My house is like a zoo!

This house, its like a zoo
The mess, it is so not cool
I am spending my morning
Cleaning, and pruning
Doing dishes
Mopping, cleaning
All so that my house will be gleaming
I am hard at work
It sure aint a perk
Gotta eat now
and Stay full up, somehow!


What I am doing for my mom on mothers day this year

Mothers day here is on March 22nd. I’ve spent some time this morning thinking about what I will do for my mom on that day. I decided to book a spa day for me, my mom and my sister. So I rang a local hotel which has a spa and I talked to one of the staff about options. In the end I booked the day for all 3 of us. We’ll start off by having a treatment, we’re going to have a head to toe treatment, which includes massage, and oils, and other stuff, I wasnt sure of everything she was telling me as I’ve never had a spa treatment. But it all sounded great. The treatment lasts for 50 minutes. After the treatment we can go and use the hot tub and pool, which will be fantastic, I’ve never been in a hot tub before either. I am so looking forward to trying it out. After all that we go to the restaurant and have lunch, the girl said we can choose any main course from the lunch menu as part of our package. The whole thing was quite expensive, it cost 115 euro for each of us. So 345 euro in total for everything, I payed for us all, because I had the money and I wanted to treat my mom to something memorable and something really special with her girls. I hope she will enjoy it. I’m pretty sure she will though. I’m going to tell her later today when she gets home. I also rang a local florist, to ask about flowers for mothers day, and also to ask about delivery. I am planning on getting her some flowers, and am planning on having them delivered as a surprise to her house. I’m also planning on having chocolates and a balloon delivered with the flowers. I will do that nearer the time. She loves flowers, and I know she’ll really appreciate them. They arent cheap, but she’s so worth it. And since I have the money I will go all out. I normally wouldnt be able to do something so lavish but since I am able to this year I am going to run with it. I already told my sister about the spa day. We’re going for the spa day on April 5th. I am so excited. Will be sure to take lots of photos of the 3 of us together on the day. And when the flowers and balloon come I want to get pics of mom with them also. I think I’ll have them delivered on the friday, since mothers day is on the sunday. Making memories with my mom, thats what its all about. And while I can, I will do it.



it was so good. we went to a little restaurant in town. its called skuzies.
their food was amazing. i got a grilled chicken breast on a bun, with curried mayo, garlic mayo, bacon, and cheese. I also got fries with that. the fries were sooo good!
mom and my aunt both had dessert but I didnt have any. I was trying to not overindulge.
Mom got warm chicken salad for her main, and my aunt got chicken goujons and fries and a salad.
for their desserts mom had apple pie with custard and my aunt had pavlova.
after our meal we went and walked around town looking in some of the shops. mom was trying to look for confirmation dresses for my niece, since mom and my sister are taking her shopping on saturday to see if she can get her dress for her confirmation in march.
It was a lovely day.

Something nice

My aunt called my mom and said she has a voucher for a nice restaurant that she got for christmas.

She wants to take mom and me out to lunch, she said we’ve been good to her, bringing her with us when we were going on outings in the summer, and then I bought her dinner a few times as well. So now she wants to return the favour.

The restaurant that we’re going to with her is lovely, and I havent eaten there in ages. In years actually, so it will be nice to go there to eat.

We’ll go on Wednesday afternoon. I am so looking forward to it. I think it was so lovely of my aunt to want to spend her voucher on us.

Got my hair done!

So my migraine is gone! Yay!
Mom colored my hair for me. Its just a box color but it turned out great. It looks really good. I’m pleased with how it turned out.
Now mom and my sister are upstairs wrapping presents and writing out christmas cards.
I have my weigh in later this evening. I decided that I wont eat dinner until I’m done being weighed. I did eat lunch, I had a sandwich and an apple. I normally dont eat a lot on weigh in day.

Food log 6th April

I am so proud of myself! I made really excellent food choices today!
Mom and my sister got take out food for dinner, but I chose to make a pot of vegetable soup, and instead of having take out food I had that with some brown soda bread!
I enjoyed it immensely too!
It was delicious! I only wish I’d taken a pic of my soup before I ate it!
Breakfast today was two fried eggs, some toast, and some fruit. I had a mug of tea to drink.
Lunch was a turkey sandwich, some fruit, and I treated myself to one cookie!
Dinner was a bowl of vegetable soup and two slices of brown soda bread, which for US readers is like wheatbread!
Also for drinks today I had a couple cups of tea, and four 500 ml bottles of water which adds up to 2 litres, and a bottle of coke zero!
I think I’ve done pretty good! I am really thrilled!
