I have finished my cross stitching

Yes I have finally finished it and boy wasnt my DH glad his words were " I get my wife back now" ha ha

I am very pleased how it has turned out I only have to frame it now and that is the hard part lol I keep forgetting to take it with me when I go to the shops!
Nothing else has really been happening my Dh has started making holes in the ground for the new "Taj Mahal" of Cubby houses, so when that starts I will keep you updated.

Happy Mothers Day

What a lovely way to start the day by the kids telling me that I have to stay in bed while they make me brekky which is really hard to involve six kids in doing this lol. But it was really nice and felt strange to be staying bed while the kids look after me lol.

I was telling my DH that this time last year we were on our honeymoon in Sydney wow!

I got some new digital scales which is what I asked for and they are great so we had to weigh everyone lol and it was nice to throw the old ones away they are that old they still have the weight in stones lol.

I am going really well with my cross stitching. Here is the latest photo

We also had our first anniversary party last weekend and had a group of friends over for a BBQ which was great and I gave my DH his present proudly created for me by Rick of and he loved it and is going to put on the wall near the pool table and his bar lol ( "that's going straight to the pool room").

Its hard to believe that it has been only one year it feels a lot longer than that and I have never been happier.

Im still here

Yes I know I haven't Blogged for such a long time but I have been really busy.

OK lets go back three weeks to me being all excited that in two days time I will be going on a holiday to Melbourne to catch up with all my friends and family that I haven't seen for two years almost.

My dh and I had driven to Newcastle for the day on our own and seen this cathedral that looked like a castle on a hill, it was beautiful and the best bit was you could climb the tower and check out the view which only cost us $3 each, so up we go.

Well let me tell you I am glad I lost weight before doing this because the staircase was so little and dark and like the old towers from the movies where it just winds up and up lol. But we made it and it was extremely worth it.

See isn't the view spectacular!

So the fight went well and mum and dad were there to meet me and take me back to their house.

I spent as much time as possible with my niece and nephew and my sil which was lovely. I got to see all my close friends and my sil took my to dfo in Essendon and we scored some real bargains.

It was nice to have time away from the family but I missed them terribly and I think next time it will have to be all of us that go on a holiday together.

Oh that's right another thing is when I got home we had a really heavy hail storm which hit quickly and then almost two whole weeks of rain we had over 18 inches of rain all during the school holidays, so needless to say I am over the rain but it hasn't rained in 6 days ( the kids went back to school )

I started cross stitching on the Friday before I left Melbourne as I was bored lol ( I know I don't get a chance to get bored at home) and here is my progress the first photo is when I first got home and the other is from a couple of nights ago. ( Ive been home three weeks ). Blogger wont let me load the other photo in this post so you will have to wait till the next post lol.

Also we all went to Port Maquarie last Saturday and the boys all went to see crusty demons and us girls got to hang out together so we went to the beach and then to the park which was fantastic.

Weightloss to date 12 kilos woo hoo..........

Well its been four weeks dieting!!!

OK four weeks on and I have lost a total of 5.9 kilos, which I am really pleased about . I have been eating alot healthier I still have the chocolate cravings but have manged to get away with eatin a little chocolate in moderation. My Dh has bought me a trewadmill that I have been wanting for ages and I cant wait to get it then I will be able to walk all the time lol, I wonder if I can help with homework while walking? Something to try no doubt lol.

Other news I have a new car WOO HOO.

It is a Mitsubishi Delica and its a four wheel drive imported from Japan so I have no clue what all the writing in the car says lol and we have a GPS but its in Japanese lol so I dont think we will be using that in a hurry. It is so nice to drive though very comfortable and you are sitting really high up. Yes it seats 8.
