I went away the weekend just gone with a friend and her daughter to visit a friend who lives near Mildura. We left Thursday afternoon and came back last night and I feel surprisingly ok seeing it was pretty exhausting. When the three of us get together we talk and analyse everything and seeing we had nearly three full days together we didn’t run out of things to talk about. Altogether there were five children ranging in age from nearly two to 11 years old and they all got on pretty well. There was a bit of refereeing between the two youngest ones. At one stage we were sitting outside, kids inside, and I went inside to do something and as I was coming back outside Jaycee Junior said, ‘Where are you going?’. I said, ‘Outside’. He then said, ‘To do some more talking?’. He summed it up very aptly I think as that’s what we did.
We probably would have all stayed in our pyjamas all day if we didn’t have to do anything but we were usually dressed by midday. It was also a weekend of eating and drinking what we wanted and on Saturday night I was literally lying on the floor holding my stomach after having eaten a good portion of a box of Pringles without really needing them. They were there is all. So this week, it’s back to the attempt at the low carb diet for me. I’ve stopped buying my iced coffee which has an obscene amount of sugar in it and I’m also trying to cut down or stop other things like pasta, rice, potatoes and cakes. I was doing quite well till last weekend but I knew it would be bad so I’ll just get back on track now.
