School holidays, nearing the end!!!!

Much excitement,mostly from me!!!! Lol, Blondie goes back on Friday,Grade 2 thank you very much,and brownie starts prep on Monday!!! I'm so excited,I havnt had the house to myself in 7 years!!!!! I have many things both boring and exciting planned,cooking,sewing,lunching,manicuring,pedicuring,hair cutting and styling,lounging.....the list is pretty endless!!.no I must add that I have loved being at home with my boys,having never been particularly ambitious,nor university educated,it has suited me and my DH to have me at home all this time.I never felt I was missing out by not going back to work,I pretty happy with my lot as a housewife and mum.but the last 12 months have really brought home that I miss my old life,the freedom to do as I please I suppose.My boys are ready,they are happy well adjusted,bright boys,albeit full on....so even tho I may miss my wee poppet for a week or two, I doubt It will last!!

So onto the next few months,plans to expand my business,going a little further a field,getting fit and healthy,planning to lose about 10 kilos,dunno how much I weigh now,but it seemed like a good number! I am having a "mini tummy tuck" on the 23 rd of March,my surgeon assures me that this will remove the scar tissue and endemetriosis once and for all,bloody hope so! I thought about a full one for a nanosecond ,decided it was overkill,longer recovery,more painful,more expensive...and nothing I can't fix with a bit of exercise and portion control! A full one is quite gruesome,so just having my mummy tummy removed below my belly button should be a small improvement.Will be in hospital for 2 days,and then am instructed to do absolutely nothing,for at least 10 days,looking forward to some reading,and catching up on some Buffy on DVD! As long as the kids are dropped off and picked up I should be ok,although doing nothing is not something I am good at!!

Got my kitchen aid mixer,it is awesome !!!!!!! I luuurrrvvee it! I have made vanilla ice-cream ,watermelon,and raspberry sorbets with my ice-cream churn attachment,and some cakes and cookies. The badge maker is also lots of fun,waiting on the Chinese new year celebrations to finish so I can order more supplies direct from a manufacturer.

Oh well must go,things to do children to pull off one another.....
