Sorry that I have been missing for a while...things have been very busy, and I have not had alot of time to get onto the computer!
I have been doing training for the job in the deli (which I am really enjoying) and I have been doing a bit of work in Kyenton in a chocolate and coffee shop...I'm not really sure if I will continue with this one - the deli has given me an extra shift, which I want to take...but it may mean I won't be as available for the shop as much...and the hours are longer which means I need to use a few decisions to make!!
I am going to do a coffee course through them (5th March), so I will see what happens after that!!

I have a few pics to upload, so will leave it there:)

On Friday night the boys got 'Invested' at cubs~they were so excited for most of the week waiting!! During the ceremony they had their white scarves replaced with the blue and yellow~they also recieved many badges that I now have to sew on, so there goes most of my spare time this week:)
I had my first day in the Deli on Friday, and it was good ~ I still have a lot to learn, but I feel comfortable with what I am doing and the others are really nice. The job is part-time which suits with the kids, and gets me out of the house:)

Hope alll are having a great weekend:)

"Bloggest Loser"

I am really excited about doing this...having the show on has really helped with motivation already - and the little tasks that Beckie is giving us are great too:)

I have made up a new blog which has my horrible photo's (that Beckie dared us to do) as well as my measurements ect... I hated posting these pic's - but I know at the end I will be glad to show them off to see how far I have come...I am going to do this!!!
The photo's are very embarrassing to be out there for all to see...I don't really know if anyone in my real life knows/or reads this blog - so if you would like to see the other blog just send me an email and I will let you in:)

We are really enjoying having our place back to ourselves - Ray left on an early flight yesterday morning...and the tension left with him:)
We had a lovely, lazy day just the four of us and it was bliss:)
We went out for a long lunch - even though I ate indulgently...I didn't feel guilty, it was just one meal - I ate what I wanted, I enjoyed every mouthful, and I stopped when I was full...I find that in the past, when we go out to eat I don't want to waste anything on the plate...I paid for it
I felt so much better leaving something on the plate because I had, had enough...a great feeling - not having to roll out the

I have been looking at and it is a very interesting site - I signed up for the 8 week motivation email. They also have some workouts you can put on your ipod and meal plans...which I have found some nice recipes...and lots of other stuff...its worth a peek..and its just register to log in and thats it!!
So go have a look!!!

Beckie has started a bloggest loser challenge to run while the TV show is on - which is a great idea - she has made up a new blog about it go and have a look!!

Well I'm off to do my yogalates dvd...I have really missed not being able to exercise in the comfort of my own
Hope you all have a great day:)

Hi All ;0)
It's been a pretty quiet morning so far...I was up chatting till 2am with Beckie, Ckk, Crankybee and Jac...very interesting conversations...still laughing ...especially when I read Becks post this morning :0P

Vic's dad is keeping his distance today...which I am not complaining about...still only the one, he smells like an unwashed cave!!

I had a go at him yesterday afternoon, he brought a whole heap of stuff over to give to the boys, which they have displayed in their rooms (and have become attached to), when I got home from weigh in yesterday - he had taken the stuff out of the rooms and put it back in his case...the boys came home and asked where the stuff was and he made some lame excuse and put it back cause he felt bad (about being caught out!) I was so mad I grabbed the stuff and put it all back on his case and told him that its not right to give things to children then take it away...if that is how he feels he can shove it all up his ass!!!

I really shocked him as I am normally a quiet person, who never loses my temper...he knows how pissed off I am and has been really quiet ever's probably the first time I have been remotely mean to him!!

I was still fuming when Vic got home....he said to me this morning that its the first time he has seen me ready to kill...I think I scared him a bit too, wondering what happened to his easy going, never standing up to someone who has made me angry, Wife

So it was really nice to have a huge laugh with the gals, last night....I certainly slept well:)

On a brighter note;
1. Aspire to be Barbie - the bitch has everything.
2. If the shoe fits - buy one in every colour.
3. Take life with a pinch of salt... a wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila.
4. In need of a support group? - Cocktail hour with the girls!
5. Go on the 30 day diet. (I'm on it and so far I've lost 15 days).
6. When life gets you down - just put on your big girl panties and deal with it.
7. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just my personality.
8. I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.
9. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.
10. Don't get your knickers in a knot, it solves nothing; and makes you walk funny.
11. When life gives you lemons in 2007 - turn it into lemonade then mix it with vodka.
12. Stay true, caring and loyal to your friends - when it comes to enemies remind yourself of 'opposite day' from primary school
13. Remember every good looking, sweet, single male is someone else's ex boyfriend!
14. Enjoy this 2007!
15. Now smile and send to any girl wasting time at work, suffering from a hangover, suffering from a hangover at work or that might need a reason to smile!!!
