WEEKEND OVER

My weekend is almost over and as usual I spent the large part of it doing housework.The only time I had to myself was Saturday morning when I participated in some retail therapy as I was looking for some winter boots.I thought I might have a chance of fitting my gherkin legs into some knee high black boots since I have lost some weight. I had noticed several pairs of boots had adjustable straps at the top and thought I might be lucky. Well I was wrong, though I did manage to get one pair zipped up, I couldn't get the buckles done up and they really looked shite, not to mention I looked like I was walking with pineapple shoved up my derriere - not a good look. I had to settle for some ankle boots (or in my case - cankle boots! lol
They are black suede with a wedge heel, so comfortable. The rest of Saturday was spent washing, ironing and vacuuming. On Sunday I did the grocery shopping,purchased some Easter gifts, finished off the washing, stripped all the beds-yadda yadda yadda!
All I seem to do is bloody housework on the weekend, I like to hear from my fellow bloggers out there who work, if they are in a similar situation, or what they do to get some "me" time. I just never seem to get any.

My eating has been good this past week and I have not weighed my self yet as I want to get,what I think and hope will be a nice surprise when I do.I'm a bit worried how I'm going to go over Easter with all the chocolate I will be around.I think I will have to be on my guard and really work on the will power. I recently read that our conscious thoughts and a behaviours represent 2% and the other 98% was our subconscious thoughts and behaviours. Now I don't know if this is right but I know there are many. many times when I've done something and later had no memory of it or wished I had at least thought about my response before doing it - particularly with eating that's for sure.Maybe I need some subliminal messages playing in my ear when I go to bed, at least it would cut out the noise from hubby's snoring. Hmmmm, something else to think about.

Chocolate is always a problem, if its available in the house its almost impossible to resist.
Glad to hear the diet is going well keep it up.

I am lucky enough to not have to go out to work (thank god!), but I still hate spending all weekend doing housework... cos I don't do much during the week! So, I do one thing each evening... like vacum, or dust, so there's less to do on the weekend. It may only take 20 minutes from your evening, but it adds up to more time for yourself in the weekend. Hope that helps? As for Easter, well it is totally up to you eh? No one force feeds and adult!

Hey :o)
If you mosey on over to 3FatChicks, they have a link to a site with wide shoes. I haven't checked it out, but i am going to. I have flintstone feet! I wear a size 11 womens and a size 10 mens. I don't have long feet, just wide.
I'd like a nice pair of flat boots to wear with skirts, and this year i got excited as K-Mart & Big W had nice flat boots. So i tried some on and i apparently have gerkin legs too lol
Great boots, but not for my porky legs! Maybe next year..sigh...
I don't really have a big problem with chocolate eggs. I buy myself a good quality kilo egg and i'm happy with that [and that's not a problem? lol]
But i have a HUUUUUUGE problem with hot crossed buns dam it! I MUST resist..i must!!! But i don't wanna. YES i doooooo!!
I don't work outside of the home. But i'd like to :o)
Most people that i know who do work all week, make sure they keep some time just for themselves. Even if it's just an hour soaking in the time with candles and a book. You need to look after yourself. You just live on the other side of Goulburn don't you? I can come over and teach you the ancient art of "lounging around" lol

Mick, Yes it is sometimes hards to resist.

Chris,Good idea on the housework I'll give it a go,also you are right about the easter eating it is up to me.

Cactus,I don't have wide feet, only fat calves lol!, It's pretty ironic really,cause everthing else is wide just not my feet!

Rofl at your comment..."I looked like I was walking with pineapple shoved up my derriere - not a good look." I burst out laughing...
You crack me up....
This is the first year in a long time that i have been able to fit into long boots... woooohooo
I havent bought any... but tried on lots... I have finally lost enough weight to be able to go and buy some.. but now i just cant afford them... haha
Last yeah i did buy a soft pair of cheaper knee length boots.. but was able to scrunch them down a bit so i was able to wear them with my winter skirts.. they looked ok...I might layby some and pay them off slowly... then it will be summer hahahaha

oh and ty for your comment on my blog tonight.. i just feel at a loss as to what to do with them...
