On Christmas Day and Boxing Day.......phewwwwwww it was hot!! Boxing Day in the city apparently recorded nearly 45 degree's and was the hottest Boxing Day on record in the world. Luckily we are 2 hours out of the city, live on a bush block with lots of trees and lawn around the house so thou it didn't reach nearly 45 it was in the 40's...... I was soooooo bloated from the amount of water I drank over the 2 days.....and from all the rubbish I managed to consume too....yep I am guilty of being a "piggy". Ahhhhh well, it was Christmas !!
Christmas Day began early when I awoke early and couldn't go back to sleep. Woke up hubby, got up, opened our pressies, had a coffee and headed up the hill to Collie to play Santa to #2 son and 4 grandies.... Ohhhhh the excitement....it was gorgeous watching their little faces. Left them with their mummy and daddy after a couple of hours with the mess and a swing set to erect ..... hehehe The troubled son and his little family were due to arrive for lunch....so on arrival home it was prepare for that. By then it was really heating up.....so was glad I had decided on seafood and salad......was yummo even if the prawns weren't as tasty as I was hoping they would be. Pity I didn't stop at the meal instead of all day (and the next as well) dipping my hand into the nibblies. Anyways son was well behaved, and in a reasonable mood so the meal was pleasant..... Excitement plus from the little grandies.....Jaydene is nearly one but just loved ripping into the pressies with a huge grin on her little face. Pop and I gave Skye a little lunch bag with water bottle and lunchbox which we had filled with some treats....as she starts kindy next year. Don't think that bag has left her sight since.
#3 son Paul took his family down south to spend with
his partners family......so they still have yet to come around to see what Santa has left here. Coming here this weekend as today Luke, Pauls son from a previous realationship arrives....so all of them will be together.
Missed my daughter something shocking on the day.....althou we did speak a couple of times on the phone. She sent me a lovely maxi dress...beautiful blue colour but the style has left me wondering whether it suited me or not. Hubby is not sure, so rang the store that Kylee bought it from and they said they have another dress, same colour but slightly different style so am going into the Bunbury store over here and see if they have the same....
Anyways...those 2 days flew by and it has been back to work for me the past 2 days....thankfully it hasn't been as hot. I have gotten myself back on track after being a little Christmas piggy....got up on the Thursday morning, removed all the nibblies and treats out of sight.....struggled into a pair of shorts, put on the walking shoes and walked for an hour before I went to work. Too scared to hop on the scales, clothes tell me I gained......BUT I will get back to my goal. No ww weigh in till sometime in January but I have received an invitation to a formal wedding of a close friends son on the 1st March.....so my goal is to be back at goal by then. I don't own a formal outfit so I want to be able to go and buy one and look and feel stunning.
I got home from work yesterday and found sitting on my doorstep this lovely parcel from my good friend Carol. Carol is a competition whizz....always entering them and winning too. This package she won and decided I could have it as I need pampering after all the hard work I do up in my "tin shed" on the market garden ...... THANKS HEAPS BUDDY
