    Good for you, you sound real motivated on the exercise after your holiday. I had a good walk today, and planning a tramp tomorrow, hopefully it won't be toooooo wet a day but we'll go anyway.

    lovely couple of days. DH and DS could manage it, but i got the nasty cold that was going around, and I'm being careful with myself. Lots and lots of rest.

    DS was sweet today. He wanted a sandwich (a special treat), and we couldn't find one at the supermarket, so I got him a frozen pizza. He was so excited. It's amazing how something so simple can make a kid happy. It was pretty special to share a pizza with him. and that's funny. definitely in that 20%, but fun nonetheless.

    no daffies here yet. i went for a walk but got captured by aliens lol it ended up being a slow walk. but it was fun. on the subject of daffies, there is that place where the old brewery was in lawrence which has acres of old daffodils. we stopped and had a look when we went skiing last year. totally unreal. well worth a visit if you are in the area.

    Hi hi, everyone. Fighting the lethargy that invariably hits during our hot summer. However, I read today that Death Valley had record tying and breaking temps for June of 54.4C !!! Which means that I'm a wimp, since we're nowhere near that hot (thank non-specified deity).

    Good to see everyone enjoying winter - I'll live vicariously through you all.

    Sea, lovely photos (the daffodil brewery).

    Hey Gwamma! (waving furiously)

    Yup, all doing well. First and Fourth are getting packed to go to a week-long, stay-over horse camp, and they cannot wait. I was thinking of you today as well - see, we here at Crabbcakes Manor came into possession of a wonderful wood trivet, made of a NZ wood species and carved to resemble a fern, and it held up a biiiiig 'ole hot baking dish of smoked sausage tonight.

    Today is going well. Had to get car repairs. We were afraid it would be the gasket, but no. Luckily, a small (inexpensive) repair, and we're good to go. Thank goodness!

    Big staff meeting tonight; no clue who is coming.

    Hey folks :-)

    Trucking along up here, being driven bananas by the housing market. Every time we find a place it either gets snapped up by a cash buyer or we get just pipped to the postwith getting an offer in.

    Looking at another place this weekend and also looking like we have someone interested in buying our place too, so touch wood we'll be putting in an offer on Monday.

    So I've been busy doing touch up painting and laying carpets to tidy our place up, meaning my "gym" (spare room and hall way where I do pullups) have been full of clutter and I haven't really done any training for weeks.
    If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.

    What are the prices like in your neck of the woods LL ?????
    !!!
    Petrol is super cheap here, about $20 to fill the average car! Eating out is very cheap too, we had top grade sushi the other night for our family of four plus one extra kid and it cost $65 (i had a big sashimi platter). Of course no booze to make the bill higher. Supermarket food varies because its all imported, but the local market has very cheap produce. Got four mangoes for $5 this week, 1 kg of tomatoes for $1.50. I've also located a shop within walking distance of our house that sells eggs from their own chickens, not exactly free range but far from battery farmed at least and no food miles. Also they sell fresh cooked onion Baji and pakora, 30 c each. I did get a BBQ mackerel from a street vendor for $6, that was a nice lunch.

    Still no Internet at our new house. Boooo!
