Feelgood Monday

Thought I’d share what’s making me feel good this Monday.

I finished knitting my first ever sock (
this sock ) for Steve – I need a rest because the tiny pointy needles I use really hurt my fingers – I’m sure Steve is thinking he won’t be getting the other one! Oh well, he will just have to keep changing feet to keep both warm for the time being.


I’ve started this vest from Patons for me in chocolate brown - the pattern is challenging me at the moment but the bigger needles are alot more comfortable.
We cleaned out the shed on Saturday so that we could accommodate a new/second hand purchase - one of these.....


and we were distracted by a couple of boxes of Steve's Mum's belongings - in one we found this!


M.J.F (Margaret Joy Fewings) gold embossed into a beautiful leather case and inside was the Kodak Six-20 "Brownie" D. What a long way we have come with camera's! This holds so much meaning for me and something I will treasure forever. I just wish it could speak, I'm sure there would be a few tales to tell.

On the weight loss front I'm 14.6kgs down and 20.4kgs to go and I'm feeling amazing - so amazing in fact I spoiled myself of Saturday and bought this dress in purple from Jacqui E...it's ok it was on sale!


The look on Gemma's face when I came out of the change rooms in this dress just made me buy it. Losing weight has to be your own decision and your mind set has to be just right, but the support of my family and friends is so very important to my success and I am one lucky lady to have that.

A couple of things I have noticed....my Enagagement and Wedding rings fit now (no eternity ring yet, but I'm working on that!), I want to exercise, I don't have that many clothes in my wardrobe that fit me anymore, I don't crave chocolate anymore (or sweet stuff), I'm eating so much better and I had a few glasses on wine on Saturday night and didn't feel guilty. How does that James Brown song go? "Whoa! I feel good, I knew that I would, now I feel good, I knew that I would" HA HA HA HA...sorry got carried away.

I'm so looking forward to the "8th Wave Rock Scrapbooking Retreat" this weekend in Hyden. Can't wait to catch up with all the lovely ladies that attend from all over the countryside. Lots of laughs and good times coming up. Oh and classes too from Lis, Gayle and myself - yes we do work while we are there ( little bit ).

New Music added to my eclectic iTunes library in readiness for the drive out to Hyden -

Warning - Some of the songs on this album are addictive!

thanks to Viv!

I have been a fan of Beth Orton for some time now ( thanks to Steve ) - Interesting Album that I think I'll need to listen to a few more times before I decide.
Well I think that's enough rabbiting on for this Monday. Might not be back for an update until after the weekend so stay safe and have a great week!
