Started off a very rainy thursday however cleared up and became a lovely afternoon....
e put our fire on last night to try it out and hubby is like a kid with a new toy.....the fire actually kept him entertained last night...took place over the TV.....amazing....
Quite pleased with it however need to get some dry wood for it.....found a little dry wood around here and it makes such a difference being dry.....

Full day again today...started at 10am and got home around 5pm......
Have a fairly slow day omorrow with a lunch time appointment and then we head to the airport around 2.30pm to fly to Wellington for a wedding saturday to fly home Sunday....looking forward to the break.....

Hopefulyl will get a blog posted before leaving tomorrow and be back on spark on Sunday....

am still doing really well staying on track and all geared up for the 5%spring challenge.....
Woohoo....I am a Teddy Bear for the challenge.....yay

Today was an awesome day weatherwise....
now that we have our fire in and permitted we get the great

Spent quite a bit of today with my son again.....He did talk with his lady however things are quite rocky and I trust that she keeps to her word and does start to put in some effort......

I did go with the setting up the phone for him and truly trust that i don't live to regret the decision....
he is continuing with his studies and I think thats great...his money will be very tight however he is looking to get one of his mate in to flat with him which will help financially and also give us the full rent again on the place....
Not sure how it is all going to wok out however as long as they pay the rent and the inrternet I will be happy....not loloking to be footing any bills at all for the boy.....

He spent part of the day today at the dental school as he had a sore tooth and will find out tomorrow how much it will cost to get his teeth fixed...they are terrible and he hasn't lloked after then either.....

Will do tomorrow the work I didn't get done today all good....It is great having the flexibility to be able to change things.....

Am off to have an early night quite tired...didn't sleep well last night mulling over the best choice pertaining to internet and phone for the boy.....
Decision made now adn if he doesn't pay then I wll spend the money reuired for the disconnection......

    Hi Lynn - We had some good rain in Auckland. I love these Autumn days.

Will the new rules on Student loans affect your child? I don't know the ins and outs... just saw it on TV last night.

    Kids, can't live without them.

Glad your weather is good. We have sunshine, 53 degrees and lots of wind. March is traditionally windy here. It wears on people. When I worked out with the public, I could see how it affects people. Makes them cranky.

Hope you get lots of sleep. Women seem to fail in that area after menopause. Wish I could sleep more.

Have a great day,

Today was a brilliant day....
Kept to my plan...
Decided that seeing we are doing pre-challenges at present that I would have a go at a pre-challenge plan and try sticking to it.....
Succeeded today and am wrapped with myself.....

my bog had a few hickups today...took him to see his lady however he got home to find he had no phone and no internet....unfortunately they were in his ladies name and she has had the phone disconnected.....
He wants me to put it in my name to get it back on and he will pay for it as he doesn't have a very good credit rating.....
Next think to get disconnected will be the power.....not sure how this boy is going to pay with what he gets unless a job suddenly comes out of the woodwork and I don't like his chances at present as there are hundreds unemployed and more people loosing their jobs.....
Could be an interesting journey....
hubby and I have just made long term decisions and are going to be facing cutbacks so it is going to be an interesting time ahead I do think....

looking forward to this Spring 5% challenge and getting geared up to give it the total best shot....
Off to read 2 chapters of a book for staff meeting tomorrow then to bed...
Later peeps

    Your economy sounds like ours in the US. Lots of people unemployed and underemployed. Not good.

I'm getting a jump on the challenge also.

Our sil is on graveyard shift for 2 weeks. My oportunity for workouts dwindle with that. We live in our motorhome, so I workout in their house, while I entertain their dog (mostly keep him awake). Boo. I'll have to figure out what else to do. I was going to rearange the shed, but I think it's too small anyway. Something will work.
