My plan

This is my plan for the next couple of months.

I am doing the bike.exercise as much as I can for the next few weeks, until I am on leave from work, then I am going to get up at 5am and exercise for 40 minutes and jump into the shower.  I will then do another workout at some point in the day – lunch or early afternoon – and indeed perhaps both….

I am off work for a month, what I am hoping is that in that month I get used to getting up early and I start forming a habit – once I start back at work it will therefore hopefully be easier to stay in habit….

That is my hope….we shall see.

I have not heard back from the second job at woodend or the one in Kyneton I applied for.  I don’t want to follow up as I can’t handle being rejected….

Have a unnamed chest infection :/

Doc has put me on some druggies which need to be taken on an empty stomach…gave me a stern staring at when i said I had been feeling this way all week…you know the one… “Why didn’t you get here sooner” look…oops….

I also went to the Post office today to pick up a passport application form.  Going to send that in a few days, to get me a new identity 😀  Asked at the chemist if I could get passport photos done there and they advised they don’t do them anymore because the post office was so strict on them, they do them now.

So will fill out the form, get all the paperwork together and head back down there – maybe today – not sure…..will see if I feel up to it…I did just remember that I forgot to get me some more cough mixture…(or as I like to call it – TORTURE).  I hate the stuff hubby is making me take, but it works…I think he just likes seeing me squirm!!  Senegar and ammonia or something….oh god it makes me want to hurl just thinking about it 🙂  Anyway, have to go back down the street and get some asap, I am sick of coughing to be honest.  grumble grumble grumble.

Onto other things though, finally managed to corner the man and find out about our goals etc…..let’s just say he doesn’t think like I do, we may both me taurean and want stability, but I think he is more like a air sign, just blowing in the breeze…I wonder what his rising is…anyway…sorry off track….basically he has given me full blown decision making authority regarding us saving money and doing the things we want.  Essentially he doesn’t think more than a few months (maybe) ahead – and I can understand why given the circumstances of his upbringing and not thinking he would ever be in a position to have a future he needed to be thinking of.

So we do want the same things, but we have just been living month to month basically and now I know why we can start to change that.  We both are to blame for that and I am not upset about it, just aware now of what has to change.  So whilst we do want the same things I am going to have to be the one that pushes it and changes the current state.

I am not one of these people that wants to save money just to have money, I certainly don’t want to die with money stashed away like some savings junkie, but I would like to be able to save money, spend it on whatever I was saving it for then start again.  Ultimately my plan is to have a term deposit just clocking over with funds separate to the actual savings….that’s in about 8 years – ultimate goal..yeah baby, that way once we retire we do have a constant income stream almost – if we have managed to build the term deposit up enough 🙂

For the interim, I get to put money aside each fortnight and then just tell hubby how much we have leftover for spending….easy done 🙂 Love it…then once we have enough for whatever the goal is we organise it.  For example, last night I was trying to convince the hubby we should go away early next year – Jan – Mar for a quick 8 day holiday, you know somewhere nice and relaxed like Hawaii…the airfares to get there are so cheap and hotels really aren’t that badly priced – We could do it for about $6000 in total and I don’t think that is horrific, shame neither of us actually qualify as students though…then we could get even cheaper deals.  maybe I could get it cheaper, but like i said I was only looking very quickly whilst waiting for my uni sites to load etc…

The issue with going overseas is still that I have to lose weight before I want to even consider it.  I want to be able to go hiking, sit in an aeroplane, feel comfortable doing the beach thing etc.  Just as an example there is a dormant volcano on one of the islands – maui maybe??  is that right?  anyway you get to hike up there and then ride a bike back down, and I want to be able to do that.  I am not saying I have to be perfect weight range, but I do want to know I am capable of doing that – and currently there is no way!

Yeah even though I am studying a full time load, I am not considered a student as I am not attending a university and I don’t get a student card from an actual uni.  It’s stupid and I think should be re-evaluated by whichever powers determine that, but honestly it is sometimes just not worth fighting 😀

Anyway I am going to try and locate my paperwork and fill out my passport form.  Chat to you all later.




Driving to Sydney!!!!!


We have arrived in the town I grew up in….SYDNEY!!!!! Yes I have missed you and I am so glad we finally arrived. Yass was he’ll on earth and caused us to lose just over an hour, mental note to self – stop at goulburn or the Tucker box next time….avoid yass!!!

We stuck the Tom Tom on and darth guided us to the wonderfully awesome kogarah footy field. We caught up with an old friend and her partner for dinner which was beautiful!! She looks so happy and vibrant. I am so very happy for her.

The game was awesome, freezing cold on the hill, but I enjoyed myself immensely. I scored a new jumper out of it, which I plan to wear everyday for the next three years! Bought hubby a rain coat as well which he has been wanting for a while. Dragons gear of course!!

Sadly the dragons ruined their 10 game winning streak and we lost the game. Thankfully hubby and I left the game midway through he last half as we did. Not want to get stuck amidst the traffic leaving the oval….gridlock after driving from Melbourne was not something we were willing to deal with.

We then headed to our friends place, she had offered her place even if she was not home for the weekend. I cannot express how grateful we were for the offer and we are going to have to find her a lovely gift as repayment.

Anyway she has a very nice place!! I want it 🙂 Hubby and I were staying in the kids room and basically lasted long enough to get the beds sorted before we crashed. Prety sure we didn’t even bring the suitcase inside. I just slept in my clothes I was that wrecked!!

All in all I am glad we made it. Photos will be incoming later, however I am typing these up on the iPad and I can’t get images from my phone to the iPad easily, so I will do one big post later with everything!
