Another week

Doog just lurves the new bedroom rugs

gee the weeks are flying by...already its the end of June, that means in 4 weeks time I will be in Melbourne.
Have had 4 days work last week, and another 4 this week, one is actually tonight which is a new shift to learn for me. I am enjoying it...even though it is "unskilled" work. I know that there are a few extra shifts coming up again soon too.
The new mattress has turned out to be soooo comfy and the changeover from the waterbed to it has been with no drama's. As you can see by the pic, my cat loves the new bedroom espesially the new rugs. Also loves that he can "hide" under the bed too !!
Tomorrow is my mum's birthday...she turns 82. I am hoping to make the trip down to see her, the weather this week here has been cold and wet with thunderstorms. A another front with more thunderstorms is due I am hoping it does arrive so the weather will be better for me for the drive tomorrow,  don't want to do the trip in a thunderstorm.
This weeks weigh showed another small loss....400grams.

Been Busy....

Have had a busy week, not that I am complaining. The two days a week I work leaves me the rest of the time to spend as I want. I look forward to extra shifts if I get them thou...I have a extra one on Thursday night.
My waterbed sprung a leak the other night, so some of my time has been spent shopping. Decided to get a "proper" mattress this time, one that will help both Ted and my back. We found a mattress that we both feel comfy on then decided what the heck and went looking and bought a whole new bedroom suite. I have never owned a brandnew bedroom suite.
Came home and looked at the crappy old carpet on the floor and decided to replace that too. Anyways the carpet has been ripped up, new carpet goes down tomorrow...and the new bedroom suite arrives on Thursday...would have loved it sooner but I work Tuesday & Wednesday's so no-one would be home. 
Now I get the chance to shop for new curtains, bedside lamps, clocks and rugs :-)
Next thing on the my kitchen. That was next on the list to be done, but I am too happy about the bedroom that I can wait a bit. I am ringing up tomorrow thou and getting someone to come and give me a estimated quote about what I want done.

Friday I had my little grandson Matthew for most of the day while Tanya went out for lunch with some friends. My cat usually runs and hides when the kids come, he is a very timid cat and hates the noise the kids make. Matthew found him and I was very surprised that he allowed Matty to cuddle him.

Weigh in last week saw 500g gone. Don't know how this week will go, have had a few hungry days...we'll wait and see.

Its another week and its been a quiet one. Just had a long weekend, Monday was Foundation Day,  but a boring one spent at home, was hoping Simon and Tracey would call in, they said they might....but we saw no-one and went nowhere. At least we were able to catch up on a few chores....well hubby did, I just pottered around doing not much at all. I thought a lot about Dad as it was his birthday last week, 10 years this year in October since he passed and ohhhh I still still miss him. He would be so proud of me I know. I promised him I would give up smoking and I managed that before he died and still haven't broken that promise. And I am still plodding away with my weight loss...he saw that yoyo over the years. I take after his side of the family, his sisters (my aunts) battled with their weight (and thyroid problems)constantly too.

Anyways must get off my butt....get some housework done and put the slow cooker on. I have work this arvo and a meeting tonight.

Ohhhh 400grams lost this week. My weight watchers "At Home" program runs out next week, and my consultant asked me to make the choice as to whether or not to continue on..or go it alone. I have learnt I can't do it on my own, I have failed too many times have decided to go ahead and keep the consultants up. Belinda, my consultant is great, she has helped me out so many times since my return from holidays....and I do so want to go over to Melbourne and see Kylee looking and feeling great.  So yep...the "good witch" hat is on....

Still smiling....

Shawn & Shayden
Shayden, with help from Kaleb, blows out his candles
Skye, Kaleb, Shayden & Jaydene playing on the tramp with Shawn

All is well in my world.
Had Shawn here on Saturday for his access with his kids...a few pics above. Shayden turned 3 a few days before his visit so of course the cake came out....think Kaleb blew the candles out 3 times before Shayden finally managed to beat him.  Shawn loves those kids...and at times he acts no older than them, its great to see.

Work is going okay. On Monday I started in Bunbury filling in for a friend, had a 6am left home at 5.30am, its pouring down with rain, & 10k's up the road I get pulled up for liciense & tyre check and breathalyser !!  Get to work, set up cleaning trolley and 1st job is center managers office. My biggest fear about that job was that the alarm there wouldn't disarm....guess didn't!! I get in the office, have 3 seconds to pin in the code, did that, it says do it again, do it again and the next thing is its making a hell of a racket....I freaked out!!!  Tried, and tried, and tried again...and finally it shut up! By this time I was a shaking mess!! Anyways got the offices done quickly, still shaky, armed the alarm with no trouble and went on with the rest of the jobs before I had to walk with security to open the doors at 8am.
At 9am I get a phone call asking if I can do an extra 2 hours and finish at 2pm instead of 12.  Phewwwwww 8 hours on my feet...and boy was I footsore, I wore the wrong shoes...
Anyways....I still enjoy the work, its so social and I love the fact that I can have interaction with other people, never had that out the farm.

Weight...loss of 900g this week, slowly getting back down. Still have 4 kilo's to go to get back to pre-holiday weight...I am hoping to get there by the end of July for my trip to Melbourne. Onwards and downwards.
