Fly By Post

Wow, can't believe it's been so long since I posted. So..just a quickie to let you know how things are going.
I'm flat out! New job is going well. Still getting to know everyone and everything but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon enough. Everyone is really lovely so I'm very happy (and loving my new pay cheque!).
I'm feeling quite relaxed and stress free. Already have enough money put aside (after only two pays) for any major car repairs that may come up. Now to save towards moving house....but don't think we will have to move as it's supposed to be a 'long term' investment property. Would still like to have the money there just in case though.
I've only just settled into a routine as such this week as the first couple of weeks of my new job were during the school holidays so I took a couple of days off here and there to be at home with the kids. This is my first full week of work and I am knackered!
I know I'll get used to it soon enough. Getting much more organised and preparing everything the night before, so am able to get out of the door relatively early so that I'm home not long after the kids are.
My health and fitness have taken a back seat during the transition period. Didn't go totally off track though. I ordered Lite N Easy for the first two weeks (so I wouldn't fall into bad habits and buy take-away) and that kept me on the straight and narrow.
Watch out summer!

Hey Frankie

It's so good to hear life is finally turning around for you, and is going smashingly well! Woohoo! About time hey?

Congrats on the (weight)loss too! And it's only going to get better for you and the kids from here!

Thanks Kerry. Yep, things are really good. Still a lot of 2010 to go, so I've got time to see Operation Sexy Bitch happen this year.

That is just so great, I applied for a job as well and I crave routine at the moment, not working sucks I get lazy and lazier by the day and being in the mid of winter doesn't help much either.

wow, good on ya for loosing the weight, that's so great, I gained my 2kg loss again, ffeerrrk!!! But heck, I've been slack and eating crap, my own fault, I'm feeling for ever tired. Lack of nutrition I think.

Thx so much for that link you sent me, I find it interesting and so true.

Hey hotshit :)

Just popping in to log a comment with my new blogger profile - blogger hates my wordpress account now, so I haven't been able to comment in ages.

Anyway, have been thinking of you lately. Get in touch if you need to debrief. much love.


Frankie said...

Thanks Lad. It's given me a sense of accomplishment and renewed confidence. Love it!

Jude, thanks. I'm ok. I want to start blogging again but need to blog about my cousin first and I just can't bring myself to do it. Will try this weekend x
