Look…… I’m really sorry…..but sometimes life just gets in the way of a good blog!!
I honestly don’t know what happened !!!! I haven’t updated my blog….I haven’t been to other favourite online places, I haven’t talked to anyone on Facebook…..I have just been an all round slack tart really.
I haven’t been depressed or anything….or I don’t think I have!! I just haven’t had any energy to do anything else except the absolute basics to get through my days. I think I just had a meltdown after the moving and starting the new job and all that stuff? I still feel really tired and a little mentally exhausted. Unusually tired actually…..enough for me to think I should mention it to my GP at the next visit….might be low in iron or something??
STUFF YA !!! I have no reason except that I was slack and I have a care factor of …ohhhhhh….let’s say zero!!!! 🙂
So, since moving to glorious, wilderness surrounded Strahan with fabulous beaches and walks and water and forest vistas……I have started a new job at the takeaway……..last week I quit that job. Too physically demanding and I just found it really hard to soar with the eagles whilst surrounded by turkeys if you get my drift!! So, luckilly for me I have been stalked by a man who wants to open a lolly shop (oh, OK…it was advertised and I approached him!) and would like me to manage that for him. So I am like……………oh OK………because I would rather smell like a licorice allsort than a dim sim!!
So, on the 1st December Chew Choos in Strahan will open with Moi at the helm. If I can manage to keep my head out of the dusted english jelly babies jar I may even manage to serve someone and even turn a profit for the guy……..I am now on the lookout for someone to share this exciting little opportunity with me and so far am having no luck!! I can’t do 7days a week……I need to find someone.
The owner is a lovely guy who resides down Hobart way. He already has another Chew Choos shop in the old train at Margate and is looking at opening more if the opportunity presents itself. So who knows??!! We will see how it all goes…….a nice, easy, pleasant position I think with minimum stress…….except for the “resist the stock” part of the job!!
Ricky is loving his new position as 50% marine work and the rest normal uniform work. A nice mix and he gets to play in the Police boat and other cool toys for boys stuff. The house is pretty good and has lots of room and a fantastic yard for the dogs and us.
I am starting to feel more like myself everyday. I didn’t realise how “withdrawn” I had become……I have given myself a good slap around the face and I am back!!!! So there……
Thanks for your concern as to my absence……. I am alive and well……so cancel the caterers!! Now I must spend the next couple of days visiting all my blog buddies sites and seeing what I have been missing!! Sorry I haven’t been about to visit lately……I intend to redeem myself in the next few days!
Lapband wise…………….not a lot to report. I am still off the smokes which I am amazed at!!! I have a Dr Dreamy appointment on the 12th December. I want to have another big chat to him and see what he thinks. I am not happy with my lack of progress thus far…….
I can’t give you a photo this entry because I have a new computer……a very sexy HP TouchSmart big shiney screen thingy………with windows 7 and all the good gear…….just can’t work out where to find my bloody photos yet since we did the windows 7 upgrade…..I hope I haven’t lost them!!!
