2007 - start as you mean to go on

This morning I woke up early, dying of thirst and feeling a bit like death.....Yes, I confess: there was a little wine indulgence had last night. So I sensibly drank a large amount of water and went back to sleep for a few hours. When I woke again at 10:30, I felt way better, thanks!

I still didn't feel fabulous, but I had planned a gym workout, and dammit, hangover or not, I was going to do it! So I ate my egg whites and toast and headed off to the gym, with Bike Boy in tow (he's given up his evil ways and is back on the healthy eating and exercise wagon as of today) and had a great upper body workout. Yeah!

I've also cleaned up the debris from last night's celebrations, which included tipping out wine leftovers and throwing away liqueur chocolates and other such naughty things, so they're not sitting around taunting me. There are two slices of lemon tart in the fridge, but the kids have laid claim to those, so I'm safe there. I've drunk lots of water and stuck to my guns with my meals so I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself. Positively smug, actually.

I also have some new goals - more about those later.


How crazy is this? We stopped at the supermarket on our way home from the gym to grab some milk, yoghurt and bread. On the way in, I passed a huge display of lunch boxes, pens and exercise books. Back to school sales ALREADY? The kids have only been on holidays for just over a week, for God's sake! I can't even begin to get my head around school supplies for at least another two weeks, by which time they'll be sold out of everything I need. *sigh* Better find those stationery lists and get my A into G.

Even more bizarre was Bike Boy's discovery in the bakery section - he went to grab some bread rolls to make lunch for the kids and discovered HOT CROSS BUNS for sale!!! ARE YOU PEOPLE FOR REAL? Did somebody move Easter forward this year and forget to tell me or something?

C'mon....who eats hot cross buns in January? Anyone? ....Anyone?

On Christmas Eve, I was driving through town and saw a bus that had "Happy Easter" in the digital display. Now THAT I can dismiss as simply picking the wrong message for the display.
But Hot Cross Buns??!! Are you SERIOUS? Perhaps we should just give in, and extend every celebration so that the whole year is covered? Hmm... if it comes with lots of Public Holidays, I might just be on to something there!

Yep, saw those hot cross buns at the Supermarket too... Want to bet that the chocolate bunnies are on sale withing the next 2-3 weeks?

It is crazy, and I can tell you there were more people than just I who noticed the craziness of hot cross buns still within the Christmas season... well 6th of January is the date the Three Wise Men apparently brought their gifts to the Christ Child, so it's really silly to already be starting to sell Easter goodies...

Go figure

Well, yesterday I saw chocolate bilbies in Darrell Lea!

Hmm, come to think of it, I have seen a rabbit scoot across the road in front of me 3 or 4 times in the last 2 weeks.....perhaps it was the Easter Bunny, out getting a head start?

Guilty! I love hot cross buns - In fact i was having a craving for them in November. I hate the fruit ones though I buy the fruit free and eat with lots of butter - so deliciously EVIL!

I knew hot cross buns and easter eggs would be on shelves Jan 1 Knew it!
