Well, I am getting excited. Planning to return to WW tomorrow night and believe me it is like planning a military maneouvre. Am going to get Jess to drop me as new as possible to meeting which is unfortunately in the middle of a shopping centre. Will wait, sitting somewhere, for her to park the car and come back to get me and then onwards to WW. Getting on the scales will be tricky but with a little help I should be able to manage it if someone will hold my crutches while I balance.
A few peoples posts have mentioned books by A.J. Rochester and I looked up her web site and they do look interesting if a slightly scarey account of her life. Found that the local library has a copy of two of her books and have reserved them. Really appreciate alll the new things I find out in everyones posts.
(Black cockatoos are flying over at the moment - isnt that a mournfal cry.)
Jess and I have decided to learn French in Term 2. We cant do it in Term 1 as she will be away on holidays for 2 weeks and didnt want to pay for lessons she couldnt use so looks like Term 2. If it eventuates, it will be good to have someone to practise with.
Have been busy lately getting everything organised for this year. Our rugby tickets for the Waratahs have arrived and the dates have been duly entered in my diary. I have booked my tickets for the Bell Shakespeare's two performances this year - Romeo and Juliet in June/July and The Tempest in September/October. Because I go by myself (took Mark once - never again) am going to a matinee and for the first time am going to go on a Wednesday rather than my usual Saturday as I can go in the school holidays. Will book myself in for Tai Chi tomorrow, lessons start on 11 February.
Have decided that when I am up and around again and return to the gym, I will probably hire a personal trainer to get me going again. Have to ring the gym today and find out what costs are involved and minimum time I can do this. One of Jess's friends is a PT at my gym so I will probably ask for her. It depends on the cost though.
Today is cool and lovely (except the cricket is late again starting). Have just about finished January BIG crosswords and puzzles that have to be posted. My sister who has just given up work doesnt have the internet at home so I have been able to supply her with some answers that she couldnt find in her reference books. I love google.
Im home alone today - Mark has gone to work, Gareth's shoulder is better and he too has returned to work and Jess and her friends have driven to Anna Bay for the day to visit another friend who is on holidays there.
Hope everyone is looking forward to 2006 as much as I am.
