Reasons for poor blogging efforts

Walking around 8kms a day in the new both kids at the one local school hip hip hooray now we can all walk/ride/scooter to school regime.

It is very very hot regardless of walking 8kms a day.

I am meant to be working on an article so avoid the computer completely.

Small children = very demanding.

Did I mention I’m currently walking on average 8kms a day?

I am still on top of the whole washing scenario. Take that, you five of the male species who live in this house and insist on wearing clean clothes each and every day.

Did I mention the heat? I know, nowhere near as hot as Melbourne but I don’t do heat.

All the walking and all the hot weather = sweating like some form of pack animal. Attractive.

The sudden increase start of exercise has energised me in other ways. No not that way, although that new years resolution is being achieved quite nicely thank you very much but today, I thought I’d like to make ravioli. From scratch. So I did. And spaghetti. I mean, SERIOUSLY, how ridiculous is that! I also made caramella stuffed with spinach, ricotta, mint and lemon, which I served in a simple flavoured butter of lemon, pepper and pine nuts.

Don’t you love New Year resolutions? And why does New Year deserve capitals? I mean, COME ON.
Anyway, new year resolutions – so much promise, such a sense of virtue, so deluded.

1. Embark on the Diet of the Decade. Bigger than the 2002 event (lost 14kgs), more successful than the half-arsed 2008 festival (gained 3kgs), building upon the determination and success of the 2007 showcase (lost 10kgs).

2. Do laundry every day, rather than letting it pile up and having to do five loads every second day.

3. Put the laundry away the day I do it.

4. Exercise a minimum of three times a week.

5. Get over my answering the phone phobia.

6. Call my friends more often.

7. Stop the internal monologue that starts ‘I should …’

8. Have more sex

9. Resolve the issue of the bigger boys’ bedroom in terms of storage and how the hell do you have eleventy gagillion pieces of lego without them being distributed all over every single surface.

10. Celebrate my family each and every day.
