been thinking

Yesterday when I came home from grocey shopping a lady came up to me. She was doing a survey for the New Zealand health department. As it was so WINDY I allowed her to do her survey in the house. She interviewed me then took my height and weight and measured me around my waist. I have always been proud to be tall 5foot 7 but i felt embarrassed to be standing on the weighing machine.

I have always said its whats inside a person that matters. Their personality. I have told some of my bloggie frioends that too and i did mean it. however when i looked today on several internet sites it seems i am about 23 LBS overweight. i have never been on a diet. I live a rather sediate lifestyle. I gave up walking last year. I like food. Im thinking that if i continue as i am i may get even bigger. I feel a bit down now.

The other thing ive been thinking about today is the fact that i have to go to Auckland on Tuesday. For the day. I have to be a key witness in a court case. Im a bit nervous about this. I have to tell my story to 12 people (the jury) i dont know.

I found a new book meme thanks to my friend Barbara

Where do you do most of your reading? Your favorite spot? (Show a picture, if you want to!)

(And yes, I understand that these might not be the same thing–your favorite spot could be the beach, but you do most of your reading at home . . . in which case, tell me about both!)


I love reading in my bed.  I find it relaxing.   I also use it as a way of going to sleep at night and if I wake up in the middle of the night I read then too.  Sometimes I am tempted to blog in the middle of the night but I have a strict rule with myself and dont I know it doesnt put me to sleep and in fact I have been known to stay awake for hours.  It doesnt take me long when I read in bed to go to sleep so it works for me 🙂
