Work has been so busy, but we were lucky this week I guess....we had a machinery break-down and had 2 half days off while they did repairs. Now we are playing catch up trying to get the orders made up and working twice as hard...and longer days.
During the week I went up the hill to bring troublesome son (Shawn) down. Since he had his accident we have had his vechile down here getting it repaired, new windscreen in, new tyres and just making it roadworthy again. Within minutes of him and his little family getting in the car...he started. Heck knows what I said to set him off, it doesn't take much at all believe me.....but boy he turned from normal to physcotic raving idiot in seconds....abusing me for no reason. I just didn't argue or try to placate him.....just pulled over and literally threw him out the car!! Speaking to Hannah (his partner) as I turned the car around and took them back home apparently he has been like this for a few weeks now...doesn't need any drugs or drink to set him off anymore, could be just something he hears on the radio or tv. Soooooo sad. What kind of parent does that make me, everytime I had spoken to him, he has been great, I didn't notice any difference in him, actually thought he was doing great, he always sounded so happy on the phone ...I must have been burying my head in the sand !! Anyways I dropped Hannah off and headed for home.....he stopped me as I went to drive past him as he trudged up the highway....he apologised profusely and asked me very politely to take him to my house to get his 4x4. Not one more word of abuse was uttered...he was normal again. He really wanted that vechile back and I think had realised if I drove past I wouldn't have returned.
He called in on Saturday too...and spent 3 or 4 hours here....and said he was trying to get his "moods" under control. He needs to do more than that, he needs help big time....and only him and HIM alone can do that, but he won't listen, you can not give him any advise, he doesn't WANT to listen, doesn't think his problem is as big as we tell him it is.... BUT he really does need to do something soon, he informed me and hubby that he and Hannah are to be parents again....their 3rd child. Heck, he can hardly look after himself.....I really despair, I really do, what is going to become of him !!!
On Saturday night we had our work chrissy party.....the boss took all the fulltime workers out to dinner at a real classy resturaunt....all food and drinks paid for....
mmmmmm I blew it and spoilt a super-dooper on track week and drank wayyyy too much red wine.....
Had last weigh in for the year tonight and it told on the scales......would you believe for the 4th week running I stayed the same!!!!!!
Bring on the New Year, methinks I gonna havta pull me socks up and get rid of this holiday excess....carried it around way too long now!!!
Merry Christmas to one and all just in case I don't post before then.....take care, be safe.

Had an alright week, food was good except one day when I did my usual thing...emotionally ate, this time when I found out my son Simon's partner had a car accident with all 4 kids in it. Their 4x4 is a mess, but luckily Tracey had all the kids strapped in properly so other than a bruise on Zoe's cheek....all were okay. Thankfully their vechile is a 4x4 as they were told if it had been a car it would have been a write off. But I have to move my butt more....excersise has been down to what it usually is. I had had 2 of Simon's kids, my grandaughters Jessica and Zoe sleep over for the weekend..so no walks then . I know when I don't keep the excersise up....I don't lose. Weighed in tonight...and stayed the same.....but ohhhhh well I will keep at it, still going to weigh in at the ww meetings every week till I get back to goal, however long it takes....

I had an absolute "shit" of a night, went to bed about 9ish, read awhile, then went to sleep but woke up at 1.30am........
I got up, after tossing and turning and no sign of sleep and made a cuppa, and thought mmmmm might have a bikkie too. Two cuppa's later and a pack of bikkies later I thought darn it better go back to bed and get away from those darn bikkies!! Back at the bedroom hubby is still sound asleep....so crawled in and curled up but again tossed and turned and wriggled and squirmed, in the end sighed and gave up!! No sleep for me!! Got back up....make another cuppa and thought mmmmmm need to do something soooooooooooo 4.30 am there were HOT SCONES sitting on my kitchen bench....minus 2 which I ate.....!!!
5.30am I went walking....
7.05am drove off for a days work at the "funny farm" !!

Monday....went to work, squashed finger in rollers on carrot grading table, ended up having surgery to make sure there was no tendon damage. Darn sore !!
Tuesday....ouchies finger!! Went to weigh in coz I couldn't weigh in Monday night.....mmmmm wasn't a good weigh in! Heard from Shawn that he had started another job with a furniture removalist.....hope he can stay focused, motivated and off the dreaded "weed" and keep the job.
Wednesday......stayed at home and mooched around waiting for Kylee. She flew in for interview.....waiting to pick her up from train station tonight. Sat up and chatted, poor girl has a huge decision to make about future..if the posistion is offered.
Thursday....Busy, busy , busy !! Heard the tragic news of Katrina. devasting !! Just hoping the tumours aren't going to be passed onto little Allie (Katrina's little girl) as Katrina's mum also passed away with the same thing at 42 when Katrina was 8.
Lots of shopping, catching up with friends of Kylee's.
Saw the Dr today...had thyroid and HRT medications reviewed. Dr gave me a telling off telling me, he said I was getting too skinny!! Sheeeeeeez that got to me!! Too skinny, yeaaaaa when I had put on weight!!! But anyways I did measure myself ..... and lo and behold I have lost centimetres around bust and waist!! Then it was onto shopping and catching up with friends.
Friday...Went to the surgeon, finger is healing well. Then onto Katrina's funeral with Kylee. A very simple and moving service for a well loved mother, daughter, stepdaughter, sister and friend. Shawn was unable to go due to just starting a new job. The news was a shock to him but he coped with the news a lot better than I though he would. Took Kylee out to her best friends place...they getting togerther with some other friends for a girl nights in....mmmmmm sounds like a headache to me!!
Saturday......Up and about early. Had hair done, got rid of all the grey by having it cut and coloured. Home and had Shawn and Hannah and girls around to catch up Kylee. Kylee last saw them when Jaydene was born 8 months ago...she was Hannah's birthing partner.
Sunday.....Another full on day. Took Kylee up to Collie to say hullo and goodbye to Simon and Tracey, they flew in Saturday night from their holiday in Queensland. Took a drive around the overflowing Wellington dam...then home to pack bags, have lunch and catch our breathes before heading off to the airport, and goodbye Kylee. But just for a few weeks...then Jen fly's to Melbourne.
Monday.....phewwwwwwwww day of rest for me. Slept in, went for walk, had a late breakfast. THEN heard the devasting news that a West Coast Eagle legend Chris Mainwaring had passed away.
Its weigh in night too......at least thats good news....I lost 1.6 and now 68.5 !! Slowly getting back to where I should be.

So went in and weighed this morning and I came in at 70.1 ..... 100 grams over the 2 kilo's I am allowed ... (BUGGER IT!!!!) ... but they let me off paying coz of the finger!! Must have been the surgery as I weighed in lighter on the scales at the hospital, but do know from previous weigh in at hospital their scales differ to mine by 1.5 kilo's.
Anyways off work for the rest of the week .
In the meantime its back to counting those points and keep on trying to lose this extra weight.....3 weeks to next ww weigh and I fly to Melbourne just after for At Home get together and visit daughter. Please don't let me get bored and raid the fridge and pantry while I home!!!
Ohhhhhhhh yeaaaaaaaa daughter flys in tomorrow for job interview.....be home for a quick visit before she flies back to Melbourne to wait for me to visit her...

But with the help of my hubby, the forums, my friends I did manage to finish the week back on track. The result being now that I have just weighed in (at home) and had a small gain of 300 grams (am 67.8 now)......so hey I got out of that better than I thought I would.
A picture of my mum this week to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM!!! My dear Mum turned 78 yesterday. I risked the shocking weather forecasted yesterday to travel the 1 1/2 hours to spend a few hours with her before the wind picked up and it started raining. I had to leave Mum and race the storm home but ohhhh it was worth it to see Mum so happy....and I made it home before the storm set in.
