As William is the latest happening in my life at the moment todays post will of course be full of lots of pics of him…he's so cute I am sure you won't mind.
Kylee has been using the swing to settle the wee man…he has a lot of trouble with getting his wind up and she has found he settles quicker in the swing.
Me…diet wise, I have been on track and have lost a kilo this week. A long way to go to get back to where I was before christmas….and then even longer to get back to goal……but plodding away at it.

Last Friday the 10th, my son Simon celebrated his 40th. He hosted a bbq/spit at his house and our best friends travelled down from Geraldton and started with us and drove up with Ted. I drove up with Kylee and William….Kylee is still not allowed to drive after her cesarian.
It was a great evening, more so after a sticking hot 40 degree day.
Its been a busy week….I did a trip down to see Mum and let her and my sister meet little William.
Mum was wrapt…and fell in love with our wee man, as did my sister and brother. They both called around to see us….even though my brother did meet William at Simons 40th. Mum is looking very frail and hasn't been feeling very well at all. Its been so hot of late and I was worried about her and the heat as she doesn't have air conditioning, but she has been feeling cold. She was wearing a jumper the day we visited and it certainly wasn't cold!
I have had my eldest granddaughter Jessica staying over for the weekend, needed some time out from her siblings…..and some one on one time with me. She has been a sheer delight….we have had lots of fun together.
Today we met up with Glenn a radio operator from Canada who was attempting to sail so around the world but rang into some trouble between Australia and Africa, so he turned around and headed back to Fremantle to do his repairs and make up his mind as to what he was going to do. Today he told us, the yacht is going to be repaired and then sold. He is getting an agent to sell it and he's flying back home. He is a truly wonderful man.
Anyways….my diary has been helping some….I still having some good days and some bad days. Good news is I I still weigh the same. I don't feel as fat, but my mirror says I am…but haven't given in. My good health demands I keep on trying.

In the meantime Kylee will organise all the centrelink details and also getting the house on the rental market. As soon as that is done, it will be empty the house and pack up the car and Kylee will be moving north.
I am trying my best to eat as healthy as I can. Some days I succeed, other days I fail. I have given up on ww and points…but have bought myself a diary and each day I record my feelings, my wins and my failures.
