Man is it hot today. 38 and climbing. They say we are meant to get a cool change so I have a leg of lamb out and will make baked spuds and salad. The left over meat will be good for lunches.

3 more days and I am on holidays for 11 wholes days. 2 of them I have home alone ;)

Decided to create a word doc and back up all my bookmarks and passwords etc. sounded good whenI started but now I am over it so am blogging for something different to do .

I am also watching an Ebay auction for a DS game animal crossing. seems to be all the rage. Shan wants it and I wouldn't mind having a go. Currently I am the highest bidder and it has 32 min's to go.

Have not been stitching much of late have to many other things to do or my mind is going in circles. I am finally ready for the kids to go back to school well I thought I was until Jake announces today I stll have not got him new shorts. Oh well next week.

Ok off to hang laundry and then check back in on the auction. I amnot looking until it's over I have bid as much as I am going to.

A quiet day at home today ( I hope) Tuesday is my usual day off and I am SO happy today is Tuesday. Work has been rather busy. No time to think. The days go quick but I am excited about a day top do nothing.

I intend to wash the floors today. they are driving me nuts. I can ask till I am blue in the face but no one else can mop apparently. I also have to get the tax stuff ready for the accountant. Have put that off long enough.

I was going to take the kids to the movies today but they just want to hang at home with me. Nice hey.

Have just about finished getting the school supplies. I am still watching a couple of things on Ebay and plan to visit the school shop the last week of January so will have to buy whatever I cant get elsewhere. We are booked in for the 13th to get Shannons uniform (yes she is very excited) and then we need school shoes and a new back pack or 2 and we are ready.

I need to make a call this morning to confirm but I think we are having dinner with Col's Italian folks. We were to meet them Sunday but they had to cancel.

Ok Off to make Aj's Breakfast he ahs decided poached eggs!

1st January 2009

Well so far so good... Nothing tragic or too eventful has happened yet. In saying that is just on 8am.

I am up alone having a nice cup of tea. I need to wake the tribe shortly for our trip to the city. We need to go collect Jake from a cousins friends in Lilydale so he can come too but I am concerned he will be smelly and typically boy like and need to come home for a shower first so I am thinking I might sneak off and get him while the others sleep and he can tidy up before we go.

We stayed up to see the new year in and watch all the illegal fireworks then went to bed. I have had rotten head aches and think is has more to do with what I am eating/not eating that anything else so today I am making an effort to eat properly. Yesterday I go home at just on 3ish and wondered why I felt yuk. I had not eaten all day just 2 cups of coffee. No wonder I am having issues with my weight. I am so hungry then that I eat anything.

I am going to check out the new wight watcher thing it's a one on one trainer. Not sure what the $$$ is yet or if I am going to do it? Have done wight watchers before twice and fell pregnant both times so it put me off :)

I spoke to my sister last night and she too has gained some weight. She wants to drop 10 kilos by her daughters 18th party in March. We are going to encourage each other and see what happens. I will use this as my short term goal. There is no way I will drop what I want/need to drop by then but if I can make a difference then I might keep going. I just enjoy the wrong foods I am afraid.

Ok AJ is up so best bust a move or we will never get going.
