Week 129...

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Hi there,

It has been cold here this week, but I feel like I'm complaining after seeing your snow in winter. The last time I was living with snow was 30 years ago when my son was born. I went into hospital a couple of days before but Hubby drove to the hospital in our little VW down a mountain through a snow storm at night.

DS was born at 11:56pm on a Saturday night-Bastille Day. Hubby then drove home... brr...

This week the loss was 0.2 kgs. I've tried as much as I can research and read about, but it just trickles off and on. Oh well, it won't stop me continuing to try to get the scale moving.

DD has been acepted to two interstate hospitals to do her internship next year. She applied as a couple so Mr Right was accepted at each as well. They fly out next Wednesday to one lot of interviews, the second is on the phone I believe.

She has just realized she won't have us around and is pushing for us to move too. It is nice to have such a great relationship but it's times like this I think I should have been MEAN to her so it wouldn't hurt so much and then I'd be glad she was going!!!

We are complicated beings for sure...

Hope your week is wonderful and full af nice surprises and joy.

Kind Regards

Week 128...

Saturday, July 19, 2014


This week I had TOM visit and was eating more and exercising more to build muscle and burn fat. My weight went up 1.1 kgs but its not a problem I will just adjust this week.

I have put it on my tracker to stay accountable as King_Slayer taught me. Miss him lots.

Not much going on here, sunny mornings, still no car Hubby is having trouble milling the head. He is amazing as he is learning as he goes along! So I'm at home apart from fortnightly shopping and Wednesday coffee outings. I think women NEED to go out. :) !!!!

Here are some more photos from my Melbourne trip in 2012.

I'm a small town girl but I could live in Melbourne it is a wonderful city.

Have a wonderful week,
We'll catch up soon

I drove past the bakery today, although I really wanted a pink lemonade cupcake. It's a yellow cupcake with a piece of strawberry cake in between and it's topped with lemon flavored frosting and half a strawberry!!

A small loss this week things are going great.

I have decided to put up some photos today--enjoy

Phoenix DD's cat -this was his first 'bed' when he was a kitten.

one of the bridges in Melbourne 2012 trip with DD.

gardens at Miniature village down south.

still in the village

We ate lunch here.

The maze

Loved this house down there.

Melbourne again and to finish one at the Aquarium

Memories are great keep a photo journal of your days so you can look back.

Highlight of this week, my cousin from New Zealand rang me just to talk, we usually only contact each other by Christmas card. It was wonderful as she gets to visit Dad and see him. I miss him so much and was touched she would make the effort to call.
He turns 89 in August and she and her family will travel to his town to celebrate with him. It is one days journey there and back so a big thing to do.

Have a wonderful week

Mid week ...NSV's...

Thursday, July 10, 2014

On Wednesday Hubby and I went to see MIL in the home, she is doing great and we were happy for her to be looked after so well. She has dementia and in the past was always a worrier, so it was nice to see her enjoying every day with no care in the world.

It was cold so I wore my red jersey dress and Hubby who is not given to compliments said"Wow, you look great!"

On the way home we stopped in at the Mall where we used to shop when DS and DD were young, it had changed quite a bit. We went to KMart to get some PJ's for the guys and some bras for me.

Aside: I am the type of person who wears undergarments until they are falling apart and when I was a lot bigger and they were more expensive they usually got really delapidated!!! I had to add extensions to them to get them to go around as well towards the end it was 3.

Anyway with sales the bras were $9 ( I used to pay upwards of $26) so I picked a cute lacy one and a white polka dot one -outrageous for me the black bra lady!!

2011-2013 pic

This morning I put on the polka dot one and it fitted well, Hubby commented on how I used to need the extensions and how nice it looked.

It makes it all worth while when he notices these things and urges me on to "goal day" and beyond.

Thanks for sharing my NSV have a great day

    Ugh, I keep not wanting to go bra shopping. I know I need to get fitted first, and it's the part I'm dreading. I guess I just need to put on my big girl panties and get it done!
