Taking the Power Back ....

Sort of.

Have been extremely freaked by last week's incident. Being an analyzer extraordinaire, I have looked at it from all angles and I think I have come up with the conclusion that this man is extremely dangerous, I dealt with him the best I could. The natural me would have usually yelled "get the fuck out of my house", that would have been the worst thing I could have done. The way I dealt with it, I gave him a way out, I didn't make a big deal about it, just acted surprised. I have a mate who's brother is in the CIB as a detective here and I am going to have a quiet chat to him and see what he thinks of this guy's profile.

I desperately want to move. Blair hasn't had to go away this week and is on a course next week, so at least we have a few week's reprieve.

I lost a kg this week. I had stayed the same last week. Yep, with three days of only fruit and veges I managed to not lose a fucken gram!!

The week before that I had stayed the same too.

Ridiculous. So - I am exactly where I was at the end of January.

Went to the big nutrition seminar and it rocked!! Came away with so much enthusiasm, not only for eating right and eating the way nature intended, but - as Damian is a Naturopath - he inspired me a million times over to be that sort of Naturopath. To be the sort of person that is exuberant about my chosen field, walks the walk and still has fun and has the odd night out.

I could go into what Damian talked about for post after post but I suggest you try and get along and see him. He also had Ray Kelly with him, personal trainer from Melbourne that trained both of the Aussie Biggest Loser winners after they left the house up until they won the challenge!! Pretty cool guy, no excuses. Lee-Anne Wan was absent due to being very very sick. So let's send happy thoughts out there for her quick recovery.

I am off to a hen's night with one of my best mate's in Akaroa tomorrow.



We get there at lunch time, it's about and hour and a half away. We then get dressed up in old bridesmaid dresses and are having "The Bridal Amazing Race" where we are doing such things as scootering around the town. Should be a hoot. Then out for dinner and copious amounts of drinking and then back to the holiday bach we have rented for more drinking. Sleeping's Cheating!! The best thing about it ..... it's miles away from this place!!

So, what are you doing this weekend??

Ah Akaroa - I have never been there but Stu used to live there for a couple of years while working with Bob Parker (they were business partners). We have a painting on Akaroa on our lounge wall even.

I'd love to hear Damien doing his talk, I think the guy is neat.

I love Akaroa, its so close too, my friends daughter and her husband own Harbour 71, and we rented out the Beachcomber for a romantic weekend away, was so lovely.

Glad you are getting away for a bit.

I hope the little chat goes well and you come away knowing what to do about that arsehole.
Have a wonderful weekend, sounds like fun.. though not the 'no sleeping' bit! I needs me sleep!
My weekend? Dunno, usually take each day as it comes, it's gunna be wet *sigh* so probably friggin sewing inside.

I'm so sorry what's happened Jules and that you feel frightened and threatened in your own home. Definitely talk to your friends brother, he could give you advice to help reassure you maybe.

Get to know your neighbours. Form your own neighbourhood support group. Get everybody's numbers down. That's what I did after we had our home invasion.

Enjoy your weekend break. Probably just what you need. Is Akaroa based on a French town???

Hope you get some photo's of your weekend away for us :-) Am sure you will have a blast.

Seminar sounds awesome!

I'm off to the Port Fairy Folk Festival for the weekend to get me folked up.

Have a great time at the Hen's night, hopefully it will help take your mind off things for a bit.

I think that's a great idea to talk to your CIB mate, and I can see why you would be keen to move house again, it must be horrible to be scared of being alone in your own home.

Sounds like the seminar was a great inspiration for you :)
