At Last.....

At last hubby has started receiving his age pension....not a full one as I work, but gee that little extra sure does help, I am on top of all our bills now.  I had to submit my earnings today to Centrelink so they could work out what hubby was entitled to this fortnight and I was disappointed to see that the extra shift I did yesterday resulted in hubby losing more $$'s.
From now on, unless I really have to, I won't be doing any extra shifts, its just not worth it.

Hubby has really brightened the yard up since he has been home. The lawns and gardens look really great, they have all been weeded and mulched...the man has a real green thumb. 

Weigh in day today...for the 1st time in a couple of weeks I had a loss. I have been so good too, but with all the yoyo'ing I have been doing the past few months I guess my body had to wait and make sure I wasn't going to start the yoyo'ing again.  I don't think so....I want to lose weight. Think its going to be a long hot summer this year and I want to be able to enjoy it.  

Kylee has 10 working days to go then she has finished work. She was going to work till she was 34 weeks, but her Dr advised her to stop at 32 weeks.  She wanted to drive up and spend a few weeks with her fiancee, but Dr has said no and so have I, not having her driving 12 hours on her own!! We have come to a compromise and are driving her to our good friends a 6 hour drive away and will stay overnight and have a catch up with them and Garry will drive down meet us there and pick up Kylee....and do it again at the end of November to pick her up. She will be here for her weekly Dr visits and the last month countdown to the lil man's birth.  


  1. Glad to hear your hubby's money finally came through although it's a bummer that you lose out because you work as well.
    Good work on the loss - keep it up !
    Have the best day !

  2. Thanks so much for the visit! I love making new friends!

  3. I think it kinda sucks that your hubby's pension is docked cos you work a few more hours.
    Seriously, he has earnt every single cent of it... working all his life.

    As for Kylee driving that huge distance, I am glad your guys sorted out a safer way to get her there. Can't have her getting exhausted.
