A pretty good weekend...

Well, it's Sunday evening and I've had a pretty good and eventful weekend.

My parents moved out of their house on Friday and are 'freeloading' for two weeks till they move into the new one, so they were staying here on Friday night. We have a double bed in the loungeroom and various boxes of theirs around the house too (food, a lamp etc). My sister is still here - she stayed all weekend as alternative to spending it all at our grandparents... coz Greg has an X-box at least! Boy, I tell you though, I like my own space. There were definitely too many people around here on Saturday... yikes... I'm glad I don't live with my parents anymore actually.... too much...

Greg and I went to Ali's (http://www.alistafford.blogspot.com) house for dinner last night and we had a great time! Oh gosh Ali, the chicken acupulco was divine!! Mmmmmmm...... so tasty... and not to mention the bananas and icecream! Yummm.... thanks so much for having us! We all played 'Cranium' too... I love board games!! Was lots of fun... we'll have to return the favour soon.

We trudged over to the northside to attend our friend's church this morning, which will probably soon become our home church too. Very different to what we are used too (mainly the singing which was a lot more low-key) but a great sermon that really hit home and great company. I just love the people in this church. We spent the afternoon at friends afterwards for lunch, and watched a kids movie (for Jaidyn - Price of Egypt) and just chatted... was a great afternoon... what we really miss at our church - everyone always seems to eager to head off to their own lives... nice to feel a part of it again...

Tonight was stir-fry for dinner and I hacked into Mum's food box for sauces. Made a perfect taste with soy and oyster together, so I'll have to remember it for next time... I feel like some bourbon though... mmmm....

Well, sorry to bore you all, such is my life hey...

The week ahead will yield some refocussing on my diet and fitness hopefully. I've been terribly slack and can't-be-bothered this week... gotta get back to the gym 3-4 times and eat much better. Drink some water too....

More job-hunting and applications. Hopefully I'll get a phonecall and interview for one job I applied for last week, but tim will tell hey. Got some scrapping to do too for my classes coming up in Sept...

Oh, and its our one year wedding anniversary coming up on Sunday... I keep forgetting... we haven't been able to plan anything like getting away coz we are broke, so hopefully we'll get our tax return this week and be able to go out for a fancy breakfast or lunch or dinner or something nice, I think breakfast sounds good..... maybe a quiet picnic lunch somewhere private too.... gosh, I should really have made him sonething, but I sometimes think he must get sick of me making him things... lol.... hopefully we can also go and buy something for eachother on that day too..... (I would love a new ring! hehe)

Have a good week all.... sorry if I've blabbed on a bit here...
