Things I Know

It's Friday (do I hear a whole bunch of TGIF's ????  Cos there is certainly a HUGE shout of that from me !!) which means that it is time to link up with Miss Cinders for the Things I Know linky because, as MC always tells us, we all know sh*t.

And this week I know that I had a bad day on Wednesday but one e-mail turned my perception of my day around and it turned out to be a pretty cool day !

I know that I am SOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to #vvow tonight.  During yesterday I was tweeting about #vvow and how much I am looking forward to it and asked the question if it was silly or sad that I was so looking forward to it ?  I got the following reply "I was trying to explain it to Miss 6 this morning and it sounded really sad!"  To which I replied "I think maybe it is only sad if we think it is sad !!! Maybe we should choose to think of it as fun and a safe way to drink!"  That made me spend a fair bit of the afternoon (because, hey it was better than trying to finalise a budget !!)thinking about my perception of things.  At the end of the day, things are what they are, and it is only my perception that affects me.  I totally get that there are times when 'things' become over whelming - I honestly felt like that yesterday because there was nothing specific that was worrying me, but there was enough 'stuff' that made me spend a fair bit of my day, hiding behind my computer monitors, crying ! Maybe I didn't try hard enough to see the positives in the day - the sunshine outside, the healthy family that I have, the sauna that I was working in - OK that wasn't really a positive.  Or maybe I just have to accept that there are days when things feel a bit cr*ppy and that is OK too.

I know that I am looking forward to catching up with a friend on Saturday for a chat - this is my friend who makes me laugh so much that when we leave each other my stomach absolutely aches !

I know that I am looking forward to catching up with an ex-boss on Saturday night - we haven't seen each other for absolutely ages and things have changed heaps for her since we last spoke - I am sure that we will have lots to talk about.

I know that I am going to be going to visit my BIL and SIL who live just around the corner from me on Sunday morning because the Gold Coast Marathon runs past our home and I can't go out in the car but I can walk around to their place.

I know that keeping busy over the weekend is good for me.  I feel that I am starting to become a bit of a hermit - if I am not going to work and have done the grocery shopping, I don't want to go out anywhere because I am so embarrassed by my size.  I know that this is how it is for now.  I know that there is nothing more that I can do to change my weight BUT that doesn't make it any easier for me to accept.  I know that it is just a number on the scale but even if I didn't see that number every day, I would be able to tell from my clothes that my weight is not doing what it should be doing.  Cutting out sugar, wheat and dairy should not see me put on close to 30kgs in approx. 6 months.  I know that there have been times when sugar has crept back into my diet but not to the extent of 30kgs worth !! That is something that I do know for sure !!

I know that I am looking forward to a quiet day at work - with only me in the office - and plenty of time to work through budgets and end of financial year stuff !

I know that if I don't cut up the coconut rough it lasts a lot longer !

What do you know this week ?
Why not share it over at Miss Cinders ?

TFTD : If we counted our blessings instead of our money, we would all be a lot richer.

Have the B.E.S.T weekend and don't forget about #vvow tonight - 8pm on Twitter - wear your pj's / most comfy clothes - and be ready to laugh !


  1. Hello my beautiful darling.
    You know what I know? I have a wonderful,u dear and thoughtful friend who surprised me with a little love, light, happiness and smiles in my mailbox. Thank you my precious, you topped off what was a wonderful day yesterday with that surprise after what has been a pretty full on two weeks with sick kids and me being so heavily pregnant.

    We will be out and about on Sunday for the marathon, as hubby's brother is running it.

    Wishing love, light and happiness. Big love to you. X

    1. You are so very welcome - I'm glad you liked it !
      Have the best weekend and stay the lovely lady that you are.

  2. Would love to stop by #vvow tonight but please bear with me if I stuff up - I'm a total twitter noob so I am just getting used to everything!

    1. So glad you joined in with #vvow - I hope you had as much fun as I did. I love those evenings - I had a great time.
      And, there is no stuffing up with things like that - the worst that can happen is that you miss out on a comment somewhere along the line !!
      Have the best weekend !

  3. I have no bloody idea what #vvow is! *hangs head in shame*

    I think you're undoing your hermification with all your getting out and abouts this weekend! Hope you have an awesome time catching up with everyone :)

    I don't know if it's an age thing or all the chocolate I've been eating, but my scales are telling me to get my butt into gear and start moving more. I didn't realise how much weight I'm starting to put on until I noticed the flabby of my upper arms the other day! Oh my goshness!!!

    Have a fabulous weekend lovely!!

    1. #vvow = virtual vodka or whatever - it started out as a virtual vodka party in Australia day and this is the third get together we have had. Basically you get whatever you want to drink, hop into your most comfy clothes (generally pj's) and tweet !! It is so much fun - well I think it is except I got locked out because I had used up my quota of tweets for the day :( - not happy Jan !!!!
      I wish it was an age thing that was making my weight go up - at least that would be a reason - I suppose medication is a reason but it's a cr*p reason as far as I am concerned !!!!
      Have the bestest weekend ever !

  4. I love a day at the office on my own too:) And being a hermit sometimes is good too!! My clothes are telling me to start eating better too!!!! Ach, I need too!

    1. I had a lovely day in the office today - alone for all but probably the first hour ! If only it was what I was eating I would probably be happier because it would be something within my control. Oh well - am not going to worry about what is out of my control - will just keep on doing the best I can and see what happens !
      Have the best day !

  5. If I had a marathon going past my house, I'd sit out on the lawn with a glass of wine and some cheese, toasting them as they laboured past my house.

    Have a fab weekend!

  6. I hope you tweeted your heart out and had a gorgeous time honey!
    I love how you look for the positives in all situations xx


I love getting comments - please feel free to leave a comment to let me know you were here !
Have the best day.
