Arglebargle. The week is nearly finished!

Yesterday I went and watched Breaking Dawn with a few friends. I enjoyed it as much as I'd thought I would... which meant that it wasn't entirely horrible. I'd absolutely hated the book and threw it across the room a few times while I was in the process of reading it, fortunately the movie didn't pain me quite as much. A few rolled eyes here and there, a squirm when the baby's name was revealed. In the end it was tolerable. If I'm honest, I'm a rom-com junkie, so I will probably watch the movie another 2 or 3 times when it comes out on dvd. But only because I have to! :-P

I kind of feel like I'm marking time until the holidays kick in when I'm at work, which is terrible since there are still 3 weeks left! Today wasn't so bad though. I only had a couple of clients, but I actually saw some amazing progress with a little boy I've been tearing my hair out over for the last 2 months. Win! I also got to watch a couple of the other girls at work give a workshop on fussy feeders which was really great. The two of them are fabulous presenters, which makes me wonder how painful my workshops are... I like the fridge handout I got from them too. FOOD IS FUN! PLAY! TOUCH! SMELL! TASTE! I'm kind of tempted to actually put it on my fridge as a reminder to eat and enjoy it.

The most exciting thing to happen today though? I received my photobook of pictures from my trip overseas!! It looks pretty amazing and I am SO happy with it. I had been excited all week to receive it, and then got absolutely terrified as I drove home from work to pick it up. What if I looked really fat in all of the pictures? What if they'd only looked good in small ipad screen size? Fortunately, I like the vast majority, excluding perhaps the front cover where my double chin is painfully apparent. It was okay in the slightly smaller size inside the book... but in A4 size it is just a little bit much. I'm also wondering if it looks a wee bit self absorbed to have a book with me on the front cover, particularly since I'd originally wanted it to be a coffee table book. You know what though? It's my book and I could do whatever I wanted with it. Why shouldn't I be on the front cover? Anyway, I got a little distracted from the point there. I am really proud of it and I can't wait to show it off to everyone I know!

Sorry for the boring ramble that this post was. Just felt like talking to someone, even if they're just a disembodied internet someone, or possibly noone at all.

Time to make a quick exit.


  1. Your relationship sounds like my relationships. When you believe already that you're bad/fat/wrong in some fashion, it's easy for someone else to convince you of those things. It's something that I'm trying to work on, but progress is so slow. It's like, I can logically convince myself that I'm not a bad person, that I'm actually pretty good, but apparently logically knowing something & actually believing it & feeling it are very very different things.

    I'm glad you're out of your not-so-happy relationship. It sounds like you're happier now.

    And thank you for your support; you're completely lovely. <3
