Pam, I'm guessing that your bedside table has a couple of books on it and maybe a glass of water? Mine has books for each child, a torch, box of tissues and a couple of socks that need to find a home.

{scurries off to see what's on my bedside table}...

 

One book, a pair of earrings, a ring, 2 random loose batteries, a remote control, 3 photo frames, a empty pkt of mylanta, a used light bulb, a lost button, a lamp, 2 hair ties and my glasses. See, I'm not as organised as you pictured :lol:

Just wanting to find out if Louise and Sherryn are going to be affected by the floods they're expecting in Brisbane this week (if not already). Hope you're all ok and if you can, pop and let us know.

 

I'm at my parents so I might not get to come back in and check before we get home tomorrow.

Hiya everyone

 

I've heard from Sherryn

 

"Hey V, we're fine, a big soggy. roads around us r cut but we r lucky 2 b in a fairly safe area. Louise would be same. Thanks 4 thinking of us, it is just awful for those ppl affected"

 

OMG, this is just so so sad. My g/f was evacuated from CBD and their suburb is also under threat. King tides expected about 3pm QLD time tomorrow.

 

I've been in tears watching the news, it's truly heartbreaking :cry:.

Yes I am fine, thanks for worrying about Sherryn and I! No flooding where we live, but I have friends who were evacuated at 4am from East Brisbane. Anyone near the River is in trouble. There is also concern about diseases, and drinking water in the near future.

Glad to hear you two are both ok but yes I agree, watching it is heartbreaking. It's like the fires all over again, except this time it's raging water instead of raging flames.

Hi guys! We're all good where we live too - it's so surreal - life as we know it has gone back to normal - you wouldn't even know there has been flooding and yet 12ks up the road the city is in ruin and so many peoples lives have been turned upside down! It's like we're watching it happen in another state and yet it's just up the road! I find it bizarre - especially when we go to our supermarkets and we have no food either.

 

You just have the feeling of not doing enough - I had to go shopping for Paul's birthday pressie and I felt guilty out shopping.......would love to volunteer to help out but the kids are still on holidays - they have donated thier pocket money and we're going through toys to donate today..

What a great idea about the toys...I was thinking about sheets, blankets, towells, clothes, that sort of thing. But not sure what to do with it. Have to google.

 

Am very happy to hear both you and Louise have escaped any flooding. The story hasn't been so lucky for a handful of girls in my flickr photo group.

Paul and I helped my sister move all her medical and business equipment back to her premises at Southbank this morning (she wasn't flooded in the end, the water stopped a metre from her door), and then we went to East Brisbane to help friends who were flooded clean up.

 

Luckily, they are in a classic Queenslander on stilts and the water didn't get inside their home. Their yard, fence, and under their house was filthy - we helped shovel 10 cubic metres or so of pebbles from their yard, scrub the exterior, the fence, etc for about four hours. Smelly, messy work. My arms are aching! It was actually quite fun, despite the hard yakka. There were at least a dozen other friends, relatives and neighbours helping, and random strangers were walking up and down the street offering to help. Other people would just arrive like magic with trays of muffins and sandwiches and cold drinks. Kind of a fun, "we're all in this together" community vibe.

 

Our friends were very fortunate; others around them had low set homes or had built in under the house. I saw lots of wet gyprock from one place which had probably only recently been renovated. Paul helped the old man next to our friends get wet junk out from under his house; he had a bad leg, and I guess he just wasn't able to do much to prepare for the flood.

 

Siobhan is going to hand out baked treats to volunteers with her friend tomorrow. She'll love it.

 

God I'm knackered like a knackered thing.

Hi All

 

Back from 3 weeks in Bright. Missed you.

 

Was watching the floods on telly, it was so sad. Been worrying about you Louise and Sherryn. So glad you are all ok.

 

Um, I ate a sh*tload of sausages. The local butcher up there wins all the local awards and I said to Ty that I just wanna eat sausages up there. Well what I meant was, cook me a sausage or two at night, not a couple of sausages, plus a chop, plus a burger. So all he cooked me was sausages, and I never got around to telling him that I'm sick of sausages. Then he left to come back to work last week, and though he'd be a darling and do some shopping for me, and bought me a week's worth of sausages - after I'd already been eating them for 2 weeks. Arrgghhhh. Anyway, I had them with boring salad, no fattening potato salad, coleslaw or pasta salads, so I actually managed to still look pretty good.

 

Will weigh myself tomorrow morning on an empty tummy, but it should be pretty good. The first two weeks I was able to go for runs or bike rides, the third week was a bit restrictive as I had all the kids and it rained all day. Should have taken some dvds.

Yay Sharon - well done.

 

I am down to 55.3 so that's 300g to go, although once I've lost that I'll no doubt think that I could get even better looking legs if I trim off a bit more. But Yay to me. I have put in the effort and I'm getting the rewards.

 

And now that I have my internet and scales back I can work out the calories of food, so it should be easy to trim off that last bit.

 

Well I made a New Years solution to be a better secretary for the kinder this year. I'm going to have the minutes done the week after the meeting and the agendas printed the week before the next meeting. So go me.

 

Louise - Sounds like it was very rewarding work. When we had the bushfires we all just felt so helpless to do anything - and then they got inundated with volunteers - as people just wanted to do something, so show their solidarity. It must be so nice to be able to help.

 

Pam - Happy Birthday for tomorrow. Gawd, it doesn't seem like a year since I phoned to say "Have a few drinks, enjoy your night, this baby isn't coming today" LOL.

 

Sherryn, you could put a positive spin on it that you were helping the Qld economy by going out and buying things in Qld shops with Qld retail assistants. LOL. Happy Bithday to Paul.

Hi All!

Happy New Year!

Sherryn and Louise - glad ot hear you're all ok.

 

Sherryn - my gf moved to a place called Cleveland. She seems to like it. And YES YES YES would definitely like to book in a catch up with you and Lou when we come up. We'll be coming up in July.....15th to 22nd I think we've booked for.

 

Well done everyone else on weightloss! Especially over xmas - I've done nothing but eat and drink for the past 3 weeks :D so no weightloss happening here!

 

Everything else is going well, I'm off work until the first week of Feb. It's been nice being at home and getting jobs slowly done. I've cleaned out and rearranged the kids rooms - feels great!

 

Better go get the kids dinner ready....

 

Ciao!

xx

Welcome home A. LOL at Ty and the sausage overkill.

 

Oh thanks for the birthday wishes.

 

I've had the flu since Friday, and yesterday I had a temp of 40 and now I know what that feels like when my kids get it! OMG! Um...yeah so it's sapping my appetite so at least there's that. I'm still eating 3 meals but I can't eat much and there's no snacking whatsoever not even my daily latte so that should give me a good kickstart back into things. At least it's not like gastro where you lose kgs of fluid then put it all back on the first day you eat normally. Anyway I hope I feel better tomorrow as I'm catching up with gf's and it would really suck to be sick on my bday and miss out on seeing friends.

 

Yes I know it doesn't feel like a year since we trudged up and down that hill trying to get that girl moving. I do however always remember that weekend fondly. We got to spend so much time together, and I got to know Ty alot better...tho I'm sure it wasn't as lovely for you as it was for me lol.

 

I'm gonna go, I've hit the wall. Off to bed.
