Well first of all....

Congratulations to Kate, Stef and Felix! I am so excited to welcome baby Caspar into the bloggasphere (although he has been welcomed on many other blogs already!).

I just want to say how excited and how proud I am of you Kate! You carried yourself so beautifully through your pregnancy and will continue to be a fantastic mummy to two beautiful boys!

Also, congrats to Becky, Scott and Bradman on the exciting news that they will shortly be welcoming a little bundle of BOY into their already fab family!


So, the new job!! I am still very excited as I have been offered and have accepted a position in the head office management team for Traffic Footwear. We have stores in Port melb, Sth melb, Hampton, Hawthorn, Richmond and Sorrento and my job will be to ensure the right stock goes to the right stores, that deliveries are made on time, that the point of sale computer system is operating well and is up to date and I will most likely be doing payroll and other bits and pieces too! The best part is I will be working in a very fun and funky office (where my mum also works- but in a different department) with amazing, talented and creative people. I will be sitting right next to the design team. It is a very flexible position which will allow me to work the equivalent of 3 days a week over however many days I like (does that make sense??).

I want to say a belated congrats to Shauna (Dietgirl) on the release of her new book "The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl" which I  happened to notice while meandering through Borders the other day. I will have to save up some moolah and buy this one soon!! You know you've made it when you are on the front table at Borders! Go girl!

On the weightloss front I am doing okay. Slow and steady wins the race (or so they say) and at this rate I'll be coming in 1st!! I did a fitness test this morning and I did much better than I thought I would. 21 pushups (knees) in a minute and 37 crunches! I also had +20 cms for the sit and reach test (where you sit on the floor and do a forward bend reaching your hands towards or past your toes.) which is an excellent score! I used not to do well in those as my tummy got in the way!

Better go- Molly has just woken up and I can hear a faint "mumma" in the distance.

3 of you love me enough to comment...:

Thanks for the congrats! :)

Shauna's book is also in Kmart too. My sister in law just saw it there.

Congratulations on your new career!

Shauna said...

Wahey! congrats on your job, sounds bloody brilliant :)

And I just want to spew from excitement, the front table at Borders!? wheeeeeeeeee!

And Beck is right about KMart, from memory it should be cheaper there, too :)
