Good and Bad

So much for trying to be good over the weekend. I know I'm not alone in this - when confronted with food I eat, when stressed I eat, when drinking alcohol I eat, when unhappy I eat, when bored I all get the picture. I think I may have had one or at the most two days since I last posted when I can say I stayed within the points. Bugger!!! My fault completely. Oh well Im have to start again.

Good news - aircast is off foot. Ankle is still sore and I think my calf muscle has wasted (apparently only takes two weeks) but doctor says break has healed well and I can start walking, swimming, cycling again. But start slowly and build up to it. I think I have forgotten how to walk and stairs are giving me a bit of a problem but I will try. Might even go swimming this Sunday.

Only my little finger is still in a splint. Apparently healing quite well. Back to surgeon in 4 weeks for another xray and evaluation. Seem to have forgotten how to type and my writing looks like a 5 year old but these too can be relearnt. I am mobile again and can drive myself.

DD graduated on Tuesday. I dont think I could have been any prouder and when the 799 marched onto the parade ground I got all teary. I know I wasnt the only one. Her graduation photos are beautiful. She has started work already and tonight is her first night shift.

DS sounds like he is having a ball in Thailand. I think a lot of alcohol is involved. Will be glad when he is home again. Im such a mother!

First week back at work and everything seems to be going well. Better than I expected. Everyone will be away next week at conference so I am looking forward to the peace and quiet to get some of those things I keep putting off done.

Hope you all had a better week than me food wise and your weekends are relaxing.


  1. Yaaay for cast coming off.. Now make sure to take it easy so that the muscle can regain it's strength and help you exercise for the next 20 odd years... Don't Rush!! (why do I feel like I want to say young lady after that LOL)

    It's good that you are 'such a mother'. I think we will be no matter how old our children are. And with the state of the world now I think it is normal.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend, and congratulations to your DD..

  2. Congratulations on DD's achievements - I can only imagine how proud you must have felt.
    Good news re the cast coming off - like M said - take it slowly and don't try to rush doing everything.
    I hear what you are saying about eating being a source of comfort - no matter what it is we are feeling - maybe try to find something else to do instead of eating if you can.
    Have a great weekend and enjoy the start of Super 14.
    Take care

  3. How exciting that the cast has come off!!!
    Sounds like your kids are doing great!!

  4. Isn't it wonderful to revel in your children's achievements - sometimes you just feel you could burst!!

    Hope you're finding it a bit easier to stay on track this week.
    Take care
