Hey Blitz and Admin,
So sorry for not responding sooner; really, I have a hectic job and there's absolutely little time to myself! In fact, the day I had the pleasure of spending time with you both with probably the longest "non-work related" gathering (during office hours) that I've had since I started this job!
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH for the wonderful opportunity to meet you both, and (Admin) for generously picking up the tab, which I'm hoping I can return (the favour) in a follow-up lunch early in the new year (when things get a bit quieter for me)? Please do let me know what your movements will be in January and I'll work on us catching up for a lunch (on me, so this time LEAVE THE CREDIT CARDS BEHNID in the office).
You look amazing, and so much thinner than I could have ever imagine. You're as lovely to chat to in person as you are here in the forum (only sorry I can't do more of both).
Thanks for posting the photo; wow! I REALLY need to shake those winter sins, and I so gotta stop wearing that blouse, It's an old fave from my bigger days and (although it hides a multitude of sins, does tend to make me look (albeit I'm far from "thin") bigger than I actually am).
You're lovelier in person, and I agree with Kim, a gentler soul than the persona that Kim described "powerful" though as a woman, I'm sure you have oodles of that too!
As for me, I've been around, though haven't had the opportunity to "check in" much at all. I will try to do that more often, especially next month. I'm having surgery to get rid of my "water wings" on my arms.
I'll be off work for most of December, so should be able to pop in here more regularly, and see how everyone is travelling (in between my visits to the gym?). Doctor says I can't do as much as I was/am, but should be able to walk on the treadmill (as long as I don't swing my arms) but definitely NO CROSS TRAINERS!!
Take care, and Kim, I'm so glad you had a good time in our fair city (even greeting a few of the locals I see?)
Ahhhhh possums......they hold a special place in my heart (and street)
