God bless little Archie! It's rough to go under and wake up with a funny feeling mouth (and a sore butt, if the vet also drains the anal glands.) I'm glad he got a chance to run and play free today so he's all relaxed before tomorrow's big challenge!I wore Archie out today with all the excitement, including an offlead dog park up the Tamar river. He'll be at the Vet all day tomorrow having dental work
Is that a common thing with golf clubs? The ones in your area sound awful!I most probably won't be back at that club again. They have treated one of our friends appallingly.
Don´t they all say that?He said he would give me a good price.
That helps a lot. I hope he does give you a fair price: it would be so much less of a hassle to be able so sell him a bigger batch of stuff rather than having to deal with a lot of single buyers.He knows I have a fair idea of what it's worth.
That sounds delicious. I´d be jealous if I wouldn´t be having the most delicious chicken salad myself.I had what I think was the healthiest thing on the menu- a warm prawn salad. It was brilliantly presented & had half an avocado in the middle with a soft poached egg on top. Oh, yum!
Thanks, Floater. Archie knew something was amiss He sat looking at where his bowl would be & when I drove him in he didn't lie down in his usual position.God bless little Archie! It's rough to go under and wake up with a funny feeling mouth (and a sore butt, if the vet also drains the anal glands.)

It was a lovely day, but I'm a bit tired today. I sure tired out little Archie. G is going back to the original club. He had better not get suckered back into volunteering too much!Hi Cate, it sounds like a nice day out with so much good exercise. The salad sounds divine! Is G going back to the original golf club where you both volunteered too much? I hope he doesn't get sucked into volunteering this time if he does go back!
It's more a collectables place, which he says people still buy, rather than buying antique furniture.Here antique stores are having a hard time. People don't want antiques anymore, so we gave a lot of ours away. It's great you can sell yours if you like! My eyes should be checked soon, too. When I get tired I don't see so great. Hug little Archie for me!
Thanks, Liza. It is very motivating. It was o quick I'm too scared to get back on the scales!Wow congrats on that 3 kg lost so quickly! That must feel great and very motivating to keep at it!
That Tai Chi class sounds lovely with that teacher. I think with both yoga and Tai Chi it's very important to find the right form and teacher that fits for an individual.
Sounds like you are having some lovely days out and good times connecting with people--lovely to hear!
I can’t imagine not having them really. They are so versatile & filling & I just love them. They’re only $1.30 each at the moment & are at their peak.I haven't had or craved avocado for a while: maybe I should get some.
I agree. They don’t do well with emotion & they want to go away with their families, but this Christmas will be a biggie for L & she needs them there. It’s one day.How strange that SIL's sons won't say if they'll be there when Christmas is less than 4 weeks away.
But even if they don´t want to go: they can bloody well tell her so she can find people to celebrate who WILL support her. Cowards.They don’t do well with emotion & they want to go away with their families, but this Christmas will be a biggie for L & she needs them there.
I agree, totally!But even if they don´t want to go: they can bloody well tell her so she can find people to celebrate who WILL support her. Cowards.
I think I'll message both nephews today.That's awful about your SIL's kids. I'm so glad you can go and support her.
I'll try to not take it to heart when it fluctuates. I wanted to wait a couple of days & did. It was just up half a kilo, which was fine. Phew. I knew that the big loss the other day had to be a lot of water & this morning I hadn't had a BM. I can confidently say I have lost 2.5kg in my first week. YAY!!!I try to just step on the scales when I remember and I regard it as just feedback that can be a little random at times - it kinda feels likes steering a not very maneuver-able boat in generally the right direction. Glad your little dog is home and feeling safe and clean now. And glad you are loving all the fresh veggies!
& I really loved this post, LaMaI love, love, LOVE how much more positive you sound. Yay for supportive partners and golf buddies, yay for arsepimples not holding club positions, and yay for Archie being back to his charming little self.
Thanks, M. It's amazing how much better I feel. Is it the 2.5 kg lost, the clean eating, no wine......? Whatever it is, I'll keep doing what I'm doing. Unfortunately, I twisted my right knee yesterday just a little while moving some furniture & it hurt like hell. G was vacuuming & he usually doesn't move anything so I try to do each room before he vacuums & then I go back & put everything back in place. I often sweep around the edges- skirting boards etc. I don't do this every time. It's such a big house.Big congratulations on such a wonderful first week! It's so good to hear you are feeling much better, too! My back goes out so I need to crawl out of bed sometimes and crawl around the house, and it's an awful feeling, even though I know it's temporary, so I get how alarming needing to be lifted out of bed might be. I'm so happy your knees are doing better, too!
It's good that they can still surprise us, especially if it's not in a bad way.It's funny how you can be married to someone so long and still be getting to know them in some ways. J and I are very different, so I am often surprised by how he does things in clever ways I never would have thought of.
I don't like junk food luckily. Those little snacks ( & my wine) are (were) my downfall. Our long-term health is way more important than any of that.I know what you mean about just that little extra snack each day tipping you over the edge so it's way harder to lose weight. I don't eat much junk food, but I tend eat too many little snacks that add up quickly. I think we can overcome this this time because we're putting our long-term health front and center. Each little snack does stand in the way of what we want, and it's not worth it!
I'm so glad I took Arch in. The vet I saw last week came up to reception while I was there & I asked her if she could do me a small favour & show me again how she gives small animals their pills. She was really sweet about it.I'd love to hear what the vet says about keeping Archie's teeth clean. I just noticed that my cat's teeth are very yellow and I'll probably need to take her in for a cleaning.
Thank, you xoxoHappy Very Successful First Week!
