    I'm going through one of my, um, ah, not sure what to call it. Every few years I feel the urge to do something different. It could be my job, where I live, my relationship, anything really. I get really impatient with sameness,
    So, consequently I feel rather hemmed in and stuck and believe me, this is not a good way for me to feel, I'm likely to do something impulsive and stupid when I feel trapped. I will try hard not to do that of course, but I know me.
    *nod*

    While physically I have strong roots to one place, I totally get the "GAH! I NEED CHANGE!" feeling. (Thus the current bout of body mods- septum, new hair and fangs all in one month.) Sometimes you just have to break out of the usual and do something different.

    I nod at your want for GREEN. Green is lush and beautiful and abundant. I'm totally with you on that and would definitely go for planning to be there when you're ready for it. Until then, maybe find a safe, smaller impulse to satisfy?

    I don't know that feeling...

    I live within 10 minutes of where I grew up, within 10 minutes of where both of my parents grew up, within 10 minutes of where my husband and his father grew up...my kids go to the same high school that my parents went to...

    Yeah, I definitely need to do that. Pete keeps saying, finish your degree, get your grad program done and the world is your oyster. He's right of course, nursing can take you anywhere. Patience is my problem of course. Maybe, I'll go get another tattoo.

    My family in the UK are like that. They all live within 15 miles of where the family has lived for about 5-6 generations. We really broke the mold!

    Oh, I don't know about kind, but thanks. It seems to me to be everyone's responsibility to ensure that the next generation is literate.


    I have a stomach bug I think, I've had diarrhoea for 2 days now and I feel crappy. I nearly threw up in the middle of the night last night.
    I'm going to fast today to try and flush it out.

    Eats yesterday:
    I didn't really eat much because of afore-mentioned bug. Some coffee, a couple of pork rinds, a couple of slices of gluten-free pizza. That was it.

    Exercise:
    Extra rest day declared due to bowel troubles and DOMS that won't go away.


    That's all today, I got nothing.

    Thanks Ellie

    It's 3pm and I've had nothing except 2 coffees (one caffeinated, one decaf) and fingers crossed, I'm feeling better. I'm feeling a bit hungry but I think I'll stay off the food for a while longer.

    It's a shame as Pete was going to take me out to our favourite Indian restaurant tonight. I think that would be a very bad idea right now though.

    Well, I'm all better I think. Although I still don't feel hungry. I've been fasting now for about 40 hours with the exception of coconut cream in 2 cups of coffee. Shouldn't I be hungry by now??

    It a gorgeous day here today. A balmy 29*C with a lovely fresh breeze. I think Pete and I are going to head to the local National Park with a rug and a book, have a little hike around and then laze on the grass. Our kids are with our respective ex's today so it's just the two of us.... very relaxing.

    Eats:
    B: Coffee
    L: Coffee
    D: nothing

    I drank lots and lots of water throughout the day and I think the bug has been flushed. I guess only eating solid food will tell for sure.

    Hi Em - I'm Jacquie, from NZ, a nurse researcher and lecturer at U of Auckland, although I live just south of Hamilton. I was reading about your lusting after Queenstown - I used to live in Dunedin, so know a few people in Queenstown. It's totally beautiful in terms of scenery, but not very green and kind of weird in terms of community. If I won lotto, I'd choose between central Otago and northland where my tribe is from.

    Nice to meet you!!
