Fat Girl Swimming …

First swim of the year down at Cudgeon Creek this afternoon. And despite a little sunburn (what was I thinking not putting on sunscreen!?!?!?), I continue to be amazed at just how I’ve learned to give-n0-fcks about going into the water.

Swimming at Uriarra Crossing

Today we went swimming at Uriarra Crossing which is part of the Murrumbidgee River. It was a little stoney, but the water was lovely after the tail end of the east coast heat-wave.

#Move2017

After a family member’s recent serious heart health scare in late October I became obsessed with the idea of buying a FitBit. You see – I’m not fit. And I regularly don’t do much about it. Certainly not very much in the past twelve months when I’ve been working nearly 7 days a week.

Today’s 4km walk was much easier. It’s been 7 days since I’ve resumed walking, AND instead of morning we left it until the cool of the late afternoon.

Happy Birthday October Babies!

What do you do when there are too many people with birthdays in one month? You have one party for all of them at the one time. So last weekend on Grand Final night we celebrated the birthdays of Uncle D, Aunty K, Aunty G, Annie, Andrea, Pop, and Nathaniel. The end of “Happy Birthday dear … “ was a bit messy, but talk about time saving.
