Oh well, I've made my bed, I better lie in it.......mmmmm that would be nice to curl up in my bed and just sit the next dance out.
Still thinking very positive though, "I am learning from this" and more importantly I'm doing it without touching a drop of alchole! Old Kat would have hit the bottle and hit it hard by now. Don't get me wrong it would be very temping, but I know I'll be a better person if I don't crawl into the bottle again.
Telling you how it is
I believe I'll continue this conversation latter, as I've been "too nice" and agreed to extend my work days well over my resignation date.

This is the last year of our 3 year trial, we will have yet another referendum on the subject mid next year. Honestly I don't know why they are going to ask us, it seams that every time we have one of these things they just do the opposite, be it daylight savings or extended trading hours. This little munchkin will be saying no more to daylight savings in WA. The only good reason to have it would be so I want get harassed so early by Sam (the cat) demanding breakfast.
My second time warp shift is to change my weigh in day to Sunday, for a couple of reasons, Sundays I'm less rushed, and then I can mooch into Fremantle and have sushi. (yum yum)
I lost a respectable 800g over the last 6 days. Not to shabby, they say your body goes into shock and is more stubborn to give you fat away, something to do with going into "survival mode" Your body thinks that you have now landed yourself onto the set of an extremely over dun TV show. That is why they say starvation diets don't work.
BEWARE healthy food may not necessarily help you loose weight! The suspects in question are rice cakes, they are better for you than a packet of crisps for sure, but rice will bloat you. Which brings me onto another quote to finish on.....Everything in moderation, including moderation.

Yesterday's incident was a simple rescue, the spider was no bigger then my thumb nail and was hanging down from the ceiling in the middle of the room. The most difficult bit was trying to find a container to catch it in. Once secured in the box, I took it outside and deposited my arachnid friend on a nearby tree.
The fist spider I dealt with was a much bigger beasty ( about the size of my palm ) Not only did this rescue require a box but a step ladder to reach him on, as the bugger had relocated to the ceiling while we were trying to find a container. I was not involved with the release of this creature, as someone had summoned security to undertake the capture. On my way out of the building with my prized catch I met the security guy, it was him who escorted this intruder out of the building. I can only hope he did the right thing by releasing "Cyril Herbert the spider" (I just had to name him) into the near by park.
I felt quite chuffed with both of my rescues. They saying must be true then. You can take the girl out of the country, but not the country out of the girl.

As you may be aware this was my first week back on the diet treadmill, I am pleased to say that I lost a respectable 2.8kg, not to shabby for the first 7 days. I like doing spring/summer diets not only because of the salads but I can at lest get the standard 8 glasses of water in. Unfortunately cups of coffee do not count as water intake :( I've also managed so far to stay away from the fizzy drinks!
However the surprise of the week happened on Friday night. Being a Friday I usually partake in the consumption of about 3 pints of the amber fluid and be what I call "nicely done", not wanting to tempt myself into drinking to much, I purchased a meer 2 stubbies. Now hear's the scary bit, I was struggling to knock off one bottle, and didn't feel like the other one. (Which is still sitting in the fridge as I type) Hold me I'm frightened!
While the good times last I'll enjoy the ride, but diets are a lot like roller coasters I think.

Other things she noted were right on the ball, like picking that I had an operation within the last year and that I’m a hard worker.
One thing that came out from this encounter that I felt would never occur would be the introduction of a new canine member to my family. The only thing I could think of was “I don’t particularly want a dog.”
Don't get me wrong, I do like the beasts, it's just that I don't have the time to commit to a fleabag plus I already having two cats.
Thinking nothing more of it, I went on with my life. So guess what I got on the weekend. Yep a pooch, but not just any K9, this one is house trained and more importantly has an off button!
I had actually been thinking about purchasing one for a few months, but could not find any in the shops, or I was lacking the funds to purchase him.
When telling my colleagues at work what I had purchased, it was pointed out that the palm reading lady said I would get a dog. So that must have been the vibes she was picking up. Let’s hope the man of my dreams she said I would eventually meet in about a year’s time will not turn out the same way. ;)

This one is just to let you know I'm still alive and continuing to kick butt.
Is it possible to hit a mid life crisses before you hit mid life?
and my favourate quote at the moment is...
"I live in my own little world, but that is ok....they know me here"
