house I reckon.

4 WEEKS exactly till we are moving our furniture into our new home.  Yaaa hooo.


10.18 am:  And I've been working on getting some 'Business Cards' for my little market stalls etc.

Finally ordered some through VistaPrint.

This will be the front:

And on the back is just my name and phone number basically.

I also ordered two coffee mugs with that photo collage on them.

So... they should arrive around the 18th November, plenty of time before we move.

Brylee did a 'BIGGIE' today.  She handed in her notice at the Rest Home she works at.  She's moving with us, hoping to have found a new job in Hamilton by the end of the month.  If not... she will just have to keep looking.

So... another duck lined up.

ANON:  Really?   It's one thing to be nice and complement me on my legs, but to then kinda insult me about my age is not so nice.  I don't consider 61 THAT old, and 'limited time left'?
I think you should just go away and think about how that comment really sounds.

Well.. my nephew and his step-daughter and her friend arrived safely from Palmerston North mid afternoon.
The two girls have now gone up to Auckland for the evening, we expect them back very late tonight.

Silly girls.... they have to get on the road at 6.30 am to be at the Auckland Airport in time for their flight out later on tomorrow morning.
But, they are young and impulsive.

Deon is still here, so we get to visit with him all evening, which is neat.  We don't get to see him too often.

Sitting here yakking, enjoying out visitor.  Time to sign off and chill out for the rest of the evening.

    hey leave my legs out of it lol 😂 I can't help they way they are 🤣
    and stuff what people think it's almost 2020 just be yourself and comfortable
    #Lacy 💙

  2. Absolutely wear shorts! I don't know how you cope in 3/4 pants in our heat. Also perhaps try some other shorts on at various places - you might be surprised to find some that will look good. I always go for longer shorts that hide my giggly thighs and usually from now until about next May I live in shorts. I'm also counting weeks (well days now) until we are off to US. Nine days... !!

  3. Your legs look fabulous! You look amazing! I LOVE what you wrote today! Woo Hoo!

  4. Good for you and there is nothing wrong with your legs.

  5. Comfort all the way. And if we feel comfortable we look better.
    Good on Brylee. Always hard to resign (even if it's not the best place to work). I'm sure she'll find something soon.


  6. Im with you Chris...healthy and comfortable. Anyways your legs look pretty darn good !!!

  7. Yep, shorts all the way, I have a couple of pair that come just above my knee & I live in them over summer. Do not care what anyone thinks. Be comfortable!!!!! Mine were just from the Warehouse so not even expensive.

    You have great legs! I have been reading from the beginning and you have wasted so much time, effort and energy on loosing weight. No offense but you're getting really old. Time to focus on being happy and enjoy the limited time you have left.

      is this you ^^^ old Moo?

    2. No Lacy, I really don't think Grandma would say something like that!

      only asking as you would be about the only one who could get away with calling Ma Old, yea she may be 61 but she can still rock it and move like 40 year old lol 😂 I don't see or no many 61 year olds like her 😁

    4. Anonymous3:45 PM

      sorry Ma I had to ask, and mothers are ment to be well nice but hard, and with the short comment under it. . I thought It may of been, sorry
      P.s mum still gets mistaken for a 40 year old so there 😊

    5. Thanks Number 2, and thanks for the never ending support. You have been a real trial over the years, but no one can fault you for family loyalty. I know if I need you, you will be there and for that I am very thankful. ♥

      oh sh*t the bed Ma ya almost got my eyes leaking a bit oh stop it,
      yea iv been a hell of a little ass hole, but yea at the end of the day, family comes first, shit ill even help Russell if he needed it lol 😂
      It should go without saying, you guys need help, we come, end of story xx 💙

    7. Dear anon,

      You have such a great personality, except that your a cunt. Dont ya just love a nasty backhanded compliment.

      I'm interested to read your take on staying healthy, I dont think it's a waste of time trying to lead a healthy lifestyle, regardless of age.

      And just so we are clear, saying no offence before saying something doesnt make it any better. That's like me saying, hey anon no offence, but judging from your comment you seem to be an absolute loser who just likes to try and bring other people down. Unfortunately for you your attempt was in vain, as my mum wont be hurt by pathetic comments such as yours.

      And as for the comment about limited time, in what world do you live in where being 60 is a death sentence, I can assure you my mother has more life in her bones then you could ever dream to have. Although being that you dont have a backbone (hence the comment under anon) that's not overly surprising.

      Well I do hope you enjoy the rest of your day, and I can only hope your limited time left is more then your IQ score, otherwise your in for a short ride haha.

      💯👌 that's my Bro 😊


  9. Hi from the old MOO.

  10. Ummm, don't quite know what to make of that Anon comment. Anon seems to mean well - but HELLO???? Limited time left??? I mean you put on a pair of shorts! You didn't announce a terminal disease! Good Grief! You look great, your health is great, you are lively and active, and creative! Keep On Keepin On" You go - girl!

  11. Oh no, I"m 63 so clearly I'm screwed!! What a silly comment anon - even if you meant well it could have been worded a little better.

  12. Some people are simply nasty and need to bugger off! Your legs are perfectly lovely. Enjoy the summer.
