Wodonga drive!

We are heading to Wodonga today for our best friends 30th birthday!!

We are about 40 minutes away at the moment and hubby just took over the driving as I was getting tired…

Should be a good night; BBQ and drinkies 🙂 I have been saving money since about October to cover the petrol costs….lol but we did it in the end!

I might write more later but it will depend in my availability 🙂

Happy Birthday Hubby

Today we are having a gathering of about 7 people to celebrate hubby’s 30th.  He doesn’t seem all too stressed about aging, but I think it is a milestone and so really pushed that he have some people over 😀

I have made my grasshopper pie, bought some meat for the BBQ and will make a salad.  We have some nibbles as well and I will be unable to drink 😦  However I will be watching everyone else get sloshed and jolly and wishing I was joining them.  I was really looking forward to getting a little tipsy tonight.  Bah humbug is all I have to say 🙂

We will have Eurovision on in the background as it is the second semi final tonight and the grand final tomorrow night. ❤ my eurovision!!!!!  ONE YEAR I WILL GET TO A LIVE SHOW!!!

I have to go and finish the dishes and clean up in the computer room a little more, but otherwise everything is clean and tidy.

Have a great day my love, I hope this year is awesome for you and that we reach some of our goals and that you are happier this year than the last year.  I love you so much and I am thankful that we have shared 10 years together and that we have so many more to share.

surgery

Going into the Eye and Ear hospital tomorrow morning for my ear surgery.  I was on the waiting list and finally got advised last week I would be admitted on my husband’s birthday and then not released until the next day.

I am very sad about this.  It is my husband’s 30th birthday, a big one in my eyes, and I am going to miss the entire thing, and not only that I have to inconvenience him by needing to be at the hospital by 7am.  My mum has offered her place for tonight and she will drop me in, however hubby wants me there on his birthday morning…even if it is only for a few moments 🙂

I am grateful I gave him his birthday presents before his day now, as I would not have been there to enjoy it anyway.  I got him a Yankee’s Jersey from New York – with Rivera’s name on the back (one of his favourite players) and since Easter when I gave it to him, I think I have seen him out of it once!!  I also bought him a subscription to a monthly whiskey club.  You get a whiskey a month to try out and there is no obligation to buy.  Check it out if you have any whiskey loving friends out there…. Singlemalt Club and the last present I bought him was an iPad2.  He even did a little happy dance when he got it, but he was so excited to finally have one.  He has been wanting one since the first ones came out and we just haven’t been able to afford it! So I got him a snap on cover and the free engraving on it as well.

So I think I did relatively well on the birthday present front for his 30th and I am kind of hoping that makes up for my absence on the actual day.

I am going to have all of next week off to recover and then hopefully all back to normal and no deafness….if it goes to plan, I will be able to hear in a weeks time!!!  YAYAYAYAYAY.  I am soooo damn excited at the prospect.  I have to head to the supermarket shortly and do the shopping for the week so I don’t have to go far whilst I am off to find food!

Happy Birthday :D

Every year I write a blog post on my birthday, have done so since 2003, and sometimes they are full of hope and life and excitment, other times they are filled with dread and despair.

This year is kind of just meh for me….the only real goal I have is to lose weight…this is going to be the year I put everything I have into it.  Every ounce of motivation, passion and hope.  I am funnelling it all into losing weight.

I don’t really feel as if I am having a birthday, perhaps I just don’t really care much about turning 33…am I 33 already?  Surely it is 32? oops, yup it is 32 😀  NICE…I added a year onto my age….that’s just WRONG!!!

I am going to be getting my bike L’s soon, as I still have a “want” to ride.  I want to lose enough weight that I can buy a nice bike and not feel huge on it and I want to be able to buy leathers that don’t make me look like the S & M version of the Stay puft Marshmallow man….All in good time of course 🙂

So to sum up my last year, I left MLC (finally), I started my degree (finally), we moved to Kyneton, we got back into our religious practices, my mother finally married the man of her dreams and got married, Hubby got some of the best birthday presents this year for his birthday, we bought a new VW and got rid of the troubled mini, we finally got rid of the old couch when it collpased, we have avoided getting any new credit cards, we have stayed on top of our bills (although no savings thanks to my pay cut), we started eating better (then kind of stopped), I lost 10kgs over Xmas with some hard work and training.

Of all these things, the only thing I am disappointed in is my lack of weight loss.  I wanted this last year to be the year when I could look back and admire my 70kg weight loss.  Looks like this will be that year instead, so I am going to push myself and ensure it happens this year!!  Next birthday I want to be able to brag and brag and brag!! 😀  Consider yourself warned.

I will be ensuring I update my weight loss/exercise blog – ponderosity.wordpress.com a fair bit more and I may add more than just my exercise for the night on there, such as PCOS weightloss challenge (which I missed this time round – so will start in August officially, and this week unofficially), food and other stuff.

Happy Birthday Onyxiia.

finally have time

 So, I finally have time to sit and update my blog, it has been a while and I probably won’t really say all that much, however I am so thankful I am finally in a house that has settles.  That was one of those horrible horrible things that I never ever want to have to deal with again 😀

Our commodore has finally karked it – it needs a service awfully badly, but with the house we just didn’t get it done, funny then how on the same DAY that we picked up our second car, it decides it can’t hack it anymore, thank you gods!  So I am booking it in for a service next weekend and my baby will be fixed!

My birthday has been and gone and I missed my usual birthday post, it just didn’t feel like the time to do so with so much going on.

D went to canberra for a Samhain ritual and was delayed getting home, so I spent my birthday alone on the computers and pottering around the house, and you know, it was a fucking awesome day.  I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was unable to get up to Sydney for my friends memorial, however my thoughts were with the guys who did attend and my wishes were sent to the Aether.

I have, since we moved in, been almost OCD about keeping the house clean, there is something to be said for having a home you love and are proud of, I just want to keep it looking nice.  I do have to buy a clothes drier at some point as we have so many frosts out here I am not sure getting clothes dry s going to work too well.  But I feel like I have been constantly cleaning, and I know that is because we have been home for 3 weeks straight so we do make mess, ie breakfast, lunch and dinner…then people dropping past etc…so it has been constantly cleaning I guess.  

I am adamant we are going to stay on top of the clothes washing as well, even so much as to do loads midweek if we have enough.

All in all, everything has been going well.  D and I are dreading going back to work, although he may have scored a new job, fingers crossed he finds out tomorrow, and I only have to hold on until mid August before I can seriously start looking for work to get out of my cuirrent job, I hate my company, hate is not even strong enough to describe the loathing all consuming anger I have with the people I work with…It is very hard to explain, but I nee to just stay calm for 4 months. 9 I am going to try my hardest on that front!)

My Dad and stepmum are coming up next weekend for lunch to the new house, so that is a little exciting, I get to cook for them for a change, it will be nice 😀

I have started another blog – a la Minxee – and it is all about food 🙂 Well my food to be exact, recipes I like, want to try and things I have baked etc….bakefest.wordpress.com  if you are interested people 😀  It’s not very exciting at the moment, as I have not really had a chance to do much yet with all the house stuff going on, but I expect it to be updated fairly regularly with new recipes etc.

Anway I have to be on a train at 5.18am, so I am going to log off and do my nightly things!  I will chat to you all later!
