2010 Ponderings

For Auld Lang Syne my dear, for Auld Lang Syne..............................

Happy 2010 everyone!!!!! Woooo-Hoooo (cue the party poppers and French kissing)

We had one of THE BEST New Years Eve's I have ever put in.

About 20 great friends gathered ( some bought their caravans )at a very tolerant friends place ( thanks for letting us invade Russ), good company, good conversation, good wine, good food and GREAT singing!!!!! What more can you ever ask for in life?

We hit the golden oldies sing along about 11pm and it went downhill from there, and by that I mean the singing.

Which brings me to wonder what Auld Lang Syne is. I know all the words of all the verses, but I'm not sure what it's all about. Sometimes, I live my life like that. I go through the motions and don't really consider why I am doing something. Perhaps we all do that to a degree for many things, but seeing as it another "NIKE year" for me, I think I will pay more attention to the details of little things that we " do because we do".

I am off now, to sort out the Auld Lang Syne issue. Watch this space if you are interested in knowing..................seriously, I will find out.

Watch this space......................I know you will.
May 2010 bring you much happiness and challenges. After all, if we don't have the rain, we don't appreciate the sunshine.

Stay Beautiful,

Why is it so?

Have you ever noticed that stuff hurts more the older you get? Like horse riding for example. As kid, it NEVER hurt, not even the day after. Dancing like a crazy woman ( sorry is that just me? ), it never used to hurt. Now I book a session with my Chiropractor the day BEFORE I go dancing.

Stuff just hurts now.

I have recently spent a week doing water sports. Not just swimming and floating with cocktails in hand. Almost.......... but not quite extreme sports.

And it hurt.

In the above picture, I have included an example of "hurt on the water". I had nothing left in my arms and hands, and if you look very closely, you will see the very tiny hold I had on the handle of the ski rope. I finished with a 360 spin and never even got my hair wet.

The next day, it hurt......................everywhere. Unused muscles were jolted into action and they were MAD..................for days. Until I dealt with the fact they couldn't hurt ANYMORE and kept using them. I'm a fast learner that way.

Stay beautiful,

K xx

Better Late...................real late, than never!!

Well Helllloooooo to you all in blogland.

All of you who have commented that I haven't been blogging, be silenced now!!!! I am back!

Actually, it's kinda nice to have been missed.

I hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and as we move in to 2010, I pray we keep all the resolutions that we make.

For the first time this year, I kept my resolution for the WHOLE year. I can be a bit of a procrastinator, so I thought I would draw some inspiration from NIKE. I have had a 'Just do it!" year, and because it worked so well, and it actually got me through a really tough year......I reckon I will take it one step further and do it again this year. That, and because I can't think of anything else I want to do besides lose weight, ......and we all know how THAT resolution goes.

We are on holidays at the moment and are back from whence we came. I could move back here in a heartbeat, but at the same time, I DO love seeing different parts of Australia. We spent Christmas with Andrew's family at a local dam known for watersports (an fishing for some) and we had a blast. 17 people, 9 kids and barely a cross word spoken among the kids and none among the adults. I reckon that's pretty amazing.

We had a week there and now are in with Mum and Dad ( bet they are pleased ) and enjoying getting around seeing them and other great friends here.

Leaving for home around the 7th Jan, and will be back at work and back to normal by the 11th Jan. Still got some time to go and New Years Eve to be had. Bit hot at home and raining there also. We would like to say that we bought the rain with us, so cough up local councils!!!

Hope you enjoy the late Christmas pic, we all wanted to be in it this year. Not dressed real fine, but it was a spur of the moment thing.

Talk again soon,

Stay Beautiful,

K xx
