We’re in holiday mode. And it’s great!
We spent a few days up in Whangarei after Christmas, spending time with Rob’s family. Since we got home, we’ve just been enjoying the lazy days of summer. Going to the beach, taking the dinghy out, playing at the park … oh and painting the house! I’ve been catching up on Season 2 of LOST (I was a bit of a late convert) … I’ve watched 24 episodes in just 5 days! So now I’m ready to watch Season 3 on telly with my hubby, instead of having to leave the room every Wednesday night ;-)
My parents looked after the boys yesterday. They took them to the zoo, and the boys stayed over. Rob and I got quite a bit of painting done, and we also managed to find time for a picnic lunch. Rob had been up to the supermarket and bought wine, strawberries, fresh bread and cheese. Then he threw me a helmet and we got on the Vespa and rode out to Tindalls Bay for a picnic on the beach. Really nice! It was my first ride on the Vespa and it was cool. I’ve been on a motorbike before but the Vespa doesn’t go quite as fast!
In the evening went to the Mexican restaurant for dinner, then walked along Orewa beach. And this morning we slept until 8.30! Bliss! Poor Mum & Dad: they were woken up at 5.30am!
As for my exercise routine, I’m back into the swing of things now. The gym is open again and I’m back to going 5 days/week. It was pretty hard over Christmas and New Year with them being shut so much. I found it much harder to keep up with my healthy eating when I wasn’t able to work out. Now I’m back on track and hoping for a good result tomorrow when I have my first weigh in!
I hope you are all enjoying the start of 2007. The weather has been great the past few days, so I’m hoping for more days like that before I go back to work on the 15th. And then some more nice weather at the end of January because we have our proper Summer Holiday at Hahei. I’m looking forward to that!
