1 sleep closer...

..until my mum comes!! Can you tell I am excited? It's just like Christmas, only better :) I just miss her so much and hate that we live so far apart. Especially since we are at that stage in our lives to enjoy real adult conversations together, kwim??? and I miss that.

Today was a normal crazy Saturday for us. Netball for Claudia at 8.45am, a game for Madison at 10.45am, then grocery shopping, home for a quick lunch and get Claudia ready for a birthday party. Dropped her off and Maddie and I ended up staying too so didn't get home until 6.30pm and then did some more washing and housework. Finally got the electric blanket and linen on mum's bed all ready for her arrival. Plus it rained on and off all day, and I hate running around in the rain. Love it when I get to stay home in the rain though.

Tomorrow I am hoping to get the lawns done if the rain has stopped, and vacuum out my filthy car. Then we are going over to some friends house for a barbecue dinner. Some adult conversation and company ... yay! lol I am really missing that at night while Gerard is away.

As far as WW's goes - had a crappy day! lol Had a good breakfast but then it was all downhill from there. I had better dust off the treadmill tomorrow morning me thinks. Can't say I'm expecting a great week like the last one. Oh well, slow and steady wins the race right. In my case it is VERY slow and steady.

Well better go and get the little ratbags, oh I mean darlings, off to bed. And then maybe I will play with some new inkpads and card I got from Stampin' Up! this week :)

Yep, back again already.

Okay, first let me say I am sooo pi$$ed off!!! I just posted a HUGE blog entry and lost it ... even the 'automatically saved' bit ... how does that happen? All I did was highlight it so I could change the font size and it disappeared.... grrrrrr It was such a great post too :(

So now I am not even going to try and remember it all and will come back on the weekend to do another entry.

Have a great weekend!

23 June 2007

Long time no see!

Wow, where is the time going? We are halfway through the year already. It seems like forever since I blogged, but I just never seem to get enough time on the computer these days.
Things here have been very hectic. Gerard returned from 3 weeks in Africa just over a month ago, and left again last Wednesday for another month over there. He won't be back until 23rd July so I am playing the single mother role again, and I can't say that I really like it much.

Have a terrible cold at the moment and just had a couple of days off work, but hope to be back on Monday as the work is piling up. If I am feeling a little better tomorrow I might pop in for a couple of hours (yes, on a Sunday .. I must be sick!) lol

Some exciting news ... my mum is coming over on 5th July! The girls will be on school holidays so I will have the time off while she's here. Unfortunately it is only 10 days but better than nothing. It has been a year since I last saw her so I am really looking forward to it.

I haven't done any scrapping for SO LONG, but have managed some cards here and there and hope to get some stuff done now that Gerard is away and I have a few lonely weekends ahead of me.


Well I am working at the meetings now which is good. I love interacting with all the members, and I finally seem to be getting back on track on my way to goal after struggling the last few months to stay motivated. I haven't piled a lot of weight back on thank goodness, but I haven't lost much either! I would love to lose another 5kgs before Gerard returns in July, but I would be happy with at least 3kgs.

I guess that's about it for my update. I will leave you with a couple of recent pics of the girls and I. The one of me with Maddie was taken by Claudia and Madison took the one of Claudia and I. One of these days I will get some good ones done!

Take care, until next time :)
