And I am off again...

I am flying out tomorrow daughter and her hubby are having a bust up. Don't know how serious this is going to be...or if it can be resolved, I think a lot of talking has to be done.
Kylee is devastated, Stephen is her world...she loves him so.
So for her sake...I hope there is hope for them.

Having a break

On Wednesday it was weigh in day again....a gain of 700grams for me...not sure why as I thought I'd had a great week. Obviously not !!                                     Anyways thinking about it all and the very social week I have coming up I decided bugger it...I am going to have a break from weight watchers and just eat and enjoy. Know it isn't going to help the scales but at the moment  I just don't care !!!

Tommy and his birthday lego

This afternoon I headed up the hill to Simon & Tracey's to help Tommy celebrate his 5th birthday. I had a great arvo with Tommy and all 4 of the kids. Will see them all again Saturday evening as we head out to Ted's youngest brothers 50th birthday.
Tomorrow I have a girlfriend around for morning tea....then later on in the day have a cabinet maker coming around to look at see what renovations I want done to my kitchen and give me a quote. I am loving all the "new"  in my life.  After the kitchen is new flooring throu the living area's and then that should do us for a while.   Some rooms need a serious paint job, but that can wait.

Great Week

Me and Xara

Its been a great week. I have had my hair done and I love it, the colour the style and the ease of doing it. Got my personal number plates for the car...and have got my head in the right place and got myself back on track food & excersise wise. A loss of 1.7 this week sooo have 1.5 to get back to where I was before I left for Melbourne....then maybe I can get my shit together and lose the last 5 kilo's or so to get myself back into the 60's !!

Lovely rainbow in the city after the footy game

I had a wonderful time in Melbourne, it was soooooooo nice to see my girl again. She is looking happy despite the worries she has with her fertility. Having bought a puppy, the cutest little Retrieverdor they have named Shera has taken a lot of the stress away. Next week Kylee has a ultrasound and a few more blood tests so hopefully we'll know more then. But a big concern is her weight, they  (Kylee & hubby) really need to change their diets.

As you can see by a few pics I have put of the highlights of my trip was the footy and my beloved West Coast Eagles. The 1st half was great, they were winning by about 45 points, but in the second half the Bulldogs manned up and started playing man on man and boy did the Eagles get put under pressure. Made Tanya and I bite our nails there for a bit I can tell you..thought for a while we would lose...but they dug deep and showed they were the better side.

The Melbourne musuem and the Tutankhamun display was awesome. Kylee & Stephen bought the tickets to it for us as a surprise and wowww so happy they did. His story and his tomb with all its treasures has always fasinated me.

We did heaps of walking around the city and shopping centers, met up with my neice who was over in Melbourne too for a aromatherapy course and spent a day with her at the Victorian Markets and DFO stores browsing and catching up.  Also had a wonderful couple of hours with Maria. I met Maria online in 2005 on the ww boards and then personally back in 2006 when I flew over to see Kylee....and everytime I do visit my girl I try to catch up with her, she has been a wonderful friend.

Now I am back home, its back on track for me....Melbourne, the food, the lifestyle I lead whilst there does not agree with my weight. Over 3 kilo's gained in 6 days!! Back to the real world for me!!
