2nd Day of the year
AC
We went round to Ken & Belle's. On the way I saw lots of people out jogging and power walking and stuff. Obviously made New Year's resolutions about being fit. I wonder how long it will last. It was just starting to pour with rain as we were driving so I think most of them would have given up pretty quickly.  When we got to Ken & Belle's it was bucketing down. No good for a BBQ but luckily they have a big George Foreman grill (or something similar) and so they cooked up the meat on that. There were lots of yummy salads and things that people had brought too. As usual I ate ALL DAY! 

There were quite a few people there and it was a lovely afternoon with everyone just eating and chatting and having a laugh. Belle was playing daggy old 70s and 80s songs and trying to get us to guess the song and artist. I'm good at those type of things. Ken's brother Jeff (who I went to uni with) came later in the day with his longterm girlfriend Tina and we found out they just got engaged 3 days ago which was quite exciting! We were there until quite late and then basically came home to bed.

After all the rain yesterday we woke to find that the cracks in the top of the walls in the bathroom were leaking. This was extremely annoying as my almost brand new box of tissues had turned into a giant lump of paper mache. Also it was going to need a lot of clean up work. On the plus side though it reminded us that moving out of here is a really good idea!  Also it forced me to clean out all the bathroom cabinets and get stuff sorted. This means I am now a step ahead for moving house. Me doing that also then inspired Trent to go into the other room and start sorting through the books ready for moving.

We then had bags of old books, old jewelery, little knick knacks and stuff. So we took them all down to one of those charity bins. Now we are helping a good cause and also making it easier for ourselves to pack. Trent also took a bunch of his old PC games down to Game Traders and got a voucher so he can buy himself a new game when one comes along that he wants.  We also did the grocery shopping while we were out and tried to buy lots of healthy food. Although I then came home and ate a stack of Jaffa Cakes which a mate of mine sent me from England (since we can't get them in Australia) Oops!  I feel like I've just been eating non-stop since before Christmas!  Did some more washing and finished cleaning the bathroom and all that stuff. Phew! Now trying to take a bit of a time-out. I can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow. 

Anyway, will try to come back later this evening and post some photos

With all this housework you're doing you'll burn off those jaffa cakes with no worries.(Might i tell you my controversial weight thought?-actually might even express it in my journal at some point for fun-i know that people are always told to exercise for health/weight reasons or whatever-i think that if a person can't regulate their weight simply by what they put in their mouth they are in BIG trouble-literally.If i had to rely on EXERCISE(whatever that is) to regulate weight would be as big as a barn.The weight secret is-don't put so much food in your gob.haha.)

I've only ever made one serious attempt to lose weight. I made changes to my diet and did excercise as well. Admitedly it was not MUCH excercise compared to most people - but since I usually do ZERO excercise, any little bit seemed to help.  Anyway it worked and I lost about 10-12kgs. But over the past couple of years I've gradually slipped back into my bad eating habits again and am also back to doing no excercise at all.  Will try and start getting back into the better habits again though.
