Bits Of My Weekend - Volume Ten

Welcome to another edition of Bits Of My Weekend. This is a concept stolen from Michelle. You should head over there and see what the rest of the world did on the weekend. If her post isn't up yet, be patient, she is in the USA and is probably still HAVING her weekend.

Saturday we went to the Castle and found... Walls!

My favourite niece called Emily made some holes in the walls. The holes will one day be powerpoints.

This wall will soon have a kitchen installed on it.

Then we went to the pub for lunch. There was a Celtic Festival on in town. These are my very favourite kind of pipers, ones that are walking away from me.

Saturday night was the final night of 'The Producers'. I'm sad that the show is over, but I'm looking forward to having a bit more spare time in my life again.

Sunday morning Chyken made me breakfast in bed. It's a bacon face!

Sunday we went for a drive, and found Mister Pig along the way. I elected not to tell him about the bacon I had for breakfast.

What did you do this weekend?

Hey Hey it's Mister Chicken!

I'm not very good at this blog business, but this weekend we put on the last two performances of The Producers, and I'm hoping that after that I will have more inclination to write about what's going on because I won't be so bloody tired.

On Wednesday Chyken and I were in the audience for Hey Hey it's Saturday. Aside from my arse barely fitting in the studio seats, we had a great time! I miss variety TV, I'm not convinced that Hey Hey is the answer to the lack of it, but it was certainly fun. It will be interesting to see how long it hangs around for this time.

Castle Update: They have put the plaster on the internal walls, it is really feeling like a house now! Finally!!!

WW Update: I didn't weigh in this week, due to the Hey Hey taping, so I'm not really sure how I'm going. Will find out next Wednesday! Last night I did aqua aerobics for the first time in over a week, and I am paying for it today!

I've applied for a promotion at work, I'm not sure if I will get it, it will come down to if they want to take the time to train someone from scratch, or go with someone who knows some of the stuff needed for the position already. I have no idea who else has applied, so I really don't know what my chances are. Watch this space!

I'll leave you with a picture of Mister Chicken. He was a present from Chyken, and has been quite a hit at work.

Bits Of My Weekend - Volume Nine

Short and sweet this week, I was too busy to take many photos. This is Nutter being cute.

On Saturday we visited the house, we were happy to see that they have found our missing gable.

This whole weekend was taken up by "The Producers". We had a show on Friday and Saturday nights and a matinee on Sunday afternoon. All the shows went really well, but I'm glad I'm going back to work tomorrow for a rest!

Head on over to Michelle's blog to see what others around the world did this weekend. If her post isn't up yet, be patient, she's on the other side of the world and is probably still HAVING her weekend.

Bits Of My (Long) Weekend - Volume Eight

On Friday we got evacuated from work because someone hit one of the pipes leading to the sprinkler system. It was the most exciting hour I've spent at work in a long time. The Aviation Rescue Fire Squad even came!

It was my workmate, Shevaun's last day, she's off to work with american kiddies at a summer camp for four months. We had an Aussie Food Day in her honour. I made pavlova. Yum!

This weekend was the opening weekend of 'The Producers'. It went very well, we have 5 more shows to go. Have you got your tickets yet???

Went out for lunch on Sunday, this was the dessert. Banana Fritter, it was extremely nommy. (If you're wondering about the main course, it was Chicken Mignon from a couple of weekends ago, I'm a creature of habit!)

Monday we did some house visiting, the outside is almost finished!

Then Chyken went off to the recording studio, and I went to bed with a good DVD box set. Bliss!

My Friend the Chocolate Cake

(Disclaimer: This post is NOT intended to offend anyone, it is simply my point of view, and the people I am bagging are people that you or I have probably never met, nor are likely to meet, so get over it and go back to your cake!)

I've become a fan of the 'next blog' button. See it? It's up the top there... I am powerless to resist! This is both good and bad. I have found some simply wonderful blogs this way, Six In The City, Cake Wrecks and Pioneer Woman to name but a few. I have also stumbled upon a LOT of freaks.

There are two types that really annoy me. One is the 'God-Botherer'. You know them, they're the type that have not only found Jesus, but feel they simply must help YOU find him as well. Bleargh. I have also noticed a huge trend towards dressing the little god-bothering children in horrible diamond patterned knitted vests over polo shirts. Double bleargh!

The other type that seems to be most common is the 'Oh, I'm fat! Help me, why am I so fat?' blogs. Well, I'm here to tell them why they're fat.

I hope they're ready for this???

It's because they eat too much, and don't move enough. Simple. No fad diets here in Chicken and Bee Land!

Now, I've posted the odd photo in my short time blogging, so you more than likely know what I look like, so you're probably thinking 'Why is the fatty boom-bah bagging the other fatty boom-bah's?'. The difference between me and some other fatties (in MY opinion) is all in the attitude. The way I see it, everyone has choices. You CHOOSE if you want to eat the cake, and if you eat the cake, then you must accept that the cake will more than likely change the way you look, and probably not for the better. (Obviously, this does NOT apply to people who are overweight for reasons outside their control, like medical conditions or because they've just had a baby or something)
The people that shit me the most are the people that try and blame other things for their weight:

'Oh, I try, but I just can't lose it!' Bulldust! It is a simple mathematical equation, use more calories than you are putting in!

'I eat because I'm lonely', 'I comfort eat!', 'I had a crappy childhood', 'I've tried EVERYTHING!' Again, bulldust! You eat because you CAN, no one makes you choose the chicken kiev over the leafy green salad at the pub. (Unless you are one of those geese that are only alive to make pate and have their feet nailed to the floor, I bet they get a LOT of kiev!)

My other 'favourite' people are the ones that think they can't possibly have a relationship until they lose weight. That's complete garbage. I am living proof that you can, and aside from me as an example, why on earth would you want to be with someone that only noticed you when you weren't fat anymore?

I've been overweight for years. There is no reason for this other than I LOVE to eat and I HATE to exercise. Simple. I know damn well that I am eating the ENTIRE packet of chips, and I don't care. Well, correction, I DIDN'T care. Some time in the last 4 months (and I couldn't tell you when exactly, even if I wanted to) something inside me decided to care. I tried to fight it for a while, but eventually even I had to admit that I couldn't carry on at the weight I was, and I should do something about it. So, I joined Weight Watchers. And before you tell me off for going on a 'fad diet' when I bagged them a few paragraphs ago, I don't believe WW IS a fad, I'm cooking my own food, and so far I haven't had to buy anything I wouldn't normally buy, I'm just getting educated in preparing it all better and having smaller portions. So far it's been mostly good, although I am missing the cake terribly! I intend on losing this weight, but I refuse to make this whole blog about it, 'cos that would be boring. For me, let alone you.

Now, please don't get me wrong, I think it's fantastic that there are so many people dieting out there in Blog Land, and I find some of the stories about weight loss quite inspirational, so by all means, blog away, document your 'journey'. But please, I BEG of you, stop blaming anyone other than yourself for the size of your arse!

Bits Of My Weekend - Volume Seven

We have a roof!!!

I don't think this farmer likes foxes...

New shiny 'Space Man' shoes. David Bowie ain't got nothin' on me!

We went to my nephew's Confirmation.

Then it was dress rehearsal time for 'The Producers'. How hot are we???
