Four Point Oh

Four Point Oh

~~~ AAAAaaarrghh!!! With only 40 days to go before I reach the all consuming major age milestone of 40, I cannot help but feel the panic set in. I want to rush out and get a drastic hair cut, dye my hair shocking pink. I want to make an appointment at a LIPO clinic to suck the fat out of my arse. I want to run screaming into the hills. but instead I ordered fresh contact lenses and put my tiara on. Yes, this milestone has me slightly (EXTREMELY) panicked, but honestly there is not much I can do about this ageing thing except count my blessings of which I have many: No grey hair (yet) Good health Brilliantly awesome kids A loving husband Work for an awesome company Food in the fridge and heat in the geyser I can laugh at least once a day AND most importantly!!!...

Fat is Jolly?

Fat is Jolly?

~~~ I recently watched an old tv show (that has since then ended for obvious reasons). The Big C - a show about Cathy who has cancer. It is funny, crazy and a little sad. (disclaimer: I cried like a baby) In short.. I loved the SHOW! BUT  *clears throat* One of the quotes from the pilot episode sometimes rings back at me because I am not sure how it makes me feel. She makes reference that all fat people should be jolly. Cathy Jamison: You can’t be fat and mean, Andrea. Andrea Jackson: What? Cathy Jamison: You heard me. If you’re gonna dish it out, you gotta be able to look it up. Fat people are jolly for a reason. Fat repels people. Jolly attracts them. I know everyone is laughing at you’re joke, but no one’s inviting you to the prom. So,...

Shower scene – uncut

Shower scene – uncut

~~~ I had no choice – it was too much The winter coat had to come off last night.. I just could not stand the feel of leg fluff any longer. COLD BE DAMNED!! There are just a few things to take into consideration when it comes to shaving the legs in winter: Number 1 – I cannot see without my glasses Number 2 – the shower is quite small and every time I bend over the glass door swings open. Number 3 – it is COLD!! So there I was in the shower, razor in hand, tackling the manic growth blind, in a cramped space moving furiously to keep all of me under the warm water. Using my hand as a guide for the razor as I cannot see where I have shaved or not (due to semi-blindness) , I tried to move as swiftly as I could in upward strokes but it...

Screaming Silence…

Screaming Silence…

~~~ It has been Five days… Five Days of  Fun Five Days of queuing for the loo Five Days of  rustling TEN odd people Five Days of trying to organise the chaos Five Days of noise Five Days of laughter Five Days of crazy Five Days of giggles Five Days of screams Five Days of teasing Five Days of worrying what is for breakfast/lunch/dinner (for the ten odd ppl) Five Days of seemingly unending dishes Five Days of FAMILY .. and now all that is left behind is silence so loud it screams. It has only been a few hours since everyone left and already all the craziness is forgotten and they are all missed. So now we all resume our normal programming until we see each other again. Which wont be too long if I have anything to do with it. Well, at least long enough...

Just Saying

Just Saying

~~~ Was chatting with a friend the other day, and in conversation she mentioned a mutual acquaintance of ours that has her flummoxed.. So she asked me what my opinion was, just in case she was not understanding the situation correctly and missing something important. And as the story unfolded, I sat there, half laughing, half shocked and all the while shaking my head at the absurdity. Mutual acquaintance (we shall  call her DUMBASS for this story).. Long story cut short — Well, turns out the DUMBASS wants a another baby, and has been doing much preparation for this in fact. This is not a bad thing, normally. Where the crazy shit comes in, is when DUMBASS already has FIVE children. Yes, FIVE KIDS!! Now DUMBASS cannot even afford the ones she has, nor has...

The Hunger Games — IRL

The Hunger Games — IRL

~~~ Having never watched a single second of this or read the book… This story is probably not what you think it is. I have just embarked on a strict regime of semi starvation, and extreme exercise . Shit got real people. I am getting old. This is not a drill. I thought I was OK with hitting the fourpointoh but it turns out that I am in fact not. The closer the day looms, the weirder my mind goes and the more I panic. What is it about this specific date that makes me feel this way? So out of control and afraid? So this is me trying to get my thoughts, my focus and my life under control by removing all the things that make me feel good. Ironic, eh?   I am keeping a very personal diary of actual weight lost and muscle growth and hopefully by the time my...
