Don’t fall off your couch, bicycle, throne (no judgement), pool lounger – or wherever you are reading this post from….
I, Emily have taken the time to sit down to my much neglected blog and say HELLO POSSUMS!
We’ve spent the past few hours in the pool because we’re in the middle of some crazy heat wave here in south east Queensland. Makes the thigh rub situation a lot worse let me tell you.
As for the double chins, they are no longer my friends!!! I have welcomed a third member to the family and am now the proud mum of a triple(t) chin!
Probably because of too much of this…
And not enough of this…
While we’re on the subject of my new bicycle – can we just take a moment to discuss the size of the SEAT.
What the actual. Because I fear for my own life and physical safety I have only got on this bicycle once. For obvious reasons.
I stood for a few minutes just staring at it wondering if he had actually got the bike man to put a broomstick handle on my bike?
More to the point, has he not seen my ample backside recently?
Was he just doing it for comedic purposes???
I told him I will not be mounting my new bike until a new seat is acquired, and it has to be at least as big as a loo seat. And it has to be padded.
We then had a little discussion about how boys and girls have VERY different anatomies. Yes I went there.
Anyway, it’s been a rather crazy start to the New Year with a fabulous camping trip where we were expected by the locals and their super-sized tarp set ups.
In fact, one camper of 30+ years even complimented me on the water trough I had at the entrance to my site that removed sand from kids’ feet.
A few midday beverages were consumed, which is possibly how I acquired the triplets.
But once school goes back, Jan 23 (yes Queensland is WHACK for starting back when there’s a public holiday midweek) I plan to reign in my eating and drinking.
So that gives me approximately 10 days to get it out of my system. Then I shall be flooding my social media accounts with photos of my runners and active wear. No I won’t.
However, one can not indulge in such delights all day every day because well, there is nothing to look forward to otherwise!
I must away, work to do, because that never stops, and I have about 2 hours before the iPads lose their lust and three kids start to nag for another swim, food, I’m bored break and OH MY GAWD the pre-teen DRAMA.
That is a whole other blog post…anyone with a tween will know what I’m talking about! The struggle is real.
Happy Friday and I’d love to know what you’ve been up to?
