Stew and the kids went down to the supermarket last night.
When they arrived home they rushed up the stairs all agog, and told me I HAD to come down with my camera.
So... like the paparazzi I am... I did.
Bex took one look and took off up the stairs again.
I made sure I was out of jumping distance, and felt really creeped out!
That spider is easily the biggest we have seen before, here in New Zealand!
It's a Vagrant Spider, or a Huntsman spider... they look the same to me!
I was mega creeped out, thinking it might come into the garage where I sleep, so I asked for fly spray to kill it.
Then I changed my mind. I didn't think it would be fair to kill it... so I made Stew catch it (cup and paper slid under it), and made him release it over our fence into the neighbours property!
No one is living there at the moment, so I didn't feel guilty.
Today Bex has another Playcentre Course to attend, so Stew and I will look after Dante, and Keera of course.
Steve is at work too.
Perhaps I can finally get to some blog reading even!
Would you believe... since I started a Facebook Weight Loss Support Group on Wednesday, we now have 41 Members! I am thrilled to bits, and kinda godsmacked too.
It certainly is helping me, to be able to share and support other girls, and have them support me too.
Just on the 'down side', I've had a nasty headache for the past few days. Someone mentioned it is probably down to sugar withdrawal. I tend to agree.
I just hope it eases soon, cos it's rather annoying.
Well half the day is over. Two toddlers are in bed asleep... and we shall now have our lunch.
The one thing I dislike about weekends is that Blogworld goes quiet! I know we are all busy doing stuff on the weekends, but I do miss hearing from everyone.
And Yes, I know I'm a crap blogger for not visiting you all so much now days!
Keera is being a handful today...very grizzly with a cold. Her temp is up a bit too...but not worryingly so.
I'm getting the twitches... wanting to eat something that will fill the void. No sweet sugary things for days and I'm missing it like crazy.
I even resorted to having a mandarin and banana! Mildly comforting, but not really. Will power has to kick in BIG TIME now.
PAULA: Thanks for reminding me about WW Jelly! I am off to make some right now. Maybe two... so I always have some on hand... now where did I put them????
End of Day: and it's been a busy day with the two toddlers, shitty weather, washing to get washed and dry before Monday... oh it's a busy life we lead.
