One week to go

This time next week we will be in Melbourne, hopefully after a smooth flight with no hiccups and well behaved kids (a girl can dream).

Tonight we are out to Chinese for dinner for my niece's birthday, any excuse not to cook these days is fine by me ;) Plus obviously it will be a nice family dinner and a good chance to catch up with everyone.

Tomorrow I am finally getting my hair done, it is long overdue and very much needed. Honestly if I just let my hair go and didn't colour it at all...I would be a silver fox. So riddled with grey, makes me feel older than I am, hence I cannot wait to get it sorted. Plus it will be nice to have nice hair in time for our holiday.

Not just that, this coming Wednesday I am going to the theatre with a bunch of girlfriends to see Grease. A kid free night out doing something fabulous with friends...I can't wait. We are all making an effort with our outfits and putting a 50's spin on things. Mine isn't overly 50's but it has a bit of a 50's vibe. I love any excuse to get dressed up and do my make-up nice, I am such a girly girl in that respect. Plus I don't often take much effort with my appearance in the day to day run of the mill things.

So what has everyone got planned for father's day. Since we will be in Melbourne we are just going out for lunch with my brother-in-law and his family and then the boys are off to the footy.

Random thought for the day, once you become a mother you can pretty much guarantee that you will never get to eat anything by yourself ever again and you should just resign yourself to sharing with the kids. It might not be every single time but it happens a lot. I will even ask my son if he wants his own [insert whatever it may be here]. He will say no, I will make mine and start eating it and he will come over and want it...lucky I am such a nice mum and give it to him.

Could come in handy soon though, I have promised the hubby that I will start being 'good' after the Melbourne trip and actually put in some effort to lose some weight. Not that I am unhappy with where I am at now, but we made a deal months ago that if I got down to 60kg he would get me a 'new' car. I no longer believe that he will actually come through with the goods once I hit that goal weight but part of me still wants to see if I can make it happen. I am only 5kgs away from goal but it is always those last kilos that are the hardest to budge. I can't complain though, I have put in pretty much zero effort so far so maybe if I start trying I will see results. Thank-god for breastfeeding, it has been my saving grace.

Well I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.

Till next time xo
