My Progress

Thursday, January 1, 2009

Woohoo, the first day of the year, and I've only got 1 1/2 hours left of it!

We went to a book sale today. The girls got bored, really, really quickly, so we didn't stay that long. I picked up a few titles, nothing spectacular, but I couldn't really wander and go through the boxed of individual titles. There was an icecream truck, so of course the girls wanted one. I was watching him. It was going to cost $4 for what 3yo wanted and he was putting in less icecream than Mcdonalds would put in their 50c cone! My Scottish blood wouldn't pay it. We found a Hungry Jacks and the girls had a 50c cone! It didn't have choc top or sprinkles, but the girls loved it, then got to play in the playground.

It was about this point that I realised I'd left my phone at home. I tell Ken and he replies "yeah, I left mine at home too! AAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Dstepd is coming home today and she's probably called a million times to find out where we are!!
We decided the best thing to do would be to head straight to Dstepd's Mum's place to pick her up and apologise for not answering their calls!! (Turns out there was only 3!) They weren't too stressed. Dstepd was actually a bit disappointed because she thought she would score another night at Mum's.

I had a lovely NYE! Went out to dinner with 2 lovely friends. We chatted and laughed all evening! I love catching up with GrannyJ. And Katt, of course, but we chat heaps!! :-)
I was home before midnight and didn't see a single booze bus, but that's ok.

It's the first day of 2009. I guess it's resolution time! 2009 is going to be focused on exercise. I've had a chat to my fitness assessor at the gym and he's going to increase my workouts to include a cardio interval training, as well as some Ab work. My plan is to get to one of my Gyms once a day. I know this wont happen for the whole 365 days, but I'm going to do my best to get there.

It's after 11 now. I really need to get to bed, but I have to put the loungeroom back together after vacuuming and mopping.

Then I might get some sleep.


  1. Ooohhh... a book sale... :o) Sounds like you had a great start to the year. Enjoy the extra exercise. That is my focus for the year too. We WILL get there this year Ness! :o)

  2. HJ's do sell choc tops they are a $1 and yum.

    Where was the book sale, I love to go and have a look.

    Glad you enjoyed NYE, it was fun.
