Thought I had better check in and let you all know I'm still alive.

Last week was hectic with work and my daughters school musical.

The musical was great - we went to two performances and I must admit I enjoyed it better the second time. The production was Oklahoma!and my daughter played the part of Aunt Eller. I have all the songs still in my head - "Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day".Not being biased, I have a very talented daughter as far as acting goes. she really carried the production and was on stage for 95% of the time. She was so good and convincing my mother didn't recognise her. At intermission I asked my mother what she thought of her granddaughters performance which she replied " I haven't seen her yet, when does she come out!!!!

It was so funny, she really didn't know it was her as she was dressed up as a 50 something matronly woman from around the turn of 20th century. She will never live that one down I can guarantee that!!!

On the weight loss front I have been plodding away, today I weighed with a loss of 1kg (2.2lbs) so it heading in the right direction. Oh, and I was successful at negotiating leaving work at 3pm for two days a week, so I can do my physical therapy at the gym, so I'm happy about that. With the musical and all I only made it to the gym once last week, but plan to go today,Thursday and Saturday.

Anyhow, gotta go and do some work.

Awesome job on getting that time off! Now there's no excuse at all to get slack girlfriend!! lol

When do we get to see pics of your little "Matron"? That's really funny that your mum didn't recognise her own grand daughter! She was probably sitting there the whole time thinking, "Gee, why did i bother coming?!" Poor nana! lol

Go you for the loss!! :o)

You must be proud of your daughter...sound so talented! I'm not much of a singer/actor but wish I could.

Well done in getting the time off!!! You really need and deserve it.

How wonderful that your daughter is so talented.I am glad the performance went well and what a hoot that your mum didn't recognise her.
