Time ???

Where has the time gone to - it's nearly a week since I posted but it feels like it was only a couple of days ago !!!

Thursday I did a massive walk having eating a kid's size gelato and two sticks of chocolate liquorice the day before. This left me with a massive blister on my little toe - almost the same size as my toe so Friday was my take it easy day. I still managed to get over 8000 steps for the day without actually going on a walk so that was good.

Saturday saw A and I head off to Brisbane for our 'night on the town' (courtesy of his boss' who gave us all of this for Christmas) - we went and saw the show Candy Man on Saturday afternoon, then a stroll along South Bank before hitting Ahmets Turkish restaurant for dinner - what a lovely evening it was - we had never had Turkish food before and thoroughly enjoyed what we had. Another walk along South Bank and a trip on the City Cat up to UQ and back saw his head to our hotel for the night. A sumptuous hotel buffet breakfast was on the cards in the morning and then we left and took in some markets on the way home. We got home at about lunch time, spent a couple of hours putting a new aerial in K's car and then the rest of the afternoon in the pool before watching the cricket - thank goodness we managed to pull a win out of that game !!! Mind you we didn't see the end as we decided to go for a walk - it was so cool - it was just lovely.

Needless to say the Turkish meal and the hotel breakfast did nothing to help my weight loss endeavours but I have been walking again this week and went to my second spin class this morning - definitely fared better today than I did last week when I nearly managed to fall off a stationary bike !!!!

I have just been for a walk and am about to jump into the pool for a swim. Then it was be a minute or two ('cos that is all I can manage) of skipping before hitting the showers and then the blood bank (wonder if I will see Edward Cullen there ?????)

On the work front it is still really quiet - I did have an interview last week but haven't heard anything back from them as yet. All I can do is try to stay as positive as possible as A always says "Good things come to those who wait" - I do think he is just trying to make me feel better and don't think he actually believes that !!!!!

Have a great day and take care !

Thought for the day : Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.

Turkish food is devine...mmmm yum!

Don't beat yourself up over your weekend, it's not like it happens every weekend, and look at all the walking you got in!

Fingers crossed about the interview. Remember 'no news can be good news'! Unemployment must be getting quite bad there! You seem to have qualifications but finding it hard.

Love Turkish food:-)

I've just started reading the Twiglight books, i'm about half way through the first one, not sure what I think about it yet.
Sounds like you're keeping fairly positive, and I agree with A - fate exists and your perfect job will come along - it's hard to be patient though isn't it?
