Where do the Days Go?

Before and after photos. If they stay in order that is. I'm sure you will figure out which is before and which is after - LOL!!

Our beautiful new car. I just love it.

Our twin baby budgies. Unfortunately one of the babies had an accident and was trying to fly while the kids were holding him and had hurt his back or leg. He can't stand up so we are just hoping with a lot of TLC he will come good.

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since an update. Life just goes by in a blur!!
Firstly weight loss.................

I have lost 6 kgs in 3 weeks and couldn't be happier. It has clicked back into place and I am very happy with such a good start. Just need to keep it going. One thing I have worked out though. Weight Watchers is for life. I need the accountability. Too many times I have left thinking I can do it on my own but I don't. I definitely don't agree with everything to do with weight watchers but I love my leader and it is still one of the cheapest weight loss programmes I know of.
I have just had my kitchen upgraded. A very long overdue project. When we moved into this house 12 years ago, the kitchen was the only thing not finished. The couple we bought the house from had split up and she had taken a tafe course to built the kitchen. She didn't get to finish it. As you can see from the photos, I have been living without cupboard doors for all that time. So we decided to do that and also put in extra cupboards and a rangehood over the stove. We had to put in a whole new pantry because she hadn't built that right and it was totally out of square and we wouldn't have been able to put doors on the old one.

I am thrilled with the result. It is getting finished off tomorrow. Unfortunately one of the panels by the rangehood was cut short so they couldn't put the doors on those cupboards.

Netball is finished for the winter season. I enjoyed coaching Nikki's team but am glad it's finished. Training Monday night and games Saturday afternoon takes a chunk out of the week especially when it is a 30 minute trip each way. But I coached a beautiful bunch of girls who got along so well and although we didn't make the finals, they all had fun and we had lots of laughs.

We have signed up with a builder to have the extra room built. Unfortunately it could take up to 16 weeks for council approval which could take it right up until christmas so I just hope we don't have to wait that long. With the new TV Steve won, our family room is so crowded. We have definitely outgrown the house as it is.
This weekend is going to another busy one. Jarryd has laser skirmish parties on both Saturday and Sunday. Nikki has a netball breakup which of couse I will go to. Football Saturday night and catching up with a friend on Sunday. I need to find some time to fill up a green bin for the green rubbish next week. We need to fill up a bin every week so get this area cleared in readiness for the new room.
Thanks again for all your comments and support. It means a lot.
