  • Sad that mum's dementia is worse. Parents are supposed to be invincible, aren't they?

    Lovely that you're having long walks on the beach with your doggies and lavishing in some vitamin D therapy <yes, I'd love to be somewhere warm and sunny right now...>.

    Thoroughly enjoy the rest of your week, though you're looking after your mum, it sounds like a great opportunity to rest and recharge. And don't you start your new job right after the holidays??

    • I'm back at work for 2 weeks before I start my new job!! not back to work till the 9th so this is a nice break.

      I've had a very lazy day today, i had great intentions but in the end I just couldnt be bothered... I'm on holiday after all. and to be honest, I just need to recharge at the moment. took my last antibiotic today but am still hacking up shit off my lungs.

      Got up and made mum and i a ham and cheese omelette (ham features in all my meals today... and probably for the rest of the week ) for breakfast. Took dogs for a walk on the beach. Came home and read book on my e-reader... today's book was OJ simpson's "If i did it".. what a crap book, seriously that man is full of shit... I wouldnt be at all surprised if he did do it frankly. got the bikini on and had a bit of time on the deck in the sun... made mum come and sit out with me. lunch was a ham and camenbert croissant for me (mum gets meals on wheels delivered so she had a chicken casserole). spent the afternoon sorting through mum's wardrobe to see what clothes still fit her... man she's packed on the weight, cant say the old girl doesnt have an appetite that's for sure, put food in front of her and she'll eat it!! bless.

      dinner was ham and salad, and i made some home made chips fried in olive oil. also had a few chocolates today and am sitting here polishing off the rest of the wine that I opened the other night. I did not get to my pilates dvd... i need to though. I've been contemplating buying a kettleball and start doing kettleball swings... we'll see. I need a plan for the new year, I dont want to carry on like I am.

      I've just been watching jack lalanne you tubes about facial exercises as I'm feeling depressed about my saggy jowls. Yep I really want to make some radical changes, I want to look gorgeous next year when i turn 50, not old and frumpy and podgy which is how I currently feel. Of course that will require motivation and more importantly commitment. anyway back to jack, great to watch actually and man didnt he age well!!

      the fireman tells me he has a sore throat so I'm hoping he wont be sick when I get home... hopefully his immune system isnt as stressed as mine was and he'll knock it on the head a bit easier than I have.

      That's all for now folks. HOpe you are all enjoying the summer (or winter as the case may be) break.

          • Well girls, thanks... i love compliments!!! not that i was fishing, but dammit, i'll take them.

            I bought a kettleball today... 8kgs (is that about 20lbs???) phew yes I can see how that gets you going. I did less than a minute probably and felt a bit breathless. tomorrow will do more. but hey, lets just celebrate that i BOUGHT a kettleball.

            bit of time in the bikini again. decided to wash the dogs and give them a groom. did a bit of shopping for groceries (and a kettleball) and then later on mum decided she needed to go to the supermarket so I indulged her.

            went and had drinks with our tenants tonight so feeling slightly pissy eyed as I write this.

            other than that nothing new to report. BUT I BOUGHT A KETTLEBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          • i have felt very stressed since christmas/new year. I think that bug I had just before christmas knocked me around... I am still ahemming a lot with the frog in my throat which is bloody annoying... and of course it doesnt make me feel like exercising particularly. yes yes, another excuse.

                            anyway, this is my last week at my old job - in fact tomorrow is my last day. and leaving a job is stressful especially if you have a reasonable degree of conscientiousness which I do. I'm trying to leave everything in order and impart all the knowledge that is in my head. aaagghhh. and of course I'm training a temp that has been brought in to do my job and that has its own frustrations. But at the end of the day tomorrow I will have done what I can and then its all over rover.

                            had a little pimple looking thing cut out of my hand which turned out to be a basal cell carcinoma so pleased I got that seen to...although I know they're not anything to worry about particularly. in other medical news, i had an ultrasound on my shoulder and there are no tears so i guess it is just frozen shoulder and i will have to deal with it for however long it takes to unthaw. fuck it. and I had a mammogram and that was fine. I put off my cervical smear, I thought those 3 things in one day was enough!!!

                            the fireman and i are off to taupo on friday and then down to the chateau for a wedding on the saturday so that's almost an additional stressor at the mo knowing I have to go away for the weekend before I start my new job. however i am REALLY looking forward to the wedding of my cousin (who I am really close to) to her man of 3 years (they are both 50). I am extremely happy for her...

                            last weekend the fireman and I went to napier for the weekend, I managed to pick up some super cheap flights a couple of days before... the deciding factor to go was when i checked the weather forecast and saw little suns on the map for the whole weekend. auckland has had the shittiest weather and i really just felt like i wanted to see sun. we had a lovely time, visited lots of vineyards, ate yummy food and had lots of sex TMI??? i had garlic bread twice...naughty but I did enjoy it. But yes I pay for it in terms of my skin looks crappy, I get quite windy, bowel movements arent quite as clean... you know what i mean. so have been trying to eat better this week which for the most part has been working.

                            anyway thats about all for now, I do hope to use the kettleball, i just need to get into a rhythm of doing it I think.

                            I will try and catch up on everyone's journals as soon as I can. Hope there havent been any dramas.

                              • i'm so slack about my journal at the mo. to be honest, I'm about as far away from primal as possible some days so i feel a bit fraudulent being here at all. I try to be good, but I have a lot of slips. my waistline is increasing. boo.

                                so i'm into my 2nd week of new job. it is going to be really interesting... at this stage it's all very new and I dont really know much at all, but I'm really a data analyst in this role, so it will all become clear once I start analysing Nice people, great organisation, global company so have good policies and procedures. and it is really nice to get to today which would normally be payday and know that i dont have to do it! hmmm however on the flip side, it is my old pay day today but not mine... i've moved to a monthly pay rather than fortnightly and I've got a long time to wait until the 20th of the month.

                                the fireman is currently snoring in the next bedroom... seriously I sometimes wonder how I will cope being away with him for a month when we go to europe in september. trying to plan our trip, which way to fly there and back is causing all the issues at the mo.

                                it is 4.30 am and of course i cant sleep. too many wines again. it was supposedd to be an alcohol free night last night, but I succumbed to temptation. bloody hopeless. I will aim for an AF day tomorrow. we had a yummy dinner tonight, pork medallions in a creamy tomatoey sagey sort of sauce, it was really flavoursome.... with roasted pumpkin with sage butter.

                                not a lot else to report. no exercise happening. my shoulder is bloody painful at the mo, getting my clothes off at night is starting to prove difficult and is causing me grief. I really dont know if I should see specialist and get a cortisone shot in it or not.... will it just come right if I leave it. grrrr

                                sale of my mothers house should settle on friday... bloody well hope so, was supposed to settle last friday but there was a miscommunication between lawyers. tsk.
