epic fail at worm farming :-(

I'm a worm murderer!! 8-O

The worms are either hybernating for the autumn .... or there aren't any left! .. well thats just sooooo inconvenient - what am I supposed to do with my scraps! seriously, how rude.. if I put them in the compost bin the crows pick the lids off and pick all the stuff out and throw it everywhere (you would think they would do me a favour and eat the stuff they get out but noooooooooo lets just piss her off and throw it everywhere!!!

farm ute knowhow

today I swapped the comfort of central locking smooth ride and working 'extras' for an aging hilux commonly known as the ute!

Three things I learnt today during my 15minute excursion to work:

1: You can't swig berocca whilst driving a hilux... old hiluxs' seek out bumps in the road and destroy the occupants! (ahem not that I drink n drive on a regular basis this morning was an exception!

2: It has free air (windows down)! who knew!!

3: Simply putting the key in the drivers side door does NOT actually lock ALL doors similtaneously ...move around to each door individually and lock!

OH! and note to self:- when using the windscreen washer turn free air off (close windows) ...

what was i thinking...

so I thought ok this Wii thing can't be all that hard... I chose the first block of exercises, and off I went. It was great .. up to set 5 with 8 repetitions per set. I was going great guns was even thinking that every afternoon I could manage this, well when the boys weren't home of course .. we certainly do not want them knowing and certainly not watching OMG heaven forbid that thought (hence why the Wii is locked - see note below however). Well I was onto exercise 6 and dived into the side lunges with gusto only to feel that twang when you slow down and assess the situation.. Ok now is there pain? no pain ok back into it ..Oh wait that was another twang resulting in pain but still not going to badly really for someone who hasn't got back into the walking 6ks in 50mins no I thought I was going really well. I thought I might just take the next set a bit slow. up popped the next set - squats and forward lunges .. Yea nah no way was subjecting the twang to a full on pulled muscle. Ok great set stop while you are ahead went the thought process. All good!
Two hours later as I went skidding into the loo as I was busting.. lowered the self almost onto the seat ... FREEZE OUCH WTF was that .. omg my thighs were killing me and I could barely make it to the sitting position. How the hell was I to get up off the seat .. with several groans and using my hands firmly planted on the walls for support I succeeded in getting upright.
... I have no qualms standing! walking is another issue ...

oh and the locked Wii ....yea its locked right after u turn it on and there on the screen in huge letters is a graph with your BMI and weight range!... brilliant!!!

One more piece of gadgetry to plug into the never ends

So I have a Wii .. one of those new fitness thingys that I need someone to plug into the tv and then sort out all the plugs, cords and buttons etc not to mention yet another remote control device oh wait no its called a "Wii remote" ..with the help of my sister - who I might add is one of those women that makes me sick with her complete knowledge of all things gadgety. Give her a cord and she totally knows where to stick it or umm plug it so to speak ... anyway I digress ... Lets call her Ms T ..Ms T sorts out the Wii and shows me how to set up my "She Wii" well her version of shows me is that she is in complete control of the "Wii remote" lol ... so we put all the information in and right before my eyes the she wii grows! Did you see that I say to Ms T who by the way is right now laughing her little head off at the expression on my face at the sheer audacity of the growing figure that is supposed to be my "Wii person".
My Wii fit age is great I say. This can't be all that bad ..thats before the BMI so rudely shows up on the screen ..Thank god there is a password on this thing ...!!!
