For the third time this year I have torticollis (wry neck). This is extremely painful and frustrating and each time I hurt my neck, it's from towel-drying my hair. So I'm left sitting around, not being able to move much and not being able to sleep as I'm in too much pain to lay down. Grrrr, I had so much planned this weekend in the garden and my exercise was right on track and now everything must take a backward step. I know I haven't been blogging much lately, things are changing, I'm contemplating going back to 1 blog and moving this one over to One Crafty Habitat, we'll see. So for now I'm left watching tv and getting everyone to do everything for me, this does not make me happy. The boys are playing footy in Millicent tomorrow and I won't be able to go. There is no way I can sit for 5 hours in the car while watching them play. Hopefully I can get into my amazing Chiro/Bowen guru on Monday and this neck of mine will be sorted once again. Have a lovely weekend.

This week my friend Julie and I joined the Biggest Loser Club in an effort to tone up and lose a bit of weight. I really want to lose 10kg that never seems to shift and doing something like this with a friend (and sounding board) makes it a little easier I think. The online program I have chosen is as follows: 3 month Rapid Weight Loss program. Exercise: At Home - walk & toned advanced. Menu: The Biggest Loser Express. As much as I would love to re-join at Jetts, for the moment I will try the at home program to save money. After spending some time pulling out weights, DVDs, yoga gear etc from various hiding places around our home, all of my equipment is now in one spot under my overlocker table.
Day 2 is going well, I'm a little hungry right now but am avoiding temptation. I really wish the kids would hurry up and eat the left over chocolate from Easter.

Hi, did you miss me? Nothing like a short holiday away from the screen. To be honest, I just haven't felt like blogging lately, there's been a few posts over at One Crafty Habitat but that was all I managed.

Here are some lovely (very rich) Easter treats that the kids and I made up yesterday.

Early this morning after 2 of the children had risen, I made my way out into the vege patch. I picked the last of the tomatoes and pulled the bushes, I dug soil over and added manure then planted carrot, broccoli, peas and beetroot seed and a bed of garlic.

The last of our sweet smelling basil (I will miss you so much over winter).

The beetroot are starting to take off.

The green manure in 3 of the beds is growing well.

The beginnings of 2 new pea beds. This is where I was growing loganberries but to be honest, they weren't that successful, the thorns were terrible and we didn't really like the taste so I ripped them out today and my hands should be fully recovered in a couple of days.

The girls helping out in the hot house with a slater problem.

So there's a glimpse of what I've been up to, I hope you have a lovely Easter break.
