good day today as I looked after my 3 grandchildren for the full day. Had lots of fun. They actually came on Wednesday afternoon and go home tomorrow to start school on Monday. It has been school holidays for the last 2 weeks. As soon as Brodie my oldest (7 years) grandson saw us, my parents and me he commented that he "has missed us all so much" so cute I thought. I also looked after them on Thursday afternoon for a few hours. They are my pride and joy.

    You are a wonderful Grandma to your GKs and I admire that so much. You have a really good and fun relationship with them. I'm also a Grandma to a almost 3 year old GS and he is the love of my life. Sounds like you all had a good time and they sure missed you.

    I did have fun, it is so nice to see them as we only get the pleasure 1 weekend in the fortnight but we have to be thankful for that.

It is taking me some time to get used of the new computer, it has a very small keyboard, it seems to be about 1/2 the size of my old one. Keep hitting the wrong keys LOL. But I have now got sound so I will be able to start using the exercise videos again LOL. Bigger screen even a flat screen. Just showing thaqt I was living in the past with my old computer. Still haven't worked out my emails yet. But thaqt scares me as I know I will have over 1000 emails so that will take some catching up.

Helath wise CKD still going great although I had to have another iron infusion last month in Adelaide so in the next couple of weeks I should be full of energy again emoticon

Still going to exercises 2 times a week, the instructor told me last week that I am improving with the exercises. Good to know. Plus with doing the videos I hope to see a bigger inprovement in me.

take care

Glad you're feeling alright. Keep up the good work!!

    I KNOW how you feel, m'dear! I just got notice this morning that my laptop has been shipped--it's on its way home! YAY! I'm going to get to play catch-up too... though I've been lucky enough to have occasional access to a friend's computer, and it hasn't been as long, so it won't be 6000+... LOL

Good luck, sweetie! LOL

    I have finally got my emails a total of 6900. This is just over 3 months of emails. Some of these I will just delete. But it is going to keep me busy. LOL.

Thanks for all your comments and thoughts. I will start catching up with my friends as I go.

    Yes getting used to a new computer is a bit of a pain. Being connected is super important, so it's worth it.

new computer

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Hi everyone, it has finally arrived. My new computer, it is a refurbished one. through the Government. People on low incomes can buy these computers. It has a warranty of 6 months so if I have any problems I hope they will be ironed out before this time. It has Windows 7 on it but the only problem so far is that I can't seem to run Outlook express on it. This is what I have always used.

    Hi Wendy, there is a better email program that is free to download Thunderbird and is easy to install and use. You just need someone to configure it with your Internet account. Otherwise hotmail ( prone to hacking) or Gmail more safe.
Glad you are connected again.
Off to work now.

    Windows 7 doesn't have Out look express unless you pay for it !! .

I am so glad you are back on line Wendy how are you ? .

Google Chrome has something like Out look Express that you can download for free!! . have fun!!
looking forward to you checking in again each day!!

Hi everyone, thanks for the the support from my last blog. It is very much appreciated.

Went to exercises yesterday afternoon and enjoyed it. We seem to do different things every time which does keep the interest up. Go back there Thursday morning.

Good news I have the money to buy another computer. Been looking around this morning but not much here. So it will probably take another week before I can get one. But at least I now know that I can get one. It has been along time without it.

It is going to be a hot day here but with a hot wind so not going to be nice.

Eating was pretty good yesterday and came in just under calorie range which I am pleased about. With 1 hour of exercises so a good day.

Blog again tomorrow

    Good for you, girl!

Feels right, doesn't it? LOL

I'm glad you are getting another computer--it's such a wonderful tool, and home access really is the best...*sigh*

Still waiting on mine to come back...

    Sounds like things are looking up..It will be nice when you get your new computer and have it at home so you can use it anytime. Great to hear about your exercises. Also your eating better. That's a step in the right direction. I am going to try walking more while the weather is nice. My dog and cats love it when I am outside with them. They walk with me. It is kind of fun. Going to try to walk a little more each day. Good luck. When Don gets out of the field he will be walking with us also.

Hi everyone, still cant believe that I have been a member for 1 year. So much has happened.
My computer is completely dead as I tried it again yesterday and won't even come on now.
So looks like I will be coming down to the library every day I can. The library is a bit to far to walk so I will have to drive.
I need to increase my exercises again to at least five days a week. I had dropped of a bit because of the pain in my foot. So we need to get a round that and start to organise different exercises.
I am going home after and work out a plan of attack so that I start to lose weight again and to lose the extra I have put on. LOL. I really do need to work out my life so I know where I am heading.
Thank you for the support and encouragement you have given me in the past. As you can see I still need it. LOL

    Hi Wendy!!..
Lovely to hear you are gearing up again ..
We will always be here for you my friend!
and you know yourself, you were feeling so much healthier when you were at the weight you were.. and eating well.
Perhaps you can park the car at your walking distance to the library and walk from there and back that will help your exercise program heaps .
Always thinking of you ... Hugs and Love Susie emoticon emoticon

    Dear Wendy, we all still need it and congrats about your sparkversary. It's not a bad thing to go to the library every day, but don't you have a neighbor with a computer ? it might save the trip.
Things are v busy around here with renovations in the deck area done by us and a full house at the Cattery. Still living the sugarless life and very happy about it. I could have never done all the physical work I'm doing before quitting sugar. As for loosing weight that's another story, pretty stuck but still trying. All summer clothes a bit tight.
Hope the foot gets better, don't rush if it'll only make it worse.

    You are not alone Wendy, we all need love and support. Our journey is a lifestyle that will be with us forever. That is how we must think about. I know exercise isn't easy. I am trying to do more walking. I did a lot at the Fair that Don and I went to 3 times last week. Did a lot of walking and enjoyed being their with our family. Because I have lost some weight I can tell the difference. A year ago I could not have walked as much as I did this year. Don is looking forward to next year when we will be walking even more because we both will have lost more weight. He is my best supporter and I couldn't do this without him and all you great people that write to me and share your journeys. I am here to help or listen what ever you need. Best wishes and hope your foot gets better. Thanks for caring. I appreciate it. I care about you too.
