    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    • Yay, nice to see you back Gwamma. Bummer about the weather though.

      Not sure about Anzac biscuit options Seas. We'll probably whip up a batch, but I'll just let the others eat them, and my kids are OK with gluten so nothing special there either.

      Got my farewell morning tea this morning. I cheated and bought packet brownies and vanilla cake, so I'll just act like I was up at dawn cooking my arse off, they'll never know.

      Hoping for some sunshine today and so far it looks promising, its just so changeable ATM though.

      • I don't think it's necessary to help DS along. He will get there when he gets around to it -- and it won't be long. There is, literally, zero concern on my part in regards to it.

        Likewise, in the shower, he'll wet his face with the shower head (it's one of those that comes off the pole with a hose) wash his own hair and rinse it, and so on. He just doesn't want to have his face wet in the pool -- and I think that's fair enough.

        beyond that, I truly don't 'teach' him anything. Like montessori, it's mostly about modelling and just carrying on. Kids will learn through play -- a nd he's already teaching himself to read and basic maths. So, no input from me is needed.

        • heya G! pleased it is all going well. you will be stoked when your book arrives. i am finding it harder doing my usual sort of weights at the gym since i have been BBYing. altho that could be my fault as i did 2 days consecutively and had no rest before the gym day. i am still very much in love with stiff arm pushdowns. and with my straight leg ozzie pull ups from BBY i have keep the lat burn all week.

          we've made the GF anzacs with chicken food aka quinoa. i skipped the faleo ones as i will prob be the only person who eats them and i dont need the whole lot. or the expense of making them. i'd much rather have some creamed coconut with chocolate for my birthday instead. which is sat. exhubby is gonna be in the hood so we ( as in me and the kids ) will be going out for breakfast and then lunch and maybe camping on the beach for dinner to avoid him LOL

          • Anzac day - hard to believe it is here again. DH reminded me about his Uncle today.
            Uncle P served around the Mediterranean with the second division and was decorated with an MM ( thats quite an honor within the nz troups) in North Africa at which point he was promoted to Lt. Later he was badly injured in the Battle of Casino and was loaded into an ambulance. On the way to the field hospital the ambulance drove over a landmine, and Uncle P sustained what they considered fatal injuries. The medics felt that he wouldn’t survive so he was left for dead. Later when it was found he was still alive he had developed gangrene on his leg which was saved by using maggots. Because one of his legs had multiple fractures it was much shorter than the other and he walked with a stick for most of his life until the age of 70 when he had one of New Zealand’s first full knee replacements. This had the added benefit of giving him back his full length leg.
            Uncle P was the most amazing Man. He served with Charlie Upham, and we went for lunch there one time when Uncle P came to stay. Charlie was an incredible fella as well.
            anyway Anzac day always brings tears to my eyes.

                Oh sure, make me weepy first thing in the morning. Seriously though, that's a beautiful story and memory. Thank you.

                    • the kids were lecturing their dad about how they had to go as they had relatives that went and fought as he was trying to keep them for the day tomorrow LOL they are good kids. this has all reminded me in a round about way of why i have never quite managed to try the potato diet. my great uncle was a pow. he got captured by the italians i think. then they escaped. and got recaptured by the germans. i think when they got liberated, they had been somewhere and managed to binge on potatoes for a while. the guys who rescued them apparently commented on how fat they all were. i was very young when i heard that story and there is no one left to ask about it.

                        Seas when is your birthday ???????
                        Aw, thanks Gwamma! How you doin? ;-)

                        Seas, are you an Aries too? I just hit 38 and felt every year of it after a big night (big for me at least, dont drink too muc too often anymore) last week. Funny, for years I used to get aching knees with a hangover, this time it was agony in one of my legs from the knee to the ankle, right in the bone. Pretty sure it was inflamation rather than dehydration. Don't think I'll be doing that again any time soon.

                        • i am taurus on the cusp of aries but i have cancer rising. and all sorts of other dodgy things in my birth chart. i dont feel old after a big night and i dont have that many. my head does keep spinning so what i usually do is start walking and come home when i feel normal. that is following the theory we cant store alcohol and use it as fuel. i also only drink spirits and usually neat. i thought of you this avo Misabi as i was going for a walk in my vivos in the pouring rain on a very muddy dirt road. after about 3ks the water started to come in and i wasnt treading in puddles. my vivos are currently hanging up above the fire to dry as i need them to go out in it first thing tomorrow.

                            Me also. Except my rising sign is Scorpio. I work hard to control my inner bitch (the Scorpio).

                                Go on, what date is it then? My b-day was in the last week too.

                                Off to the 10 am march this morning, too lazy to get up for the dawn one even if the kids were awake. Hope you are all having a nice morning.
