Yehaw!! I sound like a Cowgirl.
My last post here was Thursday… I was sure I did one Friday.. Oh yes I did.. this is a day behind so it says the 23rd July… but it was actually my 24th!
Since then I have done NO ART! and very little house work. MY Bloke came home Friday night and said “Stop Cleaning!”
Friday afternoon Amber and Sweetpea came home and so the house looked “lived in” again.
On Saturday, Amber had free football tickets so she took Sweetpea and Star Son and her cousins and went to the football they left at about 11.00am so The Bloke and I had an almost “kid free” day, we had Squishy and so we took him to visit The Bloke’s Mum Tanny. Squishy is really getting the hang of this walking thing he did his best toddling along in the “retirement home” and all the oldies loved him, there was a chorus of “Oooh’s and Awww’s” as we toddled past! Funny he’s walking faster now that some of the
inmates err residents! He fell asleep in the car on the way home so we dropped him off at his house his Dad was home from work by then.
The rest of the afternoon and evening was “child free” so we did a leisurely shop and booked ourselves a table at “The Station Bistro” its run by the parents of one of the Boys in Star Son’s football team so we try to give them support whenever we can… plus they make the best Parmas! We talked about going to the movies, so I googled whats on at THREE different cinemas and NONE of them had anything we would want to see… the only thing I would vaguely watch was “Jurassic Park” part 7 trillion and 34… but it was only screening through the day.. so we opted for a DVD, yes people we are THAT boring, we get a “kid free” afternoon and evening and we stay home do grocery shopping and watch a DVD.. I’m yawning as I type! He chose “The Hobbit” and I let him because A) he never watched TV or DVD and B) there was even CRAP in the new releases! C) I am always “trying” to be a wife of integrity so I let him chose. I played on my ipad!
Sunday of course is “Football day” and I tried very hard to pretend I like “Winter” and took this photo.. it fooled people on Facebook!
Needless to say it was so cold.. then I read a FB update from my Bestie who’s son plays in a different region and they were being SNOWED on!! Stuff that I HATE WINTER… today the radio DJ guy tells me “Cheer up Peeps we are 2/3’s through winter“.. light at the end of a very long dark tunnel.. We lost the game which was almost certainly expected, there is one tea each year and we can NOT beat them no matter what.. we played them and now we will be playing them again probably twice in the finals…*sigh* it’s kinda like that old saying “Always the bridesmaid never the bride” on the upside, he’s been playing football for this team for four years and three of those have been in the Grand Final, one of which they won! That’s more than A LOT of grown men footballers can say! The thing that makes me get all warm and fuzzy with the fat that I HATE WINTER and I spend a lot of time huddled in the cold, stinging rain, or frosty cold ice-covered mornings.. is that HE loves it and HE’s good at this sport.. so I shut up and stomp my feet a little harder to encourage the blood to keep circulating!!
After Football it was a mad dash home to get changed, warm up and grab some food before running out the door to Jasmin’s for her first Tupperware party.. as much as I hate to and she most certainly would hate it- I have to admit she’s a “mini me” in the fact that any excuse for a “Party” and “WE” are there! It was fun and Amber booked a Party.. see I told ya “Any excuse…” and that helps Jasmin’s sales too..now I have to find some friends to invite.
Last Night I got some of my pile of pen friend mail done.. so that’s coming down in size thank Goodness.. I am terrible lately at letting it pile up… I’ve run out of International stamps so tomorrow Squishy and I are going to the PO.
Today is Monday and I am starting DETOX.. i know I know I keep threatening it.. but I got on the scales this morning and they yelled “Ouch, get OFF!” I am officially 78 kilos (171.961 pounds) my “GOAL Weight” is 67 Kilos.. (147.71) So I have some work to do!! Today I begin Green Smoothies and detoxing from Coffee, sugar, Dairy, Carbs. Detox is for three weeks and then I will think about re-introducing Soy Linseed bread back.
I am hoping to lose at least 3 kilos before we go on our trip.. so I can get into the photos without being too ashamed!
So I will be posting the Smoothies recipes and any Daniel Plan recipes that I use!!
Ok, house work is calling me, Sweetpea and Amber are off at Tweddle until Friday, I have a “Child free” day so I will clean the house and then get started on some art.
I almost forgot to tell you about that… I am doing a challenge with Brian Miller he’s started a FB group.. we are doing “50 paintings before 50″ if you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know I love me a good challenge.. so the Bloke worked it out, I need to do AT least one painting a week to get 50 before I turn 50 in October 2017… what a blubber mouth I am today.. I’ve told you my weight and MY AGE!! in one post!! two things a woman supposedly never reveals… but then again no one has ever accused me of being a woman!!
See you next time….
