This week started out well weight wise and I dropped to 75.5 mid week- so glad to see the back of 77 kgs at last.
Monday the builders came to measure up for the colourbond to replace the damage done by the "willie-willie" tornado in December. After months of waiting the "great" builders finally wrangled the job off the "*^" builders who wanted to charge $9000 on top of the insurers payment.
Tuesday- hubby who has been 'amazing' lately says "Well, why aren't you dressed to go out?" Then the phone rings and he has a job to go to--no complaints here, they are few and far between.
But he comes home about 11 am and repeats the question. :) We usually go out if poss on a Wednesday for coffee and cake--it's taken 31 years but he says he enjoys it and usually asks me to go. He has mellowed in 31 years.
We arrived at the place we frequent and got our Honey Cake and Flat Whites and retired outside to the sunny area. Then the owner comes up to us " I hear you are our best customers and would really like you to be in the film we are making about the place!!!"
So we have to move as we are 'directed' in our actions. As we pass the door Hubby calls out "Sounds like a set up to me!!" and laughter can be heard inside from the ladies of staff.
PS we didn't even ask what it was for or where it would be shown. It didn't seem to matter. It was so wonderful to be asked. Mr Right wanted to know what we got for doing it.
To me it was the most amazing, wonderful thing that has happened to us in a LONG time I was getting to the stage of expecting the next 'horrible' thing to happen to us.
On our way home we contemplated how it would not have happened if we went in the morning and how sometimes it works to not get your own way.
Wednesday the roofing iron was not ready so the builders came on Thursday, they arrived at 10 am and left at 9pm. Just as well an electrician has a LOT of outdoor lighting for them to see by at night. The 'boss' wanted to go to his church meeting in the morning and said " as long as we didn't mind he would keep going?". We are on a large block and so didn't mind most of the loud noises had ceased by 6 pm so it wasn't a problem to us.
He was a lovely man and had his son (8) with him and two other workers, the vehicle had air con and playstation and I provided some home made biccies and easter egg, he would come out of the vehicle some times and climb the ladder and yell "Dad!!" and his Dad would each time say with "love" "yes mate!!" it was adorable and so lovely as it didn't matter which part of the roof he was working on or how late it got or how hot the roof was in the heat or the iron cutting or placing wouldn't go right, he said it in the same loving tone each time.
So he finished up and came back on Friday after his meeting and tidied up and finished the last job, I felt sad we wouldn't see him again. It is good to know people who are kind and good.
Bec and Mr Right also showed up on Friday a nice day.
So today was weigh in day and I am the same as last week--76.2 kgs. Yay as I did have a whole hot cross bun and ate a bunny on Friday.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy the holidays if you get any.
