Quick Wednesday Weigh-In

Got out on Monday (and a swim in the afternoon) and again this morning - stunning mornings now that the rain has cleared (at least for a bit):

The next run will be "graduation" (again!). Pretty proud of myself for re-doing this and easing back into it. I think I would have hurt myself again if I launched right back where I left off. I have twinges of plantar faciitis and the hip flexor thing, but they are being kept at bay by running slowly (gotta have some benefits), not too far and stretching/foam rolling.

So, I got on the scales this morning and they said 73.9kg!! Woo hoo! I realised I didn't have my phone to take the pic with me, so went and got it, and then:

71.4kg - 157.4 lbs
I assure you I did not excrete anything in the 30 seconds it took to get my phone. I hopped off and on multiple times and it stayed at 71.4 or 71.2 (but that is just getting ridiculous).

So, I weigh around 71-74kg. Roughly. Who knows?

Headed up to Sydney for a couple of days of shopping, musicals and hanging out with my brother (and mum). Might go for a walk. But I think I'll save "graduation" until I get home and puppy can come with me - he's been there every step of the way, excreting and running. So see you then!


  1. That is nearly 13 pounds (the only way my brain works)! You should be noticing it in your clothes now. Congratulations! And double that for being almost through the program.

    1. I'm starting to get looser pants - yay! I think Sydney undid a lot of good work, but I'll keep plugging away!

I see...

We've had a couple of interesting weeks here. Video Boy has inherited his mother's shocking vision - he has myopia (commonly known as short-sightedness or near-sightedness). It occurs when the eyes focus light in front of the retina, leading to unfocussed vision.

Close up is usually OK, but distance vision is pretty fuzzy:

For me, even the couple would have been blurry! I was "medically blind" which meant I got my optometrist fees covered by Medicare (yay!).

So, Video Boy has had glasses for a couple of years now - he has broken one pair and then lost the replacement pair (grrr) and so for a couple of months, his world has looked like the picture on the right...and he was squinting to watch TV, read signs, pretty much all the time.
So, we went off to the optometrist last week to get us some new glasses!
The optometrist is up on all the latest research - with Wombat Girl, we bought a software program with special "lenses" and she had to do a practice session…

Creating order from chaos...

We have been diving headlong into an amazing rabbit trail of maths, and science and art and if I don't share with you some of these thoughts and experiences and links they will be lost forever like much of the mists swirling through my brain!

And there is SOOO much good stuff whirring through my brain that I don't know where to logically start and how to group it all so it might make some sense, so instead, I think I will just let you follow our story - our rabbit trail that led to so much good stuff...and maybe, you will like some of it too!

After viewing Vi Hart's diatribe on parabolas, the kids were keen to actually graph some parabolas. But before we actually got to that, Hubby wanted see the video, so we watched it again, and that led us to reviewing the ones on spirals and fibonacci:

As we were watching, Video Boy grabbed the graph paper (because you always have spare graph paper lying around, don't you?) and started experimenting with the fibonacci spirals shown…

52 Ancestors - So Far Away

This week's #52ancestorsin52weeks is Father's Day - but of course, it's not Father's Day in Australia, so I'm going to do the theme we had a couple of weeks ago when I was away - So Far Away.

When you first start doing your family tree, it's exciting to see how "far back" you can go with your branches. Until last weekend, the furthest back on my direct line was Benjamin Broome, my 9th great-grandfather born in 1646 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England (grandfather of John Broom in my carpet story), which I thought was a long way back!

Last weekend, I was searching back to see if I could see a link between the Freemans on my Dad's side and the Freemans on my Mum's side (spoiler alert - not yet). Anyway, I was having a search on Joseph Freeman (my 5th great-grandfather born in Gloucestershire, England in 1765) and his wife - Sarah Arkell (my 5th great-grandmother also from Gloucestershire, England, born in 1767). Well, I had her father John…
