Thursday saw A leave for Townsville.
Friday saw K leave for NZ.
So, Friday night I was well and truly alone.
And it was good ! I stopped at the DVD shop and got two DVD's - Identity Thief and GI Joe Retaliation. I love Melissa McCarthy because she is so funny - I wouldn't say to anyone that they have to see it but it was good for a few laughs. GI Joe had Channing Tatum (who died relatively early in the movie so that was no fun at all), Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson - all in all, nothing spectacular but a good way to waste some time. I also caught up on some shows I had recorded so there is now enough space to record programs again without having to delete any shows we want to keep.
I am also reading a book by Terry Francona (the last manager of the Red Sox baseball side) - man what an interesting book it is. It's a 2am interesting book - I am battling to put it down.
My SIL and BIL gave me a candle for my birthday that I haven't burned until Thursday night - wow, what a beautiful candle it is. So on Sunday I went and bought two more - Cinnamon Twist (which I will have to get again closer to Christmas as I'm sure this one won't last that long !!!) and Vanilla. They have the most amazing perfume and I am loving burning candles without anyone saying "Yuck - I don't like that." or "Why are you burning candles if you haven't got any clients coming over tonight." !!!!
I also bought a new pair of togs. The ones that I have are just a tad too small and, given my eating over the weekend, will continue to be a tad too small for longer than I would like. I started the weekend off really well with my breakfast and lunch on Saturday but after that it kind of all went downhill which was a little sad given I have tried so hard with my food. But, the weekend is gone and today is nearly gone (it wasn't a great food day either) and tomorrow is a new day.
On Saturday I left the house at about 9.15 and didn't get home until close to 5pm so Sunday was a (mostly) stay at home day. Apart from a quick trip to get the candles and the togs. On Saturday night I got another 3 DVD's (the blanket I am making is growing at a rate of knots because of all the TV I have been watching which is fantastic !!!!) - one was Parker (Jason Statham), another was Broken City (Mark Whahlberg) and for the life of me I cannot remember what the third one was - clearly it didn't make that much of an impression on me !!!!
The weather was gorgeous on Sunday and so I did spend some time outside reading my book - it was just lovely not having to be anywhere at a particular time and really just enjoy the time to myself. I do miss both A & K, but am enjoying it. The past weekend I have spent time with friends and I have spent alone and it's been just the right mix of both.
Yesterday I had to go up to Inala for work - and have to go up again today and tomorrow. I also have two clients this week - one tonight and one tomorrow night so I am hoping that I can be organised enough to get to gym as well. Last night I did a pump class - and I really enjoyed it. I certainly felt like I got a good workout which is great because it is doing what I need in terms of increasing my metabolism which hopefully will help to counter-act some of the cr*p that I have eaten this weekend.
I know that some of you have had a hectic weekend and I hope that you are able to find some time this week to gather your thoughts and slow down just a little !!! You can always hope can't you ?
