Yeap shopping two days before Christmas is a very brave feat! I finished all my last purchases this morning, would have been done yesturday except I forgot to take the empty soda stream with me to the supermarket and they were out of fillet steak last night. Thankfully our farmers market is close to both a butchers and farmers so a quick stop to those (and Starbucks) and we are all done. I hope!
Going to hit the beach this afternoon too. We have a great swimming beach 2 minutes away so can pop down there for an hour or so without it being a major mission (as things tend to be when you have two little kids). Plus it gives me some bribery points for the rest of the day - always helpful.
morning all....one more sleep........ til the jolly big red man comes down the chimney ............
heading into Christchurch again today to deliver some christmas cheer.......so that should be fun the day before..........
but I need to make the merangues etc.... before I head in - so a semi busy day here. Some of you around the world have an extra few hours up your sleeves - lucky you....... anyway have a great day peoples
"never let the truth get in the way of a good story "
i am making pavs soon. did mince pies last night when i was roasting some lamb. right now i am trying to work to get my hours in and deal with shreiking screaming kids as we had to get up at 5:30 to go get a net in. lots of freaky blue jelly fish floating around out in the ocean. very very pretty but apparently they sting. may have to brave town but i also may dodge it as we're out on a boat after lunch. have a great day everyone!
LOL never a dull moment here! we need to think of a project to get into once we've made our way thru the holiday season. still out on ketosis. all that fat and not enough real food does me in. i doubt i could do the potato diet. maybe i will go back to the basics with the primal blueprint diet or even a whole 30. except boo no dairy!!! i have been managing to only put 4tsp of cream in my coffee and only have 3 cups a day this week which has taken steel nerves but i am getting there. i worked out i was prob getting 1000+ cals a day from coffee so i needed to do something about it. so yeah, we shall see. aim for the next week or so is to dodge sugar and so far so good.
slightly different subject. multi tasking here whilst working. went to put some nail varnish on my toes as i have been slack of late. i get some tissue to put in between my toes to stop my toes overlapping and smudging the varnish. and guess what?! i didnt need to use it!! my minimuses must be making a diff in how my feet sit which is pretty cool!
I just can't be fussed to clean the house. So annoying. I need to do it before picking up my ILs on Wednesday. :P It won't take long once I get up and do it, but. . . honestly, I just can't be bothered.
I think I'm so bothered by them coming, that I'm entirely unmotivated.
Also, it's really nice outside, so we enjoyed the beach and went swimming at the pool as well yesterday, and honestly, didnt' do any cleaning or anything. :P I want to do that again, since it's so nice today.
The fog didn't roll into our hood until. . . 4 or so. It was a lovely day.
Lacking motivation here too Zoe. I did clean out dd's room and went over the spare in anticipation of my parents coming tomorrow. And I want to ditch the baby bath and change table this afternoon as dd has finally decided that pooing in the toilet is for her! I think that is as far as my de cluttering will go this time though.
Had a wonderful swim at the beach yesturday. The water was so warm and no sign of any jelly fish thankfully! Had to get the kids home after an hour and a half because I started worrying about getting sunburnt, pity really but the sun is so relentless on the beach.
Off to work now and I am looking forward to a couple of days off this week. Will be very relaxing.
i always feel like i am out in some bizzare BDSM gear when i wear heels these days.
planning on a swim this evening if it stays warm. the jelly fish were truly beautiful from the boat. floating circles of blue in varying sizes with frilly edges in jelly. i dont think i would want to swim with them either. altho they are prob preferable to sharks LOL
i do love sharks. just not to swim with. i am thinking of taking my wetsuit when we go out on the boat this avo. if we go past the top secret paua spot, i could have a dive. there were also a stack of dolphins in the harbour at the end of last week so i could leap in with them. at least the sharks wouldnt get me then LOL pav is in the oven. i resisted making some coconut creme brulee as i will be the only person eating it and i have enuf to eat already. recipe is here Coconut crème brûlée ditch the sugar or maybe put in coconut sugar or some honey and it will be all good.
