A to Z of me….

A is all about acceptance. I must learn to take and receive advise offered to me. I am a good one for giving it to others but not understanding and accepting it from others. 
B is all about books. Ahh I love books and reading, nothing better than curling up on the lounge in front of the fire…or in bed with a good book.
C is for our cruise….roll on March next year.
D is for diet….say no more!
E is for feeling like an ELEPHANT!! 
F is for family. Love all mine, though boy sometimes they do frustrate me too!!
G is for grandchildren…whats that saying..If I knew grandkids were going to be this much fun I would have had them first.!! My eldest is now 18, then I have 3 pre-teens, a 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 2 x 6, a 5 year old, then adopted 4 year olds…and our little William.  oh boy where have all the years gone. Now they are older I don't get to see them often as I would like.
H is for husband. Nearly 33 years together and still going strong, though in saying that it hasn't always been easy. 
I is for is all about me. This is my time, to learn to love me again. 
J is for jumpers….had to drag mine out these past few days, its getting cold. Fire has been lit these past few nights.
K is for kids, whether they be mine or my grandkids….love having little ones in my life.
L is for love…it sure does make the world a happier place.
M is for mums. My mum is 85 soon. I saw her on Sunday, and she is looking so frail. Happy to see she has put on a few kilo's…she was down to 48 kilo's a few months back. And there is Ted's mum, she is 89 in August and now can't walk without a walker. She has had a few falls of late and now as a result of the last one an ulcer has formed on her leg from a graze that didn't heal. A real worry both of them.
N is for nip..nor the weather has cooled down I have been enjoying a "wee nip" of port of an evening. It helps me relax after a days work, and it helps me sleep too.
O is for overseas. Hope to do a few trips after the cruise. One on the cards is another trip to New Zealand as we only stop at a few places on the cruise. Would love to go to Canada, don't think we can afford that…not unless we win lotto.
P is for people. In my job I come across some very rude ones that think cleaners are the lowest of the low. I don't care…I work hard in my job and take pride in what I do. 
Q is for quote…and my quote at the moment is I can do, and I will do...
R is for relief. Relieved that I saw the deal on ww and I jumped at it by raiding my savings. Relieved coz I won't like wasting my money…as so far week two I am already keeping myself in the zone...
S is for star sign. I am a Pisces..It's a pair of Fish that represents Pisces, a symbol that prompts others to suggest that these people 'go with the flow' and 'don't make waves.' Both of these labels are true, since Pisces are fluid and easy-going. The fact that two fish (as opposed to one) represent the members of this sign also speaks to the duality of Pisces, their yin and yang sensibility. Pisces alternate between reality and non-reality in keeping with their introspective natures.  Pisces can be hard to pin down, prompting some to call them the chameleons of the zodiac. Pisces are compassionate, charitable and will quickly put the needs of others ahead of their own. It's this kind of self-sacrifice that keeps these folks going. The flip side to their giving natures is that the oft-timid Fish are likely to be taken advantage of by less well-meaning souls. This is so me…I am told I am a real pisces.
T is for travel. Trip this year will be just up to Carnarvon to see daughter and William. Next year we have the cruise and trip to Queensland planned.
U is for understanding…something fortunately that my husband is. 
V is for victory…I will win this weight battle…again.
W is for William, love that I saw him briefly this weekend. 
X is for X-ray…got to go in for one soon.
Y is for you…yes you reading this…without you and your support I am on my own…thank you for being there.
Z is for Zumba…must get out my DVD and do it now that the weather is becoming crappy and cold.

Kylee traveled down from Carnarvon on the weekend, arriving Friday night towing a big trailer to pick up all her household stuff she had stored here. She and Garry needed it all now that they have their own place. I had the pleasure of looking after this lil one while Kylee sorted out all her gear and loaded it all in the trailer. We had a few family members come around Friday night for dinner to see them so the lil man had smiles for everyone…and it was great for them to see Kylee as heck knows when they will make it down this way…they are stony broke now. Anyways Saturday lunchtime Kylee was gone again….and made it back to Carnarvon safe and sound. 

Right…to end this tonight…it was weigh in night, 1.1 gone. Roll on next week, menu's to plan now, so goodnight till next time.
