doing nothing

M is at work.
I am house hunting online.
I'm getting a little bit excited by some thing I am seeing.
Even the potential to buy and build. . . . 
M isn't here to ground me.

Today I had enough. 
I disconnected. 
I deactivated my facebook account. 
The amount of time spent on the site had become ridiculous.
Lunch breaks in our tea room at work are silent with all us gen Y's staring at our phones for half an hour.

They don't make it easy.
You have to put in your password
Verify that you aren't a robot
Then go through a myriad of your facebook friends that will miss me. 
Luckily for them they put up people I haven't spoken to in YEARS! 
Made the whole thing a lot easier. 

Now , 12 hours later I am wondering what else there is on the internet other than FB, Vogue forums and easy weddings.

Thats Me

What has 8 legs?

I was in my bathroom last night and happened to look at the wall.
There was a teeny tiny spider. Not much bigger than a finger nail. 
Then I look at the wall a bit closer. It has 5 brothers or sisters. 
I immediately call M in to have a look at our little spider problem
He squished them and disposed.

Today I was in the bathroom again and saw that 10 more brothers and sisters were enjoying some hang time on our bathroom wall.
I freaked. I hate spiders and the number of them got a bit unnerving. 
M went and squished a few more and then went back to his computer game.
I was not prepared to do this ie relax. I jumped into my car and drove to Bunnings to pick up bug killing devices/chemicals. 

When I returned M was in the same spot as I had left him and  I went into the bathroom. It was if they knew we were killing their siblings. There were about 100 of them. Everywhere. Mostly around the toilet. I squealed and sprayed. 

We created a spider graveyard. One was even hanging from a thread from the ceiling. 
The Baygon is sitting dutifully in the bathroom waiting for another attack. 
It has also taken me a while to stop 'feeling' creepy things crawling on me when something brushes my skin.

Hot stuff.

Photo: Bit eggy but mix master works. Just need help eating it now 

I had a day off today. In 30 something degree heat with no air con, this may be one of the only days I wish I was at work. Never mind, work has me going in to treat a couple of emergency patients which will definitely kill that wish. Forecasts are supposing 40 degrees tomorrow so at least there will be some air con to go with it.

I tried out my mix master today and made the above Pavlova. It doesn't taste exactly right. More eggy. I think that I need to add more sugar.  I also made a chocolate cake I found on the Donna Hay website. I have yet to try it but it seems alright. M loves choc so really he is not fussy.

Hope everyone is coping in this heat. Stay hydrated. Eat cake. Except my Pavlova. I ate dinner in the middle of writing this. It was reaaaaallly eggy. More sugar and more whipping is needed. Not bad for a first attempt though.

Shopping BAN

I have this coming in the mail from ASOS
Tracking says it is coming today. 

After this I am going to try and buy only the essentials. 
I should try and replace shopping with exercise.
Post honeymoon weight has definitely crept in. 
Motivation is zero.

However , M is going to do the 12wbt in the next couple of weeks.
I think I will do it with him to help motivate him and get those extra kilos that have crept in.

Mix Master

My new toy is my Christmas present from M.  
I have yet to use it but I am trying to find something truly worthy of the new toy.
I will post photos of my first baked goody,
Although I may just have to use it on a packet mix to see how it goes.
