Im just loving my weekends now....I have so much time to spend with the guys and our relationship is sooo much better than when Mom was working all the time. Being really strict with myself and only working Mon-Fri 10 - 2 is so much better for everyone in the house!
Friday night kicked off with Hubs and I settling the house of boys we had off to sleep....sleepovers are such fun but the cupboards sure take a bashing!24 bags of crisps and 4 litres of Coke gone in the blink of an eye....and thats not mentioning the huge supper of M&S spicy platter and two bluberry pies they munched their way through!
Hubs bought home a DVD from one of the lads with strict instruction that the guys must not see it at all....errmmm no it wasnt of the blue variety LOL!
It has to be quite possibly the scariest film I have ever seen. Ive never watched a film before and been really really scared...my heart was pounding and at one point I felt physically sick. I guess it affected me so badly because its based upon a real story and I know people who have had lucky escapes when backpacking. Did you know 30,000 people a year go missing in OZ...90% are found safe and well within the first month...the other 10% are almost never found...well the film gave one explanation as to why so many back packers disappear. Most of the guys around here go off backpacking once the season ends and of course OZ, NZ and Bali are the fav locations just cus the surf is so good...Ive heard tales of people going missing, others have told us of their encounters with weird folk....I guess Hubs and I have been lucky when we have headed off the beaten track cus we have only ever met nice peeps.
My usual Saturday morning stroll on the beach was wonderful....such a bright blue sky.
I feel so healthy and invigorated when I have a stroll along the beach. Ive been walking from Putsborough to Woolacoombe and back every day.
It takes me a wee while cus Im hobbling along with this manky old leg of mine. I have to stop every now and then for a ickle rest but Im addicted to it now. I need my morning 5 mile walk or else I feel grouchy. All the walking combined with my new diet has worked and Ive lost 7lb this week :):)
7lb weightloss meant I could treat myself to a new Troll bead for my bracelet...off to town for Hubs and I:)I chose my bead and then Hubs bought me another, plus a few spacers from my friend who is a silversmith :)
I went off to the cinema on Saturday night to go see Rocky Bilboa....WOW! What a film. I dont really like the Rocky films but this one really got me going. I was bouncing around in my seat during the fight scene. I really wanted the old man to win. Slys got one hell of a fit bod for a man his age....shame about his face...he's starting to look a little too much like his mother!
And finally a piccie of the swap parcel I received this week from Weird Cat....thanks hun...love the canvas.
Sunday night is nearly here...booo hiss....weekends are just too short.
