Let me see, what has happened since we last spoke?

Well, I am now the proud owner of an exercise bike, which I (and the girls too) are riding away into the sunset on :)
I find that "interval training" is the most effective way to go - that means riding like a madwoman for 12 seconds, then recovering for 8 seconds etc etc. It is a good cardio workout, and less time on the bike. We have set the downstairs room up as a gym, with the rebounder, skipping rope and aTV and DVD for those exercise programmes I am going to get!

In the meantime, I have got myself a job doing nightfill (stacking shelves) at the local supermarket - I am also waiting to hear about another job - it's a temp office job for 5 months. Hopefully I will get that one too and I can save some money to do some studying.

My plan is to eventually (haven't worked out timing yet) relocate to Tasmania.
I have had enough of the heat and drought here in Queensland, and all my research shows Tassie to be the kind of place I will really enjoy living in.
A slower lifestyle, less people, fantastic food!!

Talk soon...

Oh Flossy ~ you're coming to Tassie!!!
I was brought up in Darwin, and just love living here... I don't want to go on too much about it, but have taken to it like a duck to water.
I love having 4 distinct seasons, the produce is to die for, the scenery awe inspiring.
I now have a garden that is something close to what I've always dreamt of.
You're from NZ originally (please correct me if I'm wrong), so I think the climate would be quite similar.
Good luck with all your all sounds like you're setting up really well, and also with your job hunting!

You put me to shame with your exercise, it's something I really should do, but find so difficult to get started doing. I'm sure if I had a friend to go on power-walks with it'd be something! However I do have a dog, so there's always the impetus for long walks, and she doesn't mind what speed we walk at - the faster the better.

Relocating to Tasmania sounds fabulous, I've heard it's more like England in its temperatures (though I suspect quite a bit warmer). It sounds like a really good thing to do.
