Thought I'd run off with the 1.3 did you?

te he, I haven't had a chance to update this week, did you think I'd won the 1.3 mill in lotto? Yeah right!

What a week. Big week at work. So glad it's over.

Big week here at home. Much progress on the menagerie. Molly I think now is mothering Lucky and he's lapping up the attention. It's nice to watch. Oh they tussel, yes they do, but in a fun nice way, a motherly way she treats him now, keeping a watchful eye on him.

Bo still is keeping her distance but two mornings ago I was getting read for work and I hear a kerthunk and she'd jumped off the spare bed where she's taken to sleeping on her rug, rather than in her basket on the floor now. I thought OMG it's going to be on, Lucky was in the passage way, I was on the other side of the baby gate which goes into the bath/toilet/laundry areas. (Yes! We had to install a baby gate, sheesh!) But to my utter amazement Lucky just sat, Bo came out of the spare room, walked up the passageway in front of him, not 10cm away and walked through the gap in the gate that only she can get through and he can't. Of course he did a bit of butt sniffing on Bo's way through, hahahahaha But no barking, no chasing, no excitement. I had to pinch myself to work out if I was sleep walking. She hasn't done it since, but we're getting there right? That was a huge step.

Oh and a big purchase. But it's on order. I'll keep you in suspense until it comes in. Ahhh see that's the perils of living in a small town, you can't get exactly what you want when you want it. Even in the next biggest town. I won't say any more till it's in my hot little hands. Although I think Jodie might hazard a guess if she tries hard enough!!

And the last big thing this week, my sister-in-law's book has been finished, has been sent away only yesterday and I got the email tonight to say the book is finished and it's winging its way back to me. What service from the amazing Shutterfly. I can't wait to give it to my sister-in-law, I'm sure she'll love it.

Loving this double page I put in the book. A visit from the family up to our place during December, actually for Mike's birthday, gave me a perfect photo opportunity. Oh how I love these kids, my niece and nephew, what characters they are. Love the out takes page.



Credits here.

Lynn had asked for a pic of the socks I gave my friend for her 50th. Heck, you know they were a pair I made during the year last year and I know I took a pic of them when I finished and I can't for the life of me find the photo. I will continue to look though.

Oh and I don't know whether I've shared this or not but I'm doing Tony Ferguson, I started back in November. For those not in the know, Tony Ferguson is a pharmacist who has developed a diet, and it's working! It's hard because it's low carbs and I do so love my bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, and they are ruled out. But the fact it's working is still spurring me on. As of tonight's weigh in I have lost 8.2 kg. That's 18 pounds to my American friends. And I'm feeling great!

Right oh! Time for bed I'm thinking. I have a weekend stretched out ahead of me and nothing much planned except coffee with friends tomorrow. Love these types of weekends. Have a good one everyone!

ooh! Congratulations on your weight loss! Keep it up!! If you've been doing it since November it should be getting easier now that you've developed new habits. Shouldn't be craving those carbs as much as when you started, right? Keep it up Carol!! I'm cheering you on! :)

So glad there is progress with your furry friends, won't be long and you'll be wondering why you were ever worried! We are bringing home our new kitten early in the week, think we must have rocks in our head but Peter is so cute!! Love the pages, your S-I-L will love her book. They are fantastic weight loss results - well done!!
