  • well done on the 40 squats jac.

    Getting married inside, at the Pullman Hotel. Dress is finished. I'm not 100% happy with it but I am at the stage of being over it.

    Have been having a stressful week with Mum having had a stroke and now cannot speak and cannot swallow. So she is on nil by mouth currently. I think we are looking at an end of life scenario now and that just saddens me (naturally). I feel there is an awful lot going on in my life at the mo... I'm having way too many tears lately...

    • Oh no, that's really sad about your Mum. Understandable that you'd have lots of tears, and the contrast between her life ending and your wedding must make it all feel really sharp (did that make sense?).

      I googled the Pullman (in a very non-stalkerish way, lol) - it looks lovely!!

      • Ah, Suse, so sad about your Mom. At least you have her now in a good care place, rather than at home under the care of your brother. Agree with Jac, the upcoming wedding must only add to what you're going through. I suppose we'll all have to deal with this sort of stuff with our moms eventually, just hate the thought of it. I lost my dad as a child, so Mom's all I have left.

        You'll need topost some wedding pics, of course...

        • Well one day to go and I feel very calm. I'm looking forward to the day even though I feel that I wish I had tried just that much harder to get into better shape. But luckily the fireman loves me as I am... It WILL be an awesome day, I feel very blessed to have met someone so wonderful. No he's not perfect and no he doesnt love my dogs, but then I'm farrrrr from perfect too. I think we will continue to have a pretty cool life together. I will post a photo

            • Is any man/prospective partner perfect? I suspect not. You've found an amazing man who makes you happy. Cherish and celebrate that.

                • We had an amazing day. The weather was beautiful, not that it mattered particularly as our ceremony was at the hotel. But it certainly made the outlook better. I will post a photo when I get them, I only have some blurry iphone ones at the mo. Everything went really smoothly and I think I can safely say that all our guests had a great time. We went to Queenstown the following day for our mini-moon and that was lovely. Cold though, one night the temperature plummeted to 2 degrees! Aaaagh, what the... its the middle of summer. Went to some lovely vineyards and drank some lovely wines and had some lovely food. I felt very relaxed and far away from all my troubles!

                  But seriously now that I'm back, I really need to do something about my diet. my stomach feels huge. My age old complaint!

                  • Suse, that's wonderful to hear. Welcome back Hopefully while you are feeling so relaxed will turn out to be a great time to do something positive health wise. All the bestest.

                    • Well my relaxation period lasted diddly squat. Unfortunately, my mother passed away last week, very peacefully. It was a privilege to be there with her when she left. The funeral was lovely. I was civil with my brothers.

                      Next week the fireman starts his 8 weeks of radiation.

                      One of my dogs has an ear infection. 2 weeks at the kennels while I was away tending to Mum was the cost of an iphone! Now add more vet fees. I feel quite broke.

                      I have a PILE of work to do.

                      It goes without saying that my body has completely done a major freak out, my back has seized, I have cold sores and pimples all over my face.

                      When will I have some good news I wonder. What doesn't kill me will make me stronger

                      • Suse, I'm so sorry about the loss of your mum. Hang in there - you've had your share of crap, it must come to an end soon. Will there be more drama with your brothers over the will? Or are you free of that stress now?

                        • I certainly hope there wont be any drama with my brothers Jac. Time will tell I guess. I'm not the executor so not my problem.

                          Still having issues with my back. Have an infected fingernail that requires antibiotics, am on lots of painkilling drugs as well for the back. Struggling with work at the mo. ho hum. Need to find my mojo.

                          • Sad to hear about your mom, but so good that you were able to be there at the end. I hope it was peaceful for her.

                            I'm happy to kick your mojo in the backside, if that helps any.

                              • Well it's been a while since I posted. Just a bit on the slack side lately. Seems to be a lot going on and yet nothing much going on. Know what I mean??

                                Anyway onto something more interesting..... I had my fat frozen last week!!!!!!! It's called coolsculpting (google it) and it is to supposedly help in breaking down stubborn fat deposits. It is FDA approved and I researched it a lot and decided it was worth a go. So ask me in a couple or 3 months how it has gone. So far, I'm just a bit sore (numb, kind of strange really.)
