I always share chocolate - because the more you eat, the less I eat and the more calories you get...

Then again, there is this problem of a stash of haighs dark choc pastilles - strictly for medicinal purposes, you understand.

Played some more hockey against the extremely feral Enfield with a very unhappy umpire - started the game by giving free hits against anyone who actually got the ball so a lot of whistle for no reason we could figure.

And us being the top team - naturally played like crap against Enfield the bottom team. Always happens.

Finally we scored when I miss-hit the ball up the side line, their defender missed it but it was going so slowly our winger actually got it and sent it into the circle to be finished off by the centre forward. I guess my other hits were too hard.

And the blackwood team I umpired last week (for AHC) asked me to umpire this week for them. And of course there was one player on their team who didn't like me calling her up for barging other players and said I was wrong when I said she has to go around them. Sigh. I hate being called "wrong". But I know which one of us has studied the rules and practiced and consulted with experts on the rules, so I know which one of us is more likely to be right. She's in for a shock if her team make the finals, if she doesn't learn.

I love chocolate ,my girlfriend hides it from me, she soon found out that she could'nt leave it in the fridge all week like she did when she first met me,so now she hides it. :D
Come to think of it she hides the red wine to, but if you open a bottle you gotta drink the whole lot hey? the wine rack has empty bottles in it or white wine i don't like white.[xx(]

hmm

Seems like good reasons to hide wine and chocolate from GF also. [^|^]

I know at least one house where wine doesn't keep at all. No need for cellar there.

Supply problems do remind me of a 4WD trip where I asked my fellow travellers (my dad and my brother) how much chocolate they'd eat in a week or so - and they said none.

And this was fine until I showed up with Haighs dark chocolate. Apparently this doesn't count as chocolate - it belongs to some higher order of food and probably has no calories either. So they both ate quite a bit of my stash. Personally I don't rate that stuff that is contaminated with lots of milk as "chocolate". "candy" perhaps but "chocolate" no.

And if anyone watched the cook and the chef last Wednesday - that coffee foam and seaweed and chocolate and whatever stuff that Simon served up - tastes revolting and looks like some accident my puppy made. Yes - you can get it at the Hilton Brasserie - if you manage to get the attention of the wait staff. I really shouldn't have bothered. Imagine vaguely chocolate flavoured tofu and you're close. Then again if you like tofu - Simon does - then maybe it's ok. Personally I think it's a waste of 70% cocoa couverture. [xx(]

Going to the good food and wine show this weekend, lucky it's not the parmy and pint show otherwise I could do some serious damage!

Not liking this getting up in the dark, coming home in the dark cold spell we are having here in Vic at the moment, doing nothing for my motivation. Luckily we have a free gym here at work so I can sacrifice my lunch for weights session and cardio after work while the traffic dies down.

Call me a girlyman, but I am still to go for a dive in the winter months. I spend a lot of time on the water all rugged up, but still have to take the plunge. I'm sure it's ok...once you're in...

Early morning calls to car fires are not good. Have to have play on the computer, a cuppa,a piece of toast & read of my book to eventually get back to sleep- then I sleep for half the day & miss the winter sunshine!

Off to the park now with miss dog so we can enjoy it :)

Hi all.. well it's wet and cold here in good old South Australia,
don't we just love it [{=*] .Well i got heaps of exercise today,
i'm still smashing up our old cement swimming pool, theirs no access for a bobcat, so we had to settle for me ( an old lion )
with a sledge hammer and crow bar :D [8D]. With all this exercise comes good food and my favourite drink- Coopers Stout- My girl ilona is doing a new recipe ( Sticky and Crispy chicken thighs with squashed new potatoes and tomatoes ) from Jamie Oliver :D [8D].. OH i'll try not to post anything on here after i've had a few drinks... it's a bugger when i have to delete everything the next day. [:I] [:-}]

I didn't get mine :(
Never mind- my son made me one of his super dooper chicken, dijon mustard, cheese, lettuce & jalapino sangas at 10pm last night.
Not that I really needed it on top of my tea & then later coffee & gingernuts. Boredom is a bad thing when plans get changed & you end up with nothing to do [^()^][^|^] :(

I've been having wistful thoughts of toasted sandwiches of mayo, roast chicken and tasty cheese or even roast lamb and chutney in toasted sandwiches...

First I've got to thaw the lamb. Tonight's dinner was a boiled egg and toast - a bit sad but sheesh my kitchen is FREEZING.

Been going for extremely long walks with dog-puppy. Doesn't seem to slow her down any but she and I both eat more afterwards. I still don't understand her refusal to be caught either before the walk or at the end of it. Means she spends a lot more time on the lead than she really needs to if I have time constraints.

LOL Bunyip!
Indy is "about" 3 and still is a pain to put the lead on. She is much better at the park off leash than she was. She doesn't run of after other dogs like she used to, she says hello, has a sniff & a little play then comes when called- so they grow up eventually! I put her on the lead when naughty & she would much rather be off it at the park thats for sure. So maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks?????

My friend asked how to make good old New Zealand Cheese Rolls the other day when we were walking, so my wistfull thoughts are for cheese rolls.I have Kraft Cheese & Safeway thin white bakery bread on my shopping list- they will be nice with a bowl of soup on these cold days :)

If all goes well with the medical thursday, I will have a job- after a year without one- so things might get a bit more on track with a bit less time to spend in the kitchen cooking things to eat?

Well Im hoping anyway [^=^]

I've been walking the dog for an hour or so every day, sometimes twice a day.

Had a two weekend break from playing hockey but umpired four games. Umpiring is not the same as playing though.

Played last Saturday - won 4-0, though the game felt harder than this, had to wake our goalie up a couple of times when our team managed to set the opposition up for fast breaks. I hate when I'm open for a square pass and my team passes straight ahead to the opposition's best forward(s). Cos I'm in no position to stop the break then. Grr. Sheep stations? I always play for sheep stations...

Anyway I'm fairly stiff now after a lot of sprints and some serious gardening on Sunday. Went for a long walk around the burbs topped off by a 30 minute session of "try to catch the dog" on our local tennis courts. Sigh. She likes that game. Even lying down for ten minute rest doesn't fool her. [B)]

Finally got onto a hockey team that says they can fit me into a team that isn't full of old foot shufflers. And as a bonus they train on turf (Thusday)and possibly play on turf on weekends. :D

PT sessions are sorted for Wednesday night but might see if i can get at least two days a week in.

Apart from that my work and family time is pretty full up at the moment.

YMCC and i will find out at training tomorrow what grade but i would guess about 6th grade, provisional 3 in Perth's starnge gradings. If that doesn't work out UWA said there is a spot available in one of their teams as well. I don't know any of the guys in any teams so it doesn't matter which club i play with i'm just excited to get back into it.

Had a PT session tonight, 30 mins after dinner which wasn't a real good idea but got through it.

So my new exercise regime will be

Monday = PT
Wednesday = PT
Thursday = Hockey training
Sat or Sunday = Hockey game + maybe a walk to the park

I dobbed myself into playing in the goals again. So that will be possibly two games on the weekend (1 as goalie & 1 in the field).

With my new position at work and being at home my diet has improved heaps (no biscuits) tied with getting back into exercise and the weight seems to be falling off, according to my scales it's the fat that is going so even better. :D

had a big hockey weekend

Played on Saturday and we won 7-1 - dammit why did we let one in sigh. This weekend is the big show down against our other club team - currently 2nd on the ladder - after us and some of our best players will be away.

And I played 5 x 25 minute games and umpired 3 including the grand final of the veterans carnival at Woodville on Sunday.

Had blisters in places I've never had blisters before, after all that. [^?^]
