Am Back

Friday, June 11, 2010

Am back on spark after not having a phone connection last night...grrrr.... emoticon...
Was so not a happy camper when i got home at dinner time to find we had NO landline....and of course they couldn't do anything until today.....had finally made a decision to get broadband yesterday and got it all sorted thinking ..YAY...am not going tohave to spend hours ontheinternet anymore....and couldn't even connect ......was gutted as I am back to the start withthe great run I had with being on here every day.....
Nevermind.....hopefully it will be all sorted by the time I get back home at the end of next week....am hoping though that maybe we can get someof it soirted over the weekend and get a new email address sorted and have everything changed by the time I leave.....

Othere than that Hiccup.....I have had a great week....
The exams I was supervising have now finished....really enjoyed doing themand also was great connecting with the students....just have to try and remember their names now forthe September exams that a lot of them willbe sitting.....

Am really looking forward to my week away....have got a few pre-booked appointments however am hoping to have some chill tim....get caught up on some reading and also I will have broadband where I will be staying so can get to Spark each day....

Trust you have all had a good week and, like me, have had some motivation from the scales this week.....
Catch you all tomorrow....
Blessings....

Terrific Day today

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

My day started on a super note this morning even though I was up early......my weighin this mornig showed me I had lost 1.1 kg's for the week.... emoticon...that really made my day......
Showed me what can be achieved with a little application to what one already knows.....
A real motivation factor....

Thankfully the weather was a little higher in temperature today than yesterday although not alot......the sun was however shining but not alot of warmth in it.....apparently the temp was -4 0C at 7.45 am and there was a bit of frost around however was not like that when I went out and hour later.....
Was nice to see the sun instead of the grey sky and rain....

Can have a chillmorning for abit tomorrow as I am not supervising an exam till 2pm...will go into work around 11am though and catch up with some staff and make sure their worlds are all ok.....

Trust everyone has found the scales this week as encouraging as I have.....a real boost for me as I am away from home all next week so will have to rely on sticking with the choices.....one good thing is that I am out eating most nights so will be able to make good choices instead of having a meal put in front of me.....the nights that happens I am going to suggest that i can do dinner for the people I am staying with....a good plan I think....

Catch you all tomorrow....
Blessings....

BRRRR....Cold Day

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

Today is a very cold day....between -1 & 3 deg oC all day.....brrrr.....

All good though.....even the cold is not toppling my motivation and focus.....YAY.....

Have been fairly busy today with an exam at 9.30 am then went to the residential hall that I am responsible for to have lunch and catch up with how they are doing coming up to the exams.....

Have an exam each day this week so that will keep me out of trouble over and above what i normally do in a week....all good....just hope it isn't so cold tomorrow....

Need to goa nd get tea as I have someone to meet tonight who needs my help.....

Catch you all later....
Blessings....

    Hi...I'm from the US but I spent 6 weeks in New Zealand one summer/winter when I was on break from my hall director job. I loved everything about New Zealand....even the earthquakes. In Christchurch I was able to meet with hall directors at the university there. I worked as a hall director for 5 years....loved that job!

    WHAT?! Freezing???? Where do you live?? New Zealand??? In my former life, I was a hall director (res. hall). It was one of my most favorite jobs!

Just checked your Sparkpage and see that you do live in New Zealand....happy winter New Zealand!!!!

Back Home

Monday, June 07, 2010

Our break away was awesome even though yesterday was very cold and wet and today was even worse......rained the whole way home and is still raining....the paddocks were flooding as we passed them and I would say that the road would have been flooded by the time we got home.....

The rest was great however it is never long enough for me at present......could have stayed a lot longer.....
Nice to be home though....and obviously we were meant to be abck now as we had a leak in our second lounge so Hubby will have to get up on the roof when the rain stops....fortunately he thinks he knows what is causing it.....YAY.....

Back into things tomorrow....am doing exam supervising all week which will be awesome.....

Am so proud of myself over this time away....stayed focus....made really good choices and am feeling really good that I am making good progress this week.....

Am off now to post some messages......

trust everyone has had a great weeknd....
Blessings....

    Is a lounge, what we would call a living room or family room, or is it a second floor to your house? Glad you had a nice time! Sorry about the leak though. Have a great week supervising exams. So happy for you staying so focused, you should be proud! I'm proud of you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
