  • Well 'THE DAY' has dawned with a slight frost, but clear blue skies. It will be perfect for the wedding. Heres hoping the wind doesn't pick up !!!! they are getting married at 3.30, so it can blow like 40 bas---ds after that !!!!!
    We had a large plastic wind break made for the BBQ house last week, so that will be really nice sitting by the open fire, out of the wind - if it cuts up rough later.
    So all those last minute jobs to do now - vacuum and wash the floor, start preparing platters, getting truck ready to pick up bridal party, BBQ house floor, set tables, prepare outdoor fire so all I have to do is set a match to it !!!!, and the list will go on and on and on.
    I must remember to feed baby calf, sort dog before bride gets here, make toilet signs.......oh I give up , I'd best just go and do some things !!!!

    Have the bestest day peoples.......... and I might pop back in when I am in desperate need of 'time out' LOL

        • well h-e-l-l-o, today is the first day of the rest of my life !!!!!!! LOL
          What an amazing day yesterday. Absolutely everything went well. Perfect day, nearly perfect weather, food fantastic, pretty much everything ticked off the list !
          The wind got up a wee bit, so I didn't light the candles, but the BBQ fire was a huge success, and the seafood, fruit, cheese and meat platters were very well recieved.
          Only a couple of wee negetives....you always get the drunk guy at these things, and I found him wandering aimlessly through the house smoking !!!!! I asked him to please take his smoke outside, and I got a wee bit of back chat - as you do, and the other thing was that we had all forgotten that the grassgrub beetles fly in november - and a house lit up like whatever is a wee bit of a bug magnet !!!! Well you would not believe that bugs everywhere. We even took the cover off the pool and had the underwater lights on. Guess how 6 million of these little suckers succumbed? I will have to do the scoop thing before I start my swimming regime !!!
          So today is clean up, and then I have 8 people coming for happy hour this afternoon. I have already made stuff for that - so just a wee bit of prep later on.
          The honeymooners will be up soon, so I had best make them a bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomato, cheese combo - before they head off for their next social outing.
          Catch ya later

          • Okay so this week hasn't started too well - tried to begin my swimming training for Akaroa ocean swim in Feb, but the pool was toooooo cold last night, so this old wuss has asked DH to turn the heating up just a wee bit !!!!! Not primal at all !!!!!
            And then one thing led to another and I was eating and drinking like a madman all day yesterday !!!!!!!
            so maybe another start today ?????
            I really need to formulate a plan........ so that is my goal today - formulate a plan, then implement the damned thing !!!! LOL

            catch you later

            • heya gwamma. primal or not lol no fun freezing your ass off. the whole point of the exercise addiction is to enjoy it. from memory the sea at akaroa is quite warm? it is all relative i guess but you will be moving so that will help. and if you are real lucky one of those lovely dolphins will come and tow you along.

              i had a food day like that yesterday. the trick i am finding is to ID the cause and avoid that. which is like formulating the plan and implementing it. my latest idea is to work out what i can do instead when i spot one of the causes as often i cant avoid them that easily. i tell you some days i feel like one of those cartoon females tied to the train track with the lights of the train heading my way at breakneck speed. so doing much better today. temporarily lol

              • hey Seaweed, managed to get in the pool this morning. (14 degrees) Dh forgot to turn the heating on, but I found an old wetsuit, and swam my 72 lengths, so about 1 km. I think the race is 2.8km....so I have a wee way to go !!!! However I haven't swum for 20 years, so if I can get in the pool after 20 years out of pool, and still swim 1 km......heres hoping I can increase that before feb !!!! I have entered the race, so I gotta do it now !!!!

                trying desperately to clean DHs office today. I can't stand all the cr-p everywhere. He can never find anything, and the floor is literally covered...... is it any wonder that I drink so much !!! LOL
                Anyway just back from Rangiora, after picking up my naughty little red car, and I bought some stuff to help keep the office more organised. Lets see how long it stays tidy....but don't hold your breath !

                • is it a race or a fun swim? we have a race with a fun walk across the land here at the end of january. they publish the results on the net lol i have always always wanted to do the mountain bike bit as it goes 44ks across alot of private land alot of which i cant get across. co-incidentally i happen to know the people who came last the last 3 years in a row lol they dont know each other and i only know them in passing but that really put me off. i did the walk this year and entered in a false name. i won my class so it wasnt so bad but still. it kinda sucks to say fun walk and then post results and times for everyone who has google to find! so yeah, my tip to you, is enter in a fake name and just have fun.

                  • no I don't think that its a fun one - but I won't be aiming for first !!! LOL, however so long as its not last or DNF - I will be happy !!! DH will possibly take the jetboat along, so he and Mum can also be part of the action !!!!
                    I havn't had much to do with wetsuits, but have a nasty rash in the old pits after my swim this morning. I might need to vaseline them for my next pool session.
                    You know my biggest fear about swimming in the sea is sharks! I have always maintained that I so do not want to be biten/eaten by a shark or run over by a train. I hate not knowing what is beneath, and of course stupid me watched all the Jaws movies years ago. So I am gonna have nightmares about that - but one thing these earthquakes have taught me....if your numbers up, your numbers up !!!!! no point in worrying too much about it !!! LOL. easier said than done !

                      i am jaws generation as well so i have irrational fears. and when you are swimming out in the middle of the sea down here. and you see shadows. and the seaweed swirling. it is very difficult to go for the if your number is up, your number is up logic as you kinda feel like you have just walked into it. i also so love all the shark stories the old guys tell me. so that doesnt help when i am out in the water. at least if you are in a race with loads of other people, there is a good statistical chance, the shark wont get you. unless there is more than one and then you are screwed lol

                              • well today DH is off to the canterbury A'n'P show. Middle DD and her BF are also going. In fact they camped out in the swag at the show over night. We made a wee sign to advertise DH's buisness, and this will hang over baby goats back. He is going to meet and greet people all day, so if you happen to be at the Canterbury A'nP show today, and you see a wee pet goat carrying a sign....he is my grandkid. Please go and give him a kiss. he L-O-V-E-S kisses !!!!
