I can see the sun shine

I think I've been trying to write this post for about 2 hours now. I got as far as putting opening a clean page on my computer and then ..... work work work (what fun)!

You are not going to believe this but I can actually see a bit of sun. And, and this is big! 'They' are predicting and dry and sunny weekend for us! Which will be so nice since it's going to be the last weekend without the kids. 

Himself is hoping to go on a bit of a motorbike trip to the south of Belgium/north of France - so the dry sunny weather will be excellent.  I on the other hand have to clean the upstairs once and for all so I'll be sweating away ... I can only hope to be sweating away some of these blinking extra fat cells!

My diet was going to well, that is until last night. Kim's mom was here (for one night only) from Haiti so we were invited for dessert. She already warned me over the weekend that if I was going to turn into one of those women who never eat anything  nice our friendship is going to die a slow and painful death.  And since she's bigger than me I gave in and had 2 pieces of pavlova!  Sinful, but o soooo good!

Anyway, I'll just have to get back on the diet saddle again today and carry on. Life is too short to worry about 2 pieces of pavlova!

Speaking about carrying on, the work on my desk is not going to go anywhere if I don't do something about it so I'll stop spending time blogging and get back to work.


  1. Hopefully you guys will get some sun this weekend! The sun is playing peek-a-boo with us, and it is driving me insane.
    That pavlova looks delicious! I want to learn how to make it now haha :D

  2. yay for sun!!! that looks yummy. a little cheating is ok : )

  3. I have no idea what pavlova is, but I think want some!!! Glad you have some sun :)

  4. Yay for sunshine!!!! What an incredible mood booster!

    My opinion is, if you don't give yourself cheat days every once in awhile, you'll never stick with your diet for the long haul. You got this!!

  5. Work shermk.

    Where are yall exactly? If you don't, culture, etc.

    Oh, and I'm still in line to throw punches for those bitchy little girls causing any trouble. Count me in.
