Miss me???

Geez - the days just seem to be running away from me. Still trying out this blog thing - I enjoy it when I get the chance but the issue is to make time and carry on regardless of how busy things get  - that's when I don't enjoy.

Also hard to keep writing everyday - so I want to be realistic about the whole thing and try and ensure I still enjoy blogging while still writing frequently. So, new rules - I am going to attempt to blog at least every second day. Lets see how this goes - hopefully that means we will be on 3 posts a week....

On the weight loss front I am making progress - 5kg down!!! whoop whoop! Another 5 to go by next weekend :-) Ok ok, so that it not possible but maybe 1??? Pretty please Mr Scale! Pretty please Mr Dress! Pretty please Universe. I need to look smoking.... The way I look at it, is that I could have looked thinner (I know this because I have been thinner) but then again, if I hadn't stopped the bus on 23 Aug and told all the fat kids could get off -  I could have looked a lot worse too!!!! :-) Also, it is the younger cousin's wedding so in order to try and avoid the pitying stares and comments like the "ag shame, your time will come too" or "ask your cousin for some tips" - I am attempting to look super hot.... Als, will being seeing some "ex" family (still family but I couldn't care too much if I never saw them again) that have not seen in years (long story). Or just as classy as all hell. Hair appointment booked. M.A.C make-up appointment booked. I found a dress today but if it isn't quite right then I will keep looking....

Don't get me wrong. I am in a happy and committed relationship, so at least I can skip the "shame, one day you will find your Mr Right" comments. Of course, like most chicks, I want to get married. But not just because my cousin is - when we want to. Oh, and when he asks :-)

Anyhoo - this weekend is a whole lot of cake decorating and flower making. Going to the Triangle to show my mommy all that I have learnt - so that she can leverage off my really expensive course that I had to pay for, that she can learn for free...... And Sunday I will be baking and seeing if it is at all possible for me to decorate something that kinda-sorta resembles a wedding cake of sorts......... My intention was to have a cake full of iced roses but holey smokes am running out of time - so am cutting back on the dream :-)

I hope to have some pics for you next Monday, latest Tuesday of THE CAKE. I hope it doesn't look too crappy. Trying something that I have not been shown how to do and not sure if it is going to look like a 5 year old got hold of the cake, or just plain awesome. This NEW, never seen before technique is to try and disguise the fact that I am the world's worst fine icing piper person!

Have a jol,
