We're All Simply Mad Here…

My own perception of reality… one blog post at a time.

All Change…

on December 4, 2012

Well it’s official, the holiday season is upon us. On Saturday DH and I put up our tree…


Sorry the picture is a little blurry, I must’ve been shaking or something. I love decorating our tree. Most of our Christmas tree decorations are from places we’ve been or have a memory tied to them somehow so it’s also a time of remembering.


This was the view from my living room window on Sunday morning. I’ve not been home in daylight since but it’s not much better. I’m tramping around in my hiking boots in an attempt to stay warm and dry.

Yesterday was a day of highs and lows. I would have written yesterday but it took all my energy to try and stay warm, man was it cold last night. I got home and lit the wood burning stove then sat on a cushion on the hearth and waited until the cold left my bones.

Yesterday was the first weigh in since we went back on the VLCD and I lost 5kgs. I was so pleased I did a little dance right there in the room. This morning I got up and put on a pair of trousers I could barely get fastened before. They fasten fine now and I don’t make that ‘thighs-rubbing-together-whistling-noise’ when I walk which is doubly ace.

I’ve also been told that my role within my department will be changing. I’m going to be moved out of the contract buying role I’ve been doing and into an internal buying role with sole responsibility for non conformances and possibly expediting. Also helping with monitoring and improving supplier performance. It’s a good role and I’m looking forward to it. It’s also got the added advantage of getting me away from the racist, sexist pig who is currently my boss.

The lows include said boss calling me a liar because I couldn’t possibly have snow because he didn’t, this kind of genius logic doesn’t take into account his living nearly 40 miles from me.

Today is going to be a good day. I can feel it.
