We heard some very exciting news this week, Spotlight is to open in our town in a couple of months. I’m very excited, but the children were not so thrilled when I told them the news;) Years ago when I sewed more, I always used to pop into the store whenever we visited our neighbouring City. It got to the point that when the car turned towards the carpark a howl would emit from the backseat, “No!! Not Spotlight!! No!!!”
Actually we still have howls of “No!” emitting from the back, but these days it is when we turn into the Bunnings carpark. PC seems to disappear into the bowels of Bunnings for hours! I confess I add to those “No’s!” Last week PC took Bass (3) to Bunnings with him, apparently he had to drag Bass into the store as he was wailing, “Not Bunnin’s, I don’t want to go to Bunnin’s”
Well it has been a month since I began working towards losing weight. My goal was to lose 10kg (22lbs), to that end I eliminated sugar, grains and white potatoes from my diet, though admittedly I’ve occasionally eaten potatoes and a small amount of grains. This approach is very effective, in four weeks I’ve lost 4.7kg (10.36lbs)! Time now to also add exercise to the regime, in particular focusing on tummy tightening. Any great ‘must do’ exercises to recommend for tightening the tum?
What is the most effective method to remove clothing dyes that have bleed onto whites? I have a white shirt that is now sporting some pink dots, what to do?
Cindy sadly announced this week that she is closing down her blog, not only no longer writing but taking her blog down within the week:( She has written some real gems over the past 8 years and I wanted to copy a few posts for their wisdom. The thought of copying and pasting into Word exhausted me but a little research revealed my solution, all I needed was to install an Evernote web clipper. Evernote web clipper, ah how I love thee:)
For several weeks now I’ve been reading The Hobbit to Jelly Bean(10), Jack Jack (8) and Jem (5), we’re nearly finished. I originally read it to Anna Maria, Carpenter and Einstein years ago, then Carpenter read it to Michelangelo and Princess, hence why this is only my second ‘go around’ reading The Hobbit to our children. It’s been a long time, and as before it takes me a while to ‘get into it’, the chapters are so long, but then I fall under Tolkien’s spell. Sorry Sarah but I have to disagree with you here;)
Countdown now, only three more games until the soccer season is finished!:) Though I have to admit being rather spoilt the last couple of months, with more drivers in the house I’ve been able to stay home for a few trainings and games.
