Not much to say

As the title says, I don’t have much to say. Things are hectic in the M household – not that that is anything unusual for us, or for anyone else for that matter. Most people lead full and busy lives and it really boils down to what you want to compromise to achieve your goals. Right now I am not sure of what I want to achieve or what I want to compromise and so I am just going along – checking my weight daily and doing the best I can in the circumstances.

Having said this, it is really easier to talk about the changes I need to make rather than to actually make the changes and it becomes a bit like blogging – sometimes if we spent as much time doing / exercising as what we do blogging, we would all be a lot further on than where we are BUT the support that I get from this forum is certainly something that I couldn’t do without – hence the need to blog – but in limited quantities.

We had a great Sunday at Sea World yesterday – we haven’t been for about 5 ½ years and Al and I got free tickets through the union and got K’s ticket at a reduced price – all in all a great day looking at the new exhibitions. We were a little annoyed because the Corkscrew ride was closed for maintenance – luckily we hadn’t paid for the tickets otherwise we may have had to ask for a refund !!!!

On a more serious note, I just want to say how shocked I was to hear of Sophie Delezio’s accident on Friday night – my heart just went out to her and her family – how can something so dreadful happen for a second time to someone so young. My thoughts go to her and her family.

I nearly cried when I heard about Sophie's accident. That poor little girl has been through so much. Kind of puts my problems into perspective though. Things aren't so bad.
Hope your week is getting better.

I was working in Sydney when Sophie came out of hospital last time. I was struck then not only by the courage of her and her family, but by the fabulous love and support shown by all Australians. These things will help her though again - as it has the miners and their families in Tasmania. You should all be very proud to be Australians.

Sorry I haven't commented in ages. I have been visiting but just running short on time.

Yes that poor little girl has had to endure more in her short 5 years than anyone of us can imagine or even experience in a lifetime! She has definate determination to be here on this earth. Glad to hear all is well in your world although hectic (who isn't!). Take care. XX

Poor little Sophie has been in my thoughts too, the dear thing. It's just not fair. I hope everything is ok.

So things are a bit crazy at the moment, it seems? It's ok - just go with the flow, do the best you can and be happy with that. Things will return to 'normal' soon. Your success depends on making wise choices through the not 'normal' times though because those times happen more than we would all like and we can't put our lives on hold while they happen. You're doing great. Don't underestimate yourself. Big hugs to you and yours.

Yes that poor little girl puts our worries into perspective doesn't she. We have a lot to be thankful for even though it is hard to remember that sometimes with the crazy busy life we lead. Have a good weekend.

The fact that you keep going, keep checking, keep monitoring what you are doing, shows that you are doing OK. You are at goal, you are working like a trojan, and you have a family to take care of that pulls you in so many directions. And yes, a lot of us do. But you have to take care of your life. Your life is so important and you need to know that you are doing a great job.

Just keep going Linda, and soon the sparks will start to fly again.


Re Sophie. I was in the car driving home when I got a call to tell me what happened. I cried for hours. I believe that there is a reason she is still with us. She is going to do something in her life that is going to stop us all in our tracks and change peoples lives for the better. I hope I am still around to see it when it happens.

Have a good night, give yourself a pat on the back and a big hug, and tell yourself that you ARE doing a great job. xx

Hope things settle down a bit for you!!

I love Sea World too, it's probably my favourite of all the theme parks. Do they still have the Bermuda Triangle ride?! The last time I was there was 1998!!

I couldn't believe it when I heard the news about Sophie either. That's more heartache and pain than anyone deserves. I hope she will pull through.

Take care darl xx

Just want to say thanks! Amazing how I just finished my blog and there was your comment saying just what I needed to hear.

You are amazingly supportive and understanding - I really appreciate that:) And you've really bought home to me - that we aren't alone!
