Weekend roundup

Went to Palmy to visit Carol and Megan. Murray was in Taupo with a helicopter crew doing the Air Force thing. And perving on chicks in bikinis no doubt. I tried to help Carol rest by doing some jobs for her and minding Megan so she could nap. Her baby is due in 7 weeks and she is thoroughly sick of waiting now.

Came back in time for the Wedding of the Year. Or Civil Union actually. Saw an old ex; confirmed I made the right choice there. I don't think I have been in one place and seen so many pregnant or recently sprogged people. Except maybe my antenatal class. Drank a bit, fed bub from a bottle for the next feed :) Ate, danced and made merry. Danced onto a piece of glass but only bled a little. Got back on the floor and shook my Scottish dance thang with Sam and others. Disappointed that a particular person completely snubbed me when the appropriate music was played for other kinds of dancing, but danced lots with Sam instead, who seems to have lost all dance inhibition. Way to go babe :)

my best bud had her baby on Saturday afternoon, having had her waters break on Thursday and then nothing happened till they induced her on Saturday morning. Heath Patrick is a big boy... 4.02kg and with HUGE hands and feet. Currently on ice in neonates while they monitor his brain (he had a lack of oxygen for his first minute or so of life). Was kind of weird going back into the very same room Charlotte was in, but to see someone else's baby. Deja vu... Poor Sarah is doing the milking cow routine as i did, and going down in the lift to see bubs when she can. Good thing she's getting lots of care and help from the nurses and her midwife. Mine never even came in to see C, and only met her at 4 weeks old! (bitter much? lol)

Back to school tomorrow; got a pow wow with the Hillary House leaders to plan another victorious year. We are the only house so far to have won twice in a row and are now going for three! Wednesday is course confirmation day, so I am there in an official Deaning capacity, and then Teacher Only days on Thurs/Fri. Then it's all on from Monday. Still not totally guilt free about leaving Charlotte, even though she'll be in great hands with my Ma. But the fact remains that to be a stay-at-home mum we would have to sell the house and buy a bedsit in Taita. Damn mortgage.

Not that there's anything wrong with Taita - eh Leon?!

New Year

So another new year is upon us. Time to make some more resolutions.

Firstly, three triathlons again. I didn't do them justice in 08, as I didn't push myself due to being either pregnant or just post baby. My best time: 1h 44 in February. Worst time: 1h 59 in December. The first one of 09 is on the 19th and my goal is to beat the December time by at least ten minutes.

Secondly, eat less, exercise more, blah blah blah. I bet everone tries this and never sticks to it, just like me. This year will be different though. Yeah right. :)

Thirdly, brush my teeth more often. Far too often I get into bed and then remember I haven't done it. Euuu.

Now for some for other people:

M: Clean out the pantry. And by pantry I mean the space that is the same size as my *entire kitchen*. It's full of things you no longer need or use and needs to be tidied out big time!

S: Finish what you start. You know what I mean, Mr "I'll put it back later". :P

K: Exercise every day, including 2x swim a week with fishy, to make sure she goes too.

R: Make chocolate slice for fishy but only let her have one piece per day cos it's too yummy!

K and D: Learn how to REPLY to text messages! You know who you are.

A K and P: Make sure fishy stays in touch despite no longer being a lady of leisure.

L: Save save save - be really tight so when you come to NZ you can spend up large!

Anyone else want to be on the list? :)
